REVIEW: Signed Over to Santino by Maya Blake

Posted May 20th, 2016 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Presents, Review / 2 comments

In Signed Over to Santino by Maya Blake, Reeling from a family tragedy, champion figure Signed-Over-to-Santinoskater Carla Nardozzi loses her virginity in one uncharacteristic night of oblivion with Spanish aristocrat Javier Santino. She flees the next morning, not knowing her rejection has earned her a black mark…

Three years later, Carla needs Javier’s help and he seizes his opportunity for retribution: Carla must become his lover to save her home. Javier should be satisfied; his ice princess is thawing once more. But as the passion heats up between them, Javier realizes he’s found something even sweeter than revenge!

Signed Over to Santino by Maya Blake was a well written romance and had a slight connection to the author’s previous book “A Diamond Deal With The Greek”.

Carla is a figure skater who has fallen on hard times financially. She had her own issues to deal with and fights for her independence. I liked her but sometimes in front of Javier’s more overbearing nature, her feistiness died down. Javier is an alpha hero with a great intensity. He was very possessive and overbearing at times but apart from that, he was a good hero.

The romance moves at a good pace from the start and had a great intensity about it.The buildup was great in the story but the end was anticlimactic. It did not come as well together in the end as I expected.

Overall, it could have been better because it had great potential but I enjoyed reading this one nevertheless. It just did not live up to my expectations.
