Schmexy Rating: 4.5 out of 5
This sat in my kindle library for over a month before I was finally brave enough to read it. The title definitely scared me. I am here to tell you DO NOT WAIT!!!
Theresa has always wanted Alessandro, and believed that she could love him enough for the both of them. She is the only daughter of a wealthy business man. Her life with Alessandro is definitely not what she wanted, and no longer wants to be unloved and unwanted. They get married but he is awful to her, I mean just a real asshat. He never engages in conversation, and treats her like an unwanted houseguest, however they have sex every night with one sole purpose. You can honestly feel her pain when she describes how he makes her feel.
I really hated Alessandro in the beginning and my heart broke for Theresa’s pain. She genuinely LOVED him and he treated her with such distain. I couldn’t understand it. He is wealthy, good looking and he obviously must like her enough to sleep with her, but couldn’t respect her? She gets the nerve to tell him she is done and we learn so much!
So to avoid any spoilers we come to understand why Alessandro is such an ass, but Theresa at this point has had enough. Every time she lets her guard down he seems to sucker punch her again. As soon as Alessandro understands that Theresa is not who he believed she was, he starts to change and I mean truly change and make an effort to be better to her. You watch her go from a doormat to a fiesty woman, and it’s great! Of course their story isn’t easy and the author takes you through ups and downs and kept me totally engaged. Lots of angst and lots of love!
I recommend this book to everyone.. especially with a 0.99 price tag!
