Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away…that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen.
After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.
R.S. Grey’s books are known to be intriguing and captivating. But, this book did not manage to pull me in the story as much as I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed reading it but there were a few things that I didn’t find that interesting.
The beautiful Vernazza is just the perfect background story. The author’s writing style made me want to jump on a plane to Italy. To the land of pastas and gelatos. After reading this book, Vernazza is definitely in my top places in the world to visit.
Apart from that, there were moments in the story where the main characters, Georgie and Gianluca made foolish decisions. But of course, even fictional characters have flaws.
The plotline from the very first page until the end is fits together and are precise. What makes it all more interesting are the side characters that supports the story.
All in all, this book is still a great summer and light read. It is true that R.S. Grey’s books never disappoint. I highly recommend her newly released book that are full of exploring new places within our reach and the mouthwatering cuisines of Italy.
