Raphael’s Fling (The Darcy Brothers #2)


By Alix Nichols

I’m Mia, and I dream about publishing a book on medieval Paris.

Except… I’m better qualified for writing a manual on how to go from a budding scholar to a pregnant runaway in three easy steps.

– – –

My sister Eva carries a torch for the wrong man. Here’s the gist of my sermons to her: “Drooling over your hunky astronaut boss is a loser’s trek to Calamity with three stops along the way: Heartbreak, Job Loss, and Spinsterhood.”

The thing is, I’m in a terrible—you could even say impossible—position to lecture Eva.
I’m attracted to my own boss.
Raphael d’Arcy is funny, smart, and uber-rich. He’s also smoking hot. That alone should have scared me away, were I not such a dolt, my academic achievements notwithstanding.
But there’s more.
Raphael is France’s most notorious playboy who doesn’t do relationships. He does one-night stands. If sufficiently intrigued, he might do a fling. Which is the most I could ever hope to have with him—a short-lived fling.
So what, right? It’s not the end of the world.
But consider this: Getting my heart broken by Raphael d’Arcy is the least of my worries. Some very serious merde has been piling up in my life lately.
And it’s about to hit the fan.
RAPHAEL’S FLING is a sexy standalone romantic comedy. No cliffhangers. GUARANTEED: a swoony bad-boy hero, laugh-out-loud moments and a happily-ever-after.
My review

I’m pretty sure people will either love this book or not enjoy it at all. I have never read a book by the same author, but the synopsis intrigued me. Clandestine affair between the big boss and the intern sounded exciting, throw in an unplanned pregnancy and you should have a great book. Unfortunately, I didn’t get that far (i.e. the pregnancy bit) in the book, I got so confused about what was happening when, there was some jumping back and forth in time and at some point I gave up. It must be said, that I’m really picky when it comes to books written in first person. I’m always more critical with books in first person. I also read the ARC on my Kindle so the final version in paper form might be formatted differently and the sequence of events clearer. In any case, this is my personal experience with the book and I encourage you to make up your own mind if the synopsis catches you eye!
