*I actually read this in 2019 but for whatever reason I never finished my review so here goes.....
Lorenzo & Kira's story was my favorite of the series and I can say that now that I finished the last book. I enjoy Kira immensely, she knew she had her faults and she was trying to make up for them but when her father asked her to go undercover at De Santis Corporation as a spy she knew that she had to do it to gain his favor again. I hated that she felt that way because she was a kind person and never wanted to do any harm to anyone, she also suffered from ADHD which her parent ignored and didn't get her treatment for as a child.
Whereas Lorenzo was a bit of a hard @$$, since he came off bullheaded all the time he really needed Kira to soften his hard sides. Lorenzo believes his father killed his mother so he is determined to figure out what his father is doing with the company when there is a discrepancy with the accounting books. Caesar de Santis is not the tuck your kids into bed and read them a bedtime story type of father so there is a lot of hurt and anger when it comes to Lorenzo's past.
This is the third book in the Billionaire Fairy Tales Series which follows the four de Santis brothers, each of the books can be read as a standalone. Start from the beginning or jump in now it doesn't matter because each story focuses on one brother and it doesn't end on a cliffhanger.
If you enjoy Fairy Tale Retelling's, Age Gap Romances, or Steamy Contemporary Romances then this is a book for you.
**I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**
The romance was one sided for many years on Kira's end. There is a huge age gap of 13 years which isn't something I personally liked but it also didn't negatively effect the story. It sort of added to the background of these two characters. It took many years for Lorenzo to move on from is past and see that it is okay to love and that everyone deserves a second chance, Kira included. All in all, it was a pretty good read!
But what did I get from this one?
Well, this was a quick read - on my reading device it was 168 pages which was easily devoured in a day.
What's the breakdown though?
Lorenzo is a billionaire who works at the family company - DS Corps. where he is trying to bring his father down because allegedly he is stealing from the company - in comes a corporate spy who happens to be the daughter of one of the men who works in the company and is linked to Lorenzo's past. Kira is to be his intern - which is curious because he doesn't take them on.
Cue drama llama.
Right off the bat there seems to be some heat accumulating which seemed a little over the top for me, chemistry is one thing but it just seemed to be a little too much too soon. Kira has ADHD - which is mentioned quite frequently and it served as an annoying element which I'll get to later on.
As far as characters go I felt like Lorenzo had some potential for depth but it was skimmed over so he could take on the alpha male role. Kira was absent minded, fidgety [because of the ADHD...,] and I didn't take to her character so much, she didn't leap out or grab my attention in any fashion. Neither one of them experiences much character growth which was a little upsetting for me - because while I enjoy romance/smut I also enjoy good character development or if nothing else a good plot/story.
The ending seemed abrupt and rushed. As I said before I really did enjoy the other Ashenden book I read, but this one just felt rushed, not as tidy. Characters [for me,] weren't as likable.
For example, Lorenzo says to Kira not too far into the book, as he is forcing her to couple with him,
"Prove yourself and then I'll decide if I want you."
In regard to her internship at the company. He belittles her, controls her, strips rights away - dominating her without the perks of a submissive - safety, assurance, etc.
Along side that, the ADHD portion bugged me. It came across as Kira's ADHD could be cured by a dominant's willpower - which structure certainly does help, but saying "Still" is much like telling an Epileptic to stop seizing.
Overall, this was an "OK" read for me. It was quick, but those few issues are what made it just an okay read.

Once again this book needed a copy editor and a proofreader. Many missing words and mistakes such as: "How dare she do that him!" instead of "How dare she do that TO him"
