I shouldn't have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his nameā€¦

Cole Mauricio.

    I enjoyed reading Cole's story. It was a love story with a twist. It takes you on a journey with several characters. It's about overcoming fears and acceptance. It's difficult to accept life's surprises. Great read with a full story.
  • Great story!

    I don't know what it is about mafia books, but I can't seem to get enough of them. This one was pretty good, it certainly entertained me. There were some twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I love stuff like that. It makes the story not only interesting, but keeps it moving and I wasn't bored. I didn't read the Carter Reed series so I must make sure I rectify that soon. He was in it, but I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything major.
  • Yes!!

    It took a long time for this book to get going. Overall, I think the story was good, and I loved the characters, especially Cole. This one was not as good as Carter Reed.
  • Another amazing book by the amazing Tijan!!

    OMG! Another superfantabulously amazing book from Tijan!! Seriously, could Cole be any more wonderful?!?! The head of a mafia family with a heart of gold! I loved Carter Reed, but Cole is so vicious and lethal, but still so dang lovable! He's definitely one of my favorite characters from any of Tijan's books! If you haven't read the Carter Reed books, I'd recommend reading them first (They're wonderful too!), as hey give some background into Cole and his life. This book takes place after Carter Reed 2. It follows Cole one he returns to the head of the Morisimo family and to Chicago, and Addison a freelance writer. Addison's husband was killed in a car accident and she's trying to move on with her life. She makes the move to downtown Chicago and sees the most gorgeous man she's ever seen while having dinner with her friend. She wasn't looking for a relationship, but when she finds out Cole works out and has something to do with her building it all spirals from there. There are secrets and betrayals and passion and lies and lots of steamy sex scenes all in a superbly written book. Loved, loved, loved it. Tijan is amazing! Probably my favorite author ever! I seriously cannot put her books down once I start reading them. I read them over and over and they're just as good the second, third, fourth and fifth times! I've never read anything of hers that I didn't love!
  • Great book

    I love love this book. It might be a tad slow in the beginning, but once you get sucked in you can not stop. Highly recommend!
  • Literally obsessed

    I LOVE all of Tijian's books! I've read the Carter Reed books and after reading the review about this book I had to pre order. I'm not gonna lie I was a little skeptical, but as always Tijian pulls through with another great book! I couldn't help my self, I had to finish this book it was so great, so within the first day I was done. If that doesn't tell you how good it is I don't know what will. I encourage any readers to also check out her other book when finished, you won't be able to put them down. A personal favorite of mine are the Falling Crest Series, and newly added Cole! Enjoy!
  • Love Tijan. Loved Cole.

    I read this book in one sitting which is isn't a huge surprise as that's how I typically read all of Tijan's book. I pre-ordered it awhile back and just recently got the notification that it was available so I downloaded it and read it all. Fantastic. My main word to describe this book. I really enjoyed reading this book, it was written well and it was captivating. Would absolutely recommend this book as well as others from this author.
  • Best book.

    I'm in love with Tijans style of writing. It's so captivating. This was a job well done. 10 stars.
