They’ve known each other for years…
Born and raised on adjacent family vineyards, and inseparable since childhood, there’s not much Belle Davis and Dante Casellati don’t know about each other. That crush Belle had on him in her teens? Dante knows about it. Dante’s confirmed bachelor stance? Belle’s heard it all before. And each believes the other is happy with the status quo.
Used to pushing aside her own dreams and desires out of duty to her ailing mother, Belle dismisses all hope of her and Dante ever being in the same place at the same time emotionally, until Dante’s prodigal brother returns to Kurrajong Crossing and makes a play for her. Dante’s jealousy finally prompts him to act on the attraction to Belle he’s been ignoring for years. Taking their relationship one step further, life is bliss…until tragedy strikes Belle’s family. As tensions rise and hope of a happy outcome fades fast, Belle’s guilt estranges her and Dante for the first time in their lives.
Can they salvage their love, or will harsh words and the fear of truly letting one another in ruin everything?
My Review:So I have never read anything by this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I did find the overall story a good and quick read. I did also feel like the characters in this story acted way younger then the author said there ages were. I liked Daunte and his family, but I felt like he didn’t know what he wanted out of life. He seemed to not really have a care in the world yet he did care for those closest to him and would do anything for them. I liked Belle however I did find her on the immature side, she just wanted to live a little but act like someone in there 20’s. I did feel like she had the whole world on her shoulders and didn’t know what or how to truly handle it. There is adult content in this book so it may not be suitable for all readers. Overall this was a fun read!
