    1. Hot, hot, hot read ladies This was a wonderful contemporary romance from a brilliant author The book had me entranced and completely mesmerized from start to finish.The characters of Abby and Dante were both wonderful to read about Abby the young woman that will risk it all to save the life of her grandmother, she will do what ever it takes, which in this book made her the go getter.Dante the strong, charming and relentless but oh my so sexy man that will rather blackmail his wife back into his [...]

    2. The reluctant wife is a great contemporary romance which I would recommend to fans of Jennifer Probst Marriage to a Billionaire series.This story jumps right to it which I liked Abby got married real young with the perception of Prince Charming still fresh in her 19 year old mind She was in love and starry eyed for her older handsome and incredibly rich Italian husband Dante however married for the business, his family heritage and the means of creating a son Shattered Abby runs from her marriag [...]

    3. View of my review and others at my blog mynotsovacantshelfAt first I had mixed feelings about this novel However, I was certain of one thing Dante is a jerk, but a sexy jerk non the less I liked the scenario that Abby and Dante find themselves in, and that neither of them are willing to admit their feelings Abby was before she left, but Dante never could Now, what got me was that Dante was 29 and Abby was 19 when they married That freaked me out Which, I also guess is why I understood why Abby [...]

    4. Yes another reunion story Classic hot Italian husband blackmails English bride back into his bed Dante is one of those alpha males afraid to show weakness yet that fear becomes his biggest weakness His attitude was a key factor in the break down of his marriage three years ago.Abby as a youthful bride lacked the maturity to cope with the demands of a male who insisted he did not do love but wanted a child immediately After three years away she has grown up, but only her grandmothers ill health w [...]

    5. This novel was very painful to read, due to the emotional content I loved the heroine but I believe the hero was way too hard on her She was only a child when they married, so young yet, only nineteen and he put pressures on her some thirty year olds couldn t quite handle.

    6. NetGalley free readIt wasn t terrible, but it wasn t good I can say I didn t hate reading it But it felt incomplete in a way, a bit jumbled Example is when Abby first goes to the Villa in order to ask Dante for the money for her grandmother She internally says she will guard her heart against him Of course before she even sees him she starts to waver She s immediately jealous when she finally does see him only to have him wrapped around a woman, who turns out to be his best friend and a lesbian [...]

    7. For me this is the perfect story Second Chance stories are in my top three genre s, but they have to be well written, powerfully emotive and as a reader I have to want the characters to have their second chance and to me The Reluctant wife ticked off everything on my list plus The Reluctant Wife introduces us to Abby when she s pulling up to the gate of her Husband s home, the home she left three years prior, needing his help Seeing an opportunity that will suit all parties Dante promises to as [...]

    8. 3 1 2 stars for me, but I rounded up The full review, including quotes and a giveaway, can be found on Pretty Sassy Cool Abby was only nineteen years old when Italian Conte Dante Lombardi swept her off her feet He made it very clear from the beginning of their whirlwind relationship that he wanted to have children right away Lack of attention from Dante and too much pressure being a Contessa in a foreign place caused Abby to flee Three years later, she s back Her grandmother needs an operation, [...]

    9. The Reluctant Wife is a sweet and relevant bargain marriage story Abby married Dante for love Dante married Abby for a baby With the disparity in reasons, Abby fled the marriage only to return to save her Grandmother from dying So, the bargain is struck her grandmother has life saving surgery and Abby and Dante have a marriage and children When other issues make for even misunderstandings, Abby and Dante have to fight for their love and their marriage.Abby and Dante are both well drawn characte [...]

    10. Bumped down to a 3 on the re read For some reason, Dante s hypocrisy really hit me this time around Yes, he claims later that he was really just lashing out in anger, rather than being mad at Abby, but his blackmail behavior was pretty despicable in light of his actual comments to her He claims that she lied about something that could affect the rest of their lives and that it was unforgivable But now I see that his lies about his health and potential death would most definitely AFFECT Abby, as [...]

    11. For this review and visit my blog The Reluctant Wife has been compared to the Marriage to a Billionaire quite a lot and I can see why, they book have the same style and themes but despite a good effort The Reluctant Wife is not as good.The storyline is ok but is a little over the top The deal Abby makes with Dante is not one I can see a majority of woman agreeing to Generally Abby was alright, but everyone kept talking about how much backbone she had and a lot of the time I struggled to see it. [...]

    12. I expected a lot because it had a great coverI was kinda disappointed because even though the main topic of this novel is different from many others, it felt lacking somehow, and it s not just because it s short The story is pretty much what the title claims Abby is reluctant to come back to Dante because they had a not so nice history Oh, she s reluctant alright, but not so much that it took a little less time for her to agree with Dante s proposition She went back to him and accepted what she [...]

    13. For this review and Live Read and Breathe Well this book had good qualities and angst With Dante and Abby you do feel the connection between the two but I got frustrated at times with the repeated misconstruing between the two The book was a quick read and it was quite sweet In the end part what Dante s family does for Abby and Dante is profoundly beautiful In this book love definitely wins in the end Dante and Abby had to do some soul searching and growing up before they could really be togeth [...]

