The third tale in the Layovers series takes us to the Tuscan countryside.

There Élodie Martel’s life keeps getting more and more complicated when a visit to her aunt lands her in the middle of a contested estate and an attraction to the hired help, Vico Fierli, who may or may not be able to help her sort out the problems of the present as well as the betrayals of the past.

🍷Liked the story, surfeit of intimate clinches notwithstanding🌄

👍For me the best parts that made the story enjoyable were:
Irascible 👵Nonna, hero Vico's stroppy grandmother;
🍇The Italian rural setting;
The 📃 will/estate complications subplot; and
Heroine Elodie's can-do spirit, intelligence, business acumen and competence

Although I liked Elodie and Vico together, I felt the ending of the story was just too focused on the 🔥steam. If hot clinches are something you are looking for in a romance, you'll

I loved this book! It’s the first I’ve read from this author but I wasn’t disappointed at all. You can’t beat a bit of steamy romance, El falls for a hot Italian man that turns out to be more than just an instant attraction. It’s a fairly short book which I liked as it didn’t drag on for too long and the characters were great, especially Nonna! I’ll definitely be checking out other books from Saskia. The book is steamy, romantic and has a hea, what more could you want? I read this book as an ARC ...more

This was the first book I’ve read by this author. I loved that she chose a strong heroine. The details seemed thoroughly researched and believable. Their romance was natural. I would have loved to see things through his perspective too. I also didn’t like that I had to google translations so much, but I loved the use of the Italian language. A nice novella.

I received an ARC via Hidden Gems but the opinions are my own.

This was a sexy fun read. It had a fast paced plot with just enough intrigue to keep it going. The sex scenes were hot although not terribly detailed. You really got the sense of place the Italian countryside, the local culture, the history. I absolutely loved that part. Overall I thought A Taste of Temptation was just about as perfect as a novella like this could be.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
