“Do you want to take me?”
That's what she said to me after she stepped out of the pool, skin dripping wet, her body on display to tempt me.
A simple babysitting job—that's all it was meant to be. Show her some element of the life she'd been kept from. But she couldn’t keep her pretty mouth shut when I showed her what she asked me for, and I couldn't keep my damned eyes off her.
Sofia Vico was the one woman no one touched. Forbidden.
I should have stayed away. Should have done as Quinn asked and kept her safe. But I crossed the line and broke the rules.
“The things I could show you.“
This started out as an act of defiance against my father—a way to finally fill in the blanks I’d lived with my whole life. But the doors to the cage I'd been kept in had suddenly been flung wide open, and I wasn’t ready for the truth waiting for me. Or for Carter Wade.
He was my saviour in the dark, muddied underworld I knew nothing of. A man with skills that both frightened and aroused me. And if I thought scars and guns were the worst I’d have to face, I was wrong. Murder, kidnapping, and a family torn in two was our consequence. Yet he still risked everything, including his life. For me.

Forbidden Eyes, A Cane Novel #4
Gripping, intense, addictive, I just could not put this book down!
Forbidden Eyes is Sofia Vico's story, the sheltered daughter of Benjamin Vico and Hope from the previous book in the series. I read the first book in this series and found it a little too dark for me and I haven't read the previous book before this and after reading about Benjamin Vico in this book, damn, I am sore torn, I really don't like Benjamin Vico at all, he's dark, cruel, he's not just an overbearing protective father, he is so much more, a criminal, and evil to the core. Sofia has no idea who her father is, she has no idea of the kind of business her father is involved in, she hasn't seen the side of him that makes men fear him until she does, until her eyes are opened, and that's a pivotal point in Sofia's life.
Sofia has been a sheltered young woman with no close friends, she studies and that's basically her life. Sofia is like a caged bird, a nineteen-year-old young woman with clipped wings.
Curiosity kills the cat as they say and after being ordered to stay home by her father when she had been looking forward to a party, she rebels, runs away and goes to stay with her uncle Quinn who is her mother's brother. Sofia wants answers, she wants to know why men fear her father, she wants to know who she is. Sofia didn't expect to find out what she does and in the process meets Carter Wade.
Carter Wade was taken in by Quinn Cane when he was a young boy, he now works for Quinn and is like his right-hand man, he runs the casino businesses and more. He's feared among men, he's alluring, sexy and dangerous.
"There aren't any rainbows here Fia. I'm not that kind of man. You want sweetheart ideals, you'll have to go look elsewhere"
Sofia never expected to fall for a man so similar to what she was running away from but she does. Carter is hot, sexy, but he is nothing like the other men in this series, he's caring and so swoon-worthy, with a dark edge to him that begins to soften when he meets Sofia.
All hell breaks loose when Benjamin Vico discovers his daughter's innocence has been ruined by Carter Wade. There is an all-out war between the families who were once allies. Wow, it was like a dark Romeo and Juliet.
A brilliantly balanced plot and a great collaboration with these two authors. I was hooked from the first pages and the whirlwind of a plot gripped me to the very end.
A Mafia romance must-read.sizzling hot, action-packed and intense.
I finished with unanswered questions, I can't wait to see what these two authors bring next, I want more sneak peeks of Sofia and Carter and I am certainly looking forward to more from Charlotte E. Hart & Rachel De Lune.
*Can be read as a standalone, leads to a hea.
