From the moment Danny Black met Rose Cassidy, he knew she’d be the death of him. But their electric connection and twisted love gave him a purpose beyond ruling Miami with his iron fist. Faking his own death and disappearing to St. Lucia was the only way he could escape the deadly underworld that brought them together. But his seclusion was sabotaged when a notorious assassin lured him out and made him an offer he couldn’t ignore.

So Danny was forced to decide whether to remain concealed and pray his enemies didn’t find him, or re-emerge and take back control of his town. His future.

James Kelly’s sole purpose was to find and kill the man who ordered the death of his family. Peace would never be his until then. Beau Hayley, a scarred former cop, was the key to his mission. He was supposed to kill her. Instead, he fell in love with her. Forced to accept that he could no longer fight his war and keep Beau safe from their enemies, he sought out the only man who could help him.

But by resurrecting the infamous Brit, James unwittingly started an even bigger war.

Two lethal men. One shared goal.

Keep their women safe.

And survive.

But only one of them can come out the other side alive.

Rose + Danny
Beau + James

We've read both their stories in The Brit and The Enigma.
And now Danny and James have to work together to finally get rid of The Bear - Miami's super-villain-mafia-boss - the guy who had their families 
killed and wants to kill them too.
That means leaving their safe island haven to go back to Miami to fight for a peaceful future.
The ladies are not really on board with that super-dangerous plan... but they'll follow their boys to hell and back.



PHEW! πŸ”₯

That was ... something.
I loved reading it. I loved seeing our darlings again. But it was also so very sad and heartbreaking and dark and hopeless. But of course we also hope all through the book that we'll all end up happily on our island again in the end.
Who knows... I'm not telling you.😎

The other two books were very dark and murdery already, but I had the feeling that there were a tiny bit too many torture and bloody moments this time. I don't like mafia books in general - if I read one, I need to really love the bad criminal guy to love the story. And I do love our two guys so much - but they were a tiny bit too sociopathic-happily-tortury for my tastes this time.
But still - I loved reading it. It was exciting, dangerous, suspensy, mysterious and of course also adorable and funny and super sexy!

This is a really great dark romantic series!

I really need a Miami/St. Lucia-based TV show now please!

Tiny little rant - as always when a British author writes American characters - it's one of my book weirdnesses. Jodi is British. Our heroes are British. All perfectly fine. BUT... our heroines are not British. So I would've wished for an American editor to fix all of the girls' British words and expressions - and there are a lot! Especially the ALRIGHT or OKAY question that an American would never ask without an are you or just a you. But don't worry, I'm the only one bothered by that!

Some of you might want to know if there will be a happy end this time... and I can't tell you that - it would totally ruin your reading pleasure. But ... no. Ugh. But... Hm.
Maybe I could say that we haven't heard the last from this world?!? Was that too spoilery already? Or I could say what my face looked like after reading the last page? → 😱

THE RESURRECTION was a perfect + suspensy + sexy + exciting + heartbreaking addition to this great dark romantic series! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Danny + James - these two are MINE!
