From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a tale of a strong-willed dancer exercising her independence and the rich biker she can’t let go.

Salena Barone has broken free of her family and moved into an apartment above the D’Angelo restaurant, where she works as a manager—without a husband, thank you very much. But even on a restaurant salary, she soon finds herself strapped for cash. Salena’s never been afraid of living on the wild side, though, so she takes on a side hustle that’ll raise big bucks…and eyebrows, if anyone finds out.

Tattooed biker Ryan is the youngest of the wealthy Rutledge wine family and has never dreamed of rings, forever, or continuing the family business. He’s perfectly happy living his own life and helping out hardworking folks in his own way.

When these two independent singles spot each other at a Rutledge-D’Angelo wedding, the attraction is instant. But as their friendship with benefits evolves into something more, the secrets Salena’s keeping—from family, friends, and Ryan—threaten the happily ever after she never knew she wanted.

Salena + Ryan

Salena is 26 and finally moving out of her parents' house. Not something that is done in an italian family if you're not about to get married. But Salena has to live her own life now. She's nowhere near ready to get married - she probably never will be.
Then she meets Ryan. He's her bestie's new sister-in-law's brother. She meets him at the wedding.
And Ryan is kinda the same as Salena. Not ready for anything serious.
But it is insta mega attraction on both sides.

Let the fun times begin...

Another super cute love story in this adorable series.
I love the whole family vibe and the sunday dinners and just everything.
Salena is not really family, but she lives in the D'Angelos' house and works in the restaurant - so she's as good as family.
But she's keeping a secret from everyone. People would not understand it!
And Ryan. Would he be okay with it? Probably not.
But we have a lot of adorable falling for each other moments to read through until we come to the slightly harder parts. ☺
I loved reading this.
Adorable. Sweet. Sparky. Sexy. Full of good food and wine and family and friends and all the things!

I so need to see this series on TV one day!

THE WHOLE TIME was such an adorable + fun + sweet + sparky + just beautiful romance - I loved it! Run to your nearest book dealer for your own Ryan - this one is mine!

ARC received for an honest review
Welcome back to Little Italy and the D'angelos.
I adored restaurant manager/friend to the D'Angelos through all the books. I love the way the D'angelo family adopted her as one of their own, and look out for her.
And we met Ryan previously - if you have read the previous books, you will remeber him as Emma's brother.
The spark and attraction is strong with them, but can they survive Salena's secret, or will it sour for them before they really start?
You will need to read to find that out, but you will want to read. The whole series is cute and adorable
I want to move into the apartment above D'Angelos, and have Mama feed me her cooking lol!
Was great to get more of the whole D'Angelo extended family and see where they are all at.
