A Love of Vengeance (Wanted Men, #1)
By Nancy Haviland
Once the most feared member of an Italian Mafia crime family, Gabriel Moretti returns to New York at the request of his mentor, Russian crime boss Vasily Tarasov. Vasily needs someone he can trust in Seattle to protect his estranged daughter, Eva Jacobs, while he avenges the murder of the young woman’s mother. Gabriel is unstoppable in a fight, whether he’s using fists, blades, or bullets; but innocent, onyx-haired Eva may just be the most dangerous—and beautiful—thing he’s come up against.
Intense sparks fly between the two, tempting Gabriel to mix business with pleasure while in the Emerald City. But once word gets around that Gabriel has shown up in New York, Stefano—his vengeful brother and the de facto head of the family—decides that Eva is the key to ending the feud between them…permanently.
In this pulse-pounding romantic thriller set against the backdrop of New York City’s storied underworld, loyalties will be tested, secrets will be told, and mob justice will be served.
I just can't do it...I can't just listen to a book. I get so wrapped up in it I have to see what is going to happen and break down and read it. It was kinda humorous at times to have the male narrator try to do a woman's voice. Lots of chuckles!
I really liked this book. It had the right combination of action, love, and plot twists. Gabe was a hot Italian guy! I liked him. I didn't have to hate him and then learn to love him. He has the right mixture of arrogance yet nice at the same time. Eva was ok, she got better as time went on. The supporting players were interesting and hot! Great read!
