I read the “spicy’ version of this story, and I think that I could have read the clean and been just as satisfied, M.M. Jaye brings memorable characters to the table, creating an intriguing story.

The story was, to my surprise, very character driven: build them well, and they will come forward and draw readers into the story, making sure that they form allegiances with them, feel for them and cheer them on. Add to great characters you then fill the story with lush description and detail that instantly brings the setting alive: that unique light and color composition that is only found in the Mediterranean.

While engaging, I wanted more flirting moments and less ‘emotional angst’ told about the characters, especially between Monica and Alex. Their body language and interactions told us their issues, after some brief history and I didn’t find those parts were particularly informative after the first round. I loved their flirting – some subtle, some outright in your face, and there was enough humor in words and situations to bring some giggles, further endearing their connection. The love scenes were hot and satisfying, with the emotional components coming forward to enhance the moments, but as I said before – this would have worked fine for me as a ‘behind closed door’ read.

There are several secondary characters to intrigue, bringing appeal and personality to the story, with potential for further pairings in future installments. Well-written with only a few moments that missed, I enjoyed this romance: light and fun with plenty for readers to love.

I received a copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Monica Mitchell arrives in Athens for a job interview but she has a secret agenda too. Alex Argiros, the owner of the company, is someone who’s been haunting her thoughts since childhood after a couple of humiliating episodes that she had to suffer in his presence. By seeking to prove herself as a competent professional working for him, she’s really looking to redeem her lost confidence.

She gets the job but soon finds out that seeking his approval is not enough; now she’s physically attracted to him as well, in a way that she cannot possibly resist.
Complications ensue when they both succumb to their sexual desire, and what’s more, now Monica has to try harder to disclose her true identity. Being the stepdaughter of Alex’s greatest enemy, she dreads that her intentions will be misread should he find out who she really is.

I was astounded by MM Jaye’s remarkable writing skills. The prose unfolds effortlessly, seamlessly, and generally reads like something an experienced author would write. Therefore, I was amazed that this is a debut novel. Another thing that surprised me greatly is MM Jaye’s proficient command of English despite being a native Greek speaker.

This book is a true delight to read; not only because of the humor that had me laughing out loud (especially the eating scene under the desk but let me not say more and spoil it!), but also because of the freshness of the prose. MM Jaye seems to have a natural gift for bringing scenery to life and that’s a delightful advantage in a story that unfolds in rare corners of Athens that still maintain their old charm; not to mention the breathtaking Greek island of Alonissos.

Fate Accompli is deliciously romantic, funny, sexy, and utterly believable.Read more ›

Monica Mitchell, 24 years old, returns to Athens from Boston with only one goal in mind – work for Alex Argiros, a wealthy as well as stunning businessman who used to be her older brother’s best friend and who she hasn’t seen for years. However, after a lot of embarrassing moments in front of her childhood crush, she can’t bear the thought of him finding out who she is at least not before she makes him see who she has become and that is a confident young woman. She gets the position as well as his heart, something that she had not expected. Now she is even more determined to keep her secret safe. Otherwise, he will destroy her. You see, her brother and Alex are now the biggest business rivals in Greece.

I was so absorbed in this book, one of the best of its genre, that I couldn’t put it down, at least not until I read the next chapter and then the next and then the next and then the next… It kept me at the edge of my seat. It is romantic and spicy, sexy and funny. The writing is excellent and the plot is totally gripping. Right when you think you know what’s going to happen, everything changes. I highly recommend it if you want to experience how it feels to be in love. I’m soοοοο looking forward to reading the next book in the series!!!!

This book of MM Jaye is an excellent debut. Reading it made me lose track of time. The novel is such an easy read and totally captivating! The writing is very good, simple and the descriptions are so vivid that made me connect with the characters. Monica became my friend! I also liked the fact that in her book the author highlights the cultural features of Greece.
The adventure of Monica and Alex is a love story that lasts through time and an example that when two people are meant to be together, anything is possible!
I highly recommend this novel and I look forward for the next book in the series hopping this time the story to be about Beth and Stephanos.
