Illicit Desire Synopsis:
Raphael is everything I should run away from…
Cora Milan came to Miami to get a fresh start, away from the memories and stigma that followed her and her brother at home. When she’s mugged, Raphael Ortiz rescues her. He’s sexy, successful, and dangerous—Miami’s most eligible bachelor and it’s most elusive. A cartel lord who lives on the wrong side of the law, with only a veneer of respectability. He is the exact opposite of a clean slate, and he makes no apologies for wanting her.
When Raphael forces his way into her life, Cora knows she should run. But the attraction between them is undeniable, and Raphael is a man accustomed to getting what he wants. The more she loses herself in him, the deeper she is drawn into Raphael’s criminal world.
But when her past, and his present collide, both of them will be left grasping for the only thing that can save them from the darkness around them—each other.
OMG, let me tell you I have finished reading this book in 2 hours, yes 2 hours. I could not put it down. The pages could not be read/turned quickly enough. You have to read it.
When ever we read books that feature cartel etc its usually got storylines that you would expect to read, guns, violence. I don't think I have read any that read like this one. Right the way through you are kept guessing as to what Cora Milan is running from and why her brother is running with her. Raphael Ortiz is head of the Cartel, we read this story from his point of view, there isn't that much violence in it, and if there is its the underlying threats that are there if you read between the lines. Its a change to read this kind of story.
Cora and Raphael are hot for one another. but is that enough. The character's fit together like a jigsaw. I dont think there was anyone I thought didn't fit. The plot is fantastic.
This book is effortless to read. It flows perfectly. I could not get enough of this story. The whole book comes to life as soon as you get on the first page. It plays out inside your head like a movie. Except when your watching a box set you can automatically skip onto the next one, We have to wait to see what happens next. Taylor YOU ARE KILLING ME RIGHT NOW, SERIOUSLY.......
This book is amazing. If you don't add it to your "TBR" list you are seriously missing out.
This gets 5/5 stars and 3/5 for movie moments.
