Loved this book it is definatley a keeper and has all the elements of a romance that I enjoy. It starts off 18 months into their marriage when the wronged heroine Theresa can no longer tolerate our heroes callous treatment of her. He has hot sex with her but refuses to kiss her and show her any affection and demands each time they sleep together that she give him a son as he believes that is his only way to escape a marriage he was blackmailed into by her manipulative father. She has hung onto the marriage as she truly loves him but everyone has a breaking point and Theresa reaches hers and demands a divorce. Our hero then starts to see her for who she really is and rapidly begins to change his treatment of her. He finds out she knew nothing of the plan to blackmail him into the marriage. For Theresa it is too little too late until she finds she is expecting his child. She agrees to stay with him (following his desperate attempt to keep her via threats to enforce a debt owed to him by her closest friend and cousin) until the baby is born whereby the terms of their marriage will release him from his commitment to her. Throughout the pregnancy he seeks to win her over, but she believes he wants his freedom to return to his life in Italy and to his true love. This is a very emotional read, you feel Theresa's pain and can understand why she sticks to her resolve to release him after all the hurt she has suffered. It is enjoyable to see the hero realise just how much he has wronged her and try desperately to set things right. A brilliant romance with real chemistry between the characters.

I came across this book and read a little bit of it through the 'look inside' option on amazon - and i was intrigued so bought it to find out what happens, i had lots of questions that needed answered! However, the plot is a bit far fetched - i mean, she marries a guy that she thinks loves her even though he refuses to kiss her on the mouth and then it turns out, he was forced into marrying her by her dad and thought she knew.. i mean, surely the fact that it was a forced marriage would come into conversation after 18 months of marriage? But apparently it didnt and then after treating her like rubbish for 18 months he realises that "oops, she doesnt know this marriage was forced" and then tries to change and of course they fall in love all over again and live happily ever after... it was a weird storyline, not very believable and predictable. However, if you like romance and 50 shades of grey type books (this one isnt quite as raunchy) and dont really care how dysfunctional the relationship is then this could be the book for you!

What a surprise this book was. Sometimes with self published free reads there is an experience of disappointment. This wasn't for me.

As soon as I start a book I know very quickly whether I am going to "get into it" by the first chapter. I got into this from the opening paragraph.

I love books with this type of storyline - angsty, cold male - I am a sucker for romance and believe in happy ever afters and I read this hoping that Theresa and Allessandro would have their HEA.

The story starts with Theresa and Allesandro having sex. Theresa turns to him lovingly but he kills the moment with five words - "give me a son Theresa". What the reader doesn't realize at this point is that Allesandro has been blackmailed by her father to marry her and the only way out is to give her a son.

Theresa decides enough is enough and provides five words of her own "I want a divorce, Allesandro". Unfortunate timing as Theresa discovers she is pregnant.

There is a number of powerful and emotional scenes in this story as Allesandro realizes he is about to lose something he does care about. He wants to save the marriage and tries to heal the rift between him and his wife.

Yes there were a few minor issues with the plot but that did not detract from the storyline. This for me was a well written story and a plot that I love. Does Allesandro get the son he desires? Read the story to find out.

It is a sweet romantic read and I will certainly look at further books by Natasha Anders.

I enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would. This isn't the type of story I would normally go for but I stumbled across it when a Goodreads reviewer mentioned it whilst reviewing another book. I started with a sample, so sure that it wouldn't be for me, but I was hooked from page one.
The synopsis is Alessandro - rich businessman, and Theresa -another rich businessman's daughter, are married and we join them 2 years into the marriage. He is Italian, gorgeous and cold as ice except in the bedroom where he is HOT. But he never kisses her on the mouth. That's way too personal. Theresa is pretty but not aware of how lovely she is and she went into the marriage madly in love with her husband despite his coolness towards her. But two years of a marriage so cold it makes Alaska look tropical is enough for Theresa and she wants out. Things come to light and the reasons behind their union are revealed. And Alessandro realises maybe he does want this marriage after all but is he too late?
The element of this story I loved the most was the character development. Theresa could come across as malleable and soft but she isn't written that way. She is determined to get out of this marriage and reclaim her life away from her husband and manipulative father. Maybe at times she was a bit too unbending and a couple of times I really wanted her to listen to Sandro. It felt as if she was blindsided to anything he had to say. Having said that, my Kindle heart ached for her sometimes - she was so isolated and vulnerable. Her childhood was awful and married life was proving to be toxic. But watching her thaw and fall for her husband again was lovely. Now , Sandro.....I did NOT like him at first but watching him claw at everything he could to make his wife love him again was awesome.
