Matthew Bennett has suffered the worst sort of betrayal a man can ever know, and he’s trying to put his life back together after years of unhappiness and emotional neglect. He desperately needs the care and devotion of a good woman, someone who will not only erase the hurt he’s experienced, but help him cope with the tremendous stress and responsibility he endures daily as the CEO of a multibillion dollar corporation.
Through the yoga classes that she teaches, and her successful massage practice, Sasha Fonseca spends her days helping others improve their health and wellbeing, and also learning to combat stress. She leads a simple but serene life, content with the little she has, but shies away from any sort of long term commitments or serious relationships. Her unconventional upbringing has also made her fiercely independent, and she won’t let anyone try to mold her into something she’s not ever again.
Sasha is enlisted to help Matthew in a professional capacity, but it isn’t long before she finds herself drawn to him on an emotional and physical level as well. With a woman like Sasha in his life, Matthew finally believes he’s found the happiness that’s eluded him all these years. But will his scheming, soon-to-be ex find a way to destroy him once again, or will he get the happy ending that he deserves?
Serenity is book 5 of the Inevitable Series and I have not ready any of the first four books and I don’t believe you need to. There are characters you meet and their back stories are lightly told so you know where they fit in an whose friends they are. The Epilogue was lovely and this is a really nice romantic read as it has a bit of drama and some wonderful supporting characters that help this love story blossom.
I love all the covers of this series, they are different and the pop of colour is classic.
Matthew and Sasha were an interesting couple and I did find the flow of the story at the start slow and there were sections particularly for Sasha where we went back to her growing up that I did find a bit tiresome. I put this down to the fact I knew we were heading for some major game playing from Matthew’s ex-wife and I was eager for the drama to commence.
My favourite chapter was New Years Eve where I finally felt their emotional and physical connection and I loved that and I must say I did enjoy their meeting in the first chapter at the wedding as well. Chapter 23 was a favourite for me with Casey and this made me smile again for Sasha and Casey became my hero in the end, he was a wonderful son for Matthew.
Matthews ex-wife and daughter provide some interesting moments that had me cursing out loud and hoping they would both get their just desserts. My heart did break for Sasha when Matthews ex-wife and daughter make their final play to break them up and I was shattered.
I enjoyed the second half of this story more.
