The last time I saw Maddox “Mad Dog” Santos was the day my cartel boss father had his favorite thug beat him into submission for daring to touch me. That was more than a decade ago. Now he’s back from the military, dark and damaged and sexier than he has any right to be, doing tattoos for the local criminal underground. We could have a second chance, but I know I should stay away, for his sake, and my own sanity.
Except I have this habit of wanting to get close to men I shouldn’t. Men like Mad Dog Santos. And men like Leo Reyes.
Leo is just my bodyguard, but when he steps in front of a bullet to save my life, everything changes. Mad Dog comes to our rescue, and when the two of them are together, I see the way Mad Dog looks at Leo. It’s the same way they both look at me.
My proposal is simple: Leo can have me however he wants, but he has to submit to Mad Dog first. Admitting these dark desires to each other just as dangerous as the criminal business we're in, but I need to close this little love triangle before it kills us.
Ophelia Bell is an author i’ve been wanting to read for a while now,and Mad Dog sounded intriguing. So,when she offered a copy in return for an honest review,i didn’t have to think twice…. And now that i’ve finished Mad Dog,i can say for sure i’m going to read the others in this series,because it’s hot! Maddox “Mad Dog” has come a long way from the boy that was beaten up by the thug Gustavo working for Celeste’s father Arturo. Fooling around with his young and innocent daughter was not something the man appreciated…. It didn’t stop him from loving her,but he’s kept his distance ever since he was discharged honorably from the Navy,and returned home. Leo,one of her bodyguards,now that’s a different story. He’s been a regular in his tattoo shop from the moment he started out,and a torturous temptation every time he requests new ink to be done. Knowing he’s working for Arturo makes him off-limits,but they have become very close friends. But when Leo confesses to him he’s in love with Celeste…. Mad Dog knows he could only dream of having one,let alone two. But life has a way of taking turns you don’t expect,and even if tragedy can’t be avoided,it does open up options…. Because after Mad Dog practically pushes Celeste to Leo,she’s not about to let him slip away. She knows he loves her ánd Leo….and the way Leo looks at Mad Dog gives her a reason to hope. With betrayal and death all around,the three need all the beauty they can find,that’s for sure! This was a rollercoaster ride that drew me in from the first page. And it didn’t let go until the very last. A story that makes me want to hear more….
