Taming the Italian Bad Boy (International Bad Boy) by Joanne Walsh Review

Wealthy, incredibly sexy Italian entrepreneur Danilo Spinozzi zooms into Lucy Luxton’s life on a motorcycle one quiet afternoon, and she can’t keep her mind or eyes off him. The people of Ravello, a small town on the Amalfi Coast where she is studying jewelry design, warn her that he is the town’s bad boy and a ruthless womanizer, but how can Lucy keep her distance when he is the one man who looks beyond her shy, plump exterior and sees the sensuous and creative woman about to bloom?

Devastated by the one woman in his life who should have loved and protected him, Danillo Spinozzi has had good reason to avoid long-term commitment. But after he takes one look at Lucy and basks in her kindness and unassuming, voluptuous beauty, he needs to make her his for more than a handful of nights. She’s a girl who deserves to be treated right, a tall order when he’s left a trail of broken female hearts behind. He’s going to have to do something he’s never done before—stay and woo her.

Even though Lucy knows she’s due to return home to England at the end of August and that Danilo will move on to his next conquest, she can’t resist him… Or has Danilo really changed his ways for good?

My Review: 

Taming the bad boy can be so much fun.

Danilo Spinozzi was a bad boy that everyone kept warning Lucy Luxton about.  But she didn't want to listen.

Lucy and Danilo met when Danilo was in England for a sales meeting and he wrecked on his motorcycle trying to avoid hitting Lucy's cat in the road.  Lucy’s doctor father brought Danilo back to their house to make sure he didn’t have any injuries.  When Lucy mentioned she was planning to go to Ravello Italy for a specialized jewelry course, Danilo told her to look him up.  He would be happy to show her around.  But Lucy hesitated to call when she arrived in Ravello.

One day while out riding her scooter, Lucy swerves to avoid hitting a dog in the road.  She soon learns the dog belongs to Danilo.  It was like history repeating itself.  From that moment on, Lucy decides to give Danilo a chance even thought everyone warns her about him.

Even though Lucy is very unlike any of the women who Danilo has been actor acted to in the past, her innocence intrigued him.  Will Danilo break Lucy's heart like all of the women he has left in the past?  Or will she be the one to change him? 

I really loved this book.  The story was written really well and I couldn't have asked for better characters.  Their passion was off the charts.  I know this story will stick with me for a long time.  I will definitely be revisiting this book again in the future.
