4.5 My Kind of Book Stars
WOW! I LOVED THIS! I'm sooo happy I ran into this book because it has everything I like.
Olivia Luise is a broken, strong woman. Her mother was the mistress of a Mafia boss that took them both to live with him and she faced loneliness and indifference until she finds solace and comfort in Alex, the Mafia's heir. He shoud hate her because of what her mother means to his family but he can't because he sees purity in Olivia and he's drawn to her. Of course, love flows but it's not that easy. Promises were broken and time drifted them apart but after they found eachother again, they face their deepest feelings.
I was in awe of Olivia's strengh, she's a true survivor and I know she can get through anything. She's also a sweet girl who just wants to know what love is and I ached for her.
Alex is torn between his duties and his feelings, but I felt like he truly loved Olivia and he will find a way for all this to turn out right.
The end left me hanging. I'm a sucker for unfinished love, GOD! I need the next book like, yesterday. I'm rooting for these two and I'm looking forward to their next step (this isn't the end right?).
The writing was sublime. I felt everything, despair, fear, love, heartache. And the transition between the POVs and the past and present narrations were well done, it gave answers but also left a bit of intrigue in order to keep me hooked. Like I said, my kind of book!
