Sophisticate, older woman, younger man
Rating: 5 cups
Lily Fontaine just turned 43 and all she is thinking about is hot sweaty no-strings-attached sex with a strange man. She lets her friend talk her into meeting David instead.
David La Beau has had a crush on Lily for what seems like forever. Can he convince Lily they are worth more than a quick affair more along the line of a business deal?
Lily and David each have their own agenda for coming together, but fate in the name of their friend, has a different plan. Will they be able to combine business with pleasure and find a love of a lifetime or will they fail to see their true potential as a couple?
It was exciting to watch the slow progress of a relationship contrived from one plan that morphed into so much more. I was unable to put the book down because I had to know if Lily was willing to gamble on David and find a new life. David is a dream boat of a man, friend, and lover. The details of New Orleans were wonderful to read, and I could see the New Orleans that Lily and David saw. Katalina Leon has a magnetic writing style that encourages the reader to keep reading to see where it all ends. A Beautiful Stranger is a wonderful story that no one should miss.
