Book given for an honest review on Netgalley.
It's a new author! And I think I'm in love! this story was just amazing!!
This book has it all, extremely hot tortured soul guy who is a great man underneath it all; beautiful, talented and loving leading lady; and some thrilling mafia action lurking in the edge of the story line just to keep us on our toes.
Oh and don't forget the steamy hot sex scenes!
The main characters are fun to read about, with their constant banter and the connection they had that couldn't been faked, they were just a perfect match.
The story was entertaining and captivating, I didn't want to put the book down, almost fell asleep on my kindle trying to pull an all-nighter, but I finished it and I'm feeling a bit of book hangover.
They made me cry a little, it was inevitable, I was able to really connect with the characters and their deep and dark secrets. So when the moment came for their true feelings to be revealed, the water work was a given.
The main issue in the book is the fact that sometimes the hardships of our pasts give us a feeling of unworthiness that is really hard to overcome, and we encounter a huge difficulty when it's time to put the barriers down. Nobody wants to be hurt, and those who know how intense the sting of the pain is, have a moment of uncertainty when it comes to letting people in.
This is a story of true love, of letting go of the pain and allowing ourselves to feel again, the outcome is so much sweeter than the feeling of emptiness and what ifs.
