Can’t Walk Away
(The Thomas Family Chronicles #1)
by Ashlee Taylor
During an event held for her father, she comes face to face with a man she thought had only been a dream.
Nicholas Prescotti, too, has been haunted by that night and this woman he’s only seen in flashes that he doesn’t believe are real. It took one moment for Nicholas to see Christianna before the memories of that mysterious night come flooding back.
As they find in each other something they could never have anticipated, their lives are overshadowed by the danger that threatens them both.
When Christianna learns of the truths and dangers, will she leave Nicholas or will she discover that she can’t walk away?
I’d been sick for the past couple of weeks, having dizzy spells along with trouble keeping anything down. Several scenarios were running through my head, and the internet had diagnosed me as having everything from scurvy to cancer.
I tried hard to pay attention to them. I couldn’t; I was still on the island of disbelief and desperately looking for a raft to get the hell out of here.
Can’t Walk Away was packed with intrigue, sizzle and an engaging and well-crafted storyline. I relished the dichotomy of the hardened Mafioso characters going all sweet and marshmallow soft and gooey over a child and love interest. I was easily caught up in the original and entertaining plot and enjoyed the surprisingly sympathetic and endearing characters. The writing flowed smoothly and was colorfully descriptive, well-paced, stunningly sensual, and easy to follow.
