I thought this book was awful. The so-called heroine was so conflicted, she couldn't make up her mind about anything (I prefer a strong heroine, or even one who has doubts, but this one was - ugh). The hero was an arrogant asshole; completely unlikeable & overbearing. Some people may like the helpless, hapless heroine & the big, macho hero who comes to the rescue & saves the day. I am not one of them. The antagonist doesn't show up until the very end of the story & is dispatched immediately. If this story is meant to be a mystery or thriller, it fails miserably. The storyline has much promise, but the writing and even the sex scenes were wooden.
Mousy and just plain boring. Tired of self-denial and being cloistered by her father's over-protectiveness, wealthy painter Isabella takes a vacation alone. Tough and way too cocky... Police officer Luca Angello is self-confident, powerfully sexual, and on the trail of a serial killer. Isabella thinks Luca is shallow and only out for a good time. Luca thinks Isabella needs some loosening up. Fear brings them together. When danger throws her into his arms, she discovers that he can reach her depths in ways she never could have imagined. --
