    Nope I wanted a trainwreck and instead I got this This is a virgin widow story as you can tell from the title The hero was the heroine s stepson for two years When his father dies, the heroine inherits either a sum of money or a position in the family empire The heroine chooses a position in the empire to please her bitter, demanding mother whose career aspirations were thwarted when she fell pregnant with the heroine.The hero hides his sexual attraction to the heroine behind a facade of Nope I wanted a trainwreck and instead I got this This is a virgin widow story as you can tell from the title The hero was the heroine s stepson for two years When his father dies, the heroine inherits either a sum of money or a position in the family empire The heroine chooses a position in the empire to please her bitter, demanding mother whose career aspirations were thwarted when she fell pregnant with the heroine.The hero hides his sexual attraction to the heroine behind a facade of verbal abuse Lots and lots of verbal abuse He gives her a position as his PA, hoping to break her.The heroine obviously equates verbal abuse with love because her bitter wheelchair bound mother has only given her verbal abuse her whole life As you can see, this is a match made in heaven the hero never tires of abusing the heroine and it s not just verbal He threatens to hit her at one point His early memories are of being a raging child looking for attention He thinks of himself as unlovable and he acts that way The heroine has the same hangups, although her feelings of being unlovable were channeled into people pleasing I didn t believe the happy ending I couldn t believe that any good could come out of this toxic relationship without years of therapy for both The author did a great job of showing not telling how messed up these two people were for 95% of the story with no grovel from the hero This wasn t a romance, it was a case study

    I have so many things to say but I m falling asleep so I ll leave the ideas and tomorrow I ll edit it to give it shape So don t read yet I edited, then it wasn t saved and re edited this I was in need of angst and clearly Luca didn t want to disappoint Can t blame him that much, the first time he saw Kath he wanted her for himself but no, she was his new stepmom the sixth wife Add that he practically didn t have a relationship with his really old father and you getthan enough a I have so many things to say but I m falling asleep so I ll leave the ideas and tomorrow I ll edit it to give it shape So don t read yet I edited, then it wasn t saved and re edited this I was in need of angst and clearly Luca didn t want to disappoint Can t blame him that much, the first time he saw Kath he wanted her for himself but no, she was his new stepmom the sixth wife Add that he practically didn t have a relationship with his really old father and you getthan enough ammunition for an alpha jerk to make an appearance.Luca s business strength is his creativity, obviously that wasn t confined to business No, he was very creative in the ways he insulted Kath, gotta give him that He was also very creative with the twisted sexual theories about Kath he liked torturing himself with.Luca s reasons for being cold mean love phobic paranoic were not so convincing for me, I ve read Heroes with really tortured childhoods that are less jerks than Luca At least he didn t cheat like his brother.I wanted to marry Saint Kath myself Having to endure that mother, Luca and her coworkers, I would have gone mad Yet she never stepped down to their level, she didn t let them walk all over her either, she chose her battles, definitely a class of her own.I couldn t understand why the tabloids loved Kath She was the poor twenty something marrying the rich eighty something Tabloids in other stories and real life crucify heroines for way less than that view spoiler I thought there was a point when Luca would stop bullying KathOr this has always been Kathryn, a voice in him suggested,sharply than was strictly comfortable And you have been nothing but an assBut no, he didn t apologize and only left the hatred in stand by.About the pregnancy shock really, neither of them expected consequences after they banged each others brains out like a thousand times without contraception I know I m exaggerating here with the thousand times but still, once is enough After the car scene I was waiting for Luca to realize the possibility of pregnancy and then think all his conspiracy theories He never realized Kath had to tell him and just then his paranoia started, I just needed to throttle him I couldn t find the LONG and DEEP GROVELING I thought was due, I can somehow forgive it because in the epilogue you could tell he was good to her, showing his love in details like his cooking or planning their wedding I really liked their relationship, they were helping each other confront their ghosts and I definitely loved that And in the end Saint Kathryn wasn t saint anyAnd she hadn t been above winning that argument by using the heavy artillery.When she d finished with Luca, he d laughed and told her he d give her anything if she knelt before him just like that and did all of it over again, her mouth and her hands, every day All I want is my own marketing campaign, she d told him This is merely a side benefit Keep this up, he d replied lazily, and I ll give you the whole damned companyI just loved this part A small thing, I was never told who filtered the story of Luca and Kath s romance s hide spoiler

