I received Last Man She’d Love by Summerita Rhayne as a review copy from the author. I am very thankful to her for the book.
When best laid plans fall apart…
Lyna is all set to marry a movie mogul, when she finds his pregnant ex at her office, begging her to break the engagement and keep her name out of it. Forced to take her flirtatious boss Guy’s help, she sets about to break the engagement. But now she’s pulled into deeper involvement with Guy.
One trouble leads to another!
She agrees to visit his palatial country house, posing as his fiancée and is drawn into the family and their antics. Sorting out who’s who takes time. A stringent grandfather, an ambitious mother, a frustrated half brother are only the beginning!
Attraction makes things complicated…
Propinquity with someone as charming and attractive as Guy doesn’t help. But Guy himself is as much of a puzzle as ever. Is he the playboy she thinks him or is there someone else beneath the sardonic pose? Will she ever find out?
Will she break her heart in the process?
Lyna, the company Director of Gayatri Productions, is engaged to be married to Brijesh Talwar, a movie mogul. Her father is half British- half Indian who married her Punjabi mother, divorced her and is now married to the glamorous daughter of an established business family. Brijesh Talwar knows all this and has invested in Lyna. For them it would be a marriage with benefits, more like a business partnership, a win-win situation. She is not attracted to him, he would get his father’s wealth and she would get a leap professionally.
Jashith Gayatri Pratap Singh, Guy, is her boss. Though she had been working with the company for the last five years, Guy had joined the company only three years ago. Guy is progressive, not very creative and liked the administrative side more. With him she never knew where she was.
One day when she is in a meeting with Guy, a girl, Meghna, comes to meet her and tells her that she is pregnant with Brijesh’s child. So she decides that she would break up her engagement with Brijesh, because if he stays engaged to her, he is bound to refuse Meghna but if he is not engaged to her, maybe the baby would get a family.
So she plans it with Guy, who is not the marrying kind, to make Brijesh jealous and break the engagement, but what happens next is that Guy and Lyna find themselves in an engagement of convenience and sucked into the family drama of both their families.
The story has a simple plot and the flow is good.
The characters have been developed well. Lyna is as cold as they come, strong, independent and sharp tongued. Guy, is a private person but flirtatious. Both of them have a sense of humour that kept me smiling off and on. Even the secondary characters have important roles in the story. The descriptions are nice and detailed.
I loved the story and would recommend it to all romance lovers.
