What is better than receiving books? Receiving books from someone that knows what your favorite genre and subgenre is and having them get it 100% right. Thanks the heavens for my beautiful friend Becky and for her introducing me to J.T. Geissinger. I already ordered the next book and you will all be getting my review from that one as soon as I am done.
1) Having the highest rank in a dominance hierarchy
2) The most powerful man in a group
3) Liam Black
He was a stranger to me, a dark and dangerous presence who materialized from the shadows one rainy night to save me from a vicious attack. I didn’t know his name or where he was from. All I knew was that the only place I’d ever felt safe was in his arms.
But safety is an illusion.
And not every savior is a hero.
And—as I’d soon find out—having an alpha save your life comes with a price.
Liam Black wanted something from me in return.
Book Review: 5 Stars
The blurb for the book doesn’t tell you much and in this case I like that. It would spoil the few twists and turns if it said anything.
Liam Black was alpha with capital A. He wants and needs to be in control at all times and no one ever defies him or says no to him. No one except Tru of-course. It backfires a few times but she does at least try to stand her ground and I appreciated that about her.
Liam’s background will break your heart. Little by little he opens up to Tru and we get to see more and more of who he truly is. I was captivated by his character.
Tru is also captivating, just in a very different way. She is shy but when nervous very talkative and does not have a filter. She knows what she wants and doesn’t let fear get in the way of doing and saying what she needs and wants.
I wouldn’t exactly classify this one as a Mafia romance. Yes, Liam is the head of the mafia, but we get to see very little of it. The main conflict in the book is between them. Its Liam getting over his past and moving forward. Its the constant push and drama between the main characters.
All in all this was an intense romance book and I absolutely loved it.
