When Olivia and Gio broke up, she never thought she’s see him again. But her friends conspire to send her on a trip to Tuscany and back into the arms of her one time lover when she ends up at his family’s villa. Gio let Olivia go thinking she’d not understand his sexual appetites, including his bisexual nature. He and his best friend Luca make hay while the sun shines (so to speak) but he hasn’t forgotten Olivia. His parents want him to marry to take over the Rossi family business, and when Olivia shows up unexpectedly he proposes (literally!) a trade; in return for a quick marriage of convenience to get his hands on the family property, he’ll help her get her dream job back home in the US. Olivia hasn’t forgotten those steamy nights in Gio’s bed, though she wishes he’d sometimes been a bit more dominant and less tender. Saying yes isn’t a hardship when it will get her what she wants, with an extra helping of steam when Luca becomes a partner in their love match. But will the happiness Olivia finds be enough for her to consider changing her future plans and staying with Gio permanently?
Whew! There is a some hot stuff in this story, with several scenes involving this adventurous threesome in a variety of sexual combinations. Gio and Luca together are sexual dynamite, as are Gio and Olivia and when the three of them are together, it’s Gio’s dominant nature that calls the shots. While the premise of the story is a bit farfetched, it’s an interesting way to get the three of them together. The setting of Tuscany is lovely and easy to imagine. This is a lighthearted, low-angst read with plenty of heat and a happy ending for the threesome. I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for more from this author.
