She hears about an opening at a well known gentlemen’s club, The Guardian, ran by a very well known Chicago Family, the Tarseta’s.

This book is okay. I thought it was very rushed towards the end and maybe even a little unbelievable, that kind of spoiled it for me. It has some potential, the characters are developed the plot line is okay and the writing style is not too bad.
I think it could have ended better than it did, because that is the thing that has stuck with me and i kind of feel a little cheated that it was all over in such a short time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Casanova - meet the farm girl from Iowa 11 July 2015
By zoey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story was not bad. It had a lot of potential. I started it yesterday on the train ride home and finished it after dinner.

The h is studying for her bachelor’s degree. She eventually wants to go to grad school and become a vet. She is a farm girl. The H lives off his family’s wealth. He does not appear to do much except show up at his uncle’s club with a different woman every night.

The h applies for a bartender job at the club. When she and the H meet, they are instantly attracted to each other. I am okay with that except there was very little wooing on the H’s part. He is who he is, so girls fall for him all the time. They chase him. The h, for her part, held out the first few times, but eventually succumbs to the H’s advances.

I like that the H was uber possessive and unsure of the h’s feelings toward him, but there were moments when I thought he was flat out stupid. There was a scene at the club when they were on a date. The h was sitting on his lap and had to jump off him to avoid an embarrassing moment because she was feeling a reaction from between his legs. She runs to the restroom. The H thinks she has rejected him so he retaliates by fondling another woman when she leaves for the restrooms. She sees him in action when she returns. He wants her to witness the scene so she knows she is easily replaceable. He begs forgiveness when he learns the reason she hopped off his lap. The h forgives him and does not make him earn it. The H is really in his thirties?

Second stupid moment was when the h was voicing her concerns to the H one evening about possibly having to give up a spot with her desired grad school because the school was going through budget cuts with the work study program.The H thinks she is indirectly asking him to pay for grad school. The H thinks she is a gold digger, so he immediately ignores her that very evening after hearing her concerns and closets himself into his office while she is still in his living room. She then has to walk home alone from his place in the dead of the night. He later explains and asks for another chance when he realizes she does not want his money. She forgives him again. And again, the H is in his thirties?

The last stupid moment is at the end when the two head out to look for his mother who has Mafia ties. Why the h needs to research this topic is beyond me except to fill the empty pages of the book. This part of the ending was ridiculous beyond words. There was no point in including this section regarding his mom.

I like the h in the beginning. She was pretty spunky until she started dating the H. Then she lost her appeal. She became an immature, whiny 12 year old. There was a funny moment when the H bet on her pull up abilities at the gym. Well, she is a farm gal so it was easy for her to do the pull ups to show him up. Well, this was before she started dating the H. I would have liked more of these spunky moments after she started dating him.

Like I said, this story had a lot of potential. I liked the characters and the story for the most part. I also liked the dual views. The H was not as much of a jerk as I thought when you get his POV. He was really in love with the h, but just was not sure how to act since he was use to women throwing themselves at him. I also liked the characters background. The playboy meeting his match in a farm girl. The h started out strong but lost her edge towards the middle. I would have liked to see more relationship building between two mature individuals rather than a lot of sex between two individuals acting like kids.

I would definitely read more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Italian sex god, anyone? Yes, please! 20 July 2014
By Donna Pemberton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying I LOVE the cover! That alone would have sold me on this book, but luckily, the story inside was just as hot. It was a beautiful combination of the expected and unexpected that drew me in from the prologue and didn't let go until the end.

As the synopsis states, Iowa farm girl Harper Troy is working her way through college and decides it's time to find a more lucrative job by way of The Guardian, a well known gentlemen's club owned by the Tarseta family. She's hired even though she doesn't fit the blond bimbo mold the rest of the girls seem to be made from, and while they may be there to find themselves a rich sugar daddy, Harper's sole purpose is to pay her own bills and support herself. What Harper doesn't expect, is Liam Tarseta and the intense effect he has on her.

Liam Tarseta is Chicago's most eligible bachelor. He's a sexy Italian who has a different woman on his arm, and in his bed, every night. He notices Harper and decides to make her his next conquest, but the more he learns about her, the more he realizes Harper's unlike any other woman he's ever known. The problem is Harper isn't falling for his charms, and for the first time in Liam's life, he's going to have to work for the attention of a female.

Liam is going to have his work cut out for him with Harper, and even though all of Harper's warning bells are going off where Liam is concerned, the girl isn't dead. Liam is hot and his smoldering dark eyes are really doing a number on her self-control. There are so many reasons why these two shouldn't work, but holy mother of God do they have some off the charts chemistry. Besides them getting in their own way, there are other obstacles they will have to face. Liam is anything but forthcoming about his past, and as it turns out, his past is more complicated than even he knows. Only when his past threatens his future does he begin to discover the magnitude of the danger he's been sheltered from his entire life. There are twists and turns that you won't see coming, and the actions of Liam and Harper will have far reaching repercussions.

This is probably my favorite book by this author so far. I loved the characters and the details that were given to their personalities. This story had so much depth, I found myself feeling as though I was watching a movie instead of reading a book. When a book can do that for me, it deserves no less than 5 stars. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a spicy contemporary romance book with an air of mystery to it. If that's your cup of tea, you will NOT be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 16 July 2014

Harper is a college student excelling her way through undergrad so that she can get into a graduate program. She has several bills to pay and accepts a job at The Guardian as a bartender. The Guardian is one of several businesses owned by the Tarseta family and this is where she meets Liam, the youngest Italian Tarseta who comes in with a different woman each time. Even though The Guardian employs many attractive girls, Harper doesn't escape Liam's notice. Harper comes from a farm in Iowa and grew up with 2 older brothers so she isn't a girly drama kind of person. She knows how to stand up for herself and hold her ground without coming off weak or wishy washy. She's aware of the attraction and sparks between Liam and herself but keeps her distance because Liam isn't the sort of guy to have a serious girlfriend and Harper doesn't want to get her heart broken because Liam could do that to her. Even so, Liam keeps finding her and coming after her and eventually they don't deny their chemistry anymore. Liam is new to wanting a woman who isn't reciprocating so even though he is trying to gain her favor and attention, he still says and does really incredibly stupid guy things that piss Harper off and rightfully so. I loved the heat between them and all the chaos. They are definitely navigating in unchartered territory for both of them and yet it's fun to see how crazy they are for each other. I also liked seeing the transformation in Liam. He might be possessive and arrogant, but he's also caring and persistent with a mysterious past that unravels in the book. There are several things that surprised me about this story, mostly Liam and how he handles things in the second half of the book. Knowing more about his history, it makes a lot more sense about why Liam behaves the way he does and how he makes himself be the guy he wants to be once he finds something or someone he can't live without.
