Moti ebook edit


Meet Moti Ferreira—spectacularly jinxed from the day she’s born.

Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom—the best man at her cousin’s upcoming wedding.

All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.

The only obstacle Moti doesn’t see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she’s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex’s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.

Now Moti’s truth is exposed, and worse, she’s hooked on more than Alex's midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she’s ever done…

Excerpt:

It was as if the Greek gods had orchestrated a cosmic game, put me in the center of it, and placed bets on what I would do.
This is who you’re supposed to be with,said Zeus and Hera, holding up a marble bust of Nikos. These two head honchos of Greek mythology threw their son off the top of Mount Olympus because they didn’t like the way he looked. You didn’t want to incur their wrath.
Aphrodite, Goddess of love, clapped her hands.Ah, but what you really wantto do right now is kiss Alex, don’t you? You really have to watch this gal pal. It was her husband who’d been thrown off Mount Olympus, so if it’s happily-ever-after that you’re gunning for, proceed with caution.
Always listen to your mother, Hestia piped in. She was the goddess of family and domesticity. She deserved a lot of kudos. Not many of the gods practiced what they preached, but Hestia stuck to her guns, and probably listened to her mother. Hence, she remained a virgin.
Dionysus, the Greek deity of wine and ecstasy, raised his glass. Pffft. Eat, kiss, and be merry! Pirates once seized him, thinking he was too incapacitated to fight back. Dionysus filled their ship with vines and turned them into dolphins. Moral of the story? Don’t mess with a Greek god even when he’s drunk. Also, he gave the kind of advice you could really get on board with.

Leylah Attar is one of my favorite authors, so I always look forward to her next release. We had to wait two years this time, but I'd pick quality over quantity any time. I am more used to her dark or emotional reads, so I was excited to see how she would do with a more light and fun book. I have to say that she did a great job with this ultimate summer read. This book was fun, original, intriguing, and romantic. I was smiling from start til finish, and couldn't believe all the things that the main character Moti had to go through. Her family is crazy and quirky, and I loved it. The setting of the book was beautiful, and Leylah has convinced me to visit Greece in the future. One of my favorite moments in this book was when Moti and Alex first met, it was unconventional and I loved that. Alex was so swoon-worthy. Come on who wouldn't want a hot guy who has a great sense of humor and can cook? Moti thought she had it all figured out when she set her mind on seducing Nikos, but she wasn't ready for Alex coming in and sweeping her of her feet.

Moti on the Water is the ideal summer read that will have you smiling and laughing out loud. It was also heartwarming, sweet and sexy. This isn't just a romance novel, it is also a book about family and how you always have each other's backs when needed. Moti's character development was amazing, she really transformed and I loved that I was able to witness that. I do want to mention that I absolutely loved the farewell dinner scene, it was so awesome and one of my favorite in the book. So many secrets were unleashed during that scene that I just couldn't keep up, and it was hilarious. I recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a more fun and light contemporary romance. I enjoyed this book a lot and I really hope that Leylah Attar will write more books like this one.
