Book 2 of Switchblade Romance by Jayne Lockwood/Lady Jaguar.
Wow! That’s the word for it. I’ve never thought I’d fall in love with two characters the way I am with Richard and Tino. I’d love them for myself. Going Down tells their story after Richard’s scorching hot relationship with Pagan in Closer than Blood.
Richard needs a PA since his former one has to step out for a while due to family problems, and it was then he meets Tino on a very sexy and fun elevator ride late in the evening. They get stuck together, and sexy things happen between them. Beginning next week, Tino discovers he’s Richard’s new PA, and from there their torrid relationship starts.
Lockwood built their characters to perfection, so distinct from one another. Richard is troubled and abrasive, since his past and gangster side always come to haunt him. He needs to balance his life in two worlds, between the Big Bad Wolf Mafia guy and the respectful corporate CEO of Wolfen. He has no talent for communication, and he sees the world in black and white, but he also has a softer side, the one who craves for love and compassion in the middle of all his chaotic self.
Valentino, Tino, is a sweet Italian man who has a kink for Louboutin shoes (and if he looks as good in those heels as I pictured him in my mind, I understand now why Richard fell so in love with him). He was raised with all the love and support a genuine family is supposed to give and teach. He’s down to earth and knows his worth. Tino might fool the world to think of him as a needy, delicate man, but it couldn’t be more wrong. He’s intelligent, caring and a force to reckon with who doesn’t take crap from anyone.
Their love is wild, naughty, messy and delicious and keeps you turning the pages. They dodge all the crap life situations and people throw at them and come victorious in the end. Jayne became one of my favorite authors and I can’t recommend her enough. If you like Dark Mafia Romance and didn’t read the Switchblade series, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Go! 🔥❤️🔥🔥
