They met under summer showers …
Vera Markovic only wanted a vacation away from New York where everyone knows her as a Russian Mafiya printsessa of the Markovic Bratva. She didn’t expect to find something worth remembering. And definitely not a man like Alfie Shelby.
They fell in love when the leaves changed colors …
As New York City’s notorious fixer, Alfie Shelby always gets what he wants—and when he sets his eyes on Vera, he’ll do anything to keep her … even if she’s not sure she wants to be kept.
And they nearly lost it all when the snow started to fall …
She wants nothing to do with a gangster.
A life of crime is all he knows.
But neither can deny what they have, even when forces beyond their control try to keep them apart.

This book was bloody fantastic. I actually think it may be my favorite London Miller book to date. Alfie was everything…sigh. Miz Miller’s writing is always excellent, so it goes without saying that this was another very well-written book. It was perfectly paced. It was a decent length page wise and took me around three hours to finish reading. It was told through both Alfie and Vera’s POV. The plot was super engaging and kept me turning the pages. Last, it was all wrapped up in an ok HAPPY FOR NOW ending. There were some loose ends, so I suspect more books are coming. I assume we will be seeing more of this couple in those books.
ALFIE…Alfie was just perfect. From his name to his accent, to the way he dressed. I loved him. In fact, Alfie is definitely in the top five of favorite book boyfriends ever! He was sexy as f-ck. He was bada$$. He was alpha. He was also sweet, and very much taken by Vera right from the start.
VERA…Vera was an excellent character as well. She was strong. She was sweet. She was feisty. She was independent, and she was very much taken by Alfie right from the start.
This book had a ton of excellent secondary characters. I suspect a few may get books of their own(?) I hope so, anyway. I was especially curious to read more about Siris (someone Alfie does business with) and Frances (Vera’s friend and employee). I was also really intrigued by both of Vera’s brothers. And, one of the loose ends at the end of this book concerned Alfie’s sister (Feather) and Lachlan. I am super curious to see how that situation is going to play out.
Medium. There were a good amount of suitably spicy sex scenes in this one. The frequency felt organic to the story. This couple also has amazing on page chemistry.
~ANGST LEVEL – SEXUAL HISTORIES~
Lowish. There really wasn’t much angst relationship wise here. This is what I would call an “insta-love” easy peasy type of read. At least as far as the relationship goes. This couple has a few bumps in the road, but they are pretty solid from the minute they meet. Neither were virgins. The past sex lives stuff is kept to a minimum. There was no OW or OM drama either.
~IN THE END~
I loved it. From the beginning to the end this one had me enthralled. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect. The plot was intricate and well developed. The secondary characters were interesting. The sex was hot. Vera was a pretty perfect heroine, and I simply ADORED Alfie. I really have nothing left to say other than you really should consider nabbing this one up ASAP.
