Abby--dedicated to her family and an independent woman who made a name for herself.
Dante--Cocky, loyal, and determined. Love the combination.Read more ›
After three years Abby Taylor needs a huge favor from her husband Conte Dante Lombardi, she needs help with medical expenses for her grandmother. So, she returns to ask; she wouldn't ask if him she could avoid all possibility.
Dante is too prideful to ask his wife to return on home. No, he has to blackmail her home. All he asks in return are to warm his bed and provide an heir. No big deal there, right?
Alright my thoughts: At first I didn't like Dante, even though he's handsome, charming and rich. I really wanted to slap the crap out of him (more like deck him). Whenever Abby is around he tends to hide his charming side. I couldn't understand why he didn't want to share part of his heart with Abby. The answer came out in the story, but I still didn't understand the reasoning. Granted it would be the typical male thing to do. I felt bad for Abby at times. Yes, she so was young when they were married and Dante just couldn't understand the things she did. There was a lot of lack of comunication between Dante and Abby.
However, I really did like the story. I love how Abby sacrifice her pride for family. I also love how after three years she had grown up and was able to stand up to Dante. At times my heart did break for Abby and Dante. I'm not going to lie, towards the end I had tears streaming down my face for them. Seriously, enjoyed The Reluctant Wife. So, I hope you might get a chance to check this story out and I hope you have a wonderful day.
But, he never really forgotten Abby - he didn't want to forget her - and he has reasons why he would much rather remain married than go through with a divorce. So he strikes a deal with Abby; he'll give her the money she needs for her Grandmother's surgery, and in exchange she'll stay with him in Italy and they'll resume where they left off 3 years ago.
Abby isn't happy with this arrangement, but she'll do just about anything for her Gran - who is her only surviving relative - so she agrees, plus, deep down, she never really stopped loving Dante, even if his obsession with having a child as soon as possible is very annoying.
Second Glance: Okay, so Abby married Dante when she was only 19 years old - he was in late twenties- early thirties - afte a whirlwind courtship and a society wedding. But their marriage didn't last long as Abby was really unprepared to be a wife at that age, and she certainly wasn't ready to be a mother.
Dante is a bit obsessed with his own mortality -both his grandfather and father died fairly young - and he knows he needs to have a son soon, as in his mind time is running out, both because he wants to be a father and because it would secure his family's future.
This was a fairly standard story, it had a bit of old-school category romance which was nice in it's own way. There weren't any big surprises or amazing character development but it was OK. The beginning was pretty entertaining and before I knew it I was almost done.Read more ›
