I finished this story a few days ago and my mind is still trying to process everything! Ash doesn’t people well, which is why she prefers science to people: People lie, numbers don’t. This entire time she thought she was working for the good guys, but just imagine finding out, not only do you work for the bad guys… you have two mates… and they’re right in front of you… in a rescue mission! Twin brothers, Russ and Dunn, have always grown up thinking they weren’t meant to have a mate because it would kill the mate. Imagine their shock when the person they needed most happens to be the scientist they are rescuing to save to the universe! I thought the first book was great, but this book is fantastic! There was humor (who doesn’t love nerd humor?!), romance, betrayal, and discovery. Gwen Cross was amazing as the narrator, bringing each character to life while reminding you of characters from the previous book. This book was absolutely fantastic and I’m glad I got the chance to read it! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Sometimes, witnessing something you shouldn’t have it a bad thing. “Lucy” witnesses what she thought was a crime, and calls the police… not knowing who she was dealing with. The reputation of Asher Black DEFINITELY precedes him. Asher wants to know who called the police and he does just that. They both have pre-conceived notions of what the other person is like, and boy are they wrong! With Asher’s reputation of being associated with the mob, he is in danger of losing his company. He’s being made to look unstable because he’s unwed… this needs to be remedied immediately!

I thought this was a great start to a series. It’s listed as 300+ pages long, but they fly by! The interactions between Asher and Lucy are interesting. As the reader, you know Asher is dangerous, but you also can tell he will do anything for the people he loves. Lucy tends to run at the first sign of trouble… as one does growing up in the foster care system, but there’s something about Asher that keeps her from running. I enjoyed this one, and hopefully, I’ll enjoy the next one!

Book Review: Fighting for Mr. Beautiful ~ Caterina Passarelli

Fighting for Mr. Beautiful


Title: Fighting for Mr. Beautiful (The Eternal City Love Series, Book 2)

Fighting for Mr. Beautiful picks up, literally, where we left off. Elena saves Leo’s life, but it may be at the expense of her own. Waking up in a hospital with no recollection of how she got there or why she’s in Italy at all was jarring, to say the least for Leo. It means she doesn’t remember falling in love with him. Leo needs a plan and he needs one now! Good thing he’s prepared. He either needs to help her regain her memory or make her fall in love with him again! Easy, right?! Hold your horses! Everything you remember about Elena isn’t the “Elena” she knows. With the help of her friends, can Elena regain the happiness she once knew?

There were a few discrepancies in this one… it didn’t take away from the story, but it could make it hard to follow. There were moments I was absolutely in love with Leo. He was endearing and patient. He was understanding and dealing with a lot. He was fun, flirty, he was perfect. The hashtag usage after a while started to become too much. Not a deal breaker, but it felt like there was #this or #that on every page. With that being said, I devoured this story in one sitting. I read this entire series in one night. I think this could have been flushed out a bit, but that could just be me trying to get a third book out of this series!

What do you do when you come home a little earlier than expected and you walk in on your boyfriend sleeping with his secretary? Get a fresh start… in Italy! That is exactly what CEO of a multimedia company, Elena Scott does. No return trip plane ticket. A fresh break is what the doctor ordered. While working as a barista, Elena meets Italy’s most eligible bachelor and billionaire, Leonardo Forte. He’s immediately taken with her. The problem is he doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t believe he’s capable of loving anyone. Just think of what can happen if you can convince him he’s capable of loving and so much more… maybe, just maybe, he can show you how to live… I mean, truly live!

I honestly don’t know where to start, other than there’s a stalker… I don’t mean in just the book… I think I’m going to start stalking Caterina! I finished this in one sitting. I couldn’t get enough. Don’t get me wrong, there were moments of frustration and moments of anger, just from sheer misunderstandings… but I enjoyed this! Elena frustrated me with how she handled who she was. I get wanting to be anonymous, but after deciding you were going to start a relationship with someone… the least you can do is be honest. There were some characters written for you to purely hate them, and you will. The flip side is there are some really awesome characters to balance it out. The people who have become friends to Elena are TRUE friends. It will be interesting to see how the rest of this plays out due to this story ending in a cliffhanger. BUT… if you have a solid 90 minutes (at most), you’ll finish this in one sitting, and immediately move on the next one!
