Description

In the explosive debut of Stacey Lynn’s irresistible Fireside series, a pair of estranged lovers are reunited by dangerous loyalties—and intoxicating desire.

Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one of her father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.

Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.

    When Tyson Blackwell is told by his boss, senior agent of the FBI Underground Crime Protection Unit to get close to Gabriella Galecki, he is reluctant. He has a past with her. She is the only women he loved and he doesn’t know if he can keep this job professional as opposed to personal. When Gabriella decided to return home to visit her dying mother, the last thing she expected was to run into Tyson. Even though she loved him, 10 years ago she just suddenly disappeared from his life. The dialogue flowed easily so it was a quick read. Story line was well written and did not drag. Tyson was confident, sure of himself without being arrogant or cocky. Gabriella, however, seemed torn. I think she wanted to be this strong independent woman but when she got around her father, she became very passive. You could feel the emotions between these two. The love Tyson had for Gabriella and her feelings of betrayal when she finds out he was FBI. I would have liked to hear more about things from Tyson’s POV. Other than the beginning you only get things from Gabriell’s POV. The only issue I had was there were many typos. I am usually tolerant of them but when I find myself having to read sentences over again, then it becomes distracting. I like how in the end the author gives you a look into what the next story might be. I look forward to stories of the other characters (Delan, Aiden, Chelsea). While there are sex scenes, they are not overly descriptive or drawn out so I would consider it a fairly clean book. It has no cliffhanger.

    I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review. Stacey Lynn is a new author for me, so I didn't know exactly what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed Blue and Tyson's story and can't wait to read Chelsea's! This novel is in the Fireside series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read any of her other novels and did not feel as though I missed any "back story". Blue is the furthest thing from what I envisioned as a Mafia princess/heir and I loved her character for that. She was strong, sassy, and wanted to make it on her own--not use her name to get special favors. Tyson, her high school boyfriend, comes into her life again unexpectedly. He's working a case that has the possibility of destroying their second chance at love. So as not to spoil the story, I'll just say this story has a HEA! It has suspense, funny moments, moments where I cried all rolled into one story. While I truly enjoyed this novel, I thought it was a little slow in the middle. I wanted the action to happen so Blue could have her HEA. I do recommend this novel for anyone who enjoys second chance love stories.

    His to Love by Stacey Lynn is a beautifully written second chance romance full of heartbreak, lies and ultimately forgiveness. Tyson is a hot alpha FBI agent and Gabriella is a beautiful Mafia Princess who met in high school and fell in love and then lies kept them apart for 10 years and now will more lies keep them apart or will their love heal the hurt and bring them together. This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it. I love this author and can’t wait for the next book! I received and ARC of this book from NetGalley.

    This was the first time reading a book by author. It was a happy introduction. I loved her writing! Tyson Blackwell, the male leading character, is a FBI agent on special assignment in his hometown of Detroit, He wants to shut down a crime family, the Galecki family, responsible for killing his father and reconnect with the only woman he has ever loved. The problem is she and the family are connected. Her name is Gabriella Blue Galecki and her father is an evil man. Will they be able to have a second chance at love and romance? They were high school sweethearts and she disappeared one night after graduation and has been missing for ten years. She was told, by her father, a reason she had to be hidden. She left in the cloak of darkness and Tyson searched for her for years. He began to give up hope that she was alive until her picture was in a case file staring at him. It made the love in his heart, anger and feings of betrayal burn bright. He wants answers! She wants to pretend they never happened and nurse her still broken heart. Gabriella has to return home to see her terminally ill mother. She has a chance or maybe not so chance meeting with Tyson on her flight home. He literally knocks her off of her feet. His to Love is a journey of two people trying to find a way to trust and forgive each other and themselves. Can they move beyond betrayal and their love be enough. I am excited to read His to Protect, the second book in the series.

    If you enjoy books filled with intrigue, suspense, complex characters, and romance, then you will definitely want to read this book. It’s the first book in the Fireside series by Ms Lynn . Tyson and Gabriella “Blue” , were sweethearts when they were 18. He was the son of a policeman, she, a Mafia princess , and daughter of a very dangerous man. Gabriella’s father managed tear them apart . Now , 10 years after, they reunite. Gabriella is summoned home due to a family situation and Tyson, has been assigned by his superiors, to get close to her and find out why she is returning home. Needless to say, a lot of secrets are kept until it all blows up. It was a great story and I can’t wait to read the next book by this talented author.

    Stacey did it again!! What a beautiful well thought out story. I enjoyed the plot, characters and the chemistry. This book will definitely have you turning the pages. Tyson is sexy as hell, he's torn between his job and the only women he as ever loved. Can he do his job and love Gabriella at the same time? Or will he finally lose her for good this time? Gabriella is sassy and knows what she wants and she has her sights set on the man she walked away from 10 years ago, the only man she has ever loved. Will she be able to forgive Tyson for all the lies and secrets? Or will she walk away for good this time? You don't want to pass this book up! It's told in the POV of both main characters. This is part of a series but this book can be read as a standalone. And it's sexy as hell!!!
