Lucia is messed up, damaged and so not what I was expecting in a heroine. The story she showed me left me in tears and in shock. I had to stop and process a couple of the scenes, they were so well written I could visualize it and the images were not ones I thought I'd be seeing!
Martinez, I can't even describe him adequately. This ruthless Mob Boss was as big a surprise to me as he must have been to Lucia!
And yes this story is dark, it has some very disturbing and gritty moments but they're needed to get the full scope of Lucia and Martinez.
I have a feeling we will be seeing more of them, or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part?
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Our heroine in this book by Serena Akeroyd is not the least bit like I expected. Lucia is a very damaged soul who is a cop. She has been undercover and she is really good at what she does. But when she comes back to 'normal' policing, she doesn't feel 'right'. What she doesn't know is that the Mob Boss, Martinez, has been watching her for some years now and he's waiting for the moment to claim her as he wants her despite knowing that she's a cop. What he doesn't realise is that Lucia can't bear to be touched due to what happened to her many years ago that some women wouldn't have survived. When Martinez makes a 'deal' with her what will the implications be? She has handed over the evidence that got his brother slammed in prison. What will the rest of the gang think of his now being with her? How many lives will it effect? Do they stand a chance or is there all too much going against them? To find out you need to grab yourself a copy as it was compulsive reading for me. It is a very emotional story that will pull at your heart strings. This is the first time that I've read anything by Serena but it will most certainly not be the last. This book is powerful and the author has such a fantastic command of the English language and has used it here to create atmosphere and some exceptional characters in this dark romance.
The Raw Touch
That being said. This is a twisted story, dark romance doesn't even begin with this book. I was shocked and in awe in various part of the story, at the characters and at the author for being able to write this.
It's not my first Serena Akeroyd book. In fact, her name on the cover was the reason I asked for the ARC in the first place. I know I loved her writing style and gut wrenching characters. I was not disappointed.
You can definitively call this characters anti-heroes because they are so far from perfect and good that it's incredible. I got hooked from the beginning, because I love characters with darker pasts, but also because the story was not going to let me put the book down for one second.
I read this all in one sitting. I also cried with this story because it touch me, it really did.
Let's not explore the sexy side of the book in this review. I can't even begin with that part. It was so well done, so hot... and twisted... and hot... and incredible mind twisting.
I would recommend this book if you love characters that are dark to the society they live in, but good in their core. The problem is, nobody sees the good in them. Only another fellow dark soul can see, and that's what happened here.

Martinez is the leader of a gang. He has had his eye on Lucia since she first joined. He is not your typical thug, he has rules pertaining to woman..they never get hurt and are to be respected.
Lucia infiltrates the gang and brings down Martinez's brother. He feels she needs to pay and so kidnapped her.
This is where the story gets raw, gritty and brilliant. We are given glimpses into Lucia's life and why she is the way she is.
A brilliant storyline developed and complex characters.
I loved the book.
I voluntarily read this ARC and am giving my honest and unbiased opinion of the book as I experienced it
