Welcome to another week of My book boyfriend co-hosted by little old me whilst Missie @ The Unread Reader is studying for her final semester of school.
Italian billionaire Michael Conte is the head of his very traditional family, on his father's death bed he promised to look after his sisters and follow the old family tradition that the oldest son must marry first. To allow his sister to finally marry her fiancee Michael has to find a pretend bride fast and introduce her to his family in Italy. When he realises his best friend Nick's sister Maggie is due be in Milan he convinces her to play the part of his fake bride. However, when they get to Italy Michael starts to realise that independant and fiesty Maggie really is everything he has every wanted in woman.
I love those kind of romances where the hero and heroine are as frustrating as each other! Michael definitely has the family's pressures firmly on his shoulders he had to give up his own dreams to take care of his sisters and although they are adults themselves he still behaves more like a tyrant father rather than a supportive brother. It takes honest to a fault Maggie's influence for him to finally see that he has to let his sisters make their own decisions and along the way he also finally realises that the perfect woman for him is pretty much right in front of his eyes.
