Welcome The Winemaker's Dinner Dessert Blog Tour
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.
"A curl at the corner of his mouth confirmed what her eyes were saying. They were both in for one hell of a ride." excerpt from The Winemakers Dinner...Desserts.
And what a long, strange trip it's been! I was so excited to finally get my Dessert...and it was everything I had hoped it would be. Dear Doctor, you have brought this full circle...this was such a great expression of your life, your love, your excitement...your "freak" (a part of Ivan we had not met before). Reading Desserts is written in such a way that one could almost hear Ivan reciting it to his readers....his fans....his friends! You could feel his pain, his lust, his love, his uncertainty....."She'd lost his trust, and all the privileges that came with it because she'd been chasing what she thought was her dream..." resulting in a heartbreaking tail of love lost....hoping for love rekindled..but neither trusting their instincts...and he certainly couldn't trust her with his heart again...right?
As in the previous books in this trilogy, assumptions were made and lack of communication created increased stress levels for both Ivan and Jaden. In addition, in the previous books, many readers grew to really dislike Jaden...in Desserts, we are introduced to another side of her...still unsure, but a good deal of that is based on the mistake she made in Entree, but willing to take a chance on love....if she can get him to at least talk to her.
The Winemakers Dinner Desserts is an emotional roller coaster you do not want to miss! And when you come to the final words...."because you happened" .... you will be reminded of Ivan's favorite quote..."Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened!"
