As the new CEO of the biggest up-and-coming bakery empire in the US, Max Gray knows one thing: he absolutely cannot screw this up. Which is the very thing that would happen if he laid a finger on the owner’s–and his best friend’s–younger sister, Carina. Carina Conte is an ugly duckling in an ocean of swans. Everybody in her family still treats her like a little girl, despite her MBA and everything she’s done to show them otherwise. Even worse? Her long-time crush, Max, barely notices her. Totally unacceptable. While away at a business conference, Carina and Max get caught up in the heat of the moment and have a scorching one-night stand but are busted the next morning by Carina’s brother and mother. When her traditional Italian family forces them into marriage to keep her good name, Carina is determined to make the best of her new life…until she learns Max wants anything but his new marriage or young wife. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed.


This series is sweet and so much easy to love, and I loved to watch destiny and the Mother Earth help these women finding their happily ever after, but this book is actually my favorite and Carina is a really special girl and deserved this happiness.
At first I thought Max was just a womanizer but them I discovered he has some darkness in his past and the way he handles his affairs. He doesn’t lie and every girl knows from the start there’s no relationship and no future, but everything changed so fast for him.
Carina was such a sweet girl in the last book, that it was a complete change when I saw her grow up and acting all strong. Their relationship was actually a big jump and I didn’t like how she changed so much after their night together.
Carina was so strong and just surrendered to her mother in one second. I understood Max and his reasons to accept, but he could have tried a little better during the actual marriage.
I liked this series and believe their will be a next one very soon.

Let’s Talk #3

Lets Talk Lets Talk!

Welcome to the Let’s Talk weekly discussion meme!

Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another!  Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses. This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let’s Talk!

I’m loving this meme and how much fun is read everyone answer for the week question. It’s interesting to see a different side of the bloggers.

What are your thoughts on series? How many books in a series is too many? What authors do you think handle longer series well, as opposed to ones who seem to stretch it out less successfully?

This week is right up my alley, because I personally love a series and sometimes the first book is all about an introduction, but still very fun to dive in a different world and imagine what’s life for them. Is very difficult for me to read a stand alone, but a series I always devour.

I love a trilogy is the perfect amount of story, but the more the merrier. A few favorites:

  • Dark Hunters by Sherrilyn Kenyon,
  • Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward,
  • Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent,
  • Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine,
  • The MacGregors by Nora Roberts,
  • Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa,
  • Goddess Test by Aimée Carter,
  • Shadow Falls by CC Hunter,
  • Rough Riders by Lorelei James,
  • Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout,
  • Mythos Academy by Jennifer Estep,
  • Masters of the Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair,
  • Crossfire by Sylvia Day,
  • Psy-Changeling by Nalini Singh,
  • Elemental Assassin by Jennifer Estep,
  • Black Knights Julie Ann Walker

Okay this are definitely authors that can handle really well longer series, but there’s no way I can say anything bad about some authors, because if I don’t like a series I just stop reading, but that’s really difficult to happen and so far there’s only one on my list:

  • Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill

And I will read the last few books, but after the 5th I was a little afraid of the way things were progressing.
