Book Release Blast for Misfire by Rachel Robinson (REVIEW)…….

 A woman with a painful past finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of danger, attracted to two brothers, in this gritty and emotionally raw tale set in the mafia world.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of Misfire by Rachel Robinson, along with getting my impressions of it, then add this steamy book teeming with temptations and complications to your bookshelf!

I never wanted to rule an empire. I was a housekeeper. A hooker. A wrecked woman with a past full of scars and secrets. A chance encounter with an Astor swept me into the hurricane of their glamorous, organized crime world. Then, I met the other Astor brother and nothing will ever be normal again.
One brother saved me, but under false pretenses.
One brother is madly in love with me, but it’s complicated.
I've fallen for both men for different reasons, but there’s only one way this can end—in messy, tragic destruction.
Everyone tells you playing with fire is dangerous, but they never said it would be this intoxicating.



Whew!  That was one heckuva steamy journey, one that put the characters and readers through the wringer, satisfying one moment before causing frustrations the next.  From the first page to the last this tale kept you on edge, torn between two very different brothers who had big effects on Destiny's future. This was an atmospheric tale with larger than life characters that left me feeling complete but wanting a bit more.

Destiny's a young woman with a compelling past and a name that's appropriate given how life has treated her thus far.  They say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger...and throughout this story Destiny proves that by the number of times she's gotten up after being knocked down.  When readers first see her she's working as a housekeeper and hooker, living a life where her past and future are blending together. When a case of mistaken identity leads Destiny to the two Astor brothers, life changes irrevocably in connections that have profound effects on her.

Riley and Jesse Astor are two very different men who affect Destiny very differently, with one of them her savior and the other pushing her to the top.  They're both delicious and drool-worthy heroes though, heroes not clearly defined but heroes who leave a strong mark on the heroine. Riley's more of the good guy while Jesse's more dark and dangerous, bringing their interesting dichotomy to sizzling scenes with Destiny.  They're two tempting sides to the same coin, two men who captivated me, grabbing my attention and not letting go!

On a whole this was an intriguing story with unforgettable characters!  The storyline is steamy while pushing many of my emotional buttons.  Set in the world of the mafia Ms. Robinson has put a unique spin on the popular genre and is a book I definitely recommend!

My rating for this is an A-

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Rachel Robinson grew up in a small, quiet town full of loud talkers. Her words were always only loud on paper. She has been writing stories and creating characters for as long as she can remember. CRAZY GOOD and SET IN STONE, and TIME AND SPACE, three of her Navy SEAL novels are INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERS. After living in San Diego, Virginia Beach, and then Fairfax, VA, she now resides in colorful Colorado with her badass husband, two children, her Sphynx cat, & her dog, Polly.
