Romance Review: Uncovering the Corettis by Carol Marinelli

Uncovering the Correttis (Sicily's Corretti Dynasty, 0.5)

The more powerful the family…the darker the secrets. Meet the family everyone’s talking about in this prequel novella to the Sicily’s Corretti Dynasty series, bought to you by Harlequin Presents.
Investigative journalist Emily Hyslop is furious when her editor—and ex—reassigns her from a career-making exposé to a frivolous wedding in Sicily. But scandalous secrets lie behind the union of the rival Corretti and Battaglia families. Things start looking up when Emily meets the most intimidating, not to mention sexiest, man she’s ever encountered….
Detective Anton Soranno has valuable insight into the Correttis and their scandalous dealings…and plenty of reason to hate them. He’s the perfect source of information—and the more he helps Emily with her story, the more time they have to explore their intense desire. But even as their passionate nights uncover surprising feelings in both of them, Emily and Anton know that she must leave Sicily once the wedding is over…

This was actually a really short story, but showed some great characters that I believe will be used again in this series. Since this was actually the prequel and we only got to meet the family, it was a little fast the amount of the surprises and gossip that we received, but I hope we get to see more of the family and understand their reasons for fighting so much.
The love couple in this book is actually the least of my thoughts because I didn’t really connected with Anton and not gonna lie how much it disturbed me the way he lied and used Emily, to in the end discover after two days that they are soul mates and belong together after everything he’s being through the amount of hate he still have.
