In the explosive debut of Stacey Lynn’s irresistible Fireside series, a pair of estranged lovers are reunited by dangerous loyalties—and intoxicating desire.
Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one ofher father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.
Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.
Told from dual points of view, His to Love follows the story of Blue and Tyson. Blue and Tyson were in love as long as anyone could remember, and then one day when she turns 18, her father sends her away. Tyson spends many years looking for Blue, only to come up empty. Years later, Tyson will find himself working for the FBI and will be reunited with the last person he ever thought of….Blue. Now begins a web of lies, betrayal and deceit. Will Tyson be able to plead his case and win over the only woman he ever loved?? There’s only one way to find out…
I’m just gonna keep this one short and sweet. His to Love was such an enjoyable read. It’s a great second chance romance. I loved the whole Mafia vibe. This story had my curiosity from the very beginning. I was very curious about Tyson and Blue. I loved their connection. It was so strong that even the time they were separated, could not kill off their feelings. Tyson was a great alpha male and even though he kept his secrets, he kept them for the right reasons. I loved watching Tyson and Blue navigate their way through all the angst and drama.
His to Love is a fantastic debut novel. I loved the writing. It’s got the perfect balance of angst, drama, romance and suspense. Tyson and Blue’s story will keep you on the edge of your seat; wondering how everything will play out. I think this series is off to a great start and I’m looking forward to seeing where the series will go next.
