Jules Lane is the sister of Lizzie (the heroine in the previous book), she comes to Italy to visit her sister when she finds out that Lizzie and her fiancé Dante have decided to have the wedding in two months time instead of next spring.
Stefano DeFiore is the brother of the groom, he believes that the couple is rushing into marriage especially with all the tragic endings that DeFiore men in the family including himself have suffered in love and marriage.
I did liked Stefano and Jules relationship. They become friends albeit reluctantly on Stefano’s side since he did not want to get involved in the wedding preparations since it reminded him of his late wife. Their moments were sweet and they both genuinely wanted to understand and know more about each other.
I really liked Stefano’s character. He was sweet and very understanding towards Jules. He saw underneath all the makeup, masks to the real Jules, and wanted her to make her see that her scars did not matter and that she was beautiful inside out.
Quibbles: Like the last book in the series, the heroine Jules was insecure, very sensitive and misunderstood what Stefano said a lot the times which got on my nerves. Another thing that bugged me was Lizzie and Dante’s behaviour especially with regards to their non-involvement with their own wedding. They just shoved all the work to Stefano and Jules and it was like they couldn’t care less what their siblings were going through.
Overall, it was a okay read with little angst. I enjoyed it more than the previous book in the series.
