In a series debut for fans of Tracy Wolff and Sylvia Day, New York Times bestselling author Missy Johnson asks a burning question: What happens when love is undeniable—and taboo? Pietro Gustovi is loyal, polished, and hard as stone, the kind of guy women want and men respect. At twenty-three, he’s survived tragedies that would break men twice his age. And he owes it all to his father’s closest friend, Giovanni Spontagio, who took him in as an orphaned teenager. Pietro would give his life for Giovanni . . . but his heart belongs to Giovanni’s daughter.
Raised in Chicago under the spotlight of power and privilege, Lucy Spontiago feels most alive on stage. Determined to become a prima ballerina, she escapes her father’s protective gaze long enough to audition for the ballet in New York City. Soon, however, Lucy realizes that she is not alone. Pietro is watching her back. And though he’s like a brother to her, Lucy cannot deny the thrill she feels knowing his eyes are on her.
Pietro could never betray his mentor by sleeping with his only child. But Lucy follows her passions, no matter how forbidden. Soon their nights are consumed by explosive, red-hot temptation—a dance that will expose shocking secrets and burn everything else to the ground. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Code of Honor is the first book in Missy Johnson’s new Spontagio Family series and it is a fantastic start to what is bound to be a captivating series. Everything from the storyline to character development is spot on with this book.
I loved the danger and mystery that surrounds Pietro’s past and his drive to know what happened to his family. He’s such a loyal character with the perfect balance of growly alpha and sweet hero. Lucy is such a doll. I almost felt bad for her situation and how overbearing her father was, even if it was to keep her safe. I like how she’s not a poor pitiful me type, even though she easily could have been.
The chemistry between Pietro and Lucy is hot. The angsty sexual tension between them built and built until it exploded. Made it worth the moments I wanted to knock their heads together for holding back.
Code of Honor has it all; romance, mystery, action, and drama — not to mention hot erotica. If you are looking for a new series this is one I would recommend. Be warned … there is a cliffhanger, but it’s totally worth it. Four stars for storyline and four drenched panties for this great new release!
