Christiano is a compelling hero- straight away, we forgive and relish his darkness, because this is a man who has suffered at the betrayal and treachery of others. His vendetta makes him initially dangerous and cruel, but we find his softer layers pretty quickly as we start to unpack his past and as we see him drawn to his captive, Scarlett- the enemy who is in his clutches just waiting for him to destroy, only her spark somehow chips away at his anger. Despite Scarlett’s own painful history and the darkness surrounding this story, she’s actually quite a fun heroine. She’s feisty, with a smart mouth and smart wit. She’s fiercely proactive of those she loves and refuses to back down to anyone, let alone her very intimidating captor. Like Christiano, we find her softer layers as well- she’s suffered greatly from being a pawn in the machinations of greedy and corrupt men- men who by their birthright should protect and cherish her. BOTH of these characters are such powerful survivors- flawed, but beautiful. We empathize with them so easily- long before we know some of their truths.
The story starts out with an incredibly intense BANG- a full throttle, take no prisoners exposition that hooked me immediately. From there, our story slows down a smidge as these two characters start to orbit each other and clash...and as we start to piece together the secrets we only read between the lines at first. I caught on to some larger secrets earlier, and so the reveals felt a bit drawn out for me, though NK does a great job building the intrigue and emotional suspense. I’ve noticed recently with NK duets that the first book has a slower romantic pace, with a heavier focus on building the emotional base and the suspenseful architecture. And, this duet seems to be following a similar pattern. Which means this is a slow burn- Natasha really makes us ache as she builds the anticipation. The emotional connection and the chemistry between them took a while to click for me- once they did, I was addicted. There is a lot unspoken between these characters- a budding connection we don’t yet understand, but they have empathy for one another that starts to challenge their plan to use the other to get what they need. The pace accelerates quickly from there, with a barrage of betrayals, twists, and heartbreaking moments that lead to a heart stopping cliff hanger. THANK GOODNESS the next book is not far away- because by the end of this story I was obsessed with these two and am desperate to find out just what this ending means for their overarching story.
This is just what I like in mafia romantic suspense- it’s dark, unpredictable, sexy, and dangerous. A wild and dramatic adventure with a turbulent and messy love story at its center. I NEED BOOK 2!
Mafia themed tales. She writes in such a way that you can't help but be
sucked into their horrific world, and at times, I felt overwhelmed trying
to understanding just how damaged and broken both Christiano and
Scarlett was. How they existed within the blood bath that was their
reality. There is a fine between love and hate, and this couple are dancing
on that sharp edge.
Christiano, a man with hate in his heart and vengeance on his mind. A
man without a conscience or remorse when it came to the De La Cruz
family, except when it came to Scarlett .He recognises the fight in her
eyes.Her inner strength, and it intrigued him.
Scarlett, a woman who had been dehumanized in the most perverse
ways possible.Trapped initially by her family and now at the mercy of
Christiano. I felt her fear and despair as she fought to survive. Her
struggle to ignore her treacherous body as she began to crave Christiano’s
This was not an easy read. It was dark and compelling. Be warned that it
will push boundaries. A sadistic experience from start to finish. But I was
utterly engrossed, and I was left wanting so much more. I'm so ready for
the next book. I'm on tender hooks wanting to know what will happen
Characters have depth and peeks the curiosity for what could come, but it is so full of angst, I could not finish it. At one point it became predictable when the h was going to pivot in dramatic fashion yet again 🙄 Also, the H took an incredible amount of time to follow thru with his threats of sleeping with her. No mafia dude would be so teenage girly with the excuses not to.
Less tela novella by the h, and more follow thru by the H would make a world of difference!
