⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Being the oldest of the Garo family, Edon has taken over the running of the businesses since his father has retired. Edon is happy with being the head of the family and has no intentions of marrying yet. However, his father has other ideas. With one brother in a polyamorous relationship the oldest Tirana brother, and the Tirana Syndicate keeping them down in America with their holdings, Edon has enough to worry about and adding finding a wife is not a top priority.
Adriel Tirana wants nothing to do with marrying into the Syndicate and especially not to a Garo. However, the agreement between her father and Edon’s father years ago has put her on that track. She didn’t want anything to do with being married to any Syndicate man, but the pressure from her father and mother along with the pressure from Edon’s father leaves her no choice.
I liked Edon and Adriel’s story. The meddlesome fathers and the history of Syndicate betrothals put Edon and Adriel at odds, but when they decide that they need to work together to overcome the situation, they find that there is an attraction. The Garo and Tirana family go back a way and these two will have to find a way to appease their families and still be independent. I give this book a 4-star review and look forward to the next books in the trilogy.
