IN BED WITH HER ITALIAN BOSS
Kate Hardy's In Bed With Her Italian Boss (3) proves that when one door closes, another opens. When Fran Marsden loses her job at a voice-over studio, cafe owner Gio Mazetti hires her for his growing coffee-shop business. What follows is a fun love story as Fran poses as Gio's girlfriend to please his grandmother, who's visiting from Italy. Gio is a likable character, and his family is enchanting. The problem is with Fran. While a nice enough character, she's very one-sided. The reader only gets to know office manager Fran, and the quick explanation given at the end for her conflicted feelings for her family are too little, too late.
