Just sitting in the passenger seat of Rafaele’s car is enough to make Samantha feel like he owns her again. Four years ago, she fell passionately in love with the wealthy CEO of a luxury car company. Samantha ended up pregnant, but Rafaele saw her as nothing more than a fling and ended their relationship before she could tell him. She thought she’d never see him again, but here she is sitting next to him. When he sees her son, he instantly realizes that the child must be his. Lashing out in anger that Samantha hid his child from him, Rafaele sets out to use his money and power to make life as difficult as he can for her. But what does he really hope to gain from this? ”



This is an intriguing romance between a super rich guy and a modestly off woman. A trope common in Korean dramas. Although, this one had an added twist, a love child!

Like all manga, this story was consumed all too quickly. Due to the rapid consumption of the manga, the plot moving rapidly makes the male character kind of creepy, had it been paced better, it probably would have come off more endearing.

Overall this story was interesting and the illustrations were beautiful.

About the Author

“Abby Green spent her teens reading Mills & Boon romances. She then spent many years working in the Film and TV industry as an Assistant Director. One day while standing outside an actor’s trailer in the rain, she thought: “there has to be more than this”. So she sent off a partial to Mills & Boon. After numerous rewrites, they accepted her first book and an author was born. She was nominated for the prestigious RITA© Award for her book ‘Breaking The Sheikh’s Rules.’
