At first, I was really captivated by this story But then, I ran into some significant lag at the 70% mark After that, this story lost its mojo, just didn t have the same zing that Ms London s novels used to have As a matter of fact, the drama that occurred in the last 10 15% of the story, just felt rushed and half done.I expected better, and as a reader with an itchy 1 click finger, I should have gotten better than what I was given.Giving this one 2.75 stars
I just love, love, love the Italian Knight series so much My very first book by author Billy London was Windows which is Book 1 of the series.Widow Emmanuella Harrison aka Ella came to Tuscany, escaping the suffrage of her immediate family to set up home and shop for her and her son Rufus Oftentimes it s good to change scenery especially when a betrayal so deep causes you to question your entire family and when your sister was sleeping with the now dead husband, so the best thing to do is put an [...]
I finished this book right before going to bed I might or might not had a dream featuring Duranteoh my No time for a long ass review, but will leave you with some random thoughts I loved that, again, Billy proved that mature couples make great romance reads Loved Ella and Durante She was nutty, and he the calm to her crazy I liked that the personalities of the characters were captured in the tone and cadance of the narrative And Durante that name is so on point On the side characters I like how [...]
I was so excited to read this book Durante made an appearance in A life Sublime He was described as Nick and Paul s hot uncle I loved the dynamic and chemistry between Durante and Ella This is a story of finding love when you have so much baggage and demons that will not allow you to lay them to rest The supporting characters added to the story You are introduced to Ella, her son Rufus and her crazy family in London I loved that Rufus was a miniature Ella, in his frankness It s like God s cosmic [...]
4.5 StarsThis story gets back to why I loved The Italian Knights series to begin with It s romance meets Mr Mrs Smith I fucking laughed til I had tears in my eyes I can t stand a precocious child, but with a name like Rufus, all is forgiven Ella Harrison one of these names is my own is a semi grieving widow who has sorta fled to Italy to get her mind right after her husband s untimely death I initially did not like Ella after she appeared to have abandoned her son with her overbearing mother, bu [...]
Good read I wasn t in love with this book like previous ones in the collection but it was well worth the read
It was a really nice read Reminded me some of that movie with Diane Lane, Under the Tuscan Sun.I was a really good story, the stuff at the ending had me like wha Like it was pulled out of the blue This is my frist book on the saga, so it might be that.Some things also felt rushed and just very quickly set on stone Other than that I kept confusing who said what.Recommended who like their romance mature not in the sexual way there is a bit of that yes , in the older 30 something mother second chan [...]
I truly enjoy this series This installment was no exception Durante and Ella make a great couple They both are the sums of their past, but have remade themselves into the beings they are presently Add in Rufus and Arlo and a family is made My only dislike was that there wasn t much family action until the end of the book The other books were filled with the animosities between the families involved Still love the series.
4.5 stars Really enjoyed this one.Starting to appreciate a good romance with older characters.ess that comes with age but I loved Durante and Ella Rufus and Arlo were just like real brothers and loved each other as such.Rufus just was too smart for his own goodlolbut that Angela.
Love this seriesThis book falls in line with the series perfectly, though I often have a hard time understanding what is being said, I work it out I loved that it is written the way they speak Nothing made up or falsely added, but perfectly British This is a fun book, with romance and some added violence, just how I like.
Love it.This book was a great addition to this series I was wondering what happen to Durante Now it got me wondering what Ema did before she married David What s going to happen to Arlo next I wonder.
The latest Italian Knights book, showcase Durante and Ella Both in their 40 s and learning to live in the now rather than in the past Not letting the past define who they are Another wonderful look at second chances and love at a later age.
Enjoyed it This was a good book The book before it was much better, but this was really good too.I m glad I was able to meet the brother and learned about him and his lady Great read and great writing.
