THIS BOOK OH MY GOD!!!
Vera is a mafia princess who hates everything her father and his life stands for. She wants nothing to do with hi or his empire. On a much needed vacation, she meets his beautiful, sinister stranger who makes her crave so much. She years for him even after she comes back to her normal life. What she doesn’t know about Alfie Shelby is that he embodies everything she hates about her father’s business.
Alfie is a gangster roughened by his years of experience with thugs and mobsters there isn’t much that escapes his notice. But he certainly noticed Vera Markovic and covets her with a violence he’s never felt. He knows all about her and her family but that didn’t stop him from going after her. Alfie is determined to keep Vera even if she doesn’t know it yet.
You guys I love love love the stories London Miller comes up with. They give my heart this sort of sweet heartache that makes me happy and want to cry. The angst, the passion and all the forbidden feel to this story just made me want to keep reading it forever.
I absolutely adore Vera. I admire the way she figured out she couldn’t possibly align herself with her father’s business and instead of silently taking it all, she decided to step up and remove herself from the toxic environment. She stood up for what she believed it and made it happen for her. I’ll admit, I was a bit frustrated with her at times but except for that I genuinely loved her character.
Alfie, urgh when he says “luv” my whole World stops and no it is not an exaggeration. I just really really REALLY LOVE Alfie, okay? I love how he is a roughened up criminal but still a smooth mofo when it comes to Vera. I adore the way he felt of Vera and GOD his intensity is off the charts hot. How can you not love him? He is charming, dangerous, caring and damn it so controlled. I LOVE IT! I actually swooned for five minutes straight with his first interaction with Vera and then showing up to see her in the rain?? THAT IS COMMITMENT PEOPLE!!! AHHH just so much love for this man. *ugly sobs*
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.
