He’s Pink, the personal enforcer for the boss of the New York mafia. She’s Gigi Rey, a supermodel known across the globe.
They live two entirely different lives but before the mob and the fame, they were Lev Arsov and Gigi Parker. Two people struggling to make it—who met by chance—before life got in the way.
Five years have passed since the nights they shared together, but Fashion Week brings Gigi back to New York and straight into Lev’s path once more, when her work obligations tangles with the mafia’s business. In this world, that’s never a good thing.
They aren’t the same people now. He’s a single dad doing whatever he can for his daughter. Gigi can’t walk down the street without the world watching. A lot has changed. The one thing that didn’t? How they keep finding their way into each other’s heads … and beds.
If only it was that simple.
If only the tabloids didn’t back them into a wall.
If only they saw it coming.
If only they could go back to the time before he was … Pink.

** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. **
I’ve been intrigued by Pink (Lev) since I’ve met him when I read Andino and Haven’s story.
I was glad to read his full story. From the man he was before and then when he became Andino’s enforcer.
Pink has come from a long way. Struggling and becoming a father suddenly, meeting Andino secured his future but being on the other side of the law.
But before Pink, he met the woman that would steal his heart. As you might guess it wasn’t their time back then, between two people who had so many aspirations for a better future.
I got it, they weren’t both in the right place and when they crossed paths again a few years later, the fire between them didn’t cease, scorching hot but leading them to some dangerous exposure.
They had a great chemistry for sure and I understood that they connected to a physical level and beyond but I felt there were too many sexual moments to me. I’d wish to see them developing their relationship a bit more before getting into intercourse.
I appreciated the moments between Lev, his daughter and Gigi. Genuine et sweet.
This book was a bit darker and somehow depicted a frightening reality. The main characters were going to overcome some hardships before their HEA. Somehow I’d have seen more development again on that part. To see more how they fought to get a better future against all odds. Bethany-Kris wrote about some heavy stuff through Lev and Gigi’s journey.
But at the end, they won and made their own story, as survivors and fighters. To never give up.
