BOOK REVIEW- RECKLESS NIGHTS IN ROME by CC Mackenzie
Reckless Nights in Rome is a hot romance with a glittering cast of characters...
He's wealthy, devastatingly handsome, Italian, and ruthless, but one woman is refusing to give in to his demands in an unforgettable story from a queen of romance: CC MACKENZIE.
With the life he's led and the money he's made, Nico Ferranti is used to possessing his heart's desire. Except he shouldn't desire his best friend's little sister. Fact is, Bronte Ludlow is a blue blood and he's a street-rat made good. She deserves better than one night of pleasure, and that's all he's prepared to offer any woman, until Bronte's brother is badly hurt in a car accident in Rome. When Nico whisks her away to the Eternal City, it leads to the most intimate night of his life.
Good girl falls for the bad boy. It's a torrid tale that seldom ends in a happy ending. But Bronte knows he is worth fighting for and takes matters into her own hands. Regardless of how he views himself, the Nico she knows is kind, brave and a loyal friend. But as past lies and present-day secrets collide, they are both about to learn there are consequences to a reckless night neither can escape...AMAZON 4 STARS
Lots of action and drama with really good main and secondary characters. Rosie, Bronte's best friend is one of those good, fun secondary people. There are several stories going on inside the main one, which is good without being confusing.
Bronte literally HATES the ground that Nico walks on and she hadn't even met him yet. But she has encountered some of his ideas that she is vehemently against. It has to do with how it impacts her family heritage. It doesn't help that her brother Alexander praises him to the sky; which doesn't help anything at all. It's just one more thing that they are arguing about. They used to be so close, although they love each other they also can't seem to agree about anything. Bronte now lives and has her business in The Dower House. The house has been part of her family's holdings for years and she's keeping it that way. But Nico wants to buy it too and even if he is a business partner with her brother, she's not having it.
I have to say that the first chapter starts out dramatically and so does the first meeting between Nico and Bronte.
Be warned though, when sex begins to happen there is going to be quite a bit of it.
One thing that I thought was underdeveloped was that when some people came out of Nico's past, there were some questions that were left unanswered.
There is a eventual H.E.A. and no cliffhangers though, so that was good.
I would like to see what happens with Rosie though, does she have her own story? And is it possible that it's with Alexander? Now that could be interesting. Oh wait, I just went and checked. It's there on Amazon already in Book 3 called, "Run Rosie Run."
