True Colours by Elly Redding
Release Date: 25th November 2016
Publisher: Silverwood Books
Genres: Contemporary Romance


Could you ever trust again – the man who broke your heart?
Kate Fenton thought she’d got the answer to that question all neatly sewn up.  Ever since she went to Saul Preston’s London art gallery, a month before their wedding, and found him with his assistant – who looked as if she was in the middle of a game of strip poker.
Now, three years later, she’s no longer so sure.  Saul’s back in her life with a new proposition – accompany him on a trip to Majorca as his interpreter.  It’s an offer Kate can’t refuse, even though she knows she should.  Successful and rich, he’s just the sort of client her translation company is trying to attract – even if he is her two-timing ex!
Saul’s never gone in for second chances.  He’s never had the time, but he knows exactly what he’s doing when he suggests the trip to Kate.  As gorgeous and infuriatingly easy to fall for as ever, he’s determined to rekindle their past.  And he’s only got 3 days to do it…
 
‘True Colours’ – Winner of The Festival of Romance’s New Talent Award 2014
From award-winning author Elly Redding comes a fresh, effervescent, passionate romance that reunites Kate, a London career girl, with Saul, her seriously successful, rich and gorgeous, ex-fiancĂ©.  He’s already broken her heart once, so maybe accepting his business proposition isn’t such a good idea.  But sometimes decisions just aren’t that easy.  As the chemistry between them bubbles with renewed vigour, Kate is sorely tempted.  Can a leopard really change its spots – or is she just deceiving herself, with the man who broke her heart?
“A wonderfully warm romance, with lots of emotion and passion, and a generous sprinkling of delicious wit.  I loved this story!” – Joanne Walsh, author

EXTRACT
“Go away,” she shouted frantically reassessing her options.
“I don’t really think you’re in a position to make demands, do you, trapped as you are?  Unless, of course, you’re thinking of taking up abseiling.  In which case, may I advise restraint?  You’re on the fourth floor.  You’re afraid of heights and I’m not standing in the right place to catch you.”
Good.  It would ruin the whole point of the exercise if he was.  She didn’t tell him that though.  Instead she suggested he make an appointment, that if he wanted to see her, he should do what everyone else did.
“But I’m not everyone else, am I?  I’m the guy who’s still considering suing you for breach of contract.”
“Contract - what contract?”
“Your promise to marry me.”
“You bastard.”   It was the first thing she could think of to say, but she thought it summed up the situation perfectly.  “In which case, may I suggest you contact my lawyer?  I think you’ll find I’ve a very strong case for a counter claim.  Or has something conveniently slipped your memory?  Let me give you a clue.  She had an amazing pair of breasts.”



From the word go I loved the sound of this book. I'm always intrigued by stories that involve couples who have split but can't deny that there is a flame still burning between them. True Colours was one such book. 

Kate and Saul used to be engaged until Kate found Saul in a compromising position that involved another woman and a pack of cards! It didn't look good and Kate was not prepared to listen to any explanations. Fast forward 3 years and Kate has done her best to erase Saul out of her life. Unfortunately she's never been able to erase her feelings for him from her heart. A mixture of confused feelings that are messing with her head and her heart. Saul however makes an appearance in her life once more and neither can deny that the attraction is still there. But which one of them is prepared to admit that mistakes were made? Who will bear their true colours? Is there such thing as second chances when hearts have been broken and trust has been lost? Can heartache and bitterness deny love?

This was a great read. The characters were so engaging, ranging from me liking them, loving them, feeling frustrated with them and wanting to bang their  heads together at times. The dialogue was lively, fun, engaging and flowed seamlessly throughout. It was so natural and some of the scenes did leave me laughing out loud. Another recommended read from me!
