Nancy did such a great job with this book! I knew a bit what to expect since I’ve read a couple in this series but I was still completely enamored with this book. I could not put it down and sleep??? Forget it. I was up reading this book!! I had to get all the answers to my questions and to see how the book would play out.
I loved these characters so much. Lukas and his love of his father and willing to do whatever to make him happy. Always one to promise to fulfill his parents’ dreams of him marrying and having a family now he is going to do it but first he needs to find himself a wife.
Dale, oh man, her story breaks my heart. She has been through so much and feels so much that she has shut herself off emotionally. She has been treated poorly and left by those closest to her and the toll it took has left scars that will make it hard for her to open up to anyone.
The instant chemistry that Lukas and Dale have was one that will have you devouring this book. Although the attraction is strong, one wants more than the other and it is going to be a long road for them to be on the same page and what a journey it was.
I highly recommend this book even if you haven’t read any others. You won’t feel lost and if you are fan of mafia books than this is for you!! You will be eating up the pages and be just as hooked as I was throughout this entire book!!
