I-The Australian

Synopsis

Imagine leaving behind all that you know and starting over halfway around the world. Imagine you’ve got no gut instinct to rely on, no natural-born ability to read people or sort out lies from truth. Imagine your heart goes haywire every time you stare into a certain pair of deeply mesmerizing dark eyes. Now you’re in Charlie Sykes’ (highly sensible) shoes . . .

Charlie Sykes takes everything and everyone at face value, and believes life would be a lot easier if everyone else did, too. Jace Knight, international Aussie hotelier and purported playboy, has never met anyone like the absurdly literal and obliviously beautiful American who applies to his personal assistant position.

The trouble is, how do you seduce a woman whose definition of flirting comes straight out of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary? That, and he’s not the only one after Charlie. Seems Mr. Knight may not be a reformed criminal after all.

Charlie soon finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of dangerous international espionage that takes her from the hip streets of Sydney to the majestic Great Barrier Reef and the wild, desolate outback. A terrible trap’s being laid, but how will Charlie protect herself and prevent a devastating betrayal when she can’t even sort out what her heart’s telling her?

 

Review

The story is about Charlie, a young American girl who decides to leave the USA for the Australia after her mother passed away. Charlie doesn’t know how to express or understand emotions, she always say what she thinks even if it’s inopportune.

“I do not believe it is appropriate or professional to engage in coitus with one’s employer.”

It’s totally Charlie, she honest and very smart, she has a higher than average IQ, her best friend is B and she actually live in the USA. She’s an honest person, a little naïve sometimes but so sweet.

Jace Knight is mister Hot boy, he’s handsome, rich and has an awful past. He likes Charlie and her way of express things. And I think that he loves talking with her like that.

“If my word’s not good enough for you, perhaps you’d like the preservation of your chastity included in the contract ?”

In the same time Charlie meet Sullivan Blaise and he’s a horrible man who will do everything to arrive at his end. I don’t like him and his manners.

The story is nice and well written, I have enjoy my time reading this book, I have laugh with Charlie and the way she talks and I  have swoon over Jace.

Lesley young’s writing style is good and this book is a fast reading. She writes a romance with mystery, sexiness, danger, hope and happiness. After enjoying this book, I am looking forward at reading the book one in the series, The Frenchman and see what Lesley did with my country.
