An unconventional love is tested to its limits in this completely immersive dark ménage suspense, for fans of JL Perry and Pepper Winters.
Mateo is used to being in the spotlight, he craves it in everything he does . . . except when it comes to his love life – that is firmly in the closet.
Tomas shuns the spotlight, the one he was born into, he wants nothing to do with it or his high-flying family who now reject him for his choices in love.
But Tomas’ and Mateo’s carefully constructed lives are turned inside out when they discover a beautiful, battered woman on their doorstep. The woman with the sapphire eyes has no memory of who she is or how she got there. Can they help her remember before the men who are after her find her first?
The first standalone book in the BRATVA JEWELS series from the author of the DIRTY TEXAS books, JA Low.
If you choose this book for the melt-your-panties-part only, than I would recommend something lighter, like Blackmailed. But if you like a heartbreaking beautiful story with suspense, crying and a lot of love AND some hot and steamy, then you definitely need to read this book.
This story is about Tomas and Matteo, two lovers, who are firmly in the closet. Because of Mateo’s career and Tomas’ family they can’t risk the rest of the world to know that they are no straight friends living together, but bi-sexual lovers in a very tight relationship.
You just gotta love Matteo, the easy outgoing personality who loves to smile and make everybody happy. Especially the reserved and sometimes grumpy Tomas. But when they find an unconscious girl on their doorstep, they don’t realize she will turn their lives upside down.
Zoe wakes up in a hospital, with Matteo at her side. She doesn’t recall anything of her past, and certainly not who has beaten her nearly to death. She gets taken in by Matteo and Tomas to recover and to try to restore her memory. But where only flashes reappear, they don’t make much sense to her.
What also doesn’t make sense is the strong attraction Zoe feels towards both men. But she does, and it is mutual. So, after stumbling upon a hot make-out session between Mateo and Tomas, she is included in their lovemaking. Fan your panties, because those are hot scenes.
But as Zoe’s memory is restoring, the horrible truth is catching up with her. She was one of the Bratva Jewels: high class escorts, managed by the Russian mafia. And one thing is for sure: the mafia is very protective of its jewels…
Heartbreaking, full of suspense, but also with a lot of tender love and care. Absolute wonderful story. Four and a half stars from me. Can’t wait for the next book: Diamond. Well done JA Low and a thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
