Review for ALCHEMY by Serena Fairfax

ALCHEMY
by Serena Fairfax


Set in sun-drenched Lake Garda where churchmouse Tamsin Heriot, an English rose, pairs off with sexy, privileged Luca Leopoldo who’s half Italian half Somali. But Luca isn’t what he seems…
Orphaned, aged seven, when his childhood in Mogadishu is brutally destroyed, Luca is left emotionally broken. Ragged and starving he seeks refuge in Italy where kindly aristocrats adopt him. 
Ever since she was fifteen, Tamsin has had a crush on Luca and the summer before she goes to university, she’s determined to lose her virginity to him.
It’s eight years before their trajectories re-converge. Tamsin, still lusting after Luca, receives devastating news that triggers her return to the dilapidated family casa when an unexpected bond develops between her and Luca’s widowed, adoptive mother.
A will alters what starts as a dalliance and there’s no shortcut to love, everything to lose, as the relationship between two wounded people, Luca and Tamsin, is pushed to breaking point

It started out slow but it picked after couple chapter's.. really enjoyed it. luca's and tamsin  was tested with tons secrets and lies with each other. like how luca was all 100% perfect like most writer's do it making women with all the self-doubt but you did it with luca testing him at every turn and pushing him at every level like us girls. until something bad about to happen to open his/her eyes how much somebody means too you..... everything was well-written and the story line too. 

5 out of 5 star's
