[E-pub] ☪ The Greek Tycoon's Mistress ☨ How Long Can She Resist This Gorgeous Greek TycoonTheo Atrides Is Wealthy, Powerful And Successful Leandra Has No Intention Of Being His Next Conquest But When They Are Forced To Spend A Week Together On His Private Island, Theo Decides To Do Whatever It Takes To Make Lea Surrender Faced With His Relentless Plan Of Seduction, She Finds The Challenge Of Resisting The Gorgeous Greek Playboy Too Much To Bear Yee GadsI just did NOT like this book It started out fun, but as the book progressed the Hero went from being arrogant to VILE and the heroine went from strong to TSTL. Normally, I can handle an arrogant, truly Asshat hero upfront as long as they evolve into a worthy hero But not this timeTheo goes from bad to worse and worse and worse The scene that really threw me over the edge was when he drags her off to a clinic to see if she is pregnant because he believes she set out to trap him And once you had me in your trap you couldn t lose, could you Leandra Whatever happened you profited If you weren t pregnant, then you would be my pampered mistress and I would shower my wealth upon youAnd if it was your lucky day or night and you conceived, then your profit margin would be even greater You would be financially secure for life even if I never married you..And if I did marry you Well, as Mrs Theo Atrides the world would be yours for the buyingWait, but there isHere comes the real zinger or, Did you think you could hold out your hand for a cheque with enough zeroes on it to ensure that you took a trip to an abortion clinicI must admit I kept reading it Very similar to people that feel compelled to rubberneck at the scene of an accidentI just couldn t help myself But honestly, who could love someone like that I very rarely give a 1 star.but this was very deserving. I was fairly disappointed with this one I get that being kidnapped and held hostage by a sexy billionaire can be, well, sexy I didn t find this one much sexy I guess that comes down the the characters They annoyed me.Theo was cold and completely without emotions There just was no getting under his skin or into his head at least not beyond the I don t trust women issues he had.Leandra was whiny and completely closed off for an unexpected adventure Sure, it was an initial shock, and the way she was taken was creepy I get that But once Theo explained the how, the who, and the why why not take it as a treat An unexpected vacation, all expenses paid Sun, nice weather, blue skies, lovely house, and private beach with clear water as far as you can see color me lucky and keep me stranded for a month Normally I love these books, the Harlequin Tycoon s always keep me entertained for a few hours Not this one I was skimming parts of this one to finish as quickly as possible. 4 Stars Leandra is very loyal to her friends When her friends Chris and Demos ask her to pose as Demos lover to discourage his family from pressuring him into an arranged marriage, she agrees All she s to do is live in Demos apartment and pretend to be a air head mistress for the duration of Demos cousins visit in England One look at Leandra all dolled up in a revealing gown, diamonds on loan from Demos and layers of makeup, and Theos figures he knows her tune He s certain that Demos would never marry this woman, but he can certainly see her charms and that Demos would be in no hurry to part ways with her And Leandra plays her part well, clinging to Demos and making her affections most obvious Their ailing Greek grandfather, Milo, is anxious for an heir to the family name, and he knows that Theos has vowed never to marry so his hopes are on Demos and a beautiful Greek girl waiting patiently for him Not happy to wait for Theos to deal with Leandra, Milo has her kidnapped and left on Theos private island where Milo leaves it up to Theos to pay her off Theos is furious with his grandfather and realizes how atrocious this treatment of Leandra is, even if she is a money grabbing tart When Leandra refuses to be bought off, Theos decides to seduce her away from his cousin He s confused by the air head he believed her to be and the intelligent and passionate woman quickly becomes.Awesome This is Ms James debut and what a wonderful story Theos allows bitterness from his past to cloud his judgement and he finds it hard to believe Leandra is as she appears, a woman of great integrity and loyalty Leandra is a strong heroine who stands up to Theos much to his surprise Her loyalty to Demos in keeping up the pretense, keeps their relationship based on lies This is an intensely passionate, and powerfully emotional story Ms James writes a very satisfying scene at the end of the book that makes us cheer heartily for Leandra and feel deep satisfaction Well done SEDUCED IN HIS PRIVATE ISLANDThis is a very good story Theo is such a great character And Leandra isthan a match for him Professional actress Leandra Ross agrees to help a friend Theo s cousin by posing as his mistress in oder to resist family pressures to get married Obliging his dying grandfather who wants grandchildren, Theo arrives in town to convince his cousin to return to Greece and marry But upon seeing Leandra, Theo is shaken, moved, overwhelmed It goes far beyond a sizzling sexual attraction He then determines to make her his Leandra knows better than to mix with a womaniser like Theo He helps himself with women, samples and discards them But when she is whisked on his private island, she feels helpless under the impact of his sheer physical presence This book is full of emotion, the characters are very much alive and the ending is great PS There is a gay character brother of the MC Theo mendapat mandat dari kakeknya spy memaksa Demos, sepupunya bertunangan Tetapi sejak bertemu dgn Leandra, aktris yg disewa Demos, Theo tidak bisa melupakan gadis cantik ini.Ujug ujug Leandra malah diculik dan dibuang ke pulau milik Theo Awalnya Leandra marah dan merobek robek cek sogokan dari Theo Eh keduanya emang udah saling tertarik sejak pandangan pertama, jadi gak butuh pake lama utk mereka beruhuk uhuk ria.Tetapi menjelang bulan madu mereka berakhir, Theo malah teringat bhw dia selama ini bercinta gak pake pengaman dan menuduh Leandra sengaja mau membuat dirinya hamil Leandra ditinggal di pulau dan dijemput utk diperiksa utk diyakinkan kondisinya hamil atau kagak Koq bodohnya Leandra diam aja ya Setelah positif gak hamil, barulah Leandra marah dan minta balik ke London.Eh si Theo nongol di pintu, tadinya mau bawa lari Leandra, pas liat Chris, pacar Demos, dia sangka Leandra ber trisum Ah cape deh.Sayang sekali padahal cerita di awalnya sudah dibangun dgn baik walau ada unsur bodice ripper pake culik culikan segala hihihi Sayangnya salah paham mulu krn trauma masa lalu Theo membuat pria Yunani seksi ini jadi bodoh setengah modar Mau dikasih bintang 2 kesian, toh ini dibuat thn 2003 Yasudlah rating netral aja.
