A Roller Coaster of a Ride

Rating By Michelle,13/03/2017

Well what a roller coaster of a ride that was, or should I say that you felt you was on a roller coaster. We have have Ellie who is a junior doctor and Rio who is a self made millionaire. It starts off that Ellie is looking for her real father and travels to Italy to meet Beppe who could or could not be her father and has was given a ring by her mother on her death bed (I should point out Ellie has a sister Polly who was also given a ring but Polly's father had already died and is now married to Rashad and at Polly and Rashad's wedding Ellie first encounters Rio who she calls a male whore). As it turns out Ellie and Beppe are father and daughter, and their a lot of sexual chemistry between Ellie and Rio so much so that one afternoon while during one of there many arguments Ellie and Rio make love on the sofa and so the story then takes on could Ellie be pregnant and then out of the blue Rio proposes Ellie accepts and then a few weeks later Ellie and Rio are married. I don't want to give to much away, but what I will say is ten chapters are just not enough I would have liked longer chapters so that I could get to know the characters more. 

Comfort-read voice and love scene masterclass!

Rating By Sue,19/03/2017

Lynne Graham is a comfort-read voice for me. Reading her is slipping into memories of previous favourites with echoes of Lynne Graham heroes and heroines that enhance the reading experience. That same voice kept me turning the pages–despite not being a fan of the playboy-trope–when I was suspicious of Rio’s motivations for thinking the worst of Ellie, who isn’t my favourite Lynne Graham heroine, but holds her own with other Harlequin Presents’ heroines If voice and character carry the beginning, then I also loved how she delivers un-skippable love scenes…. The first love scene felt like an extension of how gorgeous the hero is and who’s going to say no to a Lynne-Graham hero…? SPOILER I loved how Ellie tells Rio to just get it over with and he’s affronted. END OF SPOILER So we have triple helpings of backstory/conflict, misunderstanding and suspicion, overridden by high emotion and sexual tension, and a love scene where SPOILER Rio discovers that Ellie’s a virgin END OF SPOILER A lovely emotional mess. *rubs hands together gleefully* The second love scene almost made me *peer through fingers* and think: "Oh, no, I’m afraid this is going to be page-filler and skippable." But it isn’t. It comes in the angry aftermath of falling out during their wedding. I won’t go into details as there’ll be more spoiler tags than review if I’m not careful! And it ends on an emotional low note. Low note for the relationship, not for the writing. Third love scene–"I’m definitely going to skip this, aren’t I?" but thought with a lot more uncertainty and a lot more willingness to read on and be proved wrong again. This time we’re eased into it with dialogue and see a different side of their relationship. A what-their-marriage-could-be-like side. Again, the love scene ends on an emotional turning point, making it impossible to look away. The flipside of reading a voice where previous characters still share the pages with you, is that it creates high expectations and I found myself measuring this against the Presents’ line, and against other Lynne Graham’s, one of the authors who IS the line. And I think 'The Italian’s One-Night Baby' meets the expectations of readers already in love with her books, but there’s enough of where the line is at now to satisfy newer readers. Such as, the areas that I’d been suspicious of being too older-Presents (misunderstandings shoring up conflict and the trigger for the black moment) but which are borne of the hero and heroine’s pasts, particularly the hero’s.
