The life Phoenix De Lange has gone through is so ugly that it is no wonder he is so screwed up when it comes to matters of the heart. The poor man had me wanting to comfort him and let him see that there is more to him than what he has already lived and experienced.
Bee Cappo is the girl that Phoenix is hired to watch over her while she attends school. As they grow close the need to be around her increases but steps back when he remembers his pass. Afraid to hurt anyone else again especially the girl he feels a connection to.
If I was completely honest, she terrified me. I’d been numb for so long that even her touch was like getting burned. My entire body flared to life, and then I was suddenly reminded of what happened when I was with a woman.
Bee is no angel herself. She is pushing Phoenix in ways that make him uncomfortable and just wants to be the one for him but will the truth of his history change her mind and ultimately push him away?
I had the pleasure of meeting this author at a signing event but this is the first book and series that I have read from her and it entailed a setting where I am new to the Mafia family and its world. The 4 stars read had many twisted and sick situations that shocked me which in turn surprisingly got me hooked on the story of Phoenix and Bee. Their story was one not to take lightly and it had moments where I was cringing in hopes for a positive outcome. A great start for me into the Eagle Elite series.
