Left on bended knee, with nothing but a ring in his hand and a gaping hole in his chest, Ivan Rusilko lost everything when Jaden Thorne said, “I can’t.”
Now, six months later and despite her endless attempts to reach him, finding forgiveness for Jaden’s indiscretion is last on his list of things to do. Dr. Ivan is married to his career now, and his professional success is taking him places he’s never been before. But even the glow of accomplishment can’t heal his devastated heart. Determined to recover, to move forward at any cost, he now finds moments of respite in distractions that leave him emotionally bankrupt. He’s empty, a shadow of his former vibrant, life-loving self. On the outside, he may seem to be the man he always was. But inside, a terrible desire threatens to rip him apart and ruin him forever.
Meanwhile Jaden is haunted by the memory of the moment she saw the light wither and die in Ivan’s eyes. She knows it died at her hand. After months of trying to explain herself, of begging for mercy, she takes herself back to Miami, back into Ivan’s path, for one last chance at redemption. Can she entice him back into her arms? Convince him to give her a second chance? She’s determined to do whatever it takes to find forgiveness—even if all that’s left is forgiving herself.
In this final book of The Winemaker’s Feast Trilogy, The Winemaker’s Dinner: Dessert, author Dr. Ivan Rusilko is writing solo, drawing freely on his own life and love experiences to craft a heartbreaking and wildly erotic tale about lost hope, desperation, contrition, and—if it’s possible—the quest for a perfect ending to a real-life love story. True to its title, Dessert serves readers an indulgent, decadent last course, rich with twists, turns, and tantalizing truths.
Love is beautiful, guys like this really do exist, and the power of real romance is something we can all believe in.
WOW! So I recently just discovered this series and I'm so glad that I did! I was lucky to have all 3 books right at my disposal and not have to wait and It was interesting to get a man's propective on heartbreak and love....I absolutely loved it! 4.5 stars
"Dessert" is the continuation of Ivan and Jaden's story. Jaden had walked away from Ivan 6 months earlier when Ivan was preparing to propose and you could just feel Ivan's pain in the early chapters as you were reading this story.....it just tore at my heart! I really felt for both characters as I continued reading. Assuming things and lack of communication only created more relationship turmoil for both Ivan and Jaden as they try to work things out. So when they reach a crossroads in their relationship, they both have to decide if their love is worth the fight and if they can move forward and forgive and forget the past and give their love a second chance.
The entire series is a must read for you hopeless romantics out there that love to experience a beautiful, gut-wrenching love story, the series just kept getting better and better!
