Deeply In Love With the Illest

Deeply In Love With the Illest Deeply In Love With the Illest
by Shvonne Latrice


SynopsisHalo Stevenson is a twenty-seven-year-old career woman who thinks she knows it all and has it all together. Having semi-escaped from a tumultuous and abusive relationship, Halo is only focused on her newfound future. Yet, what she seems to be forgetting is although her ex is seemingly out of the picture, being the powerful man he is, his presence is always lurking and he's always in control. Unfortunately, the beauty has gotten way too comfortable in her new life, going so far as to completely let her guard down upon meeting the intimidatingly sexy Ilias Hayes. He's tall, handsome, a true alpha, and makes Halo experience things she never even knew she was capable of feeling.

Ilias Hayes, born and raised in the hood of Los Angeles, got it out the mud the only way he knew how; pushing weight. When his profession of choice landed him behind bars, he swore to leave it all behind once he was able to freely roam God's green earth again. Not only did his outlook on ways to get bread change, but the one involving his personal life was altered as well. No longer interested in the player lifestyle he once lived, Ilias is ready to settle down with the right woman. That woman soon becomes Halo Stevenson right from the moment he laid eyes on her. What Ilias doesn't know is that the sweet and innocent Halo comes with plenty of heavy baggage; baggage so heavy that he could've never seen it coming.



Book Review - The love story between Halo and Ilias included betrayal, greed, and a bit of lust.  Before they could get off the ground, outside forces came into play and tried to destroy it. The story moved quickly and had a few interesting characters like Silver, Damien, and Alexis. 
I didn't feel any connection between the primary couple, although I liked Ilias and his straight shooter delivery. The story was well structured, moderately paced, and developed from a character and plot perspective. While this was not my favorite story by this talented creative, it may be for you.  You can get your copy by clicking the image below and supporting the author by leaving a review.
