They say your first kiss should be earned.
Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.
They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.
Mine were broken before we left church.
They say your heart only beats for one man.
Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.
I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.
Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.
They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.
I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.
And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.
This is the first book I’ve read by JL Shen, and it will not be the last. I enjoyed it! It was a bit long, but the story was good with great characters, good plot twists, a few curves thrown in for good measure.
Francesca is a naïve, young woman at 19, who thinks she’s in love with her long-time family friend Angelo, then she meets Wolfe at a masquerade ball where she plans to get her first real kiss from Angelo who she believes is her true love. But instead of Angelo kissing her its Wolfe and since Wolfe is a crass, mean unimpressed man who is a rich Senator on a mission of revenge.
The attraction between Francesca and Wolfe grows with every page into the book from hate to love and every emotion in between.
Get your copy from Kindle Unlimited like I did and enjoy several hours of good reading.
Looking forward to more books by JL Shen.
Thank you and Happy Reading!

“It was easier to run away than watch another guy decide I’m too much trouble—too broken or too slow or too…me. I didn’t understand we couldn’t go back to being just friends. Or…that I didn’t want to. ”
Camilla Delgado. Computer genius. Former explosives ordinance expert. Wounded on the dusty roads of Afghanistan, she exchanged her dreams of adventure for a life behind a computer. Trapped by her cane—and her scars—Cam avoids the “real” world whenever she can.
Until her newest online gaming buddy asks her out for coffee.
West, a former Navy SEAL, looks more like a cover model for Men’s Health than a human being. And his slight drawl? Hotter than the espresso Cam spills down her shirt.
But Cam doesn’t do charming. And all of her instincts scream, “RUN!”
West doesn’t understand what he said—or did—to drive his sexy and smart gaming partner away. She set him ablaze, and nothing can put out these flames.
Unable to forget the man who saw her and not her scars, Cam lets West draw her out of her shell.
Now, she’s hot on the trail of a hacker threatening her career while navigating the minefield of falling in love.
When ghosts from West’s past and fears for the future threaten, will Cam find the courage to lower her defenses and let him in?
BREAKING HIS CODE is a standalone romantic suspense featuring the men and women of Emerald City Security and Hidden Agenda K&R. Meet these former military heroes and computer geniuses who’ll show you just how steamy and heart-wrenching love can be.
Can broken be beautiful?
A●R●C ~ I was given Second Sight: Away From Keyboard Book #4 by Patricia D. Eddy as an Advanced Readers Copy (A●R●C) from Give Me Book Promotions, this book releases on March 12, 2019, I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as it is book #1 in the series for the new release coming up.
I loved this first book in the series, Breaking His Code: Away From Keyboard Book #1. I liked that the leads both had to learn to trust in order to make a relationship work. Usually we read about how one person needs to work twice as hard as the other to make a relationship work but when they both need to work equally as hard it works for me.
For Cam trusting is something she doesn’t do with anyone, since her family kicked her out especially after she was blown up while in the military, everyone shares with her, but she shares with no one until Sampson West. Gamers make such strange bedfellows. Women game just as much as men, it’s just not something we see everyday and Cam AKA Camilla Delgado works had and plays hard. She also gives back to her fellow vets with chat rooms, forums, information, etc. I want to be like Cam when I grow up. She’s there for her fellow Vets with whatever information she a give them even if it’s just someone to talk to.
Both being Vets with PTSD is hard enough but add trust issues and it’s a rough relationship but love always finds a way.

It was always him. The one I shouldn’t want, shouldn’t crave, the one who could destroy my carefully built life.
Hagen Lykaios was the essence of sin, indulgence, and danger – everything I knew to avoid.
All it took was one unexpected touch, and he consumed me, left me begging, needy, and hungry for more.
He said if I entered his world he would corrupt me, own me, and change all that I had ever known…and you know what? I went anyway.

Penny has always tried to take care of her younger half brother Adrian but he’s about to turn 21 and get his shares of Kipos International the company their father started and left them after he was killed in a car accident, Adrian’s mother Dara is the evil bad in this book, Penny and Adrian both believe she had something to do with their fathers accident so they ask the Lykaios brothers to have it looked into before Arian’s birthday so he can do with the company as he sees fit upon his 21st.
Serious family drama is the name of this book, horrible step mother, and not all is at it appears, asking the right questions might get you answers you might not be ready to handle.
