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.
Enrico, Rico to his friends was the super rich, gorgeous Italian alpha male who saving a lady from being mugged was shot and hit by a car...already you have to love this guy. Geanna was in love with Rico since she was practically a child, and she was the first to arrive at his bedside and stayed at his bedside day and night. This was very unlike his fiance Chiara the model who stayed in her hotel sleeping. During the nights Geanna held his hand and told him how much she loved him, and it was touching. Somehow it was just flat, and I don't know why but I never warmed up to Rico. I guess it bothered me that he was engaged to that stick figure with no soul, and then he dumped her. Yes he did end up with Geanna but there was very little conflict I thought it was a little boring. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nada.
I like alpha males, unrequited love, jealously, and angst, which Lucy Monroe usually delivers. This story had little to none of these. I'll read more of her books, but couldn't recommend this particular storyline.
When Gianna was told of Rico's accident she drove to him immediately. Only to find him in a comma and his fiancee now where to be seen. She has loved him for so long that she would do anything for him. Even marriage. His accident left him paralyzed, for now. And she would do anything even have his child. But what about his now ex fiancee? Will she just stand by?
