Review: Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon
Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon by Carmen Falcone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon is as sexy and funny as you can probably imagine just by reading the title or the synopsis.
But, what impressed me was that it was so much more than that. This is not a mere sexy, funny romance; it has meaning and depth. It concentrated on values, kindness, loyalty and serious family issues such as betrayal and abuse.
Most of the times, you read an either drama-romance or a hot-romance. Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon is both, something that I am still reeling from. The author accomplished to raise significant matters to the surface, but at the same time maintained the centre of the book that was Bruno and Addie’s relationship. Not only the book had a bit of everything in it, but it made it all seem effortless. The writing is beautiful and it has a nice flow. I admit that there were few times that I double-checked what I read, but the conclusion is one and the same. This is great book..Judging by the title, you may not quite believe it -It does sound too care-free, right?- but it is true.
Bruno has so many issues that he hasn’t dealt with. He left everything and everyone behind, but he knew he hadn’t escaped a thing. Crude words and cruel behaviour still followed him anywhere he went, still darkened his mind and still influenced how he view the world and others. One of the many things I liked about him is that he isn’t hiding his feelings. He knows he has issues that he hasn’t dealt with and he knows he must face them. Of course, he realizes it’s not easy but he still wants to try and fix everything. He is always aware of the situation and I admire that. It doesn’t happen very often.
Addie is one very determined and brave young woman. She has her scars, her unhealed wounds. She is scared but she doesn’t realize it. However, nothing seems to stay on her way for long. I mean, she did kidnapped a man who was 2 or 3 times bigger than her! She is smart and sweet and so fearlessly loyal to the people she loves. She is the supportive person you wish to have in your corner! And oh how I loved her reactions towards some people...Serena, maybe..Bruno, for sure...
I really liked both main characters, Bruno and Addie. They are as different as similar to each other. I believe that they are great as individuals, but they are amazing as a couple. Their dynamic is off the charts…A fact proved by their bantering and…..well...umm...the beach incident..
So, 4.5 Gorgeous Stars go to Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon!
