ARC REVIEW Mr. Rook by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Mr. Rook

Rook’s Island Series, Part One

by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
From NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes Part One of Mr. Rook’s Island, a Sexy, Dark, Romantic Suspense.

He’s Enigmatic, Dangerously Handsome, and COMPLETELY OFF-LIMITS…

The women who vacation on Mr. Rook’s exclusive island are looking for one thing and one thing only: to have their wildest romantic fantasies come to life. Pirates, cowboys, billionaires—there’s nothing Rook’s staff can’t deliver.
But when Stephanie Fitzgerald’s sister doesn’t return after her week in paradise, Stephanie will have to pose as a guest in order to dig for answers. Unfortunately, this means she’ll need to get close to the one thing on the island that’s not on the menu: the devastatingly handsome and intimidating Mr. Rook. And he’s not about to give the island’s secrets away.

Mr. Rook is the first part of Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's newest series Mr. Rook's Island. Yes I said PART meaning there is a cliffhanger, frankly when it comes to Mimi it only surprises me when there isn't a cliffhanger. Mr. Rook's Island is a Fantasy Island-esk place, (rumor has it the tv show was based on the real life Mr. Rook's Island, or so says the book) Here woman granted a fantasy, something they have always wished to do, and for a pretty penny Mr. Rook grants that wish. The publicity is non-existent it is spread by word of mouth and vetted extremely well, the private island lives well off radar.

 Stephanie Fitzgerald has plans of her own and they don't include giving into any fantasy. Stephanie managed to lie her way through the vetting and get a spot on the plane going out to Mr. Rook's Island. All this because her sister went missing and the last place she was was Mr. Rook's Island. The chances that Stephanie will get to met Mr. Rook are slim to none but she manages to lie, whine, and manipulate her way to Mr. Rook. Rook knows something is up with Stephanie and he has made it his duty to fulfill her fantasy personally, but it is way more than anything Rook expected and far more dangerous than Stephanie anticipated.

Overall, this was fantastic! The writing is dark and humourous, what Mimi does best. Mimi has raised the bar on this Dark Romance. The mystery and romance found on Mr. Rook's Island is a well thought out tease for what's to come.
