Goodreads synopsis: What draws and binds people together-circumstance, experience, blood? Can you change what you’re made of or is it predestined? If you fight it, will it just come back to you ten-fold? Antonio and Megan are running. Running away. Megan’s father told them to. Antonio and Megan fly to South Bend, Indiana. They are hiding out at Notre Dame until it’s safe to come home. But will it ever be safe with the line of work Antonio and Megan’s father do? There is no escaping the mob. It’s part of your existence.
Review: I've completely fallen in love with Antonio and Megan. And yes, now I'm hoping for something to happen between Vito and Erin. I think he'd be good for her. It looks like that's where the author is headed for those two. Where the first book ended is exactly where the second book picks up, and even though they go to South Bend, it doesn't stop the Mafia action. I guess once you're in, you're in for life, but its not like they're trying to get away from the lifestyle. Antonio is still doing things for his dad behind Megan's back, and when she finds out, she's accepting. I still want to know why Megan's mom is the way she is, and I'm hoping that comes out in the third book. Overall, the book was another quick, enjoyable read.
