The breathtaking conclusion to Lia and Alastair’s relationship… is love alone enough to keep them together?
Perfect for fans of 50 Shades & Sylvia Day.
Everything in Lia Meyers’ life seems perfect. She’s made the move ‘across the pond’ to start a new life with the man of her dreams and is impressing her new bosses as the executive producer of a popular news magazine program.
Alastair Holden, the enigmatic Englishman who has Lia’s heart, puts her above all else, even at the expense of his billion-dollar worldwide media empire. Lia couldn’t be luckier, right?
But her lavish world of hearts and flowers soon turns upside down. Living under the white hot spotlight of the Holden family empire proves to be more complicated than she anticipated. She doesn’t know who to trust and questions the motives of her closest friends.
To make matters worse, Alastair begins to revert back to his closed off ways. When a life changing event thrusts him into chaos, Lia must decide if a diamond really is forever or if she should learn to cut her losses.

Effortless, Lynn Montagano Genre: Contemporary romance. Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I loved the first two books in this trilogy, but as it’s some time since I read them I needed to refresh my brain on the story, ( and that’s why I always like to read books like this back to back, I get the full impact of events that way, instead of them being diluted by time...) Its another great read but.....I felt all the way through that Alastair’s “closed off” behaviour was going to lead to some startling revelation. It seemed to happen so often, he was hot and cold and the slightest things set him off, a conversation, a question, his family phoning, even a photo could do it I felt, and as it was so frequent I just thought we’d discover some concrete reason behind it.... Once again I couldn’t help but love them both even though they were irritating at times. It just made them more real, more human. I got so cross at Alistair when he just shut Lia out – and then her overthinking, that was so real. I know as I do the same thing, spend ages mulling over conversations or incidents thinking what I could have said or done better, whether I’ve caused offence, what the other person really meant, ( because its far too simple to accept things at face value!!) There were times when I couldn’t believe she let Alistair get away with something without questioning the life out of him, such as when she walks in to his office unexpectedly and someone from his past is there...I’d have been saying “ why, what did she want, how long has she been here, did you invite her” etc. etc.. The exes, they were terrific. I love a romance to have some tenacious exes, or someone determined to split the couple, it adds such fun! This novel has a few and two of them are real nasties, who keep telling Lia he’ll return to them, she won’t last, she’s just a fling and so on. Poor Lia, she knows he does love her but with his past reputation its not easy to put their words and actions to one side. Overall its a great read, with some really special moments from Alistair which were so beautiful and romantic, but I missed the drama from the earlier reads. Somehow, though there was drama here it seemed muted, and I was underwhelmed by it. Maybe I was just expecting too much after the first two, I just felt I was waiting for something that never materialised. Stars: Four and a half. That missing drama just took it down a notch for me ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers.
