Author Jill Blake weaves an engaging story of a couple given a second chance at love. The stark contrast in Isabelle's character provides an added dimension to the already well-developed storyline.

Isabelle DiStefano and Luca Santoro burned up the sheets the night they met, leading to an idyllic Italian vacation. Everything was perfect until Luca discovered Isabelle's career choice. Three years later, tragedy has changed her career path. When Isabelle and Luca meet again, the embers of their attraction are rekindled. Will their earlier passion be enough to sustain a relationship, making "THIS TIME FOR KEEPS?"

While this is third book in a series, it is a stand-alone story. The high quality writing reflected in this installment makes me eager to read more from this author.

The heat factor between the main characters is explosive. The author provides a tasteful amount of spice to engage the reader without the raunchiness often found within the genre.

Thanks to a realistic storyline, the reader gets a sideline view of a trip to Italy, Luca's home country. The attention to detail is evident in the description of Luca's attempts to teach Isabelle how to prepare gourmet food.

Sometimes it takes more than once to do something right. Author Jill Blake proves that true love may not always happen without a few bumps along the way.
