This book is as gorgeous as its cover. Cat Porter’s prose is at once raw and poetic. There is an intimate quality about it and it grips you throughout the book. As a foodie and sufferer of wanderlust, I was completely enthralled with the author’s vivid descriptions of the landscape and food. I felt like I had truly joined the characters on their little respite away from the drama.
Overall, the storyline itself is as much a mafia romance (complete with the angst, suspense and 🔥🔥🔥 you’d expect) as it is an homage to Greece’s beauty and culture. Loved it.
“The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen
But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.
I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.
Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games
Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls
I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me.
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
In my heart, on my hands.
Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I.
