Here's my advice for how to survive a vacation to Italy with the college boyfriend you've just now realized is terrible:

1. Ditch him in Rome.
2. Take the train to Naples for pizza.
3. Let the attractive older man you’ve just met buy you a drink.
4. Flirt a little (or a lot) while ignoring his wedding ring.
5. Let him bend you over a table.
6. Break up with your boyfriend.


There are a lot of ways to respond to the news that your wife is trying to kill you. I have sex with the young American who stumbles into my restaurant. And then I get revenge.

    Fan-freaking-tastic!!! Age gap romance with an anti hero and a bit of a wallflower heroine. If you like insta lust and filthy mouthed heroes then pick this up and the second book The Hitman. This one ...

    The guy was still married when he fcked the hell out of the heroine. And the heroine also at the same time has a boyfriend.This is surreal. I can't believe I picked this up on my own volition. I'm not...
