When Greek billionaire Dimitri Petronides is forced to give up Xandra Fortune, his beautiful mistress, he's certain she won't be too distraught. For all the intense passion they've shared, she's never let him into her heart, and such a commitment-shy woman could never be his wife....

But after their split Dimitri discovers that Xandra Fortune is not who he thought she was--and she is also pregnant with his child. Now he has to track her down and claim his mistress as his wife!
This was a re-read for me and I enjoyed it this time around just as much as I did the first time. Xandra was a famous model who was dating Dimitri and when he is called home she continues to work not knowing her world is about to crumble around her.

My favorite parts are when they challenge each other. When they break up its done in such a hard way that hurts them both because Dimitri wants to please his favorite relative instead of standing up for himself and what he wants.  When Dimitri realizes his mistake he id devasted to learn that Xandra is gone and not even the best detectives he's hired can find her.

Invited to a private party he's given some seriously devastating news and is left to decide who he wants to be now. Due to stubbornness, these two are at odds and they struggle to find the comfortable ground they once inhabited. They each have someone they were working to protect and in doing so they end up facing off. Dimitri is playing catch up and is hoping his actions now will speak louder than his words then did.

I loved how they came back together and that they were both so wary but trying to get to a happy place.  Personally, I would have taken my family to task even if it made them mad at me, you're not talking to me like that but enjoying the fruits of my labor. Just not going to happen.  I loved the friendships and other familial relationships that we got to see in the book and I loved how great they were as siblings.  As a couple, they worked well and they were so sensual together. I loved how Xandra would take him to task at times when he said something so side-eye worthy.

Fantastic romance, well-written characters, a great second chance romance.  I say it's a great read for being poolside.
Enjoy poolside or ar the beach, heck even on the back porch, 
Happy Reading my loves,
