This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

A Love So Dangerous
Oh boy, Gabe and Caitlin are a modern day Robin Hood. Caitlin is totally involved with her younger brothers and her niece to deal after the other adults, her mother and sister, leave her alone to deal with this mess. Her father is a real loser and makes a bad situation even worse. Babe to her rescue! He's a wealthy trust fund baby that loves to make wrongs right. When he meets Caitlin he has the answers to her problems, but are they legal? You have to read this book to find out what they are up to! It's a cliff hanger but totally worth it!
Loved this story!
Caitlyn is young and extremely stressed out. She dropped out of high school and is now raising her three younger brothers and 3-year-old niece since her mom and sister bailed and her dad is a drunk. She is about to lose it all too. On the night of her 20th birthday, she goes out dancing with her friend. She loses herself in the music and finds herself grinding on an old classmate, Gabe. Gabe comes from a very wealthy family and doesn't really understand why Caitlyn "enables" her parents and sister. He decides that he wants to help her out and talks her into being Maid Marian to his Robin Hood. Things heat up between them fast but will it last?
I loved this book! I really feel for Caitlyn and how stressed out she is all the time. Raising 1 kid at the age of 20 is hard enough but 4 is tremendously difficult. When Gabe offers to help her out I wasn't surprised at the form of the offer. He just had a bad boy vibe from the get go so his thievery fit. The reasons he was doing it was a little surprising though.
This book ends on a cliffhanger so I'm waiting in suspense for the next book. It's been a while since I read a book with a cliffhanger that made me want to read the next book so I enjoyed that. I can't wait to see what Lili Valente has in store for the characters next!
