REVIEW: How the Italian Claimed Her by Jennifer Hayward

Posted October 3rd, 2023 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Presents, Review / 8 comments



How the Italian Claimed Her is Jennifer Hayward  s a glittering love story set in the fast paced fashion world which had me from page one. I think I loved Christiano before the end of chapter one.

At his absolute wits end with his highest paid contract – world renowned model Jensen; Christiano lays down the law and bans Jensen from any more attention grabbing headlines. He has a company to turn around and all his bets are on Jensen honoring her contract to the T. The amount of influence that Jensen holds in her beautiful hands is priceless. Her partying and wayward headlines are concerning and threatening everything Christiano holds dear so he orders Jensen to his home; where the campaign is going to be created. What Christiano doesn’t know is what is causing Jensen to act in a way from her usual professionalism. Will Jensen share her private secrets with Christiano as their attraction mounts and trust starts to build?

The consequences of Jensen’s behavior has a huge impact but Jensen is afraid to speak up. The nature of her secrets mean that she is torn between her personal life and her professional reputation. They both circle back to each other and as Christiano and Jensen’s forced proximity leave her vulnerable; there’s only one thing to do… Jensen chooses to ignore the personal and focus on the professional which leads to implosion.

I can’t fault this story. I wouldn’t do anything different. Everything was there; excitement; humor; intense emotions and two stunning and likeable characters who have the most incredible slow burn. The plot is exciting; the drama flys and the world they are immersed in did the same to me’; complete immersion.

Literally could not put How the Italian Claimed Her down. I was hooked before the end of chapter one and I adored both Christiano and Jensen.

More please Jennifer Hayward.
