Format: Digitial and Print

Synopsis:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert continues her smoking-hot series about the O'Malleys-wealthy, powerful, and full of scandalous family secrets.

Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the "values" Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O'Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name . . . yet she still can't stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian's own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast-and how hard-she's falling for him.

Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at "hello," even if she's more inclined to say good-bye to an O'Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn't, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying-and dying-for . . .

Review:

This book contains adult themes.

This is the third book in the O’Malley series by Katee Robert and follows Cillian the third oldest brother of the O’Malley family as he is trying to get his life together.

Cillian has the bad boy reputation of the family since his younger wild days.  Cillian is working on getting his life together, but struggling with the death of his youngest brother Devlin that is a major focus of the series.  Cillian ends up meeting a woman he becomes infatuated with named Olivia who is a bartender at a bar in the O’Malley territory.   Cillian has always been the screw up so now he needs to convenience everyone he has grown up because he is infatuated with Olivia.   Cillian’s POV of his family and the feelings that go along with that help to keep the story moving along and the reader wanting more.

Olivia has a darker past then she lets on.  She is trying to stay out of trouble and away from everyone while raising her child, but her past is still lurking around the corner.  Olivia is a member of the Romanov family from NY and her brother wants more out of her.  Olivia is a very complex character that the author does a great job creating.  I love that we get to see Olivia’s POV during the story because helps to give us a backstory as well get her current feelings.  Olivia’s main goal is keeping her child safe and in turn she is always keeping her guard up.

The romance that develops between Cillian and Olivia is a slow burning one.  Olivia is so guarded she doesn’t want to let Cillian in, but realizes that maybe he isn’t the bad guy.   They take their time to get to know one another and learn about each other.  Cillian grows into a new character during this book and realizes exactly what he wants in life and how he needs to achieve that.

The drama that we get in this story isn’t fully focused on the O’Malley versus everyone idea, but more on the danger specifically Olivia is in.  I enjoyed learning more about the Romanov group in this book and seeing what the Romanov’s want.  The drama comes quick towards the middle of the book and carries throughout the rest of the book.  I love the slower build up to a relationship prior to the drama hitting so that as a reader I could fall in love with the characters.  


I would suggest this as a weekend read.  I enjoy reading the O’Malley series and find it challenging to put this book down.  The story is fast paced in nature and an interesting read.  Towards the middle half the action picks up and it became challenging to put down as I wanted to know what was going to happen. 

My Rating: 4/5

About Katee Robert
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it 'a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension."  When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
