Paola Lopes is an attorney in New York that lately has not been satisfied with her life and work. She feels like something is missing she just isn’t sure what that something is. She has also been thinking about her father’s family that she has never really known. When Rey Peralta first walks into her office she isn’t sure what to thing of the sexy man. When he first mentions her grandmother though she is instantly wary about just what he wants from her and if she is going to be able to do what he asks of her.

Rey Peralta has been running the Lopes family business for years. Now Patricia Lopes the matriarch of the family wants him to go get her granddaughter in New York and bring her to the family plantation. Once Rey meets Paola the instant connection he feels with her tells him that there is going to be a lot more between them than just her families business. First though he is going to have to convince her that she needs to go and meet her grandmother.

As soon as Paola gets to the family plantation she knows there is a lot more going on than she was first told. She has to figure out what is going on and find out the truth about the family legacy and if she is up to doing what her grandmother is asking of her. For to do what her grandmother wants is to leave behind the life and career she has spent building. Paola is going to have to decide just what she wants in her life and just what she is willing to give up. Giving up the legacy will also mean losing Rey and she is not sure that is something she really wants to do.

This is a very well written story that gives the readers plenty of twists so that they will hate to put this one down. The world comes alive as the reader learns more and gets more into the story. The words give life to the sights and sounds that the characters see and hear. Part of the story is in the Amazon and reading about the area makes it really come to life and is almost a character by itself. This is one book to pick up and read and as it is a novella it is also a very quick, satisfying read.

I give this one 5 red roses
