Four Books

Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.
Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.
Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.
Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.
Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.

our thoughts

A wonderful creative story. There are not many authors that could take two such volatile lifestyles, and incorporate them into the same story line. I was a bit reluctant reading the description and learning that Alex is a Mafia Princess that find herself in the clutches of a Biker Gang. This seemed so complicated that I couldn't understand how they would be smoothed together, and still retain the realistic nature that an great story demands. Much to my surprise this author masterfully created the story with both volatile environments wrapping up splendidly. The relationship between Ryan & Alex is far from easy or cozy. This is a knock down drag out type of romance that will break your heart on several occasions. This was a great debut for the series, and very wonderful experience with such a talented author. Now with no time in the story to relish in the content ending I was anticipating more from this couple, but I see that the next book with be Duke and Nic. I just hope that the same exhilarating and suspenseful adventure can continue with this couple.
