  • This is a second chance/revenge story of a hero who never got over the heroine jilting him seven years before. This is a trope I love, but I ended up not loving this story. Backstory:Hero proposed to doctor heroine seven years before. Heroine wanted to continue her studies, but hero wouldn’t compromise. They broke up, leaving the heroine broken-hearted and the hero a womanizer. The heroine’s family (abusive father, doormat mother, half brothers and sister) all disowned her for jilting the ri [...]


  • Middle of the road Lynne Graham. Kind of different in that the child involved is her sister's but using the heroine's donated eggs. The hero is not the father but is a cousin. He is however the child's legal guardian and so has the child to hold over the heroine's head to get her to be his mistress. The emotions here seemed to ramp up and fizzle out and the heroine while not really a total doormat sure leaned that way. I don't mind if you're going to turn into a puddle of goo if the hero touches [...]


  • Lynne Graham has written a lot -- and I mean a lot of Harlequin Presents novels. Chief among the similarities are her heroes always having black/golden eyes (I don't see the overlap. Brown/golden might be more believable in terms of eye color) and really appalling adverbs and adjectives. Well, appalling depending on your views. Creative, but really, at times I wish she'd tone down her freedom with descriptions. "Superbly male" is one of her favorite descriptions and kind of makes me gag. One I f [...]


  • I'd give this book 2.5 stars. I'm not sure why other reviewers describe Ella as not being a pushover. In the very beginning of the book she gives up her career and home at the hero's request and allows him to treat her as his "dress-up doll." I wouldn't describe her arguments with Ari as standing up to him, either, since she just comes across as a emotional ninny. The book does take a more positive turn in the middle of the book, but I think I'm just tired of the "I hate him, but I can't resist [...]


  • Typical blackmailed mistress Presents, but better than many I've read. The heroine isn't too much of a doormat (though for a doctor, makes some pretty basic mistakes); the hero is a major jerk, of course, but does see the error of his ways. The conflict was also interesting: the hero and heroine had been in love seven years previously, but his assumption that she would give up her career to marry him made them fight. His hold over her is her niece, whom she was the egg donor for. (!) Good read f [...]


  • Not a bad book, but why does the heroine ALWAYS give in so fast. At least attempt to give the fool a challenge. So hard to believe that a surgeon would give up everything to just become a nanny/mistress to your own child/ex fiancée. Why does the hero always have to put sex in the "deal". Anyway, like I said it wasn't a bad book. Very quick read.


  • Greek tycoon Aristandros and Dr. Ella were engaged but Ella ended it so she could become a doctor and a career woman. Years later he has sole custody of little Callie, Ella's niece. He asks Ella to be his mistress and in return he will allow her access to little Callie.Heroine was very feisty and strong. She was also a successful doctor. Hero was your typical tycoon but I thought he was very sexy and you could tell he adored Ella! Cute romance!


  • absolutely loved it! it was obvious dat ari was very much in love wid ella. they were both wrong 7 years ago and it took all this time for them to catch up. ella was very naive where her sister was concerned. she acted foolishly and had to pay the consequences. luckily for her, ari did love her, had been in love wid her all along!


  • for once the heroine is not a doormat, or not so much. I loved she remembered to have a backbone and acted consequently. I hated the hero used her niece to blackmail her and the contract he made her sign was horrible. I'm glad he admitted he was an a@@ in the end.


  • This book is another trashy romance and just what I would expect from Harlequin. It was a fun read. But was very unrealistic and put the woman in the role of a submissive pushover. I am not sure if I would recommend it because I am embarassed that I have read it : )


  • Predictable and unrealistic, what lady MD after ten years of schooling would think signing such a contract is ok, and jump in head first selling her place and quitting her job to be someones plaything for the sake of a baby she has never seen?


  • UpdatedMay/27/2015From 1 to 10 (My personal rating scale): 7.5 This story wasn't memorable for me. I can't remember anything about the book. It needs a reread :)


  • 7 yrs ago 25 yr old tycoon Ari (aristandros Xenakis) asked Ella a 21 yr old med student to marry him, she says yes, he announces that she is giving up medicine, she says no to that and he dumps her. 7 yrs later she's still a virgin and he's been sowing his oats, proving to her that he wasn't the faithful type. (She thought he would cheat since her abusive stepfather always cheated on her mom). She donated eggs to her sister and his cousin, who die leaving Ella's biliogical child Callie to Ari as [...]


  • This book was a train wreck. Aristandros was a manipulative emotionally abusive man and yet even though she says he's manipulative she doesn't leave. I mean if she wants he 'daughter' that bad why didn't she just take the contract to the courts and say he's blackmailing her because no way are they going to let him keep the kid with that. Also his sudden turn around at the end was ridiculous and unbelievable.



