The Gentileschi Sisters are daughters of a king, princesses who come to the U.S. to pursue their careers and fall in love with seemingly unsuitable men.

After the untimely death of her young husband, Mariella Gentileschi Moretti has had enough heartache in her twenty-three years. Now at Georgetown Law School, she's determined to protect herself and her daughter from the perils of the world. But when she takes a class from law professor and Pulitzer Prize winner Dr. Jordan Dubois, she finds herself drawn to him.

Jordan's life is a mess and he grabbed the chance to become a visiting professor at Georgetown to get away from his problems. More complications face him when he meets the lovely young widow. He's captivated by her gentle ways, so different from the women he left behind in France.

She's in his class so he can't avoid her. Their six-year-old daughters become best friends at an after school program at the university. And they simply can't stop the moving forces that seduce them into a doomed relationship. A guaranteed tear-jerker, their story will move the reader to cheer for their reunion.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Love Will Keep Us Together by Kathryn Shay is book 5 in the Gentileschi Sisters series. While it is a standalone reading the prior books gives you more background into the family. Mariella (Mari) married at a young age and at 23 she is now a widow raising her daughter while finishing her final semester of law school. Her professor, Dr. Jordan Dubois also is raising a daughter who attends the same school as Mari’s daughter. The girls become fast friends and want to spend time together but due to no fraternization between teacher and student, the adults try to keep their distance but sparks are all around them... So much emotion, family support, infidelity in the past, passion, ups and downs and finding love when you least expect it...

Although Jordan is Mari's professor, he also sees her as woman, something he tries to fight. His daughter and hers are besties and they are really good at working their parents to get what they want, time together. Jordan and Mari get to know each other on a professional level and personal level and are drawn to each other. It's not the right thing to do but they can't seem to stay apart despite their best efforts. But when the mother of his child decides to show up, we learn more about him and just how complicated doing the right thing can be. These sisters are so close and always there to support each other! Each story has been a delight and a quick read. Looking forward to more! I received a complimentary copy and am voluntarily leaving my review.

Mariella is a young widow with a daughter, Lilly. She is also attending law school. Jordan is a visiting professor with a daughter, Yvette who becomes fast friends with Lilly. Mariella is also in Jordan’s highly sought after ethics class. I love how Kathryn Shay portrays the classroom, students’ interactions and assignments. She gets the teaching point across with some humor thrown in. However, as the story develops some serious issues are brought up. This story also brought tears for Mariella as she described her relationship with Lilly’s father as well as her current heartbreak. At the end I really wished the story would continue on as I enjoyed reading it so much. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Five stars for Kathryn Shay’s newest release.

Mariella Moretti is finishing her last semester of law school. Her professor is the renown Dr. Jordan Dubois. Although they realize there’s an attraction, they both acknowledge that it would not be appropriate to act on it while Mari’s his student. Unfortunately, their daughters are best friends, so they are becoming more and more involved in each other’s lives. That is until Jordan’s secrets are exposed, and Mari realizes they cannot have the life together she wants. This involves the tricky subject of infidelity, which may be difficult for some to accept, but it was handled in a compassionate manner, suiting the characters’ story. At times I found Jordan’s behavior frustrating because for such an intelligent man, he handled his situation poorly. Instead of getting out in front of the problem, he let himself be dragged behind, which ultimately could cost him his true happiness. It’s an engaging tale, filled with all the right elements: emotions, drama and steamy passion. Mari’s and Jordan’s daughters are endearing but a bit headstrong. There are moments when together their wills could be somewhat daunting. The characters are very well drawn and believable. It is a very entertaining read, which will hold your attention from beginning to end. My only true criticism is the ending was a little abrupt. I realize there’s another story yet to come, and the answers may be in that book, but I would have liked to know the outcome of Jordan’s issues in this one. Despite that one matter, I highly recommend this very good story and series.

This was an interesting story. It includes an age difference, questions regarding ethics, and sneaky daughters. The attraction between Mari and Jordan was instant and hard to deny. Their daughters, Lilliana and Yvette, want to be together as sisters and pout and whine their way to getting what they want. I enjoyed Mari's determination to succeed, Jordan's struggle against his better nature, and the antics of the girls. I recommend this book. I received an ARC through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Love Will Keep Us Together is the fifth book in The Gentileschi Sisters series and definitely worth reading. Love Will Keep Us Together is Jordan and Mariella's love story along with their two precocious little girls who are adored and loved deeply. Mariella and Jordan both had moved to the D.C. area to start over with a new lease on life. It was the perfect plan for Mariella because she had sisters in the area that she could spend time with and they could take care of Lilliana when needed. She and Jordan gravitated toward each other because they were lonely and because their daughters spent so much time together, but their relationship was going to complicate an already complicated situation and Jordan was afraid that in the process Mariella might get hurt. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this wonderful series. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
