I received a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I read the first book in the series last year and liked it, but didn’t love it. This book was definitely a step up from the last one.
The premise is the classic romance trope, marriage of convenience. However, it takes places when the marriage of convenience is nearing its end, which is a cool twist to the trope. I found that twist very refreshing and it offered a unique perspective to the trope. I enjoyed seeing the main characters, Chris and Eden, discover their true feelings for each other.
I also liked that Eden and Chris went on a couple’s retreat at the resort. The couples resort was talked about in the first book, but this book really delved into how it operated and what the program was like. The couple’s retreat was fun to read about and also aided in Chris and Eden’s character development.
I just have to point out that I love that this series has so much Filipino representation. As a Filipino American, I love seeing Filipino culture highlighted.
Lastly, like the first book, I do feel like there were some pacing issues with this one. Some parts seemed to move slower than others.
Overall, this was a great installment to the series and I am looking forward to the next one!
