RE-RELEASE REVIEW: A Problematic Love by Rebecca Rohman

A Problematic Love Synopsis

Eight years after her fiancé was murdered, attorney Megan Kole has fully reconciled two areas of her life: her intelligent son, who never knew his father, and the thriving law practice that is her late father’s legacy. The remainder of Megan’s world stalled in a paralyzing grief that she effectively compartmentalized until a transfer to Seattle brings a handsome, mysterious billionaire into her life.

Daemon Ros has been an outcast since the day he was born. His parents’ lavish but emotionally-vacant lifestyle prompted him to assert his financial independence at a young age. His ailing brother is the only connection he allows to penetrate the vault he has built around his heart, until a devoted mom and her precocious son introduce him to the true meaning of family bonds.

But a chance legal encounter where Megan acts as mediator in a Ros family business dispute leads to far more than either expected. When a shocking truth leads to a love affair between Megan and Daemon that is forbidden in every conceivable way, the barely-restrained chemistry that scorches between them threatens an injunction on everything and everyone they hold dear. As pasts cross, memories threaten, and lies surface in a trial far more deadly than anything inside a courtroom, an arbitration of the heart could prove the only way for them both to make it out alive.

Excerpt - Their Very First Meeting

I knock on the Presidential suite door at the Four Seasons and wait. My palms are drenched, and I can’t seem to stay still. The door opens.

“You must be Ms. Kole, we’ve been expecting you. Please come in.” 

The man is probably my age—early to mid-thirties, Asian, and his hair is in a neat ponytail. 

He smiles politely. “I’m Min-jae Kang. Please have a seat. Mr. Ros is on a call. He’ll see you shortly.”

“Thank you. It’s a pleasure,” I respond. I’m too nervous to sit. Everything around me is still so foreign. I stop for a moment to take in the breathtaking water views. Mega cargo ships sail by. To the right, an island looms in the background.

In the distance, I hear indistinct talking. After my phone conversation with Daemon, I’m not sure what to expect. I have no clue how this man is going to behave, especially now that his father decided I should mediate on my own. I hate being so unprepared for this meeting. I am completely out of my comfort zone. Right now, I don’t even know what the man looks like.

Min-jae returns. “Ms. Kole, please follow me. Mr. Ros is ready to see you.”

As we approach the room, Mr. Ros’s voice becomes clearer. “They’re fucking incompetent. Tell the legal department I want the whole management team fired immediately, and tell Schwartz he needs to get on a plane and head over there tonight to begin putting things in place. I’ll call you later. I have a meeting.”

The man whom I could only assume is Daemon Ros stands looking out to the view, his back is to me as he ends the call. Chills run through my body.

“Ms. Kole,” he turns to face me.

Blood. Air. Water. All that keeps me alive spirals into a vicious vortex and leaves my body.

Oh my God… it’s Zach!

My Review

I have wanted to read Rebecca Rohman as soon as I saw Love, Lies & The D.A. - I fell in love with the gorgeous cover and added it to my TBR, so when the chance came along to read and review A Problematic Love, I completely jumped on it! I was so excited to read it because I loved the beautiful cover, but the synopsis and the fact that Ms. Rohman wrote it, was what really did it for me. I was sure that this would be an amazing book and it was - I absolutely loved it and now I can't wait to read more from her! 

Megan is the best kind of woman - she's classy but passionate, fierce and protective, and she's strong but she also knows how to vulnerable and let Daemon in. Megan is sophisticated, elegant, smart, and stubborn. I loved Megan and being inside her head, she's a wonderful heroine, and she'll make you proud. 

It didn't take me long before I was a total goner for Daemon. He is every bit Megan's equal in terms of goodness - he's unbelievably kind, generous, and humble. Daemon is the type of person who will do anything for the people he loves, he's completely selfless and always thinking of what he can do to take care of his loved ones or what would make them happy. Granted, he does have his male moments and times where he's not the warmest guy in the world, but after everything he's been through, I couldn't blame him and that didn't make me love him any less - it just made me love him more. Daemon utterly stole my heart and he is one hero I will never forget!

One thought that I had while reading A Problematic Love was how real and believable it was to me. I actually felt like I was there with Megan and Daemon in a way that I haven't experienced with other books. I felt like it was real life and not just a story in a book and I really enjoyed making that connection to Meghan and Daemon! 

A Problematic Love is full of mystery, suspense, danger, and intrigue. It's heartbreaking but also heartwarming, it made me cry and made my nose sting, and it made me laugh and smile and melt. It's a beautiful, incredible read and I can't tell you how much I loved it! 

A Problematic Love is a standalone, it's told from Daemon and Megan's POV, and they get their well-deserved happily-ever-after!
