Review: Been Loving You Too Long (DuChamps Dynasty, #1) by Seraphina Donavan


This novel follows the popular storyline of rich dude and poor chick falling in love... sort of? Ophelia Broulliard and Vincent DuChamps have loved and lusted after each other for many years. The story follows their rather roller coaster ride into marriage. After the patriarch of the family dies suddenly, his will dictates the three DuChamps siblings to complete certain tasks to get access to their inheritance. Throughout the story, Vincent is trying to resolve the scars left from a childhood witnessing his parents' murder suicide by car. While Ophelia cared for the ailing Thomas, Vincent tries to keep the family hotel business from floundering and being corrupt by another family member.
Forced not unhappily into marriage after a one night affair together, Ophelia and Vincent are married within a couple days of the will reading. After lots of graphic scenes of sexy time (involving the nice girl not being nice), Ophelia learns some possibly disturbing results, and Vincent is battling to trap the relative who is corrupting the business.
The story ends with another sexy time sequence and the happy couple vowing to make it work. Story was predictable and an easy romantic read filled with lots of sexy time scenes. To be honest, I ended up skipping over those scenes after the first/second one so I could continue the story. Not a mind blowing read, but simple romantic read to keep the reader entertained.

Note: I was provided this book by I.O. Book Tours for a honest review.
