Overview

Italian heartthrob Nicola Agosto was Memphis' most eligible bad boy seven years ago, but after falling in love with local college beauty queen, Ivy Winters, he settled down and started a beautiful family.

Now as a father of four and a loving husband, he has ascended up the ranks of the Memphis Police Department and positioned himself as a dependable and trustworthy top cop. However, he is known for protecting his officers and not taking anything off criminals, a trait that will not bode well for him in the near future.

When four children are found raped and murdered, Nicola is the first person assigned to the high profile case, tapped personally by the brass. Partnered with a new age bad boy, Luke Johnson, and determined to solve the case, he stumbles on a conspiracy so big until the men responsible have no choice but to set him up and get him out of the picture.

Caught on camera beating a black suspect who threatens his family with the same fate as the four dead children, Nicola goes from Memphis' most beloved police officer to public enemy number one. He's accused of being a racist and charged with abusing his power. Put on suspension pending an investigation, he is faced with losing the only job that he's ever known as well as his freedom.

Realizing that even without a badge, Nicola could be a problem, The Three Wise Men, the conspirers behind the elaborate plot, now want more than Nicola's badge; they also want his life. With nowhere to turn and bound by promises he refuses to break, Nicola turns to his sworn enemy, Russian crime boss Dmitry Medlov. And it's just time to save him and his family from being brutally murdered. A favor for a favor grants Nicola the man and firepower he needs finally solve the case, but it also forces him to go against everything that he's ever stood for.

Read interracial romance author Latrivia Nelson's latest bestselling crime novel about one man's journey through grit, grime, pain and sacrifice to protect the only people he will ever love in Ivy's Twisted Vine's sequel, The World in Reverse.

FINALLY...... All of our favorite characters are back: Ivy, Nicola, Dmitry, Anatoly, Gabriel, Cory and we've been introduced to some new ones, mainly Luke... This story was more about doing what you believe is right more than good vs. evil! And there were definitely some evil things happening! It grabbed you in from the very beginning and had you rooting for Nicola the entire time. I'm going to be honest and say that what Nicola ending up doing because he believed it was right and he had no other choice SHOCKED ME! After rooting so much for Nico and Ivy in Ivy's Twisted Vine, it was refreshing to know they were still sticking it out and fighting everyday to keep their love strong. Although the book was over 700 pages, it didn't feel like it and when it ended it left you wanted more. Let's just say, I am again excited that the Agosto/Medlov story will continue and I hope that we won't have to wait too long for that one! GREAT BOOK!

I normally don't leave a review, but I had to do it after reading this wonder. Wow!! It was so good!! I was shocked that Latrivia Nelson was able to keep true to the characters and still give a romantic, laugh out loud and dramatic story. She is one talented writer. Keep up the good work!! Oh, and to Latrivia Nelson if you do read this, I would really appreciate it if you can write faster. I don't want to wait to read your new creations.

This was by far the best book I have ever read. If looking for action, suspense, romance and anything else this book has it all. I felt like i was in a movie. Please continue with this series and please do a book signing here in your hometown of Memphis. I will read anything you write. The Medlov Diva:)!

I love this guy Nicola. He is my dream man. This was an outstanding sequel to Ivy's Twisted Vine. I loved the action, mystery, romance, and the concept of taking care of family. I can hardly wait to see what Nicola, Dimitry, and Luke Johnson get into next. Well written with plots and twists. I'm glad that my favorites Nicola & Ivy had a favorable ending.

I really enjoyed this book and I love all of Ms. Nelson's books.  I definitely recommend.  Agosto doesn't disappoint and will protect his family no matter what.  Great read,

A page turning mafia saga continues. I love the way all of the characters are intermingled and how Dmitry controls them all. Agosto seeks his help to find the child murderers in his town and becomes indebted to Dmitry. Read the installments.

I loved this book. Ivy and Nicola's love story was great in Ivy's Twisted Vine but what I love in this book is the growth of first love and a strong sexual attraction to a realization of true and lasting love. I think Latrivia Nelson is fantastic in making you believe in love yet she adds reality into a relationship to deepen it. The couple's kids and the danger they face are the reality but Nicola and Ivy's unwavering faith and love in each other is phenomenal. It is great to see how Nicola has matured and I loved the return of familiar and beloved characters. I felt like I was right there with the characters in their treacherous situation and could not put the book down. I got the book yesterday evening and I turned the TV off and read the night away. I was just upset my books had not gotten to me for the long weekend as I had plans to read myself into a coma instead I stayed up late reading this to the end and starting another of Latrivia's books before I realized I had work today and needed to be able to function. So good-and well worth buying the paperback so I can re-read it over and over again!

Love this series 415 pages of action romance & retribution but the editing is horrible...that's why I didn't give 5 stars
EvetteA More than 1 year ago
This was a great read. The storyline was fantastic and action packed. I love that all of the characters were included and true to form.  Ms. Nelson can certainly weave a story and her characters truly come to life. Unfortuntately, similiar to her other books the editing was not up to par. The book is riddled with typos, misspelled and misused words, poor sentence structure and punctuation. In addition, to the overuse of certain phrases: sucked his teeth, smacked his lips, turned up his lip and hands on hips. I greatly enjoyed the book but am quite frankly all the typos are annoying.
