Amnesia obliterates a married couple’s shared past in this poignant second-chance-at-love story.

Matteo Vanni washed up on a Tunisian beach six years ago with no clothes, identity documents, or memories, just a wedding ring to link him to his past. He’s reinvented himself as a wealthy entrepreneur, but now a knock on the head restores some of his memories, particularly that

I enjoyed this story. Adams did a good job of creating a unique story out of the familiar trope of amnesia. It was fun watching Matteo and Bella rediscover one another and at the same time deal with Farrah, Kai, and Cristo. I also appreciated that, in spite of all these other suitors, the story stayed focused on Matteo and Bella--she didn't try to give Farrah, Kai, and Cristo love interests and happy endings (though maybe we'll see some of them in future books?). Also, the accident that triggere ...more

For what will most likely be my final read of 2017, this book ended my year on a high note!

I love when I go into a book thinking it’s going to be one thing, but get a surprise by it being something different. I was expecting Under the Sicilian Sky to be a heartwarming, second-chance love story. What I got instead: humor, mystery, suspense, action, a little bit of angst (just the right amount). This is a story I sat down to read after dinner and finished before going to bed.

Bella was young when s

I enjoyed this story from start to finish!
I loved both of these incredible characters, the setting... and everything in between.
Both M and B are just amazing. I loved the way they felt with one another... even after the years apart.
This story is sad, romantic, sexy, filled with wonderful men, love and suspense!

Another well written book by this Author!!!



4 stars from me.

The story had potential to be nice, easy to read story but I really found it difficult to read. It didn't have much depth and story was just missing a bit more details. It felt quite rushed and a bit too straight forward.

When I read the blurb, I had thought it this book was a romantic suspense. Instead, by the 3rd chapter to about 80% of the book, the story turned into a reverse harem, cat and mouse romance story. Quite disappointing.

Bella was widowed young and left in charge of the family farm. Life definitely hasn't turned out as planned.


Matteo has lived the last 6 years not knowing who he is. Suffering amnesia has him constantly questioning his life. A quick knock to the head and suddenly the memories return leaving more questions in its wake.

This story has a lot of potential but really fell flat for me. The characters were under developed and the story was choppy. By the end there were more questions tha
