    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Re read April 22, 2019 Still four stars Still good I wish there had been an epilogue So many good reviews, so I won t go over the plot again In a nutshell, this is a story with a virgin heroine, who is shy and starved for love getting the man of her dreams only to find out that he was blackmailed into marrying her by her guilty grandfather That the hero is also in love with the heroine is painfully apparent to the reader, but he is very slow to acknowledge it because his Sicilian pride Re read April 22, 2019 Still four stars Still good I wish there had been an epilogue So many good reviews, so I won t go over the plot again In a nutshell, this is a story with a virgin heroine, who is shy and starved for love getting the man of her dreams only to find out that he was blackmailed into marrying her by her guilty grandfather That the hero is also in love with the heroine is painfully apparent to the reader, but he is very slow to acknowledge it because his Sicilian pride demands that he have revenge against the grandfather for blackmailing him Of course the heroine gets caught in the middle of all this and feelsunloved and betrayed than ever happy sigh for the angst we know is only going to be short lived I do wish that LM had shortened the scenes leading to the marriage like the wanna be OM on the European trip had too much page time and had milked the angst when they were in the middle of their misunderstandings The walk without answering her phone and the hero s frantic worry, were a good start but I wantedof this.The love scenes were lovely and effective in showing just how good they were together and the language felt specific to these characters So many love scenes feel generic their wedding night felt like their wedding night not any other billionaire virgin combo.I wish there had beenof a grovel at the end it did feel a bit abrupt But this is an excellent HP and one to be re read with pleasure

    3.5 STARS It has almost all the ingredients that a HP reader hopes for.A sweet virginal and quietly pining h One who is shy and unassuming and has been neglected by her rich and busy grandfather all her life People invited to her own party are cruel and demeaning to her behind her back and to her face as well Unbelievably crude of them but happily adds to the angst.An alpha hot Sicilian billionaire H, the grandfather s business partner who has occasionally noticed the inconspicuous h fo 3.5 STARS It has almost all the ingredients that a HP reader hopes for.A sweet virginal and quietly pining h One who is shy and unassuming and has been neglected by her rich and busy grandfather all her life People invited to her own party are cruel and demeaning to her behind her back and to her face as well Unbelievably crude of them but happily adds to the angst.An alpha hot Sicilian billionaire H, the grandfather s business partner who has occasionally noticed the inconspicuous h for past some years maturing from a quiet schoolgirl to a quiet wallflower The wily grandfather sets a snare to force the H to marry the gd The proud Sicilian writhes and fumes but can t get out of it, so sets out to woo the not really plain jane h.The h is skeptical but gives in to his persistence.Post Wedding bells and honeymoon ecstasy, the H has reason to believe that the h was complicit in the trapping of him So, lo and behold, the Sicilian vendetta Which wasof a damp squib andin the way of cutting his own nose and all.What I liked All that went on till here, even the angry H s revenge and ways to get there Ow s contributions are always welcome too.Where it failed The h has apparentlyalways lovedhim, but when he does start wooing her, she wonders if she really wants to marry an Italian guy and lose her independence That was a bit contrary for the adoring and unassuming h.Getting the story to a climactic precipice, the author took the way of a gentle settlement instead of going headlong into drama filled confrontations where the h usually flees in pain and disillusionment, and the jerk has to work for it So, an almost non grovel as she didn t seem to want one She was already in pink ponies and babies land I mean he was cruel and cold to her, and blamed her constantly but she never thinks of leaving him even once Not even when she had a valid reason to believe that he was cheating on her which, of course, he was not.Lastly, the H accuses the h of machinations and takes the offended moral high, but the h or the author never call him out on his own deceitful and cold blooded reasons for wooing and marrying her But, an all around thumbs up

    Had its good moments but wasn t amazing.The h was presented as the shyest girl every socialit makes fun of but at the contact with water she turns into a mermaid the H she s all strong independent woman Not that it stops her from succumbing too easily into the H s charms.I felt the H being all about pride and lust for the most part of the book so I really didn t feel much for him Also, his carelessness hurt the h a lot Of course at the end he says he always loved her, but still Problem is, Had its good moments but wasn t amazing.The h was presented as the shyest girl every socialit makes fun of but at the contact with water she turns into a mermaid the H she s all strong independent woman Not that it stops her from succumbing too easily into the H s charms.I felt the H being all about pride and lust for the most part of the book so I really didn t feel much for him Also, his carelessness hurt the h a lot Of course at the end he says he always loved her, but still Problem is, after I discovered traces of grovel do exist in HPs I ve become a glutton for it and I neededin here

    Well, I m not surprised that I enjoyed this one Lucy Monroe has always been a favorite of mine And once again, she gave us another powerful and intense love story in her book The Sicilian s Marriage Arrangement.Hope Bishop is a shy, young woman who grew up craving for only one thing that money can t buy her grandfather s love She s used to being ignore, so when Luciano de Valerio, the man she had secretly dreamed about for years, suddenly paid her attention, she was thrilled For the first Well, I m not surprised that I enjoyed this one Lucy Monroe has always been a favorite of mine And once again, she gave us another powerful and intense love story in her book The Sicilian s Marriage Arrangement.Hope Bishop is a shy, young woman who grew up craving for only one thing that money can t buy her grandfather s love She s used to being ignore, so when Luciano de Valerio, the man she had secretly dreamed about for years, suddenly paid her attention, she was thrilled For the first time in her life, she felt important and loved So she agreed to marry him She was too happy to realize that Luciano was being blackmailed by her grandfather.Luciano De Valerio a sexy and equally gorgeous tycoon and sicilian to boot And loyal to the bone So when Hope s grandfather approached him with a deal Marry Hope or say goodbye to the shipping business of course, he s furious But what choice does he have He agreed to marry Hope but he will have his revenge.But love gets in the way. Will it too late now for Luciano to save his marriage when the truth came out Hope s character was a total surprise for me At first she was introduced as a shy and vulnerable woman But as the story progressed, she showed us that beneath her fragile exterior lies a strong, independent woman who does stood up for herself and didn t take crap from Luciano She stood her ground and faced her problem She d rather be hurt than ran away And I admired that trait.Luciano was your typical alpha hero When he was hit, his first instinct was to hit back I just wished that he beg and grovel someto make up for his unwarranted misjudgments and condemnation of the heroine.The Sicilian s Marriage Arrangement was a good read and well written The pace of the story was perfect and it flowed smoothly The characters had the right amount of chemistry and guarded emotion And it was fun and amusing to see how they were going to handle those

    Pretty decent read The hero jumps to conclusions and causes unnecessary problems but hey it s harlequinland Still the conflict was different from what I expected I expected the heroine to throw a fit when she finds out about the reason the hero married her but instead it was him throwing a hissy so at least it was different Overall an enjoyable read for HP fans.
