My Review

CARRYING THE GREEK TYCOON'S BABY is a sweet and light romance set on a Greek Island between a poor heiress who is just trying to keep the island as it has been and a wealthy businessman who wants to buy the island. Harlequin Romance fans will enjoy the humor and back-and-forth tension of this one!

Fist off, I really liked these characters. Lea is this great mix of down-to-earth American sweet, with a huge heart, but a stubborn streak a mile wide. Xander is charming, intelligent, and drop-dead gorgeous (of course). He's career-minded all the way and has always put work first. It's quite a shake-up for him when he finds out that Lea is carrying his baby. There are also a couple of side characters that added to the story and I'm sure readers will be seeing more of in future books. I enjoyed seeing Lea and Xander get to know each other since they really didn't before and how they try to figure out what their future will look like. The chemistry was decent between Lea and Xander, which kept the story moving forward. There are a couple of love scenes, but they were tastefully kept off screen. I also enjoyed the overall plot and the idea of a wedding destination island.

Now for what things just didn't work for me... The plugs for "infinity" from Lea felt a little forced and used too often. I got the tie-in for the islands name, but it just rubbed me wrong after a while when Lea would use it. Lea is super stubborn. Like overly, unrealistically stubborn. I didn't get why she wouldn't try to work out a sale of the island to Xander with the agreement that she run things and approve things, but using his capital to upgrade and bring the island out of the red. If I was Xander, that would have been a major issue for me as it really showed how little she trusted him. Then there were  dialogue and characters' actions that didn't work for me. I think I just wanted more from this story. More depth to the character so they felt more complex and more emotion that felt genuine.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I enjoyed reading this and the overall idea of the series. I was disappointed in some things and wanted more development in some areas, but again, I still enjoyed the story. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next two books.
