Entertainingly Charming, Seductive, Emotional and Steamy Romance
Cherishing the Goddess by Lucy Eden is a charming, seductive, and fabulous romance read for the summer.
Alexander (Alex) Wolfe is handsome, successful and a billionaire CEO looking for his next win. When an opportunity arises for the biggest acquisition of his career, he travels to Barbados to go head-to-head with a corporate raider and close the deal in person. He’s absolutely prepared for everything… or so he thought.
Calypso (Callie) Sterling is beautiful, alluring and intelligent. She’s a force to be reckoned with and she’s come home to defend everything and everyone she loves. But when she meets Alexander, she can’t help being drawn to him. Callie knows the danger in falling for a man like Alexander, but can she resist him?
Alex surely never prepared to fall for a woman like Callie, but he’s absolutely fascinated by her. She may say no to him, but he’s incredibly persistent and will stop at nothing to get what he wants and desires.
I’ve never read anything by this author before, but while I wasn’t going crazy over the story, I thought it was surprisingly really entertaining. I really liked the writing style and thought Eden does wonderfully in luring me in and getting me hooked right from the start. The plot is nicely paced and engaging enough to keep me interested until the end. I liked the characters and thought they were charming in their own ways. The chemistry between Alexander and Callie had me swooning and their sexy moments are absolutely steamy. I thought they were amazing together and I enjoyed their playful bantering. There are a few bumps in their relationship, some conflict, tension, and family drama that definitely challenged Alex and Callie so that was really interesting to read about. I was happy with the ending and overall this story was a lovely read.
This book is a quick, fun, and romantic read. I liked that it was hilarious, sweet, emotional, and sexy. Definitely perfect for romance fans!
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher and Inkslinger Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Lucy Eden is the nom de plume of a romance obsessed author who writes the kind of romance she loves to read. She’s a sucker for alphas with a soft gooey center, over the top romantic gestures, strong & smart MCs, humor, love at first sight (or pretty damn close), happily ever afters & of course, steamy love scenes.
When Lucy isn’t writing, she’s busy reading—or listening to—every book she can get her hands on— romance or otherwise.
She lives in New York with her husband, two children, a turtle & a Yorkshire Terrier.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. Hope you all have a wonderday day and fun weekend!
