He’s the quiet brooding guy who’s owned my heart since I was sixteen but has refused to claim it.
I’m the naïve woman who believes that someday our time will come.
I just didn’t realize that someday would include waking up in Vegas with a raging hangover and a ring on my finger.
If we believed in fate, maybe one of us would’ve trusted that something more powerful than ourselves interceded because our love is one of tangled vines. As twisted and frayed as they’ve become over the years, they’ve never broken.
An annulment seemed like the easy way out. We should’ve known it wouldn’t be fate that intervened, but our Italian Mamas. They can deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the guilt.
We thought it’d be easy to pretend to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.
But nothing is easy when it comes to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing.

It’s not the pasta I have an appetite for right now though–it’s my husband. Who knew that could be such a problem?-Valentina
Not my first read by author and I have been following this series and COULDN’T wait for Van & Dominic story! There is something about a broody sexy business man and a history that always draws me. This also had me in tears a few times too!!
Now Val and Dom have known each other since they were kids, Italian life and family and all but even since their young age, say when they were teenagers, they both knew they would be together. Aaahh young love, sadly that ALWAYS turned into loss. Until that faithful night after success and happiness they ended up drunk off their asses and MARRIED! Yes, married, as in Dom was there for other reasons and also was she, when they wake up and realize they both are wearing rings….THE FUN BEGINS.
As much as neither want to admit for one another, fate had other ideas, along with their Italian Mama’s who haha the guilt-trip was fantastic. So what’s the harm in acting like a happily in love married couple for a few weeks? Well you know history, current situation and lot’s of sex & BAM, you get angst, sexy, addictive characters and story and a hint of adventure. In the end it’s really up to them to either move on past EVERYTHING or stay where they have been, get the annulment and move on with life. Simple as that, I absolutely LOVED both the characters, getting a little glimpse of the prior books and maybe even the future ones to come. It was heartbreakingly beautiful!
