I can be your dream girl…for a price…
Ever heard of Only Fans? It’s not my ideal job, but it pays the bills.
It’s even made me somewhat of a celebrity. My subscribers love my provocative shots, and I’m oh-so-good at teasing them.
Then he shows up in my small town and complicates everything.
See, Mr. Green-Eyed Gazillionaire is so far out of my league it’s ridiculous. We’re polar opposites.
That doesn’t change the fact that even though I’m a fantasy to most men, I only want to be his reality.
But nothing real can ever happen between us. Logically, I know that.
Too bad logic and I have never had anything but a passing acquaintance.
Because now, if I’m not careful, I’m afraid this sexy billionaire will smash my poor, pathetic heart into oblivion…
A delicious hot billionaire romance featuring two polar opposites adrift on a resort island with a small-town atmosphere, right of the coast of North Carolina.
This is a steamy contemporary romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhanger, and no cheating.
Adrift is the second book in Isabel Jolie’s Haven Island series. The first book introduced us to Tate and Luna, this one is about Tate’s childhood friend Gabe, and Luna’s friend Poppy. You can definitely read and enjoy Adrift as a standalone.
We meet Gabe in his New York office and see that there is a potential insider trading scandal brewing. Gabe may not be the most likeable protagonist at the beginning of the book. He is arrogant and possibly not the best judge of people. But when his mum asks him to go to Haven Island and talk to his childhood friend Tate whom he hasn’t seen for ten years, Gabe is happy to oblige. He is sure that the rift between Tate and his brother must be the fault of Tate and he just needsto talk a bit of sense into him (if you’ve read the first book in the series, you know what it’s all about).
When Gabe meets Poppy, he is attracted to her voluptious curvy figure and the fact that she has an internet subscription business where clients get access to photos. Poppy has found herself doing this activity during the pandemic when money was tight, and although she has always set strict limits, naturally, a lot of people see her in a certain light She is dreaming of opening a restaurant or a bar, and, Gabe, despite all his drawbacks sees that she is special, although she is lacking experience and higher self-esteem.
Both characters go through a huge amount of development and growth in the book, Poppy learning to really believe in her self. You can see how her past experiences shaped her view of herself, and how much hard work and conscious effort it took her to really accept herself. Gabe also had to realise a lot of things on his way to becoming kinder and more deserving of Poppy’s love.
Lovely romance with interesting characters- great addition to the series. Looking forward to the next book!
