I was given this Beta in exchange for my honest review.

So let's start with I still am loving this series. I can't seem to get enough of these characters.

After help from her mother Airlea is offered a job helping the son of a very wealthy family recover from an auto accident. She accepted thinking he was a child.....boy was she in for a shock. The patient was Dante Cardone, gorgeous and with a bit of an attitude.
Dante was an angry man. Angry that he was injured, angry at his mother for her indiscretions, and angry that his family thought he needed a nurse. That was until he saw Airlea. Although he was a bit of an ass at first he realized that sh

Spoiler Alert

I liked the story line - its different than the typically love story. I liked the characters a lot. Arliea is a strong independent woman. She is a pediatric physical therapist. Her ex-boyfriend gets her fired from her job in Italy. She needs a change so her mother sets her up with a job in Greece working with Dante - a very hot but spoiled man. She takes on the job even though she usually helps children. The first encounter

I liked the first book in this series, but this book got me hooked. I couldn't wait to see how things would unfold and play out.
Airlea is a great character. I loved that she was who she was. She didn't hide it, try to explain it way or try to change herself. You have to respect that.
Denta is a strong man that is dealing with an accident that has him at a disadvantage when the most beautiful woman walks into his life. It doesn't help that the first meeting is him on the floor, naked, and face do

Airlea is wanting a fresh start, her mother jumps in and helps her to get work in greace, caring for the grumpy, moody Dante...
Having being in a serious accident that leaves him bed ridden, he takes his frustration out on Airlea..
He hates that he is so helpless in front of her., in spite of him being horrible to her, she takes it all in her stride..
He can't help but fantasize about this sexy woman..
But then things start to go wrong, Airlea is in serious danger..

Holy cow! Auntie was a hot mess really! Airlea figures out early on that Dante's Aunt is seriously unstable. I was trying to figure out who she killed first but when it said the parents died in a fire I knew she had to be behind it. In the end thanks to Ric's brother in law Ethan, Dante is clued in and she is taken away. The only thing I would like to have known is if Dante made it through the rest of med school. Otherwise it was a really good book and worth the read.

The character's were very likable and the story line was great. I like the twist of the aunt being evil. It was also nice that the book had a ending the could be left as is or could have another written about their lives afterwards. I did not read the first book in this series and I still enjoyed the book although I will now go back and read the first one to get to know the characters a little better.

I received a BETA copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was an enjoyable, romantic, steamy, and fast read. It had a nice blend of romance and a little suspense. I loved that Airlea was strong and wasn't so dainty and damsel in distress like. Dante was moody, and bossy, and a little sweet too, making him oh so hot.

Thanks for the opportunity to BETA read Jill.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Just as good as the first book. The characters were great and really easy to relate to. I would've like some more insight into why a certain person was doing what he/she did during this book and the first one. But other than that it was a good read.

I liked this book. It was very sweet, but also had some some suspense as well. I liked reading about the journey that Dente and Airlea went through. I read the book previous in the series and hoped this one would be just as good, and I wasn't disappointed.

This book was fantastic. The mixture of romance & mystery made this into a wonderful story.
The storyline was brilliant & the mystery running through this book had me glued to this book.
A quick yet enjoyable read that I really do recommend.

Airlea and Dante love story was very nice. She was a physical therapist, he was an arrogant injured businessman. The mix of romance and suspense was very nice. I always suspected of his Aunt, but never thought she was so mad.

The story is good and the bad guy is no mystery just how far she will go and what she will do. It is a quick read that love wins out, of course :)

Another brilliant read

Another brilliant read. This book about Dante and Airlea was just as the first full of suspense, attempted murders, real murders and tempers flying, temperatures rising, lust last but not least Love lol. I loved this book because you knew who was behind everything going wrong but you just have to wait it out to find them being caught. Can’t wait for Ethan’s book next

After Airlea is betrayed by her ex and loses her job she moves to Italy to car for an injured man with very little details about him. The first time she meets him he's naked and all she notices is his nice tight butt! As Airles settles into her new job there is danger lurking in the shadows as someone is intent on killing her. Even though we know very early on who it is there is still some suspense in waiting to see how it all unfolds. I enjoyed this, a nice easy read........oh lets not forget i ...more

I don't know what missed from this book, but I just didn't get the emotion, it's just so-so. I thought this book will be as good as Adam's Fall by Sandra Brown, because the theme of the story is the same. But I'm a little bit disappointed by this book. The chemistry between Airlea & Dante is a little bit tasteless. The suspense is more acceptable than the romance. I didn't feel the sparkling between them, just the sexuality from their relationship. Too pity because I like these type of stori ...more
