Meg Rosenthal: Matchmaker by day, realist by night, Meg is not about to get swept away by a charming, darkly handsome businessman in a designer suit.

She’s come to a beautiful secluded resort to evaluate the private island’s potential for her agency, not to ogle its owner. But there’s something about the magnetic man that’s hard to resist, even for a woman who refuses to fall in love.

Valentino Masini: A successful and drop-dead sexy businessman, Valentino is used to having the finer things in life. Yet he’s never wanted someone the way he wants Meg, who’s stirring up a hurricane of trouble in his heart. But just as he decides to convince her to stay, someone else decides it might be time to get Meg off the island...permanently.

Before jumping into my review for Seduced by Sunday, I feel a confession coming on. A couple years ago, I picked up the first book in Catherine's Weekday Bride series and fell in love. Then I had the pleasure of meeting Catherine at the 2012 RWA in Anaheim and totally fangirl'd. So one would think I've read every book in this fabulous series right? Well... I read the second book... And that's where I stopped. Could someone please whack me with a paperback? 

When I was offered an ARC of Seduced by Sunday, I jumped on the chance because I've been wanting to come back to the series that I fell in love with and this was the perfect opportunity. I loved Seduced by Sunday. From the moment I opened it on my Kindle, I was immediately sucked back into the world of romance mixed with a little bit of intrigue. Meg sort of feels out of place. She's surrounded by millionaires looking for an arrange married and, if she's being honest with herself, that has made her a little jaded towards love. When she starts communicating with Valentino, Meg is inexplicably drawn to him. Once they meet face to face, Valentino is just as drawn and attracted to Meg as she is with him. They love to push each other's buttons and soon they find themselves falling for each other when it just might cost them dearly.

Seduced by Sunday lured me in and wouldn't let me go until I finished it a couple hours later. The characters were fantastic. It was such a joy meeting new friends (characters that I need to go back and read their books) and reminiscing with old friends. I loved the setting of a secluded island where you can turn off the world... An island where not everything is as it seems. The intrigue behind the mysterious photos kept my attention. Now that I'm back with the Weekday Brides, I know that I'll be going back to read the books I missed while I patiently wait for the next book. And I'm hoping it is Gabi's turn.
