After years of being estranged from the only family he has left, Angelo "Angel" LaCroix and his brother have finally put the past behind them. However, there is one more thing Angel has to do to right a terrible wrong done before he can forget and move on.

In the process of doing so, he comes in contact with an acquaintance from his old life, a woman who disrupts his carefully structured world and gives him a glimpse of something he thought he’d never have – but can she accept him for the man he is? He’s made a promise to her to get out of the game…one day.
But that time is not today because for every step he takes to legitimize his operation, something always happens to pull him in deeper.

There are things he’s done that he’s not proud of, but he'll never apologize for taking the necessary steps to keep his family safe. For now, this life is his "norm". Nicole can either choose to accept that reality...or not.

Nicole Randolph knew Angel before he became the powerful and feared man he is now. The fierce crush she harbored as a young girl fast develops into the strong love of a woman. But with that love comes the knowledge of the world he lives in, a world that’s completely foreign to her and goes against everything she was raised to believe...and she refuses to compromise – even if it means losing the only man she’s ever loved.

    Story: GREAT
    Intimacy Level: TOE CURLING GOOD
    Enjoyment: GREAT

    Another great story telling by the author. I think this book has taken things to another level with the author's writing and the story she is conveying. This is book 4 in the (Sin City Heat) series and with each book it gets better and better. I like that this story has a mob with bad boy feel to it. Angelo is sexy as hell with his charisma and take what he wants attitude. Angelo aka Angel is Dom's older brother and he had to grow up rather quickly to get where he is. And now as powerful as he is, it comes with a lot of enemies and constantly having to watch his back. Nicole knew Angel growing up and always had a thing for him, but she doesn't know the ruthless person everyone else saw him as. I love the bad boy sees good girl, wants good girl and then takes what he wants. This leads to an explosive chemistry between Nicole and Angel that gives you chills, excitement and eagerness to see where it takes their relationship as it plays out.

    I like that this book was a little different from the previous books in the series.Other than the bad boy feel to it, the author took us through the different stages of Angels and Nicole's relationship with meeting, reconnecting, marriage, baby and what takes place after, which isn't smooth sailing for the couple. As with all the other books, more secrets are explained and reviled, along with reoccurring characters along with new characters. This book wouldn't be the same without getting more of Marcus, Darrell, Dom and the love of their lives. There is always drama when they get together, but it's always good to see them.

    Again to the author, well done and keep up the good work and there is never a dull moment while reading this series. Can't wait to read more.

    If you've come across this book for the first time, here is the series:

    Buried Secrets (SIN CITY HEAT SERIES Book1)
    Twisted Obsessions (SIN CITY HEAT SERIES Book 2)
    Beginning of an Eclipse (SIN CITY HEAT SERIES PREQUEL)

    Five stars is NOT enough!

    Wow! What a great SEXY book. Five stars as a rating is by no means enough. This was my first book by SK, and I am hooked. (Just like Angel was for Nikki, and vice versa) I found myself cheering for Angel, and then feeling guilty. He is such a BAD BOY; fierce and ruthless, but loyal to no end. With that being said, he made me want a bad boy too! ;)

    My My My....What a book. Out of all the books I have read from

    My My My....What a book. Out of all the books I have read from this very talented author I must say this has to be the best one. What I love most about her books is not only the steamy love scenes but the love that is shared from these very alpha males. Angelo meets up with a childhood friend and knew instantly he had to have her. Once he got her the question came about is to can he keep her. Nikki was nothing like any woman he has ever met and she gave him a challenge. Their relationship went through a lot of ups and downs but through it all you knew the love they had for one another. SK knock this book out the park and I can't wait to read the next installment. So if you are looking for a really great book or series then pick this one. It is great!!!!!! nexnextseries then pick up

    SK does it again, hot, steamy, engaging plot with an alpha male

    SK does it again, hot, steamy, engaging plot with an alpha male you will never forget! Angelo and Nikki are a great couple with real chemistry. Angelo is sexy, powerful, smart, street, private and total alpha. I could not put this book down - its worth every penny. Even the supporting characters are great!
    What I love about SK's books is the FACT that you can start one - anyone of them and you are right in the story = an excellent author. Warning! Dont read this bok out in public!!!! Its TOO HOT!!!
