There is no scale to measure love. . .

Minka Greene’s life is falling apart, and she doesn’t know where to start with putting it back together.

On top of that, she has to watch her twin sister marry the man she’s been secretly pining over.

What new torment can fate possibly has in store for her?

To her utter mortification, she wakes up naked in Jason Montgomery’s arms.

She’s never going to see him again, right?
Wrong.

Not only is the tall, tattooed-covered, brooding stranger the owner of the inn where the wedding will take place, he’s also the best man.

Everything about him screams out of her league. And yet, he’s made it clear that he wants her in his bed while she’s on the island.

Is this a recipe for disaster or a chance to meet the man of her dreams and find herself along the way?

#Review “Path to Passion (The Astacios)” by Nana Prah

💛 BOOK RELEASE💛

Title: Path To Passion
Author: Nana Prah
Genre: Contemporary Romance


💛
~~~

5/5 Stars!

Miguel Astacio gets a chance to correct a mistake he made ten years ago.

Afraid of losing his treasured friendship with Josh Carrington, Miguel rejected Josh’s sister, Tanya, after she professed her love for him.

The saddest part? He was in love with her too.

But it’s ten years later, and they’ve grown into wise, mature adults, right?

Miguel is working on it. He’d already realized he needed a change in his life, and a shot at a key position in his father’s company motivates the former tabloid party-boy to change his ways.

Women mature faster than men, so being two years older than Miguel gives the conservative Tanya the advantage in the wise and mature department, right? Whatever. The woman is dragging more luggage behind her than a porter at LaGuardia. Not only is Miguel’s rejection still foremost in her mind, but poor Tanya is also still smarting from an ugly divorce from Broderick who left her for another man.

These two are thrown together when Tanya needs Miguel’s business acumen to save her floundering nightclub.

It’s more than obvious from page one these two never got over each other, yet, they’re each convinced they would never work as a couple and attempt to find a meeting of the minds to work together to save Tanya’s club.

Miguel is the first to give up the pretense. Tanya is what’s been missing from his life since he walked away ten years and he’s not walking away again. He’ll find a way to convince her and work things out with Josh.

Tanya needs convincing. A LOT of convincing.

She got some of that from BFF, Becca. Everyone needs a Becca in their corner. She knows when to push, she knows when to back off, and she tells it like it is.

Brother Josh provided much-needed insight into past events, and I was like, “YAAY! She needed to hear that! On to Miguel/Tanya-time!”

But no, Tanya needed more.

After a couple of false starts, Miguel owned his mistakes… more than once.

But Tanya needed more.

And I get it. Tanya was overweight in college and had convinced herself—and is still telling herself—her weight was the reason Miguel rejected her. Even though she’s learned the truth from more than one source.

But she is no longer overweight, thanks to the stress of her marriage to Broderick falling apart. Yet, the woman still sees herself as this lumbering behemoth that cannot get out of her own way. She’s 5’7” and a size 12. Shut up, Tanya.

However, I gave her pass. Distorted body image can stay with some people for a lifetime.

But Ms. Tanya isn’t done with me.

She and Miguel have had no contact since… that night. All Tanya knows about Miguel she got from red carpet events on television and the tabloids. The endless parade of women and hard partying of the youngest Astacio is not a good look. Miguel was no angel and admits to it, but I thought it unfair for Tanya to base her opinions on tabloid media. But that was my issue.

Miguel’s persistence pays off though and Tanya gives in – YAAY, they’re a couple! True love wins until it doesn’t.

Tanya is betrayed by someone she trusted and ends up a victim of the same tabloids she judged Miguel by.

Now, this isn’t a good thing and Miguel rushes to protect Tanya from the hateful and humiliating things written about her. But, it’s kind of a good thing because she gets a front row seat at how the media distorts the truth and how ugly they can be. This should lead her to think maybe all those things she read about Miguel weren’t true either, right? It’s a time for solidarity and pulling together, right?

No. Tanya Carrington believes what she reads… again. I didn’t just want to fling my Kindle, I wanted to fling it at Tanya. Sheesh…

Fortunately for her, she’s surrounded by people who love her and have no problem telling her when she’s wrong.

And when Miguel takes Roland’s advice on a big gesture, he goes big as only an Astacio can.

Not everyone flings Kindles or yells at fictional characters (like me), but to me, that’s a sign of a well-written read that pulls you right into the story. Path to Passion is a journey with a bit of mystery and suspense, some snarky humor and smexy times all wrapped up in heartfelt romance. I highly recommend it.

Enjoy!

EXCERPT

Miguel’s blood heated as she gave him a wavering smile. She was just too beautiful, with clear skin marked only by a dark mole at the corner of her nose, angled dark eyes and full lickable lips.

“I mean,” Tanya continued, “I won’t even be able to recognize the place when its completed. Everything sounds incredible, but I may have to draw the line at the cages for dancers.”

He thought she might. “Trust me, if we charge people to dance in them, they will pay. The one rule is that they have to keep their clothes on.”

“We’ll see.” She stared at the screen again with her eyes unblinking “Um…” She rubbed the back of her neck and a light sheen of sweat broke out on her forehead. “How much will this cost?”

Now for the heavy convincing. He got up and stood beside her to point at the CCTV screen showing the dance area, which had filled up a little more in the hour they’d been going over his ideas. “I can see this place packed, people waiting all the way up the street trying to get in. VIP area filled with actors, musicians and pro athletes flying in to experience it.”

Unable to resist, he leaned close so they were almost cheek to cheek. Her heat and honeysuckle perfume floated into him, and he turned his head so his starving lips could caress her one more time. He kissed along her jaw until he met the sensitive area of her neck, where he teased her with gentle nips until she moaned. She sprang as far away from him as the room would allow.

What had he been thinking? Why did she affect him this way? She took away his willpower like no other woman had ever done. Thinking became almost impossible when she was around. The desire to smooth his hands over her incredibly silky soft skin drove him to get closer, but he stayed rooted to the spot, watching her rub the goose pimples from her arms.

“Answer the question, Miguel.” He was pleased to hear her voice quiver. “How much will it cost?”

He’d rather discuss the turbulent heat swirling between them, but if she wanted to ignore it then he should, too. “You’ve heard the saying that you have to spend money to make money, right?”

Her slow nod brought her hair forward. He watched as she brushed back the strands he wanted to filter his fingers through, bringing her close so they could fall into the attraction drawing them together.
