    A review in three acts: Heroine: Please, you must help me find my sister whom I have controlled her whole life.Hero: Let's have sexHeroine: I'm a relationship counselor and meaningless sex is the worst thing you can ever do.Hero: Let's have sexHeroine: Look, I know you're a billionaire divorce lawyer for rich and powerful guys. You must hate women.Hero: Let's have sexHeroine: But, but . . . You're going to fire my sister if she doesn't show up for work? It's your fault she ran off with your brother.Hero: Let's have sex.Heroine: You want me to take my sister's place as your assistant? And go to your private island in the Caribbean? Do divorce lawyers always meet their clients on their private islands?Hero: Let's have sex.Act II(view spoiler)[Heroine: Where's the client?Hero: Let's have sex on my sail boat.Heroine: Is that a hurricane coming?Hero: Let's have sex at this abandoned cottage.Heroine: What do you mean I'm a control freak and my sister hates me?Hero: We can't have sex on the beach during a hurricane. Let's have sex inside.Heroine: I'm a charlatan. I know nothing about relationships. I have to stop being a control freak. Let's have sex.Hero: That's my line.Act IIIHero: Let's have sex all the time.Heroine: It ends now because I have violated my own principles. But now I know what love is and therefore I must leave you.Hero: I haven't had sex for two weeks.Heroine: I haven't left my apartment for two weeks because of the paparazzi.Hero: Why didn't you call me on the sex line? I want to marry you.Heroine: What? You hate woman and marriage.Hero: I actually took woman client today and I'm going to help her fight for child support based on the story of your miserable childhood. Now let's have sex and then get married. Heroine: Okay.(hide spoiler)]And that's about as deep as their conversations ever went. Hero was as shallow as puddle. The heroine was neurotic - physician, heal thyself. I think the sister made a great escape.

    I could not put this book down. It really drew me in and kept me on the hook--watching the sizzling interactions between this couple. Not only that--I was drawn in by the well-written dialogue between Lindsay and Alessio. Lindsay and Alessio actually talked most of this book, having very meaningful discussions. Although they were polar opposites when it came to their worldviews and outlooks on relationships, they came to realize that they had the same trust and relationship issues, deep down.Alessio is one of those heroes that seem tailor-made for the shovel to head treatment. But, he wasn't. His arrogance and hard-hearted personality actually hid a man who had been hurt deeply through the actions of his mother against his father. He is a rake, through and through, but he discovers that he has a heart. In the process of trying to break down Lindsay's defenses and beliefs about true love and relationships, be comes to realize that he likes and appreciates who she is. That she is a good woman who has her reasons for why she behaves the way she does. I really appreciated how Miss Morgan presented this couple, and how we see them grow. Lindsay learns to let go and to be less of a control freak. To open her heart to experiences and to love. Even though she does give in to Alessio's seduction, it's on her terms and with her eyes open. She's not whiny or weak. She's a strong woman who's rational and in control of her emotions. She's not a soft touch. But, she comes to realize that desire is something that she can feel, because that's part of who we are as humans, and because she's fallen in love with Alessio. Even though Alessio is hard at first, I could see why Lindsay fell for him. That he was a good guy deep down. He learns that he can give his heart to a woman and feel intimacy with her that is not about sex, but about an emotional connection. And I loved the end, how Alessio does make a gesture and show how he loved Lindsay.I would recommend this book to the Harlequin Presents reader who wants a more modern kind of story that shows a relationship developing between two people who probably shouldn't be attracted to each other and fall in love--because they do have that connection that brings soulmates together. In the end, I did believe that Lindsay and Alessio were two halves of the same heart, helping each other to realize that they don't have to be slaves to their pasts, but that their past shapes them to be people who can love and find freedom to love in their lives.Once again, I've loved and enjoyed one of Sarah Morgan's books. Overall rating: 4.5/5.0 stars.

    The title of this book is deceiving, as Lindsay isn't exactly a virgin. That wasn't stated clearly, but the simple fact that Alessio didn't gasp and react like an idiot after he made love with her the 1st time was a strong clue to the state of her "un-virginity", LOL. I wouldn't say she was Alessio Capelli's captive either, because she chose to go with him by her own choice... Okay, he kind of blackmailed her into it, but she could have said no and the world wouldn't have come to an end.Hmmm, I'm afraid that's all I feel like saying - which was pretty much nothing, LOL - for now. I might come back later to write a review, but I'm not making any promises.

