This is a sweet romance between Delilah and Lucio but I wish there was more to their story. Delilah has a really tough life despite coming from a wealthy family so it would be nice to have more background into her family life. Her father’s drinking is the catalyst for everything that happens but we never get any insight into these characters or any glimpse of her life before the story begins. This is insta-love without any build-up but it’s still a nice story with likeable characters. The rest is pretty predictable but it’s not terrible and I did finish it.
This isn’t how fairy tales typically begin, but it’s where mine starts…
No money, no phone, and abandoned on the streets of Chicago.
With my baby in my arms, I wander into a bar in a shady neighborhood and ask to use their phone.
When my father turns us away and completely disowns me, the bar owner, and total hottie, offers us a place to stay…no strings attached.
I’m leery at first.
Hot alpha guy.
Down on her luck single mother.
I mean, who wouldn’t be?
Lucio Gallo isn’t like most men, though. He’s fiercely protective, loyal, and did I mention he’s covered in nothing but muscle?
Above all else, he’s everything I need but never knew I wanted.
