365 Days

 ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Laura Biel and her boyfriend are on a dream vacation in beautiful Sicily. On the second day of their trip, her twenty-ninth birthday, she is kidnapped. Her kidnapper is none other than the head of a powerful Sicilian crime family, the incredibly handsome, young Don Massimo Torricelli, who is determined to possess her at all costs. Massimo has his reasons. During an earlier attempt on his life, a vision appeared before his eyes: a beautiful woman, identical to Laura. After surviving the attack, he vows that he will find the woman in his vision and make her his own. No matter what.

For 365 days, Massimo will keep Laura captive in his palatial estate and attempt to win her heart. If she doesn’t fall in love with him during this time, he will let her go. But if she tries to escape at any point, he will track her down and kill her entire family. Soon Laura develops a fascination with her handsome and powerful captor. But as a precarious, risky relationship forms between them, forces outside their control threaten to tear them apart...

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  The first words that come to my mind are - Wow.what a great book.  I was told if I was a fan of You and 50 Shades of Grey I would like 365 Days.  I have never heard of You and I wasn't a huge fan of 50 Shades of Grey, but it was okay.  365 Days had me hooked from page one and I couldn't put it down.  Absolutely loved it.  Yes 365 Days is STEAMY, but it is also has a great plot.  Lots of twists and turns that keeps it moving along. 

We go through all the craziness of Massimo, being head of the most powerful Sicilian crime family.  Not only the power and the money but the danger as well.  His mood can change extremely fast and he is used to getting what he wants by being violent.  When he kidnaps Laura he quickly realizes that is not the way to win her heart.  He has to learn to trust her and be gentle with her.  Even though Massimo threatened to kill her family if she left before the 365 days were up, she ends up falling in love with him. They both have a very healthy appetite for sex, which is where the book is very steamy.  They can't keep their hands off each other.

365 Days is on Netflix right now too.  After I read the book and had an evening to myself (its not to be watch with kids around), I sat down to enjoy the movie.  The movie didn't disappointment and I really liked it, but I think the book is better.  I often find the book better than the movie.  The movie did a great job following along with book though and really brought the characters to life.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: There better be a book 2 coming out soon.  The way the book ends, can't be the end of Laura and Massimo.
