Cole by Tijan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review and I have given it 5 stars.
I have always been intrigued by Tijan but never had the chance to actually read anything by this author, so when this opportunity presented itself I grabbed it with both hands.
I aren't go to bore you by reciting the blurb or by giving you a point by point account of what happens and I aren't going to fill my review up with memes and gifs but what you will get is my honest opinion on how I felt as I entered Tijan's world for the first time.
What I felt was complete and utter adoration and a sense of "why the hell have I never read anything by Tijan before?". The author's writing capability had be spellbound and hooked from the very beginning. I couldn't put it down! I loved it. Loved every single damn word!
Since it was a mafia romance, I was expecting something a little darker but I still loved it, especially once I realized where the story line was taking us.
"But it's not a mafia story. It's a love story."
And what a love story it was! My heart actually ached. It ached for Addison and it ached for Cole.
Addison is so strong. She is finally learning to live again and moving on from losing the love of her life only to be sucked back into a life she hadn't even realized she had been part of already once before and I had expected Cole to be a wall of impenetrable ice but found he was rather the opposite. So what if he kept the being the head of a mafia family a secret but there was just something so damn likable about him. Together though they were just perfect for each other and I absolutely loved their scenes together.
However I did feel that the ending was a tad bit rushed, I would have loved to have read from them but hey ho it wasn't to be.
I would definitely recommend this to fellow mafia romance lovers, You won't be disappointed.
I shouldn’t have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…