    Really more like 2.5 stars. Nothing too exciting. The characters talk a lot, yes, but nothing too interesting. The ending was quite abrupt and we never get to see when or why the hero comes to the conclusion that yes, after all he loves the heroine and that yes, after all he does believe in marriage when his whole life he believed differently. I also never quite got when the heroine fell in love with the hero other than her sudden epiphany as I didn't feel the chemistry at all between the characters despite it being mentioned several times. The heroine was a total basket case who desperately needed therapy herself instead of counseling other people. Luckily she comes to the realization that she is a total basket case and shouldn't be counseling people in the end. Given her looniness, the hero had the patience of a saint. There was so much contradictory talk about the characters' respective beliefs and values that left me confused- so you don't believe in love and marriage but you do? You don't believe in purely no strings attached sex but you do? It was just too much for my powers of suspension of disbelief. The whole time the heroine preaches that you shouldn't mistake sexual chemistry for love and that sexual chemistry alone should not be the basis for marriage. In the end, it seems this is precisely the mistake that the hero and heroine make for I was never even remotely persuaded that they loved each other- another inconsistency in this book. And he's a divorce lawyer who represents clients from all over the world and has offices in Rome and NY? How does that work? Even if he were admitted to practice in both jurisdictions, I don't see how that could possibly work logistically. Oh, and the synopsis is totally inaccurate and has nothing to do with the story at all! All in all, this one felt contrived and there were too many inconsistencies for me to suspend my disbelief enough to really get into the story. A disappointing read as I know Sarah Morgan can and has done so much better. I guess we can't always nail them all.

    Misleading title once again. Heroine wasn't a virgin.

    This book is totally made of win, and while there are plenty of aspects for me to gush about (like the excellent build up from the get-go with their sizzling chemistry and undeniable sexual tension:D), what I will take with me, in the end, are the conversations. Genuine talk . . . angry talk, sensual talk, happy talk, revealing talk, guilty talk, upset talk, and all kinds of talk. I think it's so easy for characters to give in to lust and that's sort of their gateway to 'love' . . . Sometimes we aren't given much chance to get to know each person and the revelations about their character/history/motivation/desires are exposed swiftly. Readers aren't really shown how they fall in love . . . That's why I love this book. It's so refreshing to see these two characters, who, on the surface, are hopeless opposites of each other, but once stripped of their layers, are really just two individuals who make a perfect pair.They battle and (she)fight the attraction (his weapon: his words; her defense: her actions) existing between them, both having a hard time with emotional ties and the intimacies it necessitates. It's lovely to see each of the characters develop (discuss!) throughout the novel; acknowledging their past, learning more about themselves in the process . . . accepting, trusting, and letting go, and finally making concessions that allowed them to submit to the Power of Love. :DI downloaded this book on my Nook after reading A Night of Scandal, which I looooved. Needless to say, (after recovering from the book-bliss I am in right now) you will find me reading more of Ms. Sarah Morgan's work. ;)

    It was a very good read,Alessio-Lindsay adored them both-these two were the case of "Opposites attract" both had different set of ideologies & values,enjoyed their banters and they had some quiet meaningful banters,i was irritated with Lindsay's over protectiveness but as we get to know the past it is clear that Lindsay brought Ruby up as a mother-i came to understand her worries & fears.I really liked the fact that we got to know the past of Alessio-Lindsay which shaped them as they are today,both realise they have trust issues,in a way both healed & freed each other by the end their deal.I was disappointed cause there was no epilogue:)otherwise i liked and enjoyed the book very muchRecommend it

    Just could not stop reading the book,The sudden swerve of emotions are unremarkably related to each other, forming an intricacy that establishes an intimacy, wherein the couple finally realise that a relationship must consist of love and sex.....But it was the conversations that left their mark...There were all kinds of talk, and personally, there was not a single moment I felt like:"Oh, here they go again".....because, all the talks were essential in building the relationship.While Lindsay showed unlenting love towards her little sister, (which somehow led her into making some hurtful decisions, naturally because of her worry and fear - these decisions made Ruby pull back from her);Alessio appears to be very understanding, and comforts Lindsay, in every possible way.

    What a fun, sexy book! Sarah Morgan knows how to deliver the laughs, the emotion, and the drama in a fast, tight read that kept me turning the pages for more. (Full disclosure: I consider Sarah a friend, but this book was still right up my alley for what I enjoy.)

    Lindsay has spent her entire life caring and raising her baby sister. Now she has disappeared and Lindsay must face the man she had to refuse, her sister's boss. Alessio is a man who believes in sex. He finds that love andded to sex, is definately a much more desirable state.Very nice.

