this poor excuse for living has morals and ethics, and if she dies, it is going to be with that.
enter lev: a man who isn't quite right, (not psycho) just not right, still with people who love him. and he finds this little mouse. and suddenly, he's not not quite right anymore. he has some to take care of and love and grow, not just her, but himself.
and it's great. Love this story ...:) awesome read to make you go awww. and yeah, steamy scenes but you know, they work up to it, its organic and not this insta love sex fest.
sooo how about the oldest brother??? where is his book? and please not the sister! lol
The premise sounded good but the execution was just off for me.
Firstly, Belle's writing and story telling are good. No complaints about that. However, the character development felt too rushed in particular Mina. She went from a street kid to being confident with a stranger and his child plus his family and business. Plus finding a brother she didn't know exists who turns out to be a jerk on their first meeting and then the sudden turn around in their relationship was just weird. These parts didn't feel realistic at all.
The mafia side of this was a little ridiculous. Mortal enemies just don't become best mates again because a of a women, no matter who they are. Again very unrealistic.
Surprisingly I did finish this book as I thought it may improve, but won't be back for any more in this series.
It appears that I'm in the minority with the low star reviews but this may appeal to you so give it a try if the premise tickles your fancy.
Lev is a man that many people do not understand. He has a quirk that makes him view himself as not normal - so emotions and feelings do not mean anything to him. He is dreamy and he knows how to make you feel wanted even when he says things that may be hurtful. He had an odd sense of protectiveness over Mina that he hasn't experienced with another woman before. He first meets Mina in a very compromising position and gives her options - she chooses an option that changes their lives forever.
Mina is a woman who had reached one of the lowest points in her life and she knows she can't give up. She is in over her head and doesn't know what to do. She does the unthinkable and then starts to question herself afterwards. She knows what she did was wrong, but did she have any other choice? She never expected to walk out and be confronted by a man who treated her like no one else ever had. The same man that would change her life forever.
As they forged a relationship, Mina starts to understand some of the quirks that make up Lev. She understands that it takes time with him and that he is different, but in her mind, that makes him extraordinary. She seems to be developing more friendships than just with the mysterious man who gave her an option she couldn't refuse. Lev's sister, Nastasia, is very vocal and opinionated, but she forges a true friendship with Mina over a shopping trip. As Mina's heart starts to swell with love and affection towards this man and his family, she cannot believe that life was giving her a second chance at happiness.
The secondary characters make you want to dive into their lives even more. Sasha, Lev's brother, and Nastasia have stories that are waiting to be told. Anika and Vik - friends of the family - are intertwined within those stories waiting. We also meet Cora and Alessio - who may get stories of their own! You fall in love with Lev and Mina, but you also fall in love with the close knit family and Belle makes you root for all of them to find true happiness. You get glimpses of their struggles from this book and you become invested in their stories already!
But relationships are not all happy. I love that this relationship between the main characters in not insta-love. You get to watch as they grow as friends and turn into something more. As in any relationship, instances in life have good times and bad times. Can Mina understand Lev's unusual habits? Can Lev trust someone else after the devastation he's surfaced in the past? Can Mina handle the life of Lev and the different sides to his complex nature? Can Lev finally feel safe? Can the two actually make a life out of their unusual start?
Well...you will have to find out for yourself! Don't wait too long! You'll miss out on this amazing love story!
