⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
He just wanted to have a few days away from the family and the problems of being the fixer of the family, but his plans are blown up when he finds out that his best friend’s little sister will also be at the grand opening that he is attending. Of course, why wouldn’t she be, her family is opening a new hotel on a secluded island.
It wouldn’t be so bad if he weren’t intent on staying away from her. He’s walked away from her more than once and the last time he stayed away for almost two years, but the draw between them is electric and even though she hates him, Patrick Mulligan can’t deny that his feelings are deep for Kyla, and he will do anything to protect her. Which brings on more trouble for these two.
Kyla Costigan has worked hard to get where she is and has placed herself to take over for her father when he steps down, but there are threats to the family that have her being treated as though she can’t take care of herself and that have her father and her brother being overprotective and making her angry. She’s independent, smart, and driven.
This was a great story with great characters. I’ve loved Patrick since I first met him in his sister’s story, Savage Ruler. Patrick is the fixer of the family and the man that everyone seems to turn to for help when things turn sideways. His position in the family is changing and he is not ready for it, add in the fact that the woman he loves hates him, again, and his life is torture at this time. Patrick and Kyla have an explosive relationship, while most people see Patrick the model and the guy that gives so much to the YMCA, others see a model and then there are those that know the name and the family reputation of as a Mafia family. I really love Ms. Luciani’s books and the connection between the Reckless Reign, Sinfully Savage, Mafia Men of Mayhem, and the Severinov Bratva books. The characters are always great, and the stories are always full of action, suspense, sexy men and women and danger. I give this book a 5-star review and I am looking forward to the next book because I need to know how things are going to get fixed.
