Of late, I’ve been going into my reads blind. Well, kind of blind. I haven’t been re-reading the blurb on books I’ve previously bought. If an ARC hits my kindle, I might look at the cover, but most times, I just start reading. A few people have asked me how I read so many books one straight after the other. Well, this is my way. Each start is a new adventure, a new love story and a new happy ever after (hopefully). Every day I get the opportunity to be adventurous, sexy, mysterious and alluring. Well, today I lived through grief, looked beyond the square walls of my existence and took a hit for love.
Addison, our main character, has lived through losing the love of her life. Now, normally, this storyline would have had me running for the hills. I was determined to keep going and not be so narrow-minded. Who am I to say that Addy had to stay miserable for the rest of her life? I know that things change, people change and life happens. You can try and avoid making connections but sometimes a fleeting moment can change your whole life. I needed to give Addison a chance to find happiness again.
A man walked into a bar…well, it was actually a restaurant, but who’s quibbling. Anyways…this man caught and held Addy’s attention. It had been a very long year since she had lost her husband and she’s only just starting to live again. Her best friend Sia has been her rock and a wealth of support. Sia has helped her sell the home she lived in with her husband and find a place without the haunting memories. They were sitting in a restaurant after the move when this man walked in. It was like everything slowed down and Addy couldn’t look away. She was mesmerised…but it felt wrong. Was it disloyal to be attracted to another man? She tells herself to forget him. But then…he appears in the same building she now lives in. Maybe it was fate.
Will this new attraction be her destruction?
Cole is the head of the “family” and his life is filled with murder, mayhem and meetings. A woman comes into his life and he is determined to keep her there. He knows it’s a risk and could put her in danger but her appeal is too great. He has to have her…he just hopes it won’t be the biggest mistake of his life.
Cole and Addy’s story was not an easy love story. Both of them have history and as the story unfolds, we find out that they are kind of connected. Their attraction to each other was easy to see and once they connect, the sizzle and spark jumped off the pages. We see loyalty between friends and family and dedication to a legacy that has been going for years. Wars between families cause death and destruction.
I really enjoyed reading Cole and I’m so glad that I was introduced to Tijan’s world. Yes, I’ll probably avoid her high school stuff but after meeting Carter Reed, it looks like I’ve got a few books ready and waiting for me.
I liked the premise and the original build up to the storyline. Addison Bowman is the beautiful widow that suffered a tragic loss. She's moving on with her life but at a snail's pace. She sees this beautiful man in a restaurant. He exudes power, confidence and danger. Addison instantly feels a connection, although they don't meet. They cross paths again, this time making eye contact and the story then begins to unfold.
Tijan provides mystery and suspense while the story unravels. Cole Mauricio is secretive and we don't get much from him except we eventually learn he's the head of one of the mafia families. I liked Cole; however, I needed more depth from him. He has the impression of complexity, dominance and totally alpha, but I craved experiencing it with him versus the implication.
The story is told from one point of view, Addison's. However, we heard Cole's point of view on two occasions later in the book. Diving more into his mind would have provided the added dimension I was desiring.
Tijan weaved a great plot, keeping me turning the pages quickly wanting to find out more. Additionally, a strong supporting cast of characters was introduced providing humor and increased dimension to the storyline.
All in all, it was enjoyable and I will be reading more from Tijan.
We have Addison and Cole. Addison is grieving the loss of her husband, best friend and love of her life. She is persuaded to move into a new apartment from the home she shared with her dead husband in order to move on. This is where she meets Cole. The relationship is fast paced and hot but there are secrets both with Cole and Her ex- in-laws.
It was such an enjoyable read. Cole shows just how easy to love he can be even if he is a killer.
I read it in one setting. Cole is the head of the Mauricio mafia. Carter Reed taught him everything he knew. In fact, read Carter Reed before you read Cole. You'll understand everything much better. It's a love story, and what a love story it is.
Tijan is one of my favorite authors and I'm so glad that I stumbled across one of her first books, Evil. This is what started all of this. Read them all. But if I had a reading order it would be this:
Fallen Crest series
And then everything else. But just remember, there are like seven plus books to Fallen Crest and two to Carter Reed and just one Cole book. So obviously, if money is an issue, start with Carter Reed and Cole first. You won't be disappointed.

It feels like the story of Cole and Addison was told many times before, and although there were some great scenes and surprising moments, not enough to...Read more
