What they say:
Irena and Sacha come from two very different worlds.
An heiress to a fortune, Ren’s home-from-home is the Ritz, while the handsome and brooding Sacha has grown up in Paris’s less salubrious suburbs. So when an accident brings them together, romance seems an unlikely outcome.
When Ren’s society engagement reaches a very public end, Irena’s over-protective grandmother wants her home in London. Ren needs an excuse to stay in Paris, and so after some persuasion, Sacha agrees to pose as her new boyfriend. But only for the twenty-one days Ren’s grandmother has allowed her to nurse her broken heart before heading home to face the music.
Over the course of three weeks, Ren realises the world outside her exclusive bubble is more beautiful than she could have imagined. While Sacha reluctantly begins to see the goodness of the woman behind the wealth. When their time is up, will Ren want to return to her gilded cage, and will Sacha be able to let go of the woman he’s been ‘pretending’ to fall in love with…
Let Leonie Mack whisk you off the City of Lights for a tale of love against the odds, and of following your dreams. Perfect for fans of Mandy Baggot, Jo Thomas and Sarah Morgan.
I know, I know- it hasn’t been long since my last gush about the beautiful storytelling of Leonie Mack, but, well you’re getting it anyway!! Sighs dreamily – I loved this book so much!
Here we meet Ren, who is a part of a world that is very far away from most people’s-that of a socialite heiress. I was straight into the lavish lifestyle which was perfect as when you meet Sacha, a man that I couldn’t tear my eyes away from (if you know what I mean!), you soon see the polar differences in the simple and pure versus the extravagant and sometimes slightly vacuous.
The premise of this book was perfect- who doesn’t like a fake relationship? Add to this the time limit on their coupling, the beauty of the landscape – Paris from every angle- and of course the perfection of their feelings for each other … let’s just say you have to get onto this, another Leonie Mack stunner!
Thanks so much to the publisher and netgalley for the book in return for an honest review.
