Publisher's Summary

An author finds inspiration in Tuscany in the form of a hot Italian single dad.... This summer is going to be a scorcher. 

A writer who's blocked - I'm a total cliche. 

Lucky for me, my agent has a cure that's an even bigger stereotype - a month at her villa in Tuscany, with nothing to do but find my muse. 

When he walks right in the front door, adorable son in tow, it feels like fate has finally done for me what it does for every other clichéd girl I've seen in the movies. Except that he's completely off-limits. In this case, business and pleasure can never mix. 

Because Claudio is my agent's ex. 

Still, he's smart, charming, and wickedly sexy, plus a great father to Vanni. He's fast becoming the cure to all my writing woes. And it's clear he wants me as much as I want him. 

As the hot Italian summer wears on, it becomes harder and harder to resist. Succumbing to the heat even just one time could ruin my career. Or he could be exactly what I need.

Contains mature themes.

it was good

It took me a couple of chapters to listen and be excited for this book. only because the female accent was so strong it drove me crazy. but it dies down to normal as the book goes on and I did end up loving it.

Hot Italian

I enjoyed the story and the characters. The descriptions of Italy were beautiful. The narration was for me the best part. The Scottish accent the Italian accent and language or musical. And even the voice of the child wonderfully done by both narrators.

Beautiful story, truly awful narration.

Karina’s prose and her ability to suck you into her world were on point, as always, but the narration killed this book for me. Both narrators were so awful that I had a hard time finishing this book. The male did a better Scottish accent than the female character, but his Italian accent wound up sounding a lot like Transylvanian. I kept picturing Dracula every time he spoke. I read exclusively on audio, but if you can pick this up in ecopy or paperback you should definitely do yourself a favor and give it a go. 5 stars for story, but the terrible accents mean I’ll be giving any books with those two narrators a big skip.
