Tess Richardson is from a family that’s all about the law. She follows the rules, and works hard for everything she has. When she gets accepted to junior year abroad and an internship at an International shipping company, she knows that doing things the right way has paid off. Then she meets Nico Stephanos and all the rules fly out the window.
Nico has always been the golden boy. Handsome, smart, and the son of a Greek billionaire, he gets what he wants, when he wants it. With a father as rich and powerful as his, he’s got the world by the balls—until the day the woman he’s falling for becomes his family’s greatest enemy. Now Nico is faced with a choice—the life he knows, or the girl he thinks he loves.
Speaking Greek was a fun and quick read for me. This story is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Nico and Tess. Tess finds herself in Greece to not only study abroad, but is also an intern at an international shipping company. Being in a country where you don’t speak the language would be challenging to anyone, but Tess is up for the challenge. What Tess didn’t plan on was Nico. You see, Tess is a very straight forward, by the book, doesn’t break any rules type. But, Nico makes her question everything that she knows and makes her want to just live her life for once and break some rules! Nico has always been viewed as perfection. He is the golden child. He gets whatever he wants, when he wants it. And his new intern Tess, may prove to be his greatest challenge yet….
Overall, I really enjoyed Speaking Greek. It was a quick and easy read for me. I enjoyed the idea of the story and I LOVED the setting. It had me wishing that I could escape to a foreign country. I thought the characters were fun and intriguing.I loved the way that Tess challenged Nico. She showed him the beauty in being ordinary. And I loved the way that Nico made Tess see how fun life could be by breaking some of the rules. I did like the element of mystery and danger that surrounded parts of the story. I did however, have a pretty good idea as to what was going on with the story and the direction it was going. That being said, it still was entertaining; seeing how everything worked itself out. So, overall this was an ok read. This is my first read by this author and I would definitely be into checking out more of her books in the future.
