WHOA!!! This book was so anxiety ridden from the beginning. I knew that Jax was the wrong brother from the snippet, but man was I nervous for Gia. And poor Jax and Kasey. The misinformation that Gia had an impact on so many lives. Once the mistaken identity is sorted out, Brody is so glad to see Gia again and falls instantly in love with little Lexi. As did I! Lexi is pretty awesome. So many times authors write kids into their stories and the reader has to wonder if said author has ever been aro ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Gianna by Jennifer Hanks is book Three in The Dimarco series. This is the story of Gianna Taylor and Brody Dimarco. I have read the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Gia and Brody meet and had a quick sexual encounter in Vegas about two years ago. Not even knowing each others names and Gia slipped away the next morning before Brody awoke. Gia did learn the name of the man she thought he was so when she had saved enough money she came to New Hope t

The highest praise I can give to a book is the fact that I could not put it down. I would rush through my daily tasks so I could rush back and see where this story was taking me. I thought Brody and Gia's story was sweet and I loved their dynamic together. The steamy scenes were HOT!!! This is definitely an author I will continue to follow. The interweaving of the rest of the dimarco clan through the story makes me very excited to see where the next story goes.

The start of this book wasn’t exactly my cup of tea and I was worried I was going down a somewhat dark rabbit hole, (view spoiler), luckily once Gia makes her way to find Lexi’s dad – one of the Dimarco brothers (view spoiler) and let him know he is a dad, things improve. This book is quite an angsty read from the g

I've really enjoyed the Dimarco Series by Jennifer Hanks. I like a good dose of suspense in my romance novels and Hanks always delivers. Like Lucy (book 1) and Syndey (book 2), Gianna has a man in her past who isn't done with haunting her.

Hanks uses Gianna's arrival at Jax and Kasey's daughter's birthday party to weave an intense storyline in that added depth to the book. Not only must Gia and Brody find their way, but Jax and Kasey have a lot to deal with to.

Gia almost made an ill-advised deal

Book 3. After the epilogue in 'Sydney' of course there was a bit of a cliffy. Did Jax have a child with the young woman crashing his daughter Mia's third birthday? Gianna rang the bell at the Dimarco family home to find the father of her young daughter, the result of a one night stand in Vegas 2 years before.

We soon find it is not Jax' child (not much of a spoiler so I will put it here) but Brody's and soon the couple feels the same fire as they once did in Vegas. But Sydney has some troubles (

This is my favorite so far in the Dimarco Series!

I loved Gia and Brody!

Jennifer Hanks is definitely upping her game and giving her readers a book they won’t want to put down.

4.5 Stars
Spoilers ahead, 1.5* rounded up because of Lexie

The beginning of this book read like a soap opera, from Gia's parents being porn stars to his death and her mom's suicide because she couldn't live without him. Then Gia's financial difficulties because of her parents and her drunken ONS that ended with her pregnant.....whew

Gianna is the third book in the DiMarco series by Jennifer Hanks. This is the book that begins with the epilogue of Sydney,  although reading Sydney first is not required to read this book. Gianna had a one night stand at the hotel where she works as a housekeeper. The daughter of porn stars, Gianna hated that life and rebelled by living rather conservatively, with the exception of one night of loneliness on the anniversary of her parents' deaths. Names are never exchanged, but Gianna has her fr ...more

Sigh. I swear this series just gets better and better as it goes! I absolutely adore Brody and Gianna. Their story is filled with so much romance and suspense, I didn’t want to put it down. I love that this series is so connected so we get to see all the characters in each of the books. It is great to see what is going on with the couples from the past books as well as build the anticipation for the books yet to come.

This book had the most suspense of the series so far in my opinion. F

WHAT?!? This book made me scream this more than once. Gianna is a mixture between the first two books with the feel of it. There was action and mystery, but it was also more of a feel good romance. I enjoyed it, but Sydney is still my favorite.

