This love story was a exciting tug of war of wits, passion and emotion. The story told includes the female protagonist, Phoenix, who is trying to escape a dark world in her past and release with a well needed trip to Italy. The male protagonist, Tony Creed of Creed Construction, is a handsome Italian who has a love/hate relationship with his gargantuan family and a need for something selfishly good in his life.
The two first come into contact in a bidding contract event for a resort named Everything You Need. Phoenix is the project manager and Tony Creed has been thrust into the role of lead general contractor. This wasn't his ideal job position, but all things happen for a reason. The two find themselves immediately attracted to each other, ready to pounce and act on it, but there are two issues at hand: complications at work and ultimately complications in Phoenix's heart. But as we all know, the heart wants what the heart wants...there are no rules to stop love when it happens.
I really loved this piece due to the energetic sexual tension shared between the two like an erotic game of chess where someone has to win or there is a stalemate. Let's just say that both won in a stalemate that changed both of their future goals. The two lovers knew they were playing with fire since they not only worked together but they also involved other outside innocent bystanders into their world of emotional complexities.
One of my favorite parts of this material was the detail involved in painting a picture of the setting and the detailed banter between the two main characters together and the supporting characters. However, the detail provided when the characters were in self-thought, became a little arduous to absorb at times. The writer has a passion so thick that it spills out in her expansive verbiage which can be refreshing and exhausting for the reader. Also, the point of view regarding dialogue exchange was a bit confusing.
Overall the book was a wonderful portrayal of romance; the kind of romance that is complicated, the kind of romance that makes the writer and the reader fight for the best outcome possible.
