Blurb
She fled from the depths of hell, her life barely in tact.
Iris is finally living a peaceful life away from all that she fears. She’s ready to come out of hiding and start living again.
He walked away from a life no one is supposed to escape.
Callan’s been looking over his shoulder for the past two years. There’s a reason they say the mafia is for life. Now, in a new city, and as the guardian of his sister, he has the chance to create a life he can be proud of.
Iris’s world is rocked off its axis when she meets her new neighbor with turquoise eyes and a protective streak a mile wide. Soon the chemistry between them sparks to life and it’s not long before passion consumes them. But their pasts are never too far away…
When those he loves the most are threatened, will the cost of his sacrifice be his own life?

 

My review:

Iris has escaped an abusive marriage and after two years with no contact from her ex she has moved back to Texas. She is next door to Callan and his sister, whom he has custody of, and they share a mutual friend in their neighbor Carmen, who takes each of them under her wing. At first they clash, but then a relationship develops between them and it’s beautiful. Iris is a great companion to Callan’s sister. Callan is patient with Iris, letting her move things forward between them on her terms as she’s comfortable. She blends seamlessly into his friends group as well.

I do wish we had more of Callan’s backstory. I was able to piece together a little of it but we never are really told much about his past. We definitely know more about Iris’s history.

Overall this was a really good book. There was a bit of suspense that kept things interesting and the characters on their toes. But not so much that it became over the top.
