Winters adds a third installment to the “Baldasseri Royals” (following Falling for the Baldasseri Prince). Ten years ago, Bella Baldasseri tried to show off for her brother’s handsome friend, Luca Torriani, and it ended in disaster. Both teens had to be rushed to the hospital and were separated with no idea how the other was doing. Now Bella’s brother is getting married, and it’s the first time the two will come face-to-face since that day. Both are sure the other hates them after what happened, but when they finally get a chance to talk, it seems their parents conspired to keep them apart. Meeting again as adults, Bella and Luca realize it was more than just a teenage crush, and absence can definitely make the heart grow fonder. In this second chance royal romance, the hero and heroine must fight against their own families and Bella’s duties to the crown. While their reunion felt a little too rushed, the rest of the story finds its proper pacing, and readers will be glued to the page.
VERDICT Purchase where contemporary and second-chance romances are popular.
