Review of The Fabrizio Bride (Sizzling Sexy Santa Barbara Book #1) by Alyson McLayne


The Fabrizio Bride

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 176 pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

A year after being dumped by her childhood friend-turned-lover, Sarika Dkany has decided to move on with her life. No more waiting for Rafe to come back for her. No more putting her life on hold. She wants everything he can’t give her: a home, husband, and family, and she’s going to get them – with someone else.

She’s done trying to make him love her.

But then Rafe shows up and turns her world upside down – again – and it takes every ounce of determination she has to keep her hands to herself and keep saying ‘no’…even though she’s waited half her life to hear the question.

* * *

For all of Rafael Fabrizio’s trappings of success – his old-money family, his multi-national company, his movie star good looks – he’s a man afraid to let his guard down and take what he really wants: Sarika, his grandmother’s Goddaughter and only woman to set his body – and soul – on fire. A fire that burns so hot, so all-consuming, he feels out of control. So when his grandmother falls ill and he has to bring Sarika back to Santa Barbara, he’s determined to keep his distance – except Sarika does the unthinkable and says she’s over him. Faced with a lifetime without her, Rafe realizes he needs her and vows to convince her he’s changed – before she finds someone else who’s not afraid to love her.

* * *

But has he really changed? Sarika doesn’t think so. To prove it, she has a plan, and if he truly wants to be with her, he’ll get on board…no matter where it takes them. 

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Rafael Fabrizio is a very wealthy man that has everything he wants in life. Except the one woman that he loves. He dumped her a year ago as things started to turn serious. He can never be the man that she deserves. The things that happened in his childhood prevent him from loving a woman.

Sarika Dkany was taken in by the Fibrizio family as a teenage when her mother died. She has always loved Rafael and when she finally got to be with him he crushed her heart by breaking up with her. Now that she has decided to move on with her life she has goals. Husband, kids, career and a family.

Rafael learns of Sarika’s plans to meet a man, fall in love and have his babies. Over Rafael’s dead body! Trying to deal with the emotions he is feeling towards Sarika and her new plan he has a plan of his own. Marriage.

This was a good read. Rafael is very protective of Sarika and loves her with all of his heart. Until he deals with his past he will never truly have a future. And Sarika deserves all of him!
