BOOK REVIEW- BIDDING ON LOVE by Joanne Dannon
When love complicates a fling.
Lily Taylor is launching her career as a jazz singer through a celebrity auction at a gala event. The problem is, no one is bidding except Diego Sanchez, the sexy Argentinian she had a one- night stand with one month ago.
She’s been raising her twin brothers for the past nine years after their parents were tragically killed. Now that they’re adults, Lily’s determined to be independent and carve out a new life for herself. The last thing she wants is to settle down.
Diego Sanchez has successfully launched a brand of hip wine bars across Melbourne. With his career goals met, he’s looking for a woman who shares his values on family, home, and culture. Not only is Lily not interested, but she doesn’t meet his preconceived notions of a “perfect wife”.
A burning attraction between them, Lily and Diego agree on an affair but the clincher is, it has an end-date. But when love complicates their fling, are they willing to make changes or will they each hold steadfast to their entrenched beliefs and goals? AMAZON 3 STARS
Nope, this book didn't do it for me. It was just okay. It had potential but the main characters just didn't do it for me. Their conversations just seemed so shallow. So many times we could see Lily doing most of the talking and interaction and Diego being kind of blank. He either shrugged a lot off or was kind of superficial. Oh he was totally different when it came to the sex part; then he was outgoing and alive. But at other times he just felt so flat.
I do have to give Diego credit because he was often doing things to help others. And Lily was the same way because she helped raise her twin brothers pretty much single handed.
There will be a H.E.A. with a happy Epilogue but by that time it just didn't feel like enough.
I received a free copy of this book and this is my honest opinion of it.
