The Whole Time by Catherine Bybee

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author. Catherine Bybee. The Whole Time. The D'Angelos.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a tale of a strong-willed dancer exercising her independence and the rich biker she can’t let go.

Salena Barone has broken free of her family and moved into an apartment above the D’Angelos' restaurant, where she works as a manager—without a husband, thank you very much. But even on a restaurant salary, she soon finds herself strapped for cash. Salena’s never been afraid of living on the wild side, though, so she takes on a side hustle that’ll raise big bucks… and eyebrows, if anyone finds out.

Tattooed biker Ryan is the youngest of the wealthy Rutledge wine family and has never dreamed of rings, forever, or continuing the family business. He’s perfectly happy living his own life and helping out hardworking folks in his own way.

When these two independent singles spot each other at a Rutledge-D’Angelo wedding, the attraction is instant. But as their friendship with benefits evolves into something more, the secrets Salena’s keeping—from family, friends, and Ryan—threaten the happily ever after she never knew she wanted.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the fourth book in the series – as all three of the D'Angelo siblings have found their happily ever after, we now get Salena, their restaurant manager's story. Whilst I think you can read this as a standalone, you will definitely benefit from having read the series, as you will understand far better the dynamics at the restaurant and understand more of Ryan's background too.

It is expected that an Italian daughter lives at home until she marries... but Salena jumps at the chance to move into the top floor flat above the restaurant. She then finds that she needs funds to repair/replace her car and thanks to a friend, starts a slightly unusual way of earning some extra cash.

She and Ryan met at a D'Angelo wedding, and definitely felt the chemistry, but were more than happy to not get involved... well we get the fun of watching them fight the feelings and learn the values needed to make a relationship actually work.

I really enjoyed this book, it is full of humour, passion, family, and, as always, love.
