Matteo Corretti is probably the most conflicted character I’ve read in the Harlequin presents line.
Yes, he has seen things and done things that not every man in this world has had to do, but come on, has he ever heard about the term “move on”? Apparently not. I also didn’t like the way he was too cruel to the heroine.
Alessia, the heroine, on the other hand, must be a developing masochist. It’s unbelievable how she falls more and more in love with a man who can be very cruel to her. And this is supposed to be about love.
The only thing I like about this book was the white knight/real man distinction. It took a a while for both of them to realize they’ve been holding on to their ideas instead of getting to know the real person they were married to.
I may be weird like that, but I just did not feel the love between the two of them. I was not completely disappointed, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped I wold.
