Review: The Billionaire's Temptation (Amalfi Night Billionaires Book 1) by Katherine Garbera

Book Blurb:

Rocco De Luca lives and loves in the fast lane. A past Formula 1 champ, he has been jetting around the world arranging celebrity charity races and partying with the world’s elite. Coming home to Isola del Fiori and filling in for his older brother for a few weeks sounds…well, boring. Until he meets Steffi Harlan. 

Steffi Harlan is sophisticated, elegant, and way too smart to fall for a tanned chest and a bad-boy smile, or so she thinks, until she’s put in charge of keeping the jet-set playboy out of trouble while he’s gone. Sure, no problem. Except Steffi isn’t immune to Rocco’s charms. 

They burn up the nights they spend together, and the last thing Steffi wants is to crash out and end up with a broken heart… Can they both survive love in the fast lane? 

My Review:

The Billionaire's Temptation is a spicy, fast paced, great introduction to the Amalfi Night Billionaires Book series.  Katherine does a great job with this plot, showing that assumptions can be hurtful...and wrong!  There is a lot going on under the surface of people, especially someone like Rocco.

Steffi is very happy in her job, her place in life right now.  She has no desire to get involved with anyone like Rocco...even if he does make her think thoughts she shouldn't be thinking about him.  Rocco is just as enchanted by Steffi and even though they believe in different things, their wants might be more in tune with each others than even they'd have though.  Even though they must work together, Rocco thinks Steffi is worth pursuing, and that he does.  The push and pull, insecurities in both of them, and those assumptions make their journey a very bumpy one.  When they finally give in and things sizzle when they are together, Steffi is still convinced there is no future and that Rocco will never settle down.  Will Rocco believe Steffi is worth the risk of proving her wrong?  Or will both of them get their hearts broken?

I liked the setting and general plot of The Billionaire's Temptation.  I liked the background's and inner thoughts I was privy to as a reader, and Katherine did a great job of bringing Steffi and Rocco to life.

The secondary characters also spiked my curiosity, but in no way did they distract from the book. They just added so much more depth and reality!

I am really looking forward to the continuation of this series, and am happy that they will be released fairly close together!

I'd recommend The Billionaire's Temptation to any romance ready who likes some spice and sauciness in their books!

4/5 stars
