Theo is a wealthy Greek who has traveled to Brazil with an agenda; he is going to ruin the man responsible for his kidnapping some twelve years earlier when he was a teenager. His kidnapper is a powerful man in Rio and he has a beautiful daughter who gets tangled in Theo's revenge plans.
Inez is a young woman, twenty four who is best described as confusing. She is beautiful, educated at Swiss boarding schools until she was eighteen but for the last six years has only attended one semester of university. She quit at her father's urging. Inez hates she is under her father's thumb but pretty much does everything he wants, which is to lure rich men to give to his political campaign. Inez wants his approval even though she has been treated as his puppet. She helps out in a community center which is a recent endeavor. I wondered what she had been doing with the last six years of her life. She seemed to have no personality.
Theo decided Inez will become his mistress for the next three months and he intends to use her to undermine her dad's political campaign. It works in that she is seen out with Theo at night making out or clubbing (I did not realize that Brazilians would be so outraged by an adult doing this but apparently they are). Theo is arrogant, controlling and possessive; he hated Inez wearing booty shorts to clubs. (Inez loves her booty shorts apparently). Inez is a willing participant because again she wants to protect her father, her daddy issues are almost depressing.
This book does not really become interesting until the last third and that's because the characters finally become open and real with each other, before that they bicker quite a bit. When Theo reveals his past it is a relief both to the reader and Inez who shows a strong, unrehearsed response. It is easily the best scene in the book and it is very well written. After secrets are revealed, Inez becomes a much more interesting heroine and she becomes an admirable one. She goes from being a rather nondescript jet setter to a woman of substance. Whereas she was just an uniteresting character she now longs to be a healer. Theo is still imperious but he is gentler and more thoughtful. If there had been this much emotion and honesty (it brought the heroine to life) throughout the entire book I would have been rooting for this couple from the beginning instead of only the last third of the book.
