#BookReview: Detained by Ainslie Paton #contemporary @AinsliePaton

From one of Australia's hottest new authors comes a story about an international scandal, a billionaire, and a fearless reporter who might just save the day...

Confined in a cold, dull room in the depths of a Shanghai airport, a journalist chasing a career break and a businessman with a shadowy past play a game of truth or dare — deliberately not exchanging names.

They tell each other their most painful secrets and burning desires. One dare leads to a kiss and a wild night of illicit passion, setting off a dangerous sequence of events, bringing exposure and disgrace.

Only the brutal truth can save them. But it will also rip them apart. And it will take more than daring before they can build a new truth together.

Maya's Review
Can I just say, what a book? This is my first time of reading this author and I love the clever way this story is written.

Get one ambitious reporter and stick her in a room for hours with a powerful business man. The result is one hot and passionate story with each one trying to outdo the other.

I must confess I saw some of the twists coming but there were others that sideswiped me and left me stunned in a rollercoaster ride. As I already wrote this is a cleverly written romance novel, a departure from some of the standard tropes.

My only niggle is that it had a slow start but once it got going, it flew.

So if you love contemporary romance loaded with twists you won't see coming, go and pick up a copy.
