My initial impression of Turo DeMarco from his introduction in Fury was of a smart, cool, calculated, well-organized criminal. I was pleasantly surprised by his vulnerability and the motivation behind his drive for success. The time he and Adriana spend together in Greece shows stripped down versions of themselves, without outside interference or influence, thus allowing readers to get a true sense of their personalities, and for both Turo and Adriana to learn a lot about each other and themselves. Of course the world couldn’t be held at bay indefinitely, and their idyllic Greek getaway came to an abrupt end, bringing with it the harsh realities of their lives. There are twists and turns, some that caught me by surprise, but worked perfectly. The plot is intricate and well thought out, although I found the pace a little uneven. My philosophy is you can never go wrong with a Cat Porter book, and Dagger in the Sea is no exception.
The main character is Artuno DeMarco, but just preferred to be called Turo. He was the illegitimate son of Erin Cavanaugh and Mauro Guardino. A very different set of parents. His father had left, leaving his mother pregnant and lovelorn. She was from a wealthy, old Chicago, Irish American family. She gave him her grandfather's name Arthur, and her family surname. She'd refused any contact from his father, brought him up in money and the best education, and gave him a job in her very successful business.
Unfortunately, his mobster father found him. Curiosity to meet his father for the first time, when he was summoned by this man who was an unknown force of nature. They bonded not making his mother the least bit happy. She knew how to balance her career and personal life. And suddenly he was out of a job. Going to work for his father was the biggest mistake of his life, but he would learn that the hard way.
The story is told mostly from Turo's point of view. That is until he is sent overseas on a job for his father. He meets a woman, their eyes lock. And in that thunderous split second, his life as he knew it changed course forever. Coppery brown waves of hair settled around her face and down her shoulders. Gray blue eyes held his, and the wind was sucked out of him. He would learn her name was Adriana Lavrentious. She would become his salvation or total destruction.
I became a fan of Cat Porter after reading Fury last year (best MC book I’ve ever read!). There was a small and intriguing character named Turo DeMarco in Fury and many readers loved him so much and begged Cat to write a book for him. Dagger in the Sea is his story, and it has been one of my most anticipated books this year. Once it landed on my kindle I have to admit I was a little nervous to start, worrying that I’d built the anticipation up too much in my head. Well Cat Porter blew my expectations out of the water with this book! I loved getting to know Turo better and seeing his beautiful relationship with Adriana unfold. He’s still the badass that I loved in Fury, but we get to see a whole other side to him here.
This book is also by far the author’s most romantic and lightest of all of her books. The story overflowed with romance and passion and it was just stunning. Her writing has never been better, as proven by my 17 pages of highlights!!
Dagger in the Sea is a must read, don’t miss out on Cat Porter’s stunning and epic love story!

This is tough for me. I am a huge fan of Cat and her writing style. That being said my heart is heavy because I did not fall in love with A Dagger in the Sea.Read more
