Seductive Santino is a work of fiction in the new adult sub-genre with plenty of sizzling romance and family drama and was penned by author Anne Marie Citro. Forming the fourth volume of the Savage’s Buck & Doe series, the novel is written for adult audiences due to some sexual scenes and references to violent tragedy. Our central figure for this adventure is the titular Santino, who works at his family’s resort, but harbors a lot of fire and resentment for the loss of his father and oldest brother. When Chloe arrives at the resort for her bachelorette party, Santino takes an interest in her fiancé, sensing that something is wrong with the man that the beautiful Chloe has decided to marry.
Author Anne Marie Citro crafts a wonderfully immersive love story that stays grounded in real human drama, and contains plenty of complexities and emotional arcs for all its characters. One of the things which impressed me most was the character development, not just for our central pair, but into the expanded world of Santino’s family members and the supporting cast of the wedding party. Every person is fully emotionally realized, making it feel as though you are reading about real people, and are therefore even more invested in their future happiness or, in some cases, comeuppance. What results is a poignant tale about trust and the risks we must take for truth and happiness, and overall I would certainly recommend Seductive Santino to readers seeking a deep and developed new adult read.
