Rhapsody ( The Teplo Files #2)by Ayden K. Morgan
After Anton Vetrov brutally murders a young girl as a warning to Tristan Riley, the broken DEA agent believes the best thing for Lillian Maddox to do would be to stay far, far away from him. But Lillian knows a thing or two about fear, and she's not willing to let the man she loves push her away that easily. If he won't fight for them, she will... even if that means risking her life to prove she's strong enough to live in his world.
Her plan ends in disaster when she's dragged out of Teplo at gunpoint, forcing Tristan onto a collision course with the Vetrov family and Pedro Francisco. With nothing left to lose except the only woman who has ever mattered to him, he will do whatever it takes to stop Vetrov and Francisco from ever hurting her again.
But he doesn't know they've been waiting for him to make his move. When he does, all hell breaks loose, and his life is on the line. It's up to Lillian and the DEA to save him, and she's terrified they won't make it in time.
Thrust headlong into a violent, bloody confrontation with the Vetrov family, Lillian comes face to the face with the heartbreaking realization that maybe she doesn't belong in Tristan's world, after all. When the smoke clears, will he be able to convince his ballerina that she's the best thing for him, or will he lose her and the chance at a real future once and for all?
Rhapsody is intended for readers aged 18 and over due to graphic scenes of violence, drug abuse, and sexual situations.
" You own every single thought I have."
She felt like she was drowning in the depths of his eyes.
There was so much emotion there. So much hope.
His lips brushed like butterfly wings across hers.
I was gifted this book in exchange for a honest review
After reading Ravished it left me wanting to find out if Tristian and Lillian survive the Vetrov family and Pedro Francisco, the cartel dealer.
Rhapsody had it all, it had the suspense of the nightclub life, drugs, murder, the DEA take down and overly written sexual moments between Tristian and Lillian. At times, Lillian frustrated the hell out of me with wanting to put herself in these dangerous situations to protect Tristian. I found this story had a lot to do with the two main characters always blaming themselves when something goes wrong. They are to afraid to be responsible if the other gets hurt, if they could put that aside then they could be together.
There was one character that got my attention Micheal Kincaid, DEA agent that would do anything to make sure Lillian is safe. Kincaid is a good looking smart-ass man that I certainly want to read more of.
I really did like the storyline and the characters are easy to like.
