Can arranged marriages work? Is there any love at all? Well at first you would think that Gabriella and Lorenzo were not going to work out. But Lorenzo has always been drawn to Gabriella. Gabriella doesn’t want to be somebody’s charity case. She makes that very obvious. But soon things start to happen and they may realize they are meant for each other. I don’t want to give away too much. It was a nice and short read but a good story. Who doesn’t love some mob action mixed with romance? I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!
