Meg Rosenthal: Matchmaker by day, realist by night, Meg is not about to get swept away by a charming, darkly handsome businessman in a designer suit.
She’s come to a beautiful secluded resort to evaluate the private island’s potential for her agency, not to ogle its owner. But there’s something about the magnetic man that’s hard to resist, even for a woman who refuses to fall in love.
Valentino Masini: A successful and drop-dead sexy businessman, Valentino is used to having the finer things in life. Yet he’s never wanted someone the way he wants Meg, who’s stirring up a hurricane of trouble in his heart. But just as he decides to convince her to stay, someone else decides it might be time to get Meg off the island...permanently.
Seduced by Sunday completely pulled me in. I haven’t read any of the others books in this series, but it didn’t pull away from the story at all.
I adored Meg. She’s a strong woman that isn’t afraid to tell it how it is. She cares about her friends deeply and will do whatever is necessary to make sure that they are happy. I also have a big soft spot for Val. He works too hard, and begins to loosen up when Meg stays at his island resort. We also get a few perspectives from Michael, Meg’s friend, and Gabi, Val’s sister. They are each going through their own battles, and deciding how to handle things in their futures.
I loved the mystery, even though it was pretty easy to guess who the culprit was. The plot was so much deeper than I thought it was going to be, and I wanted to get to the bottom of it as much as Val and Meg did. The romance between Val and Meg was funny. There were sweet moments, and others where I couldn’t stop laughing because both have the tendency to be a smart butt. It was great getting to know more about them, and see where things ended up.
I will definitely be reading the rest of this series. There is the perfect amount of intrigue, mystery, and romance.
