Gio is blessed with a big family and lots of friends. Unfortunately, there’s an unspoken code amongst his buddies…one where sisters are off-limits. That wouldn’t be a problem if he and his best friend, Rafe, could stop thinking about Kayden’s vivacious, fun-loving little sister, Keeley. They have always been stand-up guys, but Keeley is so tempting, so sexy, that they’re in danger of breaking all the rules.
Keeley’s not exactly batting a thousand when it comes to life. She just lost her job and her only true talent seems to be picking the worst guys on the planet from online dating sites. However, her uneventful life takes a turn for the steamy after Rafe hires her to work for him and he and Gio start crashing all her bad dates.
When one kiss lead to a second and then to something much, much more, the lovers are left to decide if they’re engaging in a fun fling or embarking on forever.
Could they open up their hearts to love and forever?
Rough and Ready is the third book in the Italian Stallions series, but could be read as a stand alone. Keeley has the worst dating record, but has always had a crush on her brother’s best friends, Gio and Rafe. After a storm leads to a kiss, an attraction runs wild between the three of them. Could they open up their hearts to love and forever, or will their affair be over before they’re ready?
Oh my goodness, this book was so good! I loved the dynamic between Keeley, Gio, and Rafe! They had some amazing passion, but everything they had was rooted in this strong friendship, which made their connection that much better. Keeley just wanted to find love, wanted to share her life with others, and could barely believe it when kisses from her crushes could turn into something so much more. I really liked her character, with her optimism, her playful side, and the way she didn’t back down from a challenge. Gio and Rafe were two sides of the same coin. Where one was bold, the other was cautious. When one was impulsive, the other had to think every action through. One couldn’t wait to dive into love, while the other didn’t believe he could ever love in the first place. They all fit together perfectly, in and out of the bedroom, and how adventurous they ended up being, but they had to convince their heads that what they were feeling was love and that what they wanted was forever with each other. I thought this was an amazing book! I am loving this series and am so excited for the next book!
