Claiming the Drakos Heir Popi is a surrogate but the parents past away. Apollo comes in town. He is the baby uncle. He wants to take the baby for his family to raise. Will he succeed? I did enjoy the story of Popi and Apollo. Both were determined to care for the baby. I loved how Apollo took to Fatherhood. This is part of a series but definitely a stand alone book. Don’t have to read the other books to enjoy this one. I received a complimentary copy of from Prism book tours. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.

I enjoyed returning to the magical Infinity Island in the Mediterranean off of Greece and was soon swept away in more ways than one by this sweet, contemporary romance. Popi Costas, the island wedding planner, is nearing the end of her surrogacy for her sister and brother-in-law. Sadly, the two have died in an accident and Popi is willing to take on the responsibility of raising the baby, unsure of the intentions of Apollo Drakos, the uncle. The island scenes were beautifully described and the story soon gave way to Athens and more Greek atmosphere. Popi and Apollo seem made for each other, and to watch them grow to trust one another was a treat. A great romantic read!

Another amazing story from the Greek Island series. The story line has doubt, regret, fear, joy and undeniable love. Wonderful interactions between characters add to the story. Loved it and can't wait for more. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

I loved this book. Popi and Apollo are a great couple I like the way that he stayed on the island and help Popi. They both want to raise their siblings baby and they go back and forth about who will raise him.When Apollo relizes he made a mistake about Popi. He knows how much he really loves her/ I love the way that Jennifer Faye writes are characters and describes the places in her books. This is the second book of this series but can be read as I stand alone however the first one is also great. I received this book from the author n exchange for an honest review.

Claiming the Drakos Heir is the second installment from Jennifer Faye’s Greek Island Brides series. Even though it is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. I loved the first book and this one does not disappoint. Popi and Apollo were so fun to get to know. I was not sure about Apollo at first but he quickly grew on me. Sadly, the two are grieving the death of their siblings. However, they do delightfully bond (or disagree) over the baby that Popi is carrying as a surrogate. I liked their chemistry together. I give Claiming the Drakos Heir a well deserved five plus stars and I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy sweet and romantic books with beautiful settings. I can not wait to find out what happens next in the third addition to the Greek Island Brides series. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion

4 1/2 STARS! Torn between two homes! She was unselfishly giving her sister a gift, but after a horrible accident, she's all that this unborn child has left. Or so she thinks ... until it's uncle shows up demanding to take custody! Popi and Apollo aren't too sure what to make of each other, but when a storm strike and leaves them stranded with no one to count on but each other, they quickly bond and open their hearts to more than the bickering that's been going on so far. Really touching story with interesting characters and a heartbreaking back story. Pregnant Popi Costas thought this would be one of the happiest times of her lives as she made her sister's dreams come true by being a surrogate for her baby ... instead she's going through the pregnancy by herself as she braces herself to raise a baby she was never supposed to be keeping. Apollo Drakos arrives on Infinity Island to take his brother's son to the Drakos estate where it needs to be raised. He might not have been there when his brother and sister-in-law where killed in a horrible accident, but he's there for his niece or nephew now and isn't willing to take no for an answer!

This is the wonderful story of Apollo Drakos and Popi Costas that takes us back to beautiful Infinity Island in Greece. Although she has a heavy heart after the loss of her sister, Popi is excited to be working out all the final details of her friends wedding. When Apollo shows up during the wedding Popi knows it can't mean anything good but she has no idea how much her life is about to change. I recommend you grab a copy of this one and enjoy their stormy story as much as I did.

Popi Costas is checking for the hundredth time (it seems like that) that everything is set for her friends special day. Leah is going to marry the father of her baby Xander on the special Greek Island known as Infinity Island where they met. Things are going to be totally changed and updated on the Island thanks to Xander and his generosity. Although Popi's managing very well it is not easy to move around with being pregnant, and almost ready to deliver. Originally the plans were for Popi to have the baby for her sister, Andriana and her husband Niles. Unfortunately, due to a very unexpected accident that killed them both, the baby was now going to be her responsibility. The only thing she did not realize was that Apollo Drakos was going to appear and want to claim the baby as it was his brother, Niles who died. He wants to keep the Drakos dynasty alive and with the birth of this baby that was possible. When Popi first sees and later meets this tall, dark and extremely handsome man she is left almost speechless and breathless at the same time. She has heard stories about Apollo and how his relationship with the family is not close. He was not at the funeral, the wedding or other important events in her sister and brother in laws life. Fighting for custody is what she attends to do as she knows she will love the baby and with the help of all the others on the Island, she will have help. Of course, things never go as planned and therefore the bundle of joy has plans of his own. This book is enjoyable and of course, has a wonderful ending as Ms Faye always seems to deliver to her readers. If you read the first in the series get ready for some new and fun changes.

Although this is book two of the Greek Island Brides series, it is a standalone story however it is always fun to revisit familiar places and characters. Having said that, boy did I love being back on a sunny, warm, inviting Greek island! Well, except for the spate of bad weather this time… Claiming the Drakos Heir is about Popi Costas and Apollo Drakos and the story centers around the two of them and the baby that Popi is carrying. And the book is not centered around the actual baby, if anyone is worried; instead, it is more the idea of the heir. The baby does play a part but does not take over the story. What I loved about it, without giving spoilers: Popi is a surrogate for her sister and brother-in-law and is thiiiiiiiiiiisssssssss close to delivering the baby. Adrina and Nile, the parents, have died and Nile’s brother, Apollo, has come to claim the baby as the Drakos heir. Besides the chemistry between Popi and Apollo, they both have major guilt (about how they have treated their siblings in the past) and there’s the imminent delivery to get thru. Their budding relationship is tender and sweet, and confusing as all get-out for them, but how they get to an HEA is wonderful. We do get to visit with characters from the first book and that is always fun for me and Ms. Faye wrote Seb as adorable, as only a baby can be. I truly loved going back to the island, AND visiting the Drakos estate in Athens, and can’t wait for the next story.

In this second book of this series, we get the story of Apollo Drakos and Popi Costas. Popi is a wedding planner at Infinity Island and the surrogate of her now deceased sister’s and brother in law’s baby. Apollo is the adventure seeker uncle of this future child. When he shows up in the island ready to take the baby since he/she is the heir of the Drakos fortune, he not only realizes the baby has not been born but somehow he is attracted to Popi. A woman who will likely be an adversary. Without giving away the story,suffice is to say that the plot is engaging from the first page, and the complex characters, with all their imperfections, makes them real. At times heartbreaking as well as heartwarming, it’s a story you will enjoy. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
