The Quick and Dirty: Slow, high heat burn in the Chicago criminal world. Alpha male + strong female MC.
I am OBSESSED with this series. It has only gotten better with each new installment and this last one had me up until 3 reading it! While I’m usually too impatient for slow burns, this one was slow but high heat and well worth the wait. The web that the author weaves throughout each book keeps you turning pages to see what happens next. If you’ve read the other books, we’ve met these two characters before so knowing that I’d get their story in this book was so satisfying. I love the two of them and their banter. Mariah is no wilting violet and gives as good as she gets. Javier is the quintessential alpha male right-hand to the crime boss. LOVE LOVE LOVE these books. Did I mention that already? If you’re into criminal/dark romantic suspense, pick up this series. You can thank me later. 😉
I’m a man with an immoral compass. A convicted killer in one country and the right-hand to the devil in another.
Javier Lucas offers death without mercy—something my enemies don’t live long enough to tell, but the carnage left behind paints a brutal story. I have no soul. No regrets. This is who I am, and I embrace the darkness that flows through my veins while blood stains my skin.
And I’ve never wanted more until…
Our eyes met and my world took a pause. One flirty exchange and I vowed to tame her wildness.
Fate is a word I now believed in.
Because it led me to her. To my beautiful little criminal.
ELENA M. REYES
Elena M. Reyes is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art: whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.
She’s a short and sassy Latina with an adorable pup, a kiddo that keeps her on her toes, and a husband who claims she’ll cause him to go bald prematurely. Lol
