    I absolutely adored this book Lots of angst, emotions I couldn t put it down I particularly like books in which the characters have history The two main characters grew up together, fell in love, but circumstances forced them apart They come together 11 years later, clear their misunderstandings, and love stronger than ever Sarah is a sweet likeable heroine who stays true and brings up their son, and Renzo is a hot, handsome, self made man who has always loved Sarah Definitely worth a rea I absolutely adored this book Lots of angst, emotions I couldn t put it down I particularly like books in which the characters have history The two main characters grew up together, fell in love, but circumstances forced them apart They come together 11 years later, clear their misunderstandings, and love stronger than ever Sarah is a sweet likeable heroine who stays true and brings up their son, and Renzo is a hot, handsome, self made man who has always loved Sarah Definitely worth a read I wish there werebooks like this

    This book was apparently written in 1996, but it almost feels like it s much older It s VERY dated I was alive in 1996 and I don t recall Italians being in relationships with non italians being considered interracial and shocking Everyone in this book is insanely racist, backward and ignorant It felt like a small town in the 50s, not set in the 80s 90s Other than that, it s VERY long and the characters are all exaggerated and cartoonish But weirdly I didn t hate the book, I liked the h This book was apparently written in 1996, but it almost feels like it s much older It s VERY dated I was alive in 1996 and I don t recall Italians being in relationships with non italians being considered interracial and shocking Everyone in this book is insanely racist, backward and ignorant It felt like a small town in the 50s, not set in the 80s 90s Other than that, it s VERY long and the characters are all exaggerated and cartoonish But weirdly I didn t hate the book, I liked the history between the H h and how sweet their relationship as friends was when they were kids I personally like the secret baby trope, which is what inspired me to read this The hero was pretty old fashioned in his bossiness and alpha ways, and the h was pretty much a weakling doormat as soon as she got within 100 feet of the H I can t say I recommend this book, but I did finish it and found it interesting enough to want to know what happened next

    Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars, I just don t know how to rate it The first part was great, loved the story about young love The second part, when all the misunderstandings about secret child and lost love were solved, just went downhill I felt like reading another book, a suspense book Good thing is the second part is about 70% towards the end.

    Sarah and Renzo first met when she was a little girl who captured a butterfly and captured a slightly older Renzo s heart She had no idea when she was little how much she impressed him The two met again when she was in middle school and was taking racist garbage from a popular girl at school whose father ran the primary source of employment in the town Renzo understood what it meant to be the reject His boyhood had been spent with a prostitute mother who didn t really want him He was myster Sarah and Renzo first met when she was a little girl who captured a butterfly and captured a slightly older Renzo s heart She had no idea when she was little how much she impressed him The two met again when she was in middle school and was taking racist garbage from a popular girl at school whose father ran the primary source of employment in the town Renzo understood what it meant to be the reject His boyhood had been spent with a prostitute mother who didn t really want him He was mysteriously rescued from that life by an aging Italian mafioso who helped him find a new home where he grew up with love But he never forgot those early days, so helping Sarah made sense.The two became fast friends and eventually lovers On a hot summer day, when the town s young people were illicitly gathered at a quarry near town, Renzo and the brother of the girl who had so badly treated Sarah years earlier challenged one another to dive into the quarry from increasingly higher places Sadly, only Renzo immerges from the quarry s depths Worse still, unbeknownst to him, he had impregnated Sarah But before he could be accused of murder, he skipped town with help of the mysterious mafioso man a man who told Renzo that Renzo was his grandson.This is an intriguing book When Renzo comes home to take over his dad s newspaper, having first won a Pulitzer Prize, he and Sarah awkwardly at first, then steamily reunite Before the book ends, the two must work to find a killer.I enjoyed the author s writing style If you re triggered by racist words and phrases, you probably want to let this one slide on by There s lots of that in here

    Where do I begin This is one of the few books I ve ever read, where I honestly disliked the hero from start to finish Renzo, I guess is the authors idea of a take charge alpha male or whatever But instead he comes across asof a manipulative, misogynistic, asshole douchebag, had no redeeming qualities in my book no pun intended I can count at least three different scenes in this book, that would have gotten this guy a restraining order in real life That s definitely the modern d Where do I begin This is one of the few books I ve ever read, where I honestly disliked the hero from start to finish Renzo, I guess is the authors idea of a take charge alpha male or whatever But instead he comes across asof a manipulative, misogynistic, asshole douchebag, had no redeeming qualities in my book no pun intended I can count at least three different scenes in this book, that would have gotten this guy a restraining order in real life That s definitely the modern day hero all women dream about, right ladies I didn t care for the doormat heroine either, who seems to be sobbing weeping or crying every other chapter I couldn t be the only one at times, who wished this chick would have just taken a damn prozac The supporting characters, came across as cartoonish over the top at times And on top of that, this book supposedly took place in 95 I was not aware that there were small towns in america that harbored this much racism toward Italians The setting the tone almost feltlike the old south versus the present day midwest I felt like this book had so much potential, but in the end it just fell flat in many areas If you re bored looking to pass the time, I d suggest it If you re actually looking for something better written, without the confusing run on sentences, I might add I d probably pass on it

    This book has some serious potential, but unfortunately the characters not only fell flat, but downright angered me The character of Renzo is nothing but a misogynistic, manipulative tool who does what he pleases while claiming to love the heroine, Sarah Sarah herself is flighty and weak, allowing herself to be manipulated not only by the hero, but another character as well This readlike a medieval romance novel than a modern romance, and the amount of racism and prejudice present in th This book has some serious potential, but unfortunately the characters not only fell flat, but downright angered me The character of Renzo is nothing but a misogynistic, manipulative tool who does what he pleases while claiming to love the heroine, Sarah Sarah herself is flighty and weak, allowing herself to be manipulated not only by the hero, but another character as well This readlike a medieval romance novel than a modern romance, and the amount of racism and prejudice present in the book felt a lotlike a small 1950 s town although admittedly, I cannot speak from experience whether this was an accurate portrayal of rural midwestern America in the mid 1990s or not.Further, I found there to be a TON of run on sentences and just generally confusing writing Overall, the book angered and frustrated me, and I am frankly surprised I kept reading I gave the book a 1 5 because at least the plot and the potential the plot had kept me turning the pages until the very end I will have to try one of the author s historical novels, as I feel she may do a better job in a different time period
