Author: Ella Fox
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 3, 2017
Done.Finished. Kaput. Whatever you want to call it, the bride-to-be won’t be at the church on time. Walking away from her fiancé was the hardest thing Ava has ever done. After all, the sexy and charming Mateo is everything she's ever wanted—and more. But she needs to protect herself—and her heart—before it’s shattered once and for all. Mateo has no choice but to let her go. His woman needs space, and he loves her enough to give it to her—no matter how much he hates it. The only thing keeping him sane is the certainty that their separation will be short-lived. Ava thinks it’s over, but she’s about to find out that Mateo will stop at nothing to turn her “I Don’t” into an “I Do.”
SO GOOD!!!! This was my first book by Ella Fox, but it won't be my last! In fact, I haveThe Complete Renegade Saints Series on my Kindle and I will be reading as soon as I have room on my TBR list! 9% in to the book I was head over heels over Mateo - I'm convinced that my true soul mate is a Latin Billionaire, with a sweet caveman mentality, undying loyalty, and Alpha tendencies. The way Ella told the story, starting from Ava's POV in the present, then going back and forth in her POV from present to past, and then sharing Mateo's POV - was GENIUS! It created the perfect amount of tension and really made the book a true page turner that I really didn't want to put down. In fact, I would've completed it in one sitting, had I not lost my battle with my sleeping aid (I literally fell asleep while reading, with my Kindle pressed firmly against my cheek).
The love story was so good, so all-encompassing, so sweet, and swoon worthy - I didn't want Mateo and Ava's story to end. The whole book was so well thought out and the plot so full and complete; it has been a long time since I have been this thoroughly impressed by an author's ability (and not just the entertainment value of a book) - but this book and Ella Fox have definitely earned my awe. I'm so happy that this is merely the beginning of the series, as I simply can not get enough of the Cruz brothers! I can't wait to read Alejandro's story when I Want comes out! I give this 5 full to the brim wine glasses and if I could give it more I would. I Don't has most definitely joined the ranks of my Best Reads of 2017!
“I ADORED every single second of this book.” ~Between The Bookends
“In true Ella Fox style I Don't is fan-freaking-tasting! It is intriguing, sexy and has a wonderful story.” ~Reader Review
“I Don’t is a steamy, suspenseful read.” ~Three Chicks
“It's Mr. Gretchen isn't it?” “Um, no,” Ben answered, “This is most definitely not Mr. Gretchen.” “Okayyy,” I drawled. “You’re acting weird, so I have to assume it’s someone unusual. Is it the President? George Clooney? Oh, wait. I know. It’s Channing Tatum. If I’ve told him once, I’ve told him a dozen times not to call me at work—" “Not even close. This man—he says he’s your fiancé.” My heart stopped beating for several seconds. When it started up again, I assured myself I was asleep. Yep, that had to be it. I was having a nightmare. With my free hand, I pinched my thigh, wincing at the twinge of pain. Dammit, I was awake. No, no, no, I chanted inwardly as I started to panic. I was nowhere near ready to deal with him. Surely he wouldn’t have tracked me down at work. With me gone, he should be living the bachelor life to the fullest, so busy dealing with his social calendar that thinking of me was impossible. I prayed that there was some kind of mistake or that whoever was on the phone wasn’t him. Maybe it was someone calling for another Ava. That could happen, right? “His voice,” I whispered. “Does he sound—” “Spanish?” Ben supplied. “Yeah.” I’d been about to ask if he sounded like a stubborn son-of-a-bitch, but Spanish told me what I needed to know.
