review 1: Chiara is a Rapunzel kind of heroine. She is lonely, full of curiosity about the outside world, and she can't help but feel that her true destiny lies outside of her small village. Raffaele is the son of a powerful Mafia man. His father must pay a debt and he sends Rafe to a village in Italy so as to marry the daughter of an Italian. Rafe is furious with his mafioso father. He goes to Sicily but he is determined to deny marriage to a stranger.When he gets there he is attacked by an old man and a boy. He strikes back and when he uncovers the boy's face he sees a woman whose beauty steals his heart in an instant. Only he doesn't know this unknown beauty is his wife to be. When he realizes this boy-woman is his fiance he is shocked. Still he denies the marriage and so does Ch... moreiara. Her father threatens to marry her to a sleazy man instead but Rafe can't allow that. He marries Chiara and they are off to New York. Once they get there he calls his lawyer and asks for an annulment. But soon he realizes he doesn't want a divorce! I adored the heroine! She is timid and innocent yet strong and confident. She is a very reluctant bride at first, she even lunges at the hero with a knife. She is scared of sex and intimacy because her mother told her that all men are all men are sexist pigs. But she sees that Rafe is different. He is sweet, tender, caring a totally flawless wonderful hero. He treats her as if she were made of glass both physically and mentally. Still she resists him because she doesn't want to give her heart to a mobster. Great chemistry. Their banter was just priceless! There were some funny moments and the whole mood was lighthearted. The sex was hot, the characters were sweet and lovable, the writing was witty and it has a happy ending :)
review 2: Para comenzar Raffaele,es hijo de un mafioso italiano...bueno el y sus hermanos.El detesta eso desde que descubrió como su papa se hizo millonario.Por esta razón se desligo de su familia y solo los visita ocasionalmente.Por eso acude con rapidez cuando su padre lo llama.Pensando que era un caso de vida o muerte,teniendo en cuenta de como su padre se gana la vida.Va y lo que su padre le pide lo deja en shock y muy molesto...su padre le exige que por el cumplimiento del honor su hijo se case con la hija de un italiano que vive en una parte totalmente lejana y incivilizada de Sicilia,Italia.El furioso por el pedido,se niega pero va a Italia para dar cara y negarse a casarse,cuando llega a Italia es que la cosa se pone super cómica,ya que es atacado por un anciano al que el se refiere como Matuzalen y por un chico.En el forcejeo el chico pierde el conocimiento y cuando despierta Raffaele le destapa la cara y se encuentra con una mujer hermosa con unos ojos color violeta mas bello que el haya visto...Chiara.La historia es super cómica,la manera tan antigua en que el papa de Chiara se comporta y a Raffaele no le queda otra que salvar el honor de Chiara ya que si el no acepta casarse con ella,la obligarían a casarse con un matón de los de su papa,el por lastima accede a casarse con Chiara.Pero al hacerlo piensa que tanto Chiara como su padre lo han timado para que accediera a casarse.Y Chiara también piensa que el tenia su propio plan.La historia es muy buena ,muy bien contada.De verdad que parece una película porque tiene situaciones muy locas y chistosas.Claro me parece que la conducta de Chiara es muy antigua y absurda,pero es parte de la trama.Es demaciado inocente para ser real y mas cuando la novela es actual.Claro que es una novela encantadora,además tiene unas escenas en Nueva York fabulosas,en serio para comenzar una serie con esta de Raffaele comienzo con el pie derecho.Muy recomendable. less
