This is the second book in The Scottish Billionaire series.
Alec: Lumen is amazing. She brings out the playful, relaxed side of me, but fate doesn’t seem to agree we belong together. And now, my ex pops back into my life and wants to make a go of it again so our daughter can have a real family. I’m torn between what’s best for my daughter or following my feelings for Lumen.
Lumen: Just when our relationship was going great, Alec basically blows me off the minute his ex is back in town. He texted that he needs a break while he figures out what’s going on with his family. And to add fuel to the fire, someone told my principal about the massage parlor job I had before I started teaching, like it was something illegal. Who else knew about that job but Alec? I’m crushed. This is why I don’t do relationships.
Third-grade teacher Lumen Browne and multi-billionaire CEO Alec McCrae are an unlikely couple, but they’re willing to defy the odds. As they struggle to fit into each other’s lives, they must decide if they’re willing to fight for their love…or walk away.
I enjoyed reading this book. I like the characters, the story is good and the plot developed well.
I like Lumen. She’s a good character and I love her relationship with Evanne. She’s a sweet character. I also love how she’s helping the Foster kids. She’s just generally a nice person. I also love Alec. He needs to think about himself more though. When Keli turns up and hangs around, he’s just putting up with it for the sake of Evanne. He knows he likes Lumen and not her, yet puts up with Keli. I was happy at the end when he realised what he wanted.
The storyline is good. I liked how their relationship is developing, until Keli got in the way. I like that the books have both of their points of view. It good to see how they both think, and often get assume things wrong. I’m enjoying seeing the battle Alec is having with himself over Lumen.
Overall, this book was great and an easy read. I’m looking forward to the next one and I’d definitely recommend this series.
My rating: 5/5*
