Our Review

‘Our eyes locked. And in that thunderous split second, my life as I knew it changed course forever.’

It’s been a while since we read our last Cat Porter book but we were immediately drawn into her story through her vivid and descriptive prose. This Author certainly has a flair for the descriptive placing us right in the middle of her scenes. If Greece hadn’t already been on our bucket list it inevitably would’ve been after reading this book. Also, helloooo food porn! The Dagger in the Sea was a slow burn sexy romance set mostly in the lush surrounding of the Greek Islands where we got swept away in the Greek Mythology.

‘She was better than this. She was another world from this, my world.’

Turo DeMarco is heavily involved in the Chicago mafia courtesy of his estranged mobster dad. Growing up as the bastard son with a strong and seemingly emotionless mother and an absent father has caused a divide in his heart and mind, searching for his own space. An antihero who deals in violence and one night stands. All that’s about to change when he’s sent to Athens to make amends for a business deal gone awry on behalf of his Father.

‘A stillness took hold of me. A big chasm opened before me. A chasm I’d never wanted to see before, but had always been there. A loneliness I had created, nurtured.’

Adriana is a paparazzi darling, what with her famous family and living that rich socialite lifestyle. However, that’s not who she truly is and she’s waiting for that one person to really see her and break down her self-imposed walls in reaction to tragedy. Adorably sweet, down to earth and a passionate foodie, Adri is a wonderful heroine who is immediately intrigued and intensely attracted to the enigmatic Truro DeMarco. Theirs lives become intricately entwined as they have an intense few days in their own delicious bubble with violence and drama skirting the periphery.

‘For the first time in a long fucking time, I didn’t care about any of the things I had to be caring about. There was only now. There was only this beautiful island, this incredible house, this gorgeous girl.’

Drugs, guns, vendettas and murder amidst clear skies and a yacht on beautiful crystal blue waters. This story is quite the journey; encompassing the mafia elements we love. Be prepared to be swept away on a journey that’s as sweet as it is twisted and dramatic. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

“I will never forget you. You gave me something beautiful that I will always treasure no matter what…”


“The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen

But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.

I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.

Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games

Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls

I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
In my heart, on my hands.

Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I.
