Lina can’t believe Antonio is back in town, right before her wedding. Being around him again resurrects long-buried feelings. Will she be able to resist temptation in the form of a dark-haired Italian Marine, the same man who once broke her heart?
“She was a woman in the twenty-first century with a degree. She didn’t need a damn man to mess with her head.”
“When she saw Antonio wearing a black suit, leaning over a guardrail looking out to the harbor, heated sensations fluttered through her, like fireflies lighting her up as they flew through her body.”
A well-written, quick, entertaining, and satisfying read. Sometimes picking up a novella is just what I need to cleanse my brain between reading heavier or longer novels. This saucy little story hit the spot with interesting characters, some humor, some spice, and a thoughtful NA second chance love story about a returning vet with a few issues. Both of the main characters are likeable and smart people, who have made some less than intelligent choices. I enjoyed the story, humor, and steam – oh yeah, did I mention the spice? Let’s mention it again just to be safe.
When she was younger, she worked in a variety of jobs, moving to various countries. She backpacked alone through Europe, and lived in Paris before returning to the U.S. She owned a bookstore for a few years as she loves to read. She’s now married to a fantastic man, and they have two kids, a cat, and many fish.
