A Wife In Every Sense by Joanne Walsh

A Wife in Every Sense by Joanna Walsh
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication: September 14th, 2015 by Entangled Publishing

Kate Burrows is crushing on her boss big time. Aleksei Aleksanou is tall, dark, and every inch the image of a classic Greek god—if said Greek god was incredibly sexy, rich, and a complete player. The only way she can get over him is by quitting her job and seeing the world...once she indulges in one wickedly-hot night with him.

Only now she's pregnant.

Aleksei is furious when Kate arrives on the small Greek island of Naxea and tries to hide the truth for him. He takes matters into his own hands—by announcing the pregnancy to his family and asking her to marry him. Now Kate must decide if she can marry the man of her hottest, sexiest dreams...knowing she will never be the wife of his heart. 


About the Author

Joanne Walsh became hooked on romance when her grandma gave her a copy of Gone with the Wind for her birthday. The teachers at her strict girls' school didn't approve of reading such a 'racy' novel and confiscated it. But Joanne had been introduced to Rhett Butler and so began her life-long love affair with the rogue alpha hero. She became a voracious romance reader and, later, enjoyed a long career as an editor for one of the world's leading women's fiction publishers, where she collaborated with some wonderful writers.

These days, Joanne lives in the south of England and divides her time between working as a freelance fiction editor and writing romance, and spending time with her very own real-life hero...

Genre: Romance - Office Affair
Stars: 3/5
Heat: 2/5
Plot: 3/5

Allow me to introduce,  Aleksei Aleksanou - Rich, Greek Playboy & Real Estate Mogul - vows never to let a woman hurt him and claims he is incapable of love.  He does however know how to find pleasure with a woman and he is known to quickly tire of each..leaving them with a parting gift and moving on..

Then there is Kate Burrows, she has been hurt badly and is ashamed of her past. She works for Aleksei and has had a crush on him for probably as long as she has worked for him, but she knows he is a playboy.  She knows she should stay away from him but we don't always do what we know we should.

This was my first book by author Joanne Walsh and I was little disappointed.  Overall, I would say this book is mediocre  - it seemed to lack substance, has frequent time jumps making it too  fast-paced and not allowing the reader to connect with the characters. The concept was good and what we do find out about the main characters is enough to keep you reading, but it may not be enough to entice readers to want more...3 Stars.
