There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak … shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...
And I’m not allowed to kill this one.
Shameless is book one in a trilogy.
Losing her brother crushed Lucia. Her life was never and will never be the same. She remembers that night and in fact it lives in her dreams. If only she could see the man's face who took his life. She stayed put just as he told her -- and in the end he was gone. Hunting down and checking into who could have wanted him dead has put her in the cross hairs of some very dangerous people. Noah Blake is furious -- and yes he is her brothers best friend -- keeping her safe is his only job. Down to monitoring her dates, spying on her -- but never crossing the line he wants to cross so badly. Now that Lucia has put herself in the path of a hitman everything is about to change.
Noah promised his best friend that he would watch over his sister. Keeping her safe has proven humorous but also dangerous. His emotions are on high and now she has dug herself into a hole that he has to get her out of. Running his security agency and keeping a tight watch on Lucia has him all over the place -- the boys are on his side but now things are changing. Lucia has open a door that should have been kept closed.
There are some excellent secondary characters here and I am sure we will also get their story. This one ends in a HUGE cliffhanger -- get ready -- this is a really good read -- mystery -- murder -- humor -- alpha males all around -- sassy and independent woman -- yup -- great job! Thank you for the ARC -- the cover is sleek and on point as well ....
