Private Reserve by Cathryn Fox
Release Date: March 6th 2017 by Entangled Publishing LLC
Series: Dossier #1
Genres: Novella, Romance, Adult Fiction
Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter. When she started talking about plans after graduation, the only thing I could do was run back to Italy—to protect her from me. But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.
If she discovers my dark side, I don’t know if she’ll flee back to the states, or surrender to me. What she doesn’t know is she already owns me, and if she leaves, I’ll never be the same.
Having read the Hands On trilogy by Fox before, I was really excited to read her new series. Private Reserve is the first book in the Dossier series and although I've only read Hands On before, this book completely took me by surprise. Without giving too much away, (since this story is a novella), we get to meet Olivia entering a new stage of her life. After her boyfriend broke up with her she has struggled to move on, but since it is her twenty-fifth birthday she is determined to make the most of it, especially when one of her friends is supposed to be planning her the trip of a lifetime. Needless to say that when Olivia arrives to Italy she wasn't expecting to bump into her ex boyfriend Gio. Now she has to see him during her stay and as the two start to get along again, feelings start to resurface between them that neither one can control. It is then that secrets also start to reveal themselves, secrets that could tear them apart once again.
I really enjoyed reading this story, it was quick and steamy! The chemistry between the characters is undeniable and it is because of that that had me reading until the very end. There were things that I wished the author could have elaborated more in the story, and the end was a bit abrupt, but it all works out in the end. If you like steamy novellas than I would definitely recommend reading Private Reserve.
