"What do you think love is, Roman?" I ask him, listening to him as he speaks.
He takes a deep breath, his unease evident in his face. His hand plays with the tablecloth mindlessly as he answers.
"Love is an all consuming need to be with someone, whether romantically or in a platonic way. Love is standing with someone when they go through the hell that life has to offer. Love is, at the end of the day, knowing that you have someone to fight your battles with you."
I smile at him, "We need to get that on a Hallmark card."
Laughter erupts from him as he looks away abashedly.
For Valentina Palermo, independence and a good work ethic has been her ride or die, to the point where accepting criticism from others is a fault.
But when she meets Roman Belluci, a multi-billion dollar heir, she questions her morals, fighting for the man she loves without being seen as a home wrecker.
For Roman Belluci, finding a way to please his wife Gianni is as difficult as solving an equation of general relativity. When forced into a marriage with her based on money and her dark secrets, Roman tries everything to get her to respect him and their child Rene.
After meeting Valentina, a love for her simple life hypnotizes him into her arms.
Taking a quick break to regroup. Will be back soon!
