They met under summer showers …
Vera Markovic only wanted a vacation away from New York where everyone knows her as a Russian Mafiya printsessa of the Markovic Bratva. She didn’t expect to find something worth remembering. And definitely not a man like Alfie Shelby.
They fell in love when the leaves changed colors …
As New York City’s notorious fixer, Alfie Shelby always gets what he wants—and when he sets his eyes on Vera, he’ll do anything to keep her … even if she’s not sure she wants to be kept.
And they nearly lost it all when the snow started to fall …
She wants nothing to do with a gangster.
A life of crime is all he knows.
But neither can deny what they have, even when forces beyond their control try to keep them apart.
💭 MY THOUGHTS 💭
Acquainted…. Easy-to-read, Charismatic
The story of the fixer Alfie and the mafiya printsessa Vera. Alfie is the fixer of all fixer’s if you want anything and I mean anything he is the man to see. Alfie build his life from nothing, from a lowly kid in London to become the man that he is today. It wasn’t an easy road to get to where he is now and he has learnt his lessons along the way. Through those lessons he has grown.
Alfie is special. He doesn’t love hard but when he see something he truly wants, he goes after it without any care in the world. He is charismatic, sexy, and engaging.
The storyline between Vera and Alfie was very captivating which made the book easy-to-read.
There is a lot of intensity surrounding the infamous Lachlan. Lachlan has is own demons and is volatile in every way, but I was intrigued by him and know there is a good deeper story about him.
Lachlan is in the same world and mind frame that he has always been in. Will he evolve as Alfie has or will he stay the same? Sometimes as we grow, has individuals we have to leave friends behind that refuse to grow, staying stagnant isn’t the way of life.
Vera doesn’t take crap from anyone, although she is a mafiya printsessa she doesn’t let that define who she was.
London did a great job adding intrigue to the story at the right places. It’s not really a mafia crime story, it’s centered around the romance and relationship of Vera and Alfie. That was a nice change of pace.
Overall for me it was an ok read. My favorite line of the book was, (Oh… I can’t say, it would be a spoiler)…
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
