Publisher's Summary

"This woman possessed some kind of magic over me that I couldn’t understand, but I never wanted to end.”

Billionaire CEO Alexander Wolfe has spent years putting in 120-hour weeks in the office and adding zeroes to his net worth. But lately, work has left him feeling burnt-out and uninspired. Then, he is given the chance to go head-to-head with a legendary corporate raider and the man he’d idolized his entire career. He seizes the opportunity, immediately jumping on a plane for Barbados to close the deal in person. If he’s successful, it’ll be the biggest win of his career. He had no way of knowing that meeting a mesmerizing beauty would have the power to derail everything...

“Spending time with this man was easy but I had to force myself to remember that he was also actively trying to ruin my life. This would be a lot easier if he wasn’t so charming.”

Calypso Sterling has no time for men who value her beauty over her intellect. Instead, she focuses all her energy on her studies and career aspirations. But, when her home - and a closely guarded family secret - is threatened, she’s ready to defend all she holds dear. She had no way of knowing a handsome stranger had the power to take away everything she’d ever loved...

This stand-alone, workplace enemies-to-lovers romance features characters from Everything’s Better with Kimberly and is full of alphas and steam and has no cheating. This is the novelized, extended version of the previously published novella of the same name.

Lovely "beach read" tackling heavier issues

Alexander Wolfe has been staying for a few weeks incognito at The Sterling, a luxury resort in Barbados. He's been trying to buy it for some time but the owner won't budge. While there as Mr. Underhill, he meets a beautiful and fascinating woman and is completely smitten. Much to his surprise, when he finally has a meeting with the owner, he finds out that she is his daughter. And she proceeds to hand his ass to him on platter, annihilating him in what he hoped would be a fruitful meeting. 

He's never felt this way before and is willing to forego the buy to pursue a relationship with her. There seems to be very strong reason why The Sterlings won't part the resort (one he can't seem to find out), but he respects her wishes and backs down completely. As for his partner, not so much, and the couple's future together is put injeopardcy.

This is a beautiful "island romance" and I fell in love with Calypso and Alex. The author also deals with some heavy subjects here: losing a spouse/parent to early onset Alzheimer's, and also how women of color are seen as "exotic", being either turned into sex objects or not being taken seriously at all. I really liked how the author dealt with these issues in the book. I'll definitely be reading more from her.

Narration: this is one of the @audioincolor audiobooks and I'm so happy it introduced me to a new wonderful narrator, Mari, who voices the feisty Calypso. Her partner is Jacob Morgan, who y'all know I'm basically a card-carrying stan for (joking..., just a regular SANE, unhinged fan lol). They both killed it with all the accents and kid voices, bringing the island to us. Highly recommend!

BTW: I loved the 25-year jump in the epilogue and the Spotify playlist at the end of the book. I suggest you download that first and read/listen to the book with an added soundtrack.

Possible Triggers: spouse/parent with Alzheimer's, women of color portrayed as "exotic"

5 stars all around

This book made someone thsts not usually a fan of this genre a huge fan. There really is nothing bad I can say about this book. It has love, loss, comedy, deep story lines for each character and so much more. I laughed, I cried, I was happy with the ending but I'm so ready for more!

What an Absolute Treasure!!!

This story was sooooo good to me I savored the listen like I was eating my favorite ice-cream. Lucy's incredible writing of their POV'S had my head swimming. Alex so loved every inch of Calypso and it was what he never thought it could happen to him. As soon as I read who the narrators were, I hit purchase. Mari and Jacob Morgan are sexy Prefection. Great story coupled with great narration is a slam dunk!😍 The ways/times he called her godess made my heart quicken. This is my first book with Ms Eden and it won't be my last. I salute you 👏🏽 Ms Eden!

Fascinating Read!

This is the first book I read by this author and as a Barbadian the similarities are very accurate. Such a sweet and hot story and a thoroughly enjoyable read! Only drawback was the inaccurate accents. Sounded more Trinidadian than Bajan.

I love this novel with well thought out characters.

I started listening to this novel and couldn’t stop listening until I had finished it. I loved the characters especially Alex and calypso‘s mother. This novel has Romance, steamy sex, comic moments and tragic moments. I love that story spans over 25 years. I have been to the island of Barbados several times and the description brings back fond memories of my time on the island, in conclusion this is a well written novel and lovers of romance will most certainly enjoy it as much as I did.
