Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle comes a delicious saga of wealth, luxury, and scandal - and the wicked secrets of success behind an envied family dynasty.

The Riviera means indulgence - if you’ve got money. For Sadie Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck student, the Riviera means dingy hostels and back streets. When a wrong turn puts her in jeopardy, the last thing she expects is to be saved by the most handsome stranger she’s ever locked eyes with. When she later wakes up in a luxury suite with a Mediterranean view, she’s in the tender care of her rescuer: Olivier Dumont, France’s most eligible bachelor, billionaire hotelier, and heir to the Dumont fashion fortune.

Olivier also owns his reputation for scandal. But Sadie is unlike any woman he’s ever met. Her humble persona and wild innocence promise real passion. He’s promising Sadie something too: anything she wants. From Bordeaux to Cannes to Paris, Sadie’s past in America is swept away and replaced with a fantasy too good to be true.

Pulled into Olivier’s orbit of wealth, glamour, and excess, Sadie discovers that the Dumont dynasty comes with a legacy of wicked secrets. And Olivier’s secrets may be the most damning of all…

Fire on fire

This book was incredible in the physical read through, but the audiobook is a whole extra level. The narration, particularly of Olivier, is absolutely delightful. HIGHLY recommend.

I loved both narrators!

I was hooked from the very beginning of this beautiful, romantic story. Sadie is backpacking across Europe with her boyfriend when an unexpected breakup occurs. She is a strong, brave female that continues on her adventure alone. A series of unfortunate events for Olivier leads him into Sadie’s path at just the right time. Olivier and Sadie had an attraction that was instant and their love story flowed with ease. The romance of Sadie and Olivier, the side characters you love and hate, and the air of mystery untwined into the story makes it hard to stop reading. I loved the happily ever after.
This is my first from both narrators and I loved them. They switched character dialogue with ease and always held my attention. I loved John Lane’s French accent and I didn’t cringe when he spoke with a feminine voice. Summer Morton portrayed Sadie perfectly.

Well put together

Good book.
Not to be a spoiler, but I was hoping the old man would fake his own death in order to out his brother's blackmail. Ending left enough for at least one sequel.

I almost Shattered my phone!!

I love love and love at first sight is the best. Olivier knew immediately that he loved Sadie. He knew immediately that he had to have her.
I didn't love how he could not see the forest for the trees. I don't like how he let himself be blackmailed over stupidity. I thought that by the end of the book he would come to his senses. I was so upset I wanted to throw my phone across the room! (I'm listening on my phone). Olivier made me so upset giving away his legacy like that!! Then he left his sister. I can not!!! So clearly any book that could evoke that much emotion is worth the read. Maybe Seraphine saves the company? I'm not sure I want to put myself through the emotion of reading the next book. I may not have a phone left. I wonder if the oldest brother was blackmailed too? What if all of the shares were actually left to Renault? Hmmm🤔 I have so may questions. I may have to bite the bullet.
