When April Linus’ best friends find themselves in trouble with the Miami Mafia, the former heiress turns to an even more dangerous criminal for help… her father.
Not an easy decision for the young, single mother who found herself pregnant at nineteen and forced to choose between her trust fund and having a baby. April’s father agrees to loan her the money, if she moves home for a few months so he can get to know his grandchild. Before she can decide what to do, she comes face to face with the last man she ever expected to see again… her father’s former bodyguard who disappeared five years ago after she slept with him.
Black Ops operative Jonas Ostergaard made a nearly fatal mistake the last time he was in Key West. After working his way into Philip Linus’ circle of trust, Jonas let the Arms Dealer’s beautiful, kindhearted daughter distract him from his mission. He was yanked off the job by his superiors, but now he’s back to stop Linus from selling a dangerous new technology on the black market.
Needing to prove himself to save his job, Jonas is determined to keep his distance from April this time. But when he suspects she knows more about her father’s illegal business dealings than she admits, he’s torn between protecting her and uncovering the truth.
Passion ignites when April and Jonas end up on the run dodging arms dealers in the steamy Amazon rainforest, but April wonders what kind of relationship she could have with a man who has more secrets than she does. A man who could disappear at any moment and leave her heart in tatters.
Trapped between loyalty to her father and a new allegiance with the man she’s falling in love with, April realizes none of it will matter if they don’t escape the jungle alive.
April Linus is the daughter of a very bad man. But when she found she was pregnant, she knew her father would kill the man responsible so she took off. He tried to force her to come home but with some divine intervention of some drag queens, she was able to avoid his clutches. That is until 4 1/2 years later……
Jonas Ostergaard is an undercover cooperative. When he is called from his assignment in Russia back to the states for the mission he was pulled from, he becomes a tad bit curious as to why. With the cover story of being in jail for the last 4 1/2 years he works his way back into the Linus compound. This time he is in search of a secret weapon. Little does he know that another weapon in the size of a 4 year old could be his demise.
When April’s hand is forced, she has no choice but to do her father’s bidding. Even though she does not want her son any where near her father, he has a very convincing way of making her stay.
When a blast from the past meets April on her first day back home, she gets worried. Worried that the secrets she worked so hard to hide will be revealed. The man she once cared for may just be the one to undo it all.
This book was a classic mob love story. It is full of danger, love and action. This steady paced story has so much action going on that there is never a dull moment. With secrets, danger and hot sex, this book is sure to blow your mind.
I enjoyed the characters and the chemistry between Jonas and April. They are drawn to one another like a moth to a flame and he has no way of denying it, no matter how hard her tries.
If you love danger and hot sexy alpha males with attitude, then this book is for you. It has everything to make a reader flip those pages like they can’t stop the madness. So break out the wine and sit tight, because this book is a roller coaster ride of excitement.
