The moment I looked into his eyes, I knew I was in trouble.

The second I heard his name, I knew I should stay away.

Our fathers were mortal enemies—Chicago crime bosses from rival families.

But that didn’t stop Leo Conti from pursuing me.
Being together was dangerous, reckless, and totally hot.
He wanted me. I wanted him.

What could possibly go wrong?

Daphne Gallo Knows she is in trouble when she lays eyes on a mysterious man but when she discovers his name, that seals the deal that she should stay well away from him. Their fathers are sworn enemies, crime bosses from rival families. Leo Conti doesn’t care who they are and what it means, he can’t and won’t be deterred.

Daphne is very much a family girl and the only female sibling with very protective brothers. Not to be fooled, she’s very gutsy and full of sass. However, she knows that it is a car crash waiting to happen if she was to get involved with Leo. The family are hard-working law-abiding citizens, but their father has led a life of crime and has spent most of his children’s lives in and out of jail. Daphne steers clear from that lifestyle as does Leo.

Leo is a hardworking businessman of a reputable chain of hotels. His father is like Daphne’s father and delves on the wrong side of the law. Their fathers were once friends but fell out many years ago and are now arch enemies. Leo can’t resist the charms and beauty of Daphne and will not be deterred from pursuing her.

The two spend a bit of time together, Daphne feels guilty at the trouble it will cause and tries to break things off. Leo tries to fight for the woman that has captured his attention and it just seems an impossibility for the two star-crossed lovers to continue the path of their attraction.

The chemistry is off the charts and was oozing between every scene and word written. I was rooting for these two and felt that knowing the backstory, them ever being together was hopeless. It was as if the side characters had a radar and knew the protagonists were seeing somebody in secret. Flow was enjoyable to read, the supporting characters as they were just as interesting. I’m intrigued by Daphne’s best friend Michelle. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding her but it made me chuckle how she knew Daphne was up to no good with somebody that was completely forbidden.

I enjoyed this offering but did want a bit more. As this is a series, I hope we’ll get to see them again and judging where their story took me, I’d love to find out what happened, especially as the ending and all the characters are shrouded in mystery. The author pulled me into this story and I look forward to the next installment.

BLOG TOUR ~ DATING THE ENEMY by Nicole Williams

Today KFF are on tour with Nicole Williams’ all-new enemies-to-lovers romance, DATING THE ENEMY

 

AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

Ms. Romance, Hannah Arden, writes one of the top read relationship advice columns in the nation. Mr. Reality, Brooks North, writes the top read relationship advice column. Ms. Romance believes in true love and soul mates. Mr. Reality believes love is a term humanity has assigned to the primal instinct to procreate. She believes in fate—he in chance. She knows there’s one right person for everyone—he knows there are multiple ones. The two writers couldn’t be more polarized on relationships. They’re professional rivals, and philosophical antagonists.

For eight years, their battles have been fought with words and ink. That changes when they apply for the same position at the World Times and find themselves face-to-face for the first time. Brooks isn’t the sour-faced, antiquity of a man Hannah pictured. And Hannah isn’t exactly the middle-aged shrew with cat hair on her housedress that Brooks imagined either.

In lieu of competing for the promotion traditional ways, the two writers are presented with playing the leading roles in a social experiment unlike any before. Can a person be tricked into falling in love? Can a relationship be crafted under the right string of circumstances? Hannah knows the answer. So does Brooks.

Agreeing to the terms, the two set out on a three-month dating experiment, live-streamed for the world to watch. All Hannah has to do to win is not fall in love with the narcissistic brute. All Brooks has to do is get the starry-eyed dreamer to fall in love with him. Both are so confident in their philosophies, they expect the challenge to be easy.

With the world watching, Brooks and Hannah will be forced to confront their beliefs and conclude, once and for all, who’s right. The answer is one neither of them saw coming.

“Where do you think you’re going?”
​I jolted. Brooks had an annoying talent of being able to appear out of thin air. “As far away from this dance floor as I can get.”
​“But we haven’t danced yet.” Brooks crept in front of my path, forcing me to stop or crash into him.
​Braking to a stop, I shot him a look. “I’ll be sure to shed some tears for that later. When I’m asleep.”
​“Someone’s notably grumpier now than they were earlier.” His eyes narrowed in an investigative kind of way. “Methinks you weren’t totally forthcoming about you minding if I danced with other women.”
​The cameraman was leaning in, our ever-present third wheel, but I didn’t feel the need to lower my voice. “Methinks you were onto something when you expressed trepidation over your manhood’s functioning properties after tonight.”
​Brooks let out a low whistle. “Under the right circumstances, those words, from that mouth, would be such a turn-on.”
​“The right circumstances being what? Your standing appointment with a dungeon and a dominatrix?”
​One dark brow lifted. “Bad kitty.”
​“No. Grumpy cat.” I circled my face before going around him.
His arm whipped out, cinching around my waist to draw me back to him. “Let’s see if I can help with that.” His hand found mine, lifting it, while his other secured at my back, bringing me closer. And closer.
And . . .
“Brooks,” I hissed, remembering the camera before I put into words what I’d just felt.
He didn’t appear the slightest bit fazed. “What was that about my functioning manhood?”
“I don’t want to feel it digging into my stomach when I’m trying to focus on tangoing.”
“Then you shouldn’t have worn that dress.”
“And we’ll lump that in the category known as victim-blaming,” I muttered, trying to ignore the hard swell rubbing against my midsection.
“It’s not your fault my dick has a thing for your dress.” Brooks didn’t lower his voice at all. “It’s his fault, one hundred and ten percent. Total case of dick-blaming right here.”
