A Beauty Uncovered by Andrea Laurence

The previous book in this series is Undeniable Demands. I love stories about scarred heroes who overcome adversity and find love. One of the things I dislike about some of these types of stories is when the hero acts as beastly as he looks and says or does things that are hard to come back from. This story avoided that trap. The hero, wealthy businessman Brody Eden, isolates himself from everyone he possibly can, except for his personal assistant Agnes and his siblings from his foster home. The scars he has from the abuse he suffered at the hands of his biological father, now in prison, are imprinted on his psyche as well. Samantha Davis is thrown into Brody’s world when she fills in for Agnes while she’s away on vacation. Agnes is Sam’s beloved godmother. Sam is currently between jobs due to a love affair she had with her former boss. She didn’t know he was married. She found out he was married at the moment his wife found out he was intimate with Sam and had her fired. Brody has also had a bad experience with romance. The last and only woman he was involved with was only after him for his money and stole from him. After a shaky first meeting, a mutual physical attraction blossoms and they get to know each other. In addition to becoming physically intimate, they each make themselves vulnerable. He shares his painful history as a youth and she tells him about her experience with her former boss. They both learn to trust and are able to bond and relate to each other on every level. I liked the sexy scenes as well as the emotionally powerful ones. The Tommy Wilder situation held my interest. I look forward to reading the other books in this series
