But his latest charity project, Crescent Hill Lodge, may be beyond saving.
The only person keeping the business afloat is the owners’ daughter and hotel manager, Magnolia (Maggie) Summers. She’s hard-working, loyal and kind to a fault. She also has big dreams that are stifled by her inner demons.
Despite trying to stay professional, Roman falls hard for this sweet, small-town girl.
So hard, in fact, that he wants to bring her back to London with him. His gift: an all-expense paid winter holiday in Europe. All Maggie has to do is say yes.
Only thing is, Maggie’s past is littered with broken hearts, unfulfilled promises, and stolen dreams.
She’s too scared to leave her family, hometown, and safety net behind.
She doesn’t think Roman can make her happy.
He needs to convince her otherwise…before his flight back to the UK first thing Christmas morning.
If you are looking for a book about redemption, lost love, bad decisions, a girl with a past, a millionaire guy who is not into tying you up then Crescent Hill is the book for you. I liked this story set in a broken hotel in a small island with all the ups and downs from a small town people, you met Magnolia and ROman and her family and neighboors and broken wounds and all in between.
I really like the tone of the book, is not what I usually read but I did enjoy reading a novel about a tv personality who fixes hotels for a living, so I´m giving extra points to the author for her originality, it was a fun book to read, I´m looking forward to read more books of hers. I don´t want to spoiled anything but is refreshing to read about a girl who is not 20 years old or a girl who just got out from college, I like books about real women, who makes mistakes and they´re not perfect or naive who falls for the first handsome guy they met. Real women have past, got lost a Little and then are back on the road again just like anybody else.
Do I recommend this book? Hell yes, I really liked, is about real people with real problems and real wounds who needs to be healed in order to get the best of life has to offer.
Unspoken words floated in the air between us, mingling with dust motes and fading memories.
Despite her mistakes, despite the hateful words I said to her, I just felt sadness now. Anger had dissipated into melancholy and heartache. My body shook with grief; it mourned what could have been between us, but never would be. I wanted to be her hero. But she was never mine to save. The harder I tried, the faster we crumbled. The faster we crumbled, the harder we tumbled. I couldn’t be her hero. And that just about destroyed me.
