An emotional erotic heart-wrenching story of lust, love and light
Alexis Evangeline Robertson is young, insecure and daunted with painful memories from her dark, tortured childhood. She has rules, and she has boundaries.
She never lets anyone too close.
Lucca Caruso has the most mesmerising crystal azure blue eyes and a heart of gold. When Lexi meets this Italian God, she doesn’t expect to see him again.
But fate intervenes.
While on vacation at a Villa in Val D'Orcia, near the Chianti hills outside of Florence, she is more than surprised to see Lucca arrive at the very same villa. Lexi begins a journey of self-discovery, helplessly folding, melting and crumbling to the temptation of her heart’s desire.
After the desires of lust ...
And the sweetness of love ...
Lexi will spread her wings towards the light ...
This is the story of one girl’s destiny to find her light from her sinister, dark and harrowing past and the one man who can take her there.
“Do you trust me?” he asks.
I can’t believe we are having this conversation.
“That’s not what I asked, and you know it, just answer the question Lexi do you trust me?” He demands.
I pause then tell him the only thing I can, I tell him the truth…
“I don’t trust anybody” then look down at my hands. I have said too much and offended him.
“I am sorry Lucca, I don’t mean to hurt you, it’s the truth, and you said you wanted to know what’s on my mind”. I feel the need to justify my answer. Lifting my chin up, he stares into my eyes, contemplating what I have told him.
“Are you upset with me?” I ask pitifully.
“No I ‘m not upset, now we are getting somewhere if you are telling me the truth, the trust thing is something we will just have to work on” he says with compassion.
“Do you still think of me as a stranger?” he asks.
“Kind of” I say shyly,
“Kind of…? Well we will just have to do something about that and become more intimately acquainted” he grins with that sexy dimple smile before claiming my mouth showing me just how he intends to get to know me better,
Sweet Jesus… his expert tongue assaults mines with lustful passion, carnal hunger and intense seduction.
Fuck File P for Panties will be dropping just directly…

Dream Cast –
My ideal Actress to play Lexi would be Mila Kunis,
My ideal Actor to play Lucca would be Adrian Grenier or Henry Cavill .Of course both would need to wear Azure crystal bright blue tinted contacts to fit Lucca’s description.
This book is compelling. It takes you on a journey of a girl’s life that was taken from her at an early age. It was hard to read in some parts of it but was necessary to drive the point home with the story.
You meet Lexi who is a shy and tainted with a distraught life. She was very abused by a psycho path. With all of this though, she manages to open up to a man who is gentle. She is a gorgeous girl with deep scars she has to work through.
Then there is the knight and shining Lucca. He is heavenly. He is hot, smart, rich, compassionate; I could go on and on. He is the best thing in Lexi’s life. Did I mention he is Italian? Meaning he is dark, handsome, and OMG talks to her in Italian. *Sigh*
I am giving this book 3.5 hearts. I really think this is a great book to pick up and read. Its a great love story. It only took me a day to read and really encourage you to go and pick it up.
