On the flap: An emotional erotic heart-wrenching story of lust, love and light.
File U for upside down. Lexi Robertson's carefully constructed life is about to be turned upside down.
Recently hired as Club di Energia's physiotherapist, the stunning yet insecure twenty-six year old finally thinks she has a handle on her physically and mentally damaging past. The only way Lexi can cope is by compartmentalizing her feelings with a unique, internal filing system. To maintain order, Lexi has a firm set of boundaries in place, and she never lets anyone too close.
File N for not happening. Lexi has no intention of giving in to the charming Lucca Caruso when he comes into her clinic for an emergency physiotherapy session. Despite his painstakingly handsome face and Italian that renders her speechless, Lexi is able to resist.
A Tuscany vacation with her best friend is just what Lexi needs to stop worrying about life and start enjoying it. A cooking course at a villa near the Chianti hills, just outside of Florence, will take her mind off a certain set of mesmerising azure blue eyes.
File F for fate. Lexi never expected to see the Italian god again, but they're staying at the same villa.
For someone that purposely refuses to feel, Lexi finds herself on a journey of self-discovery, helplessly folding, melting, and crumbling under the temptation of her heart's desire.
An emotional, erotic, heart-wrenching story of lust, love, and light.
Lexi struggles to confide in Lucca, slowly learning how to love and trust. Lucca is a gentle, patient lover with a heart of gold, but his need for Lexi is insatiable. He's the man we all want and can't get enough of.
Through the passion of lust and the sweetness of love, Lexi spreads her wings towards the light … until her past comes back to haunt her.
A hot and sexy story of survival, acceptance, learning to trust, and believing. One woman's destiny to find her light, and the one man who can take here there.
Welcome to the Luminara series.
I can describe this book in two words, fun and intriguing.
Fun. I like reading stories where the author can paint a picture with their pen and not have you bored out of your skull. SJ Molloy descriptions made you feel like you were there taking in the sights and sounds the characters were experiencing; it added to the story rather than deterring you from it. The chemistry between Alexis and Lucca was off the charts. I liked that despite all of her issues, Alexis was able to let her guard down around Lucca. I think it had a lot to do with the support she received from her Darlins’ as well as Lucca’s giving and caring nature. He was able to draw Alexis out of her shell little by little.
The story was intriguing. It kept me asking questions. What happened to Lucca that he needed to see a therapist and how can Alexis move on from such a tragic childhood? These questions and others kept me reading and reading and reading until it was all gone. I was happy with the ending and am looking forward to the second book in the series.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
