The challenge: to leave your billionaire lifestyle behind for two weeks…
Italian tycoon Antonio Di Marcello relishes a challenge–but running into Sadie Parker while undercover as a mechanic rocks him to the core. Four years after their fevered fling stripped away his iron guard, he’s confronted with the shocking consequences…
Sadie gave up hope on her desperate attempts to contact Antonio. Now she has to face the day she’s both dreaded and longed for! Yet Antonio’s claim over her and her son is hard to resist–especially because he’ll use a sensual onslaught to get what he wants!
I love the concept behind Di Marcello’s Secret Son by Rachael Thomas, the first book in The Secret Billionaire series. It is a fresh, satisfying story and the entertainment level will leave you awed…in a good way! The author leads you on a riveting journey from chapter one with picturesque prose and scintillating passion simmering between the pages. Of the two main characters, I found the hero to be my favorite. Antonio Di Marcello charmed me the moment he took up the ‘challenge’ which set him to live a life without his wealth. There were moments which I found hilarious and moments when he grated on my nerves. Yet all in all, he proved himself to be strong, bold and commanding—everything I adore in a Presents hero. Sadie Parker is a smart, sexy woman and having Antonio back in her life meant she has a choice to tell him the secret she has been keeping from him. I found Sadie’s attitude towards Antonio to be tense but the real issue lies with the deep, emotional conflict boiling between them. Of course the fire which burned between Antonio and Sadie in the past has never died and the lick of flames which engulf them now is hotter than ever!
Overall, Di Marcello’s Secret Son is a compelling and deeply satisfying read. And I can’t wait to devour the other stories!
