From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Willow Winters, comes a sexy second-chance MC romance.
I took the fall for a crime I didn’t commit, and it cost me everything. Including the only woman I ever loved.
I’m not the man she fell in love with. Four years behind bars made me harder, colder… with a temper I can’t control.
But one look at Kat and nothing else matters. I’m broken without her and a shell of a person I used to be.
She is my one and only. My addiction and my sanity. I could never imagine how time would change everything and how far we’d drift apart…. but she can’t deny this heat between us and she can’t hide the way her body reacts to mine.
Kat was mine once and nothing can ever change that.
I only hope the secrets of the past four years don’t tear us apart the moment I make her mine again.
Series: Underworld Kings
My Rating: ★★★
Willow has been doing the most recently. Her books have been great, so I expected no different from this one. The underground Kinds series has been a hit and miss for me but there are some authors you just come to count on, and Willow is one of those for me.
This MC and Mafia mashup is fast paced, full of suspense and angst.
Kat and Cillian are one of the lucky ones whose arranged marriage is not a noose around their necks. They’re fortunate that they love each other and actually look forward to their marriage. Unfortunately, things don’t go according to plan. An unfortunate event tears them apart in the most painful way and while they’re apart, more happens that makes you wonder if they’re strong enough to overcome.
This book started strong. From the very first page the suspense and the anticipation are palpable. I was holding my breath about Kat’s secret. At one point I wondered if she’d a baby that she kept from Cill. Then wondered if he was in a relationship with someone else, but when she finally revealed what had gone on I knew there was going to be some shit.
While the book was great, I have a few issues with it. Firstly, Cill took that betrayal way too well. I don’t care what anybody says, that kind of betrayal needed a lot more fire. In my humble opinion. Secondly. it was soooo short. There were a lot of things that happened off the pages, which really irks me. Thirdly, the blurb and about 90% of the blurb did not set you up for anything but MF romance. So that little twist at the end really annoyed me. I don’t read books like that. So I was bummed.
Despite all this, its well written as you’d expect from this author. The flow is great. It just needed to be longer and be a full novel really and I really wish that twist at the end didn’t happen.
