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.

**Full length stand-alone
This was definitely a dark mafia book as described- but not too dark for me. I loved the characters & the suspense. I didn’t want it to end- that being said, I was a little disappointed with how it ended. There had been so much drama throughout the book- but the end felt like oh, okay. But I’d definitely read it again. Personally I think the 2 Carter Reed books should be read first then Cole. Those are great also.
Worth the read
I am so shook by this book. It was more than I expected and I loved every second reading it!!
