Wild Island Love by Melissa Foster
Publication August 2, 2023
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Taken from Goodreads: Sparks fly between a PR rep and an A-list actor who want nothing to do with each other.
Leni Steele might be looking for love, but she’s definitely not looking to be someone’s fake date. Especially not one of the most infuriatingly handsome and annoyingly cocky actors on the planet, Duncan Raz. But when the owner of the PR firm for which she works forces her to walk the red carpet on his arm, she has no choice. Neither wants to be there, much less with each other. They’re like oil and water, and he gets on her last nerve. But after a few tequila shots, that’s not all he gets on. What was supposed to be one date turns into a media frenzy they can’t afford to ignore, and Leni has no other option than to continue the ruse. All the fake kisses furtive glances, and seductive touches eventually start to feel very real. But Raz didn’t earn his A-list-actor status for nothing. Is he just doing what he does best? Playing a role? Or is Leni the leading lady in Raz’s real-life love story?
My Thoughts: I have missed Silver Island and all my friends from there. I felt like I was coming home. Leni and Duncan are so freaking fun! They are sexy, I mean there was steam coming off the page as I read some of their scenes. Yet, sexy scenes or not, there was no doubt that they belonged together.
I had some scares while reading that the story would not go the way I wanted it to, but the story went exactly how it was supposed to go. The characters followed their hearts although sometimes it took them a little bit to figure out what their heart was telling them and ended up having the perfect relationship for them.
There were so many characters that I wanted to catch up with and Melissa Foster included them all. I loved that as each character came back into the story, it was told on how they were related to the other characters. Everyone is connected in the Love in Bloom series, but each book is its own complete story.
Go get this book. I could not put it down.
