3.5 "two bloody fast for emotional development" stars

Just like i have gave a hint in my title rating, this was way too fast for me to make any connection with the characters which is actually quite absurd cause this is the third part of the series...

i had the chance to meet and get to know the characters and yet they felt like total strangers...

Events seemed like they were randomly tossed in there just to keep the pages turning.

Unfortunately, the whole reading experience felt like a void in lack

Kathryn Taylor takes us on a journey to Italy in this book. Sophie is in Rome when she "bumps" into Matteo, and lets just say that sparks fly. There is an instant attraction between the two but it takes a while for anything to happen, I was happy about this when I found out the reason behind it.
We are left with a cliffhanger and there are soooo many unanswered questions that I have and I really hope they are answered in the next book in the series, Surrendered.

Sophie is in Rome where she “accidentally” met Matteo. She’s 25-year old art dealer from London and run their family business which is an auction house. Matteo is an Art History professor, came from a rich well-known family and opposed that Signore Giacomo asked Sophie to appraise his art collection.

I love Sophie and Matteo’s chemistry. They suits to each other. I like how they argue and give their opinions. Their banter are impressive because both are argumentative and they are humorous. Sophie

Having read the series of Colours of Love books last year, Unbound, Uncovered and Unleashed I was so delighted to see Seduced was being published and what a brilliant addition it makes.
Sophie Conroy certainly knows her way around fine art having been part of the U.K. family business all her life, but as far as love goes it has never really happened.  Well things were about to change for Sophie with a business trip to one of the most romantic cities in the world, Rome, even if she has only ever a

This book is brilliant, hot and steamy!!! I could not put it down. Sophie is a fine arts dealer, she is visiting Rome to assess some art work. There, she meets handsome, enigmatic and mysterious Matteo who is an Italian art professor. The attraction between them is instant, like sparks of electricity. Together Sophie and Matteo reach new heights of pleasure as their desire for each other ignites. This book is beautifully written. I can't wait for the next instalment in Sophie and Matteo's story, ...more

Jonathan and Grace are finally married in book 3 and we get a view into how things have changed now that they are married. The real question is can Jonathan handle the new "take no mess from anyone" Grace...or will her newly found inner strength ruin everything that she has ever wanted? Read and find out!

I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review

Romanticamente Fantasy
Quando ho iniziato a leggere ‘Sguardi I colori dell’amore’, sinceramente non credevo che mi catturasse come poi invece è successo, trattandosi del terzo libro di una serie, ho sempre paura che l’autrice per tirarla lunga, faccia qua è là, un copia e incolla dei romanzi precedenti. Anche se qualche scopiazzamento non manca, è un libro che ha catturato la mia attenzione. Lo stile narrativo dell’autrice è sempre stato e rimane, molto accattivante e coinvolgente.

Sophie è una ragazza concentrata sulle sue responsabilità: una madre problematica, un padre che si affida a lei per il lavoro ed enormi aspettative da parte di tutti. Si concede solo un piacere nella sua vita, quello che deriva dal lavoro con suo padre, la gestione di una casa d’aste, cioè l’arte.

Příběh jsem si zamilovala v momentě, kdy se zmínilo první umělecké dílo a jeden zatraceně sexy odborník na umění. Není v tom nic světoborného ani závratného, ale bavilo mě to. A to tak, že hodně.

Ne...tohle vážně nebylo dobrý.
Dočteno do poloviny, kdy mi vlastně absolutně unikal děj celé knihy.
Přílišná podobnost s Gabrielovým Infernem, jen bez Danta Alighieriho. Plytká romantika beze smyslu.

Quand j'ai commencé ma lecture, j'ai été surprise de ne pas avoir affaire avec Grace et Jonathan (les personnages des deux tomes précédents). Dans cette histoire, nous parlerons de Sophie et Matteo. Sur le coup, je me suis dis euh ... est-ce que j'ai la bonne suite ? Et effectivement il s'agit bien de la même série, mais avec l'apparition de nouveaux personnages, j'avoue avoir été un peu perdue au début, et j'ai donc reposé le livre à plusieurs reprises. Avant d'être complètement plongée dedans. ...more

Erst einmal war ich irritiert, da es sich um ein völlig anderes Paar handelt und das Buch doch als 3. Teil der „Colours of Love“ Reihe behandelt wird. Was soll das? Ich dachte, dass das Pärchen aus den ersten beiden Bänden dann wenigstens entfernt hier noch einmal auftaucht. Dies passiert allerdings nicht.

I never ever knew that this series would suck me in like it has. I love the dynamic between Grace and Jonathan in this one and also we get a little catch up at the beginning since it takes place after a year of marriage we find ourselves with a surprise that may have you saying oh no! I did! But I am soo happy with the turnout and couldn't have asked for a better ending. I really do recommend this book and be prepared to be sucked in as a whole and taken f

This 3rd book in the series seemed pretty silly to me. Almost nothing about the story seemed genuine other than the relationship between Grace and Jonathan's sister. The secondary story of what was going on in the business was the silliest part.
Thanks to NetGalley for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.

Vlastně to bylo vážně fajn, kdyby to nebylo v němčině, pustím se do druhýho dílu hned (proč dva díly? ale furt si autorka šplhá tím, že série maj pokračování po dvou dílech).
Líbil se mi i první "dvoudíl", kdy to bylo klišé dnešní doby, ale nenásilné, tady je to zas trochu jinak, ale přitom stejné, což je zajímavé.

Had to find out what direction this series would go in. I liked the way the characters finally felt more developed. I liked this book much better than the 1st 2. this book kept me engaged more.

*Arc provided by Netgalley for honest review*
Autorka vůbec nepřichází z ničím novým, vlastně je to jedno velké, nepřeslazené žánrovité klišé, ale přitom napsané tak sympaticky, že mě to baví. Matteo u mě ke konci těžce klesl, na posledních řádcích to ale napravil, takže se těším na pokračování.

Tak jo. Tenhle díl mě snad naštval ještě víc než první díl této série. Ten chlap se zdá tak nepolapitelnej. Skončilo to docela hodně otevřeně, takže potřebuju zjistit, kdy vyjde poslední díl. Věřím, že ten bude dost zajímavej.
Nach den ersten beiden "Colours of Love" Büchern, erleben wir jetzt die Geschichte von Sophie. Wieder gefällt mir die Geschichte sehr gut! Es hätte etwas mehr in die Tiefe können, gern mehr über Rom und die anderen Personen. Ich freu mich auf Band 2, der in den nächsten Tagen erscheinen wird. ...more
