Tatiana March, Reckless Encounter
All women fantasize of making love to a stranger.
That’s what Elena Rodriquez tells herself when a potential new client mistakes her for a call girl. She decides to play along. One night of clandestine passion. No one will ever know. And no one does. Until four months later, when her law practice flounders and her only hope is winning the business of Maxwell Glaser. Max struggled to forget the pretty brunette who gave him the best night of his life. Now that he’s found her again, he wants more. Only, she turns him down. Max agrees to back off, but he didn’t become a retail tycoon by playing nice. His fortune was built through single-minded determination. And he intends to pursue Elena with the same ruthlessness...
If you are in need of a quick but fabulous pick me up, you need to read Tatiana March’s short story, Reckless Encounter. This is the first time that I have read one of Tatiana’s books and it will not be the last. Both Elena and Max are characters that an average person can identify with. The blurb is nice but doesn’t tell the depth of the story. Tatiana takes us back into both the main character’s lives and has us reliving their past. They are both jaded but with good cause and you can’t help but fall in love with both of them. This isn’t just a quick jump in the bed with a steaming love scene. (Not that there isn’t one!) This is a deep story that will bring you to tears of sadness and then tears of joy. Add this to your “Must Read” pile because it is an amazing emotion and complete short story. I give Tatiana March’s Reckless Encounter 4 ½ chocolate dipped strawberries.
