situation to make the hero realise and say I love you first The heroine and hero had a verbal discussion, so she went to the bathroom and cried a lot, then she went to bed and fell asleep Next, she woke up and felt she was bleeding, but don t worry, she didn t lose the baby However, the cherry of the pie was the epilogue I LOVED it It was 13 pages and a half, and she got pregnant again with twins I also liked the age gap between the main characters, 14 years Xx It took me a little time to warm up to both Giancarlo and Cassie In the beginning, Giancarlo was kind of a wooden character, very distant and hard to relate to, and Cassie honestly gave up the goods to him WAY too easily Giancarlo took Cassie s virginity then figured he d use the hell out of her for the next few weeks before dumping her and moving on with his life and Cassie too easily agreed to his terms of just no strings sex for a few weeks before he set her free to go back home again BUT It took me a little

Giancarlo took Cassie s virginity then figured he d use the hell out of her for the next few weeks before dumping her and moving on with his life and Cassie too easily agreed to his terms of just no strings sex for a few weeks before he set her free to go back home again BUT THEN, these two got hot and heavy and Giancarlo became wayrelatable, revealing to Cassie all of his past with the woman he loved with all his heart and soul, who threw him away for his own brother Giancarlo explains how he had build a fortress around his heart and would never let another woman have that kind of power over him again After their short affair ends and Giancarlo sends Cassie on her way, she discovers she s pregnant with his child a few months later There s so much angst here as Giancarlo is clearly disgusted with the prospect of fathering a child, as well as now being tied to the baby s mother The angst was off the charts when Giancarlo agrees to marry Cassie for the sake of the child, as well as when Cassie gets to meet Giancarlo s brother and his wife Gabriella Cassie full of hopelessness and despair feels in her heart that Giancarlo could never love her like he loved his sister in law view spoiler and his evil SIL Gabriella tells Cassie that she will never fit into Giancarlo s world and his friends will never accept her Gabriella tells Cassie she intends on divorcing Giancarlo s brother and making Giancarlo hers once again It was very nice angstiness and I loved every second of Cassie s doubt and heartbreak wrongly believing that she would never live up to Giancarlo s expectations nor would she ever pass scrutiny of his family or friends either hide spoiler I loved all the angstiness and I loved how this author got me to fall in love with Giancarlo and Cassie, and

doesn t have the ebony eyes Or maybe it s my english and I didn t know ebony was a shade of blue AnywaysNo, I wasn t fan of the H but can t blame his logic, and at least was honest with the hHer words shattered his fantasy Giancarlo s mouth hardened with a grim kind of reality check and not just because talking was the last thing on his mind right now Start telling a woman about your dreams and she started seeing happy ever after And what if he told her that he had no dreams left Wouldn t that only make her determined to prove him wrong in that way that women had wanting to show that they and only they could change you And they couldn t even if you wanted them to As the heroine knew he wasn t pursuing her in a romantic way or thinking about a future together, I can t feel that outrage about his lack of caring for her and her disappointment by thatremembering the almost indecent haste with which she had accepted Giancarlo s offer to be his mistress It wasn t all lost with the heroine She did the typical I don t want you to buy me expensive things, which was the detonating of their break up She knew she had to inform him of the pregnancy even if nothing could come out of it and reacted perfectly for me at his stupidityNo, it s not yours, she said bitterly The baby is mine all mine You don t have to do a damned thing in fact, you can stay away from us, Giancarlo, because we don t want you or need you I told you because I felt that it was your right to know that s all As I finished this last night I can t be 100% sure but I think he was celibate during their weeks apart.BTW what happened to the good bye mistress gift Thought she might sell it to get money or wear ir all the time because she adored it or something It just disappeared To be honest I forgot about this story and hour after I read it I really wasn t fond of the writing style in this one or the dialogue or scenarios This plot is something I like but the way it was written didn t evoke anything from me.

The angst is delicious, the hero is very arrogant and proud and I love hard heroes Cassie is a very sweet, loving, insecure heroine but I would be too if the love of my life was 15 years older than me and a billionaire aristocrat Giancarlo is quite a dark hero so it was lovely to read how Cassie and their baby healed him and made him whole But don t read this if you don t love super alpha heroes 4.5 stars, rounded to 4 because the I didn t like the beginning very much, it wasn t interesting at all Heroine comes from a small town, is working in a department store The moment hero sees her, he turns into Boner Man, he is super attracted to her He invites her to dinner, she accepts, they have sex She agrees to become his mistress until Christmas, then leave They have a wonderful time, during

super sweet, kind, with such a big heart, and she wasn t a doormat She, stood up for herself, had spirit and spunk, and was basically THE MOST ADORABLE HEROINE EVER Anyway, so it is obvious she is in love with him She has a lot of pride and self respect, and does not accept any of his money, and when the time comes to leave, she does not take any of his gifts with her I really, really admired that about her So she comes back home, and discovers she s pregnant She calls him because he has a right to know I admired that SO much about her too Heroines never, EVER do that anyI loved her for it She was so strong and independent, AND JUST PERFECT Giancarlo, of course, proposes orders her to marry him, and even though she resists at first, she doesn t go OTT refusing and throwing tantrums HER REACTION WAS PERFECT, JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF BELIEVABLE, AND NOT BITCHY It was perfectly in character I LOVED HER THE HIGH RATING IS BASICALLY ALL HER I also loved how she jumps in his defence, and how she is super sweet and caring and how she is caught up in insecurities, AND I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED THE 14 YEAR AGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM I SO LOVE MAY DECEMBER ROMANCES The hero was also

him that she is pregnant.While this is a tried and tested plot, the execution of this book is pretty much perfect I am a big fan of Sharon Kendrick, and I love it when she write thegentle hero The hero in this book manages to be that, as well as having all the alpha traits you would want There is a lot of emotion and passion in all of the hero and heroine s interactions and the whole story has a wonderful flow The relationship actually develops over the story by that I mean we, the readers, actually get to see how the characters get to know one another and fall in love rather than a book where the timeline jumps a lot.This is a nice, yet passionate, read I enjoyed it.Originally posted at 3.5 stars rounded up Her new husband was a cat litter billionaireOh, Sharon Kendrick you know what
