Soon though, she finds herself in a desperate situation and she calls Denim’s number. She’s not sure what to expect from him, but she has few options right now to protect herself and her unborn baby.
Denim has a bit of a white knight complex, which is ironic considering he’s a very successful businessman with ventures both above and below board. However, he has the money and the power available to help others and he uses it to his advantage.
I’d never read anything by this author, so I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the unique storyline, the developed and damaged characters and the hope for a happy ending. You couldn’t help but hope for happiness for the young Lilijana, having been through so much hardship in her short life.
Will Denim be the one to give her a happy ending? Can she feel safer with a stranger than with her own father? Are the feelings that she’s feeling towards Denim genuine or is it just gratitude showing itself as love? Is Denim able or willing to settle down? His fast paced, dangerous life leaves little room for romance or family.
While I was rooting for Lilijana right from the first page, I also found myself rooting (and swooning) for Denim as the story progressed. Ugh, that Christmas present? I cried…
This is an entertaining mob romance, with suspense, violence, steamy sex and deep characters that you will grow to love. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
HEA. Standalone. No cliffhanger.
While there was much to be enjoyed about this book, certain aspects fell flat to me. In Elegant Retribution, we meet Lili and Denim. Lili is a young woman at 19, who has been through a lot of sorrow and heartbreak. Denim is a successful man, with a bit of a hero complex.
Certain parts of the book pertaining to Lili and why she is the way she is were done beautifully. Lili, to me, is a well developed character, who is just trying to find herself and her place in the world. Denim is tough, loyal, and while well meaning, he can be over the top with his protective nature.
Where my issue came in was the chemistry between the characters. I had trouble seeing the connection between the characters. I couldn't feel what was between them to make them want to be with each other. The communication was lacking and it distracted me from their story at times.
Overall, Elegant Retribution was a fairly good book. It takes place in Australia, which is a unique setting. The cast was well thought out, diverse, and strong. I enjoyed the realism into the harsh realities of life that was a large basis of the book.
