“It was easy to lust after someone. It took no courage at all. But loving someone was difficult. It opened you up to hurt, to vulnerably.” ~~ Melanie Milburne (Book: A Ring for the Greek’s Baby)
In the end, I decided to take it home with me. As I didn’t have anything bad to say about the author’s writing style.
Let’s get to the review of ‘A Ring for the Greek’s Baby’…..
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Mills and Boon.
Main Characters: Loukas Kyprianos, Emily Seymour.
‘A Ring for the Greek’s Baby by Melanie Milburne’ ~~ Synopsis:
Loukas tries his best to forget about his one night stand with Emily. But when he couldn’t, he decides to call her and find out if she’d be up for a fling till he’s in the town for business.
After getting out of a relationship that lasted more than seven years and destroyed her confidence in her judgment, Emily sleeps with Loukas on impulse at her friend’s wedding party.
Their arrangement was something to be forgotten and Emily wanted to do just that. Until she begins to suspect that she’s accidentally fallen pregnant and she’d have to call Loukas to tell him about the new development.
Before she’d gather enough courage to call him, by chance, he calls her, proposing to take her out for a dinner. Emily agrees and decides that’s when she’d somehow break the news to him.
When Loukas finds out about the pregnancy, it shocks him. There’s a reason he keeps far away from committed relationships and never planned to have a family of his own.
But despite his reasons and reservations, he’s planning to be part of his child’s life. From where he’s looking, there’s only one good solution for their predicament – marriage.
So he asks Emily to marry him and they could part ways once the baby is born.
All Emily wanted to do was tell Loukas about his child and find out if he’d like to be part of their child’s life. So his sudden and calculated marriage proposal leaves Emily speechless.
There’s no need to get married. That’s not how she envisioned her wedding or having a baby. She doesn’t want to marry Loukas because she wants to marry for love and they don’t know each other.
But when media begin to take an interest in Emily, she reluctantly takes Loukas offer to take her to his hometown for a while, away from the scrutiny of the media.
Emily has no intention of marrying Loukas, it’s clear they still want each other. It seems Loukas is bent on seducing her to say yes to his proposal.
Let’s get the same old problem out of the way – the heroine’s annoying habit of mumbling endlessly in her head. It seems the author’s heroines suffer from the same ailment of over thinking in their heads in Italics. I don’t like it.
Now let’s move to the characters — Emily & Loukas. They are okay characters, nothing outstanding about them. That’s not a minus sometimes and in this case I’m not counting it as a minus point.
The plot moves too fast, but is engaging. I did believe in their instant love and attraction part.
But towards the end I had trouble believing in the instant marriage and HEA. It just does not seem realistic for some reason as it seems something is missing.
‘A Ring for the Greek’s Baby’ was okay, not something I would have missed not reading or dare reread it.
“The odds of losing someone escalated the more you care about them. The odds of hurting them were even worse.” ~~ Melanie Milburne (Book: A Ring for the Greek’s Baby)
