Believe a book by its cover, this is a hot, fast paced gripping read.
Yep, hot man on the cover, an enticing plot, I got hooked on and I'm glad I took the bait.
I haven't read previous books but wish I had prior to this book, I know through reading this something happens to a character in the previous book so I don't think I could go back in the series now knowing that. This could in theory be read as a standalone but I would advise starting from the beginning.
I did feel I had started this book half way through something because of references to previous events but I quickly picked up the story as the main focus was on Hadley and Sean.
A few things had me lost not knowing who was who and what the organisations were, I recommend reading the glossary at the beginning of the book for the Italian references, something I had to look back on.
Hadley and Sean's first encounter seemed like a chance meeting? Sean getting away from it all, seeking solace by a river, grieving, when he is aproached by Hadley in concern, well after she propositions him for $20.
Hadley is a women with backbone a strong character a daughter of some sort of Mafia family leader so she doesn't have chance meetings, she is a soldier doing her father's bidding in an army she no longer wants to be a part of.
Sean, a 17 year old boy?
let me tell you Sean does not act,speak or do any other practice like a 17 year old boy, he is all man and I struggled to believe that was his age with his character that boyman is hot!.
After the dust settles has an intense plot with danger,bloodshed and a Romeo and Juliette feel.
Great writing told in dual pov's, I read in one sitting, I was so gripped wanting to know how everything would pan out.
My first book by this author and looking forward to more in this series.

I’m not your average seventeen-year-old boy.
What other teenage boy do you know of, is working alongside their father in a top-secret government agency, and has been since they were fifteen?
Unheard of? Yes probably.
After spending years searching for my place in this world, I jumped at the opportunity to help my father. What I didn’t expect was the possibility that our work could flow over and harm our family.
Yet that’s exactly what happened…….
I thought I’d found, and then lost the girl who would forever hold my heart – until a sexy ass stranger crossed my path under the Brooklyn Bridge.
I want this girl, like I’ve never wanted anyone. She makes me feel things that I should feel guilty about, that I shouldn’t be needing as desperately as I do.
Only there’s a catch …………. She has secrets, ones that could have a devastating impact.
He was supposed to be a job.
A target that needed to be eliminated.
A message that we weren’t a family to mess with.
When my chance came, I couldn’t do it. There was a presence about him that drew me in. I went from wanting to kill him, to wanting him in my arms.
From that moment on he became my obsession….
I’m no good for him, which is why I should stay away from him. I will only destroy him because I’m broken, a girl with a dark past - the daughter of an Italian mobster. Our family is one of the largest in Brooklyn.
I need to escape my father, and this life.
I need someone to swoop in and save me, but I’m scared because bad things happen to me – and the people I love.
