Overview

Billionaire Greek playboy Iakovos Papaioannou knew his sister hired her favorite band to perform at her birthday party.

She's as infuriating as she is intriguing, and she's can't keep her hands off of him. But she just may be the woman who knocks him off the world's most eligible bachelor list for good...

Publishers Weekly
MacAlister (In the Company of Vampires) wins again with her signature sass and steam. Author Eglantine “Harry” Knight is hanging out with a band playing a birthday gig on a Greek island. The scenery is fantastic, especially when Iakovos Papaioannou is in sight. The attraction between Harry and gorgeous billionaire Iakovos is immediate and intense, and the weekend trip soon runs considerably longer. Falling in love wasn’t part of Harry’s plan, and between Iakovos’s meddling ex, his troubled younger brother, and Harry’s fumbling attempts to pronounce his last name, it isn’t easy, either. Iakovos’s and Harry’s randy Tracy and Hepburn–esque banter is outstanding, and the characters are sensitive as well as snarky. This delightful and satisfying read is low on conflict, high on humor, and stratospheric on sexy sizzle. (Dec.)

Katie MacAlister has a winner in her newest book. Eglantine (Harry) Knight is filling in for a friend and managing a singing group playing at a birthday party on a small Greek island. The party is being held for the sister of hunky billionaire Iakovos Papaioannou. When the two meet, sparks fly and they embark on a spicy affair. The relationship starts early and heats up fast in this book, and I wondered how Ms. MacAlister would sustain the reader¿s interest. It wasn¿t a problem, I couldn¿t stop reading. In the middle of the book, it seemed as though the story was going to use an old romance novel plot but it was tweaked enough to keep the story going. I really enjoyed Harry¿s inability to remember ¿Yacky¿s¿ real names. All through the book she comes up with some really ingenious versions. Although there is some conflict in the book, it is handled maturely with none of the annoying misunderstandings that drive the couple apart and really frustrate the reader. The secondary characters are fleshed out enough to drive the story and create interest. I hope a future book will focus on Theo, the troublemaking younger brother in the family. All in all, an enjoyable book that is a departure from the usual paranormal books that Ms. MacAlister writes. (I am a big fan of her Dragon series). It would be great if this is the first in a trilogy about the Papaioannou siblings.

Katie takes a break from her normal routine with this refreshing novel about love and misunderstanding. The characters offer enough depth the make you want them to succeed without the unnecessary angst found in so many novels today. This unlikely duo works! Fun light read

O.M.G. If you have not read It's All Greek To Me, then you must! Katie MacAlister hits a home run with this book! From the very first chapter Harry and Yacky are a dynamic duo that the reader cannot help but fall in love with! Katie's sense of humor is brilliant and she will keep you laughing throughout the entire book! And once you've read the last page, you will want to start all over again! Katie leaves us all begging for a sequel. (PLEASE KATIE!!!) *Also, Katie's other contemporaries are laugh out loud funny*

After having read more romance novels than I'd ever admit to out loud, I've become quite used to their formula of man and woman meet, are attracted, conflict arises, they fight the attraction, give in to the attraction, overcome the conflict, and live happily ever after. This story lacks a prevailing conflict. The happily ever after happens quite quickly, and though there are speed bumps, they are easily overcome with trust and love. While that is a refreshing change in a very well-trodden genre, in this case there was a bit of lack of substance. Despite this, the story is fluid and the dialogue is some of MacAlister's best. The book's greatest strength is that almost all of the characters are very well developed. The main characters' intimate in-jokes are sweet and funny, and when the hero finally declared his feelings, I laughed so hard I had to stop reading to recover! I've read and enjoyed all of the Dark Ones novels and as much as I loved all of their characters, Harry and "Yacky" are among my favorites she ever created. Definitely worth a read, and one I'm keeping.

I have been a fan of Katie's for a long time- and kbowing her as a paranormal author, I now can't wait for more of her comtemporary titles. As usual, you are swept up in the lives of her characters from the first paragraph. Instead of having Jake and Harry fall in love over the booj, they both fall very hard at the begining and you get the joy of seeing it grow over time. You can't go wrong with @katiemacalister as you will always feel for her characters long after the story is read and root for more.

Another funny Katie Macallister book! The couple gets together quickly, but that's pretty common for Katie's contemporary books. The humor is fantastic. One of my biggest pet peeves is when the hero or heroine misinterprets something simple and jumps to horrible conclusions. In this book, it's refreshing to see two mature peole having a rational, albeit extremely funny, conversation to work out their problems.

I really enjoyed this book! And absolutly loved that Harry was a "real" size, "real" looks, "real" smart lady! Because really let's face it, i can't be the ONLY brown haired tall a little plump lady that's tired of reading about, 5'2-4", blonde/red haired, green eyed, size 4's! Nice change!
