"Masters only did two seascapes before his hand was crushed."

David and Emma Thomas have reached the end of the road. Only one thing is preventing them from parting ways: a painting they bought on honeymoon. Priceless to both of them, the only solution seems to be to find the second of the elusive Masters' seascapes and each carry away a piece of the past.

Will an impromptu road trip set them free once and for all?

4 Stars

Emma and David are in the process of getting a divorce that neither one of them are really fond of. There are things in their past that hold them back from moving forward in their relationship and they have not been able to overcome them for several years. The only thing that the two of them cannot agree on in the divorce is a picture that they bought together and it has significant meaning behind it. They both love it and don't really know how much it is worth because of its rarity. Emma and David hear about an auction that is going to have the match to the picture that they own and decide to take a road trip to see about purchasing it.

While on the road trip, Emma and David learn about some debts that Emma's stepbrother owes people and found out that they are coming for him. This wouldn't be a problem except that Gerard lives with Emma now. David id scared that Emma might get hurt in the cross fire of the ones Gerard owes money trying to make him pay. David has his brother Joe check on things while they are gone and they decide on a way to get the debts paid. This backfires on them because Gerard disappears. Emma and David end up becoming pretty close again having to deal with issues that are out of their control.

I love how this story has a HEA and proves that everything doesn't always have to end in a bad way. This story is a quick read that I could not put down once I started reading it. It was such easy reading and a great story!


They had talked about David staying in the house - spare room, of course - until he could find something more permanent but in the end he couldn't bear it. The things you stopped noticing after fifteen years - sometimes, conversely, the very things that had helped you fall in love in the first place - were suddenly amplified. The way she always hummed when she made coffee in the morning, whatever her mood. The scent of her moisturiser. The way she chewed her pencil end, even though she admitted it was a habit that drove her crazy when others did it.

You don't know what you've got until it's gone…

Or almost gone. Being reminded every day of what he was about to lose would have been too much to bear. Not that he would call the current circumstances particularly bearable.

Instead, he had rented a small studio flat a ten minute walk away. He could easily have afforded something bigger and he certainly could have afforded something less sparsely furnished but he didn't want a new home right now. He just wanted somewhere to retreat and lick his wounds.

Privately he admitted to himself that the feeling of temporariness helped perpetuate the charade: perhaps it wasn't all quite over. He knew he was kidding himself. He was not the kind of man to give up without a fight and he believed he had fought hard for Emma. She just didn't want him any more.

As he reached the building and entered the lobby, he wondered if he should just let her go now. The painting? She could have it. Who needed a reminder of all the things they'd never have again? She had transformed his life over the last fifteen years. A canvas, however stunning, was a poor substitute.

In his 'kitchenette' - one counter, a sink and a toaster and kettle - he poured a glass of whisky, took a mouthful and then shook his head and emptied the rest of the glass down the sink. He was drinking too much. It wasn't habitual but it could easily become so. Whisky - even damn good whisky - was even less of a substitute for Emma than a Masters' seascape.

He would call her in the morning, he decided. She could have the painting. Forget the auction. Forget the road trip.

If you love someone set them free…

She wouldn't come back to him, he suddenly knew that. And perhaps it would indeed mean she never had been his, but oddly he was cheered by this thought. Nobody could own someone as free as Emma. She was born to soar. He had always believed they could soar together and the realisation that he had been wrong crushed his heart in a vice of pain. She had given him so much in the last fifteen years, made so many sacrifices. This would be his final opportunity to give Emma something she really wanted: her freedom. After everything he had put her through, it would be the very least he could offer.

How much is a life worth?

Mariana Rodriguez is the eldest daughter of a Colombian drug lord. Growing up in Villanueva, Colombia, she has never wanted for anything. Private schools, a lavish lifestyle, and the safety of the Cartel that her father works for.
At nineteen, she's got her entire life mapped out, and what a good life it's going to be: graduate from college, move to America, and finally be free from the stifling grip of the Cartel.

Only, her father messes up. A shipment of cocaine - a very large, very valuable shipment - is seized by the authorities whilst under his care and he becomes liable for the debt. Half a million dollars worth of cocaine.
Half a million dollars he does not have.

But he has a daughter, a very smart one, a daughter who would give up her very existence and offer herself as payment for her father's sins, to ensure her family survives.

But falling in love with the man who owned her wasn't part of the plan ...

O-M-G!  I could use just about every swear word known to man...this book was a freaking ride!  I'm telling you a ride!  I was so mesmerized by the story I kept putting it down because I didn't want it too end.  This is my first book by Lili St. Germain and I'm thinking why the hell did I wait so long to read her.  I will now go back and read the books I have of hers on my TBR list...yep they moved up a big freaking notch! 
This is not a lovey dovey romance novel.  It's dark, captivating, cruel, intense, and hot!  It weaves the Gypsy Brothers MC and the Il Sangue Cartel in a fast paced crazy and brutal story.   You can pick this book up and not have read any of her other books in the Gypsy Brothers....complete standalone series, it's a prequel.  

Mariana"Ana" is a smart mouth, beautiful strong girl.  I loved her!!!  She's seen a lot in her nineteen years.  She's had to deal with the life of being a drug lords daughter.  She's had a life of wealth, but one day things change and the life she had is no longer.  She's been taken from her family to fulfill a debt.  She's been given to the head of the Cartel, Emilio Ross.  But soon another steps in and takes control of her...Dornan, VP of the Gypsy Brothers   He's her angel and devil all wrapped up in a sexy package.  Would he save her?  Or destroy her?  Would she survive this hell? 

"He was nothing.  He's was everything.  He was the only thing I had."
That prologue oh geez...it had me right from there.  I will say this ends with a cliffhanger of sorts.  But I will definitely be 1-clicking Kingpin when its released...I need more NOW!  

The story and the characters flow wonderfully.  You will be sucked into this dark and gritty book, you won't want it to end.  This might be one of my best reads this year so far!  Phenomenal!  5 Plus Stars!

His eyes lit up at that as his gaze traveled across my chest and wandered down to the most private of places. I was clothed and covered in the right places, but in front of him, I felt completely naked. The feeling was unnerving and delicious all at once, which only confused me further.

So he’s sexy as hell. It doesn’t matter. He’s the enemy.

‘It doesn’t matter anyway,’ I added hastily. ‘I’ve got a nasty case of the clap. Better not rape me or your pico might fall off.’ I thrust my chin out as I used the Spanish term for ‘small dick’, smirking at the Gypsy Brother as his warm hands continued to roam every bit of bare flesh on my arms.
Dornan laughed at my admission, a throaty noise full of gravel and insolence that made me increasingly unsteady on my feet.
‘I’m not going to rape you,’ he replied, amusement dancing in his dark eyes. ‘And you don’t have the clap. So don’t use that one on me.’
