Attraction by Kelly Fox (Mobsters and Billionaires Book 3)

A gentleman mobster and his fashionable crush get their chance at love in Attraction. Luca has been waiting for his chance with Ford, and finally gets to woo the financial genius who doesn't mind Luca's dangerous lifestyle. Ford is the sweetly innocent billionaire that captures the mafia don's heart.

From the Blurb:

I run a high-end escort service. And I'm in love with a virgin. It doesn't make any sense, this attraction between us. I'm a violent Mafia Don, and Ford is a nervous, perfectly bow-tied, sexily bespectacled
money nerd.

But he's had my heart the first night I laid eyes on him, and while he keeps me at arm's length, he's never left my orbit. He's as bound to me as I am to him.

Hell, I'm becoming a better man because of him.

I'll be as patient as I need to be to win him over. The one thing I'm not willing to do, however, is let the man who put the fear in his eyes get away with it.

I don't care how powerful or wealthy he is—I will tear down the world to make Ford feel safe enough to love me.

Heather's Review:

I decided to treat myself to a luxurious Sunday afternoon bath - lock the door and get a start on Attraction - well the water got cold, I got pruny and I finished the book in one session because I just couldn't put it down... I'd just finished the epilogue when my husband knocked on the bathroom door to make sure I hadn't drowned.

First off, Attraction is really best read in order as we've been teased with Luca and Ford's story since near the beginning of the series and we finally get to see what lies behind Ford's reluctance and Luca's near obsession... As with the previous stories in this series, the story balances triggering events with a genuine love story and some sweet grand gestures and a few not so savoury ones... but the way that Fox brings you into their world and immerses you in the story just stops time.

Rating; 5 Stars

SNik's Review:

Third in series (Mobsters + Billionaires), best if read in order due to the continuing cast of characters. POC representation. Hurt/comfort. Slow burn. Dual POV. 

Gentleman mobster Luca has been interested in financial genius Ford for a while, and finally Ford is slowly letting him into his life. The wooing is strong and Luca is invested in being with Ford as he is attracted to Ford’s intelligence, style, loyalty and kindness. 

Ford cannot deny his attraction to Luca, the man’s dangerous activities, his commitment to protecting people, his generous and affectionate nature are everything Ford is looking for in a partner. 

The relationship builds slowly and sweetly allowing a lot of honest communication, actually having trust and emotions to grow in a romantic way. There is some past history that has to be dealt with, but I do wish there had been more background on Ford and Luca, not just their past negative experiences. 

Some action with a fun and supportive secondary cast of characters made this an entertaining read. As always with a Kelly Fox book, Attraction is a romantic well written story with irresistible characters and steamy interactions.
