Review + Giveaway: Illicit Desire by Taylor Michaels


Raphael is everything I should run away from…

Cora Milan came to Miami to get a fresh start, away from the memories and stigma that followed her and her brother at home. When she’s mugged, Raphael Ortiz rescues her. He’s sexy, successful, and dangerous—Miami’s most eligible bachelor and it’s most elusive. A cartel lord who lives on the wrong side of the law, with only a veneer of respectability. He is the exact opposite of a clean slate, and he makes no apologies for wanting her.

When Raphael forces his way into her life, Cora knows she should run. But the attraction between them is undeniable, and Raphael is a man accustomed to getting what he wants. The more she loses herself in him, the deeper she is drawn into Raphael’s criminal world.

But when her past, and his present collide, both of them will be left grasping for the only thing that can save them from the darkness around them—each other.

Raphael..this story should be read for him alone and all his sexiness that surrounds him. Raphael Oritz is a successful CEO of his company and very dangerous.  He is the Miami's most eligible bachelor along with being a cartel lord. Raphael is a very dominate male, who radiates power. Raphael sees Cora Milan getting mugged and comes to rescue.  It is an insta-love-connection for Raphael and he was intrigued with her before the mugging took place.  Cora is captivated with Raphael almost immediately.  Cora has some reserves about him but the deep intensity that connects them is hard to fight. After dealing with a past that has wrecked her, it's not easy to open up to anyone than her step-brother, Paul.  Paul has been Cora's stability to get her through a horrible past that she is running from.

Sometimes, I can't stand an insta-love-connection but the authors pulled me in with the fantastic cast of characters and the exciting plot! I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read and would definitely recommend it! Steamy scenes, heartache, drama, and passion.  Illicit Desire has it ALL...and left you wanting more. This book leaves you with a cliffhanger and I am anxiously awaiting the second book which will come out in 2015! ugh! I need it now!
