    A second chance MOC romance that features the author's most hostile heroine paired with her most sensitive hero I felt bad for the hero at times; heroine even publicly humiliated him at their marriage ceremony YikesWhich is saying a lot because most of her heroines armor themselves in that way but I still like themHeroine fell in love with hero as a teenager but was terrified he'd discover her secret especially since he'd already rejected her after she'd tried seducing him when she was just 15 and after they were pressured into a marriage of convenience The affluent hero married heroine to comply with his deceased mother's wish Orphaned heroine married the hero to repay her moral and fiscal obligation back to her godmother hero's mother Additionally the resources she would acuire through the marriage would help to add comfort to her cousin's sickly husband's life The present timeline begins after a one year separation with heroine and hero living in different countries Heroine has never given their marriage a chance until hero finally forces a reunion Hero had previously tried to make the marriage work and had been attracted to the then nineteen year old heroine when he'd come to propose If I recall correctly I think this is when hero fell in love with her tooHowever during the separation hero had an affair because he'd been feeling hurt angry and disappointed after heroine had repeatedly rejected his overtures He did regret his mistake thankfully but could have expressed shame in that regret At the same time I still empathized with him as it helped tremendously to receive his point of view The story ends with heroine and hero reconciling but with no miracle baby as the heroine is infertile I normally don't need an epilogue but this book could have used one as the journey to the HEA had been pretty rough while the HEA itself felt realistic and bittersweet It's certainly possible to be happy without children but receiving some reassurance to let readers know they were doing fine would have been nice An angsty compelling romance which should be read with one's favorite treat or two to soften the emotional lows

    If you want conflict here is conflictIf you want two people forced into a marriage they didn't want but were attracted to each other here it isIf you want miscommunication and a brutal first time Sara Craven deliversIf you want a hero who cheats out of spite this one is for youIf you want a bitchy heroine who goes out of her way to humiliate the hero during their wedding well cringe awayIf you like an infertility story that doesn't end in a miracle baby but the hero shows his love by sticking by her then you'll be happy to know that these two imperfect characters finally realized what they had together and it had nothing to do with baby makingA lot of readers will hate this story what with the cheating and no baby and a bitchy heroine but I found it rather compelling Not for the faint of heart

    This was a fairly angsty book The hero did something that angered me but I was able to keep reading it The heroine didn't always act very mature herself But there are circumstances that made me want to keep reading and see them for flawed human beings It started when Marisa and Lorenzo's mothers were friends in boarding school They promised that their children would marry each other Years later both Marisa and Lorenzo have this promise hanging over each other's heads Not to mention that Marisa feels indebted to Lorenzo's family for taking care of her when she is orphaned She doesn't find this out until her nasty cousin and guardian tells her after she has gone on a date with another manI could understand Marisa's resentment towards Lorenzo Who wants to marry a guy who clearly doesn't want her but is doing so because of a promise made between their mothers? Lorenzo tries to woo her in a distant fashion but he doesn't really show the warmth and reassurance a young awkward girl would need Things just get worse when they get married Pretty soon they are living apartThat's when Lorenzo does the stupid thing that made me want to slap him He sleeps with a married lady out of hurt pride because Marisa won't take his calls or answer his letters I tried to be fair and put myself in his place but I felt it was wrong to cheat on his wife He should have just went to England to find her and work things out Finally he does this when his father has a health scare and he gets a report that Marisa might be seeing her boss So he convinces Marisa to come back home as his wife Things really don't get better from here They are both stubborn and emotional and don't know how to communicate It was uite frustrating to read Then we find out that Marisa might not be able to fulfill her obligations in the first place That was really painfulI felt this was a good book and it really did get me involved The ending is bittersweet but hopeful as they make a commitment to love each other for the rest of their livesI'd actually give this book 35 out of 5 stars

    Give this a total skip I can't get over how much crap she puts up with and then goes back to that piece of slime So what she can't have kids she is still a human and he should treat her better and be so forceful Another rich guy who can't keep it in his pants For once I wish the woman would cheat and he would have to deal with it Always the woman who forgives and forget Well she should have forgotten him and taken him for a total ride in court to expose him

