Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?
I’ve got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in Happily Ever After. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman’s eyes and see something that’s going to keep my mind off all the s**t I refuse to think about for an hour or two.
And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.
A bad man like me…
Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.
He’s a criminal hiding behind a million dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He’s the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.
More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.
I don’t want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good…
Warning Part the Second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.
A modern day Robin Hood?
A Review of A Love So Dangerous (To The Bone #1) by Lili Valente
A modern Day Robin Hood - 5+++++ stars
I absolutely LOVE Lili's writing style and characters.
I have to say, this isn't like what I am used to reading as the characters are actually committing a criminal act, even if their reasons are honorable. I can totally understand where Caitlin is coming from since she has been desperately trying to hold her family together in every way she can, because she became part of the system at one point because her parents couldn't take care of them. She dropped out of High School to raise her brothers and her niece, after her Mother took off and her sister decided to follow her drug dealer, leaving her two month old as with Caitlin as well. Her Father isn't much help either, since he prefers to drink his problems away, leaving Caitlin to provide for the family of six on her own.
Caitlin is out celebrating her birthday with her best friend when Gabe sees her on the dance floor and goes after her. While they both enjoy the music and the dirty dancing together, when she finally looks up and recognizes him, she pulls a disappearing act on him. Gabe just happens to be one of the guys she went to school with when she had a scholarship, but the Cooney name caused her to have to deal with a lot of harassment.
Gabe has all the money he wants and the ability to get away with almost anything. Why is he on this path of playing Robin Hood and why does it seem he has no regard to his own life. Why does he want to drag Caitlin along with him? I have to say that I loved the overall story and the characters. This just goes to show you that the world isn't always black and white.

Wow, that is all I can say about A Love So Dangerous. The title says it all. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Lili Valente throws a curve ball and your spun into an emotional roller coaster. Gabe and Caitlin are just perfect together. Lust, love, darkness, edginess are just some of the things you'll feel when your reading it. Their relationship is not the norm but then again their courtship has not been one as well. One summer, that is what they have promised one another. But what happens when the heart wants more?
Danger lurks in the shadows, the aftermath of Caitlin and Gabe's activities. Although their illegal activities were done for justice, in the end it awakens a monster. A monster that will not stop until Caitlin and Gabe pay.
As always, job well done Lili!! Can't wait for A Love So Deadly, the continuing story of Gabe and Caitlin.
4 1/2 Stars
A Love So Dangerous is the first of a three-part series from one of my favorite, must-read authors, Lili Valente. She has given us a taste into the journey of an unexpected love between Caitlin and Gabe, and in her usual style, has given us a story that will not only pull at your heart, but it will also have you hanging on the edge of your chair with moments of suspense and danger.
Caitlin is living a difficult life dropping out of school to raise her three brothers and her niece because they cannot count on their alcoholic father who doesn't work and spends money faster than she can earn it, and an absent mother and sister who have both deserted them. She is forced to work two jobs to support her family and is always struggling with money problems. On the night of her 20th birthday, Caitlin decides to take the night off from her worries and responsibilities and when she unexpectedly runs into Gabe, they feel an immediate connection. Their one night together ultimately leads to a bit of danger, not to mention an unexpected hot and steamy encounter which overwhelms them both.
Although they agree to keep their relationship simple, limited to one summer together, they both quickly become aware of the deep feelings they are developing for one another. From the beginning, we get a feel for Gabe’s almost immediate need to protect Caitlin, not only from their shenanigans, but also from anyone who he feels does not have her best interests in mind. And not only does Ms. Valente give us some hot, sensual moments, she also writes the most loving and beautifully tender scenes and some heartbreaking ones as well.
As I continued turning the final pages, all I could think was “No! No! Don’t do this to me!” But as she had forewarned, Ms. Valente left me hanging wondering what will happen next. I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 with the continuation of this series and hopefully answering the questions Ms. Valente has left in my mind.
