Fortunately, a young woman finds him and saves his life, and Aris must find a way to repay her back the debt of saving his life. But Aris finds that when it comes down to Mia Williams, a debt doesn’t always have to be paid with blood and money, but sometimes with love and lust.
As Aris becomes more attached to the woman who saved his life, till the point that he doesn’t want to go back to the woman he has to get engaged to, Aris must make a choice. Either he must choose his new-found attraction with Mia or follow the word of his father and get engaged to Evangelia.
My Thoughts 💭
I loved this book! Aris is left for dead and Mia saves him. They grow close while he’s recovering but not close enough for Aris to tell her who he truly is. They fall for each other knowing that Aris has an arranged engagement that he’ll have to commit to when he goes home. When Mia is in danger Aris protects his woman at all costs. This was an interesting mafia romance and I definitely recommend!
