3.5 stars

A romance between Emberly, an American attorney and Nico, the Italian tennis star... I was a little afraid at the beginning of the book, as it looked quite descriptive, but I ended up reading it very easily and quite fast. I loved the way it was written.

Leigh Fleming is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Precious Words
My first few pages in, I worried I wasn’t going to like the book as much as the synopsis led me to believe. The reason being is because I felt like there was a lot of “telling” versus “showing” happening, and that can cause a big disconnect when trying to read. But I ended up really enjoying the plot, and it was quite suspenseful all the way through and the ending was really quite shocking. I felt at times the writing slipped a l

Loved this romance. Has interesting characters, great plot, some mystery, and lots of suspense. It takes you all over the world, and keeps you interested all the way through. Had a hard time putting it down. Great writing Leigh Fleming! Going on to number two book now.
