REVIEW: Covert (Chicago Angels #1) By, G.K. Moore

Alessandro is the unwilling heir of a Chicago crime family. Intent on leaving the life set out for him, he decides to run as fast and as far away as possible. His plans crumble when one girl crash lands in his life. He should hate the daughter of his father’s mistress, but it’s near impossible when he finds that they are alike in more ways than one.

Olivia grew up watching men walk in and out of her mother’s life. When one man finally decides to stay, she learns that crime lords don’t leave until someone’s dead. Olivia’s salvation comes from the person she least expects: his son.

Six years later, Olivia and Alessandro are reunited when her life is threatened. If time has proven one thing, it’s that repeating their parents’ mistakes seems inevitable.

In a world where friendship is a luxury and love a death sentence, two unlikely lovers find each other only to be separated by their cruel reality.

“I closed my eyes and relished his embrace, knowing I would have to pull back at any moment. Then, he said the words that were my undoing. “I missed you, love.”

When Alessandro’s father moves in his mistress and her daughter he should hate her. When he meets Olivia for the first time he found someone who might be lonelier than he is. Alessandro befriends the little girl the few short moments when he is home. When one summer he comes home and everything has changed. Olivia is no longer a friend, she is someone he is falling in love with more and more every day.

“What do you say to the women that haunts your dreams and stars in your worst nightmares?”

Olivia has watched her mother bring home different men for months at a time but this new one might be the cruelest of them all. When they move into his home she finds a friend in a boy that is rarely ever home. When her feelings turn from friendly to more they take that chance together. Olivia and Alessandro plan to run away from his mafia family until one day he makes her leave. He puts her on a bus to Miami and never looks back.

“Everything I’d done, I’d done for her.”

I absolutely loved the way this story was written. We get both Alessandro and Olivia’s POVs and we also get flashbacks. We get to see what each of them actually went through. The flashbacks start from when Olivia moved in to the day Alessandro sent her to Miami. The current timeline opens with a bang almost literally. Olivia has just killed a man and now she has to call the one person she promised she would never call again, Alessandro.

"I`ll say I love you, only because the words to describe what I feel for you have not been created.

Olivia’s character isn’t one of my favorites. She wasn’t very smart about the situation she was in. I understand her not being able to be a prisoner in a house she never wanted to go back to. But when her life is in danger it’s a little stupid to run away. Alessandro was pretty great. Every breath he takes, and everything he does in his life has been for Olivia. He has never given up hope that they would be together in the end. He was sweet and caring to Olivia.

“Seeing him again only proved that it didn’t matter how far apart we were, or that he had a girlfriend that he would never leave. I was in love with him. It was a broken, reckless, stupid love, but it was also an all-consuming, soul-scorching, passionate love. He was buried deep in every cell of my body and, as long as he lingered there, there would be no space left for anyone else.”

The flow to this book was just incredible. The way everything tied together and the things we have left to figure out. G.K. Moore really created a story that sucks you in. That cliffhanger was just cruel though. I finished this book in one sitting and now I don’t know what to do with myself. I really need this next book.
