Yes, the book title is cruel…but I was instantly drawn into the story—a woman married for love and just never got love back from her husband of almost two years. It was heartbreaking, emotional, and made me want to punch, Alessandro, the husband, right in the face (better yet, below the belt!). I was annoyed with the wife, who is a doormat in the beginning, but eventually puts on her big girl panties and starts to stand up for herself. But as the story moves along, you realize the reasoning behind their marriage. I was pleasantly surprised that I was rooting for Alessandro towards the end. And as always, I love, love a happy ending!

First let me say I was slightly concerned about reading this book given the title but I am so happy I did. First with a name like Alessandro de Lucci how can he not be hot!! He didn’t disappoint in that area. Sandro and Theresa are in a loveless marriage and he doesn’t exactly shower her with hearts and flowers. The sex scenes are STEAMMY….This book was really moving and you actually got to see both characters come into there own and grow. I really enjoyed the scenes when she gave him her sass. Don’t let the name turn you off – go get this book!!
