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.
The last thing Brie Gentileschi wants is to deal with someone who reminds her of her kidnapping last year. But when Dante Federico comes on as the new gym teacher in her school, she keeps flashing back to an event that could have ruined her life.
Flummoxed by fourth grade teacher Gabriella Gentileschi’s cold shoulder, Dante has never had to deal with her kind of animosity. He’s just your all-around guy, looking to get along with his colleagues, teach little ones to stay fit and live a normal life.
But when Dante discovers a young student in need of help, he and Brie must work together for the welfare of the child. Who knew he’d be the one, not all the counseling and yoga she’s done, to help her heal from her wounds? Their journey will make readers ache for both of them.
Don’t miss this charming six-book series of novellas: I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, THIS GUY’S IN LOVE, CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE?, LOVE WILL KEEP US TOGETHER and I THINK I LOVE YOU!

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a quick sweet read. (Quick because I couldn't put it down.) This story is wonderful in showing how a relationship takes work and both give and take. Both Brie and Dante are teachers at the same school. Brie had been kidnapped and after a year in therapy is a stronger more independent person. Dante lost his father while he was in high school. That left him as the only man of the house with a mother and two older sisters. Being half-Italian and watching over his family, he becomes over-protective. Brie doesn't like that about him as she has come so far. Some mysterious things start to happen and Dante can't overcome his protective nature. Can Brie and Dante work through their issues? Is Brie being stalked or just the victim of several unfortunate incidents?
The story has multiple POVs here. I love that. It is wonderful to see how different characters think and why they reacted and speak in such manner. Also prior characters make several appearance.
I loved how the plot flowed and the characters interacted. There were times when I thought Brie was being little difficult which totally isn't in the character's nature but again how her POV shown really helped me to understand her more clearly.
I highly recommend this book, really the entire series.
HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE
School teachers Brie and Dante, leaving she bumps into his car truck. She has spent sixteen months getting her confidence and self image back. She could do this, saying she would pay for the damages. He only wanted to have coffee for a week in the school. She still insisted to pay for damages. A student with a sensitive nature would be coming, and Brie and Dante would be working with the student. The other teachers were advised to look for any bullying, teasing that might go on. The author handled a sensitive subject very well. Another good story and to this series. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
How deep is Your love
ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars
How Deep is Your Love is book 4 in the Gentileschi Sisters series by Kathryn Shay and was my first book to read in this series! While a standalone it took a little to understand Brie’s problem with Dante... but didn’t take away from the amazing story!!
This story deals with stalking, bullying, sexual predator and his child’s emotions, kidnapping aftermath, romance, steamy and protective instincts. It will keep you turning the pages wondering what will happen next...love Ms. Shay’s books!!
