Love Sick: Heartbreaker (Love Sick: The Mafia's First Love #1)
No food. No energy. No money.
F*ck my life. Nothing can get worse than this. I’m about to go out on that boxing ring to fight for that $200 in cold hard cash.
It should be easy. I’m primed for this. I’m trained for this. But I’m hungry. I have no food. I’m going to die. Then I see her. She stumbles into my path.
One look. One lick. One taste. That’s all I need to confirm she’s mine.
“A kiss, in exchange for saving your life.” That’s what he says to me after he steals my first kiss under the moonlight.
I’m trying to search for my freedom, escaping from my suffocating family, only to find him; Justin Valenti, the heart-throb idol of our college campus, dubbed Heartbreaker.
He’s hot. He’s dangerous. Like his name implies, he’s a heartbreaker. There’s no way I’m falling for a guy like him. But the more I know him, the more I realize he’s an honest and quintessential hardworking man.
As each day goes by, with the event that binds us together, I sink deeper and deeper into this condition which I can only name love sick.
When innocent Lily Loren escapes her suffocating family by going to college in Brooklyn, she encounters an incident with a brilliant but jaded fellow student whom everyone dubbed Heartbreaker. He is the type of man she wants to avoid. But one kiss from Heartbreaker has her questioning her belief of what is the true definition of freedom. Lily is scared to admit she wants Heartbreaker, but would her new found freedom be another suffocating cage for her if she chooses to enter a relationship with Heartbreaker?
Justin Valenti, dubbed The Heartbreaker, has his own demons to deal with. Beneath his cool façade, he is nothing but a conscientious, hard-working student, working to make ends meet. One look from Lily brings out his protective instinct, an innate side he never felt before with other girls. But how could he ever choose to be with her when his past, present, and future choose to torment him.
