How do you love someone but sort of hate them at the same time? Meet Enrico and Olivia. Enrico is the sexiest Italian alpha who expects things done his way – period.
Olivi is an Australian designer on holiday in Italy trying to find herself. Who she finds, is the best sex of her life – RICO. Enrico Ferrarra has everything except the one thing money can’t buy – Olivia’s submission to his bossy ways. But he loves every minute of it.

This is the second book I have read from TL Swan. I thought the first one was just unusually good. However, I quickly realize all her books have the perfect romance formula I love so much. Her stories are the reason why I love romance. Her stories are easy to read. There are no flowery descriptions just to make the word count high. I love this!!!

In The Italian, their eyes are locked across the room with so much sexual heat. It makes their “meet cute” sexy and most swoon worthy. Hours later they are dancing and kissing but Olivia is a good girl. She doesn’t do one night stands even though she really wants to. After a world wind weekend together, they are separated by the most horrible circumstances imaginable leaving Olivia in shock and horror.

Years later they are reunited while Olivia is on a date and the jealousy Rico exudes is so heated and sexy. Olivia and Rico are the perfect couple who fights and have makeup sex. They argue like my boyfriend and I argue. Except for the billionaire status, they are like any other couple you know. She is quick to realize her mistakes and ask for forgives, the same as Enrico. He is tall, dark and dangerous. However, once Olivia walks into his life he quickly becomes the sexiest teddy bear you want to squeeze and hold.

Together, I love them. The angst pops up daily and quickly squash. And when they argue and storm out the room, the writing leaves you thinking “Damn, Olivia is a bitch!” She is just as hot headed as Rico. Both can’t stand the idea of being angry for long, however.

This is one hot, hot and hotter read. I couldn’t get enough of these two characters. By far, one of my most favorite reads this year. TL Swan has become my new one clicks author with her fabulous storytelling. Its full of romance so sweet and sexy with a side of drama.



They say there are three things you should do at least once in your life: Dance like nobody’s watching. Travel the world. And fall hopelessly in love. I aimed to do all three. I went to Italy to find myself. But he found me. It was like a story book, our eyes met across a crowded room. He asked me if I needed help reading the menu. We ate, we laughed, we danced, and I fell. Unfortunately, things didn’t go to plan, and we parted ways. Two years later, our eyes meet across a room again. Only this time I was on a date with another man. He went crazy in a jealous fit. But the man I met then is different now. He’s colder, harder, and officially one of the most powerful men in Italy. Dare I say it, even more enticing. But if you dance with the devil, you get burnt. And the fires in Italy are scalding hot.
