Title: Reforming the Playboy
Author: Inara Scott
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Kira had left five years ago without really saying goodbye to Max. She left without explaining why she needed to go and leave him. She had returned home to Passion Creek so suddenly without him knowing the reasons why. But she needed to, she was needed badly back home. No matter how painful it was for the both of them, she had let go.
Internationally-renowned artist Max Estin had reached the pinnacle of his career. He was one of the most sought-after artist of his generation, he was rich, he had all the money in the world, he had homes in New York and Tuscany, he was living THE LIFE: partying and having different women in his arms every night. BUT nothing prepared him from having an artist’s block. No matter how much he tried, how much time he spent in front of the blank canvass, he couldn’t make himself paint to save his career.
A set of private sketches, and one heck of a last will have brought this two souls together. He didn’t want to see her – she didn’t want to see him, but out of desperation she sought him out. She needed him. He wanted revenge. The moment their eyes met after five years, sparks flew, hearts thumped, passion ignited, it was like they have never separated. But Kira knew he would never stay, and Max needed to know what went wrong between them. Will they finally take this chance and risk to fall in love the second time? Or will they let their past get in the way?
I loved Kira, despite the fact that she wasn’t really the type of girl who took the risks. She was loyal to a fault and didn’t turn her back to the person who cared most for her when she was needed. For that alone, my heart went out to her. Max, on the other hand, seemed to have lost his way why he was an artist in the first place. He needed not just a muse, but a reason to find his way back into creating something worthy. Their love for each other was already palpable, but who was willing to take the risk when both of them has been burnt before?
The beginning has already had me hooked with the sudden twist of fate for the both of them to meet once again. The ending? OMG. I have no idea it could be just as perfect as how it started.
Swoon!!!! I have stayed until the wee hours of the morning to finish this one. I always have a soft spot for second chances. I have always loved reading the stories of old couples getting back together, the love much stronger, and the make-up sex which is completely off the charts. Reforming the Playboy definitely lived up to my expectations. This was a short sweet read, a perfect bedtime story for all readers who have soft spots for second-chance romances!
