Bend her like Beckham!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌎
Character development: 😟😣🙃🙂🥰
The heroine: Jacinta – She got pregnant by Rylee’s ex fiancé when he was cheating on Rylee. He was abusive and an all around bad guy. While pregnant she ran and tried to stay hidden from him and his wealthy family. During her time away, she married August who also left town because he didn’t think he deserved Rylee. However, when he returned to town for a funeral, he got back together with Rylee.
The Hero(es): Beckham Harley – Brother to Rylee and her twin sister Rhianna. Beckham took over running their father’s company years ago and has increased its worth ever since. Beckham lost the love of his life, Paige in the last book. He had been best friends with her since they were young. Paige was August’s half-sister. August is Rylee’s husband.
The Story: Jacinta has a young son and is working as a secretary to Beckham. He is a hard task master but soon realizes that Jacinta is good at her job and dedicated. Beckham is extremely attracted to Jacinta, and her to him but neither of them want to cross that line since he is her boss. Plus he is hard to work for and Jacinta is a great worker.
When Beckham and Jacinda have to go away together to a swanky resort for business, the book gets a bit steamy. Though I must say this book seemed a bit rushed to me and could have had a lot more detail. It is less than 200 pages, so I didn’t expect a deeply intricate storyline.
However, I thought there would be a bit more angst about Beckham’s love for Paige when he started to have feelings for Jacinta. He was definitely grieving before he got to know Jacinta, but he seemed to move on as soon as he got intimate with Jacinta. So I will give this one 4 stars instead of 5.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
