Oceans Between Us by Helen Scott Taylor

From Amazon - He's a wealthy Italian celebrity used to dating beautiful women. She's a guesthouse cook without a penny to her name. When tragedy brings them together for a few weeks, an unlikely romance blossoms. But he has commitments that take him back to his jet-setting life, while her future lies in a remote English village. Is it possible for two people from such different walks of life to find a way to be together?

Oceans Between Us was a very beautiful read. While the two main characters were likeable, I hated most of the other characters.  Dino was by far my favorite character. Though he did some things I wish he hadn’t, overall he was very enjoyable. Maria was great too, if not a little irritating at times. She has a big heart, which is how she originally meets Dino. The chemistry between those two characters was explosive. I couldn’t help but root for them.
At times, the story appeared contrived. A few of the problems that arose seemed like they could be easily fixed. Other than that, the book was entertaining. It was incredibly romantic and sweet, and I couldn’t wait to find out how it turned out.  I think that anyone who likes books like this one should check this novel out. I doubt you would be disappointed.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
