Modern Heart (City Love #3)by Belinda Williams
Scarlett Wong has a reputation for toughness. A talented and often feared Creative Director at an award-winning Sydney advertising agency, she doesn't do relationships, she doesn't invite men home, and she never stays the night. The only people who see her softer side are her three closest girlfriends, and they're finally convinced they've found her perfect man: John Hart.
Scarlett's never been one to back down from a challenge and she's not going to start now. But when John secures Scarlett an invitation from one of New York's leading galleries to exhibit her artwork, it means putting herself out there like never before. Scarlett's perfect man wouldn't interfere in her life like this – would he?
For a woman who thinks she's not scared of anything, Scarlett is about to discover she's not as tough as she thinks. Will she take the chance to turn her secret passion into a career, risk the safety of her advertising career, and let John in? Or will old habits die that little bit too hard?
Belinda Williams has quickly become a new favorite. Her City Love series is great. Each one can be read in order or alone and each one provide strong minded strong willed females discovering themselves and embracing love after life's set backs have given them a single minded determination to see their plans through to the end.
Scarlett is one of them. She has found a way to embrace what has always made her happy and make something of it without allowing her family or her past to prevent her from achieving her goal.
A secondary win for me is the 'reunion' love story. For some reason I am a total sucker for those second chance at love tales.
Although I expected a bit more romance and a bit more seduction for Jon and Scarlett, Modern Heart still provides a win for its readers.
