Library JournalConn’s next offering after Fierce Love brings readers back to Barcelona, a city known for culture and passion and where Libby Gunderson arrives for her half-sister’s wedding. The plan is to talk Maggie out of marrying a man their family hardly knows, but Maggie’s half-brother, famous matador Santos Aragon, proves to be too much of a distraction. There is no question that Libby and Santos are hot for each other, and fortunately their short-lived romance has the opportunity to last the summer when Santos, who was injured in the ring after a fan held up a mirror that momentarily blinded him, hires Libby as his physical therapist. But whoever has a grievance against Santos escalates the threats that endanger the whole family, and Santos might do whatever it takes to protect Libby, even if it breaks her heart.
Verdict It will take a moment for readers to wrap their brain around Libby and Santos not being related, even though they share a half-sister. Once they get past that, they will be drawn into a story that is both sexy and big on family relationships. Conn’s characters are brilliantly developed, and the plot is layered enough to keep readers in its grip.—Kara Kohn, Plainfield P.L., IL
