Book Review: 'Claimed by the Sicilian Tycoon' by Emma Shortt


Lyra ‘the man eater’ Matthews changes up the game and goes for what she wants in the conclusion of this fun trilogy. I enjoyed the way that the author had all three books start with the same opening scene so they’re all easily read separate of each other. The author did a good job of giving them their own level of uniqueness while still having the feel of a very spicy category romance.
Andros Casstellini was an interesting billionaire; he came from humble beginnings and I liked that about him. I liked that he wasn’t born to money but instead earned his way to the top. Lyra is out to get cash, but she’s not the normal money hungry woman in Andros’ world, she’s out to get the money for very noble reasons.
Their relationship explodes from the start and the rules they place on themselves hinted from the very beginning that it wouldn’t be an easy ride. I felt for them when they were working out what their relationship really was and how to react to each other. Their struggles really brought the whole situation a sense of reality that the whole Billionaire trope usually lacks.
I really enjoyed this story, and I really loved this series. It’s a great series for fans of category romance with the spice level stepped up.
