Alessandro is the unwilling heir of a Chicago crime family. Intent on leaving the life set out for him, he decides to run as fast and as far away as possible. His plans crumble when one girl crash lands in his life. He should hate the daughter of his father’s mistress, but it’s near impossible when he finds that they are alike in more ways than one.
Olivia grew up watching men walk in and out of her mother’s life. When one man finally decides to stay, she learns that crime lords don’t leave until someone’s dead. Olivia’s salvation comes from the person she least expects: his son.
Six years later, Olivia and Alessandro are reunited when her life is threatened. If time has proven one thing, it’s that repeating their parents’ mistakes seems inevitable.
In a world where friendship is a luxury and love a death sentence, two unlikely lovers find each other only to be separated by their cruel reality.

I am going to start by telling you to DROP what you are doing and pick up this book! For a debut novel I was blown away and I’m going to mandate that everyone reads it ASAP ;) I was NOT disappointed in this book at all!
Set in Chicago we follow the story of Alessandro aka Alex and Olivia aka Livi/Lulu. Their pasts were thrown together, torn apart, and now they are back in each other’s lives.
“I should’ve know the past would catch up to me – he would always catch up with me.”
This story will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are “bad guys” and hot sex, there are good girls and straight up bitches, there is shady business and good friends. The most prominent aspect for me was the love and hatred that Alex and Lulu share for each other….it made this story so much more intense.
“What do you sat to the woman that haunts your dreams and stars in your worst nightmares?”
“I wanted to slap him or kiss him senseless. He made me angry and turned me on all in the same breath.”
I felt like I was in the same room with them so many times…like a fly on the wall taking it all in. I couldn’t get enough, I was consumed by them. The way that GK Moore brings us to the past and back to the present was done seamlessly. I was worried that it would be confusing but she only enhanced the story more the way she worked it altogether. I felt what they were feeling, loved when they loved, and fell apart when it all unraveled. I am left wanting more and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
“I was in love with him. It was a broken, reckless, stupid love, but it was also an all consuming, soul-scorching, passionate love.”
“One kiss was all we’d ever had and it was a stolen, clumsy kiss that rook me by surprise. It lasted barely a second, but it was my reason for breathing and made me desire her even more.”
