Rich and handsome TV chef, Rico Mandretti, plays poker every Friday night in a posh hotel with a few friends. One of them, Renee Selensky, has been driving him crazy for years. Her cool demeanor, her sarcastic barbs, and her apparent non-interest in him---he's never met a woman quite like her. And he's finding himself very attracted to her. It's sort of a love/hate relationship. So one poker night, knowing he's holding a winning hand at cards, after everyone else drops out of the game except Ren ...more
Second bk in the THREE RICH MEN trilogy and my personal favorite of the 3. (I also really liked #1).

This book is told exclusively from Rico's POV or his mother's. There is no POV from Renee. I thought this was a good stylistic choice since Rico was a bit of an asshat in the first bk and almost broke up the couple for good with his interfering. He is a typical macho, possessive Italian male who has it bad for Renee. He has terrible social skills and he would have come across as too unlikable if I
I didn't like Rico much when he appeared in Book 1 of the series. But wouldn't you know, Rico turned out to be a decent guy after all! One with a strong sense of loyalty and family. He also gained major points for being so smitten with Renee.

This was a surprisingly fun romance, most of the entertainment resulted from Renee leading besotted Rico on a merry chase, and from watching Rico deny his true feelings. Rico did lust after Renee but the author did a decent job in showing that he loved her a

I realy enjoyed reading this book though it has every thing I hate in romance novels. H is a year younger than h. Also, she's richer than him. And you can't know what her thoughts are, it's all about Rico.

Sin duda Rico y Renée son la pareja perfecta. Renée no es la típica protagonista llorona, que se deprime por que el hombre que ama la deja (como Bella Swan :P ), ni se arrepiente lo que hace. Es la perfecta protagonista. Podría leer este libro mil veces. Muy recomendable.

Agora sim, é a vez do Rico sofrer.


Ele mereceu e merece sofrer, não só por ser italiano, mas por ser arrogante e babaca.

Mas principalmente por ter pouca fé nas mulheres, ser péssimo julgador de caráter e pela basbaquice de se intrometer no relacionamento do Charles e Dominique.

Renée foi muito experta, o desprezou durante cinco ano. E durante o mês que foi sua amante, usou o mesmo desprezo para conseguir o melhor dele.

4.5* I held my breath trough that poker game,wonderfully written first half of the book,actually it kind of reminded me of those 'marriage bargains'. hero is passionate italian,divorced and self made cooking-show star from big,loving famiglia and heroine is former model,rich man's widow,their mutual attraction takes them jesting and arguing till our hero decides he must have her or he'll go mad! also nice fact that they have kind of history together playing poker weekly etc.must take half of the ...more

Probably a C+; really enjoy Miranda Lee's categories.
Great story and characters, but a little weak on the actual development of the romance. It helped that the secondary characters "knew" about the hero and heroine's feelings for each other, but it was never actually developed.
Utterly refreshing to come across a romance novel where the whole book is written from the hero's POV.
