On the Flap
The first installment is centered on Luca Moretti, the bambino of the family. He’s a patrol office who’s been thrust into the spotlight after a couple of his good deeds have gone viral on social media. Because of a less than desirable smear on the NYPD’s reputation, the higher ups plan to use their golden boy and the media circus to try to repair the department’s public standing.
Obsessed with getting a promotion to anchorwoman on a national news network, Ava will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Journalism is all she’s ever known. It’s in her family’s blood much as the law is in the Moretti clan’s. With her two younger siblings having already found professional success, it’s her turn to surpass them.
I love the delicate balance of the love/hate relationship between the two main characters. They are both strong willed and stubborn putting their own wants before the others…that is until things begin to change between the two. Ava comes from family pressure but without affection, whereas, Luc has a similar burden but with unconditional love. While there is an instant sexual attraction, it’s truly a slow burn that must build between the two before any move is made to satiate their need. It’s interesting to watch the two different approaches to life from their distinctive perspectives.
This is an endearing Blue Bloods type family who will undoubtedly come through with wit, sarcasm, and romance.