    14. This book was too predicable, and and some parts extremly gross I don t normally read books like these but it had been recommended to me and I deicded to give it a try The topic was very different from other books whihc made it interesting but what was best about the book was the style of writing.The author made the words come to life, very good

    15. Abby Taylor met and married Conte Dante Lombardi in a whirlwind courtship but when the dust settled, she and her arrogant husband couldn t seem to find a happy medium Dante was forever busy and absent from their lives and his pressure on her to have a child before she was ready put a terrible strain on the relationship Three years ago, Abby walked out and hasn t looked back.Now she must go to Dante and beg for his help her grandmother needs an operation and has been placed on a public waiting li [...]

    16. Awwww, I loved this book I don t read adult contemporary that often, but when it catches my eye, I just can t help myself The Reluctant Wife was DEFINITELY a pleasant discovery for me in this genre This book made me so happy It set my heart all aflutter and everything.There were oh, so many things I adored about this book First of all, I loved how the characters went through problems that are not exactly approached in other books Not taboo subjects or anything, but simply problems that aren t th [...]

    17. 3 stars.Abby was only nineteen years old when Italian Conte Dante Lombardi swept her off her feet He made it very clear from the beginning of their whirlwind relationship that he wanted to have children right away Lack of attention from Dante and too much pressure being a Contessa in a foreign place caused Abby to flee.Three years later, she s back Her grandmother needs an operation, and Abby comes to Dante for the money This was the first time in three years that she would be in the same room a [...]

    18. This is one of those times when you can pretty much take a book at face value, but in a good way I actually started this one not knowing how short it was, so I was surprised to see Evans just jump right into the nitty gritty But you know what I liked it Considering this is such a short book, Evans does well to grab your attention right from the start, making you equally curious as to how these Dante and Abby got to where they are today and where they go to next I will say that there is little ro [...]

    19. At First Sight Three years after leaving her husband, Abby returns to this Italian villa to ask him for a favor Conte Dante Lombardi isn t sure how he feels about his errant wife s return In his mind, she left because of a petty fight and should have crawled back long before But, he never really forgotten Abby he didn t want to forget her and he has reasons why he would much rather remain married than go through with a divorce So he strikes a deal with Abby he ll give her the money she needs for [...]

    20. Also on sillymelodyGood morning y all I m excited to bring to you the newest book from Bronwen Evans If any you have read any Bron s previous books, you would know that she normally writes historical romance Well, this is her first time writing a contemporary romance I must say that it was pretty good So, let me bring to you The Reluctant Wife.After three years Abby Taylor needs a huge favor from her husband Conte Dante Lombardi, she needs help with medical expenses for her grandmother So, she r [...]

    21. This book was good it s worth reading I would say, and it s one of those books that you read when you just have time to while away lol I d say that I would definitely recommend it But seriously the crappy medical stuff in this book makes me want to punch something and throw this book across the room Like seriously How stupid can you be rant below in spoiler view spoiler Okay, I am not a doctor, or in anyway close to being one at all but seriously it took me a 5 minute google search to learn that [...]

    22. Firstly, I should point out that I was gifted this by book through the author, my review however, has not been influenced by this.I love Bronwen s historical books and this is the first contemporary romance that I have read by her and I would have to say, that I thoroughly enjoyed it I would describe this book as a comforter , what this means is, Yes the storyline has been done by other authors, it is predictable and the outcome inevitable The difference with this book and other similar books, i [...]

    23. What Abby thought was a marriage based on love, respect and passion truly wasn t Feeling out of place, unsure of who she was she decides to leave and return home to England to live with her Grandmother Leaving behind her husband, Conte Lombardi.Dante doesn t believe in love business and family are his life and isn t about to change that When Abby after years apart waltzes back into his life looking for help everything he thought he believed is tossed right out the window.Abby didn t want to go t [...]

    24. This is your love long lost but given a second chance Abby and Dante married young and for all the wrong reasons, not love This was something Abby could not live with Dante needed a bride to give him an heir He told Abby there was not chance of love Being the rich alpha male that he is, Dante expected Abby to just accept this The problem is, Abby already loved him Her heart was broken and there was no changing his mind so she ran Now 3 years later her grandmother needs a heart operation and she [...]

    25. While I did like the book than I was expecting to, I didn t love the book Dante isn t really all that likeable, not even when he realizes that it s okay to have feelings and becomes slightly less of a jerk The way he was with Abby in the beginning and how he treated her when they were first married was really difficult to get over Then when he learned about her issues, he turned into a jerk again It took a life or death situation for him to really come to his senses, which really kind of annoye [...]

    26. I set myself on the task to write a review on every book I rated here on , so I m going to do just that The Reluctant Wife is a book that I can identify with one word and that word is boring And the interesting thing is, that it s not boring because of lack of action there s plenty of that , it s boring because it s so predictable you know what s going to happen on the next page.Now, the plenty of action I wrote about above comes from the over dramatic situations that couldn t really find ground [...]

    27. He was her man, and he loved her, no matter what he said or didn t say A woman knows She would do anything and everything to make him admit what she was sure was in his heart.I am a fan of Bronwen Evans because of her historical romance novels so when I stumbled with this contemporary one, why not give it a shot And I m so glad I did It was like reading a historical and contemporary romance at the same time The hero was an Italian count It was really refreshing to read a story, wherein all this [...]

    28. Abby Taylor s grandmother needs heart surgery So Abby heads to Italy to speak with her estranged husband Its been three years since Abby left him and she hates to approach him now for the financial help she needs When she enters his study to see him, he is resting on a couch with a woman Abby is embarrassed and yet, decides to stay at least long enough to ask him for his help Her husband, Conte Dante Lombardi, states that he will help her, but there are stipulations He needs an heir He wants her [...]
