Katherine Anderson was living a dream life. She came from an influential family, had a successful career as a food critic, and was about to marry the man of her dreams. Her life suddenly takes a change for the worse when she finds her fiancé in the arms of another woman. Her dream wedding now cancelled, she tries to find herself in Italy, on a trip she was supposed to be taking as the just married Mrs. Michael Gibbons.
Massimo “Tony” Bertalucci has had his life destroyed by a cartel known to be trafficking black market olive oil out of Italy and around the world. While the cartel thought the entire Bertalucci family was dead and buried, Tony remains very much alive and determined to find a way to get his life back.
When Tony and Katherine’s worlds collide, she is Tony’s only hope of escaping Italy alive. What Katherine doesn’t realize is that this charming, unassuming Italian man is using her to save his own life. Will she be able to get back to the states safely, or will she be subjected to the same fate as Tony’s family? Will Tony find a way to stop running? Or will he have to surrender his life to the cartel?
Anxiety, tension, suspense and a bit of romance. This book was a lot to take in, but worth every minute of it. Though I would have appreciated a bit more on the romance side, I really enjoyed this book. It was full of suspense and intrigue and it certainly kept me on my toes until the very end!
Katherine was ready to start her happily ever after until she found her finance in their bed with another woman… Ok, so plans change. She has already paid for the Honeymoon, so she is going to take the trip. She is a strong and independent woman and she knows she will be just fine on this trip flying solo. Well… flying solo may be a bit of a falsehood when she spots him on the train. Suddenly he is everywhere she is and though part of it creeps her out, part of her is really intrigued. He’s hot, he’s kind and he has secrets.
Tony is not who he says he is, but he has a lot riding on people not finding out that he is alive until he can get out of Italy alive… and maybe figure out who destroyed his family. But what he isn’t expecting is anything more than to use Kate to help him in his grand mission. But webs are woven and things change and as fast as you can blink everything sifts. Everything changes.
The intrigue and suspense in this book was enough to keep me going and though I was not prepared in anyway for this book, it hit with tremendous force and cannot be missed. It was well written and has a lot going for it. I couldn’t out it down and I didn’t put it down. I fell in love with the characters, the local flavors. Sure there were moments when I was cringing and the big oh my moment was certainly a lot more than I was prepared for. Catch your breath and take deep breaths before opening this book. You have no idea what a crazy ride you are about to get on when you turn the page.
