My father was the Underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me. My life was in shambles until Victor Pastore, one of New York’s most notorious gangsters and my late father’s best friend, recruited me to work for him.
Everyone expected me to walk in my father’s shadow, to be the prodigal son, the next big thing to hit the mob. I was torn between filling those expectations and walking the straight line my mother wished I had. Nothing made sense and I felt as if I was just passing through life.
The only beacon of light in my otherwise dark world was the one girl that was off limits to me. The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul.
She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.
My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s nightclubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki. I struggle for people to acknowledge me for the woman I am and not for the men in my life. I’m fighting a losing battle.
There is only one person who sees me for me, my Mikey.
He’s hot as hell.
He’s completely unattainable, but oh so tempting.
So I’ve been watching this Author for a while now and although I was intrigued by the Tempted Series I had yet to take the plunge. However, now that I’ve taken that plunge, I’m kicking myself for having waited so long!
Mikey and Nicole’s story was pretty hot right out the gate. The angst that builds up as you go throughout the story was some of the most intense stuff I have ever read. The lead up to them finally getting together was definitely intense. You will for sure find yourself running to have a few cold showers throughout the story.
To top it all off, the twists, turns ad suspense riddled throughout were awesome. Just when you think you’ll have figured out what’s about to happen next, another turn of events will pop up and you will be thrown off track all over again.
The only downside I found with this one was the editing. The grammatical errors threw me off a few times, but other than that this was a great read that I highly recommend.
