When Samson opens Club Wicked in Vegas, he leaves behind his New York mob ties and the ghosts that haunt his dreams, but he never expects to see his past love celebrating her bachelorette. An old flame is rekindled, and all their steamy, uninhibited passion comes flooding back, making their attraction undeniable. When Lisbeth breaks off the engagement her financially powerful and vindictive fiancé terrorizes Lisbeth then threatens to close down Club Wicked and reveal Samson’s past. Lisbeth is everything Samson wants and needs and he refuses to lose her again. He vows to protect her, but if his destructive secrets are revealed, they can undermine their lives with deadly results. Despite Samson’s dangerous past, Lisbeth is willing to fight for what she wants especially since she can’t resist falling back into bed with the sexy bad boy, or the addictive pull of their love. Will Samson deny his love to keep Lisbeth safe or will he be forced to seek out the mob’s help—the very people he longed to escape?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book from the authors PR firm for an honest review.
I was super excited when I saw this was a spin off from an MC series. I am always looking for an MC series so now I want to jump back and read that entire catalog especially after meeting the characters in this series. (Serpents MC Las Vegas if you are looking for one too. But I also have my eye on Boa…just saying.)
I am also a HUGE lover of 2nd chance which this book has from jump. Samson and Lisbeth are a bomb of chemistry from the first time we see them together …at her bachelorette party no less. They are both transported in time to when he broke her heart. She has no clue why and he keeps that secret close to the chest until toward the end of the story but que the AWWWW When I read it. Yes, Samson is a swoon worthy Alpha Male who will beat the crap outta a dude, wash off the blood his hands, and then attack your lips in his office 5 minutes later. But that is why we love them. AmIRight???
Samson and Lisbeth have A LOT to get through. History, miscommunication, oh and that pesky douche bag fiancée. That is kinda a big one for Lisbeth. They also have to deal with people trying to destroy all that Samson and his partner Nick have built.
I am loving the series and the characters in it. Jax has me looking at him saying HEEY you. He might be broken on the outside with is scary scars buuuut those are the yummiest of men IMO. Nick. I don’t know about him. His heart is so broken. It is going to take a special lady to open him up. Perhaps Willow???? I mean her free spirit could be that woman. But not Daria please and thanks. #SayNoToSkanks
I am waiting for book 2 and cant wait to see who is the next alpha to fall.
