Six Guns (Volume #1)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance
Circumstance tends to bend our lives, sometimes in a direction of discomfort. Nicky Cain thought the favor he owed was a one time thing. Even a gun feels foreign in his hand. But now he’s been offered a new sports car, a beautiful home and a name for himself in the City of Haven. Having being raised with nothing, Nicky finds himself in the midst of temptations hard to turn down. All he has to do is toughen up his conscience and not question what he’s been told to do. He’s getting in too deep, and the circumstances keep presenting themselves including a beautiful woman who captivates his heart. Haven is sucking him in and becoming too much like a home. Nicky Cain has to face the fact that sometimes you don’t choose the mob life, the life chooses you.
My Review: 4/5 Stars
Six Guns grabbed you in from the first page. You get both Nicky and Lilah’s story.
You will read about Nicky’s life as he turns to organized crime though that is the last thing he wants, but he does step up to the plate when he needs too.
Also about the struggle Lilah went through during her marriage and OMG that would not have been me. Lilah was a G with it when she finally told herself enough is enough. The things her husband put her through.
I liked the back story for both characters, you can feel how strong they are and need to be and when the twist for Nicky came I was thinking out loud I knew it. The part I wasn’t really feeling was not how they meet, but how their relationship followed. It felt to quick to me. And there was no cussing. Some situation just deserved a good f word.
I hope they next story is about Nicky’s rise to the top with Lilah at his side. And hopefully some other questions will be answered.
