Cleo Arendse: You know how almost every movie set in Italy seems to be about a woman who travels to Tuscany and is swept off her feet by a charming, gorgeous but arrogant aristocrat? Well, that’s not this story.

Luca Fioravanti:
Challenge accepted.

British Banker Cleo Arendse is nothing like the women lawyer Luca Fioravanti is used to – both because she’s only in Tuscany to oversee his family vineyard’s business and because she’s impervious to the charm that has never failed him before now.

But Luca has never shied from a challenge, and when circumstances arise that allow him to step in as Cleo’s knight in shining armour, he leaps…right into a fake marriage! The romance may be a ruse but the passion burning between Luca and Cleo is very, very real, and as the ‘honeymoon’ glow envelops the pair, all bets are off…

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC!

A fun romp in the Italian countryside, Makes me want to go in vacation!

I love a fake dating/fake marriage plot so I knew I’d enjoy this book. A fun host of characters and an interesting setting level it up despite the otherwise commonly trod plot.

I loved this book! Romy Sommer has done it again. She swept me away to Tuscany, where I enjoyed every moment of Cleo and Luca's heartwarming story. Their relationship may begin with a misunderstanding, but it brings clarity to both, allowing them to grow personally and as a couple. In addition to her wonderful characters, Ms. Sommer gifts the reader with an armchair tour of Italy. Its culture, beauty, and cuisine all pop from the pages. In short, everything about this book is a TEN! Do yourself a favor and grab a copy today.

This was certainly a heartwarming and endearing story!

From the onset, the author drew me in with the vivid descriptions of Italy, specifically Tuscany, and it speaks to her writing style that as the reader I felt fully immersed in the setting of the story.

Chloe's and Luca's story was pretty cute, and it was clear from the onset that the fake relationship would lead to real feelings. While this certainly is one of my favorite tropes and one that seems to be quite popular in current times, the unique and interesting characters made this one stand out amongst the rest!