The plot of this book was captivating. What happens when your one night stand turns into an Oops I'm pregnant? Furthermore, you don't even know that mans name? Yeah, this book does that. I really enjoyed that about this book. I also enjoyed Gianna. While s

My favorite book so far in my binge read of this series.
Brock is part of that large, wild, and crazy Dimarco clan. Ugh I love them all. His backstory is that he is dealing with some PTSD issues since he has returned home after serving as a SEAL. He is also part of his brother’s’ PI business.

Gia is my girl. I LOVE her. The beginning of this story and her narrative on her self worth got to me. The death of her belief in HEA due to upbringing had me fluctuating between PO’d and tearful. It is bea

Definitely the best of the series so far!!!!!! What I though was lacking in the prior bio delivers here 10 fold!! Tons of family time!!!

Not to mention how freaking cute it was every time Lexie said, “Daddy”!!!! And then Unky and Tee!! So freakin cute and added to the story as humor!!! Loved it!

Yes there were times I got ticked off by Gia but for the most part I loved her! And Brody talked so much I loved how he never doubted his feelings and went in at 100%!!

I am hooked on this series! This is book three of The DiMarco series. Each story has characters that have their own insecurities as well as their own strengths. Then there are the side characters. You get a peek at these people and want to see them get their HEA. Each story is a mix is romance, steamy sex, suspense/conflict, and happy-ever-afters.
In this book, you somewhat get a two-for-one story that has rolled over from Sydney (Book 2).

This series just keeps getting better....
I thought Cam was my favorite, but I have moved on to Brody...

Gia and Brody have a one night stand in Vegas during Jax's bachelor weekend. A misunderstanding has her believing her daughter's father is Jax when in fact it was Brody.
Brody falls in love at first sight with his daughter, Lexi. He has very story feeling for Gia, but doesn't feel he can ever be with her (or any other woman thanks to his PTSD).

This is a sweet love story with some action thrown i

Book three is not a disappointment at all. Here we meet Gianna or Gia a one night stand to Brody in Vegas. But when she comes to find the father of her child, she mixes up the brother's names and the family has a rift to deal with that isn't easy for a man who values trust above all else. Brody has been the quiet, almost always in the background through the first few books, so it's nice to hear his voice finally. And he immediately takes to fatherhood no questions asked, and he works to win Gia ...more

A baby surprise

Gianna met a man 2 years ago that made her feel something no one else has. Now that shes a mom shs knows she has to do what right and le the father know.

Going to New Hope and experiencing the Dimarco family is not for the faint of heart. Gia must learn to deal with having everyone in her business and they are doing it with the best intentions.

Brody is the quiet one who everyone knows is moody. But Gia brings light to his life and with Lexi he knows they are his girls forever no

Absolutely loved this! Brody Dimarco is the strong silent broody brother in the family, but that just means that they have more emotions than they know what to do with it. This man is absolutely fantastic and when he finds out he has a daughter, although shocked, he absolutely wants to be in her and her mother's life. But it isn't always that easy is it? Read this book, I HIGHLY recommend it!!

PS: I received this book as an ARC but am voluntarily reviewing it.

This is Brock and Gianna’s story. Gianna is one strong woman and determined to protect her daughter and love her with all her heart everything Gianna has no clue about. Brock has demons and is afraid of hurting who he loves but is determined himself to never let go. Amazing book had me on the edge every page and heartbreaking at times but loved it! 5/5 stars

When Gianna has a one night stand in Vegas she was sent expecting the aftermath....... her daughter Lexi! A couple of years later she decides that her daughter needs to know her father, but is not prepared for the reaction she herself still feels when she meets Brady....... can they have a relationship in spite of Brady's problems?

Another great book in the Dimarco family series.....I love all of that family and am looking forward to the stories of the other brothers

I think this one might be the favorite in the DiMarco family series! We missed seeing the family in Sydney and Cam’s book, so it was great getting them back in the fold. This is technically a standalone, but you do see Gianna for the first time in the epilogue of ‘Sydney.’ I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book after reading that epilogue! It did not disappoint. Loved Lexi so much! And you really see a different side to Brody than in previous books. Really great story overall. Can’t wait t ...more
