⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Roman Villani is the youngest of the Villani brothers and is left in charge of the business in New York while his oldest brother and his wife are in Las Vegas. Roman always feels he has a lot to prove since he’s the youngest and if he wants to be taken seriously and considered to be a good choice to run the business, he needs to be ruthless and in control. However, that control slips when he sees the girl he loved as a teen that was sent away when they were younger because of her father’s betrayal.
Marchella Amante’s life has been complete hell since her family was exiled from Italy when she was a young teen. It seems to have been one thing after another in life dragging her down. She had a glimmer of good for a while when she was in college and then when she started her dream job after graduating, but that didn’t last long. She lost her mother to illness and her job because of her father. Now she’s barley making it by, and she can’t depend on her brother Frankie for any help.
I loved this second chance romance between two people that were forbidden to be together because of betrayal between families. Now that they are both grown and living their lives, they have to tread carefully if they want to be together, but there are still barriers that will need to be overcome before they get their HEA. Roman not only has to battle himself but he also has to battle for the woman that he has loved since he was a teen. I love the Sinfully Savage series and the characters in the books. The Villani men are sexy Italians that are dangerous, loyal and deadly. Ms. Luciani’s characters are always sexy and dangerous. I love her books and her characters. The women can be just as deadly and dangerous as the men. Marchella thinks of herself as weak, but she has no problem standing up to Roman or her own brother. She’s stronger than she thinks and with Roman by her side, she’s even stronger and fearless. I loved this story and I give it a 5-star review. I can’t wait for Dante’s story. The Epilogue has me anxiously waiting for his book to come out.
