MY REVIEW

Reece Carras is a very powerful man. Aside from being sweet, sexy and charismatic, his family is Hollywood royalty and they own the most successful studio in the biz. He’s fallen in love with a story about a young girl struggling with her illegal status in America - a story written by the very beautiful and voluptuous Lucia Vega. Their first meeting is heavy with their mutual attraction but they both vow to themselves to keep it strictly business. This promise was an easy one to break. Reece is willing to do whatever it takes to make this book into a movie and Lucia is determined to keep control over the script and make the movie authentic.

Lucia was an easy character to relate to. She was burdened by her secrets and her life wasn’t one to be envied. She suffered for things that were beyond her control and her pain leaked from these pages. Reece was an absolute sweetheart. Seriously, he was a man after my own heart. He was aware of the issues that plagued his country and was a huge activist for immigration. He was simply amazing. Allen really knows how to create perfect book boyfriends.

There’s nothing I like more than a book that tackles real issues with realistic characters. Even if the problems with immigration don’t touch your life personally, I find that everyone has an opinion about it. After working in immigration for years, I could talk and debate about this topic until I ran out of breath. I won’t do that now, but know that this issue is one that touches me deeply. And I have the utmost sympathy for anyone who is or has dealt with the problems touched on in this story.
