Superficially yes it was dealt with but not to my liking Again the physical side of their relationship kind of took over and made me feel like that was all they really had going for themAnd for me the motional intimacy was really missing between the two of them There wasn t a lot of intimacy between them unless it was in the bedroom and I really need there to be a balance between the two in order for me to support the couple and

"which there wasn "there wasn a lot of romance Bird-by-Bird Gardening either or least that s the way I felt I just needed to feel the intimacy between them but I just didn t They didn t give me the feels at any point I just didn t like them as a couplePlus I couldn t stand Rocco I thought he was the ultimate jerk without any redeeming ualities for the majority of the book The way he treated Nicole not only in their marriage but in the current time was deplorable He treated her like his own personal sex object and nothing though she did call him out about it which was good He never wanted to talk to her He seemed to avoid her unless they were having sex and just how the treated her was not attractive at all He was too arrogant for his own good and I didn t like him so it was really hard to root for him and his relationship with NicoleI did like Nicole though and thought she really stood up to Rocco and put him in his place at times She really did grow up so much in the past two years since she had been separated from him for the past two years She stood on her own two feet and was very much an independent woman and no longer the doormat that she was I felt for her I rooted her for I thought she deserved the best and that wasn t Rocco in my opinion I really did hurt for her And I really was glad that she acknowledged that Rocco wasn t the only one at fault for the failing marriage that she was responsible too She never learned how to talk about her feelingsspecially when she was feeling so much and she needed to let it out but she didn tOverall this book was just okay for me The beginning was promising and I just wished that carried throughout the story but it stuttered and stumbled and fell a bit The Works of Saint Augustine especially when the physical part of their relationship came back and into the play That just felt like the focus of their relationship and nothinglse was really meaningful in anyway Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone even when they discussed issues of their past together It still didn t feel right There was just a lack ofmotional intimacy between these two They needed intimate moments that weren t in the bedroom I wasn t a fan of their relationship And I definitely wasn t a fan of his I was turned off by his attitude and demeanor that it really made it hard to be behind this relationship or happily My Teacher Is a Robot ever after I just couldn t be behind him or them as a couple You ve just served me with divorce papers Nicole he drawled What did you think would happen That I would just sign over half my fortune and let you walk off into the sunset with a toss of your pretty curls Is that what you were hoping Sharon Kendrick Bound to the Sicilian s Bed Kindle Locations 71 73 HarleuinUKLtd Kindle Edition And with that I ll just add my piece and state that Rocco was one of the mostmotionally cold H s I ve Supper Club encountered during my trips to HPlandia In fact this is a very uaint way of describing RoccoThis is a second chance romance based on a marriage of convenience that occurred only because of the heroine s accidental pregnancy It could ve been a 4 star novel but there was far too muchmphasis on the MC s tendency to drone off into their own respective interior monologues That of course detracted a bit from the story because it meant that less time was allocated to the actual Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) events that were happening in the present However I understood why the author chose to write these interior monologues because this was a very painful and angst filled second chance romance and it was necessary to get some insight into the inner workings ofach character s mind Firstly Rocco and Nicole were a mismatched couple because she was an office cleaner at his corporate headuarters in London It s fair to say that insta lust was the bond that drew these two together Initially Nicole was Rocco s dirty little secret He would call her into his office after hours dress her up in sexy lingerie and stripper stilettos before getting down to the kinky sex Rocco himself couldn t understand why he was behaving like this with an office cleaner of all women but you know what they sayThey re not only mism.
