Sort order. Jan 03, Geri Reads rated it liked it. Flynn Ashton was supposed to be marrying Thea Morrison, but she ran off with Flynn's brother. Fortunately, Helena, Thea's sister volunteered to take her place. Flynn was in it for the business and Helena was in it to make atonement for her past mistakes, which she kept a secret from Flynn. I have to be honest. I had a hard time suspending reality with how the wedding played out and how easy it was for Helena to just say, "Hey, I'll marry you.
It was purely business. That would have been okay since that's what their marriage was but after a few pages, I wanted to feel more connection. So yeah, I wish I could have gotten the connection earlier. An ARC was provided by Harlequin in exchange for an honest review. View 1 comment. May 08, Gaufre rated it it was ok. Fast easy read. Utterly ridiculous premise.
Nov 28, Happily Ever Chapter rated it really liked it Shelves: sweet-contemporary. This story picks up with Thea's sister, Helena, stepping in to marry Flynn. Both come from powerfully rich families that merged companies a while back. As their fathers are aging, they wanted to know the company's future would remain secure in family hands by negotiating an arrangement of marriage.
Flynn was adopted into the family shortly before his brother was conceived. His father never had a problem voices his opinions in regards to "An heir and a spare. Helena was victimized at 16 years old and eight years later is still paying for her mistakes. No matter what she does, it's never good enough in her father's eyes. Even when she marries Flynn on the fly to save further scandal and speculation from the hundreds of social mongers that attended the event of the season.
Now, once again, her past comes back to brutally haunt her when she's faced with a clause in the post-nuptial agreement that she cannot sign without a guilty conscience. The story is wonderfully written, flows well and has excellently written characters. The plot is fun, frustrating, emotional, and hopeful. The dialogue is great. The conflicts are real and emotional with realistic reactions and resolve. The conclusion was solid, leaving no loose ends or cliffhangers. Although this book is just over pages, it read much quicker thanks to Ms. Pembroke's fluid writing style.

A very enjoyable read. Apr 16, Home. To read this review and others like it check out my site at www. It's easy to see how two people could end up in a marriage after a drunk weekend in Vegas, but to voluntarily marry someone you don't know well or To read this review and others like it check out my site at www. It's easy to see how two people could end up in a marriage after a drunk weekend in Vegas, but to voluntarily marry someone you don't know well or love, well its hard to make that believable. I did actually understand the motived behind this marriage, which is what I was worried about.
Honestly, it was more of a business transaction then it was a love match. And let's face it, even in this day and age, wealthy families do merge through marriage as a business transaction, so this worked for me. Overall, I thought the whole scenario worked for the most part for the story, and there is a lot of joint family history here to be sure. So Flynn is originally suppose to marry Helena's sister, a lot of preparation went into this marriage contract, but in the end Helena's sister ran off with Flynn's brother. It wasn't exactly what I would call organic for Helena to just step up and say, hey I'll marry you, but it worked for the most part.
The whole reason why Helena agrees to the marriage in the first place is because she wants to make up for mistakes that she made in her past, which are very hush, hush and kept secret from Flynn.

If I am completely honest, the whole connect between Flynn and Helena seems really forced. I didn't really feel like there was even much of a spark between the two of them until way over half of the book was gone. And honestly there was so much emphasis put on the contract aspect of the marriage that it was almost too much. But, once the spark did start between the two of them, it did keep me interested. That being said I didn't like Flynn all that much. I mean Helena has a past, and so does Flynn hey everyone has a past , but Flynn has let his past make him so unforgiving about certain things.
When Helena's past is finally exposed to Flynn he reacts so horribly. And even when he knows all the facts and feels a little bad about it, I have a hard time forgiving him. I guess I just don't really like people who only see in black and white, I mean everyone makes mistakes, and unless you have been in someone else's shoes you have to be able to at least try and see where other people are coming from. All and all, this was an okay book.
I think I would have enjoyed it more if there was more of a connection between Flynn and Helena earlier on in the book, but maybe that's just me.

I have not read the First book but it would be a nice addition to read about how those two ended up in this situation I loved how they tried to get to know each other although it could or should have been a bit more extensive. I would have appreciated if we could have Seen more of them together to find each other and fall in love.

Dec 21, Brooke i blog 4 books rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in It kept me interested and curious as to how things would turn out for the couple. I realized after beginning that this is a follow-up to another book that is very closely linked. I would recommend reading them in order! But I still enjoyed this one. As I review mostly Christian fiction, it is worth noting that this was published for the general market. With the excepti 4. With the exception of one rather steamy scene, the book is basically clean.
I received a free galley of this book through Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
Planes De Amor es la primera novela que leo de Sophie Pembroke y narra la historia de Helena y Flynn, lo curioso es que me descargue este libro junto con A Groom Worth Waiting For de la misma autora sin saber que estaban conectados, hasta que no termine la lectura no me di cuenta de que me habia equivocado en el orden y que deberia haber leido la historia de Thea y Zeke antes que esta. Si te gusta leer novelas estilo Harlequin estoy segura de que disfrutaras leyendo este libro.

Helena steps up to the plate and takes her sisters place and weds the groom in hopes of her father forgiving her of her past plus she still has a crush on the groom.
There is much that needs to be worked out between her and Flynn this is when things get complicated. Things got out of control and things happen which puts her in a not so nice light. Decisions are made that might or might not have been the right ones for her. Some things are best to just tell up front.

Flynn has to decide if he can forgive her or is the marriage over before it even starts. You have a lot of drama in this book, I would say it is pretty close to real life as it can get. My Account. Your Bag. Your bag is currently empty. Order total:. Look inside.
