I don’t know what I was expecting when I started reading this book but I can say I didn’t expect something so gritty. The cover is so nice and sweet, but the inside was nothing like the cover.
I started out thinking I wasn’t going to like it because there was a lot of information provided in the first chapter that made my head spin. I was 100% wrong because I FLOVED it!
Bottom Of The Sky by Shae Moss gave me all kinds of feels that kept me on my toes throughout the entire book.
I’m going to keep it pretty with this one, with just a very small amount of mess.
First a word from the author. . .
Tragedy set his course for revenge. One woman stands in his way.
The last thing I need is to be saddled with the on-the-run niece of the family I’m about to take down. Gianna Silva wants me to help her find her missing mother. But I’ve got bigger fish to fry—namely, her cousins Stefano and Santos Silva. I’m working on the inside, feeding information to the FBI, and I’m about to drop the net on their ring of counterfeiters. To keep Gianna out of my way, I’ve agreed to help her but under one condition: What I say goes. No questions. No pushback. I make the rules.
The problem is Gianna Silva doesn’t know the meaning of the word “rule” and she’s on to me. For two years, I’ve hidden my true identity behind a wall built from stone-cold revenge. I thought it was indestructible—especially against someone with the last name of Silva—the family I’ve vowed to destroy…
If I could find my missing mom by myself I would, but the only enemies she’s ever had are my dead father and his powerful family. Confronting the Silvas alone is too dangerous. I need an insider who knows how to play their game. John Rossi, with his cool, bad-boy confidence and access to the family is my best hope. I’ve bargained away the last dollar in my savings account in exchange for his help, but I’m beginning to think I made a deal with the devil.
I didn’t expect his rules to include sharing a cabin—and a bedroom with him—northwest of Nowheresville. I don’t trust him, or my attraction to him. But to find my mom, I’ll break every one of his damn rules, regardless of the consequences…
I don’t care for cops and I don’t care for informants. I’m always pro bad guy. Maybe, it’s because I grew up in the hood and the police where I come from do more harm than good. But in this book, I was rooting for the informant. Don’t get it twisted, I was never #teamFBI. I just wanted to throw that out there.
John is deep in undercover with some local hot shot criminals and he wants to talk them down from hurting someone he loved. Gianna is estranged from her family and needs help finding her mother – that’s where John comes in, even if he doesn’t want to.
Gianna was everything that John wasn’t. She was sweet, kind, but had the don’t fuck with me attitude down to a fucking science. John was dangerous, rugged, and hard fucking core. He had a body and attitude that screamed, don’t fuck with me or I will kill you.
Told from dual POV’s you really get a chance to see into each others inner demons and they both had a few.
Let me tell y’all, the chemistry between John and Gianna was everything. It was practically vibrating off the pages. From their very first encounter the air around them wass thick and palpable. At times I felt like I needed to leave the room so they could have a moment. LOL!!!
While John is trying hard to keep his identity secret while undercover, he isn’t doing so well with keeping his feelings in check when it comes to Gianna. But here’s the thing. . . he’s not just undercover, he’s undercover with Gianna’s family. That kicks everything up a few notches and adds a great deal of risk to his already risky situation.
Gianna doesn’t want to get too caught up with John when she has her family to think about. She tries time after time to keep her thoughts off of this grumpy, sex on wheels man, but it’s hard when he is flaunting all his sexiness around. A girl can only deny herself for so long before she gives in, right?
There was so much suspense and drama in this book that I found myself unable to put it down, even after working for 16 hours in the hospital. That’s some serious commitment. It was just that every page I turned contained new information that I just had to figure out before my mind could rest.
Reading the book was like watching a mob movie on HBO and I love mob movies. I think I was a crime lord in a previous life. Regardless of the fact. . . I loved when John would talk all dirty and commanding. I think there may be something wrong with me.
“There is no more, Gianna. The only thing I can offer you is a good fuck.” – John
I would have put my hands up and said, “Okay.”
I loved the story, I loved the characters, I loved the side story, and I loved the main story.
Do I recommend this book? Yes, I do.
Will I read another book by the author? Yes, and I look forward to it.
I told you I would keep it pretty.
TTYL, lovers. . .
Stalk all things messy…
