Synopsis:
Laura Biel and her boyfriend are on a dream vacation in beautiful Sicily. On the second day of their trip, her twenty-ninth birthday, she is kidnapped. Her kidnapper is none other than the head of a powerful Sicilian crime family, the incredibly handsome, young Don Massimo Torricelli, who is determined to possess her at all costs. Massimo has his reasons. During an earlier attempt on his life, a vision appeared before his eyes: a beautiful woman, identical to Laura. After surviving the attack, he vows that he will find the woman in his vision and make her his own. No matter what.

For 365 days, Massimo will keep Laura captive in his palatial estate and attempt to win her heart. If she doesn’t fall in love with him during this time, he will let her go. But if she tries to escape at any point, he will track her down and kill her entire family.

Soon Laura develops a fascination with her handsome and powerful captor. But as a precarious, risky relationship forms between them, forces outside their control threaten to tear them apart...


Review: 

4 out of 5 Stars

The book is always better. I'll admit I skipped to the "good parts" when I watched 365 Days by Blanka Lipinska. Who could resist looking at Michele Morrone? Not me. Not you. Not anyone. So I got my Michelle Morrone fix and then patiently waited for the book to be translated from Polish to English. I'm so glad that I read the book first and then watched the movie in its entirety. The book was better. Don't get me wrong; this movie is nuclear HOT. It's a dirty sexy story where a woman named Laura is kidnapped while vacationing with her boyfriend in Italy. Massimo, Laura's mafia boss kidnapper, gives Laura 365 days to fall in love with him. I have to be honest; I wouldn't say I liked both characters at times, but ended up liking them more in the book. Laura did get on my nerves at times. I mean if some insanely hot guy kidnapped me and forced me to go shopping for closets of designer clothes and drink champagne all day, I might be annoying. Yeah. No. Kidding. 


If you've read my reviews before, you know I'm not a critical reviewer. I have to say that I felt a few plot elements needed some tightening up and general editing. It might be due to the translation. With that said, I'm excited to see where this story goes. 365 has that Fifty Shades of Grey curbside appeal, and this story is totally addictive. I'm going to stay spoiler-free, but the book ended a little differently from the movie, and I'm thankful that there is more to come.
