My Thoughts

I found The CEO, The Puppy and Me to be a lovely, endearing story! This is the second book in the Bartolini Legacy series. After some surprising information, Gia embarks on a journey to find her real father. Along the way she meets Ricardo, and their adventures turn into one that shifts into romance! I enjoyed the interactions Gia and Ricardo have with one another, and there is a puppy that keeps their ties strong!

This story is equally warm and emotional, as Gia learns shocking secrets in her journey to discovering her lineage. Her siblings also maintain their strong ties with each other, despite the surprise of their lineage is thrown at their feet. Having Ricardo at Gia’s side make things equally enjoyable, especially since he is on his own journey to healing his personal life. I highly recommend Gia and Ricardo’s love story for those seeking a sweet, lighthearted read!

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.
