This is one hero that I could easily fall for, what a guy, so caring and thoughtful even when he has things from his past that push him and the heroine oh my she had never known any love so thinking about giving love to anyone is so hard for her, I did very much enjoy this story from page one, I hope you love Matteo and Ruby as much as I did.

Ruby is a ballet dancer, ballet has been her whole life since she was a child left at the ballet school at the age of eleven by her mother, she never knew h

Disclaimer - I skipped or fast forwarded many pages and chapters. The story is that of a beautiful dancer and a rugby player turned banker who have a one night stand. Despite using condom, they fall pregnant. The H is in the middle of a merger with a conservative Italian banker to thwart his rival who used to be friends with his dad but had betrayed him.
The h has no self confidence, no conversation, no self respect and the H writes dairies, conversations with himself, plans the life together wi

I like books with childhood- or family-baggage. I like them when the hero and/or the heroine can stand up to their ghosts and become stronger.

I didn't get the feeling that either our hero or heroine had the 'backbone' to face their baggage and rise about it. I didn't really warm up to either Matteo or Ruby so that may be why I didn't trust their HEA would truly happen.

I also felt the issue with Matteo's father and the father's friend was a throw-in mini plot twist, it didn't add anything substa
