"Secrets of a Billionaire's Mistress" [One Night With Consequences Series] by Sharon Kendrick

Author's Book Description : Waitress...

Neither tall, willowy nor sophisticated, waitress Darcy Denton knew she wasn't Renzo Sabatini's usual type. But enthralled by the powerful magnate, unworldly Darcy became addicted to their passionate nights together.

Mistress...

Ensconced in Renzo's secluded Tuscan villa, Darcy glimpses Renzo's troubled past and desolate soul. She should end it before she gets in too deep, but then she discovers she's pregnant!

Wife?

Harboring her own childhood secrets, Darcy dare not tell Renzo, but as the mother of his child it's only a matter of time—nine months, to be exact—before he claims what's his...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Though from the outside-looking-in Renzo and Darcy look like an odd pairing. And with their backgrounds I would tend to agree. Yet, their connection is intense and undeniable. Though will their connection be enough to overcome everything from their pasts, especially when someone from Darcy’s own past threatens to destroy everything that she holds dear...

Okay, I had a hard time feeling that Darcy and Renzo should be together. I mean, I appreciated their obvious attraction/connection yet they have SO much baggage that it makes it hard for either of them to grow as characters and let their emotions into the mix. So, while their lustful scenes held my attention (as there are plenty!), I had a difficult time feeling that their relationship could be more than what was shown (mostly sex scenes). Yet, what hooked me (surprising enough) was Darcy and Renzo as individual characters as their personal story arcs (I feel) are well done.

Nevertheless, even though I appreciated this novel for its unique quirks, I feel I can only recommend it to those romance novel lovers who are already fans of Ms. Kendrick and her writing style, like I am.

She wasn't budging an inch but he respected her for that, too. If it had been anyone else he wouldn't have stayed or persisted or cared. But he was fighting for something here. Something he'd never really thought about in concrete terms before.
His future. ~ within Chapter 11
