This is my second book from this series (and by Ms. Lori) and I really enjoyed it.
Before starting this, I actually went back and picked up book one with the intent to skim it, as I could not for the life of me remember who exactly Gianna and Allister were after reading the blurb. I knew I knew who they were…but I didn’t know who they were…know what I mean?
Anybadmemory, I recalled them and their story very quickly upon skimming the first few chapters; however, I actually ended up re-reading and enjoying book one again in its full glory. And I’m glad I did, because I felt like it made this book even better for me.
I remember when I first read book one, I was pleasantly surprised. As I said, I hadn’t read Lori before. Plus, I seem to have trouble finding good mafia romance these days – although I’m unsure if that’s because it’s tough to find…or because I’ve just read so much of it I’ve created my own veritable bear market.
But I digress.
I definitely enjoyed this one just as much as the first one.
Christian Allister was deliciously fucked up and I always enjoy reading about lead females who are quirky hot messes, but still manage to avoid being a dreaded Manic pixie dream girl (perhaps one of my least favorite things of all time).
The push/pull between these two was delicious and Allister provided the OTT obsessive alphahole I love read about, but would get a restraining order and a Concealed Carry permit for in real life.
In short, I hope Lori brings us more of this series and I can’t wait to read it if she does.
