Cindy Skaggs takes readers on a gritty adventure with this romantic suspense. I found myself pulled right into this story and taken along for the adventure along with the heroine and I loved how I struggled along with her to figure out just what it was she needed to remember. I'm not going to lie, I love mob stories and this one was no exception. This story had bits of everything, I laughed, I cried and I gasped out loud. The fast pace didn't distract from the relationships between the characters or their development. While I didn't feel I missed anything important by not reading her best friend's story I am certain to pick it up. There's so much I want to say about what I enjoyed in this story but it will give too much away and I do not want to spoil it for other readers. Just trust me that if you enjoy a good mob story full of suspense and romance this is a must-read.
The Story: Vicki Calvetti has made a good life for herself away from the family business. She no longer has any ties to the mob but one morning everything changes when she runs into the FBI, the Justice Department and a hit man. And if that wasn't enough she comes face to face with a man from her past and finds herself hip deep in the world of drugs, death and danger.
Vicki Calvetti made it out of the mob--or so she hoped. But when the old family hitman, the FBI, the Justice Department, and a smoking hot man from her past crash land on her doorstep, she learns she's not quite done.
An undercover cop chasing revenge, Blake Reilly gets the shock of his life when Vicki walks back into his life and into his club full of more drug dealers than a pharmaceutical convention.
Catching up doesn't take long, and their undeniable chemistry is full-speed-ahead until someone ends up dead, putting both their lives at risk unless Vicki can remember the secrets she paid to forget.
