Hot! This book is a MUST READ!
First the first page to the last sentence, NATE had me by the throat and would not let me go. I turned the pages of this naughty little read until there were no more words. One incredibly alpha mafia boss, the young girl that he saved and the attraction that should be off limits between them. Sounds like a story you’ve read a million times, yes? Don’t judge this man and this story by other cliches. If I had, I would have missed out on one ridiciously incredible read!
Nate Franco is not your regular hero. He’s cold blooded, commanding and at times, just plain scary. He’s loyal to men under his rule. They are his family and the underground syndicate of Philadelphia is his to rule as he sees fit. When he saved a young girl who was almost killed in a hit on her family, he took on another role – protector and hero to Sabrina. She becomes his ward and he does what he must to keep her safe from those who would see her dead. He never planned for Sabrina to go from that scared thirteen year old girl to a beautiful young woman of eighteen with her own plans and ideas of what she wants for her life.
And Sabrina wants Nate.
These two have amazing off the wall chemistry. From the moment he sets eyes on Sabrina, the attraction overwhelms Nate. She’s wise beyond her years. Smart and determined to have everything. It was hard not to admire her and I found myself cheering her on in her quest to get her man. Still Nate’s life is a dark one, filled with underhanded schemes, illegal activities and death. No matter how much he wants Sabrina away from his business, Sabrina has her mind made up. She wants Nate and everything that being his entails.
Oh, this was a wonderful change of pace for me and my first read from Celia. It most definitely will not be my last! The story was flawlessly written, flowed beautifully and kept me happy all the way through. Nate and Sabrina were just amazing together, and after a few chapters it didn’t remotely matter that Sabrina was very much younger than Nate. I very much hope that brothers Peter and David as well as Irish intern Angus get to tell their stories soon! The secondary characters made this book and had me wanting more pages, more history, just more!
Fantastic, Celia! You just got yourself a new fan!
Five Dark Protector Stars!
I rescued Sabrina from a mafia bloodbath when she was thirteen. Doing right by her became a priority for me, even while I was busy as the new head of the Philly syndicate. I sent her to the best boarding schools and kept her as far away from the life as possible. It worked perfectly. Until she turned 18. Until she came home. Until I realized that the timid girl was gone and in her place lived a smart mouth, a wicked imagination, and a body that demanded my attention. Who am I? I’m F*cked. Nice to meet you.
