Finn Hughes knows about secrets. His family is as wealthy as the Rockefellers. And as powerful as the Kennedys. No one knows that the men in his line have a debilitating, early-onset illness. He’s managed the business from a young age while his father served as the figurehead. All the while knowing there’s a ticking clock on his ability to lead.
Eva Morelli is the oldest daughter. The responsible one. The caring one. The one who doesn’t have time for her own interests.
Especially not her interest in the charismatic, mysterious Finn Hughes.
A fake relationship is the answer to both their problems.It will keep the swarming society mothers from throwing their daughters at him.And it will keep Eva’s mother from bothering her about marriage.
Then the fake relationship starts to feel real.
But there’s no chance for them. No hope for a woman who’s had her heart broken. And no future for a man whose fate was decided long ago.
I love anything and everything in this Midnight Dynasty anthology series so I was all in with this story. I recommend reading the novella Damage Control, which is now free, before reading this story. It’s not necessary; just a little backstory about Finn and Eva. I love, love, love Eva. The long suffering oldest sister of the dangerous Morelli family. She works tirelessly to support and care for her brothers and sisters plus her needy mother while trying to avoid her nasty father’s wrath. Bryant Morelli is a mean one and everyone in his path suffers. I so wanted Eva story to be epic but this isn’t it so far. It’s a sexy romance with a bit of sweetness but nothing like the dark sizzling romances in this anthology. I really like Finn and when he stands up to Bryant it’s thrilling. He’s sexy, smart and super wealthy with tons of charm. Finn appears to be a playboy of epic proportions but it’s a facade that’s hiding a serious issue. It’s not hard to figure out the twist in the story with Finn’s heavy problem, so the ending wasn’t a big surprise. There’s drama to come in the next story though. I love seeing all the terrific Morelli siblings as Eva helps out and provides support. This story is mostly about family drama on both sides with a fake romance that turns into more. I look forward to the next installment in this series where I’m sure there will be fireworks, hurt feelings and tons of emotion. Can’t wait!
