Review for His to Love by Stacey Lynn - 5 out of 5!
Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one of her father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.
Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.
MY REVIEW -
I love second chance at love stories, and this one was definitely a great one! Tyson is in the FBI, and he is tasked with taking down a crime boss, who murdered his police officer father, but in order to do it he needs to lie to the crime boss' daughter, Gabriella. There's a problem though, Tyson and Gabriella were very much in love when they were in high school before Gabriella left without a word, so Tyson isn't very happy about this assignment, but he would love to know where Gabriella has been for the last 10 years. Gabriella "Blue" Galecki is returning back to her hometown to be there for her mother, who is dying of cancer. Blue has been living on a farm with her aunt for the last 10 years without any contact with her crime boss father. Blue runs into Tyson, an old boyfriend that she has never forgotten, and instantly the attraction between the 2 is obvious. Blue had a reason for leaving without a word, so she isn't exactly welcoming to Tyson, but that won't keep Tyson away from Blue. Blue and Tyson are so sweet together, and they definitely have some heat! I loved the chemistry between them, and the sex scenes were well written and really great. Their romance was heartfelt and deep. Blue and Tyson were both strong characters, and I like how honest they were with each other about how they felt about the other. I do wish Blue had stood up to her family a bit more, but I understand she is in a tough situation. I knew how a lot of this book was going to play out, but I still really enjoyed the whole thing, and I liked the writing style. I will definitely read the next book in this series, and check out other books by Stacey Lynn! There are some great side characters with what could be some interesting stories!
