Excellent spectacular read,a sorrowful roller coaster love story ,both Cristiano-Kate have their own fears and they need to overcome those fears come together love together n be happy together


Kate Edwards couldn't believe she had spent the most amazing night with the famous Christiano Marseca. They had not just shared passion, they talked about their pasts, something this Italian playboy never did and it was special for both of them. However, thinking about her while racing his car ended in a cr...more

4.5 stars.

The heroine Kate hears that racing driver Cristiano, the hero, is about to return after a long recuperation following a very bad crash a few years back, and she knows that now is the time to tell him that their glorious night together resulted in their son. However when she finally gets the courage to approach him Cristiano doesn't know who she is, so she decides not to bother. Cristiano has no memory of Kate but senses something between them so, desperate to regain parts of his lost...more

I didn’t want this book to end!!!! I have always loved India Grey’s books but “Her Last Night of Innocence” is by far my favorite one. I loved reading about Cristiano Maresco, a famous, gorgeous, rich race car driver and Kate Edwards, a shy virgin who doesn’t believe that she is beautiful and is unable to understand how a man like him could ever even look her way!!!

Their story is filled with pain, sorrow, love and the joy of finding each other’s true soul mates after so many obstacles that faced...more

Kate couldn't believe that happened to her. She was supposed to interview the famous car racer, but they connected. They talked about themselves, something Christiano rarely did, and one thing led to another and they finished in bed. It would've been a happy ending, if Christiano didn't have a car crash on the track next morning that resulted in memory loss. So when Kate couldn't get to him she went home, heartbroken and pregnant.

Kate has had some tragedies in her life. Both her father and her b...more

3.5 stars. My first time to read an HP by India Grey. Very enjoyable, but with a few loose ends and in need of an epilogue. I wanted to know if there were any consequences for the PA who seemingly kept the knowledge of his son from him. His sudden abandonment of his career for his family felt rushed. Will definitely read more from this new-to-me author.

Overall rating -- 3.75 stars

I know it sometimes can spoil the drama, but I usually like to know at least a little of each characters big secret at the beginning, and this book does that very well (she had his secret baby, he has amnesia). Plus, he reveals his secret to her pretty early on, which makes him much less of a jerk.

I liked both of the main characters and well as her friends. Plus, the son is well written. (I really hate it when an author uses "kid speak" when writing a child. A little...more

I've only read a couple of books by this author but haven't had a 'bad' story yet. Will always grab for this author's books just to check out.

It's always good to at least expect a good short from someone for the $5 you will be spending.

India Grey is one of the best newer authors in the Modern series line and her books keep getting better.
Jenny
This started off well, but I couldn't buy into Cristiano and Kate’s relationship. It moved a little slowly at times. The descriptions and internal monologues seem to just drag on and on. This is my 2nd book to read by this author and I have noticed that she has nice ideas plot-wise but the end result is flat and monotonous. The lame sex scenes and the bad epilogue didn't help either.
Tia
I read this under the other title and I did like the novel but I found it sad that it took so much effort to try and tell the hero that he had a son. I mean talk about overkill. It was sad in that aspect.
Rebeca
This book was perfectly entertaining except for the derogatory view of race car driving. I'm not a fan of racing myself, but I don't like when entire professions are dismissed so summarily.

This is one book I wish was longer. I actually liked these characters. A lot.

It was a nice change to read about a race car driver instead of the numerous Greek tycoons. And I love this author's style. She has a good and clear language, her characters are warm and likable, and the plot is actually believable. These characters are "normal" unlike the tycoons who have mountains and mountains of money.

Once I started reading this one, it was impossible to put down the book. If I were a writer, this i...more

Not a bad one, and not quite as dark as some others by India Grey. The premise that everything changed for Cristiano after their first night together wasn't very realistic to me. And really the idea that they were in love with each other in the end isn't very believable either if I think about it, but I was able to suspend disbelief and go with it.

Oh!

The sweet cristian
Oh cristiano
If only the author made alexander cuter than he is now
Well i didn't expect the ending would be he lose one and then gain another
I thought he'd get along with both. Life and racing
Short but such a lovely story
Lisa-Marie
this is my 2nd book to read by this author, i have to say i just dont understand why she has to kill or make so many people ill. i was not even going to give her a 2nd chance and i should have stuck with that. sad story the end was basically happy.
Marina

India Grey was born in England, UK. A self-confessed romance junkie, she was just thirteen years old when she first sent away for the Mills & Boon Writers' Guidelines. She can still recall the thrill of getting the large brown envelope with its distinctive logo through the letterbox, and subsequently whiled away many a dull school-day staring out the window and dreaming of the perfect hero.
