Review: Unimaginable Treasures

Unimaginable Treasures Unimaginable Treasures by Tarah Burke
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the first book of Tarah Burke's that I have read. It was a quick, light read. The story-line was good and had potential to go further. I would have liked to have known a little more of their backgrounds and see why they behaved the ways that they did.

Reno is a player. He works in a bar and easily picks up a different woman every weekend. And then, he gets a glimpse at Angie and something inside him changes. He finds himself wanting to look after her, something he hasn't felt in a long time.

Angie is a single mother. She lives with her sister, who one day decides to shout her to a weekend away in Miami. When Reno approaches her, she is both wary and intrigued. This complete stranger actually wants to spend time with her? Not wanting to fall for another guy who will leave, she tries to keep her guards up around him, but his charms work their way through to her heart.

Having not read this author before, I'm not sure if this is just the style that they write in, but I did find it a little repetitive at times, and thought some of the reactions of the characters were a little extreme, but as I said above, perhaps some further background on the characters may have explained that.

Blurb
When Reno saw her there across the way
he knew he had to make her his.
Meeting again at the bar down the road he makes her a drink,
offers a dance.
Spinning around on the dance floor with a beautiful woman,
How could he ignore the attraction that might mean more than his usual weekend trysts?
Could anything come of their short time together?
A weekend of bliss;
An connection stronger than he's ever felt.
Can a simple weekend with a beautiful stranger forge a connection that might last?
