I stopped at 63% because I was disgusted.

Challenging/persuading/forcing/coercing/etc someone to drink who has made a conscious decision not to because her mother died of an alcohol and pill OD demeans and insults victims and survivors of suicide, alcoholism and drug abuse.

Beyond that, the hero isn't alpha. He's obsessed with control. She seems to think it's nice suddenly when before she didn't. Just, POOF! Oh, I understand and so I’ll give up my belief system and have this glass of wine.

Read this for a challenge as they said October is Italian A. Heritage Month. It was OK. I would probably give it a 2 1/2 stars.

The independent Amanda drops everything to go to her brother who has been in a car crash in Italy. Well she learns this through a very abrupt meeting with an Italian man named Nicholas de Frenza. She doesn't recognize the name even though he thinks she should. He wisks her away with very few questions asked. I found this a little unbelievable. She is supposed to be this

Miss Amanda Davies is having a bad day. She is just finished eating lunch when a strange rich Italian man shows up to tell her that her brother has been in an accident in Italy and she now must go there.
Mr. Nicholas de Frenza is a rich guy that is used to having his way, much like Mr. Darcy, we could call it rich person's Darcy-itis, so he is shocked when Amanda doesn't immediately recognize him and follow his instructions. So he semi-kidnaps her and takes her to Italy on his private jet, then t

It is a simplistic story with a sincere heroine, with logical reactions, and a very macho hero who doesn't respect the decisions and ideas of the heroine and does not allow the women in his family to take initiatives and even less decisions. At the same time he is not too overbearing nor dismissive. 2,5 stars. ...more

I downloaded this for free from amazon. It is a DNF, and I would give it negative stars. The heroine's brother is in an auto accident in Italy, and the hero's sister is in the car and is also injured in the same accident. The hero shows up and collects the heroine. It is here that I run into trouble, and was so mad that I quit reading. The heroine never stops to verify the hero's story! She just goes with him. There is no call to make sure that this guy is legit. It has all the hallmarks of a ki ...more

Another great book by Jennifer Blake. She has the right amount of romance and sex appeal to be hot, yet tasteful in a sexy romance book. Amanda is a strong woman, unsure of her sexuality or appeal to the sexy Italian billionaire Nico. Nico is the proud and Italian head of family of the De Frenza Olive Oil Company. The dynamics between the two are great, Amanda does not want to give in, and Nico finds it fascinating that she is unlike most the woman he has dealt with in his life. The fact he can' ...more

This book was slow and not very realistic. Nico was too gruff and weird about his sisters, while Amanda was supposedly strong but too simpering. It wasn't for me. ...more

Amanda Davies is having lunch when Nicholas de Frenza walks into the restaurant and tells her to come with him because he has something private to tell her about her brother. I don’t know too many women that would go to a hotel room with a total stranger. A restaurant booth is private enough!

Nicholas has an I am the man and I’m in charge attitude. He makes decisions for his perfectly capable family members because he cares about them and knows what’s best. Yeah right! I especially didn’

Grab your tissues and get ready to swoon!

Nicholas and Amanda are brought together by the worst of circumstances when her brother and his sister are critically injured in a car accident. Nicholas blames Amanda's brother for the accident, so he believes "a sister for a sister" is the fair response. He sweeps Amanda off her feet - basically kidnaps her, really, but she wants to see her brother, too, so she does consent - but finds that the more he tries to focus on his anger and revenge, the more h

A wonderful story jammed packed with lots of excitement, a bit of the unexpected, action and lots of heated passion, both in and out of the bedroom. As Amanda is eating her lunch at the café/diner not far from work, a man of what appears of means enters. Little did she know just how much the gorgeous man was about to change her life. Nico is on a manhunt, or should he say, womanhunt, as he tracks down the sister of the man he believes responsible for an accident that has almost claimed the life ...more

I’m not sure but I think this might be one of the books published back in the 1980s and re-published again after a few modifications to go with modern reading...except those changes didn’t really work!

Anyway and on a separate note, I had downloaded the audio book listen to it and for some reason the narrator had given the Italian hero and very Dracula like accent, or a Russian mob lord accent instead of the very sexy romantic Italian accent 🤣
This ebook is part of the Jennifer Blake collection I got via bookbub, and each book is very different from the previous ones. I enjoyed this mainly as I enjoy the region of Italy it's mainly set in. It always takes me a while to read these books as they are on my kindle and I only use it when I am travelling or away from home (and even then I usually take real books with me). This was fun and light. ...more

Love this book!!!

If you like to get those warm fuzzy feelings and like to talk to the characters as if they could hear you, this is a good choice for you. I've just completed reading it again and still received those warm fuzzy feelings. Highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good love story.

Cute and sweet

This is a rather tame romance novel, but very sweet.

The overplayed plot of the incredibly sexy, handsome foreign billionaire meets cute but serious American girl is a too predictable for me, although well written.

Readers of contemporary romance fiction might like this one. I just wasn't overly impressed.

Listed as contemporary but this story of American woman whisked off her feet by authoritative Italian billionaire is written in the flowery and frothy language of the old Mills and Boon romances I used to read in my youth. It's a quick read and served its purpose as a lockdown distraction.
Aug 02, 2020 rated it liked it
I grew up reading Mills and Boon romances and this story was a bit of a throw back to the stories of that era. No modern twist on this classic. The female melts into a hopeless puddle at his simple touch and once or twice some of the things he was musing about would be considered sexual assault in this day and age. Not a bad story but just not in keeping with modern sensibilities.

After a car wreck leaves his sister in a coma and Amanda,’s brother severely injured, Count Nicholas travels from cinque terre to atlanta to bring Amanda back to see her brother. I enjoyed the plot but it was way too short to develop the story. The end was rushed and too abrupt and incomplete.

Nothing special but still enjoyable.
Just your typical romance read but still good.
Likeable characters with the obligatory autocratic mediterranean male head of family and a misunderstanding.
Liked that Jonathan was a stand up bloke.

Oh why didn't I just stop reading it when it got so predictable? An acquaintance suggested I read this and now I know not to take her advice on "good books" again.

Quick read

A little ‘Mills n Boonish’, but I still enjoyed the read. A blossoming romance set in Italy, which started on a rocky footing.

“She crooned, twining her legs around his, pressing her forehead to his breastbone. It was all he needed. Easing her backward, supporting her until she lay upon his desk, he pumped into her in aching need while his heart threatened to burst inside and his pulse almost drowned out the praise and the most sacred of promises that he whispered in the language of his fathers. Telling her how hot arguing with her made him, how proud he was of how she stood up to him, he held her gaze while he took her, and even as she coalesced around him again, drawing him into the surging power of her heartbeat, her ultimate pleasure.” 1 likes
