Deceptions and Desires by Melinda Di Lorenzo

Well, if I'm going to die, at least it's under a man who looks like that. And feels like this.

Funny the things that leap to mind when your apartment has just exploded in front of you. Jane Greene wasn't always her name. But she left the original behind the night she finally killed her vicious mobbed-up husband and then bolted.

Eight years lying low. Now the only thing standing—lying, really—between her and a crew of vengeful Abruzzi family goons is a man. He says his name is Leo. He wants to save her even more than he just plain wants her. Adrenaline and lust are powerful allies. So they run, together.

But more potent than the sheen of sweat between Jane and Leo is a secret. A past that one remembers with grief and regret, and that the other can't begin to guess. Both know that the Abruzzis cannot be stopped. That a tryst is not trust. And that no one will escape unscathed.

This is a story about a woman on the run from the mafia and a man she meets that helps her stay safe. Both of them are hiding secrets which are revealed throughout the novel. They fall in love, and there is lots of danger and gripping plot twists, along with some really steamy sex scenes. I couldn't put the book down. The two main characters had amazing chemistry and I began to care about them a lot. I also liked how the main female character wasn't weak, she could be vulnerable, but she wasn't a damsel in distress. Since this book is Noir, the main characters are not exactly wearing white hats, and I liked that. They are complicated individuals that live in a morally grey world. If you are a fan of sexy, romantic suspense, which has a dark side, then I highly recommend this book to you! like sexy romantic suspense stories, I recommend this book to you.
