5 Star Review: Second of All from The Downey Trilogy by @GenevieveDewey #ASMSG

Kikibanner

A #naughtycouch exclusive excerpt from Second of All by Genevieve Dewey 

She felt a fissure of awareness that made goose bumps on her skin and she somehow knew he had shifted his brooding gaze to her profile. She waited for him to say something, but the limo remained silent. She felt him shift ever so slightly towards her then the car began to slow.

 

“We’re here, Miss Downey,” Kevin said through the intercom.

 

“Thank you, Kevin,” Kiki answered, slipping her heels back on.

 

She glanced at James and saw he was frowning menacingly at his jacket across from him. It was both exciting and off-putting at the same time. Exactly who was he mad at? Her? Her family? Poor Kevin? Ugh, she was so tired of worrying about everyone else’s feelings. When Kevin opened the door she got out and marched into the lobby without waiting for James. She pretended like he didn’t exist as they rode in the elevator to their sensibly priced room (as sensible as one could get at a five-star luxury hotel – a hard-won victory on her part over his stubborn pride). She could tell he was still sending her intense almost predatory looks, but if he wasn’t going to communicate, why should she?

 

Kiki heard the hotel door thunk closed behind them and the snick of the security bolt as she walked forward started taking her heels off. She hadn’t made it but three steps in when James grabbed her arm and twirled her around. She looked into his eyes, startled, and gasped a little as he yanked her towards him, crushing his mouth to hers. She could taste the alcohol from his drinks on his lips and reflexively put her arms around him as he wrapped his arms around her, kissing her madly.

 

James hitched her up around his waist and pressed her up against the wall of the hotel room, one hand making its way under her dress and yanking her underpants down a bit. Her head felt sandwiched between the wall and his mouth, his tongue as demanding as his fingers on her pelvis. She dug her fingernails into his arms and wrapped her legs around him, trying to both get a better grip and a bit more freedom. Instead he pressed his torso even more against hers, and she could feel the gun from his holster against her side and the badge against his belt. He scooted her up a bit then dropped his grip on her waist, and undid his pants as her legs slowly listed down. She held onto his shoulders with her hands, and managed to gasp out between kisses,

 

“James!”

 

He ignored her and finished dropping his pants, then grabbed her legs back up around his waist. His mouth crushed against hers again, almost painfully in its possessiveness and his hands grabbed her hands and pressed them above her head against the wall…

Second of All-

 

I’m always afraid I’m going to give away too much in my reviews… and the last one I did; I was accused of being a book spoiler.

So…

I love the series so far. I just wrote the review for first in the series, First, I love you, and I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out Third Time’s the Charm

The author Genevieve Dewey takes you to the heart of Chicago, and deposits you in the middle of the Downey family. The Godfather meets Romance, that’s how I would describe this book. Each character is unique and quirky, and I feel it allowed the reader to step into one or more of the characters shoes, and walk their path.

I loved the way each person seemed to interact with the next, and before the series is complete; I’m sure we will see just how each and every character connects.

This series reminds me a lot of the movie Crash … Different couples, very different lives, and how through life events they cross paths, and find hope in the end. This book gives you hope, lets you dream, and surprises you often.

You won’t want to miss this series. This author is going places.

#Naughtyville Approved.

Title: First, I Love You

Author:  Genevieve Dewey

Genre: Contemporary Drama with romance subplot

Event organized by: Literati Literature Lovers

Purchase Link: Amazon/ Smashwords

 

First, I Love You

 

If Mario Puzo and Jane Austen crossed the time-space continuum and mated, “First, I Love You” would be their literary baby. Imagine being a detective with a mobster for a father, or a mobster with a straight arrow, good cop for a son. This is a relationship that is tricky on its best day. Add in some well-meaning meddling from a mob princess sister, an arrogant DEA agent, and gangsters running a human trafficking ring and you have a recipe for a book that refuses to follow the rules. Told from the perspective and point of view of each the six main characters this is the first novel in a trilogy about love, loyalty, revenge and redemption.

Omaha Detective Tommy Gates has kept his gangster father at arm’s length his whole life. Mickey Downey has spent the better part of the last two decades trying to find ways to get back the son he lost through Witness Protection. Now Tommy has taken an opportunity to work on a Federal Human Trafficking Joint Task Force in Chicago where his father lives. Tommy’s sister Kiki and his mother Mary see this as an opportunity to build a relationship between the two. Tommy’s new DEA partner James Hoffman sees it as an opportunity to gain leverage over Mickey Downey. Tommy’s other partner, FBI Agent Ginny Sommers wants to keep Tommy’s family as far from the case as possible. When Kiki and James join forces, sparks fly and it sets fire to a maelstrom of unexpected consequences for everyone involved.

One part The Godfather, two parts Emma and a dash of Casablanca mixed together, “First, I Love You” isn’t a detective novel, a gangster novel, a mystery, a romance or a family saga. It’s a little of all of the above.

Bad Penny’s thoughts on First, I Love You

 

Show me romance weaved into in-depth multi-layered twists and turns, and I will tell you that you have a hit on your hands.

Seriously, Genevieve Dewey has done it!

What took years and several attempts for the greats of the writing world, she accomplished in her very first book! She has taken a family known as the Downey’s and created rich, unique, some lovable, and some you love-to-hate characters.

I wanted to know what everyone was talking about… and OMG I now know. Godfather meets Romance with family values that are so hard-core, they force life changing decisions.

If you aren’t itching to read it yet, you need to check out Second of All. Between the two books, you can’t resist, and you’ll be salivating while you wait for the 3rd in the Downey Trilogy. I know I am…
