It started out so well and I was so hopeful!
*With Spoilers*
A bonafide manhoeing Italian bad boy and an 18 y.o. virgin. He makes no promises while seducing his brother’s sister-in-law on the (his brother and her sister's) wedding day. She finds herself pregnant and loses out on an Ivy League education. (But why could she go to a Calif. University and not Smith’s with the bump was a mystery!) Anyways the sister and the husband adopt the twins and pass them as their own to his family.

The plot was so far-fetched only the writing saved the book

4 Stars! ~ All of the pain from nine years before, is thrust once more at Caroline as she travels to Rome to claim her orphaned niece and nephew. She's braced for a fight with their Italian uncle, Paolo, a man she had given her innocence to, only to be dismissed. But Paolo today is not the callous playboy she'd known, now he is a man with a deep sense of family responsibility. Yet from their first reunion, Paolo is aware there is more grief in Caroline than that of her sister and brother-in-law' ...more

It started off really good. I was addicted from the start. But somehow, as it reached the end, it wasn't really very convincing to me. I dunno, but somehow the part where they quarreled wasn't impactful enough to me. And how they made up felt just too little. Like, there wasn't enough substance. In my mind, Italians are hot :P, arrogant and just not so forgiving. But instead of him really blaming her, he kinda just asked for her forgiveness?

I know I don't make a lot of sense but somehow the cli

Wow...this is my first book by this author and definitely not my last.

This is an incredible love story about second chances in not only love, but life, and that sometimes we are given an incredible gift to fix our past mistakes and ultimately forgive those who have hurt us the most. This author takes you on an incredible journey into the heart and soul of Paolo and Callie where you see all their pain and human frailty.

This is so unlike any HP I have ever read. I was so wrapped up in watching h

Really good story of a couple who met when they were young and immature, reconciled due to circumstances beyond their control when more mature and nine years older (yep that short of time can make a big difference in an arrogant - well to do - butt hat of a hero).

Tear jerker, really well written.

no typos/editing issues either!!!
