“The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen
But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.
I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.
Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games
Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls
I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder--
In my heart, on my hands.
Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I
Not what I was expecting.
I became intrigued with Turo in the book Fury and the first few chapters I was still intrigued, however, it became a very long romance story.
Turo was a part of the Mafia, he had an element of danger and mystery and I was so looking forward to his story.
Cat Porter always writes quality, she leaves no stone upturned with her writing, she is very descriptive to the point you can almost taste and smell what is being described.
This is the story of Turo who is being sent on a mission to Greace by his Father who is head of the Mafia and while he is there falls for a beautiful woman Adriana.
The journey is enchanting and Adriana takes Turo on all the sights, explains the history of the breathtaking Island and their whirlwind romance develops.
There's story's of myth's legends and tales, history and a beautiful description of the food and the Island from Adriana.
From the moment I met him I could feel the earth under me giving way. A wild landslide. A landslide I was powerless to stop.
Adri was a creature of the bright sun and the velvet night. She evoked a new desire I never thought I had in me.
This is a beautiful romance story but for me lacked the element of danger and angst that drew me to Cat Porters writing in the first place. I got bored with the history and descriptions but appreciated the knowledge.
Around 75%, finally! some action when kidnappers where involved in the plot and I eventually got the excitement I crave in a book but in-between and leading up to this point all I can say is, it was very beautiful, but not for me.
Other characters intrigued me more, because it's the bad guys I love to read about but Turo didn't come across all that bad at all, he was romantic, swoon worthy and although he said all the right romantic words my fascination for him had fizzled out.
Cat writes beautiful and poetic words and sensual sex scenes, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a summer or lazy day read, there isn't as much Mafia action as I thought there would be.
Grab yourself some strawberries and Turo
