Title: It's All Greek to Me

When Eglantine "Harry" knight sets off for Greece at the last minute to step in as manager of a friend's touring band, the last thing she expects is to meet a billionaire Greek playboy. Iakovos Papaionannou is perfection on every level, except for his unpronounceable name. And Harry can't stop herself from falling hard and fast for him. 

Iakovoos knew his sister hired her favorite band to perform at her birthday party; he's just not sure where this six-foot-tall, wild-haired, tempestuous woman fits in, or how she's already ended up in his bed-and in his heart. Harry is so not his type. She's as infuriating as she is intriguing, and she can't keep her hands off his butt. But she just may be the woman who knocks him off the world's most eligible bachelor list for good . . .

First,let's get one thing straight.This isn't your typical harlequin type story.It's so much more than that!Trust Me
I liked the tittle.It was after all that thing that got me reading listening to it in the first place, after all.
It had some hilarious scenes(she wanted feedback on her..sexual performances).I mean it.Look..i have a quote to prove it !
I don’t know how one is supposed to improve when one doesn’t have any feedback. It’s just like writing, if you think about it. My goal with each book is to become a better writer, so since I’m kind of a novice at this, if you don’t mind, I’d appreciate it if you could provide constructive criticism once we’re done.”
He stared down at her in what appeared to be utter disbelief. “You want me to criticize the manner you use to pleasure me?”
“Well . . . I’ve always been a big believer in critique groups,” she said
I liked that the book displayed their relationship from the beginning(you actually get to see how their relationship progress from lover to girlfriend to...), but then there wasn't any major drama, any tension.(And i guess for the drama-haters will be a  a good read , but i love drama,and this book did not satisfy me completely)
A bad(ok..not so bad, but i did not get it) was their straight forward relationship at the begging.
I should also mention that i was a bit confused at the beginning of the book,but that quickly faded away.

The Characters &Their Relationships
Iakovos Papaioannou is a real-estate billionaire, 39 of age.His name is so hard to pronounce that Harry sometimes calls him Yacky(not sexy, but funny as hell ).
Eglentine( or Harry) is bold,funny,daring, and spoke without thinking!But with all the good stuff, there were a few scenes where i thought she was damn right crazy!She's also M.G. Renolds a thriller (with some romance ) writer.Also, she's unconventional, so don't expect this book to be either. Another 10 points for her acting like an adult(by the way..she is 32) in some situations (where i really wanted her to act like normal woman would when presented with the these type of books...)
As a secondary character i really liked Dmitri.(And i also Love this scene..from the quote below)
Harry:“I don’t suppose you’d like to go sailing or something right now, Yacky?”
Dmitri snorted. “Did you just call him Yack—”
“You say it and you’re fired,” Iakovos said out of the side of his mouth.

I give it a 3 and a  half  stars!(Why haven't i thought of this rating i gave to use only full stars...)..........Fine !I give it 3 stars. Even through there were flaws i really enjoyed it.And those who like harlequin-type clichees will too,also those who don't like drama, who want something between the no-drama and harlequin-type...and for all who want a to read about a relationship from the start.
