Barb’s 4* Review
*audio copy received from author in exchange for an honest review*
This is my first Bethany-Kris book, and I will be reading her next books. This story had a few elements to it that made me curious about it. 1) The blurb drew me in when the cover didn't really do much for me. 2) It's a "mob" story. Which is not my normal type of read. But I enjoyed it! 3) The narrator nailed it!
Delicate, sweet Lily DeLuca has been running from her life since she turned 18. She's pushed the past behind her, as best as she can, to move on and tour Europe. Three years later she is called him by her oldest brother Deno.
La famiglia. That's what it's all about. The outfit that took Lily's parents is now wrapping itself around her tight enough she's ready to run, until she gets a good look on the man she is now being married off to. None other Damian Rossi. Ghost as he is known by has agreed to take Lily in and do whatever he can to keep her safe as repayment to her brother.
What starts as a "must do thing" quickly turns into a heartfelt, for curling relationship between the two. They have their ups and downs and I swear the two of them are like two boxers in a ring at time. Lily doesn't take anyone's shit and Damian... well let's just say that he doesn't let her get away with as much as he... concedes to let her know what he can to keep her safer yet.
The two of them have to bind themselves together for many reasons... but in the end, it's all for love.
I really enjoyed this book. The story has an edge but is soft at times as well. I can't wait to get into the other books!
