Blurb/Summary:Tony Sherman may be a modern day Adonis and a well-know ladies man, but hiding beneath his carefree, playboy persona is a man who knows how to be discrete. He keeps his desire to protect all those he loves from being seen by anyone, particularly his family. Fate intervenes when he uses his charm to beg a favor from a co-worker, a women who is unaffected by his charisma as she is by his looks.
Haven Pelletier is anything but the kind of woman usually found on Tony's arm or in his bed. She's mousy and rubenesque, and unmoved by his Adonis appearance. But when circumstances bring them together, she sees right through his tarnished armor—to the true man underneath.
As Haven learns more about Tony, she discovers secrets hidden deep in his past and a Man who might just steal her heart if she lets him. When life throws obstacles in their way, can Tony be the Knight in Shining Armor Haven needs both in and out of the bedroom?
Tony’s Haven by Dominique Eastwick was a fantastic read. I fell in love with Haven’s brutal sense of humour and witty retorts. I related to her size and the pain she went through in her previous relationship. The best part was she remained strong through it all, as much as she could. When Tony really appeared I totally fell for the smoke screen façade he built around himself.
I worried about Haven’s heart as the story evolved but gave her major kudos for telling a certain member of his family just how the cookie crumbles. Her strength enabled her to reach out to help another. I think that’s when he fell for her and his world tilted on its axis.
I’d never been angrier than what occurred with her co-worker’s and wanted to ruin each of them. Through accidents on the slope, crazy family and insane circumstance their passion still blazed strong. I enjoyed seeing the hero emerge small pieces at a time into a man I’d want to call my own too. Finishing the book with a sigh was spectacular.
