Well now …. This story just sucked me in and kept me reading way past my bedtime! LOL

I didn’t go into this book with too many expectations since it’s my first read b the author but I gotta say, if I did expect something, she totally would have met them.

There’s a lot of players in this story but not enough to confuse you as a reader. Just enough to keep you paying attention. The chemistry between Dom and Emilia was sizzling from the beginning and it just burned brighter as the story progressed.

„Love Over Logic” is one of those books that captivates the reader and keeps the attention. I loved every page and every aspect of it.

Emilia and Dom are great characters, well built and with a strong past. Each has a story, but Emilia’s is in te center of attention, and her connections to the mafia. This entire aspect is well built and has a lot of details that makes it even more interesting. We see her stronger than ever and with her mind set on revenge. Any strong woman needs a man by her side

Beautiful romance! Emilia and Dom were layered characters with complicated pasts. I love that this was sort of a second chance romance as they had such an interesting history together.

Emilia is a headstrong lawyer seeking revenge on her cousin's husband. I loved how determined she was even in the face of danger. She was a hard worker, snarky, funny and tried to do what was best for her family. Emilia was an awesome female protagonist. There were definitely times she pissed me off with her stupi

Love Over Logic is the first book that I've read by Diana A. Hicks, and it came out of the gates with a bang, and the excitement never slowed down for even a second. See, Emilia Prado has been dealing with the cartel since they killed her father, forcing her and her mother in hiding, but now that's she's grown up, she's done with the hiding. She's decided that she's going to get her revenge once & for all. Things go sideways when she runs into the man, Dom Moretti, she had a crush on in law ...more

Long story short:

The book was fun! and sexy, yes, but mostly fun because of the characters. So I gave it a 3.2/5 stars.

Short strory long:

First, let’s talk about the story. It was written in fast pace, I truly felt like riding a motorbike in a highway, but I didn’t think that the fast pace was bad. Instead it kept me engaging with the book, it kept me from boredom. Although as in every fast-pace story, I’d like it more if some scenes were more slowly written. As in the moment Dom and Emilia met a

Enjoyable, suspenseful and sexy!

"There's a vibrator under your pillow with my name on it. You betcha my ego is loving this."

Emilia Prado has been working towards one thing - revenge. When opportunity knocks, she's full steam ahead. However, she never counted on her old college crush to be thrown into the mix. Or, the intense chemistry between them. Her attraction to him was fierce, but she couldn't afford to let her guard down.

"I want you. And I refuse to give you up again."

Love Over Logic has a way of just feeding you snippets at a time and keeping you begging for more with each page. Dom and Emilia's story will hold you tight and not let go. Emilia has been on the run for the last ten years, she wants to be free. An old college crush comes in and offers her all she's ever wanted, him and freedom. Freedom isn't as easy as Dom and Emilia think it will be. Dom is hiding from his past, his past catches up with him and puts not only him but the woman he's lov

I fell in absolute love and lust with Love Over Logic! It was an absolute thrill to read this. One of the most profound and steamy romances I have read in a while. The characters really popped for me. I liked them a lot and their chemistry toward each other was through the roof and the plot thickened beautifully and the story was just flawless. I was not only impressed with it but it was easy to get lost in the book. I forgot where I was and just immersed myself

I'm going to preface this review by saying that I enjoyed the story, but there were a couple of niggles for me. The first is that there were parts of the story where I felt like I was missing something - almost as if there were elements that were covered in an earlier book.  The second is the on and off again relationship between Emilia and Dom.  It was a layer of frustration to the story that I suspect that was intended, but nevertheless almost became too much.

Those points aside, the relationsh

For the past ten years Emilia has been trying to live under the radar and not attract the attention of the people that murdered her father until she is unable to ignore a plea from a family member. Now hiding is no longer her game plan, vengeance is.

Dom is a lawyer with a dark past. When Emilia, his college crush, approaches him for help he is unable to say no and is determined to keep her protect her but can he protect her from his past as well?

In many ways this is a classic hero tries to sacrifice himself for the woman he loves, while she has to make it clear to him that they are stronger together type of story. Both Emilia and Dom have a past and while he tries to play the gallant hero for her, she knows that it will only really work if he is with her.

There is a lot of action in this story, with both Dom's past and Emilia's coming together to cause them problems and threaten their happiness. I did get a tiny bit lost once or twice, w

Love over logic was an interesting storyline with plenty of drama, angst and romance throughout the story. I found that there was suspense throughout the story with a mafia theme as well. This was. A really good combination as it made the story that much more interesting. The story had a strong heroine that was bent on revenge Emilia and an alpha male for a hero. This was an enjoyable story that keeps me entertained throughout the story.

A sophisticated thriller, not to be missed! I love a good organized crime tale...this one hit the mark, and then some! Hicks’s hero and heroine come into the story with a lot of heart and soul, creating fireworks when they’re brought together. I was drawn in from the start and couldn’t put it down!

I can’t tell you how much I loved this book! It had plenty of drama and a great story. It kept me guessing what would happen next. The cast of characters was really great, even the secondary ones stood out to me. Love Over Logic was truly like an action movie.

Also, can I just say Emilia and Dom forever!! Emilia was a strong woman, who wasn’t going to be the damsel in distress at any cost. She could stand on her own two feet, which I respected. Dom wanted a better life that didn’t revolve around

I can't wait to share Dom's story with you. Yep, he's Cole's lawyer friend from LOVE OVER LATTES.

Stay tuned, cover reveal is next Thursday 9/13!!!

Hopefully, our decision to publish Dom's story first won't confuse readers. A couple of months ago, I had the cover reveal for LOVE OVER TIME, which is Nikki's story. Long story short, my publisher will not be releasing Nikki's book until Spring 2019. Instead, we're releasing LOVE OVER LOGIC in November. Yay! So, Book 3, is now Book 2. And the old Book
