Where to begin with this book? It was GREAT! Is that a good place to start? This is the first in a new series by Ruth Cardello and it is a great start. It is a heartwarming story of love, lies and family.
Gio has a lot of anger in his heart from believing things about his extended family. When he meets Julia, who is a refreshing difference from his normal life, he soon discovers that he needs her in his life. As their relationship develops, he holds on to the anger and heartbreak from his past and won’t let himself admit his true feelings for Julia. There are moments that I just wanted to reach into the book and smack him in the head! lol
I loved Julia’s character! She was so funny and honest. When Julia said to Gio, “Maybe you should. Then you’d look less like you’re constipated all the time.”, I have to admit, I laughed very loudly…out loud. She made me grin several times and even her thoughts were funny much of the time. I also loved her intense need to reconnect Gio with his family. She was definitely a family person. I loved how she was willing to step up for what she wanted in her life, even if it meant losing the man she loved.
This story showed how lies can drive a family apart. Gio had to learn the real truth of his past and his family before he could accept love into his heart. These two characters really appealed to me. I think I may have a new favorite couple! Great job by Ruth Cardello on her beginning to her new series! I can’t wait for the next book. Five HUGE stars for this one!
