About the book
Title: My Beautiful Disaster
Author: J.D. Hughes
Daniel Dukes, millionaire extraordinaire has it all. A thriving business, good looks, power, money and women who’ll drop their drawers at the click of his skilled fingers. Just how he likes it. Everything changes one day when a stipulation in his deceased Uncle’s will, scuppers his visionary plans. The only way to get what’s rightfully his, is to marry. Who? It doesn’t matter, because the enigmatic bachelor will stop at nothing and play dirty to get what is his.
Sophia Lewis had nothing until she started working directly for Daniel at Dukes Industries. Having grown up in care, she’s tough, has an answer for everything and knows how to handle all varieties of men. For two years, Sophia has attended to her overbearing boss’ every whim. Gone above and beyond the call of duty.
When an indecent proposal presents itself, boundaries are pushed and limits are tested. Can Daniel and Sophia remain professional to fool the dead Uncle’s Lawyers? As lines become blurred and tempers become frayed, can two strong willed souls be the key to unlock each other’s hidden secrets? Or will the high price of the deal come at a devastating cost to them both?
*Warning* Mature themes and one hell of a cliff hanger!
I was pulled into the story right from the beginning and I loved how you are introduced to the characters at work and you get to see their working relationship. Even though Daniel was her boss they had the kind of relationship where Sophia would stand up for herself and speak her mind. Then when Daniel has to marry and they enter into a 'relationship' this is when the fun begins and they spark off each other brilliantly.
Both Daniel and Sophia find it hard to trust so I loved the fireworks that went off when they were thrown together. They are complex characters that have their flaws and because of this they did feel more real and believable. Sophia had a horrendous time growing up and this makes her character all the more compelling.
The pace of the book is pretty perfect and I found myself near the end in no time at all, I really couldn't wait to see how everything would turn out. If you want to curl up and forget all about your surroundings this book is perfect. I became well and truly drawn into Sophia and Daniel's intense and seductive world.
With steamy, sizzling chemistry these characters make this story a very passionate and addictive read. I will definitely be making the time to read the conclusion to this story as it ended on a brilliant cliffhanger!
My Beautiful Disaster has a great mix of romance and drama that made this book so difficult to put down!
