I have to say that I love the covers of this series. Yes. This is the second book in a series. Technically you could read this stand alone. There are only some little bits that might draw a blank from book one, the point is though the series is amazing. Now onto the book.The nice guy, Cole. The one that does everything right and by the book, might have just had enough. I found Cole to be irresistible in his charms. The feeling of having to earn your parents approval is a strong motivator, in fac [...]
Cole is his father's right hand man. The good son, he always does his duty and never strays from the straight and narrow. Gwen is a funky, sassy, independent woman. When these two get together the tension is combustible. They have both wanted and loved each other for years, but is Cole willing to risk his family's approval for a lifetime with Gwen?This is the second installment of the Risso family series, but holds up very well as a stand-alone. Once again I loved every second of this story. Fam [...]
I received a copy in exchange for an honest reviewI read the first book in this series a few months ago and enjoyed so when I was offered the rest of the series for review I jumped on the chance to continue this series. The Risso Family series is great for when you're in the mood for a short hot romance. I like how this book ties in with the previous book, the main characters from the first book make an appearance and the focus is this time on Lia her best friend Gwen and Lia's brother Cole. The [...]
Falling in love with your best friend's brother is usually a bit complicated Especially when your best friend's brother is 10 years older and appears to do exactly what is expected of him, which includes not falling for the daughter of a "wild-child hippie" as they say!Gwen Larkin had avoided Cole Risso for 3 years but to Cole's pleasure, that was coming to an end. His sister Lia was getting married and Gwen was her maid of honor so she had to attend all the festivities. This would give Cole the [...]
This second book in the Risso family series is written as phenomenally as the first. Reading the story is like living the lives of the characters; you can feel their pain, happiness, lust, and every other emotion. I cannot say enough about Lynn Burke's writing style and how it makes the reader feel.Cole has hidden his feelings from his father for many years. As the oldest son he will take over as the family patriarch when his father passes and being of Italian decent that holds many expectations [...]
What do you do when the only woman you've ever loved will never be accepted by your family? That's the dilemma Cole faces. Gwen and he shared one hot, passionate encounter, and she's been avoiding him ever since. A state of affairs that is slowly killing him, but to change the status quo would mean going against his father's wishes. He's the good son, the one that toes the line, and does what he's told, and besides, how do you get a woman to listen to you, when she is determined to avoid you?Wel [...]
Un poco menos instantáneo y más intenso que el anterior Triste que tardaran tanto en estar juntos gracias la padre de él.
