Firstly the Publisher's Summary hasn't quite got the story right.. Shae Black had witnessed her Mafia father's brutal murder when she was just nine years old - it had been a cold blooded Mafia execution but Shae has blocked out most of the bloody memories. Shae had a very mysterious letter - and now, fourteen years later, Shae has returned to Chicago.. the scene of the murder, in the hope that something would trigger her missing memories which could return at any time.
The mysterious letter hadn't made any sense – no matter how many times she read it.. it spoke of secrets.. it spoke of a love affair.. and it spoke of more. That letter would eventually make perfect sense and bring her so much joy.. but first Shae will have to piece the clues together.. understand them.. meet the players.. get her heart ripped out.. face a murderer.. have her life threatened.. and feel the pain of heartbreak and betrayal. Love, happiness, revenge and a new family will eventually be hers.. but angst, drama and bitter words reveal life changing revelations.
When Shae first meets Rex, the handsome Nightclub owner, Shae turns the sexy as sin alpha man down but meeting him for the second time strengthens their all consuming blinding attraction and, what should've been an agreed 'one and done' deal, became so much more because neither one could deny their seismic off the charts chemistry and powerful soul-to-soul connection. Rex has women throwing themselves at him.. for his looks.. for his money.. for the notoriety.. or for his connections so he's perplexed yet grateful that Shae has no clue who he is and who he's related to. Rex and Shae are very happy together until Shae begins to piece some of the clues together.. and she didn't like where they were leading. Then, with a sudden twist or three, everything suddenly came flooding back.. everything became shockingly clear.. and everything went to Hell.
What a great dual POV blissful and entertaining story.. made even better by the wonderful narration of Kai and Wen and I love their style of narration (each sticking to their own gender's voices) which made the story flow smoothly as conversations felt real and natural. The characters are multi-layered - the alpha hero was drool-worthy, thoughtful, loyal, good and very vocal as he deliciously tells the heroine just what he intends to do to her.. and delivers every single time!! The heroine is determined to find answers, driven to uncover the truth and optimistic about getting the missing parts of her memory back.. but her sexy one night stand derails her plans.. well for a while anyway. Good secondary characters too. This isn't a love triangle between the brothers.. and, after the danger, drama and twists have settle down, Shae is left with both men loving her.. but in very different ways.
Worth a credit? Absolutely - it had charm, heat, passion and suspense that climaxes in deadly drama.. the mystery, the characters and the unfolding of secrets totally hooked me in. Certain parts wowed me while other parts were a wee bit predictable.. but I happily devoured the lot because this well-paced journey was such a sweet, sexy, all consuming and beautiful ride.

I liked the story quite a bit. It was a little hard for me to get past the female narration though. She made me think of a very whiny girl. I felt like the female narrator put the wrong emotions in at the worst times. It was so awful !
The male narrator was a whole lot better. He didn't sound fake. I truly enjoyed listening to him. Good job.
Other than that, the story line was really good. I thought I'd guessed the ending, but I was wrong. That made me happy because I hate knowing what will probably happen before the end of a story. It seems like it happens a lot.
