This mafia romance by Bethany-Kris and Erin Ashley Tanner is the perfect mix of romance and suspense. The heroine, Melina, is the type of female that I love. She is strong. Her life is about surviving obstacles. She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty if she needs to. She takes care of herself...she isn't taken care of. Then she meets Mac.
Mac knew the minute he saw her that she was a challenge he wanted to take on. This really made the story for me. The way Mac knows what he wants and goes after it. Outside of his mother and sister, Mac's life is the mafia. It is what he has always known...what he has worked for. Adding Melina into Mac's life is something he never expected...something he wants badly.
“If a man cares enough, worshipping his woman should be the simplest, easiest, and most obvious thing for him to do every day, doll. She should be the most important thing on his mind. The first and last thing he considers every day and night.”
Mac isn't high ranking in his family. I found this interesting. It had a refreshing twist to the story. He has to work for everything he wants. The plot is intriguing as Mac balances his position in the family and his pursuit of Melina...add in an unknown enemy and it is on!
Thank you, Bethany-Kris and Erin Ashley Tanner. I can't wait for more of Melina and Mac.
