Review: More Than a Mistress (Latin Men Book 5) by Delaney Diamond

The Blurb
Will their arrangement ever be enough?

Relationships are not a priority for restaurateur Esteban Galiano, and when he sees Sonia Kennedy at a party, he plans to make her a conquest in a long line of many. But she rebuffs his advances and forces him to adjust—determined to meet the challenge and do whatever he must to make her his.

All her life, Sonia’s beauty has caused unnecessary problems, and right now she needs a job, not a suitor. When Esteban makes an indecent proposal, her first instinct is to turn him down. But soon she’s rethinking her response. Maybe it’s time for her to use what she’s got, to get what she wants.

My Review
This book took me by surprise on so many levels. The fact that a hot, powerful, rich, Latin man would fall in love with a strong, independent mixed raced woman in a well written novel was not one of the shockers. Ms. Diamond surely knows how to weave an enticing romance. The story was good, and even though there were points where I closed my eyes and shook my head wanting to scream out no, I was overruled by the characters and their own personal motivations.

Was there pain involved with Esteban and Sonia’s arrangement? There sure was. If the characters hadn’t been tortured there wouldn’t have been a book. I guess living a luxurious life takes some of the edge off. But the way their emotions evolved while they were together was what impressed me. It went a different direction than what I was expecting and that was a good thing. Their resolution made me a very happy reader. Ms. Diamond likes to put her characters through quite a bit of stress before they end up with their happily-ever-after.

I give this book five out of five wine bottle shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased my copy from Amazon.


  1. Sounds good! Nice when things go differently than expected but in a good way :)

    1. When they go differently in a bad way, it's time to find a new book.

  2. You always write impressive and and yet simple reviews.


I love reading your comments.
