BOOK 1 I tend to shy away from mafia, illegal business type books, but the blurb absolutely dragged me in. The immediate connection between Emilia and Alex is intense and immediately draws you into their story.
Emilia is a broken woman. After finding her mother dead on the floor of their trailer, she travels to AZ in search of the father she never met. While on her journey, she meets Alex. Alex is a tough dude. The son of the leader of the Mexican cartel, he runs into Emilia at a junky hotel completely by chance. Knowing he needs to stay away from her, he finds he can't. This story is about their meeting, the getting to know you better part, the finally giving in to their carnal desires and the truth about everything Alex is trying to hide as well as the truth about what Emilia suspects about the circumstances surrounding her mothers death.
Can two broken souls unknowingly bound together, make it? Well, you don't get the answer in this book because it ends with a cliffy for book two. But this should be on everyone's to-read list!
BOOK 2 The ending I was hoping for and was so excited that it happened! Because I'm reviewing these books together for the blog, I'm not going to recap the cliff hanger from book 1. Sorry, not sorry.
This is the continuation of Emilia and Alex's story. But, now we have a love triangle between Emilia, Alex and Alex's brother, Sam. The events from the cliffy are what lead to Sam developing feelings for Emilia and this story gets intense, and fast. If you read the first one, you are definitely going to want to grab this one to get rid of the emotional coma the first book left you in.
Similar to the first one, this book also isn't sunshine and rainbows because I mean we are talking about the cartel. The push and pull between all of the characters gives you all the feels and you literally can't put the book down until you've read the ending.
