If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this series, you really don't know what you're missing! I am so glad I decided to give it a try, as I have seriously fallen head-over-heels in love with the Rossi clan. Let me tell you though, Fools Rush In is my absolute fave book of the series. I like the fact that it focuses on just a few characters, mainly the Rossi family, whereas the other two books are much more hectic.
Go ahead and buckle up, because you're in for a roller coaster ride with It Had to Be You. My emotions were all over the place with this one. One minute, I'm on top of the world, celebrating with Laz and Rosa -- then, I'm ready to knock some sense into Sal's head for causing such an uproar right before the big day.
There were times when I really didn't like some of the Rossi family members, especially when it felt like they were completely ignoring Bella, and seemingly overlooking HER big day. Everything worked itself out in the end, but it was an emotional ride for me (and her!).
It was wonderful making new friends -- I really liked getting to know Gordy, Lilly, and the Band of Gold. Finally meeting 'Uncle Sallie' was great, too. There is so much love in the air, it was all I could do to keep up with who was doing what! Multiple weddings, an elopement, a birth, multiple engagements, and the list goes one. :) I won't say anymore -- I'll let you experience it all for yourself, when you get a copy of your own to enjoy.
