Book Blurb:
An Italian single father, a motherless child…

Bella Gable never wanted to see rich, handsome Luchino Montichelli ever again! They had a brief romance in Italy when she was young and naive, butwhen Bella discovered Luc had betrayed her, it broke her heart.

Her first love, their chance for happiness…

Now, years on, Luc has come to Australia with his young daughter in tow. This Luc, who looks at his daughter with such tenderness, seems like the man Bella once fell in love with. But can she trust him enough to take another chance on this Italian single dad?

Review: 4 flowers/stars you say? Why you say? No this book isn't fantabulous. Its premise is somewhere between a soap opera and a hallmark movie. Its cheesy at its finest. The plot is unbelievable, at best

The characters are kind of lackluster.

3 sisters abandoned by their parents when the oldest is in her teens and she becomes the mother figure and an overly protective one.

She fell in love with a married man a few years back who she then finds out took his daughter from her mother and then left her in the care of the nanny....

Is your jaw on the floor yet?

He's back and demanding she work with him or he will ruin her.

It will get better, ok probably not but the plot will get more kooky and that's really why I have to fling all the flowers/stars at this story.

It pulled me out of a reading slump.

There are so many goofy twists and turns...and not enough info about how Bella got to be a model/designer and I'm so confused by how the sister act, especially as one is married with a baby on the way.

So much drama too. Again, think the worst soap opera you ever watched? This book could be part of that.

Its so bad its kind of good.

I didn't love any of the characters, but I kept on reading, because I needed to see what other ridiculousness might happen.

So no it doesn't deserve the high rating as far as content goes, but it made be want to read again, so maybe it does.

Rating: 4 flowers
