What do you do when your greatest temptation is a dangerously handsome and alluring man?

Elena works as an art restorer in Venice, and is in the process of bringing an old fresco to light in a historic palazzo. Art is her world, along with her best friend, Gaia, and Filippo, an old pal who she thinks just might be her new love . . . until Leonardo comes along. A chef with a tempestuous spirit, Leonardo is in Venice to launch a new restaurant, and he pushes all of Elena’s buttons—good and bad. As Leonardo awakens Elena’s senses, she faces the difficult yet exciting choice between the safety Filippo promises and the danger of Leonardo’s embrace.

I Watch You is part one of a bestselling erotic trilogy that proves Italians definitely do it better.
 


Venice - Italy

29-year-old Elena is finally responsible for her first own restoration. She's restoring a beautiful but very damaged fresco in an old and empty Palazzo in Venice.




But the Palazzo won't be empty for much longer. The owner just told her that a business partner will be moving in for as long as he's overseeing the launch and early days of their new Restaurant. Famous sicilian chef Leonardo Ferrante.

As soon as Elena sets eyes on him, she's completely intrigued. He's extremely sexy. He seems to have a dark and scary vibe and she feels like a shy teenager with a crush when he's around. And he makes it a point to be around her quite a bit. He's watching her work, he stops by to talk to her...

But Elena wants something safe. And safe comes in the form of her old friend Filippo. They've been friends in College, then lost touch, but now he's back and he's around a lot.
Things slowly heat up between them.
But those things are not very exciting. They're sweet, romantic, sexy and most of all: safe.

But then Fil has to move to Rome. And Elena doesn't stand a chance of resisting the charms of the hot chef.

 After he invites her and her best friend Gaia to the restaurant opening, he finally seems to be making his move....
But he's not a heart-and-flowers-romance-boyfriend-cutesy kind of guy.


WILL THE TWO OF THEM GET THEIR HEA???
OR WILL EVERYBODY DIE??? o.O
MAYBE A CLIFFHANGER???

I'm not telling you that of course ☺

OK, I might tell you that we have 2 more books to look forward to, that means no HEA ...yet ☺

I REALLY LOVED THE STORY!!!!!

It was such a beautiful Romance.
I LOVED the way Irene takes us through Venice - I felt like I was right there with them. The smells, the sounds☺

The air smells of warm, freshly baked brioche and cappuccino...


And the story is beautiful too. Elena between two completely different men.
But she doesn't want poor Fil - she wants Leo.
And it's so sad, because he always tells her that this is not a forever kind of thing.
But Elena and we, the reader, keep dreaming that he will magically fall in love with her ☺
But, will he?? ;)))) I'm not telling you!!!

There were very erotic scenes in the book.


But also funny, sad and frustrating moments.



I really enjoyed the book, it was something refreshingly different from all those New Adult Romances we're reading at the moment. The setting alone - Venice - makes the story just...MORE ☺

I WATCH YOU IS A BEAUTIFULLY & REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT EROTIC ROMANCE!!


and now PLEASE HURRY Mr./Mrs. Publisher - I need to read the next books ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


... but don't worry - Books #2 & #3 will be out in July ☺☺☺
