London and Gianni awe what a great love story.... I really enjoyed this emotional love story. Gianni really stepped up to the plate with Andrianna. I was really upset with th family for assuming and investigating more. I'm was happy London let him in to love her. Can't wait to see what happens in the next story just JUICY GREAT JOB! Wonderful Read

Loving Gianni was my first book by Nikki Walker. I loved it. I loved her use of language and I loved the tension between the characters. London is a fixer-upper par excellence and Gianni has a home in dire need of fixing. There are many things about Gianni that could use a makeover, in particular his image, but London is sure she's not the one to do that. It's possible that Gianni may see things differently but there are others in the equation with different agendas. I read Loving Gianni in two
Amazon - Nia Forrester
What sets this book apart for me is the depth in her prose. She doesn't generally write very long books, so it's essential to make the words count, and in this one she definitely does. At the beginning of Loving Gianni as we're getting to know him, she sprinkles little nuggets of information that are both informative and nuanced. Like this one: He knew wine and he knew women. He knew many things, but of those two things, he was a master. How could that not make you smile?

By: Nikki Walker Published By: N. W. Age Recommend: New Adult - Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Review: "Loving Gianni" ...The Rossellini Family by Nikki Walker was a wonderful sweet romantic novella of two people who long for something and finally received it. This author gives the reader a well written story of a 'Professional Organizer' London Quarle. London's life was well organized in that she owned her own business and set to help others organize their life. Never would she have thought that her best friend, Edwina would need her services but when her Aunt had passed and she 'inherited property' well who was their to help....London. Only London never expected that a cousin of Edwina would comes and 'turn her world upside down.' Now, why was this? When London and Edwina had visited this 'elderly Aunt's resident' it comes out...this Aunt had been a hoarder and this project becomes very hard for London to take on. Why was this? Then comes Edwina's cousin into the picture...the good looking Gianni and the chemistry between London and Gianni comes all front and center. Will there be a little something going on with these two? Gianni has now hired London to help with the cleaning of his Aunt's place. What is the dark secret that seems to be larking in the background for London and even for Gianni? Now, I don't want to tell you too much...I really want you to pick up this excellent read and see how this author ties it all together in this well written novella. It's not long novel but very evenly paced read. You will find from the read that this one is definitely a powerful story of love that you will not want to put down until the end....and will be left wanting more! You will quickly see how this love does radiates between London and Gianni. Will they be able to stop and receive it? Also, in this great story is one of a love of a child who learns of her father as well as he learns of her. Will this love blossom? Will there be forgiveness from a family that thought they knew the truth about what had gone on with Gianni...why he had gone away... but really didn't know the real story? There will be a lots of answers to many questions as you read through "Loving Gianni." All in all be ready to be given a powerful story of love, forgiveness and most of all family. Thank you Ms. Walker for letting me read this one early. It was indeed a excellent novella.

LOVING GIANNI . This was my first book by Ms. Walker. I enjoyed it for several reasons, the first being that she created an engaging, romantic story that portrayed an interracial relationship without being raunchy. So many IR novels are really erotica. She did a wonderful job creating likeable characters I was able to relate to. Gianni is good looking, kind, generous and sexy. What more could a girl ask for? I'm looking forward to reading more of the Rossellini family and their friends.