time, I almost didn t want the heroine to end up with the hero Not because I was jealous and wanted him for myself or anything, but because he was such a disrespectful dickbag to her for 70% of the book, becomes nice to her only when he s proven wrong, then reverts to being said dickbag behavior the last twenty pages of the book because he s a scared, stupid little boy who thinks other people are always out to get him because no one paid attention to him or gave him a hug when he was a kid IMHO, he doesn t deserve her Fortunately, our heroine Kathryn gives as good as she gets, stands her ground, and makes the reading of this novel worthwhile even when Luca Castelli is acting like a spoiled brat and is at the pinnacle of his douchebaggery I just wished Kathryn gave him a couple of good kicks right square in the nuts whenever he threw a hissy fit That would have set him right Your Heroine At first glance, Kathryn might seem like a run of the mill, self sacrificing virgin out to martyr herself for the greater good Sure, one of her motives for marrying Luca s father is to have the means to give her disabled, arthritic mother a stable home and much needed home care She also did it to please her mother unable to advance on her own due to her self perceived lack of smarts, Kathryn thought it was time to use her good looks to help herself advance in the business world She thought she was just trying to fulfill her mother s dream for her because her mother worked very hard and sacrificed her own chance of happiness to be able to give Kathryn the chance she herself was denied which, of course, she never failed to remind Kathryn every day of her life Her mother had been a successful investment banker, but Kathryn got through her business degree by the skin of her teeth, so the MBA program for her is sheer torture She studied hard all hours, forsaking dating or any kind of social life at all for that matter, but she still struggled like a fish on a hook Meeting Luca s father was a blessing he owned a successful, internationally renowned winery or whinery, if Luca were in charge All the old man needed was companionship, nothingif Kathryn were to stay with him for two years maybe less, since he s dying it would ensure Kathryn an important, executive spot in an international company Her mother tells her to look upon it as an internship Kathryn agrees, if only to get away from her termagant mother But Kathryn does not receive the warmest reception in Italy The servants are cold to her, her husband s eldest son Rafael politely ignores her and is ambivalent toward her at best, but the younger son, Luca, is openly hostile to her face and there is something beneath his anger that makes Kathryn superbly uncomfortable It s a littlethan disdain or disgust at his father marrying for the sixth time a woman a third of his age Kathryn can t figure it out, but whenever Luca looks at her, her skin suddenly feels like it s two sizes too small When her husband dies, everything comes to a head His will dictates that she must have a position in the company, but Kathryn is quick to point out that she doesn t want a useless, figurehead position she wants to learn everything about the business Luca and Rafael think it s merely a ploy on her part to get a bigger stake in the company, so they offer her a generous lump sum to go away and disappear forever It s a tempting offer, since nobody seems to want her around, but she sticks to her guns and tells them she wants to work She doesn t want to work with Rafael, who is the CEO and does all the boring stuff like running the company, keeping it going, making sure people are getting paid She chooses to work with Luca, who is the creative arm of the company, and takes care of stuff like marketing, publicity, schmoozing with society and business folk, and pretending to be a cool, bon vivant playboy who gives zero fucks about the serious things in life when he is really a ruthless shark, you guys Daddy Castelli isn t even cold in his grave when Luca begins assaulting her in the study, calling her a variety of names that all rhyme with old digger and bore and when that doesn t ruffle her feathers any, decides to manhandle her person by shoving his tongue down her throat and his hand down the front of her dress What a charmer To her own surprise and perhaps consternation, Kathryn responds enthusiastically and with passion until Luca realizes he s kissing the most evil hooor who ever lived and shoves her away again Kathryn openly asks him, Why do you hate me And he s all, Coz you re a whore, just like the others Shut up I don t like talking to you before he stomps away, slamming the door after him Kathryn, I assume, has a look on her face at this point that says, Okay that guy is nuts but he sure can kiss. But Kathryn remains solid and untouchable, even through Luca s many attempts to humiliate and mortify her At work, Luca basically paints a target on her back by destroying a merit based promotion process that the employees have held to and respected for many years by making Kathryn his new executive assistant instead of promoting someone from within the ranks As if that s not enough, heor less orders his staff to treat her like garbage He s hoping she won t last the week, take the lump sum they offered her, and go away But Kathryn wants what Daddy Castelli promised her and she s gonna get it Like a boss, she grits her teeth, bears down, and does what needs to be done until Luca notices that she s actually the best executive assistant he s ever had But does that change his opinion about her Of course not He ramps up the abuse and thinks to himself that a whore is a whore even if she is a brilliant secretary Plus she s a bad person who possibly