Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best seller Claire Contreras comes a new, sexy stand-alone Mafia romance novel....

He promised to protect me. Now it's him I need protection from.

Roselyn Vega

When my ex-boyfriend’s brother waltzed into the nightclub where I was bartending, looking like he'd just stepped out of the pages of GQ magazine: Wall Street Edition, it felt like fate. Later, when he breaks into my apartment in the middle of the night, demanding to know how I got the bruises around my neck and promising to protect me, it feels a little too much the way things used to. I remind myself that I escaped that life and I'm not the person he once knew, but deep down, I want his help. In the end, Dominic De Luca always get what he wants, so I pack my bag and leave with him. Now, I'm under his protection, but who's going to protect me from him?

Dominic De Luca

Normally, I would never go after my brother’s ex, but the way I see it, Rosie was mine before he took her from me 10 years ago. We haven’t seen each other since, and many things have changed during that time. I've changed, and my circumstances have changed, but my confounding, obnoxious crush on Rosie? Yeah, that's still the same. It’s not why when I see that she needs my help, I step in to protect her, but it’s definitely why when she’s staying at my place. Soon, it becomes hard for either one of us to ignore this attraction. I have too much going on to let my guard down now, but having her around really clouds my judgment, but I can’t seem to stop thinking about having her in my bed. She’s the only thing I haven’t conquered, and I fully intend to before she walks out of my life again.

Because I Want You is a complete stand-alone novel set in the same world as Because You're Mine and Because I Need You.

  • Alpha hero
  • TW (Please see author's note at the beginning of the book.)
