Spotlight and Review ~ LUCA by Gina Whitney


“Anger is like a thorn in the heart...the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.” ~Luca

Pyromania is an impulse control disorder in which individuals repeatedly fail to resist impulses to deliberately start fires, in order to relieve tension or for instant gratification.

Damon Luca, or Luca as they called him. I thought of him more as Damien, the fucking devil within these walls that now is my life. Dark, broody, and deadly to any woman. Mind-blowing, soul-shaking, raw sex appeal. He was a tall statured boy with broad shoulders and a pair of green eyes that set my soul on fire. His inky black hair framed his hard, chiseled features. He had the type of body that had no business being on a seventeen-year-old. I knew that once he fully developed, he'd be nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous. As I said...deadly on the eyes...and dangerous for your heart.

My name is Allison. I met Luca through an unfortunate event when we were younger. I’m now twenty-four, and this is my story. My fucked up life. It's not a pretty one. Then again, the most interesting ones aren't...are they? This isn't your usual love story. Anything but. There are no blue skies, rainbows, or unicorns. Only own personal arsonist. He had the ability to set my panties on fire, leave my body smoldering, and turn my heart into burning embers. He scared the hell out of me, made me feel. He opened my eyes to the world of twisted love. But love no less. This scary, beautiful man stole my heart from a young, tender age and refused to give it back. Here’s our story…
This story is deep, dark, and deals with real scars and growth because of them.
Five “Holy Shit! What the Fuck just happened?” Corsets

After reading Saving Abel and Forgiving Gia (anxiously awaiting Avenging Us! –hint hint-) I wasn’t sure how the hell Gina Whitney could top them!
I mean, how the heck do you top Abel Gunner?

While Abel will always have a place in my heart there is a new man in town. 

Damon DeLuca.

Otherwise known as Luca. 

He’s a dark, bad boy with a penchant for all things HOT and man does he set the pages on fire! I’ve never read a story quite like this before. It was intriguing and drew me in from the start! I found myself wanting to savor it and take it all in slowly.

Take a unique storyline, amazing hot sex, emotional turmoil and add in Gina’s talent for giving a reader all they can take and then some…. And you have one hell of a story. This book will pull and pull and pull you in… guiding you along the way. Luca, Allison, Ollie, Archer and Melissa will reel you into their lives.

Then Gina will not so gently throw you over the cliff.

And you will love every minute of it! 

This story isn’t for the faint at heart. This story takes serious subjects and intertwines them with lovable and complex characters.

“My isolation, abandonment, and anxiety gave way to emotional arousal. I lived to see the chaos as well as the destruction that I – or others – have caused… after a fire, fleeting thoughts of sadness and anguish remained. The one thing that was constant was my erection. Starting fires got me hard. I stayed hard throughout and shortly thereafter. A release was needed. I’ve always been a highly sexual person.”

“He was in a mood this morning. I didn’t answer, but rather just sighed at his dirty mouth. His heart pumped a fast, strong beat against my back. Just as mine did to the mattress below me. My body was on fire, and it was threatening to boil over. A wave of heat hit me. Finding it’s way into all the hidden barriers inside me, cascading down my neck, down my chest and down, down, down between my legs. “
 She's published four novels so far. Blood Ties(PNR), Beautiful Lies, Saving Abel, Forgiving Gia and soon Luca. When she's not writing, you can find her with friends and family. She resides in Massapequa, NY with her two beautiful boys. Reading has always been a passion and obsession of hers. You can usually find her typing furiously while shouting obscenities over her latest WIP. Her guilty pleasures are: a good laugh, being snarky, espresso, Pistachio ice-cream, alternative music, sunflower seeds, I.P.A's, twizzlers, and above all steamy swooning angst filled novels. She's pathologically obsessed with anything to do with royals, Games of Thrones, White Queen, Vampire Diaries, Resurrection, SOA, The Vikings and The Originals.
