(W)REC(K) A BOOK: The Art of Forgiving a Greek Billionaire

Once upon a time, there was an ordinary girl who grew up listening to bedtime stories where there were no knights in shining armor or Prince Charming. Instead, it had Greek billionaires and this little girl dreamt she'd one day have Her Own Greek Billionaire to live happily ever after with.

When this little girl grew up, she discovered a painful lesson. Not all wishes are meant to come true, not all broken hearts may be repaired, and not all Greek billionaires love forever.

Not even hers.

This is my story.
I mean your story.
I mean, Mairi Tanner's story.

The author gifted this to me so here's my intake on the book.

WHOA there are some major game-changers in this book!

Of all the books in the Greek Billionaire series, this was the hardest to swallow. Mairi and Damen's relationship was a shredded disaster in the last book, and this one picks the story up a few months after the big incident. Damen is desperate to get her back, and Mairi sees the humility that he faces with his battle against the rest of the world, but she still can't forgive him for the way he treated her. He more than shattered her heart on the cold floor of his home- he kicked her out of his life in the most humiliating way for her. She just isn't ready to so easily forgive him. How can she, when she doesn't even know what she feels for him anymore?

Drake from Tee's other series was brought into this to help Mairi survive her relationship with Damen, and it's their sexual play between each other that completely stabbed me in the heart. T_T Up until this point, all of Marian's heroines that I've read have been fools in love who couldn't imagine being with another guy, let alone think it. For Mairi to do anything more than kiss another guy was weird for me, but not for the reasons you think. I was so pissed at Damen for what he did, but when I read Mairi and Drake's scene, it didn't feel justified- it just felt sad. T_T I'm pretty sure it has to do with the fact that reality came into this series, what with the 'other person' or the possibility of actually being with more than one person. I'm not saying that's completely unheard of, it's just been absent from Tee's stories; a lot of her girls only ever were with their main interest.

The point is, Tee's stories were a fantasy escape from reality for me, but since a cold lesson from realiy was brought in, it's both shaken me and made things interesting. The ending just about made me cry my eyes out. It was pretty dramatic and the fact that she's only with him out of pity just made the series a lot more HARDER TO WAIT FOR.

I enjoyed this series so much, but this was a little short for me, especially when compared to her other series like The Moretti Werewolf Series (see how I shamelessly advertized that in there?) but otherwise it was an entertaining story. I'd recommend this author to my friends because her stories are just that squeal worthy for other hopeless romantics like me. She has a flare for leaving her audience with a flavor of 'anime' and 'korean drama' in their mouths after devouring her books- or is that just me? The drama is real in a all-or-nothing way, the sexual tensions between characters are great. I like her flow of writing, and her characters never irritate me (much *cough*-*Damen*-*cough*).

So far she's written a lot of varying genres and series and I highly recommend you check them out. One will catch your fancy. :)

Happy Reading =^_^=
