Eva Simone’s debut novel, Intrigued & Enchanted was a beautiful, sweet and hot romance. Brandon and Lily were beautiful together. We were introduced to Jess, Lily’s best friend and Simon, Brandon’s best friend. We waited to read their story; it’s here now and it does not disappoint.
Jess and Simon don’t do relationships. Jess had a very ugly experience from her past and she has decided that she will never let any man get close to her. Simon didn’t want to love or give his heart to a woman because of an incident from the past.
But, OH MY GOD!! The chemistry between these two sizzles off the pages; you can feel it. I got hot and flustered, often. They are passionate and explosive. Simon goes all in and falls hard; he fights hard and shows his unconditional love time and time again. Jess’ insecurities get in the way and she ends up making a few bad decisions. Jess deals with emotions by pushing away or running away. She doesn’t open up; she feels ashamed.
I felt strongly about this story, it pulled at my heart and at times I felt it being ripped off my chest. I was very emotional. There are moments of angst, but hang in there. Eva Simone made these characters and their story so very real, that I don’t want to let them go.
Do I recommend it? YES! YES! YES! A hundred times YES!
This story will make you cry, laugh and at times you will have a goofy smile on your face. You will definitely swoon and fall in love with Simon Montavani and his Italian words.
Simone is a stay at home mother of two, wife to a wonderful hubby,
and certified book addict! She studied English at university, gaining
an honours degree in literature and linguistics. She rekindled her
love affair with reading 4 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.
At least 300 books later, with a story on the back burner she decided
it was time to put her education to good use and write her first
novel. Intrigued and Enchanted is the first book in The Enchanted
Series and first released on May 5th 2014 to great reviews. Eva has
been overwhelmed by the love and support that she has received from
bloggers and her readers. Book 2 in the series, Enchanted and
Desired, is due to release September 30th. With a third book planned
in the series, Eva decided it was time to give Intrigued and
Enchanted a revamp, and release on paperback.