drowns puppies for fun Your Hero Luca is a hard man to understand Or tolerate He has some good points and I can mostly understand why he is the way he is, but he s just so damned stubborn and thick headed that he makes you want to shake him like a rattle and scream in his face He believes his mother killed herself from the heartbreak of losing his father and his father treats women like Pokemon gotta catch em all When he was child, he was starved for attention so he acted up and threw tantrums until one of his well meaning stepmoms pulled him aside and told him to stop being acting like a little bitch because in this world, you gotta look out for Number One coz ain t nobody else gonna do it for you Luca takes this advice to heart and develops an I give less than zero fucks persona of the ne er do well younger brother who only cares about himself and the next target for a notch on his bedpost But as it turns out, his act is actually a part of the Castelli business model because he s really good at hobnobbing, schmoozing, and making contacts at parties, so the company reaps the benefits of his magnificent Italian charisma Thus he becomes Luca Castelli, International Playboy, tabloid darling, and Giver of Zero Fucks.And then he meets his father s new wife and completely loses his shit It was actually a pretty vivid, evocative scene Daddy Castelli announces he s brought a new bride home and summons his sons over for a meet and greet Luca prepares himself say hello and immediately dismiss the nineteen year old child bride his father must have surely brought home, but he is almost brought down to his knees at his very first sight of Kathryn and all he could think of was Not her, not her, not her At that moment, he becomes completely and totally obsessed with her, but convinces himself that she is just another one of his father s whores, out to fleece the old man for his money He teaches himself to hate her, to seek ulterior motives behind her every action, to be suspicious of every word that comes out of her luscious, beautiful mouth There is just no way she is as innocent as she looks hell, the tabloids have taken to calling her Saint Kate No woman would marry a man three times her age out of the goodness of her heart The gold digging ho wants as much as she can get and there s no chance in hell she d be able to convince him otherwise He will not nor will he ever condescend himself to go after his own father s leavings Oh, but one of Luca s redeeming qualities Lover boy is generous and not stingy about going downtown. Preach it, Girlfriend Whorish behavior always adds up to two whores, Luca Not one dirty whore and an innocent with dirty hands by accident, almost but not quite corrupted by doing the exact same thing No matter what lies you tell yourself Oh My Word I was 80% finished with this book and thus far, enjoying the hell out of it when it occurred to me hold up, wait a minute he only comes to believe that she s not a lying, cheating ho or the most evil skank in the universe because her vagina is still vacuum sealed and has never been opened What kind of fuckery is this It certainly brings a whole new level to the virgin whore dichotomy I couldn t love you because I thought you were a skank, but now that I ve discovered you re pure and thus, good, you are worthy of my love and I will treat you like a precious thing from now on. Which brings me to another wrinkle in the storyline that really irked me Once Luca decides she is an object worthy of being cherished, he begins to refer to her as cucciola mia which means my pet or my puppy When Kathryn demurs on the nickname, he says, I don t think you have much choice in the matter or something to that effect Dude But the biggest thing that made me want to reach in and yank Kathryn out of the book for her own protection was this when she confesses to him the BIG MAJOR THING that freaks him the hell out and makes him lose his mind again , he reverts to complete dickbag behavior and accuses her AGAIN of being a manipulative, scheming whore In her defense, Kathryn says YOU DUMBASS, I WAS A VIRGIN YOU WERE THERE WHAT THE HELL No amount of logic could knock the wind out of Luca s outraged sails, however, and he retorts Oh yeah What kind of woman would hold on tightly to her virginity for her twenty five years only to lose it in the backseat of a car to a guy she can barely even standSeriously, I was surprised Kathryn didn t gut punch him right then and there and left him for the ants HE SLUT SHAMES HER when he is the one who devirginized her Oh, Lordy, I need my smelling salts Never mind the salts, give me vodka Oh and for you fans of groveling out there there s like, maybe, an eighth of an ounce of it He doesn t beg for her forgiveness, doesn t throw himself at her feet even though he was absolutely abominable to her for 70% of the book and only becomes nice to her because she has a hymen What he does do is throw himself a pity party, so that Kathryn is basically manipulated into forgiving him Luca, you wily piece of shit The only thing that comforts me about the HEA is that throughout the book, Kathryn shows signs of having a backbone made of some hard stuff and that she knows exactly how to fight back While I think Luca should be locked up in a dog crate for a week and fed only dog food to see how he likes being my pet, I think Kathryn could probably handle the guy just fine The previous book of this series is about the older brother, Rafael, who is in love with a former step sister and searches the world to find her Schyeah, I m going to read it Man, these Castelli dudes sure like to keep it in the family
