Levi's Ultimatum 18+

This book is recommended for mature readers, it contains adult content.
 Levi's Ultimatum (Purgatory Masters, #2) 
4 of 5 stars false 
Levi’s Ultimatum is book 2 in the Purgatory Masters series, Book 1 is Tucker’s Fall and is available now.
In search of someplace to belong…
Levi Hawkins was a typical fun loving, hard partying college student with his whole life in front of him — until one tragic night ripped his world apart and left him adrift with no home or family to return to. After a soul crushing stint in Afghanistan, he spent a decade wandering the globe searching for something or someone to make him whole again. Weary of regret and consumed by loneliness, he puts his heart on the line and turns to the only people still connected to him by blood.
He found an obsession…
A chance encounter at a lakeside cafĂ© puts single mother Tori Ford directly in Levi’s path and he’s ready to stake a claim. She wants to keep her life simple. Work hard, raise her daughter, save some money and one day open the pie shop she’s always dreamed of. She doesn’t need complicated and she certainly doesn’t need a wickedly hot Dominant to take control of her future. Except when he touches her she yearns for the pleasure and passion of submission. But Tori can’t take another heartbreak and she can never trust Levi with her heart or her daughter if he won’t open up about the darkness slowly consuming him.


****Gypsy Ink Books through NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Levi Hawkins has a dark past that he and his family have put a lot of effort into hiding. He's sick of traveling the world searching for a place he's already found, home.
Toni Ford has an ex-husband she's ready to move on from, she's not ready to complicate her life with another man, especially a dominate one like Levi. When she walks into the dining room of the small restaurant she sells pies to and finds her beautiful little girl talking and coloring with a gruff tattooed man in desperate need of a shave she should be terrified, right? But this man is different she can see it in his eyes. When both peoples secrets start to come back to haunt them, who can hang on to the newly formed ties, and who will be left devastated?
I read this book as a standalone. While it made me want to read the first book, I didn't feel like I was lost, but as with everything where the characters overlap I think it's ideal to read the first book before picking this one up. I immediately fell in love with Levi, like full out fan girling love. I have such a weakness for a Dominant man, but he wasn't just the bossy man, he was also vulnerable at times and so very adorable with Toni's little girl Hannah. Toni I didn't connect with nearly as much, but the story and Levi made up for that. I never saw the twists and turns coming and it left me on the edge of my seat! There was nothing textbook predictable about the underlying mystery in this story.
