Makenna and Lucio have been in love with each other since they were younger. They had to keep their love a secret because of Lucio’s father who did not believe in mixing races. Lucio fake girlfriend decided that she wanted more in her relationship with Lucio and set her brother on a pregnant Makenna. One night Makenna was brutally raped and left for dead and once Lucio found out who had hurt his love, he exacted judgement swiftly and it landed him in prison for three years. Those three years Lucio was in prison was not good for either him or Makenna and when his time drew near Lucio learned that Makenna was engaged to another man, however that was not the only thing standing in the way of Lucio and Makenna reuniting. Someone is out for revenge not only against Lucio, but his entire family.
This was a really good read, although I have to say it was obvious that Lucio was going to get Makenna back. Richard was such a dillweed. Looking forward to the next book, I hope it can top this one.
