Christianna Thomas’ life was boring, When her sister Alexandra convinces her that it’s time to live a little, she embarks on a night out but manages to retain no memory of the event. She contents herself, however, with her new career as a writer – something she’s always wanted to do.
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?

Favorite Quotes:

 

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.

 

My Review:

 

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.

About the Author   Ashlee Taylor

Ashlee Taylor has always loved to read. She was practically born with a book in hand. She even wrote short stories and vignettes for fun at age eleven.

As she grew up reading was put to the side but the book Fifty Shades of Grey brought back the love of the written word. Swallowing every book she could get her hands on while befriending authors. Eventually becoming a beta reader and helping authors work out critical scenes and plot progressions.

Through this process, Ashlee decided to write the stories in her head.

    That first quote made me giggle. How many of us have done that exact thing with the almost same results. Hilarious! This sounds like a quirky little read. May have to give it a chance.

    “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’m pretty sure the author stole these lines directly from my diary, ha. I was lukewarm on this one until I read “mafioso.” That’s an interesting twist on the trope!
