Claudia thought she had the perfect relationship with her fiancé Javier, but soon realized she was wrong when she found her love in bed with her own sister. Hurt and humiliated, she went to a bar to drown her sorrows, meeting an attractive and sexy man with whom she lived an unforgettable night, and who turned out to be her own boss. Alessandro Lombardi, a powerful and millionaire man, will make her a crazy proposal to marry just for a contract, but the almost obsessive attraction he feels for little Claudia will put him in a dangerous balance between marriage and business. His jealousy will be a problem and will create certain conflicts that will destabilize their relationship, especially because he does not want to have offspring and Claudia carries in her womb the fruit of so many nights of passion.View More
I could only watch as my best friend moved back and forth. She looked distressed, but I was starting to feel dizzy."Eva, stop it! Why are you so nervous?""My trip is approaching, I have my suitcases almost ready, but...""What's wrong, dear friend? You can still change your mind about the trip if you're not sure.""It's just that now I realize how much I'm going to miss my parents. I've never been separated from them," she says with teary eyes."You told me yourself it's just a five-month trip. Seize this opportunity and enjoy it," I encourage her, seeing her sad."You're right. With some contacts from my father, I managed to secure a teaching job. It's a language center in Canada.""Will you be an Italian teacher?" "Exactly, my friend. I'm really excited. There are people from different nationalities at that center. I think I'll learn a lot about other cultures," she says this time with a smile."I'm happy for you, Eva," I give her a hug. "Alright, I'll leave you to finish packing
"Darling, how lovely to see you both," my father greets Alessandro and me."We have excellent news for you," I announce as my mother joins us. "You will be grandparents to a beautiful baby boy."Shouts of surprise and excitement ensue."Congratulations, my dear, Alessandro," my father hugs us. "Have you thought of any names?""We like the name Luca," Alessandro says, and my mom starts crying."Mom?""I'm thrilled to have a little one coming into the family," she says through tears. "Our grandson Luca will be a much-loved boy."Alessandro and I are not officially married yet, which is why we've been planning a new wedding all this time.Eva will soon leave for Canada, and I want her to attend my wedding. She's my maid of honor and must be there, so I sped up my plans."Eva, is everything ready?" I ask my friend as we meet for lunch."Yes, Claudia, I promise to call you as much as I can, don't worry. Plus, I'll only be gone for 5 months," she says with a smile. "I'll be back just in tim
I spent the entire Sunday morning in my bed, unable to sleep at night."I better pay Claudia a visit,I need her advice," I say with a wry smile due to my huge dark circles.I took a shower and put on something comfortable, dark blue jeans, a white t-shirt, and white sneakers.I arrived at Claudia's house; she looks so beautiful with her baby bump, and it makes me so happy to see her. She's like the sister I've always wanted.I didn't waste any time and told her everything that happened last night. She listened attentively as we sipped on juice and ate cookies."I have to admit that Alexis is a jerk, but on the other hand, Piero is a true gentleman. I think you should give him a chance," she says with a smile."Claudia, it's not easy to just dismiss these kinds of feelings.""I know, when you fall in love, you can't see anyone else, but I think you really enjoy suffering. You could have a caring man by your side, yet you still prefer holding onto Alexis," she says with a wry expressio
Eva's POVAfter Alessandro and Claudia left, I stayed working alone in the office. Alexis had to attend a very important meeting.I could only think about the kiss between him and me; I couldn't concentrate on my tasks."Hello, beautiful.""Piero, what are you doing here?" I exclaimed, slightly flustered upon seeing him in front of me."I had to take care of some advertising matters here at the company and took the opportunity to come and say hi," he says with a huge smile, a very handsome one indeed."I'm glad to see you. Tell me, are you excited about the release of your new movie?""Of course, it was quite a challenge for me. I was used to making action movies, and now starring in a romantic genre was special," he responds enthusiastically."I'm excited to see the outcome. I'm sure it will do very well in sales.""Thank you, Eva," he says, taking my hand. "Would you like to be my date for that day?""Well, what a surprise. I would certainly love to, but that day I have to be by my
