Release Boost + Review – SMITTEN IN SANTORINI by Kat Mizera

Smitten in Santorini is the new sexy summer novella from Kat Mizera!

Mick Laughlin can handle anything – except a broken heart. He never understood why the girl he loved in college suddenly turned her back on him and he’s avoided romance ever since. Now a top young architect at his family’s firm, he’s been sent all over the globe to work on elite projects.

Four years ago, Melina Lakkas fell in love with her younger brother’s best friend. When his family made it clear they would never accept her, she walked away. It was a no-win situation, which would have been made worse had they discovered her secret.

When Mick takes on the design and execution of an exclusive resort in Santorini, he plans to stay as far away from Athens—and Lena—as possible. Then a fire at the job site leaves him with no choice but to call on his best friend’s sister for help. As secrets from the past unravel, can Mick forgive her long enough to forgive himself?

Smitten in Santorini is what second chance romances are made of!

This quick read has so much flowing from its pages…long-kept secrets and undying love, layered with suspenseful treachery and betrayal. This love story shines a bright light on how relationships will never survive without communication, honesty, and faith.

The characteristics of Mick and Lena mirror one another completely. Both share the joyous yet heartbreaking past of loving each other, as well as the lurking insecurities of not fighting hard enough for one another. Add in the unknown forces that broke them apart, we find that only Lena holds the answers as to why everything fell apart.

Resigned to the fact that maybe she didn’t love him, Mick is eager to find out what exactly went wrong and why Lena left him hurt and heartbroken. But amid recapturing their connection with each other, it’s outside forces that become the most challenging and leaves them with more questions once again. It makes you contemplate the possibility of their past somewhat repeating itself.

I really liked this story. The passion and chemistry between Mick and Lena was evident from the very beginning of their reconciliation, and the heartwarming actions taken to ensure their love and loyalty is what matters most to them both were pure emotional romance. I also loved reconnecting with Apollo and Paige from Adonis in Athens, which only made this book that much more entertaining.

If you enjoy whimsical love stories with a flair for drama and intrigue, then Smitten in Santorini is the novella for you. An overall great read!

The moment their eyes meet once again, Paige and Apollo feel the same spark that ignited them down the aisle. Will they be able to plan a future together or is their love destined to be nothing but a bittersweet memory?

About the Author

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
