Nacho Figueras Presents:
by Jessica Whitman
Series: The Polo Season Series, #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2016
Kat Parker thought she'd finally escaped being known as the housekeeper's daughter in the class-obsessed polo town of Wellington, FL. With her first blockbuster screenplay, she'd become the Hollywood It girl-until with one flop suddenly she wasn't. Heading home is her only option.
Kat knows she can write another hit...if only she can find the right story. What she finds instead is the drop-dead gorgeous celebrity athlete Sebastian Del Campo, who's just as well known for his tabloid exploits as he is for his prowess on the polo field.
For Sebastian, everything in life has always come easily-wealth, sports, women. But the perennial party life is starting to feel a bit stale. Especially after meeting Kat. Her easy laughter and candid attitude make him aspire to something more meaningful for the first time in his life.
As Sebastian tells Kat stories of his grandmother Victoria, a woman who could be dripping in diamonds one moment and tearing up the polo field the next, Kat's inspiration fires and soon the pair are back in Hollywood, working on a film together that could make or break both of their careers. And though the chemistry between the two is building, the film's irresistible star has other ideas...
I really enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down once I started it. From the characters to the backdrop of the story, this book had me hooked from page one and has me looking forward to the next book in the series.
Sebastian and Kat were wonderful, strong characters and watching them work to find their happy ever after was so satisfying. I love how their story developed. Kat is down on her luck, Sebastian is off his game, and together they seem to find the spark they both need to find and reignite their passion for the work they love, as well as for each other. I love watching Kat find her creative muse in Sebastian’s grandmother. You could feel the passion and creativity that consumed her as she prepared her manuscript. It was also wonderful getting to see both Sebastian and his brother find themselves again on the polo field. Both characters seem to find themselves by finding each other.
Even when Kat and Sebastian are apart, there is never a doubt that these two belong to one another. I loved that even though there were issues that kept them apart, there was never a lot of angsty drama that either of them caused. Their story was one of situation, misunderstanding, and a bit of pride keeping them from being together, which really allowed me to feel just how deep these two had fallen for each other.
Sebastian and Kat had a wonderful supporting cast of characters – from Liberty, the Hollywood star, to Camelia, Kat’s best friend. There were so many wonderful little side-stories going on that made this book seem like a real life read. And catching up with Alejandro, Georgia, Pilar, and some of the other characters from the first book was a nice bonus.
I would definitely recommend this book to any romance reader – whether you like books about Hollywood stars and scandal, or books about sports and billionaires, there’s a bit of everything in this one wrapped up in a wonderful love story that should appeal to everyone.
