Miles Away (Carrion, #1) by Addison Kline
The mafia couldn’t kill him.
Prison couldn’t break him.
Going home threatens to do both.
Miles Capadonno has made some mistakes. Once part of the Capadonno crime family, he took the fall for another member of the crime family who once tried to kill him. At age 17, they put a contract out on Miles’ head for neglecting to complete a job. It was a matter of priority. Miles went to his dying mother’s side instead of picking up stolen merchandise from the ship yard. When you’re in with the Capadonno’s, whether you’re blood or sworn in, when they say jump you jump, when they say kill you kill. Ignoring an order is an offense of the highest degree. When they couldn’t kill him, they let Miles take the fall for another Capadonno family member. Now 15 years later, Miles is being released. He is ready to put his past behind him. There’s only one problem. There is still a contract on Miles’ head. This time, Miles is man enough to collect on owed debts, and he will not back down from the family that stabbed him in the back.
Leticia “Letty” Alves is a saucy Latina and Miles’ old high school girlfriend. She was only 16 when Miles was arrested, but she hasn’t stopped wondering about the boy who charmed her all those years ago. Now working as a nurse for a home health agency, Letty’s priorities are to take care of herself and her 18 month old son, Gabriel. But when Miles walks back into her life everything changes, and suddenly, the family that she had avoided all her life, is now breathing down her neck looking for Miles. Letty is no damsel in distress, though. She’s a fighter, and she never backs down from a challenge.
Sparks fly when Miles and Letty reunite. Can they put their differences aside to become one again? Can Miles set down his pride and accept the help and love that Letty can provide? Will Letty get over her resentment over being left so long ago when Miles was arrested? Only readers know for sure.
Welcome to Carrion, New Jersey, where the Capadonno’s call the shots. Miles was away for so long, but now the prodigal son has returned. One thing is for sure, the family business isn’t ready for a bastard like him.
3 Mafia Stars on Goodreads Read from March 08 to 10, 2016
I was so excited to read this book. For one the cover looked amazing and the blurb sounded fab!
I was a little disappointed by the whole thing if I’m being honest! It could have been so much better! The whole thing happens in less then a few days and the whole getting together so quickly was unrealistic and unbelievable in my opinion.
There was no the suspense and darkness and this is what was missing in this book.
In saying all this I would love to read about Knox’s story and if it was released I’d defiantly give it a read!
Also the blurb is incorrect and that irritated me!
“One thing that irritates me so far it that the blurb here on Goodreads is wrong. Letty was 17 and Miles was 18 when everything went down. Then it forwards to 17 years later!”
