Liliana is growing up and is no longer the child that Romero remembers. Despite his best attempts, he can no longer ignore the beautiful young lady that she has become. She hasn't grown out of her infatuation with Romero over the years, she's only become more determined to have him.
Initially, there is a lot of push and pull between Lily and Romero. She keeps coming on to him. He keeps turning her down, while he secretly fantasizes about what it would be like to have her.
Romero does his best to stay loyal to The Family. He's never wanted anything other than being a loyal soldier, until Lily. Now, he's forced to betray his heart or betray his vows. I think you can guess what he'll choose. He is only a man, after all.
I love a forbidden love story, so this one was right up my alley. Add in a dangerous guy with serious bad-boy appeal and I'm hooked! It's no wonder that I loved Lily and Romero's story.
While I don't want to give too much away, I will say that Lily surprised me with her strength. As the youngest sister, she was always portrayed as the silly little girl that was left out of the grown-up conversations before. She definitely came into her own in this book. Honestly, she was kind of a little bad-ass.
Similarly, I really came to appreciate Gianna in this book. While Aria seemed more submissive and happy to be the good little wife to Luca, Gianna wasn't afraid to stir things up on behalf of her little sister. I absolutely loved Gianna in this book!
Despite the fact that the story was predictable and like many other mafia romances out there, I didn't care. If it works, it works. This book worked for me. I enjoyed every minute and I don't feel guilty for it.
The only downside to this story was that there was a large amount of grammatical errors. Incorrect word usage, misspellings and other elementary grammar oversights were pretty common. It was a bit distracting at times. For such a popular series and author, I'd expect the editing to be much better.
Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was predictable, but entertaining. I was left feeling happy and contented. With war on the horizon for the New York and Chicago organizations, I'm curious to see where the next book in the series will lead.
Things I didn't like: I didn't really care for the scenes with their mother dying. Don't get me wrong, it was sad and necessary to the plot. I am just not a fan of storylines where someone is ill and dying. It feels dark in a way that I don't like. But it was well written.
The story from the beginning of Lily and Romero has always interested me because it's a great plot with the younger girl and her crush. It's unrequited love that eventually comes around. Very romantic. So that already had me. Romero is so far the most hopeless romantic male of the series, at least in a traditional sense. We get to see him be willing to risk it all, even down to his life because of his love for Lily. He was a made man in every sense and yet still the most kind and openly affectionate with her from the start, of any male of this series. How could you not fall for him and get all swoony over this story?
I felt at first like Lily was being immature and a bit selfish by purposely causing so much trouble for the New York family after they had taken her in. But in the end, it's just a story about romance and we all got the dreamy and romantic ending we were looking for.
Even though it's predictable that it's a love story with a HEA, it wasn't predictable how it would all work out and that kept me interested and glued to the pages.
Their dad is a disgusting pile of crap and I really hope we get more books because the ending of this really felt like just a beginning. What comes of the all out war now? What happens with their dad? Will any of them have kids?? I would love to see them handle parenthood in this world. So many questions after the end of this story.
I have mixed feelings about Aria after this. On one hand, I feel like she sometimes uses the fact that Luca can't resist her to do whatever she wants and get away with it. It's like when you work somewhere and they give you an employee discount just for yourself but you let all your friends use it. After what happened with Gianna and her betrayal I thought it was worth it and she did the right thing by her sister. But after that, for her to do it again with Lily feels wrong. He gives her a pass for herself because he loves her and she forces him to use that for anyone she chooses. Not that they aren't good reasons that she has, it just feels a little like manipulation. Plus, I liked that even though he loved her he didn't sanitize himself.
On the other hand, in the first book, she was always the one to be the most like a push over and she is the only of the sisters that didn't have her husband love her at the start, so maybe she deserves a few rebellious times?
We didn't see as much of Gianna and Matteo as I would have liked, but it was still enough. I liked seeing everyone doing well as a couple. I really hope the author continues and gives us more. There's so much more to know.

It was nice to see how this one would play out, there has been a lot of build up between this pair and I wondered if it would fall short of the mark, I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as I hoped I would but it was still an exciting read.
Lily was so strong, she had so much to deal with and I feel like it was a bit of a shame that we didn’t get to know her as more than the inappropriately flirty sister before this. However it made it a little bit more rewarding getting to know her. I liked that she followed her heart even though the consequences could be severe.
Of course Lily and Romero together were super cute, and I was glad that they got their chance to be together. It was also really nice to check in with all the other characters from the previous books.
What I didn’t like…
I felt like maybe this one was a bit more rushed than the others, I don’t know maybe it was my expectations that meant I was a little disappointed, it didn’t quite have the same tension that the rest of the series had.
Also the fact that Lily was pretty much sold off to a guy old enough to be her father was horrible and how that situation turned out wasn’t quite as good as I thought it would be.
I wasn’t as enamoured with this book as I had been to the series previous installments however I still found it hard to put down and I had been desperate to find out what would happen between this pair.
This book was really weird for me. Before you start saying what the hell is that suppose to mean, hear me out. About 60% of the book there's nothing heart palpation worthy and that's fine cause sometimes you need to take things slow but after 60% it's like Bam Bam thank you mame. Secondly the ending was a big NO! Yes it was a HEA but you know those kinds of HEA that leave a lump in your throat and your like something bads gonna happen and your just waiting for it, even though the books finished and your like NOOOS it just started, well that's the kind of ending I got and I didn't like it nor did I hated it. I D.E.S.P.I.S.E.D it. That being said cora really got me in this book and sure luca and matteo made me all fuzzy inside the real winner were two people, Fabi and Romero. Initially this was a 3 jar rating but Romero won me over and this is all for him.
