Heath “Con” Connelly is back in San Clemente after three stints in the Middle East with the Navy SEALS. Despite the fact that he’s known to his “brothers” at Preach’s Place for being better with his hands and dangerous when angered, he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. And that’s going…well, not great when he bumps into Mia Santos and notices someone has been beating up the beauty who was always the woman he could never have.
Mia Santos, daughter of one of the most dangerous drug lords, finds herself in the cross-hairs of a turf war. Knowing she put herself there by making bad decisions when deep in a tequila bottle has sharpened her resolve to keep anyone—especially Con—from getting involved in the bloody and dangerous world that is her own. But Con’s not walking away and danger is like a second skin to him. He intends to protect his “family” and claim Mia, unless he gets crushed beneath the dual instincts of lust and rage…
This was an intense story. Con is former military, and Mia is the daughter of a drug lord. There was a lot of drama and danger in this story as Con and Mia developed feelings for each other, but yet they both wanted to keep the other safe from the rival drug gang. Sometimes you really do have to create your own family.
I skimmed a lot of this book, the proofreading and grammar were difficult to get past. The "beach" lingo was annoying. Honestly I wouldn't recommend this nor will I continue reading this series. Some of the characters were okay most were without depth, the themes of drug dealers daughter and raised on the street boys was overstated.
WOW!! Action packed! Navy Seal! Gangs! Family! justice!
The energy in this story is dynamite!
