The Valentini Family – The Revelation Duet

I friend zoned Hunter Lachlan because I thought he could never give me what I needed.
After a decade of pushing him away, I don’t recognize Las Vegas’s new Don.
Maybe my childhood best friend knew me better than I ever realized…
And maybe, just maybe, he’s the one man for whom I’ll kneel.

The Consigliere (The Valentini Family #3 – The Revelation Duet)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Attending her brother’s wedding is one of the last things that Aurora wants to be doing, not least because she doesn’t like his bride or because she is wearing a dress two sizes too small for her. This would be bad enough if it weren’t for her lifelong best friend Hunter making an appearance. Although they are friends they haven’t seen each other or spoken in person for 15 years. Conversing only via email and text after an incident that forced Rory to push him away and build walls between them. As he makes his way over she notices a ring on his hand, one that she recognises from a different persona… D aka DDoSunlight, her online Dom!

Rewinding the years you track their friendship, Hunter’s love for Rory and how he has been there for her through some rough times. Determined to move out of the friend zone he seeks out information on pain kinks and trains to be a dom. Finding a sub to train with he is upfront with Sunny that he is in love with someone else, but they continue their partnership with boundaries (masks etc) before he calls time on things to pursue Rory.

Worlds collide and Rory feels humiliated that D is in fact, Hunter. But he soon shows her that they can be one and the same person. Whilst they attempt to discover if this works off the screen and in real life there is a territory war in Las Vegas. His grandfather recently incarnated requests to meet with Rory but what does he want?

The Oracle (The Valentini Family #4 – The Revelation Duet)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Leaving the prison Aurora is keen to get back to see Hunter after she suspects that it was his grandfather who was the prisoner down. Those thoughts are confirmed as she has a gun pressed to her back whilst looking at a video of her brother, Stan, that has been sent across. Managing to get away she finds her guards and heads to see Hunter and give him the sad news. Torn between Hunter’s grief and the need to find her brother whose plan was hijacked at the airport, Rory needs to stay strong and find a solution.

Hunter can’t believe that his grandfather is dead, and he is now certainly the head of the Camorra. Needing to compartmentalise everything that is happening he arranges to marry Aurora in secret just as his grandfather wanted and will wait to tell the Camorra and her family that she is his wife, plus will be acting as his consigliere too. Coordinating an attack takes the help of an unlikely friend to bring Stan back relatively unharmed and to see Aurora come into her own when giving orders to the guards.

Attending functions together it is obvious to the outside world that something is going on between the pair, but they refuse to acknowledge the rumours. Aurora fails to find ways to be friendly with Luciu’s wife Jennifer, but she is now family and needs to push aside any disdain for her. Feeling as though they can never catch a break there is one problem after another but as long as they are together, they can face anything – right?

Available to buy from Amazon in Paperback, Hardback and Kindle Edition.
