Protecting What's Mine
SERIES: What's Mine Duet • Book 1 of 2
TROPES: Suspense, opposites attract, mafia, slight age gap, new adult
There’s nothing wrong with a harmless little crush, right?
And who better to crush on than the gorgeous man next door. The one who would never look twice in my direction.
Except he does.
The first time he pins me in place with his dark gaze, I’m rendered speechless. The first time he lays his hands on me, I melt. And the first time he takes me, well…I fall to pieces, wondering if I’ll ever be the same again.
Everything about him screams danger.
And yet I’d be lying through my teeth if I didn’t admit that was part of the attraction.
A moth dancing too close to the flickering flame, hoping I don’t get torched.

SERIES: What's Mine Duet • Book 2 of 2
TROPES: Suspense, opposites attract, mafia, off-limits
The moment I saw her, I knew that she had the power to destroy everything I'd spent years trying to accomplish. And I can't allow that to happen.
I’ve made it a point to steer clear of the men who work for my father. I have no intention of getting tangled up in that lifestyle. But there’s something about Roman, an irrepressible energy that snaps and sizzles between us. The weight of his stare makes the nerve endings under my skin prickle with awareness. From the moment we met, his dislike was palpable. And nothing has changed in the three years I’ve known him. If I were smart, I’d stay away. But I’m not smart. I’ve proven that time and time again where this man is concerned.
Most days, I’m barely civil to her, because I know all hell will break loose once the floodgates open. When Sofia should be the last thing I’m thinking about, she’ll relentlessly push her way inside my head. Nothing I’ve found douses the combustible energy that flares to life between us. It’s as frustrating as it is dangerous. I’m like a moth dancing too close to the flickering flames. One of these days I’m going to get burned. Or end up with a bullet in my head.