We arrived at the restaurant where Piero made the reservation, it's spectacular, and I feel both ecstatic and out of place for being in such a beautiful and elegant place that my paternal family is so accustomed to.Is this how my life would be if I accept marrying Piero Ferrara?"I had never been to this place before, it's very nice," I say somewhat uncomfortably, trying to push those thoughts out of my mind."I knew you would like it, it's my favorite French restaurant, 'Le Gigot,' their steaks are really good," Piero says gallantly.We sit at a pre-booked table, and Piero even pulls out the chair for me in a chivalrous manner."While we wait for our order, tell me, why did you decide to become an actor? My grandfather mentioned that your family owns the textile company FR," I ask."That's correct, they do, but I've always been drawn to acting. And when I retire from this career in the future, I'll assume the presidency of the company," he confesses, and I'm amazed. "Believe me, I'm
When I leave the office, the phone suddenly rings, pulling me out of my thoughts.I see the contact on the screen and hurry to answer my phone. It's my mom and I think it's important because she never calls me at work."Hello, Mom, what's up?""Sweetie, I hope I'm not interrupting your work. Tell me, why didn't you mention that you saw your grandfather?"Her question surprises me. What's all this about?"I only saw him briefly. We coincidentally crossed paths here at work. Don't worry, I didn't do anything wrong.""I know you're a good girl. It's just that your grandfather talked to your father and he wants to see you tomorrow at his house.""Tomorrow? That's impossible. I have an appointment, and I'm not going to cancel it for my grandfather. I'm sorry, Mom.""Dear, I think it's necessary for all of us to visit your grandfather. He wants to see us. He seemed really worried.""No, Mom, I'm sorry.""In the morning, we can visit your grandfather, and you'll have the afternoon free. Don'
"In love! With whom? Why didn't you tell me?" she exclaims in genuine surprise.Of course, it's obvious she'd react that way, considering she had named me the number one single for a while now, but Alexis Lombardi was an incredible person who had deeply ingrained himself in me.Even over the years, I couldn't forget him completely."I don't know when I started liking him so much…""Wait, don't say another word, are you falling for Alexis Lombardi?" She looks at me with wide-open eyes."It seems like it," I say with a lump in my throat."But I don't understand why you're sad. It would be wonderful if you and Alexis became a couple. Imagine the four of us on a double date. You're my best friend, and Alexis is Alessandro's cousin…""Dear friend, I think you're hallucinating. Look at me, I'm really not his type," I say with a wry smile, remembering how everything "ended" between us."Eva, what's gotten into you? You're beautiful, with your long black hair and those gorgeous blue eyes. Jus
Days go by, and Alessandro informs me that he has news for me about Anna, which makes me nervous because I had managed to find solid evidence of her kidnapping and how she had drugged him to take advantage of him.It seems that Matteo himself had given them to him."Love, the good news is that Anna will go to jail for a long time, and her parents are accomplices. I will have full custody of my daughter."I couldn't be happier, I throw myself into his arms, but I notice he's tense, so I look at him inquisitively."There's another piece of news, isn't there?""That's right, and it's that Anna escaped. They could only imprison her parents.""And Vittoria?""She was with them. Bruno is bringing her along with John. She'll be able to live with us.""These are wonderful news, but Anna...""I'll do everything in my power to put that crazy woman behind bars. I won't let her keep hurting us."Ale comes closer to me and kisses my lips. I want to respond, but there's been something on my mind fo
My brow furrows as I watch her place one of her hands on his shoulder and then lean in to whisper something in his ear, causing their inevitable closeness. With just that tiny gesture, my body burns with anger at the scene I'm witnessing. And even though Alessandro gently pushes her away, the woman clings to him like a damn tick.I don't even realize when I started walking towards them, but there I am, standing in front of him, staring at him intently."Claudia," he says my name as if nothing's wrong, making the woman turn to look at me."Who are you?," I ask the blue-eyed woman who won't leave my man alone."I could ask you the same thing," she retorts with an arrogant look."Olivia, she's…""Claudia," I interrupt him. "Nice to meet you, Olivia."I look at her without any hint of cordiality or joy."Oh," she huffs, looking me up and down. "So, you're the lucky one. I'm Olivia Brooks.""Claudia, she's an actress, like Piero," the idiot who unfortunately will be the father of my child
