Giovanni Roma was jilted at the altar. Twice. Meeting Natalie is an enchanting distraction—too bad she’s engaged to another man. To top it off, Giovanni’s mother has a mouth with no filter and is obsessed with finding her son a suitable baby-maker.
Natalie DeMarco is a good cop with one problem. Cold feet. Her fiancé is a decent man, but she’s starting to wonder if decent is good enough. Maybe the doubts could be blamed on Giovanni, that guitar-making Italian hunk next door.
Giovanni knows he must do something, but things get out of hand when he learns he’s not the only one who objects to the wedding.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I tore through this in an evening. It was a nice, light, fun read. The story was original, the characters were fun and amusing, and the writing was a fast, fun pace. Thinking back on the book, there were a lot of story lines and action packed into a relatively short novel.
While I liked the book, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read, I kept going back to three things I just didn’t like–
- How the “climax” of the book just didn’t feel like it “meshed” and was a little messy and felt like the author just needed to wrap it up quickly, and wanted it to still feel “fun” and get the result he wanted.
- Why was Natalie EVER with Jacks? Seriously. The guy was a jerk all the way through. It was almost unbelievable that she would stay with a jerk like him.
- I just don’t think the title went well with the book.
Minor things compared to what a fun and fast read this was. A beach book if there ever was one. I’ll be sure to pick up his other novels for fun, light reads. Now I just need to find a beach….
