More than just a dimpled smile and chiseled jaw, Theo Amato’s quick-thinking and bold confidence made him successful. Heavy responsibilities left time for close friends and family, but nothing more. It wasn’t until he looked into a pair of big green eyes that his focus changed.
Full lips, a gorgeous face, and an endearing personality had him hooked from the start.
There was nothing Dahlia Kincaid enjoyed more than a good book, a funny movie, and a full night’s sleep. Long workdays meant she rarely had time for any of them, but the sacrifice was worth it to live in the city. It wasn’t until she met a man with model good looks and sexy veined hands that her life changed in ways she’d never even known to dream of.
Wickedly sweet, Theo gently and strategically pulled Dahlia from her rut, handing her the world in the process.
But shadows play tricks on the eyes, and life wasn’t always what it seemed.
It was better.
Dahlia Kincaid didn’t have the best growing up. She’s been alone her whole life. Bounced from foster home to foster home, she didn’t have a real family and didn’t trust much. She’s hardworking trying to juggle two jobs in a coffee shop and grocery store.
Theo Amata was rich, possessive, and businessman. His family was involved in mafia world. He met Dahlia when he bought a cup of coffee from where she worked out. He wanted her from that moment in his bed and his life. He was very open with everything except his involvement with the mafia. He was determined to give her freedom, love, family, and stuff she never had. He’s so tender with her. I fell in love with him, who wouldn’t.
They started dating and eventually fell in love. I loved Theo’s family. They were all very welcoming. It’s probably the Italians in them. Thank goodness there’s no ex-girlfriend drama because I’m getting fed up with those kind of books. As for character development, Dahlia not so much, but Theo did. 🙂
