Neither wanted love in their marriage. But you don’t always get what you want.
Sophia Stevens is tired of struggling to pay the rent and help her brother through college. After seven years on her own, she is no farther ahead than the day she walked out on her old life and started again. So when super-sexy Italian property developer Luca Castellioni proposes a marriage of convenience, she’s intrigued. Financial security and life in a beautiful Italian villa in exchange for attending a few business functions and typing some letters seems very convenient. Until she breaks the most definite term of their arrangement: she falls in love with her husband.
Luca Castellioni lives for his job restoring beautiful buildings to their former glory. When his business expansion plans are hampered by the need for an English-speaking secretary and a wife, he does what any efficient businessman would do—he combines his requirements and selects and English administrative assistant as his bride. But when his fascination with his wife distracts him from business, he wishes there was more marriage and not so much convenience in their agreement. Too bad his wife has reconstructed her own life, without him.
When their respective lives pull them in opposite directions, they must decide: will they continue to put their businesses first, or allow love to overcome the obstacles between them?
An Inconvenient Love is another fairly quick read (few hours if you read fast like I do) and I absolutely LOVED this story! I can’t say for sure whether I would marry Luca so quickly or for the same reasons that Sophia did, but give me some time and I’m sure we could make arrangements. 🙂 Is it weird to say I’m proud of a character? Sophia had been through so much and overcame her past and her fears and made her life what she felt worked for her. I definitely haven’t been through what she has but we all have our struggles can at least relate to that. I’m always working to make my situations better and Sophia is a great inspiration there. I’m very glad things ended up the way they did. Also, I really want to go back to Italy now!!
