Quinn Kingsley prefers his solitude above all else. His brothers are all settled in their married lives but the thoughts of love, marriage and eternity have never crossed his mind. Until he meets Alessandra, his new Italian tutor. She might be years younger than him but he doesn’t care. The attraction he feels is instantaneous and the more time he spends with her the deeper he falls. The only problem; she is leaving for Italy indefinitely and he has no way of stopping her.

Alessandra has finally gotten her life on track. Soon she’ll be leaving for Italy to fulfill her dreams. Nothing can deter her from her vision except maybe Quinn. He is too charming, too sexy, too suave for her young years but she feel exhilarated every time she is in his proximity. She can’t stop her reaction towards his flirtations so she decides to go with the flow. Now the conundrum she faces is whether to give up her dreams or give up her dream man?

This was a fast paced story with amazing sexy moments between Quinn and Alessandra. Their chemistry and connection was palpable at first sight. I enjoyed their banter and God Quinn is a master at dirty bilingual flirtation. It was so exciting to see the eldest Kingsley finally get his happily ever after. I adored the way the story flowed and it was a beautiful love story.

Still, I felt as if I couldn’t really connect to either of these characters. I kept comparing Quinn to the other two Kingsleys’, specially my favourite, Cooper. I just wanted more angst and torment from Quinn. I know that’s borderline stupid but I wanted Quinn to rage a little.

The story is nonetheless worth the read. And OHMYGOD we get another book after this. I’m too pumped for words.

3.5 Stars!!

She’s the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.

She’s way too young for me, but she’s also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.

It’s fucking adorable.

I’m old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.

Is this what it’s like to be pursued by an older man? The complete confidence, the lack of expectations, the sincerity?

My God, it’s exhilarating.

Quinn Kinglsey is totally unexpected. I’m moving to Italy in three weeks to teach English, and while I never expected something so real to develop between us so quickly, our chemistry is explosive.

There’s something so sexy about this back and forth he and I share. Flirting with this man is like playing with fire, and I’m bound to get burned.

Io sono attratto da te I’m attracted to you, he tells me.

But is our attraction enough to get us through the complications of a massive age gap and an international love affair? Only one way to find out…

This is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.
