A delightful read that draws you in and holds you tight. The story line is wonderfully written and has very endearing characters with great interactions. A great start to what I'm sure will be an amazing series. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; al opinions expressed are my own.

Lea Romes is new to the wedding biz, having inherited the family island from a distant aunt. An island and side of the family Lea knew next to nothing about, she takes off for Infinity Island after arguing with her parents. After 13 months under her belt, she is in need of investors for the very elite wedding destination. A real estate tycoon from Athens, Xander Marinakos, wishes to buy the island outright and build luxury homes. Lea disagrees and is surprised when he wants to stay longer. Their attraction is instantaneous, so it is easy to understand the predicament they find themselves in a few weeks later. What I liked was how kind and nurturing Xander turned out to be, it was really his relentless pursuit and pushing of Lea to agree to their happy ending. The descriptions of the island made it come to life and I am excited to see there will be two more books starring a couple of people we met in Lea and Xander's tale.

The start to a new series by a favorite author. Once again, the heroine is strong and honest; the hero is honorable and determined to do the right thing; and they find a way to make things work. Always a HEA - which i love. And this story has a unique setting. I enjoyed everything about this story, and I'm looking forward to the future books in the series.

This is the first of a new trilogy and if the rest is as enjoyable as this one I can't wait! This is a sweet romantic read set on a private Greek island. The place is a well known wedding destination that has fallen on hard times as of late. Lea Romes, the current owner, is determined to return the place to it's former glory. Xander Marinakos just wants to buy the island and add it to his empire. Their negotiations take a turn to the personal when a night of passion has life changing results. This is a great quick read and one I think everyone will enjoy. I definitely recommend it.

What a great love story. I love Lea and Xander they are a great couple. I like the idea of the Wedding Island and the fact that they fell in love on the island. The fact that they are a perfect match and that a baby brought them together is great the fact that they butted heads and both had family problems made them real and to see that a family is the best thing. It was good that they both realized they had to forgive their parents to move on and realized that their love is real. Another great read by Jennifer Faye. It was well written and fun to read.

This story is the first in a trilogy and obviously, it is a standalone. The first thing I decided I wanted was to move to Infinity Island! It sounds like a wonderful, warm, colorful, gorgeous, happy place that would be great right about now (smack in the middle of my winter season). We meet Lea Romes, the owner of the island, and I have to say her back story is most unusual – I know that her life-changing inheritance would never happen to me, and that’s why I read these wonderful books. Xander Marinakos visits the island, with intent to purchase it, and their story starts there. (Meeting the handsome tycoon wouldn’t happen to me either but it’s a book boyfriend, right?) Lea’s character is very strong in that she makes life-altering decisions look easy, even as the thought of selling the island just about kills her. Xander doesn’t make the cut for buying the island from her and that gives them a free ticket to have a wonderfully romantic weekend, just for themselves. ..with a little ‘gift’ thrown in to surprise them. Both characters need to work through family events in their pasts before they can be together, as friends or much more. Xander is sometimes a clueless boy but to me, it makes him all that more adorable. Reading how these two get to their HEA makes for a great story. It touches all the hearts and feels you want in a romance story. Ms. Faye weaves much feeling throughout the day to day with these two and I can’t wait to read more.

InnfinityIsland in Greece is one of the most exciting and romantic places to get married. Lea would love to perform more weddings but the deterioration of many of the bungalows is not good and in need of minor and major repairs. She has finally come to the conclusion that in order to keep this place and her family history going she needs someone to invest and help her bring it back to the way it used to look. Xander Maeinakos is a millionaire and after visiting the island decides it would be a great investment. The only problem is he does not want to use it for romantic weddings but wants to build it into something that will be much more lucrative for his business. Although Lea turns down his offer he does spend a romantic and unforgettable weekend together. Fast forward several months and Lea finds herself pregnant with Xander's child. She must tell him but is concerned about how he will react. Surprisingly he acts much differently than she anticipated. Lea is a strong-willed person and is not about to give up her dream. Can that one magical weekend turn into a permanent romance? The book is very enjoyable and a fun read.

A fast-paced unexpected pregnancy story! Xander is determined to be a part of his child's life and sets out to convince Lea that there could be a future for the two of them as well even though she's determined that they aren't meant to be. The characters are interesting and the story line satisfying. When real estate tycoon Xander Marinakos meets Lea Romes, he's attempting to buy her private island resort to re-develop it. She informs him that it's not for sale, and business is done. They are each drawn to the other, so a night of passion concludes their contact ... until she calls him a weeks later to tell him about their little surprise! Lea Romes adores the island wedding destination resort she inherited from her extended family. She never plans to leave this heaven on earth, and when she finds out that she's pregnant, she just plans to incorporate the baby into her daily schedule and keep on working away. She never expects Xander to show up and want to show that he can work in her and the baby's life as well!

This story is the beginning of Ms. Faye’s new trilogy titled, Greek Island Brides. The first story belongs to Lea Romes, the new owner of Infinity Island. An island where those married there are married forever. Lea inherited the island from an aunt she knew nothing of, and from a family her parents never mentioned. Now she’s there to make Infinity a special place, but money is short and she’s in need of an investor. Xander Marinakos is a very wealthy man looking to buy the island and convert it into large estates for the rich. Needless to say that does not go well with Lea, but that doesn’t stop the attraction between them. They have a memorable weekend, he leaves without investing and both thought that was the end of their time together. But fate throws them a surprise. Lea is pregnant and Xander is at a loss, thus returning to Infinity. The plot was entertaining and sweet. Two strong characters, both hurt by those that claimed to love them, and both committed to their work. Will the time they spend together change their views on life and allow them to find their HEA, or will they let the past and misunderstandings get in the way of happiness? Another sweet and entertaining story by this talented author. I was entrusted a copy of this book . The opinions expressed are solely my own.
