After catching her fiancé Jack in bed with her sister the day before her wedding, New York socialite Lily Baron escapes to Rio, her honeymoon destination—alone. There, Marcelo, the dark and sexy hotel masseur, releases a heated passion Lily had never experienced with Jack. When Lily meets handsome and powerful Brazillionaire Gustavo de Lima, she can hardly resist him. There’s just one problem. He’s married. In this uber-sensual city, will Lily’s reluctance to be with a married man, in light of her own fiancé’s betrayal, give way to her burning desire for Gustavo?
My Review: I loved reading about Lily. She is one of those characters you just feel for and take her side no matter what. So when a nice girl like her gets cheated on, you want to go and chase the guy for being so foolish. Plus right before the wedding? Seriously surprised Lily didn't just make him "disappear". Not to mention, doing it with her sister is a big no no.
Anywho, she goes on her honeymoon alone and ends up finding this passion she never knew existed. Her friend tells her to go ahead and be her new self. So there she is in Rio, about to just let herself be free and enjoy this new chapter in life.
Then Gustavo appears in her life. And this can go really well or really bad. The attraction is there, but he is married and Lily doesn't play that game. Though she is starting a new chapter in her life, maybe she will just give in.
