Beth Mason seemingly has it all. A successful bakery/café called Decadent Dreams, good friends, and a nice home in Stamford, New York.
After her previous boyfriend dumped her six months before for not spending enough time with him, Beth decided that she had been through enough and wanted more in a relationship. Throwing herself back into the dating scene, Beth decided to go onto an online dating website called, ‘A Foreign Affair.’
Enjoying the different types of men from all over the world that ‘A Foreign Affair’ catered to, Beth became struck by a handsome man from Belarus named Yuri who was the former manager of the famed Rhapsody night club. After realizing that they had a lot in common, the two struck up a close, intense relationship.
Yuri, who’s been depressed since his nightclub burned to the ground and watching his best friend’s parents both die from a terminal illness, decided to take Beth up on an invite and join her for a fun-filled weekend in New York City.
With both of them full of emotions, will the weekend be just what they needed or more than they bargained for?"
Beth hasn't had to much luck in the love department and come to think of it neither has Yuri. They both turn to a online dating website where they start chatting it up in hoping to have some luck thrown their way. Now this site is unique and matches up couples from different counties, which I thought was pretty cool. Finally after chatting online for months, Beth decides to invite Yuri to New York for a weekend where things start to become hot and heavy. But what will happen when Yuri's stay comes to an end?
To be honest I am not a big fan of Novellas. They are to short for me to get involved with the characters and have that bond with them but in this one I took to Beth. I wanted her to find her missing piece of the puzzle. So I was team Yuri! LOL. On the plus side it had lots of steamy scenes that had me saying OMG!!! I wish it could have been a full length novel.
I did want to see more development between Beth and Yuri. It wasn't enough for me. The chemistry was kind of lacking outside the sexy bedroom scenes which was a disappointment but I understand novellas move fast because they are short and you cant always get what you want out of them. I also wanted more outside the bedroom scenes. I mean don't get me wrong I loved those parts but I am used to the build up and tension and this just missed it by a few inches.
It started off slow but when it picked up I became involved in the story that was beginning to unfold. I loved how they fell in love online. I mean it is possible and it was interesting to see how online dating was explored. That was a huge plus.
It had a lot of HOT scenes but I like I said before I just needed a little more chemistry and tension for my liking. Overall it was a dependable read that will have you looking into the nearest dating site, well if your single that is. If you like it hot you will for sure get heated with this read. Happy Reading!