    DNF!OMG!do you know how sometimes a book would have so little dialogue and most of the book will be the inner thoughts of the characters in the plot? will this book is the exact opposite! The whole book was one argument which gets repeated again and again and again until you just want to shoot then and then yourself for keeping on reading!

    I was slow going at first, had a hard time keeping my interest. Skimmed over some pages to the breakup and makeup HEA. Was going to mark it DNF but I hate doing that. The person who made the "Let's have Sex" review hit the nail on the head. lol Very repetitive by the H. And the h was too caught up about her sister. I mean SERIOUSLY... I have 2 sisters and if one didn't show up for her job, I'd be like Sucks to be you about bill time. lol... Glad I only borrowed the ebook from OpenLibrary.Unfortunately I had to wait 2 weeks to borrow it.. Some other sucker had it out and I'm assuming they read like a snail. Either that or they didn't want to finish it either hahaha

    I didn't really enjoy this book, bravery badly written and there isn't much that goes on other than the sexual encounters. I was very disappointed after reading this because it takes me so long to read a book (dyslexic reader here. 👋) Anywho, it took me two weeks to finish. I would have given this read 0/5 if I could.

    Well, she wasn't technically a virgin, but I guess author chose to call her heroine so, cause she was very inexperienced with men, especially with men like main hero. For the better half of the book I thought Lindsay was being a little stupid, like blaming him for the intention of firing her sister for not doing her job and disappearing for a week(?) w/o notice. Try that and see what happens! Well, I'm kidding, don't do that, cause we all know well what will. He wouldn't become a billionaire if he let his staff behave like that. It's bad for business, you know! :)I also wanted to say to Lindsay "Try talking to him! You are thinking all the time and he just can't guess what you think, so obviously sometimes he gets it wrong". But well, I actually started to like it in the end. It was good. Well, except that twist about photos. I guess author was not interested in who or how, except for it being a thing to bring heroes back together, but that's just strange. I'm not buying it: it's a private island "invites only", all staff is highly trained, all guests are celebrities, it's forbidden to take pictures: who was that someone that leaked photos to a press and story? I can't see how resting celebrities would be up for that and I don't see staff doing it. But is must be stuff, otherwise there was a peeping Tom among his guests. Alessio was talking to his PR after finding about that, I think he should be talking to PI instead or his head of security. Also his secretary should know better then not bringing it to his attention, that island was compromised. Love rumors or not. It's bad for business, you know! Noone will want to go there if they can't feel safe. And was there revenge involved? Why this, why now? Somehow I doubt she was the only girl he took to the island. Well, mb she was the first on the second island, but not the first... LoL Ok. I'll stop now :) One sentence brought so many things to think about, but obviously author didn't plan it to be so. Well, may be she did, then it's a great thought. But I would like my answers, thank you very much :)

    Lindsay's love for her sister Ruby at the beginning did not seem realistic but as she unfolded her past it was heart wrenching to know how passion could destroy a family. Ruby was lucky to have her but what Alessio said was right Lindsay's love trapped Ruby. the difference between Cappelli and Lindsay was very nicely portrayed .. how two people act differently in same condition depends all on the way they have grown. The small talks between both that Sarah wrote about relationships was quite en lighting and true, both main leads were correct and towards the end each took other view point as correct, it was good to see The Alessio taking the divorce case of the wife at the same time Lindsay's clients cancelled on her showed hoe Media effects the lives of people.one more good book by Morgan

    I loved this book. Such wonderful endearing main characters. I liked how it was an "opposites attract" theme and how the H would tease the h since they had such opposing views. They both had a unstable childhoods which explained their choice of profession later in life but they both dealt with it in different ways. The attraction between them was strong from the start and I like how their relationship developed gradually into something deeper that neither of them could deny in the end. For such a nice book - one of the lamest titles ever!

    This is one that made absolutely no impression on me. Except to think that while the hero might have been right about the heroine's relationship with her sister, I couldn't believe her buying into his interpretation so completely that fast. And he was an ass, so she should have accepted his apology not told him one wasn't necessary.

    This was a miss for me. The heroine was in need of a lot of therapy. Not for a minute did I believe that either one of them loved each other. I really like Sarah Morgan, but this HP was a disappointment.

    I really, really loved it; the hero was great and kind of funny in his own way, the heroine more than a match for him. The only drawback was the ending, I'd really loved to read an epilogue since I'm a huge fan of them, but never the less I enjoyed the story too much.