  • A nice read at two in the morning when I could not sleep.And at least Lynne Graham let this heroine keep her career after marriage.


  • Shes a medical doctor Left him do study. The little girl looks just like her She first met our hero, Ari, in Greece through a night out with her older sister and it was clear to the readers that he was head over heels from the beginning. She was young and had a very submissive mother, a violent, unfaithful stepfather who was also very socially ambitious. They and her older sister were keen to get in good with Ari, who was the requisite Greek tycoon-to-be. When he proposed, she had plans to go to [...]


  • Whaat? Whoa, that's was all kinds of lame. The hero did two bad things and a third to mess with the heroine's family and did nothing to make up for ANY of his behavior. Anytime the heroine decides 'I need some space' or 'I've had quite enough of this' the author makes her decision to stand tall out to be a mistaket something I can root for. Bad hero, underwritten heroine. And that poor child!!! She had a shitty guardian dragging her around and never being raised stably. Seriously, that baby dese [...]


  • No entiendo el afán de estas autoras por escribir libros sobre mujeres tontas y manejables a las que les encanta perder la dignidad y ser humilladas por machos sin cerebro, pero que como son tan ricos, atractivos y buenos en la cama, está bien que hagan lo que quieran. Es la típica historia cliché de siempre. La verdad no vale la pena hablar mucho sobre este libro, uno más en la lista de "Libros que preferiría olvidar"


  • ,El dulce sabor de la venganzaLa historia no está mal y es bastante predecible,pero a veces uno necesita leer estos libros gusta esta autora sus historias tienen una intriga ,pasión y suspenso que me gusta.


  • I read this book a few months ago and after reading it, i felt so gutted i couldn't even read for a couple of weeks. This book absolutely made me feel so truly and utterly drained -that had it been a paperback i would have gladly torn it up and burnt it to be rid of it. This is the only book of LG that I've read and can say without any regret that it's horrible and should have never been written. The hero Ari is beyond overbearing, his an arrogant pompous ass of a man. The title "man" is even to [...]


  • This is one of the few Lynne Graham books that I managed to finish. In short, I like the writings - good amount of tensionsband UST and misubderstanding - but I have problems with the characters, especially the hero. Throughout the whole book, the hero comes off as obsessive control freak. What's with the agreement and everything? He evem told her how to dress. And in the last bit of the story, ugh! If he didn't do that for security reasons, I would very much question the why the heroine even lo [...]


  • Ella is a doctor who donated her eggs to her sister so she can bear a child. After the death of her sister and her husband she wants the custody of the child, however the child has been under the legal guardianship of her ex-fiance Aristandros Xenakis. She asks him for being involved in the life of the child. He offers her the chance in exchange of her being his mistress!They were deeply in love but broke up before seven years when Ari expected her to put him and marriage before her career as do [...]


  • Dr. Ella Smithson had believed in her sister, not knowing that the jealousy inside her had already cost Ella the love of her life. Susie had come to her and asked her to donate her eggs so that ?Susie and her husband could have a child. Now, the child she had never been allowed to meet, is an orphan in the hands of the man she had loved and lost.Greek tycoon Aristandros Xenakis is definately one to hold a grudge. Having his engagement ended by Ella just after it took place so she could become a [...]


  • I think this might be the bestselling M&B book of all time. It's listed first on the website, and Graham is meant to be the bestselling M&B author. So I had to read it! Graham's an excellent writer and she doesn't waste time on secondary characters and subplots. It's all told from Ella's point of view, so it was difficult to see Ari as a sympathetic character. He's a ruthless, demanding man and doesn't care who knows it. It got a little uncomfortable for me just before the ending because [...]


  • This is a a feel good fast read book. Lots of good shouting matches between the two main characters and how Ella makes Aristandros back down on his blackmailing. He (Ari) has custody of Ella's Niece Callie after Ella's sister and her husband have a car accident and was killed. Ella wants access to see her niece and he is very mad at Ella (Ari is) as 4 years before she had made a fool out of him at the engagement party for them and left him. He wants revenge, so hencee blackmail. Very good read.


  • Ari and Ella are hot, hot, hot together. It's not very often I get to say that with M&B couple. Unfortunately, individually, neither of them are very likable or relate-able. Half of their problem would be easily solve had they just took the time to freakin' communicate! For that, I'd have to give this 3.5 stars. Otherwise, I'd gladly give this at least a 4.


  • I should have give a solid 5 starsif it's not for the anticlimax ending hmphd with the ridiculously high expectation, a strong heroine and that, well, it kind of disappointed me more okay read.


  • 2.5 starsThese books are so crazy, but hard not to buy! The steam in this one was really nice too! I call them in between books between reading a full length novel, sometimes I pull one of these out.
