My namesake in a book, cool! NOT! His treatment of her was just disgusting to me and she should have kicked his @@@ rather than take it hoping he would love her back someday. Despite the fuzzy ending this one I could barely finish. I keep going back to it hoping there would be some amazing twist that would make it all seem alright but it never happened. HATED this one.

Salon owner Julie Stanford wanted Nathan Tucker ever since she gave him his first massage. Getting paid to feel every inch of his body, stripped, oiled, and spread out in front of her? Stuff dreams are made of. But the sexy guy was oblivious to the signals she was sending - until she finished off his final rub-down with something extra. In fact, the best extra he ever had. Unfortunately, he came around too late. Now Julie's moving on.... The woman was driving him crazy. She lit fire to his insides then ran like a scalded cat. And now she's going to someone else to have all her fantasies fulfilled? Over his dead body....

In this book the female is the stronger character and the male seems clueless. Eventually they get it together but unless you really like a strong female character this one will leave you rolling your eyes.

An interesting story that definitely makes you want to know more about Damon but the public punishment scene just ruined it for me. However if you can hang on the future books work real hard to humanize Damon and your opinion of him will soften.

Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it. Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she? Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance.

I really hate reading books where the Dom/Sub relationship portrays the woman as a spineless twit and some of Maya's books do this in my opinion. I did not feel that way with this book. It was a sweet romance with likeable characters and left me ready for the next book.

What did you like best about The Italian's Suitable Wife? What did you like least?

The storyline should have made for a great read but the female character was spineless and the male character insecure.....all made worse by the terrible narration. I have never disliked a narrator before but she was so wrong for this book it just ruined it.

Book has a good premise but good grief it goes in so many circles that after awhile you want to scream. It just kept going and after hanging in there the ending is almost open ended and you either start the second book hoping to get the finish you wish was in the first book or you give up. Disappointed for sure!

I'm honestly not sure what to think about this book. It's so different from anything else she has ever written. It's doesn't really have an ending which leaves you wondering if there is going to be a follow-up book. The main character has two men interested but she never really makes a choice. I hate to say it because I LOVE Dee Henderson but this one was not very good at all.
