Megan Carlton’s secret affair with financier Brandon Knight ended when he pulled off a hostile takeover of her family’s hotel empire and then kissed another woman. Broke and alone, Megan starts a new life and learns to stand on her own, then Brandon finds her serving coffee and surviving on tips and tries to pull her back into her old life and his arms. She thought she was over him, and she certainly can’t ever trust him again. But what her head knows and her heart feels are two different things.
Brandon was used to always getting what he wanted, then the woman he loves disappeared without a word. When he finds her months later working as a barista, he wonders if she’s suffering from amnesia. Getting a scalding Americano to the chest proves she recognizes him, but she’s got the situation—and him—all wrong. Now all he has to do is prove it.
Megan Carlton is struggling to make ends meet. She has fallen from high society after her father’s company was bought out by her former lover Brandon Knight. Brandon finds Megan working in a coffee shop after months of not knowing where she is at. After he finds her, he is determined to keep her safe. Megan is just as determined to stay independent. Brandon wants to prove to Megan that she is the only one for him. After seeing him kiss someone else Megan is finding that hard to believe. Brandon is willing to do what it takes to show his feelings for Megan.
In an Oyster Shell – A steamy romance that has its setbacks but was a fun read.
The Pearls – I like the idea of a riches to rags type story. It’s different there are not a lot of stories out there about the fall from high society. I like that Megan gets a second chance at the life she knows with Brandon. Though it doesn’t seem that she’s going to take it. The struggle of Megan’s pride over what she needed was a real struggle indeed. It made up a lot of the story.
I liked Brandon as a character. He was put together and knew what he wanted. He wasn’t too prideful. He put his money where is mouth was. He was a great love interest.
The romance was the highlight of the book. It was nice that the romance came mostly from Brandon. I like when the guy pursues the girl.
The Sand – Megan was stubborn to a fault. She was unreasonable most of the book. It was a frustrating factor for me. Megan assumed a lot and created a lot of unnecessary drama.
