Forbidden Love by Michelle Grogan

Jessica Alvarez knew her father's business was more than import/export, she just didn't  know how much more. At nineteen she decided she'd had enough of being pampered and guarded all the time. She wanted to live life and enjoy the world. Her father however, was less than thrilled with the idea. First thing on her to-do list was to find a job. She answered an ad for a personal assistant. Little did she know that job would change her life so drastically and so quickly.  Jake Rousseau was tops in the security field. It didn't hurt that he was handsome and ripped too.  Following the orders of his boss was what Jake did.  Only this time it leads to a place he never thought he'd find again.  Can he make this trip and remain whole?

A Romeo and Juliet of the organized crime world best describes this book.  It's extremely well written and action packed.  I loved the idea of a crime bosses daughter telling him she wasn't gonna be ruled by his world and his rules any longer.  There is passion, mystery and a true love story contained in this book and well worth the read.  You'll be doing yourself a favor by buying this book for your collection. Michelle Grogan is a fantastic writer and storyteller.

The only thing I found a problem with was the ending. I felt it was kind of weak considering all the action, romance and passion in the story.  

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because I'm a sucker for Romeo and Juliet type stories.
