SYNOPSIS:

A shadow meets the light …
When someone needs to disappear, the Chicago mob calls on Joe Rossi. A man who can move without a sound, and kill without a word, they don’t call him the Shadow for nothing.
This time, it’s a New York crime family in need of his skills, but it takes one glimpse of her to make him agree to the job.
Liliana Marcello is every inch a principessa della mafia. Her life has taught her to be wary of strangers, yet her ballet career contradicts everything by putting her on display.
It’s a man with a dark smile and a constantly changing demeanor that makes her feel safe again, but it’s the unknown that holds her back.
It takes one look … One dance … One word … One smile to captivate a man.
And one second to kill a woman because of it, too.
Not all monsters hide in the shadows. How are you supposed to see them coming?

Let's start off by saying that this is a new author for us and we are really enjoying her stories.

I really enjoyed this tale it was griping suspenseful and a really great love story.I have to say I really loved the main characters Joe and Liliana were complete opposites yet fit each other so well.One thing they do have in common is that they are are both from powerful crime families.


Liliana's career as a ballet dancer keeps her very busy which keeps her away from the family business although she is not naive about her father and brother's she is not privy to how they conduct their business and I really feel she doesn't really know just how powerful and dangerous they really are.


Liliana and Joe form and instant connection he to is from a Mafia family based in Chicago.This story reminded me a little bit of the story Beauty and the Beast.


I loved the chemistry and the connection that was their between these to as they made a cute couple their courtship was somewhat of a train wreck waiting to happen yet ,they were super sexy and hot together when they came together for some hot and dirty sex. lol Joe is keeping secrets their entire courtship first because it was family business and then to protect her.How do your court the girl you are crazy about without her realizing in actuality you are guarding her and not just a job ?


I have to say that I haven't really read a lot of the Mafia romance gene but, I have to say that the story kept me interested and turning the pages until the very end.The story had a great cast of characters and some twists and turns and a few surprises.


I loved both Liliana and Joe from the onset of the story but, Joe became my favorite character this time around.Joe just kept surprising me at every turn because he kept doing things out of his comfort zone and out of character for him and also kept straying from the plan and then gets involved with finding out more about the job he was hired to do things he never ever does.The cool and collected man is everything but, as Liliana has him totally off his game. Lol 

"Grinning"

Overall we enjoyed this story as I found the characters to be love-able,intriguing,mysterious and that it had just the right amount of drama and suspense .I also loved the author style of writing and would love to read more books by her and will have to start with one of her mafia series for sure.


We loved it !

Captivated by You
Captivated by You - Sylvia Day Gideon's POV every other chapter or so was a delightful surprise and it was great to see things from his side. Again, I loved how even if things aren't always pretty in their relationship, with ups and downs, they continue working them out.

CAPTIVATED: STILES--BEFORE by Katherine King
Captivated: Stile Series (Book One): Stile: Before - Katherine King,Denise Fowler
  Harley spots Kate in the audience at his concert and wants her. She wants nothing to do with him. She has a boyfriend but is drawn to Harley. Drawn together they discover what they have in common and work towards a relationship.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the first person point of view from each perspective as well as the insight into their thoughts and feelings. Watching how the secondary characters saw their relationship gave more insight into their personalities, especially Harley's. I hated the cliffhanger ending. Now I have to get part 2 so I know what happens to them. Ugh!!!

Totally Captivated Side Story: Totally Peeking Under the Sheets Volume 2
Totally Captivated Side Story: Totally Peeking Under the Sheets Volume 2 - Hajin Yoo
I am SO glad Ewon made the right decision this time round. If he did not, I would have thrown him into the deepest sea. Hated the way he takes Mookyul's love for granted especially for the sake of someone so undeserving of his compassion (talking about his irresponsible parents, not the little one).

Anyways, I think the sequels are great too. Adore these two lovey-dovey birds. They are truly a passionate pair. Their love confession is very intense and soul-stirring.
