Her life had never been a fairy tale. Adopted at birth, Isabella never felt like she fit in. All she ever wanted was a happy family and a love of her own. When she suddenly became a single mother of two, her life changed for the worst until she ran into a handsome stranger.

A billionaire playboy, Gabriel had lived a charmed life. Never one to settle down, he didn’t understand why he was drawn to this woman he knew his father would never accept. Still, one date leads to another and suddenly he had the life he never knew he always wanted.

Together, their life was perfect, until the lies were exposed. Then, their happily ever after couldn’t be further away.



I’m just eh on this book. It wasn’t bad but just didn’t seem believable. And of course Gabriel was a bit controlling – whether he realized it or not. I do think that he and Isabella brought out the best in each other but I don’t think I felt a connection to either character.

I liked some of the friends better than these two. Jessie was fun, Brad was solid and even Matty was endearing when we got to see a bit more of him near the end.

I did like that they didn’t have sex until married but they did almost everything else and it was a bit more graphic than I was expecting.

We give it 3 paws.  You may like the book more than I did since everyone has different tastes.
