Boutique owner Kimber DiSanto has seen better days. She’s been dumped at the altar by Prince Charmless, her business went up in flames (literally), and now she’s stuck in Florence, Italy, with an ice-queen stepmother, to try to save her late father’s failing dress shop. Only one thing could make it worse: another man in her life. The arrogant Italian fashion tycoon offering to buy her father’s shop is as rich as he is sexy, and their attraction is off the charts. But Kimber’s not about to get burned again.
Women don’t say no to Matteo Moretti—and certainly not with Kimber’s stinging precision. With all the heat and fury sparking between them, Matteo can’t resist baiting the gorgeous American. His plan? Win her over one scorching kiss at a time.
Kimber tells herself it’s all just a game. That her broken heart isn’t in danger, and that Matteo’s touch does not make her Lady Land dance with joy. But sometimes it takes the fieriest of enemies to turn a fantasy into a real-life romance.
4 Star Review by Ashley
Not sure what boulder I've been living under that Ache for You is my first book from J.T. Geissinger because I've been missing out. I was hooked from the first chapter.
I loved Kimber's fire and determination. Quirky and creative, she was down on her luck that's for sure. If it could've gone wrong, it did. But she never counted herself out. She pushed aside her hurt and pain and focused on the thing she could control, her work. Too bad that work brings her face to face with the talk, dark and sexily suited Matteo. I loved that the thicker he tried to lay on the charm, the harder she pushed back.
Cue the animosity and tension. You could feel it bubbling. I knew it was only a matter of time before it exploded into something electric. And boy when Kimber and Matteo finally gave it, it was explosive.
This was far from your typical enemies-to-lovers romance. Ache For You had layers of depth and heart. And a not so evil stepmother. Both characters were focused and flawed. Kimber knew when to dig her heels in and when to admit defeat. Luckily, Matteo was able to breakdown her walls and get her to see the power of compromise. And that ending....swooooon city. It was so romantic and perfectly them.
