It’s Megan Welling’s lucky day. What woman wouldn’t want the ruthless, gorgeous, and controlling Jasper Sinclair tied up and at her mercy?
Jasper vows revenge on the sexy seductress who took advantage of him, but first he has to hunt her down. He doesn’t know her name, and has never seen her face. The only thing he has to go on is her connection to the painting stolen from his apartment – and their undeniable chemistry.
Main character, Megan Welling is adequately developed. I definitely understood her motivations in terms of the plot. Jasper Sinclair, however, is less developed. It is made clear that he is a handsome, wealthy, alpha-male, but the reader is given no other insight into this character.
The plot is interesting and well paced. It is a cat-and-mouse game between Megan and Jasper as they individually search for Jasper’s missing paintings. Both want the painting for which Megan modeled.
The plot is fun and straight forward. While I would have loved a longer, richer story line, the nature of short stories is brevity and unexplored plot points. Author Savoie could easily expand this flirty short into a sexy, suspenseful novel that addressed the theft and recovery in more depth while the main characters’ relationship blossomed. Overall, Eight Days in August was a fun, quick escape.
