I voluntarily review this book, highly recommended!
It's a sweet romance with a side of bitter. (Which I love.) The family moments Callie and Jack managed to steal for themselves are heartwarming, and little Jonathan is too precious for words. Meanwhile, the plot twists and turns, danger always lurks nearby, and you never know who to trust. The drama gradually builds steam (of all kinds. Oh my. *fans self*) and before you know it, you're racing toward a riveting and scary as hell final confrontation with the mobster, Victor Cabrini. All in all, I'd say it's quite a ride.
For sure, worth the read.
what is interesting about this romance is that we don't actually get to see callie and jack fall in love. we meet them after that. when things get complicated. jack is an undercover fbi agent and callie is an fbi informant. they should have never gotten close, but they did. and then callie gets pregnant. and when her fake boyfriend, victor's son angelo, figures it out he tries to kill jack and their baby.
except things get even more complicated, because jack escapes and angelo dies, and suddenly callie is beholden to victor, who believes that callie's son is his grandson. and they are trapped in this terrible pretense, for years they pretend. they pretend jack is dead. and he stays away and only sees his son via skype. and they pretend that angelo is their son's father, even though the only thing jack wants in this world is a life with callie and his son.
and so we get to witness how they live this half-life, together but not together. in love but unable to admit it. and it's so painful. even though we don't see them fall in love, they show their love for each other every chance they get. and they love their kid too. i'm not always a huge fan of kids in romance novels, but here, jonathan is the living proof of their love. and as he understands the situation more and more, things get harder and harder.
and you start to wonder will they ever get their big break? can they ever get rid of cabrini so that they might live the life they've been meant to live? it feels like it will never happen. and you just want it so much for them. i can't tell you how much i enjoyed their relationship. i love angst though, so this was the perfect formula for me.
**running target will publish on july 4, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/kensington books (lyrical underground) in exchange for my honest review.
Complete wreck worrying for Jack is his on the run from the mob boss, Victor Cabrini, who thinks Jack (well Waters) killed his son whom Victor thinks fathered Callie's child. Little does Victor know that Jack is the dad and his son wasn't who he seemed. Victor's hatred has Jack in hiding and no one can know he is that child's father for the safety of everyone. Jack is forced to have yearly secret in person visits with his son and video visits frequently so little Jonathan knows his Dah-dee. Jonathan was absolutely sweet and adorable and just enamored with his daddy. I was a nervous wreck when Victor was around that he would question this child and find out who Jonathan was calling daddy. So many close calls and Callie is torn to pieces what to do.
Corruption abounds with the FBI and Jack can trust no one and Victor seems untouchable.
The love Jack and Callie have for one another is sweet and you completely root for them to be together despite the seemingly insurmountable problems lingering.
Great read that will pull out every emotion. Loved it.
