Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart…
Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy.
With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist.
But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she?

Title: Truly Madly Greekly
Publication Date: 22nd May 2015
Having just finished reading this I find I am going around the house with Greek music playing in my head and a feeling of still being on holiday. The characters are believable and likable, each with their own complicated lives and in Ellen and Yan's cases they are both hiding dark secrets which they feel the other wouldn't like if they ever found out about them. The relationship between Ellen and Lacey was so typical of an older and younger sister where they can fall out with each other one minute and then love and protect each other fiercely the next.
Yan is an adonis of a man who Ellen is really wary of as she knows what these holiday reps are like but once they get past the mutual frostiness towards each other he proves to be a sensitive and loving soul as well as a gorgeous, muscly sex God!! Their relationship brings out deep feelings of tenderness as well as lust. Ellen knows she has to go back to England to face the music for her dark secret which is hidden in a locked drawer in her office but all she really wants to do is help Yan to overcome his weaknesses and live his dream.
This book is perfect for lying on the beach, ordering a cocktail and maybe indulging in a little water exercise as you never know who is watching you in Corfu.
Thankyou to Mandy and Bookouture for allowing me to review.
