The Santinis Book 1
Leo Santini is a man who always has a plan. It is the way to live a well-ordered life. He never planned on dealing with the hardheaded physical therapist who is taking care of his friend. He definitely never planned on being so totally infatuated with her.
Maryanne Johnson doesn't have time for a romance—especially with a military man. Sure, Leo is drop dead sexy, but more than one man in a uniform had hurt her before. Unfortunately, she can't seem to resist him or his kisses. It doesn't help that the man is as sweet as he is sexy. Falling for him is easy, but she does her best to keep herself from admitting it to him.
Leo knows she wants to keep things simple but when a Santini is in love nothing will stop him from achieving his goal—even the hardheaded woman he loves.

I jumped on the opportunity to read Leonardo by Melissa Schroeder. It’s the first in the Novella series, The Santini’s, she’s releasing during the month of May. With a new novella every week and with each one representing a different branch of the military within the same family, it’s a unique and fun idea. Leonardo was a quick read and entertaining from the first page.
I quickly fell in love with Leo Santini, he’s this big Army hero. He’s sexy, sweet and drool worthy. He treats Maryanne “MJ” Johnson like a lady, like someone worth cherishing, all while falling head over heels for her. He has this big tough exterior with this marshmallow center that I just found so loveable.
I loved Maryanne, she’s this tiny woman with such a big attitude that she terrifies grown military men. I imagine that comes with being a military brat and a physical therapist. She’s quick witted, strong and just the kind of woman to keep a big Army hero in line.
Their banter was one of my favorite parts of this book. The sex was hot and the romance was sweet. I look forward to reading more of this series. I really hope their mom makes plenty of appearances because she reminds me of my mom, and I could tell she loves her sons.
I recommend this for the hot romance and the sexy banter all set into a delicious military romance. Pick up Leonardo and be on the lookout for Marco, the second Santini brother coming soon!
I received a review copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
