Renzo knows that he had no business thinking about Lucia, but he wanted to find out who she was, and why she did the things she did, not like a spoiled princess he first thought her as, she was making his head a mess and he has to find out why. Renzo knew he could feel their electricity, but one kiss and he was done, he wanted more. Surprised that Lucia knows what he does and still by her side, surprised when she sees that if you take away the money, their all the same, people surviving. The more time she spends with Renzo the more she realises how much he cares for his brother and sister and they are the reason why he does what he does, that she could never understand what his family goes through she was given the privilege of a good life, and everything she heard made her see how amazing he was. The only thing that Lucia didn’t like was her father telling her she couldn’t see Renzo and the threat not to make him force his hand about it. Despite all the warnings, Lucia can’t stay away from Renzo, when he explains he did what he did, because no one will get close to her while he’s there, she should have run, but she didn’t, when he says she’s his, she’s right where she wants to be. They both had been warned to stay away from each other, neither of them listened, but the soon realised that Lucia’s father was going to do what ever it took to keep them apart, but Lucia is a Marcello and stubborn as they come but can she win the war against her father making decisions for her.
I've read many of bethany's book but this is not one of my favourites. I found it slower read in comparison to the other books or a different style of writting. It was new seeing Renzo come from a poor background and sacrificing all his dreams to be and become anything to survive and feed his siblings. The love of his siblings is admirable for the love he has them. Bascially plays a mother and father role to them.
