Before he became Tony Delaney’s right-hand man, Tick lost his dreams of being happy. After ten years, he is still haunted by the sudden loss of his fiancée and unborn son. Going through life thinking he doesn’t deserve happiness, his nights become filled with endless one-night stands. That is until he rescues Cyma. As quickly as he saves her, she walks out of his life, disappearing into the crowded Manhattan street. Days later, he accidentally runs into her at a party and his attraction grows stronger.
Cyma’s hard life has been nothing but pain and sorrow. She labels the charismatic stranger who saved her as a knight in shining armor. A chance meeting days later and Tick turns her world upside down. She's scared to hold on to the fairy-tale dream of being with him, but she's even more afraid to let him go.
Can these two somehow heal each other? Will their love survive all of the obstacles that are thrown their way?
I must admit I didn’t read the previous book before starting Mayhem and there are probably some spoilers it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of Mayhem. Holy hell from the very beginning I was hooked and could tell this was going to be an emotional one to put it mildly.
Dante aka Tick won me over from the very start. Could he be an ass? Yes but I think it added to his character. He loves hard and has a temper but not even for a moment was I ever concerned he would use that temper in a negative way towards Cyma. I understood his need to protect her, after what he suffered if he hadn’t been that way then I would have lost respect for him.
Cyma I could understand how the cycle had continued for her before Dante. She has gone through hell and back and she really holds a place in my heart. Her love for her daughter, the things she did so her daughter was taken care of places her above others in my opinion. The greatest joy and at times sacrifice in your life is you child or children so she quickly earned my respect.
Mayhem was anything but what the title would suggest. It was an emotional, sexy and fast paced book that I couldn’t stop reading. I plan on reading the previous book asap and I hope we will get books for Magnum and Manny because I think they deserve to find the woman who knock them on their ass and win their hearts. This is one I recommend for those looking for a new author to try and book to read.
