Being part of rival families
wasn’t enough to stop the passion between Brandon DeLuca and Carly O’Reilly.
They’ve defied the odds and prevailed together as a couple, the first female to
lead her Irish mob family and the Italian enforcer who stands by her side. When
one of her enemies tries to use Carly as a pawn in an attempt to gain power,
Brandon is out for blood
—saving Carly isn’t enough.

Please note: Brandon & Carly’s romance is a three-part story, but
there are no relationship cliffhangers.

What a perfect ending to this couple’s story! I didn’t think I could love Brandon and Carly more than I did at the end of book 2, but I was wrong…so wrong. I don’t know what it is about these two…maybe it’s the love and devotion towards each other in a crazy world of violence. I also admire how the author made them great as a couple yet they are characters that can standalone…they don’t need each other to make the other better, but they do because of their love. I’m not sure if I’m explaining this correctly so I’ll move on…needless to say, I’m a huge fan of them.

In this last book of their story, they have picked up where they left off after Sean did something that I couldn’t believe. All I could think is this guy is crazy! The good thing is that Carly rises even higher and Brandon is there when she needs him. That’s the thing I was referring to earlier, she’s brave and strong enough to lead the Irish mob on her own and he knows this, yet he’ll be there to support and rule with her until the end.

I loved getting to know Brandon’s family even more and his brothers make me laugh. I hope they get a book. Hint hint, Fiona Davenport 🙂

There is so much packed into this one little book: devotion, loyalty, laughter, very HOT sex, and two alphas that love each other beyond all reason. If that sounds good to you, you need to read their story. I  have to say, the passion in this book was the best out of all three. Don’t get me wrong, it was great in all the books, but the love between them made it even hotter.

The ending was probably my favorite…It’s awesome seeing Nic and Brandon as well as Carly interacting with their families. It kind of jars you at first because it’s such a contrast to some of the things they do to protect their families. It’s definitely a dichotomy of light and dark although I think the light definitely wins.

Congratulations to the author on a wonderful story. 5 stars for Passion. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to bring us in the future!


My eyes strayed to the doorway once
again and Ma laughed, prompting me to return my attention to her.
“She’ll be back any minute, Brandon.
She’s not going to run away from you.”
If she only
I wasn’t really worried about her
running. I was confident Carly loved me. But with every passing minute she
didn’t arrive back in the room, my gut tightened, my instincts screaming that
something was wrong.
My head whipped around and my heart
stopped as Thomas yelled my name, racing into the room alone, his face awash
with alarm.
I didn’t give him a chance to get out
another word as I took off for the front doors, yelling orders to my men to
find her. I heard Nic doing the same with his own and was more grateful than
ever for our alliance.
Bursting out into the twilight, my head
swiveled from side to side, taking in everything around me. I heard the screech
of tires and caught a glimpse of a long black limousine barreling around a
corner several blocks away. I felt my chest split open as I lost sight of it,
positive it was carrying my heart away.
Nic called to me as a he raced towards
a parked car. “I’ve got this, you find out what’ s going on. I called Breck,
he’s going to hack the GPS on the limo.” I barely got in a nod of acknowledgment
before he was burning rubber down the street with three more cars following
behind. They would split up and take different routes, hoping to cross paths
with the runaway vehicle.
Nic’s friend Brecken was a security
specialist and had resources we didn’t have access to. He’d been invaluable
when we’d been protecting Anna several weeks before. It gave me a tiny level of
comfort to have him on our side once again.
Thomas was suddenly at my side and I
spun around, fisting my hands in his dress shirt, pulling his face up to mine,
which lifted him a couple of inches off of his feet.
“What the fuck happened?” I ground out,
doing everything I could to tamp down the rising need to pulverize someone.
He shook his head, his eyes filled with
guilt and fear, some of it directed at me, but I could tell it was mostly from
concern for the woman we both loved, albeit in very different ways. “She needed
to use the bathroom and I told Greg to watch out for her while I took a piss.
When I came out they were both gone and Greg’s comm was off.”
“Who the fuck is Greg?” I roared,
shaking Thomas violently.
“He’s one of my men. I’ve known him my
whole life. I didn’t think—”
“No,” I interrupted, “you didn’t
fucking think! I don’t know him. I specifically instructed you not to leave the
safety of my wife with anyone who wasn’t on the list I gave you. Where is he?”
“He’s—he’s gone too,” Thomas stuttered.
I dropped him and delved my fingers
into my hair, pulling the strands in an effort to keep from killing him.
“Sean won’t hurt her,” he insisted. “He’s
after power and the easiest way to gain it is by marryin’ Carly.”
“She’s already fucking married!” I
“There are ways around that.”
“Over my dead body,” I growled.
“Yeah, that’s one of the ways. The
other would be an annulment.”

My name is Fiona Davenport and I’m a smutoholic. I’ve been reading raunchy
romance novels since… well, forever and a day ago it seems. And now I get to
write sexy stories and share them with others who are like me and enjoy their
books on the steamier side. Fiona Davenport is my super-secret alias, which is
kind of awesome since I’ve always wanted one.
