Determined to avoid the violence that claimed her family and friends, Carissa Elliott flees her hometown with a dangerous plan. She has proof that Calum DeMateo killed her father—now she just has to catch him. To do so, she’ll have to transform herself from small-town ingénue to New York crime boss.
When her path crosses with Alec McLean, the sexy stranger with whom she once shared a steamy nightclub kiss, things take an unexpected turn. Alec heads his family’s criminal organization, the kind of made man Carissa should want nothing to do with. But he also has a plan to take down Calum, and the flames that flicker between them are irresistible.
Will their vengeful quests jeopardize their chance at lasting love?
The author caught me right away and I couldn't put the book down. The storyline is fabulous and done with very good taste.
Sexy, romantic and deliciously dark, from start to finish. Boss seduces like fine chocolate and exotic wine. Once started, it is impossible to stop.
The author takes us on a journey while we watch Carissa learn who stole her father from her and we get to know the man who stole her heart. I love that there are a few extremely fun and entertaining female characters in this book all leading ladies in their own right.
