Photographer Carlie Bowers will be staying on Zakynthos this summer to photograph luxury villas owned by her friend's in-laws. She could definitely use a vacation too, but she doesn't like the idea of being chaperoned around the island by Alex Marinos. She'd already met the handsome bachelor, and they'd parted on a sour note, thanks to his forward manner. Any woman would be drawn to his dark Greek looks and blatant virility, but she had no interest in becoming one of his mistresses. She was ready to find the right man and settle down, so Alex had better keep his hands to himself! Alex Marinos is content with his carefree, bachelor lifestyle and ignores his family's insistence that he settle down with a wife. When he has to play host to his sister-in-law's best friend, he's forced to be the perfect gentleman--and keep his hands off her. Something that goes against his nature where beautiful women are concerned.
Take a handsome Greek man, add an attractive, young American woman, a previous, unacknowledged spark between the two, a romantic island setting and you have the recipe for a charming little romance, at least that is what happens in Celia Jade’s newest book. The Greek Bachelor is very much a relationship story, there are no mysteries, monsters or murders involved to add spice to the story, not that any additional spice is needed for this particular book. The spice comes from the interaction between the two main characters, Carlie and Alex, and they tend to generate quite a bit of heat between the two of them without any extraneous effort.
For a short book, Ms. Jade does an exceptional job of describing the Greek isle and its inhabitants in such great detail if I was planning an imminent vacation, this might be the place for me. She is equally faithful in her attention to detail when it comes to her main characters and their interactions with each other. I loved the scenes between Carlie and Alex, their initial struggles to stay apart from each other and their ultimate struggles to come together. The Greek Bachelor is a very well-written and classic romance, especially in a world where there are sometimes too many genres to choose from. I believe anyone who reads it will not be disappointed
