Amazon Blurb -
Marco Donati is rich, ruthless--and more often than not--indiscriminate. Interested only in satisfying his sexual needs casually and frequently, he has no intention of changing a thing about his life. Natalie Lambert is alone, broke, and new to the city when a chance encounter leaves her under the power and control of Marco Donati. As the story unfolds, tensions mount and trust is tested between two people who can't manage to stay away from each other.
Mama friggin mia, that is one hot and spicy meatball!!! This Italian girl thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Poor Natalie has not a single clue what the hell she's getting into when she smashes into the back of Marco Donati's car. He is NOT a happy camper and it only gets worse when he finds out she has no insurance. What's the solution? Well to become his housekeeper for a year of course :) How else can she work off the $20,000.00 repair bill when she has no job?
This man is alpha TO THE MAX. And what does that do to me, well it makes mama a very very happy girl ;) I love me my alphas, my hubby is a hot alpha that makes my heart go pitter patter :) Marco is confident. He knows what he wants, when he wants it, how he wants it and will not take no for an answer. Something that made my heart go yay yippy skppy, he's tall but doesn't like amazon women, he likes small gals, yay for us sweet shorties! lol!!
The moment he see's her, he's hooked though he won't allow himself to acknowledge this fact, he fights it tooth and nail actually. Though, he is uber possessive of her, hates the idea of other men even looking at her, and wants her all to himself. He won't even acknowledge publically that his cave man instincts is what draws him to petites, normally what he has on his arm are statuesque women.
And how does Natalie handle all this, ha, she's like a deer caught in the headlights. This is WAY over head as far as experience goes. Macro is out of her league both in stature physically and lifestyle. Of course she can't keep herself from falling for this hotheaded thick stubborn spoiled man. She has the patience of a saint though, keeping her cool when necessary, but putting her foot down and giving him the business when it's needed. No mamby pamby Anastasia here, thank goodness!
And speaking of that, Marco is NOT not another Christian Grey. He's been burned so he's cautious as a man of his wealth would be, and he is spoiled. When you're that wealthy you are accustomed to getting what you want. Natalie also see's a wonderful soft and gentle side to Marco with his clients who are an older couple and it touches her heart. Many compare him to the infamous Christian Grey, he is nothing like him. Christian Grey was a giant box of messed up, Marco is not that at all, and kudos and a tip of the hat to Ms. Chance when Natalie asks if he's kinky and Marco says " You read too much fiction."
I loved this book, I love this author and look forward to reading more of her, this was my first but not my last. The only thing that kept it from a 5 rating was the quick wrap-up of the ending. I would've like to see that fleshed out a bit more. Other than that, exquisite!!
