Enrico DiRinaldi has been shot and run down by a car. Gianna Lakewood rushes to his bedside to be with him as he is in a coma. Andre Enrico's brother is the only other person at the hospital, Chiara Enrico's fiancee has been and decided not to stay by his bedside. Gianna talks to Enrico telling him he has to wake up and get better as she loves him. When he eventually wakes he realises he cannot walk it may or may not be permanent. When his fiancee returns to the hospital she objects to Gianna's constant presence at Enrico's bedside. But once she hears that he may not walk again she is reluctant to stay. Gianna is surprised when Enrico informs her that he and Chiara are no longer engaged and he now wants to marry her. Gianna has loved him since she was fifteen years old, but she knows he does not love her, he has always treated her like a sister. That was my problem with this story within an hour of ending his engagement to Chiara he was getting married to Gianna, as the reader it was a say what moment! Though to be fair this book did improve as I got into it. To start with I was not too keen on the heroine she behaved a bit like an obsessive lovesick teenager, but she did grow on me as the story progressed. Enrico was all alpha male, and seemed to like getting his own way, the ex-fiancee, was probably justified in her accusations at the start of the story but she was just not a nice person. This was a nice read I am not sure that I found it very romantic,as Enrico's reasons for marrying Gianna were fairly callous, he decided that if he married a woman he did not love, he would not be at risk of being manipulated. He was desperate for a child, but did not seem to want to wait for his condition to improve. Although he had made astonishing progress already, but he coerced Gianna into IVF. Not an entirely satisfactory read.
Another great read from Lucy Monroe. This is the story of Giana, shy girl totally in love with italian family friend Enrico. She never had a chance with him because he only saw her as a baby sister. Until he ends in hospital with the prognosis of never walking again. Is a beautiful story highly recommended.
I love this book so much. I have the paperback copy, unfortunately I left it in my house abroad, and I just couldn't remember the name just the story... I kind of quit searching as vigorously and then there it was...
I love the story. Giant and Rico. He's engaged but won't let her go. N she loves him but she grew a backbone... Yup!!
I really enjoyed this book. Rico is an Alpha male sure - but he also has a lovely caring nature and his jealousy is well written. At times Gianna can come across a bit too innocent but then she will hit you with a sassy attitude which is delightful. Well worth the read and I am hoping Andre (Rico's Brother) will have his own story told.