    Sara Craven's The Santangeli Marriage has some of my most detested tropes both thematically adultery manwhore gets the virgin and style wise flashbacks dual POVs It is a testament to the author'skills as a story teller that this book did not make me want to throw up It was instead oddly compelling Though I did not connect with the protagonists of this tortured marriage of convenience story I stood back and admired the way SC managed to set up the story and both characters in the first two chapters without resorting to massive info dump how she smoothly transitioned from present to past without abruptly pushing me out of the story and how she conveyed similar scenes from the dueling perspectives of the protagonists without seeming repetitiveHer books may not be my cuppa in general but I understand why she is the reigning ueen of HPlandia with a devoted following I could not put this book down which is rare for me as I have the attention span of a suirrel The ending was extremely romantic and poignant view spoilerh runs away when she finds out she is infertile and H finds her at her secret spot of a beautifulhaunted villa on the Amalfi Coast hat he has always known about and secretly bought for her to declare his unconditional love hide spoiler

    Another I'm a bit torn on rating 35 stars I supposeI've complained uite a bit about the sameness of many SC books and this one didn't follow the usual path No misguided vengeance for one thing although I do love vengeance stories There was the typical SC flashback style of storytelling and a heroine who is determined to lie still and think of England because she doesn't want to be vulnerable I really do get that in the vengeance stories but despite some very understandable reasoning being vulnerable to a womanizer the h did annoy me somewhat with her flip flopping She was very young 19 when they married and it showed She behaved like a moody teen and a foot stomping martyr at times I was torn between sympathy and wanting to tell her to suck it up No one held a gun to her head and she decided to play martyr instead of expecting a medal and acting so bitter she should have stuck to her word and uit sulking and kicking her feet She couldn't have it both waysThe H had negatives too of course mostly the typical HP tycoon crap though I was a bit shocked that he had an affair with a married woman during the separation I don't like affairs during the separation period but have learned to take them as par for the course in HP land Still double adultery? I thought these guys were usually above messing with married women After all they supposedly have an old school attitude toward the institution Meaning they can overlook a man getting some on the side but have firm sanctimonious double standards about taking another man's propertyThe ending was definitely a different SC HEA ending at least from my experience I was actually a little emotionally affected and was shocked that view spoiler there was no epilogue where the h has a miracle pregnancy Usually HP s that deal with fertility issues wrap a nice bow around it at the end So even though the H wants the h regardless there's always that epilogue to sort of reverse the meaning behind the H's commitmentpoiler hide spoiler

    2 12 stars A similar feel to the last Sara Craven I read His Wedding Night Heir At least in this one she has some reason to not be trustful of him when the marriage starts he really did have a mistress He gets his feelings hurt and treats her appallingly badly on their wedding night He then realizes that he has done a pretty unforgivable thing and compounds his error by leaving her alone instead of trying to fix it Here again she is spiteful to her husband in order to protect herself and only earns worse pain for herself as her husband retreats hurt He never figures out that a lot of her sniping is jealousy She is a little wiser though because she realizes that she is just hurting herself and goes to him and makes the marriage work while accepting that while he might not love her he does of course that at least if she acts like a wife she will have some part of him A lot of flashbacks here And thankfully a realistic ending that isn't resolved with a cute but improbable baby

    “Besides what was there for you to explain—apart from the fact that you’re a serial womaniser who can’t keep his zip fastened?” That’s why I’ve hated H and why I didn’t believe him when he said “Because all the love that I have is for you I see no one else hear no other voice want only you” He was shagging a married woman while he was supposedly in love with hSara Craven was great writer and angst was good but unfortunately H was not redeemed There should be epic grovel Instead SC tried to convince the readers that like h and H's step motherish woman thought it was h's fault

    OMG That was just awful I'm sorry but it was I wasn't sure heroine could be stupid or unbearable And so full of misconceptions I was really sorry for the hero The only reason I finished it was cause I couldn't bear to leave it hanging on me haunting I couldn't believe you could be such a hypocrite as heroine was or be so inconsistent Renzo said it right he couldn't leave her for one second for her not to invent another truth in her head The whole ordeal was like pure torture And those awful relatives first that Julia and then grandmother I wonder if they were not afraid to go to sleep bit their tongues and die from poisoning?Poor Lorenzo He definitely deserved better especially as author failed to show us why he fall in love with Marisa in the first place I think if was despite his better judgment
