In a series debut for fans of Tracy Wolff and Sylvia Day, New York Times bestselling author Missy Johnson asks a burning question: What happens when love is undeniable—and taboo?
Pietro Gustovi is loyal, polished, and hard as stone, the kind of guy women want and men respect. At twenty-three, he’s survived tragedies that would break men twice his age. And he owes it all to his father’s closest friend, Giovanni Spontagio, who took him in as an orphaned teenager. Pietro would give his life for Giovanni . . . but his heart belongs to Giovanni’s daughter.
Raised in Chicago under the spotlight of power and privilege, Lucy Spontiago feels most alive on stage. Determined to become a prima ballerina, she escapes her father’s protective gaze long enough to audition for the ballet in New York City. Soon, however, Lucy realizes that she is not alone. Pietro is watching her back. And though he’s like a brother to her, Lucy cannot deny the thrill she feels knowing his eyes are on her.
Pietro could never betray his mentor by sleeping with his only child. But Lucy follows her passions, no matter how forbidden. Soon their nights are consumed by explosive, red-hot temptation—a dance that will expose shocking secrets and burn everything else to the ground.
I was given the opportunity of forward reading a copy of Code Of Honor, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, the flow was great, the characters were well represented and Missy did a great job of letting the characters personalities shine.
Although in my opinion it was a bit slow to start, there were some great pieces represented in there, which kept you turning the pages, and as for the Mafia side to the story although it was small in book one, can now be built on for the future episodes .
Peitro & Lucy were an inevitable tangle that of course proved to be an exciting read, their sexual tension made for great reading, and I am looking forward to reading more from them.
Although I hate cliff hangers with a vengeance, I guess this was simply inevitable as there are further episodes coming.
Well done Missy another riveting series from you.
