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
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 !
