When her husband dies suddenly, twenty-nine-year-old Ella Williams turns to the only man who can help–Maximiliano D’Alesandro. Unfortunately, Max thinks she is responsible for his best friend’s death. Without his help and guidance, her life spirals out of control.
The thirty-four-year-old Sicilian billionaire and alpha male Dom needs just one thing to make his life complete–a submissive woman who enjoys the BDSM lifestyle as much as he does.
When Max discovers Ella’s wild and reckless ways, he literally takes charge of her life, both in and out of the bedroom! However, as their D/s relationship blossoms, some important information comes to light that shocks Ella to her very core.
Will Max save Ella from self-destruction? Or will the truth finally drive them apart?
Review: Love Slave to the Sicilian Billionaire is the fourth book in the Guilty Pleasure series by Jan Bowles. I chose this book because I liked the author. I have read several of her books and they are all great.
Ella just lost her husband to suicide. She is drowning in her grief, so she acts out. Ella seems the type of person the needs the structure that being a submissive brings. The author did a great job with Ella’s emotions. They came across as very real and multidimensional. This character had depth that many authors do not go into.
Max is reeling from the death of his best friend and places the blame where he thinks it belongs at Kirk’s wife’s, Ella, feet. When Ella seeks him out he is reluctant to help her. Max does not want to betray a friend, even a dead one. After meeting her several months later he gives her a second chance.
Max character was a character that I truly liked. He did not abuse his power. He was a fair person that lived by his morals. Ella’s transformation from the beginning of the book to the end was nice to see. I love happy endings and the journey toward those happy endings. The chemistry these two had went beyond the bedroom.
The only thing that would have made this story better would have been if the author was clearer on the timeline. The time period popped up now and then and was very distracting to the overall story line. This is one of the few books that I will go back and read. I love this series and cannot wait to read more from Jan Bowles.
