Addictive Alessandro is the third book in the Savage's Buck & Doe Book series by Anne Marie Citro and this entry follows Alessandro Savage, a man who can’t forgive himself for the murder of his eldest brother. He blames himself for the death of his brother, even if he was not the one who pulled the trigger. Now home isn’t what it used to be any longer. He drifts away, drowning his grief in liquor, seeking redemption. But can drinking ease the pain? Ava Lombardi has found her way into Alessandro’s life when she helped bring him home. Helping him stay sober was another of her challenges. While she’s been a loner with no interest in men, she feels irresistibly drawn to Alessandro. Can she be the healing he badly needs?

In the third book in this series, readers encountered one of the Savage brothers broken by the loss of father and brother, and in this installment, the story explores yet another brother who is unable to find redemption, possessed by a sense of guilt for the death of his brother. Themes of family and brotherhood are beautifully explored and readers are pulled into a family dynamic where the bond between brothers is a sacred one. The romance between Ava and Alessandro is strong and I found it interesting that the two characters come from a painful past. Each of them is genuinely flawed and carrying scars of the past with them. The same theme of love healing broken hearts is explored in Addictive Alessandro and in a way that makes it irresistible to the reader. Addictive Alessandro by Anne Marie Citro is a page-turner and a gorgeous treat for fans of new adult romance.
