Tara's 4**** Bare Naked Stars Review
"The harsh reality of his words jolted her focus back to the conversation. Her gaze flicked up to meet Clive’s. She hoped he did not see what his presence had been doing to her. A slight glint in his eyes and a faint gotcha smile showed he knew her thoughts exactly."
Eva has been hurt by love too many times. With a family tragedy, and broken heart, Eva takes on a new job. Leaving her one true love, cooking, behind, Eva ventures into the world of design, where business isn't what it seems.
When Clive has been portrayed as a player, yet again, he decides to dive into his career. When rumours and secrets threaten his company, Clive decides to terminate a life long relationship with a business contact, Eva's family. But when Clive sees Eva, even after all those years, one thing is certain, he will stop at nothing to keep her in his life, and safe from the rumours and dangers threatening to destroy their lives.
"She bit into her lower lip. He liked that, because the fact that you’re looking at me that way makes me want you too."
I really liked this book. Filled with romance, steamy sex and suspense, Camellia thought of everything! The characters all flowed really well with each other and so did the story line. Camellia wrote with confidence, and fluidity. She was able to take the story from past to present without skipping a beat! I look forward to more books from Camellia!
"There was no way he would let her go without making her explain every single detail about what she’d meant by creepy guy and when she did explain it all, he’d think she was totally out of her mind, conjuring up false notions about a simple onlooker."
