Meet the DiDominzio family—fiery, loud, Italian. Francesca, Antonia, Gianna, and Carmine were raised by their strict, old school Italian father. Each sibling has their own journey but how they find their happily ever after definitely isn’t easy.

The King and the Pawn – Francesca, the baby of the family, wants nothing more than to fulfill her dream of being a fashion designer. Unfortunately, Papa DiDominzio will stop at nothing to squash her dreams and lead her toward the traditional career of the women in their family. Francesca concocts the perfect plan to bring home a man her father will hate in hopes that he’ll make a deal so she can still reach her dreams.

Not in Love – Antonia, the sexy second to youngest DiDominzio, exudes nothing but sex appeal, especially with her non-traditional blue eyes. After dating one man after another, Antonia thinks she’s finally found the man of her dreams until she realizes the one she really wants has been right in front of her since they were children.

One Day as a Lion – Gianna, the eldest DiDominzio sibling, is the only one that has followed Papa’s wishes by marrying an Italian man and working in his restaurant. While her brother and sisters suspect something isn’t right with her marriage, none of them can prove any differently. However, there is one man that will do everything in his power to save Gianna from the man she calls her husband.

Destined For You – The only male sibling, Carmine is more like a second father to his sisters than their brother. There’s only two things that are important to Carmine-his family and his club. Keeping up with his sisters and running his successful business leaves him no time to find a mate. As luck would have it, fate falls into his lap, changing his world, in more ways than one… and not necessarily for the best.

Day as the Lion Book 3 of the Novellas

One Day as a Lion Book 3 , Love & Famiglia: The DiDominzio Novellas by Lyssa Layne

I purchased this book.

I am so clapping right now.  I was super excited to see Gia get a book.  The eldest sister needed an HEA and I am thrilled with how she got one.

We have seen Gia and Vinnie in the other books and we have not been fans of his and now we get the full truth of their marriage.  Vinnie is a DICK!  Gia is the good girl.  The girl who followed her father’s rules and married an Italian man.  She is the dutiful daughter and wife who is miserable in her life.

When we see Luca and Gia meet my heart was so conflicted for her because divorce isn’t an option for her not that Vinnie would ever leave his punching bag.  Seeing Luca and Gia form this undeniable bond was amazing.  Seeing the ends of the Earth Luca goes to help save Gia is even better.

I am not getting into a lot of the plot because I think it would be a big spoiler if I said Gia *spoiler* and then Vinnie *Spoiler*…so yeah you wanna know how the broken eldest was glues back together??  Then read the story!!!
