Sicilian’s Shock Proposal  by Carol Marinelli was a well written romance more on the lines of second chance than revenge trope. Luka is a self made man who has worked hard to get away from the shadows of his father. I liked him and had no problem in understanding his motives.Plus he had a good character growth throughout the book unlike Sophie who was stuck at the same place. She was a strong, feisty woman and a loyal daughter and I liked her but I wish she was not so much stuck up and there was some growth in her characterization. The main characters share a very complicated history due to their family connection. Their backstory explanation took over the focus from the romance quite often.
