Salena Barone has broken free of her family and moved into an apartment above the D’Angelos' restaurant, where she works as a manager—without a husband, thank you very much. But even on a restaurant salary, she soon finds herself strapped for cash. Salena’s never been afraid of living on the wild side, though, so she takes on a side hustle that’ll raise big bucks…and eyebrows, if anyone finds out.

Tattooed biker Ryan is the youngest of the wealthy Rutledge wine family and has never dreamed of rings, forever, or continuing the family business. He’s perfectly happy living his own life and helping out hardworking folks in his own way.

When these two independent singles spot each other at a Rutledge-D’Angelo wedding, the attraction is instant. But as their friendship with benefits evolves into something more, the secrets Salena’s keeping—from family, friends, and Ryan—threaten the happily ever after she never knew she wanted.


Heartfelt and addictive! We’re back in the fold of the lovely D’Angelo family again when restaurant manager and friend Salena moves in upstairs and falls for Gio’s new brother-in-law. The characters are hard not to love, the setting is humorous and warm and the angst is at an all time high when an even stricter Italian family than Mari and Luca come into the picture! I loved every minute of this book and the series in general. We need more siblings so we can keep returning!

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a buttinsky family who always has to be a part of every brewing relationships and who loves hard and loud. Such a fun family!
