For Logan is book five of Soraya Naomi's steamy, action packed Chicago Syndicate series. And I must say that this book cover is by far my favourite from this series. Beautiful.
A rogue CIA agent hell-bent on looking out for himself after justice has failed him. An ex-mob bosses daughter, sheltered from the life her family leads. Their first encounters made me wonder how exactly things might pan out between such opposites. I wasn't left wondering for long though. The crazy sexual tension, heart breaking discoveries, suspense and intrigue make this one page turning read.
"The handful of times I've seen him, we've never really talked. This is the second time he's had to help me, and I think he truly sees me as a nuisance."
Upon meeting the sassy college student Rosalia, it was clear she was very naive and a little vulnerable. However, things quickly change. Throughout the book the transformation Rosa goes through is gradual, but unavoidable in the dangerous world she now realises she's in. Every experience, both bad and good seemed to only amplify this underlying strength and intelligence of hers. I loved this, and I loved the banter between Rosa and Logan. Their stolen moments added some much appreciated humour and lightness that helped to balance out the uncertainty and darkness looming over them.
"What's been going on around me while I've been ignorantly living my life?"
Told in first person, dual POV from both Logan and Rosalia. For Logan is loaded with everything a reader is looking for in their next Mafia read. Even though it's part of a series it most definitely can be enjoyed as a stand alone. There is a lot of involvement from other characters in the series though. So it would probably make an awesome book even better when you know the stories connected to some of the secondary characters.
Dark, intensely dangerous and sexy, For Logan dishes out delicious twists and heart pounding moments at every turn.
"I've learned that love truly doesn't follow rules of logic. Love is magic. It's trusting blindly - even if it means taking the risk to get hurt."
First off, this is book 5. I haven't read the previous 4 but will now go back and read them! I literally couldn't put this down! I read the whole book in one go, and paid dearly for it the next day! This is an Italian mafia book. Add in Ukrainian Mafia, over bearing parents, a best friend in need, personal crisis', a mob war, and you have a recipe for murder, abduction, lust, love, intrigue and a story that has you gripping your device praying it doesn't go flat! I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy of this book.
First let me say I have never read anything written by this author before. After reading For Logan, I now have 4 new books on my list. And waiting for book number 6 already......
I personally enjoy a good mob story and Soyara did not let me down. Logan has one foot in the mob and one foot leaving the CIA. When he is giving the task of keeping the boss's daughter safe he sees it as his way to get his other foot in.
But that's where the story heats up and takes us to that place where you just can't put it down.
I love that both male and female characters have strengths and weaknesses and it's not a complete damsel in distress book. Like I said she got a new follower.
