REVIEW|Can't Walk Away by Ashlee Taylor

Christiana Thomas' life was boring. When her sister Alexandra convinces her that it's time to live a little, she embarks on a night out but manages to retain no memory of the event. She contents herself, however, with her new career as a writer- something she's always wanted to do. During an event held for her father, she comes face to face with a man she thought had only been a dream. Nicholas Prescotti, too, had been haunted by that night and this woman he's only seen in flashes that he doesn't deliver are real. It took one moment for Nicholas to see Christianna before the memories of that mysterious night come flooding back. As they find in each other something they never could have anticipated, their lives are overshadowed by the danger that threatens them both. When Christianna learns of the truths and dangers, she will leave Nicholas or will she discover that she can't walk away.

I can say without a doubt, that this is one of my favorite stories! I had never read anything involving the mafia and it was refreshing. I loved all the characters and thought it was fairly easy to figure out who the violin was, there was also some twists that went along with it that I didn't see coming.
The only thing I thought could be better, is less repetitiveness when switching from Christianna and Nicholas. It was a little rough reading the transition of their POV, which is really the only thing I disliked about the entire book. 
Ashlee Taylor has always loved to read. She was practically born with a book in hand. She even wrote short stories and vignettes for fun at age eleven. As she grew up reading was put to the side but the book Fifty Shades of Grey brought back the love of the written word. Swallowing every book she could get her hands on while befriending authors. Eventually becoming a beta reader and helping authors work out critical scenes and poor progressions. Through this process, Ashlee decided to writ the stories in her head.
