Yes, yes I read the Italian’s Blackmailed Mistress. And yes, I am ashamed.

Enter Sophia, the Blackmailed Mistress, who at 19 is working at one of the family hotels. She’s a beautiful, innocent, and studying to be a linguist. It’s instant attraction on both sides and soon the pair is dating. Max, who has a shred of decency, knows bette

Lady Raven RAVE!
OK i love this book, WARNING though if you like the whole being blackmail concept then this is for you but if you don't like the female to be too controlling by the man then this isn't for you
The plot is base on one big misunderstanding (aren't they all)but the author takes us on a ride with these two characters and she really tease us and gave us some good love scenes that i have read in a while in a harlequin presents book
JB brings love at first sight back to life. She gives hope to her characters and there's no quota on that. It's kinda ballsy of her to place our hero in a rather unique circumstance. She glides on some pure emotions but just scratching the surface. I'm a total sucker for the besotted hero and the highly possessive ones. Not her very best but it's one of the better ones.

4 Stars ~ Hotelier Max was instantly bewitched when Sophia walked into his Sicilian hotel suite. She was the most beautiful creature he'd ever seen. Tall, slim but with delicious curves, and he wanted her. He soon learned from his manager that she was the 19 year old daughter of a friend working her vacation time from university, and definitely hands off. Max was enchanted and couldn't help himself from flirting; not seducing Sophie was nearly his undoing. When Max discovers that he has testicul ...more

Kept me reading and was fun for what it was but h was TSTL. She initially leaves hero because someone tells her he's messing around with his sister (VC Andrews did not co-author). (view spoiler) One of THE top ten stupidest big misunderstandings ever.

I don't know how people gave this book 3 a nd 4 stars......... The H was a jerk without redemtion. She was not treated as a mistress, she was a sex slave and in the end of the book, when she tells him that him and her father could go both go to hell, he comes back and tells he "I love you" and she marries him, just like that..... she even can't wait to take his clothes off............... what a shitty book, she didn't even had a loving family worth sacrficing for, only his brother, but is not l
