Title: Miles Away
Author: Addison Kline
The mafia couldn’t kill him.
Prison couldn’t break him.
Going home threatens to do both.
Miles Capadonno has made some mistakes. Once part of the Capadonno crime family, he took the fall for another member of the crime family who once tried to kill him. At age 17, they put a contract out on Miles’ head for neglecting to complete a job. It was a matter of priority. Miles went to his dying mother’s side instead of picking up stolen merchandise from the ship yard. When you’re in with the Capadonno’s, whether you’re blood or sworn in, when they say jump you jump, when they say kill you kill. Ignoring an order is an offense of the highest degree. When they couldn’t kill him, they let Miles take the fall for another Capadonno family member. Now 15 years later, Miles is being released. He is ready to put his past behind him. There’s only one problem. There is still a contract on Miles’ head. This time, Miles is man enough to collect on owed debts, and he will not back down from the family that stabbed him in the back.
Leticia “Letty” Alves is a saucy Latina and Miles’ old high school girlfriend. She was only 16 when Miles was arrested, but she hasn’t stopped wondering about the boy who charmed her all those years ago. Now working as a nurse for a home health agency, Letty’s priorities are to take care of herself and her 18 month old son, Gabriel. But when Miles walks back into her life everything changes, and suddenly, the family that she had avoided all her life, is now breathing down her neck looking for Miles. Letty is no damsel in distress, though. She’s a fighter, and she never backs down from a challenge.
Sparks fly when Miles and Letty reunite. Can they put their differences aside to become one again? Can Miles set down his pride and accept the help and love that Letty can provide? Will Letty get over her resentment over being left so long ago when Miles was arrested? Only readers know for sure.
Welcome to Carrion, New Jersey, where the Capadonno’s call the shots. Miles was away for so long, but now the prodigal son has returned. One thing is for sure, the family business isn’t ready for a bastard like him.

This story was full of twists, and captivating. Smart, engaging and inventive, Miles’ story knocked me out.
This one was my first from this author and definitely not my last. It was surprising and challenging at many levels.
This story about a man (Miles Capadonno) who was framed for murder for seventeen years was totally mind-blowing. Mafia runs in the family but not for him. Wanting not to be part of his father’s business, he was planning to live with her high school sweetheart, Letty. One night changed everything, and BAM, it was the beginning of an intriguing, suspenseful and phenomenal story.
It was smartly written with twists and such incredible ability to make you doubt about everything and everyone. When you think you were on lead, be sure that the author knows how to play you until the end.
Addison Kline’s writing was masterful, with a story on a full speed mode and no time out! I won’t talk about more the plot because it would spoil all of it and trust me, you will enjoy the crazy ride!
Don’t Forget the romance either, because this couple (Miles and Letty) are EPIC, with a love that conquers all.
Rough, raw, strong with his persistence to win his woman back and seek revenge. Letty is also a woman that won’t mess up with. She’s independent, sweet and so strong. Their chemistry was off the charts and moved me.
This book is definitely a top read. The story was written also with music as pivotal part of the book. I wanted to emphasize this point of this story. To my mind, it was increasing the intensity of the moment. My heart was racing throughout the story and I could only catch my breath at the end. So well played Addison Kline!Be sure, I am so gonna read the next ones of this series!!!
