Synopsis:Passion was never in the bargain
Addison Reed lost her fiancé, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect his legacy. When the gorgeous and arrogant landowner, Brazilian billionaire Bruno Duarte, who is thwarting her at every turn, refuses to meet with her, she puts her plan into action.
He will listen to her
Bruno’s plan was simple: return to Brazil and marry to fulfill his father’s dying wish. But when his engagement crumbles, and he’s then stranded with an idealistic woman hell-bent on saving a tribe of people on his land, he sees the perfect solution. If his feisty and passionate abductor agrees to a bogus marriage, he’ll relocate the tribe.
With the Brazilian heat rivaling the growing heat of their desire, will Bruno and Addison abandon their respective plans and give in to each other, or will their differences tear them apart?
It was a little confused about how this was going to work. Addison kidnapping Bruno. Really? It was just hard for me to see a woman kidnapping a grown man, all just to get him to agree to her plans.
From the beginning, you could feel the chemistry between the two. I thought just maybe Addie wouldn't go through with her plan of kidnapping. However I was wrong.
For the most part, this was a good book. Bruno took a little of getting use to though. He has the cocky attitude and confidence of a billionaire but he is also a little rough around the edges. I also felt bad for him that his family is ashamed of him. I was so angry when I found out why he was banished.
Addison is loyal and stubborn. She has a big heart for the tribe that has helped her in her time of need. She stands up to those who she believes is wrong, but she is also shy at times.
I liked reading the thoughts of both characters as they struggled with their feelings towards each other. Like I said, from the beginning, you could feel the chemistry between the two and when they finally come together......well, you'll just have to read it for yourself!
