As a prince, my life is already complicated. I don’t need a relationship making things even more difficult for me.
But there’s something different about Elle. I should know better, but now it’s too late. I find I’m willing to follow her to the ends of the earth, and I’m not sure what’s come over me. I should have stopped myself while I still could.
She’s revealed herself—exposed her darkest secrets—and even those are not enough to push me away. I know too much about her now. And something about her makes me crave more.
She’s under my skin. And I won’t rest until she’s mine.
The story continues and where we left off in the first installment, Leo and Elle sort of starting to come together, well, the replacement doctor walks in 2 days early and ruins the moment. Of course, that’s not all he ruins since he turns out to be a very well bred doctor who was up for a nobel prize – and he knows all about Elle’s past – something that we don’t quite know yet.
He’s set on making everyone as uncomfortable as possible, yet he doesn’t quite realize who Leo is yet and that adds to some of the humor.
The path of this next story is one where we see Elle leave the clinic and go home, but to what – she has no idea since she’s got nothing really good going for her because of her past (which we learn in this book). Then we see Prince Andrew appear because Leo’s valet Mattias called the king, and Andrew has come to clean things up. Well, we all know how much of a ‘stiff’ Andrew is, so it’s not surprising at all that the story takes yet another poor turn.
Once Elle is back at home in LA, she finds that Leo has managed to beat her to her home and has had it cleaned and maintained. That scores brownie points which of course leads to them finally allowing themselves to discover what’s between them, yet you know that all good things have to come to an end, and well, this one comes with a harsh blow to Elle.
Cliff hanger of course because we know that there has to be a reason to keep reading these novellas – and in this instance, it’s with a secret being kept and a swift departure. So, on that note, onto the next.
