The Riviera means indulgence—if you’ve got money. For Sadie Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck student, the Riviera means dingy hostels and back streets. When a wrong turn puts her in jeopardy, the last thing she expects is to be saved by the most handsome stranger she’s ever locked eyes with. When she later wakes up in a luxury suite with a Mediterranean view, she’s in the tender care of her rescuer: Olivier Dumont, France’s most eligible bachelor, billionaire hotelier, and heir to the Dumont fashion fortune.
Olivier also owns his reputation for scandal. But Sadie is unlike any woman he’s ever met. Her humble persona and wild innocence promise real passion. He’s promising Sadie something too: anything she wants. From Bordeaux to Cannes to Paris, Sadie’s past in America is swept away and replaced with a fantasy too good to be true.
Pulled into Olivier’s orbit of wealth, glamour, and excess, Sadie discovers that the Dumont dynasty comes with a legacy of wicked secrets. And Olivier’s secrets may be the most damning of all…

From The Book
“I’m going in,” he tells me. “You’re free to join me. I highly advise a dip in the Mediterranean. The sea salt here is good for your soul.”
I’ll tell you what else is good for the soul: watching Oliver Dumont take off his clothes, that’s what. The sound as he undoes his zipper is so loud if seems to bounce off the waves.

Not my first review by author and it’s always a good surprise and a big variety when it come from Karina Halle, the blurb got me very interested in this not to mention the beautiful cover itself!
Well this was an unexpected brought out feelings type of book! Was apparently not ready for all the world-win i guess. I want to talk about the characters first: Oliver is a 30 year old FILTHY RICH business man, who owns lot’s of properties along with hotel-chain. His family comes from big money as well, so either way he would always be taken care of financially. Now, Sadie is a college student that went on an adventure only to end up alone…literally and figuratively speaking. She is backpacking and very broke, but getting by, she is not going to let a set-back hold her back from exploring. Until that one night she took a wrong turn and luckily for her Oliver the knight-in-shining-armor was there to save her. It all kind of went like a roller coaster from then on, for both of them.
I really loved the idea of this story, the romance portion was VERY SWOON WORTHY, not just Oliver but the surroundings and all. The author if you’ve never read her is very keen on detail, not too much where it over-powers but enough so it can all play out like a movie scene in your head. Even if you’ve never been to that part of the country, this is a international romance as well. That said, this story is every girls dream to be honest, maybe not the family issue one but the whole being swooped of your feet deal.
Oliver becomes infatuated with Sadie not just for her looks but for her smarts and mouth, he can’t believe she didn’t know who he was when they met. They take a journey and adventure together…but all adventures either continue or have a bad ending…I’m leaving it there….
In this book you will have hardship, romance, SWOON SWOON SWOON, adventure, secrets, lies, hurt & pain and of course HEARTBREAK in many forms…oh let’s not forget DANGER! I rather enjoyed the story and the characters, I am looking forward to learn more about them hopefully in the other books to come in that series!
