Book Review 👩🏻‍💻

Description:
Sign: Capricorn

He loves power, material success…and sex.

Erica Silver has never done things the “usual” way. A single mom working towards a degree in psychology, she’s paying her way as an exotic dancer. No one can tell Erica how to live her life…especially not some handsome, arrogant Greek stranger, who wants to take her son away from his “unfit” mother.

Successful entrepreneur Tito Makris has no choice but to fulfill his best friend’s last wish. He must bring his friend’s son to Greece to claim a multi-billion euro legacy. Still, taking the boy from his mother-however tarnished she may be-is pretty much the last thing Tito wants. So he offers Erica a radical choice: marry him and stay with her son…or lose the boy-and him-forever.

 

Review:

I read The Greek Tycoon’s Tarnished Bride by Rachel Lyndhurst in an afternoon. 

Tito Makris is looking for his friend’s baby. He made promises that he intends to keep, but finding him and bringing him home, are two different things. After finding the mother and child, Tito must do something that goes against all he stands for, he will have to secure the child’s future by marrying the baby’s mother. Or threatening to take the child away and calling her an unfit mother. 

Tito is a man that likes to be in control, so when Erica tells him no, this drives him nuts. Women usually fall at his feet. And he is a little worried about his attraction to her. 

Erica fell in love with a guy from Greece, she became pregnant.  They had made plans, he said he loved her, and said he would be back for her, but he never came back. So she carries on, and the only job opening that gives her time to look after her son and earn money is to work in a strip joint. (She wants to finish her education as she is still at college, which Tito is unaware of) This is where Tito finds her, so he immediately assumes she is without morals. 

Erica knows that her son deserves the best, and marrying Tito will endure her son’s future, but marrying Tito is a little too much. She finds him arrogant, but sexy. But Tito wins and they marry and go to Greece.  They both agree that this is a marriage in name only, but neither person is aware of the others attraction. 

The rest of the characters in this book were horrid, I’m surprised that Erica and Tito grew up as well as they did. 

The book starts out with them as enemies, and slowly Tito realises that she is a good mom, and he dotes on the child. Each of them coming to think that maybe they could make it work between them. 

I liked where it was set in England and Greece. The way the author was very descriptive, and at times I could imagine myself there.

It was a fun afternoon read, yes a little predictable, we all know there is a happy ending, but the journey is half the fun😉
