She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist.
The first night…
I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.
She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head.
Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me.
Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.
Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.
And she complicates things.
She thinks she is my disgrace. Truth is, my fall had begun the moment I’d laid eyes on her.

I had to go back and check because I was SURE I had read at least one book by this author previously but low and behold I had not! Clearly, that is an oversight I will be correcting in the very near future.
I LOVED this book. The writing was fantastic, and the plot was engaging. The pace was (mostly) spot on. It was sexy and dirty. It had twists and turns. It had action. It had angst. It had drama. It had secrets. It had interesting secondary characters. Sofia and Raphael from Dishonorable feature somewhat in it. I haven’t read that book YET but if you have then I am sure you know that the hero of this book is Raphael’s twin brother and the heroine is Sofia’s sister. We also get a brief glimpse at Raphael and Damon’s brother Zach. Call me intrigued to read more about him.
Both main characters were extremely likable. I did think that Lina came across a bit…
too stupid to live naive at times. Especially concerning her interactions with the Russian mob but I found her an enjoyable heroine for the most part. Damon…now Damon was HOT. He was Dominate and angry and spanky. All things I love in a hero.
So like I said I enjoyed this one. It was just about a 5-Star read. I did find that after the BIG drama the book dragged a little for me. Probably the last 20% or so could have moved along a little faster. In any case, this still gets the huge two thumbs up from yours truly.
