REVIEW: Enthralled by Moretti by Cathy Williams

Posted March 20th, 2014 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Presents, Review / 0 comments

In Enthralled by Moretti (At His Service #7) by Cathy Williams, billionaire CEO Alessandro Moretti is back in lawyer Chase Evan’s life and this time he wants revenge for the mistake she made eight years ago.

EbMChase has worked hard to put her past behind but Alessandro is determined to remind her of the same and this time there is no turning away from him–especially when he holds all the cards this time around. He wants Chase in his bed and there is no stopping him from taking what he rightfully considers his. But his punishing regime of red-hot revenge backfires as his increasing desire for Chase threatens his legendary self-control, and still, Chase and her secrets seem just out of his reach….

Enthralled by Moretti by Cathy Williams starts out with a great pace and is written very well. Chase is an independent person who has worked very hard to escape her past and be a successful person in her own right. She is not a perfect person and has made many mistakes in her life but she has tried to redeem herself whenever possible. Alessandro has still not forgiven Chase for what she did to him years ago and is back in her life to get revenge. He was born with a silver spoon but he has still worked hard to leave his mark. The main characters shared a past and therefore their romance is believable.

There isn’t any substantial blackmail from the hero in the story as the blur suggests. They start their relationship with mutual consent and I honestly could not figure out Alessandro’s revenge plan throughout the story. Chase big “secret” which is the driving force of most of the story failed to impress me and the way she handled a certain situation towards the end also baffled me.

The romance is enjoyable but very straightforward which makes it monotonous at times. There isn’t much happening apart from Chase hiding her past, Alessandro being bitter about something which happened years ago and they both engaging in a physical relationship to “get each other out from their system”. The ending too seemed very abrupt.

Overall, Enthralled by Moretti by Cathy Williams is a well written romance but the author has written much better stories and as compared to her previous works, this one felt a little flat.
