This is the SPICY version of Fate Accompli (Contemporary Romance) for readers who enjoy sensual romances.
There's also a CLEAN version available on Amazon.

Monica Mitchell flies all the way from Boston to Athens, Greece, not to get a tan but a very specific job. Because besides an MBA, this twenty-four-year old has a mission: to prove to Alex Argiros, the gorgeous Greek magnate, that she has now grown out of the habit of flashing her underwear and looking like a zombie flick castoff … in the presence of hundreds.

The catch? She has to hide who she is. Thankfully, not having seen him since her early teens helps, and soon she gets all she wants and so much more. Not only does Alex not connect his highly qualified new assistant to the disaster magnate of his distant past, but apart from his admiration, he also offers her his heart.

Now, Monica has a new mission: to keep it forever. But first she has to come clean before he finds out her connection to the bane of his existence. Because if he does, he’ll rightfully assume she plays the part of the Trojan Horse, and then he’ll shed the sleek businessman exterior, letting his hot-blooded Greek nature take over.

She knows he could destroy her.

She knows, yet she needs just a little longer to savor his searing kisses…

Alexandros Argiros, president and CEO of Arger Enterprises, one of the leading natural stone industries in the world and an omnipresent force in her life. The man who, even though she hadn't laid eyes on him in nine years, had moulded her, steered her toward becoming who she was and led her to decisions that had culminated to this very moment. Maybe she hadn't intended to let him control her life the way he had, but now it was too late. 

Because it seemed that no matter how many acheivements she added to her resume, no matter how many accolades she received for others, if Alex had the same opinion of her as the one he'd formed years ago, she wouldn't become whole as a person. 

He knew only too well that women were drawn to him like moths to a flame. Him, his wallet, his power, who knew? And who cared, since he took form them what he wanted, satisfied them the way they wanted and everyone was happy. 

Who was the wrongdoer, and who had served justice? Who had ruined an innocent girl's reputation and shattered her heart, unable to see past circumstantial evidence and his fixation on her family? The villain in this story was none other than himself.

Monica Mitchell has been waiting a long time to work for Alex Argiros, the CEO of her step fathers top competitor in the stone industry. She has done all her homework, worked her way up and perfected her resume so that one day she could work for Alex. Why, you ask is this one thing so important? Well Monica embarrassed herself in front of Alex years ago and she won't rest till she can right these unfortunate occurrences and make Alex see just how valuable she really can be.

Alex Argiros, is a hard man to please. He is determined to be the best in his business even though he had to sacrifice his dream of being a doctor to do it. He has given up a lot in order to bring his father's company up to the top in its industry and he doesn't intend on failing now. When Alex meets Monica Mitchell for the first time (or so he thinks) he is instantly wowed by her resume, pose and knowledge in his industry. He doesn't have any idea that Monica is actually the little girl named Nicki who is the step daughter of his fiercest competitor. Alex decides to hire Monica on the spot but doesn't realize he is getting more than an assistant in the process.

The romance between Monica and Alex was instant sparks for me. I didn't need anytime at all to fall head over heals for both these characters. I loved the fact that both of them were strong, successful and a bit out of practice in the love department. It just made their journey more exciting.

I find the writing in this book to be superb. I can't believe this is MM Jaye's first published novel, her writing is well edited, perfectly paced and she told a great story.  I also LOVE the idea that she came up with a spicy version and a clean version. Not everyone is in to spicy romance, ( I am, but to each their own) and offering both versions doesn't hinder someone that might enjoy romance but tends to shy away from the more erotic type of romance.

Both Alex and Monica grow through out this book and they realize a lot they didn't know about the other person through the secrets they keep and the lies that eventually end up complicating things. At first glance, you might be able to lay blame on one or the other, but as this love story unfolds both seem to be just as responsible for the heartache as he other.

Come on a new journey with these characters, this story will "wow" you just like it did me!

About the author:

MM Jaye's mom claims that she spoke her first word at the age of six. Months. As a kid she would record fairy tales in her own voice, play them back and then re-record adjusting the pitch and tempo. Later, she used her voice to inspire young adults and teach them the art of translation. But there came a time when life took a turn for the worse, and her voice temporarily died out. That's when she turned to writing.

Fate Accompli is the first book in her Aegean Lovers series, set on the Greek island where her husband proposed. MM Jaye lives in Athens, Greece, with her husband, daughter and Kindle.
       "When Fate plays a dangerous game, will Love win it all?"
