I was given a gifted copy on instaFreebie Belle, a former Marine, is a tough woman but inside she is hurting. As a last minute decision, she flies to Miami to attend a wedding, not any wedding but her ex’ one. Peter Morgan, heir to the Morgan’s fortune, is a tough man but inside he is hurting also. He can’t forget his mother’s abandonment when he was only five years old. That is the reason why he can trust any women and because of that, his brother John, his sister Victoria and his brother-in-law to be Colt make a bet that he will be unable to date a woman for a month plus they have to choose the woman and of course they choose Belle. He meets Belle at his sister’s wedding. From the very beginning, Belle is able to see the sadness, the loneliness and the good inside him. People think he is just like his father but Belle knows better. I did like the book. I loved Peter’s integrity and honesty and the way he helps people in need and also Belle’s ability to see the good in people, even though other people are unable to see it. The story is well-developed with some twists at the end I didn’t see coming. The only but I have is the editing. I found quite a few mistakes. Apart from that, it was a great reading.
