Synopsis: Vicki Calvetti made it out of the mob—or so she hoped. But when the old family hitman, the FBI, the Justice Department, and a smoking hot man from her past crash land on her doorstep, she learns she’s not quite done.An undercover cop chasing revenge, Blake Reilly gets the shock of his life when Vicki walks back into his life and into his club full of more drug dealers than a pharmaceutical convention.
Catching up doesn’t take long, and their undeniable chemistry is full-speed-ahead until someone ends up dead, putting both their lives at risk unless Vicki can remember the secrets she paid to forget.
My 5* Review:
I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading an action packed second chance romance and enthralling mobster suspense! I had thoroughly enjoyed ‘Untouchable‘ the first novel in this series and the Christmas novella special story, ‘An Untouchable Christmas‘ so jumped at the opportunity to read this sequel. This story concerns Victoria Calvetti who helped return her kidnapped nephew to his mum, her sister-in-law and best friend, Sophie, in the first novel in this series. Now Vicki hopes she, too, has escaped from the mob but her hopes are in vain. As her Uncle Manny, a mob hit man, leaves clues for her to follow she spots her first love, Blake Reilly and follows him into a club full of mobsters. She used to be untouchable because of her brother and father but, as both are now dead, others are out for revenge on her family. Walking into the Club could unwittingly ruin the undercover operation that Blake is involved with and puts both their lives at risk. . . .
This is a fast paced sequel which builds on the previous novel. It is very easy to empathise with Vicki, who has done her best to estrange herself from her mob family. You’d think that would be easy as both her parents and brother are now dead but no, once a mob princess they’re unlikely to let you go. She has secrets that are hidden, so deep that she can’t remember them. Can her job as a hypnotherapist help? What is it that others seek from her? Can Blake still protect her? He’s determined she won’t escape him this time but will their romance be rekindled or will the mob, their past and their family connections force them apart again?
When you step into this story, take care, beware of a hot undercover ex, drug running mobsters from a variety of gangs and not all on the same side, and whatever you do, don’t forget her elderly uncle who was a mob hit man. With Blake and Mick out for revenge, can they still keep Vicki safe? This is a great page turner with a superb surprise ending!
Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me, without obligation, an ARC of this novel via NetGalley.

Link to my review of ‘Untouchable’
Cindy grew up on stories of mob bosses, horse thieves, cold-blooded killers, and the last honest man. Most of those stories were even true. She has ten siblings, some of whom are older than her mother, has nieces and nephews older than her, and once went to a horse auction with John Wayne. Well, with him in the sense that he was there, and she was also… there. She was the munchkin in line for his autograph with tangled hair and bruised knees that liked to dance on her daddy’s dusty cowboy boots and listen to his tall tales.
With her love of storytelling and heroes, it’s no wonder she turned to books and stories after her father died. She skipped most of the eighth grade to bury herself in books while hidden in her closet, because she was still looking for the perfect story and the last honest man. Her search took her around the world with the Air Force as well as around the world with her education. She’s visited more countries than she can remember, nearly every state in the U.S., and has more degrees than the Tin Man.
As a single mom, she’s still gambling, betting on herself for the first time in her life, turning her lifelong love of storytelling into the one thing she can’t live without: writing. She writes 10,000 words a week in cafes and coffee shops, and some of those 10,000 words are even worth reading. She has an MA in Creative Writing, is working towards her Master of Fine Arts, and has three jobs, two kids, a Pushcart Nomination, more pets than she can possibly handle, and more works in progress than the crew filling potholes after a long Colorado winter.
