Blog Tour & Giveaway: Discretion [The Dumonts 01] by Karina Halle!

Publication date: 6th August 2019
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: The Riviera means indulgence—if you’ve got money. For Sadie Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck student, the Riviera means dingy hostels and back streets. When a wrong turn puts her in jeopardy, the last thing she expects is to be saved by the most handsome stranger she’s ever locked eyes with. When she later wakes up in a luxury suite with a Mediterranean view, she’s in the tender care of her rescuer: Olivier Dumont, France’s most eligible bachelor, billionaire hotelier, and heir to the Dumont fashion fortune.

Olivier also owns his reputation for scandal. But Sadie is unlike any woman he’s ever met. Her humble persona and wild innocence promise real passion. He’s promising Sadie something too: anything she wants. From Bordeaux to Cannes to Paris, Sadie’s past in America is swept away and replaced with a fantasy too good to be true.

Pulled into Olivier’s orbit of wealth, glamour, and excess, Sadie discovers that the Dumont dynasty comes with a legacy of wicked secrets. And Olivier’s secrets may be the most damning of all…

I've read a few of this author's books and they do tend to be a bit of a hit or miss for me because her books are all different! I've enjoyed a few of them though, so I always tend to buy her books, especially if they sound like something I would enjoy! I knew that this book was releasing soon and I received an ARC of it! I was intrigued by the synopsis, so I started reading it as soon as I could! After reading this book, I can say that I enjoyed it more than I was expecting too! The plot kept me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next and it developed at the perfect pace for things to develop! There was also plenty of romance in the plot, which allowed for quite a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters! There were a few secrets as well that had a big impact once they were revealed and they changed the plot a lot! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Sadie was the main female character, and in this book she was travelling through Europe before going back to college and look after her mother! I liked Sadie a lot in this book! Her life did change quickly and she was a bit out of her depth because she was suddenly surrounded by wealth and powerful people, but I felt like she held her own! Sadie also tried her best to be there for her love interest and support him! Olivier was the main male character and love interest of Sadie! Olivier was seriously hot and he came from a wealthy family and had a lot of money! He had a hugely successful job that he was good at too! I did think that Olivier was going to be a complete ass because he came from money, but he was actually quite sweet and he made sure that Sadie was okay! Olivier was also hiding a big secret in this book and it did change things for him and his family when it was revealed! I also felt like Olivier had learned from his mistake and regretted it! This book was written from both Sadie and Olivier's point of view, which I loved! I was hoping that it was going to be written from dual point of view before I started reading and I'm really happy that it was! It added a lot to the plot, especially as both characters didn't spend every second of the plot together and they were both dealing with their own situations too! It helped me connect and understand Sadie and Olivier too! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to focus on secondary characters from this book, but this has me even more excited to read it because I'm intrigued to read their story! The next book releases in November, which isn't that long of a wait! At least it's out this year lol! I'll definitely be grabbing a copy once it releases and giving it a read! The cover for this book is also seriously hot! I loved it as soon as I saw it and it would definitely draw me to the book and make me check it out! The cover model is really hot too and is the perfect Olivier! Big thank you to Montlake Romance for an ARC of Discretion!
