I’m about to ask my driver to go to Red when all of a sudden, I spotted her in the window. She’s coming out of the building. It’s at that moment I feel as if I am not breathing. Time seems to stand still as I moved closer to the vehicle’s window. I can see she is just as I remember—stunning. Her hair is down, and the wind is lightly blowing it, giving off the illusion that she is floating. She’s wearing a smile that would brighten the Devil’s day. I take in the sun-dress she is wearing, the slightly fitted top of the dress showing the outline of her full breasts. Instantly, my soldier in my pants comes to attention. Then, as my smile appeared, it disappeared.

When she turned around to look back at the front door, a young man appeared. He takes her by the hand, then leads her down the sidewalk. My jaw goes stiff. My vision started to fade. I wanted to murder that mother-fucker for touching what’s mine. Before they get out of my view, I take a picture, then send it to Blaze.

“Blaze, find out all the information you can about this fuck-tard.”

Blaze sends back a text. “On it.”

Seeing Sarah with another man makes my blood boil. I’m enraged. I don’t want any man touching what is mine. I tell Finn, my driver, to follow the pair but to stay discreet. A couple of blocks, later they entered a coffee shop. Through the dingy front window, I see their silhouettes as they sit down in a booth at the front of the shop. I’m barely able to make anything out because the windows look so grungy. I shiver to think how clean the shop actually is.

I’m observing their interaction, trying to see if she is into him. When he reached over to take her hand, I checked out. I feel the anger seeping through me like I’m about to blow. I know the outcome will be catastrophic. I sensed my body moved but can’t stop my actions. It’s when I opened the door to the coffee shop that I realized where I’m at.

I squinted my eyes as I looked upon him. The man she is sitting across is holding her hand. He noticed me and his eyes rounded, as if he sensed I’m about to rip his appendages from his body. Sarah turned in her seat to face me. I’m in motion to start making my way over to her. I feel my phone vibrate. I take it out, viewing the caller ID—Blaze. Fuck!

OHHH!!! Who doesn’t love a good Mafia romance? Especially an Irish one with beautiful accents and language. I think I officially found my book husband. “wink wink”

Sarah is on break. After a horrible few days, she finally let her best friend talk her into visiting her in the big city. She doesn’t realize how her life is about to change. Especially when her first encounter in the city is bumping into the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on. And those eyes….those beautiful green eyes that shine like emeralds. Wow!! This is going to be the best trip ever.

Wilder O’Ddonnelll is head of the Irish Mafia. He is ruthless. What he wants, he gets and he wants the beautiful woman with the blue eyes. But fate will not make it easy on him, nor will she. Every time someone touches what is his, he sees red! Even if she doesn’t realize it yet. She is his and no one will take her from him. Not even herself. Someone likes to play games. But the games are getting dangerous and someone is out to take what is his. They don’t know who they are playing with.

This book was oh so dark and dirty. Wilder is an alpha male, unlike any you have read about before. He is bossy and stalkerish. He is demanding and will kill anyone who gets in his way. I loved his dominance throughout the book.

Sarah is sweet and kind, with a bit of sass. She really has had a tough road to travel and the alpha male in her life doesn’t make it any easier. What has this poor girl gotten into? To top it all all she is getting death threats. I truly felt her pain in this book.

Overall this book is a well written alpha male, mafia romance. It is full of lies, deception, hard truths, hot sin and unbreakable love. The magmatism between these characters is unreal. But I must warn, it has some triggers in it and is not to be read lightly. As with any mafia romance the danger is high and the blood and gore is everywhere. But underneath it all is a beautiful love story.
