It's not easy to enjoy this book to its fullest when you don't grow found of Gianna. There's a thing called being independent and another called being selfish. I completely understand her distaste for the life she grew into but putting her family, especially Aria, in danger was such a big no for me. Mostly because she didn't even give an opportunity to Matteo.
When Aria helped her, I was just so upset and the entire time Gianna was in Europe was infuriating because you just know she isn't cut off to a "normal" life and she knew it too. And she continued to annoy me throughout the entire book...
The main reason I enjoyed this book was because of Matteo. The way he talked and acted regarding Gianna was really so interesting to see... He never truly tried to hide his feelings for her and so far the other books hadn't shown that. Plus, he is just so hilarious.
The bonus part of this book is that it finally has a dual pov!
I initially scored this 2,5⭐️ but I changed it to 3⭐️ because of Matteo.

Well.. where do I start?
Okay, so, okay. I started this so excited!!!! I loved Gianna and Matteo from the first book, I knew, I just knew they were going to be together, I was like, omg what? from the moment they were mentioned in the first book I was like- they are going to be together, and when I checked I saw that the third book is about them, and I was so freaking excited!!!
Okay, so lets start with the first important detail:
1. This is the best book so far in the series. and believe me when I say that it is very very very hard to compare the other books, they are so so so good. and the fact that this is the best one out of all...
2. Enemies to Lovers. that's all I'm gonna say...
3. Gianna's and Matteo's love story is just EPIC. it was so fun to read, you could see that it is a true epic love that came with the difficulties around them.
4. Matteo brings so much humor into the story. it makes the reading experience so fun and light, I laughed so many times out loud, and, omgggggg.
5. Gianna is the strongest women you will find.
6. I'll just leave it here- the spic.
Overall you can see that I love them so muchhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!
please read it!!!!!!
