A chance meeting at a family wedding. Renzo sees the beautiful woman, but realizes she’s too young for him. Extenuating circumstances bring them together several times, and he finds himself needing to do something to protect her and keep her from a marriage that would ruin her life.
I loved Renzo and Gina’s story. They come from the same world, and their families have known each other for years, but when Gina needs Renzo’s help, she believes the worst of him when he steps up to help her, but has to think on the spot.
These two will have to work through their issues in the beginning, but when they finally start to get to know each other and make their marriage work, the unthinkable happens. Betrayal is a bitter thing to have to live with, but Renzo has plans in the works to make their issues disappear. I loved the book and the characters in Family Ties, and I hope there are more to come in this family.
