I really liked the fact that the characters' emotional problems aren't solved by their love for each other. In fact, they have to work them th ...more
Really enjoyed the heck out of this. I enjoy a good re-union story and this one had that in spades, loads of anger but beneath it all love and those three words don't come at the end and a hero who fights and grovels for the heroine. And a heroine with trust issues. Really enjoyable.
And guess what the hero and heroine are celibate and actually respect their marriage vows.
Not going to rate it as it's not my wheelhouse as I don't care for real life angst in my romances except for a few occasions. However the fact that I have read this at least two times tells me something.
This is definitely It's me not you.
I loved the story of Once a Ferrara Wife and would have given it a 5 star review except for one thing that really irritated me (more about this later on).
This is a very intense, compelling and emotional story about Cristiano and Laurel Ferrara and I was captivated from the moment I started page 1 and I was so engrossed in the story that before I realized I had finished the book in one reading.

I had no idea I was so terrifying.
Long story short, she offers me a free copy of the book to show she was only kidding, and I happily accepted. Good thing too, as it was a great source of vitamins A(ngst) and D(rama), and I like to stay hea ...more
The hero was your typically HP alpha male who has been the head of his family for many years since the death of his father. He meets the heroine when she is hired by his younger brother to be his personal trainer. Our H falls for her like a ton of bricks and the feelings were returned.
The heroine never had a home and spent her life in foster care ...more
This was all about a marriage that fell apart due to faults on both sides and much of the angst is centered around miscarriage and fertility.
I felt the heroine contributed the most to the demise by refusing to communicate. Her past explained it, but I still found her frus ...more
Anyway, that limo is for her, she realises. And it’s a good thing that this is actually the case, because how embarrassing if she’d got ...more
He turned his head too and his eyes fixed on hers.
Both should have looked away but neither of them did.
The inevitability of it was as sweet and sharp as the desire that stabbed through her body.
Laurel Ferrara is going back to the one place in the world she has no desire to be – Sicily. And she is going to see the one person in the world she has no desire to see – her husband. Two years ago, after a devastating miscarriage, Laurel wal ...more
Whew, this one sucked me in from the very first page. At first I thought Laurel was a bit of a butthead walking away from the marriage the way she did, when he husband was clearly in over his head in love with her, but as their history unfolded the truth behind why she left became very clear. Even though Cristiano's actions caused Laurel to walk away, he seriously had no clue why she did it. Once Laurel's devastating experience and her heartbreaking past were revealed, I wanted to cry for her. T ...more

What I didn't like as much was Laurel's passive-aggressive behavior. I felt she needed to take some responsibility for the breakdown of their marriage as well. She left Cristiano without talking with him first, never sharing what s ...more
