I am so torn with this story. Let me start off with what I wasn’t crazy about. Francesca AKA Frankie is sold off to a man who is a calculating control freak named Dante Bellanti. He is a mobster and her father owed him a great deal of money. To pay off the debt, he sold his vineyard and daughter Frankie. For me…I have a problem with how she reacted to the news that she was marrying a mobster. She didn’t fight it. She seemed to go along with it quite well. I also was frustrated that the author never really tells you how old Frankie or her two sisters are. We know her younger sister is an older teenager since she’s a senior in high school. But we have no idea how much older Frankie or her older sister are. No idea how old Frankie is when sold to the mobster.

I loved how strong Frankie is and maybe that is why she went along with the marriage. She helps around the Bellanti vineyard. She suggests improvements, but the ANGST between husband and wife is CRAZY. She hates him. She loves him. She doesn’t want him to touch her, but she melts when he touches her. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed reading the story and the new twist at the end leaves you wanting more. Also, when Dante does touch Frankie…OH MY GOODNESS is it HOT! That is fun to read also.

I guess what I am saying is if you like a story with angst and hot fun in the bedroom and over the office desk, this story is for you. Just a few little things that bothered me in it but they may not bother you AT ALL.
