Publisher's Summary

Collins Attwood

My parents are dead.

My brother, Lucas, has been shot.

Our world has crumbled down around us, and we have nowhere to go.

For the last year, my brother and I have been on the run hiding from whoever killed our parents. The details are spotty, but Lucas thinks our father stole money from the mob and the day our parents were killed is the same day they came to collect. 

I don't want to believe him, but I don't have a choice. We're running out of time and money. If I don't find us a place to lie low for longer than a month or two, we're as good as dead, too. Or we would be if I hadn't stumbled upon a want ad: TUTOR NEEDED.

I didn't do too bad in college. How hard could it be?

Miceli Daidone

Being the head of the Daidone Family comes with its inherent risks and there are certain aspects of my life I won't chance. 

Ever again.

My daughter, Rocca, is the spitting image of her mother. Every day I am reminded of how, in a single instant, I failed my family.

When Collins Attwood enters my life, I know she's carrying a burden someone so young shouldn't be. I also know her real identity. There's a bounty on her and her brother's head.

Why? The syndicate of families won't say—which is troubling.

Asking Collins is a non-starter as well.

Each day she's in my home, the attraction between us grows harder to ignore. The need to protect her overrules my rationale, making me vulnerable. In order to defend her, I have to earn her trust. Unfortunately, faith doesn't come easy for someone like me. 

For all I know, this could be a trap. 

I've been given a second chance at love, but in order to open my heart again, I have to know the truth.

They say love is blind. 

I suspect it might also be stupid.

AN ENJOYABLE & NICELY WEAVED AGE-GAP ROLLERCOASTER

When Collins was ten she used to watch handsome dashing Miceli and his beautiful wife at gatherings and, even then, envied what they had.. fast forward eleven years and life has not been kind to Collins or to the Head of the Daidone Family Miceli. He was an Assassin back in the day for the Syndicate of Families but his wife was targeted and killed leaving him feeling guilty. Collins and her brother Lucas are on the run, they’re constantly looking over their shoulders since their parent’s brutal murders and the lies and intrigue have blackened their father’s name. They’ve got targets on their backs too but, after a year of constantly moving about, time and money are fast running out. So Collins grasps at straws and lies and deceives to get the Tutor job Miceli advertised for his twelve year old daughter.. which comes with live-in guest house accommodation. All starts well.. but sizzling chemistry heats things up.. then suspicion and searches for truths.. and secrets are slow to be revealed. But somewhere protective and jealous feelings kick in.. and puzzle pieces and clues are put together to find the answers to Miceli’s wife and Collins parent’s murders. And, along their journey, there’s drama, suspense, danger, sex, beautiful highs and emotional lows and a wonderful happy ever after ending for the pair.

Worth a credit? Yes, it’s a well-written, very enjoyable, age-gap romance (nineteen years) and a slow-burn as they both try to resist the other in a dance of attraction, deception, drama, intrigue, trust, lust, steam, family, romance and love. With strong dual POV narration by Kira and Mason making this a very addictive and enjoyable listen.
