BACHELOR UNFORGIVING - Brenda Jackson
Harlequin Kimani Romance
REVIEWER: Beverly Jackson | RATING: A
REVIEW: “Handsome as sin” Virgil Bougard needs to revamp his womanizing image before he officially becomes the CEO of his family’s successful financial company. While understanding the practical business reasons for this change, Virgil is livid over the consultant his father has hired for this project. There is no denying that PR Specialist Kara Goshay is the best at what she does but she is also the woman who four years ago broke Virgil’s heart by betraying his trust. Kara has offered an apology but Virgil’s propensity for holding a grudge makes forgiving not an option. What each cannot deny is the sexual tension and awareness which overpowers them whenever they are in the same room. Will Kara and Virgil be able to maintain a professional only relationship or will their hearts succumb to the passion and desires they feel for each other?
Ms. Jackson does an excellent job developing a marvelous second-chance love story featuring a stubborn hero who is willing to deny his happiness rather than accept a heartfelt apology and a hopeful heroine who regrets a prior rash action. As the couple begins to work together, the irresistible desire between them gives way to a love that is natural and transformative. Each of their journeys requires them to examine themselves to determine who they are and what they want out of life. The use of flashbacks, sizzling sexual tension, and scorching love scenes makes for an engaging emotional story.
BACHELOR UNFORGIVING is the fifth book in the Bachelor In Demand series and this time the setting is Charlotte, North Carolina. Though it has been a couple of years since the last book, I appreciated the update/appearance by all of the main characters. Beside the conflict between the hero and the heroine, family dynamics added another level of drama to this story.
BACHELOR UNFORGIVING was an incredibly satisfying tale for me. I recommend to readers who enjoy a multi-layered storyline, rich with succulent details on discovering the hopeful promise of redemptive love.
