What it’s about
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert begins a smoking hot new series about the O’Malley family-wealthy, powerful, dangerous and seething with scandal.
Teague O’Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family’s name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a “business” alliance, Teague’s ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and vows he will do everything in his power to protect her.
Everyone knows the O’Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn’t aware just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. But the closer they get, the more trouble they’re in. Because Callie’s keeping a dark secret-and what Teague doesn’t know could get him killed.
3.5 Family Loving Stars!
I absolutely enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. I liked the story-line and all the characters…well most of them.
Teague and Callie will be married to unite their powerful “Families” who will then dominate the underworld of Boston. Teague tows the line as does Callie, but Callie has a dark secret that can and will cause a war between the three powerful Boston mob families.
I loved Teague O’Malley, he’s a strong, fiercely protective, loyal hero who wants to change things, things within “The Family”, not for himself, but for his younger brothers and sisters. Callie Sheridan is perfect for Teague, and being the “Sheridan Heir”, she’s also striving to make changes within her “Family” as well. What neither of them expected was the instant off the charts chemistry they shared!!
“I could finish you like this, but I’m dying to taste you”
“I might not deserve you, but I’m sure as fuck going to do right by you.”
This book kept me on edge!! I loved both the hero and heroine, the secondary characters, and I’m dying to see what’s in store for the siblings. I was saddened by the outcome of one of the characters, but things happen that are beyond control and this book shows that.
I’ve read and enjoyed a couple other books by this author. I like her writing, and am looking forward the rest of the series!!
