BLURB: Sergei Andronikov was a child when the Mafia wiped out his family, leaving him with nothing but a hunger for revenge. Years later, through ruthless strategy and tireless patience, he’s a contract killer working for the three families ruling Cape Swan… and he’s nearly in position to bring them all down from the inside.
Domenico “Dom” Maisano is Mafia royalty, a made man… and a hitman. He’s caught up in a violent life he can’t escape, struggling to maintain an image he doesn’t want, and suppressing desires he can’t have.
A chance encounter throws the killers into each other’s paths. Though Dom knows he’s playing a dangerous game, he’s intrigued and keeps coming back. Sergei can’t resist him either—Dom is everything he set out to destroy, but he’s also everything he’s ever ached for in a man.
Then Sergei gets the contract he’s been waiting for—the hit that promises to bring the town’s Mafia to its knees.
But when a boss makes an unexpected move, Sergei must choose between dropping the hammer on the families he vowed to annihilate, and protecting the man he swore he wouldn’t love.
And the wrong choice—or even the right one—will destroy them both.
I’m a big LA Witt fan and never thought I could like her even more, but it happened. If The Seas Catch Fire is one of the best books I have read this year. Before you start reading, please make sure you don’t have anything important to do, because once you start, you won’t be able to put it down. I couldn’t and let me tell you my family wasn’t so happy with me…
Being a serious fan of the Godfather series, I’m one of millions who enjoy reading stories about the Mafia, having “bad guys” as main characters. There’s something thrilling to root for someone who clearly has a life that shows nothing is black&white, nobody is only good or bad.
This story is set in Cape Swan, a small town, led by three Mafia families. Our MCs are both very strong characters trapped in a life determined by their horrible pasts. Sergei is a contract killer working as a stripper as a cover, doing his best to achieve his plan of destroying the families. Dom Maisano is a Mafia royalty, and a hitman himself. Their unforgettable love story is woven in the world of ruthless killers, unimaginably painful memories, intrigue, betrayal, and a seemingly hopeless future.
The story is fast paced, the writing is very powerful, and the tension is masterfully built from page to page, escalating up until the very last chapter keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. The relationship between Dom and Sergei is changing and growing from scene to scene, full of heart, hot sex and humor at the most unexpected places. This book has the hottest, most sensual lap dance scene I have ever read. The chemistry is sizzling hot from the beginning, but my favorite part is the way their emotions are coming alive, the way they unexpectedly fall in love with each other.
I truly loved everything about this book. All the tiny details create a story that breaks your heart at times, makes you snicker, makes you cry, makes you hot, and most of all makes you see the world through the eyes of two amazing men the way you haven’t seen it before!
