This is the type of romance I adore. Smart heroine, loyal to her family. Strong hero, battling between what his mind says is right and what his heart tells him. I found Sofia continuing loyalty very believable, especially when their past is revealed. The chemistry sparked between Sofia and Derek from chapter one and continued to build. I loved that build up. They didn't just dismiss their earlier issues, they talked them out and got to know each other better and because of that, I believed in their happily ever after by the end. This book is non-stop action. Guns, gangs, stuff blowing up, a couple on the run through Miami. Very fast paced with little downtime
What I liked about this story was that the hero and heroine were together for the almost the entire book. I like watching how they handle the running from people trying to kill them and near-death experiences all while trying to figure out why they stopped dating in the first place. There are some serious sparks between the two. I also always enjoy stories with family/friends who will step up and help with no questions asked. I did not expect the ending, so that was quite interesting! Elle did a wonderful job with the couple of intimate scenes between Sofia and Derek . They were sensual, full of emotion and really fit the characters. This book was full of suspense, action, family, friendship, romance and love. I highly recommend this book if you like romantic suspense and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
