Overview

Lale Deniz was always prone to wildness. But when her family is ripped apart at the seams, she becomes more reckless than ever. Desperate to stop her self-destructive slide, her parents step in and send her to America to live with her brother, Emre. Just the chance, she thinks, to escape the tragedy suffusing her Istanbul home.

Andreas Michos, Greek former NFL star, the recently divorced athletic director at UNLV, floats through life seeking fulfillment. He has reason to doubt his own abilities as a natural Dom and has given up finding his perfect mate. Until he agrees to a 1Night Stand.

Set against a backdrop of ancient cultural clashes and Mediterranean family dynamics, Lale and Andreas meet in Las Vegas at the Castillo resort for their date. But it seems Madame Eve and destiny will both fail this time, unless Lale and Andreas are willing to relinquish enough control to discover what happiness can be found inside the soul of the other. Will stubbornness keep them from connecting, or can they let go long enough to heal?

I keep going back and forth with whether this or Blue Cruise are my favorite of the Turkish Delight series by Liz Crowe.  This book not only the story of Lale and Andreas, but also kept us up to speed on where the couples we fell in love with in books one and two are.  I can not quite pin point what it is, but there is something about Lale that I really "get" and reading her story had me unable to put this book down.  I thought this book was going to be a BDSM tale because of Andreas's  background, but it was not really.  It was the story of two people who control their lives in very different ways realizing that they need to both give up some control and take some control in order to make their lives their own.  I am not sure if that made any sense to anyone but me, but there it is.  This book could be read in isolation, but there is enough going on with characters from the first two books that I think it was probably such an amazing read for me because I had already read the first two books in the series.

Lale Deniz is grieving - she has lost the one person in her life that she was closest to and that understood her the most, her brother Tarkan. She begins acting out and becomes self-destructive. At a loss with how to help her, Lale’s parents send her to spend time with Emre (Tarkan’s twin) & Elle to help with the new baby. Instead of helping, Emre makes it worse because it only continues to remind Lale how much she misses Tarkan - because even though Emre may look exactly like him, they are completely different. Elle once again steps in and sends Lale to Vegas on a getaway, secretly setting her up with the 1 Night Stand dating service. I really enjoyed getting to know Lale and her date/love interest Andreas Michos, who is a former NFL star. They clash from the start because she’s Turkish and he’s Greek. When you add in that he is a Dom and she clearly doesn’t see herself as a submissive - the sparks fly. What he shows her is how to let go, turn her mind off and for a few minutes & give control to someone else. I liked Lale & Andreas together, but I didn’t connect with him like I thought I would. I think that was simply due to the fact that this was a short story and I wanted more time to explore their dynamic together. They did get their HEA which they deserved given what they’d each been through. Great sweet & short read!
