A Love So Dangerous by Lili Valente is the first book in her To The Bone series. It is hot and steamy without being overly done. The emotions run high, the writing carries you away, and you won't be able to get enough of Gabe and Caitlin either. Told in dual POV with a cliffhanger ending this will definitely suck you in. Note: It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.
Caitlin is a good girl who has sacrificed her own future in order to give her three younger brothers and younger niece a better chance at a future than she herself had. Her dad is a drunk, her mom abandoned them ages ago and her sister just up and ran off with her drug dealer leaving her infant daughter behind. Caitlin dropped out of high school so she could work two jobs to keep the kids out of the foster system and has been spinning her wheels ever since.
Gabe has a mission, to right as many of his family's wrongs as possible in the near future. In between, of course, picking up random girls at the nightclub. When a beautiful blond mesmerizes him with her dance he is hooked. Realizing he knows her after they spent time together on the dance floor comes as a shock, but a pleasant one, at least for him, she is just plain SHOCKED that Gabe is dancing and pursuing her.
Loved this - cannot wait to devour more. The characters are New Adult in age and the story reads like a new adult novel. Not to stay it isn't sexy and steamy but they are both in the 20-22 year range so if more mature characters are what you are looking for then I would not recommend this. However, if you enjoy steamy New Adult - READ IT NOW!!!!!!!
Wow, that is all I can say about A Love So Dangerous. The title says it all. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Lili Valente throws a curve ball and your spun into an emotional roller coaster. Gabe and Caitlin are just perfect together. Lust, love, darkness, edginess are just some of the things you'll feel when your reading it. Their relationship is not the norm but then again their courtship has not been one as well. One summer, that is what they have promised one another. But what happens when the heart wants more? Danger lurks in the shadows, the aftermath of Caitlin and Gabe's activities. Although their illegal activities were done for justice, in the end it awakens a monster. A monster that will not stop until Caitlin and Gabe pay. As always, job well done Lili!! Can't wait for A Love So Deadly, the continuing story of Gabe and Caitlin.
