Brooke is happily married to wealthy Italian Leonardo Pariniuntil she overhears a conversation suggesting Leo was once in love with his late brother's wife. At first Brooke can't believe her handsome husband could betray her, but soon she has heartbreaking proof
Dare she believe her heart or should she believe the ugly rumors surrounding her husband? Brooke decides to save her marriage! Not by confronting Leo with her suspicions, but by giving him all he wants in bed!
This little book has it all: great characters, an interesting plot, and the hook to make you sympathize with the heroine. Brooke is an independent Australian who falls in love with an Italian, Leo. Her man-hating mother warns that she'll be miserable with such a man. Just before her fifth anniversary, her mother's words come back in an all-too-real way: she learns her husband was in love with his late brother's wife before ever meeting her! Now that this old flame is available, Brooke must decide what to do for her children and herself. Instead of confronting him, she captures his attention in bed. But is it still only sex for him? The truth and the love scenes are breath-taking.
Good read. Don't really know how I would react in this same situation. Hope I would give my DH the benefit of doubt.
