THE ITALIAN'S DEAL FOR I DO
He’s distrustful and domineering, yet Olivia has fallen under his spell.
“Abide by the contract that I’m going to present to you. You have no right to refuse.” With these words, the devilish Rocco Mondelli, a wealthy man from Milan, threatened Olivia. Rocco thinks Olivia is a temptress who goes after wealthy men and that she is the one who deceived his grandfather. Olivia is outraged that Rocco would believe her capable of such behavior…yet she can’t suppress her response to Rocco’s gaze. How can he affect her so when he clearly thinks so little of her?

The hero finds out from his grandfather's will that a famous but hidden model has been living at an apartment under his name. He suspects that she's been his grandfather's mistress but that isn't all true. The man just saw a desperate woman who wanted to get away from the modeling world and provided her a place to hide. Of course, the hero doesn't think that and gives the heroine her a week's notice and repaying the termination fee that his grandfather paid. He doesn't even doubt when he sees her working as a waitress rather than shopping at a boutique. Now, he's facing opposition from the board on his capabilities with the only way to prove himself is to marry and settle down. So, the hero pressures the heroine to not only work as the face of the company but to proclaim they're engaged to get the board members on his side. They go back to New York and the hero sees different sides of the fighting model to the young girl her mother used to get money to fund her own expensive tastes. I liked how the hero shut the mother up through the phone, I only wish I was a fly on the wall to see the mother's reaction when it happened. Although, the hero calls his relationship between his father and him of Shakespeare's "Othello". I don't know how Othello is similar to their relationship because it's about a medieval interracial marriage that goes badly because of other's interference, not estranged relationships between parent and child. I would have chosen something like King Lear or Hamlet. Next, the hero learns from one of the board members that he doesn't intend to hand the reins over to the hero so quickly because he's just getting married. The hero finally learns the reason for the heroine's disappearance was seeing her friend OD on drugs that she couldn't get onstage. The hero encourages her that it's all okay and to not give up. After her fabulous walk, the hero pulls her in for a hug and terminates her contract. He states that he feels bad for everything he's put her through and the wedding ceremony will go through but he'll tell everyone they broke up. On the day of the wedding, everyone is waiting for the heroine to arrive. The hero gets a little realization from a letter left behind for the grandfather by one of the board man about how love makes one stronger. Right then, the heroine comes crashing in her wedding gown. She states that she's come because she loves the hero and wants to be with him. It was really a sweet ending.
