Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Kera and Deklan's story. They have met a few times casually, and are shocked when they are ordered to marry one another to settle Kera's father's debt. They follow through with the order, and the more time they spend together the more feelings start to develop. There is a good bit of crime boss drama and some sexy times...and they get a HEA ending.
POV: This was told in Kera's POV. I think it would've added a lot to the story to have Deklan's POV too.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. I never skimmed, and I thought it flowed well.
Instalove: No, they take a while to develop stronger feelings (not much, but I wouldn't classify it as instalove).
H rating: 4 stars. Deklan. I liked him. I think because I liked him it made it even harder for me to like the h.
h rating: 2.5 stars. Kera. She bugged me a good bit. She would go from sniveling submissive type to a demanding brat! Not a h I appreciate...
Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed
Push/Pull: Not really.
Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Yes
Safe sex: No
OW/OM drama: Yes, but not in the typical way
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had pretty good closure with a jump ahead epilogue and a HEA ending.
How I got it: I paid the $3.99 for it on Amazon.
Kera O'Conner was betrothed to the mafia prince Sean Foley at the age of fifteen to pay back her father's gambling debts. Her father was a key player for the mafia that laundered money through his businesses for the mafia. Kera was kidnapped and held for ransom by unknown players for his debts. Her father was forced to go to the Foley's to get the ransom money. He readily agreed to repayment by betrothing his young daughter to the spoiled son of the Foley family. Kera has accepted her fate and is willing to honor her father's debt. She's grateful to be alive and marrying into the Foley family guarantees her future. On the day of the wedding the agreement is changed. Rather than marrying the man she was promised to she's forced to marry his enforcer, Deklan Kearney, a complete stranger.
Deklan Kearney is shocked when Sean Foley demands that he marry Kera O'Conner. He has to prove his loyalty to Sean and the family. He vows that he will honor the family and honor Kera as his wife. He will protect her, take care of her, and give her a life she's worthy of living.
Two strangers are bound together in marriage. What they didn't anticipate was falling in love. They also didn't anticipate the past coming back in full force and placing Kera's life in danger once again. They also didn't anticipate the betrayal that could take both of their lives. The only thing they can do is survive their world and hold onto their love.
Shay Savage once again held me captive with this fast paced thrilling novel. The story itself focuses more on the romance rather than the dark dealings of the mafia, which can overshadow the romance. It has the perfect combination of romance and dark suspense.
I fell in love with Deklan! Holy smokes that guy is the sweetest henchman I've ever read!! And the mouth on that man is very dirty....and I loved every single word!!
I've read quite a few of Shay Savage's books and I'm amazed at how she can write such different types of books. Each one is so unique and so different from her other works. And it's always something that hasn't been done before.
With Deklan I loved reading about the mafia angle and loved that instead of marrying the mafia son, she has to marry Deklan the HENCHMAN! But with typical Savage fashion she manages to blow my mind with the story. It was not what I was expecting at all! Kudos to her for keeping this gal who reads several books a week in her toes!
Grab your copy, you are going to want to meet Deklan!!
