Not bad for a beach read or when you want something light with minimal plot and lots of drama with steamy sex scenes.

let me back up and first say that i nearly stopped reading this story six times. it was extremely difficult to complete, and what really drove me wasn't the plot itself, but rather the desire to give an honest review.
i think one reviewer used the word 'tedious' to describe the progression, and that is apt. the pov switches characters from one paragraph to the next and while it isn't the WORST i've seen, that type of inconsistency is very distracting. assuming the inconsistency is deliberately trying to accomplish something (moving the plot along, for example), i'd have to say it isn't successful. along those same lines, the passage of time is uneven. a day may stretch several pages then a month of activity is accomplished in a few paragraphs. and mind you, there is nothing wrong with such a technique in the hands of a skilled author, but here it just seems amateurish.
the real rub for me is that the entire story was on the edge of being good. the characters need to be fleshed out so that you can sympathize with them or hate them or love them or feel whatever it is you want to feel about them. it is really hard to do that at present, because the characters are so flat. the author does a lot of telling, and that's too bad, because a lot of the dialogue and actions don't make sense. whatever reasoning processes a character goes through happen right there on the page, and while this may not sound like a big deal, when you don't have the context or filter of a well-defined character, it just tends to be totally unbelievable. or, if you will, a poorly-defined character becomes projected onto the reader for him to interpret through his own filter rather than the one the author crafted. the result can end up being something totally unbelievable (as i previously stated), depending on the reader.
thankfully, grammatical errors were at a minimum, but i'd say there were still too many for a published (and supposedly edited) work.
all in all, before i'd recommend this to anyone to read, i'd want the author to spend some (more) time with her characters. the bare bones are here in desperate need of some fattening.
Overall, author Kimberley Reeves impressed me with this novel! She is a great new voice in the romance genre and definitely one to look out for! I've already downloaded five of her other works & cannot wait to read them. Highly recommend Vittorio's Mistress for those looking to get lost in a light, sexy, and romantic novel.
I agree with another reviewer that it is everything that a romance should be. The misundestandings...the actual feelings involved instead of only the chemistry...the part that the minor characters play...that things are not resolved too quick or too slow...the devilish guy who's actually a good guy at heart...etc etc etc. :)
I loved how the secret was revealed...so different than usual. I also loved how the guy handled it...also different than usual. I loved the part with the guy's family at the end...and that it didn't simply end when the characters got together. I loved how the perspective of the guy changed over the course of the story.
I loved the whole thing...and would definitely read more books by this author...and more books like this one.
