Meg Rosenthal: Matchmaker by day, realist by night, Meg is not about to get swept away by a charming, darkly handsome businessman in a designer suit. She’s come to a beautiful secluded resort to evaluate the private island’s potential for her agency, not to ogle its owner. But there’s something about the magnetic man that’s hard to resist, even for a woman who refuses to fall in love. Valentino Masini: A successful and drop-dead sexy businessman, Valentino is used to having the finer things in life. Yet he’s never wanted someone the way he wants Meg, who’s stirring up a hurricane of trouble in his heart. But just as he decides to convince her to stay, someone else decides it might be time to get Meg off the island... permanently.

Jewelz Review~
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Catherine Bybee's Weekday Bride series. This latest installment is a great addition. Can I just say that I LOVE Meg. She is so great. I love her style, her spunk, her fierce loyalty & determination. Gabbi is a doll and I hate what she went through, but she came through her difficulties a stronger woman. She has overcome so much and I know she has an amazing future ahead.

On to the guys now - Val. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm. I'll admit that at first I wasn't quite sure about him, but how could I not follow in Meg's footsteps and fall for him? He's a savvy business man who is able to go toe-to-toe with Meg - which is exactly what she needs. I think one of my favorite things is how she says "I don't do sleepovers" and yet Val manages to sleepover and then she says "I don't do long distance" yet Val manages to continue their relationship after she returns to California.  Michael is such a sweet guy & I'm happy that he got his HEA. I also personally appreciate that his relationship with Ryder was a secondary plot line, rather than the focus. Oh and I can't forget Jim - you can't help but love Jim, such a romantic.

That all said - I loved that so many of the characters from the previous books in the series made appearances. This group of family and friends are always there for each other - no matter what. And it's pretty cool that they have the right connections to take down Alonso in true James Bond fashion.

Seduced by Sunday is great because not only is it a great romance, but there's a wonderful action-packed adventure too. It's the story of Meg and Val finding true love, Michael's journey to his own HEA, and Gabbi discovering that despite some mistakes she's stronger than she thought. More than anything, it's a story of love - not just romantic love, but the kind of love that compels you to do everything in your power to help another person. Michael, Sam, Judy, Reid, Meg and everyone else have that binding love for each other - the kind of love I think we all want in our lives.

Honest disclosure ~ I received an ebook copy in connection with this blog tour
FYI~ not a "clean" read. Some language, open door intimacy, homosexual relationship (no intimacy described other than a simple kiss)
