It's been a miss for me these past few reads. This is a new author and I know it's tough to put yourself out there so bravo on that. However I was made aware that a character in this release was in some previous books so maybe if I grab those up my thoughts might change!
Lar Delaney is a bad boy with high standards. Lar is in the family business but wishes there was a different life for him. His Uncle Frank might let that happen if he and his cousin do one more job. Lar has to take out the person who killed his Uncle’s son. That is not going to be easy as the target is the only woman Lar has ever loved or felt anything for.
Moria was supposed to be dead. But it turns out the woman of his dreams is alive and well but wrapped up in some events that don’t make sense. Trying to make sense of who might have put the murders in motion, Moria and Lars are running out of time before Uncle Frank hires a hit on them both.
This had a lot of suspense in it but again the characters just weren’t in it for me. There was a lot of back and forth and things I had to try to figure out that I shouldn’t have had to. The storyline is decent but the push and pull again was too much. If you love you some espionage, arms trafficking and mafia romance then this is the book for you!
Thank you for the ARC! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath the Sheets.
