The Wedding Charade by Melanie Milburne



Her trust fund is dwindling. If Jade Sommerville is to continue living in the manner she's become accustomed to, she has only one option…make the notorious Nic Sabbatini marry her!

The youngest of the Sabbatini brothers, Nic doesn't suffer fools, or respond well to ultimatums—especially those in his grandfather's will! But when the stunning, willful Jade breezes into his office and announces their upcoming nuptials to the world's media, Nic might have finally met his match.

He's turned Jade down once before. But this time?

The Sabbatini Brother's.....three powerful playboys from the richest dynasty in Europe! Ruthless, irresistible....impossible to tame?" The above doesn't even describe Nic Sabbatini. Like his brother's he's sexy as sin and mad as hell because his grandfather made provisions in his will, ones that include a red haired siren by the name off Jade Summerville. A young woman desperate because her trust fund has been cut off. A young woman who wants the money now because Nic's grandfather wanted to see them married and to receive the money depended upon them getting married by a certain date. So what does she do when Nic throws her out of his office? She follows him to Venice, posed as his fiance and leaked it to the press. What a little vixen I thought and a brilliant one at that because they had to stay married for a year. She could do this or could she? As Nic pointed out when she was sixteen she'd had a crush on Nic and he had turned her down. What was it that his grandfather saw in her to want this union to take place. Would Nic agree to this sort of marriage, I wondered? Would he fall for her like his brother's fell for their wives? Well they did get married with family and friends in attendance and settled into the family villa. The same villa where the Sabbatini baby girl had passed away at an early age from crib death. A lot of bad memories for their mother and his two older brother's. When Nic finally realized everything said about Jade by the press was false and also realized how much he wanted her in his bed, their relationship moved forward. They dined out, he realized how talented she was as an artist, he encouraged her to do something with her talent. Nic couldn't seem to get enough of Jade and he began to realize one of the most important things about Jade. Due to loosing her mother at such a young age and the death of her brother in later years and a father who did nothing to encourage her, who only mourned the loss of his son, all Jade wanted was to be loved. He also realized something else, when they finally divorced, who would be around to protect her? However, most importantly, who would protect her? And then like a lightening bolt, her realized she had been carrying around a secret, one that had also shaped her life, she couldn't read. He realized this in the end, when she asked to take some time away from him and go to London. He had missed her and it made him think that his crafty grandfather by putting them together had done it for a reason. He had hoped that Jade and Nic would fall in love. When Nic realized he had always loved Jade and gave her all of the explanations for not wanting to be vulnerable, trust me, have a box of tissues ready. The Wedding Charade and Jade and Nic's story will melt your heart. Melanie Milburne did such an incredible job with this three book series.Giorgio, Luca and Nic's individual stories were amazing.

Review by Desere Review originally posted at Romancing the Book In the third and final book of the Sabbatini Brothers Series by Melanie Milburne we meet the young,sexy and feisty Nic Sabbatini and the spunky "tart" Jade. Nic and Jade are old but not great family friends,who after a fall out have not spoken to each other in years. See when Jade was 16 she came onto Nic hot, heavy and strong but he in no uncertain terms merely turned her down. She in turn vows to show him what he will be missing and turns into the ultimate party girl. Years later Nic's grandfather has decided Nic and Jade are to get married in order for them both to inherit a large sum of money, Jade has no option but to face the insufferable Nic face to face, even though she knows facing him again will only bring back the painful memories and her love for him again. So she confronts him,but Nic has his reasons for not wanting to marry this snobby "tart" after all she did sleep with is best friend and he finds her lifestyle totally disgusting. A woman who cant make her own money but instead relies on others whilst sleeping around and partying every night, just does not turn him on at all. But Jade needs the money very desperately more than anyone knows and more than she is willing to reveal. Nic sees her as a money-grabbing, gold-digging, sleeps with any and every man kind of woman, and she sees him as the man she never should have fallen and exposed herself to. But in the end Nic realises that he cant loose any part of the Sabbatini fortune and they do decide to marry for the sake of the money. But with the condition that Jade becomes a respectable lady as he does not want his wife to be flashed across newspapers leaving the homes of strange men. Along the first weeks of their marriage Nic and Jade's attraction to each other builds and builds and finally erupts with the hot passion we have come to know from Melanie Milburne. But behind closed bedroom doors Nic discovers the real Jade, and he begins to understand why she pretends to be someone she is not. Now it all comes down to if Nic will let Jade go after their arranged 1 year of marriage or will he fall as hard for her as she has for him from day one all those years ago? In the final book of the Sabbatini Brothers Series Melanie Milburne shows us that not everything is as it seems and when you do not know the real person don't go judging them. The book compliments the first and second to down to a tee. The entire series is one of hope, love, trust, true identity, secrets and pure passion.

I loved that the hero ended up with the beautiful rich socialite. Her character is usually the antagonist in other romance stories; the rich, beautiful, bi..h. It's beautiful to read about a heroin that is not ashamed nor embarrased to parade herself confidantly in front of the hero, naked or otherwise. Love, love, love it.
