    Ryan’s Bed by Tijan

    “You can’t battle someone who’s lost everything.” Resume: Mackenzie crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident. She barely knew him. She thought it was his sister’s bed—her room.

    Reading again: Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles series

    Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles series was one of those series that took me as BAM. I wasn’t expecting to like it so much. Maybe because the author made the characters loyal to themselves and continue having a dark side despite the romance going on. After re-reading, I can now find flaws.
