Scott Sebastian is a liar.

Fitting, since I’m a liar too.

Yet there’s no place for me in his glittering world of half-truths.

With all our secrets in the open, I should stop trying. What I’ve learned should send me running far away. I can’t keep pining for a man in love if I’m not the woman he’s in love with.

But it’s not that easy to escape the Sebastians. I already knew they owned this city.

Now I’ll find out if they also own their son. 


**** My Review ****

Where do all those lies and secrets lead? What to do when the words sound so different from the deeds? Do those hands, that caressed every inch of her body, now belong to another woman? Will those sinful lips now bring pleasure to the other one? Is there a way out of the maze? Is there an end to the lies, half-truths and that unbearable pain?

In ‘Man in Charge’ we were delighted to see how the gentle spark between Tess and Scott turned into those powerful flames of passion and belonging. Two hearts merged into one beat. She-not even a proper assistant, he-the powerful, corporate heir, burdened by the legacy of his last name. But even the most powerful families hide great secrets, rules that must be obeyed, prices that have to be paid…. But is Scott willing to pay such a price? Can he sacrifice everything in order to satisfy someone else’s plans? Can he just give up?

After the unbearable cliffhanger, I have no words to explain how eagerly I wanted to have this final book in my hands, and Laurelin Paige definitely managed to create a nice conclusion to Tess and Scott’s story. A sexy and sweet story, set in the harsh and calculated world of the rich and powerful, where true feelings are a sign of weakness and stupidity.

After devouring ‘Man in Charge’ and that hell of a bombshell at the end, I really expected a book that will be so intense and gripping, filled with lots of angst and drama. Taking into consideration her previous books, I expected a heavy read that will shock and delight me at the same time and most definitely push me out of my comfort zone. 

Well, that was not the case here. The plot, a bit predictable, is so sweet and funny at times. A light-hearted romance that will not pull you into a whirlwind of emotions, but will relax you with the comfort and sweetness. The characters are consistent with the first book at the beginning, and continue to develop and grow, showing more depth and aspects that were not visible in the first book. The sweet and caring Tess remains true to her beliefs, showing more determination and persistence. Strong and vulnerable at the same time, she definitely manages to bring this cocky man to his knees. Scott, on the other hand, transits from the powerful and arrogant man in charge to the swoon-worthy and romantic man in love, willing to do everything for the love of his life. A man willing to confront everybody, to overcome every obstacle in order to see his Tess happy and loved. And the chemistry between them continues to be totally insane and sizzling.

Man in Love will provide you with a ticket and lead you on a nice journey into that sweet and sexy world, Laurelin Paige has created. With a hot, swoon-worthy hero, a sexy, strong heroine and powerful, scheming parents it guarantees a nice and relaxing read.

****About the Author****

With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. 

When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Killing Eve or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. 

She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
