Kit Rocha promised a slow burn with Maricela and Ivan, and boy did they deliver. The yearning and angst juxtaposed with the innocent erotica of shared glances and slight touches was page flipping fuel for me.
Gideon, the living prophet of Sector One's religion, has placed his youngest sister under the protection of arguably the most serious of his Riders. Where family connections are of supreme importance, Ivan has a history of sinners and a literal saint weighing on his mind. Familial obligations weigh heavy on Maricela. Her older sister reminds her almost daily of the responsibility and duty to the Rios legacy to make a smart marriage choice.
Ivan and Maricela's love story is set in the post apocalyptic world you should be familiar with by now (and if you aren't start with Beyond Shame or even Ashwin and catch up, wtf, have you read my blog before?), but the dawn of a new day in the sectors promises the possibility of previously impossible love matches. BRING THEM ON KIT ROCHA!
