I shouldn't have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Book boyfriend material
Can I say, while I don’t often LOVE Tijan’s heroines, I always LOVE her heros and Cole is no exception. He is sweet, protective, manly and just so COOL. Addison is a little average in my opinion.
I felt it was a bit slow to begin with, there was little interaction between the main characters for pretty much the whole first half of the book. When the romance starts flowing, there’s not a whole lot but Cole is just so wow, and I do love mafia romance so I enjoyed those romantic scenes very much. SPOILER(ish):
There is a “misunderstanding” that breaks up the couple. I personally do not like these situations but it happens fairly close to the end so not such a big deal.
i liked that Cole got his own book read it in like less then 2 days
O.m.g could. Not. Put. It. Down.
I seriously and honestly started reading this book yesterday and stayed up til 2 am reading until my eyes just closed on their own only to wake up and finish the book this morning because I just needed to . My family are not impressed and I’ll feel it later haha .
I LOVED this book . It has drama and suspense friendship love , HOT love , violence (but not too much ;) ) grief and loss , hope , everything it has a bit of everything !! Please please tell me there will be more Cole and carter and Emma and Addi.
Yet another brilliant piece ! ! ❤️
