Title: His to Love
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 of her 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.

Damn…can we just sit back and take another look at the cover please? I mean….sigh….ok, now I can concentrate…sort of.
In the Prologue, we meet Tyson Blackwell. An FBI agent who has just been assigned a case that has brought back instant memories, and feelings. After arguing with his boss, he loses his fight and is forced to go undercover, spying on the only woman he’s ever loved, his High School sweetheart, Gabriella Bluejay.
Gabriella Bluejay, a.k.a. Blue, is a Mafia princess. Yep, you heard me right. Her Daddy is basically on the FBI’s most wanted list and now that she is heading home to spend time with her dying mother, she’s forced to “remember” what it’s like being a princess. With her Father getting ready to step down, he has plans for her, but she doesn’t want to be involved with the family business. The only person she can think about is the one person she thought she’d never see again, Tyson, her Blackbird. While Bluejay and Blackbird start rekindling the love they had for each other back in high school, the events that start taking place within the family are starting to unravel everything…including what she thoughts was the start of her second chance with Blackbird.
This started off so promising for me. I was completely engrossed with the story, but somewhere around the half way mark, I sort of…tuned out. The story actually became predictable, but I still couldn’t pull myself from being intrigued. I know, it’s a weird combo, but the only way to explain it from my point of view. Overall, this was enjoyable and entertaining. The Epilogue has me curious enough to find out what Declan’s story is next. I’m looking forward to it.
