Nicola Agosto is the hometown hero. Who doesn’t love him? He was the favorite of Ivy’s Twisted Vine (2008) and the ultimate good bad boy in Dmitry’s Closet (2010). If there were ever a hot Italian cop, Nicola Agosto is the man, but I’ve often questioned why so many readers love him.
I went through my fan mail, and I have over 800 letters alone about Nicola Agosto. They love his chocolate brown locks, his big hazelnut brown eyes, his deep dimples, his chiseled body and all the machismo he inherently has that drives women mad. But he’s also the opposite of everything around him. He lights up a room; he controls it; then he devours everyone in it.
Everyone is wondering if Agosto will get another book. And the answer is yes. I can only type so fast (with quality) and giving him his own story in The World In Reverse is so difficult. However, I try everyday to achieve a little bit with him including chapters that make me laugh and cry.
To get back to his story in the Medlov Series, we know that Nicola or Nic is after the Medlov family. He was not afraid of Dmitry in Dmitry’s Closet and wants nothing more than to take down Anatoly. Where he had suspicions of Anatoly running the family, he received confirmation in this book. It’s all that he needs to start a full-on investigation of our young, bad boy.
Agosto’s entire purpose was to show that law enforcement never sleeps and while they depend on tips and UC’s (under cover agents) for info, they don’t just let the case files sit on their desk. They are always working.
So, he sees that Cory (the undercover from Dmitry’s Closet) couldn’t get in nearly four years ago and puts the over-eager Destiny Palmer in his place to find out Intel.
It would have been a smart move if it weren’t for the overall sex appeal of the Medlov men. Could you imagine being close to Anatoly in a confined space? What would you not do under the control of a little (in Destiny’s case a lot) of absinthe? She was captivated by him, aroused by his power and dumb-founded by just him. It’s hard to resist a man like that. You try, but there is this kill switch inside of you that once turned on, causes an immediate break-down of common sense, then a count-down to self-destruction. I know. I fallen in love and each time, I heard the little voice in my head. Countdown to destruction beginning in 10, 9, 8… you get the point.
Agosto is still the Boy Scout and often, he is referred to as such. But he sees the potential in Destiny. She’s beautiful, smart and ambitious. I’m sure he saw a little of Ivy in her.
Only Destiny didn’t know what she was going up against. Mind games of mega proportions. The academy couldn’t train her for this even though they had tried. This is one of those situations were you need strong fortitude (in the words of my daddy).
Agost tried to warn her in the classroom. I liked the setting because he was schooling her.
Only, she thought that she knew more than him. Sometimes, we think that our charms work better than they actually do. We are legends in our own mind. Sometimes, the men we are trying to control see right through us.
What were your initial thoughts when you found out that the little mishap with the Audi was intentional? Did any of you hope that she’d be found out? Did you know that she was headed to trouble?
We’ll move into the relationship with Renee in a later discussion, but as always, I’m always anxious to here your thoughts.
XoXo and all that jazz,
