“The velvet tongue” 
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer” 
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile” 
It’s been known to happen

But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.

I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.

Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games

Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls

I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
In my heart, on my hands.

Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I.

My Review

Dagger in the Sea by Author Cat Porter is suspense-filled, mafia romance novel.

“Tonight, Cinderella had met a foreign prince. An indecent one. Very indecent.”

Eloquent, riveting, gripping.  These are words I would use to describe what I thought just after reading the prologue. There’s nothing like getting your hands on a great mystery and playing the part of the detective to break apart every sentence in an attempt to get to the truth.  While this novel had many unknown components, it was replete with the forward play on sexual intentions.  Coupling these two aspects together, Author Cat Porter gave us an insatiable desire to tear at the pages and devour every word.

“I came because I need you to know that you touched my life. You’ve changed me.”

The main backdrop of the story being set in Greece created an allure and magnetism that played into the dangerous and sensual.  This novel literally took us there, planted us with these characters, made us part of the casting “extras”, and gave us sideline seats to its tangled and ever-changing world.

“I want to bite you, suck on you, lick you.”

Turo was an intense and brooding man, filled with purpose and surety.  Equal in his caliber was Adri.  Although graceful and undeniably feminine, she was able to eye her prize and make it happen.  These two were quite the pair. At some point in this story, my thoughts for Turo and Adri went something like this, “More.  More.  Tell me more.  Give me more.  More!  MORE!  YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!”  In the midst of all of the threats and uncertainty, the author put us in a lust bubble of want, need, and desire that drove the story faster, harder, and deeper.

“…you need to stop functioning and live. Live big.”

Dagger in the Sea was an intricately written and multi-faceted novel, skillfully crafted to lure us in, hook us, drop us in the deep, and leave us breathless.
