I just knew that Leyton’s story was going to be sexy, spicy and filled with everything that makes an entertaining and unforgettable read. Nicole Edwards did NOT disappoint.
In Beautifully Loyal, we meet Leyton and get a glimpse of the life he came from before he joined the Adorite family and the Southern Boy Mafia. Abandoned by his mother and abused by his father, his friendship with Max Adorite took him on a path where he finds a life he wouldn’t change and a family he would do anything for.
Ashlynn Adorite is sister to Max Adorite and has grown up in the life of the mafia. She knows what it means to do whatever it takes for what you want and to protect yourself. She’s tough and sexy and lives with a ‘take no prisoners’ attitude. Being female, she’s often underestimated and uses that to her advantage.
For years, they’ve harbored feelings for each other but never acted on them; which leads to so much angst between them throughout the book. The catalyst for them is Jase… Ashlynn’s head of security and regular boy toy. His desires spark the flame that changes their lives.
Meanwhile, the mafia life gets in the way and Ashlynn is in danger. This amps up the suspense element in the novel which kept me on my toes. It was similar to a tennis match. To left is danger and to the right is smokin’ hot sex and vice versa. The steam level was top notch and worthy of a couple panty changes (so be sure to keep spare panties handy). The M/M, M/F, M/F/M, M/M/F scenes were WORTH. THE. WAIT!! Each providing all the passion and emotion that I could have asked for.
