Fearless and determined, Quinn is the perfect man for the job the Moretti mob has in mind: track down missing mafia princess, Alexis Moretti, and bring her home.

What starts out as a simple task to repay an old debt turns into so much more than he bargained for... And so does she.

As Quinn and Lexi grow close, she becomes more than just his mission. But Lexi and Quinn are both keeping secrets--secrets that could destroy their blossoming romance just as quickly as it ignited. When Lexi's past catches up with them, secrets and lies will be revealed, and the ultimate test of forgiveness will be upon them both.

The moment I read the summary for this book, I was excited to read it. I love romances where someone gets close to someone for bad reasons and they end up falling for each other. This one looked like it would promise some serious heat, too, and I couldn't wait to read it!

When Quinn gets a phone call from a mob boss asking for him to cash in on an owed favor, Quinn doesn't want to get involved. But he's the perfect man for the job of finding a runaway mafia daughter wanted for murder. When Quinn finds her, though, she's far from the mob princess he was expecting. Lexi is running from a horrible situation with some horrible men, so when she meets Quinn, she is surprised by how sweet and protective he is. As they spend more time on the Appalachian trails together, the more they start to fall for each other. But can Quinn keep her safe and keep her trust when she finds out who he really is? 

This book had so much promise. It started out pretty good and I loved how moved Quinn was when he finally found Quinn and got to know her. They didn't want to like each other because of their real identities and pasts, but they just couldn't help it. I loved how Quinn was trying to go slow with her because he knew that she was different than all of the other women that flew in and out of his life. 

The problem I had with this book, though, was how slow it ended up being. Yes, it was sweet how Quinn didn't want to go too fast, but I found myself skimming sections and becoming bored with the story by the end. It was obvious where the ending was heading and I just wanted even more of a connection between Quinn and Lexi than we got. 

Overall, this one had promise and started off pretty good, but the middle and end were lacking for me. I wanted more development from the main character and a less predictable ending.
