5 HUGE stars
This book was PERFECTION to read. I wanted the hot-and-bothered type of romance that has me swooning and this was exactly that. Throw in the suspense and mystery and it was addictive and page turning.
Every book I get from Tijan I find myself thinking that it can't POSSIBLY be better than the last one I read. I am ALWAYS wrong.
This book was the best. I loved that I was the same age as the main character and I definitely felt like it added a kinship type of feeling to it. I WANTED that happy for her and I was hoping that she would let go and just let life happen.
First, can I just say that if I wasn't very happily married I might consider a mob boss. Like truly. If they are all like Cole, sign me up.
But kidding aside, he was yum.
A broken woman just trying to heal, and a man who needs a woman like her even if he doesn't know why. Throw them together and it was explosive. They fit together like two puzzle pieces.
Secrets, history, and ulterior motives leave these two fighting for the happy that they know can be theirs. I was right there with them waiting for the other show to drop. I wanted to know what was coming and in the end it was a trial for everyone.
I shouldn’t have remembered him. He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all. But I could feel him. The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated. The second time was different. He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed. That was just the beginning. He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name… Cole Mauricio
