The ending of an unhealthy relationship leaves Lexi Reed damaged, broken and alone. Fighting against self-doubt and an unsupportive family she runs away to Europe in an effort to not only heal but to discover who she is.
Settling in Rome had never been the plan but when the opportunity presented itself Lexi rolled with the punches. Lexi doesn't believe in a happily-ever-after, instead she enjoys the spoils of the majestic city and the many men that crossed her path, vowing to never again give away her heart.
When Lexi flirts with Riccardo Cassius, a good-looking stranger, she has no idea that he is the youngest son of one of the wealthiest and most influential families in all of Rome. The knowledge that he was “off-limits” inciting her desire for him further. Just one night, that’s all she asked. What Lexi hadn’t counted on was Riccardo’s unwillingness to let her walk away.
Rebelling against his conservative upper class family and the crazy relationship rules she has imposed, Riccardo fights to keep Lexi in his life and defy the odds. How far will each of them go? Will Lexi allow Riccardo into her heart or is she destined to break his?
Lexi is a standalone novella in the Lexi Series. The prequel to A Twist of Fate, it delves into Lexi’s past and explores how she evolved into the impulsive, feisty woman who doesn't allow other’s ideals to define her
Strong character, but not for long
Tucking tail and running when stuff gets hard and not facing your problems does not make a strong woman. The ending ruined this whole book. It was a good read up until the last chapter or two.
I rarely give books five stars but
This is the first character I've identified with in a really long time. I love her sense of adventure.
(I hate writing reviews without commenting on the ending, but I'm not about to ruin it for you guys!)
What happens to Riccardo and Stefania?
Does this not drive anyone else insane? I would have loved to know what happens to them, otherwise I thought it was a great read and kept me hooked until the last two chapters where I couldn't believe that Stefania would have her own chapter and yet speak/think the same way Lexi does and with no messed up phrases (Stefania is infamous for those)
Either way it was nice to get a different look of this strong woman where she isn't so strong and just starting to figure things out for herself and her career, more power to the author for expressing pure femininity!
