Synopsis

My name was Eden Moretti.

After being betrayed by those I’d trusted, my life spiraled out of control. I lost my innocence and dreams in one fell swoop.

Now, I’m a junkie dancer who will do just about anything to earn a buck or get my next fix. When you’re living off the books to stay hidden on the fringes between Carlotti and Finelli territory, anything means…anything.

The mafia lords and their heirs own this city. They fiercely protect their turf along with anything else they lay claim to. Murder, mayhem, and money are the driving forces behind the ruthless Familes, and death comes swiftly to those who get in their way.

Tony, Vanni, Marco, and Santos are the heirs to the Carlotti Empire, one of the most prolific crime syndicates in NYC. And one of them was the catalyst for the wreckage my life had become.

Due to a budding war with another Family, our paths have crossed again. Except this time, I didn’t have a chance to run. The Carlotti men I’d once trusted as boys took me, but to what end?

To save me? Keep me? Kill me?

The Carlotti heirs don’t know what they just took on, but I’ll enjoy showing them exactly what I’m capable of. That is, if I don’t wind up dead first.

Review

No Good Deed is a gritty, violent, engaging, and heartbreaking romance that I didn’t expect to like as much as I did.  There are about 800,000 triggers in this book, including graphic violence and sexual assault.  It was hard for even me to read, and I don’t really have triggers, so if you do, this is probably not the book for you. 

No Good Deed is a second chance romance, and I enjoyed that we didn’t have to wait until the end of the book to find out “what went wrong the first time”  In fact, that whole situation was handled pretty quickly, which I appreciated as a reader.  While that was a plot point, there was still a lot more going on than just that.  Even at the end of this book, there are quite a few unanswered questions.  

The characters were all great. I enjoyed how flawed Eden was.  It was easy to connect with her, especially after reading everything she’d been through and seeing she still had so much fight left in her. Liking Eden as much as I did make parts of this book harder to read.  No Good Deed is a reverse harem, and the guys fit the typical RH mold. There’s the charming one and the broody one etc.  I liked all of the guys and especially liked how they protected Eden.  I don’t want to get into any spoilers, but they seemed to realize pretty quickly she wasn’t the teenager that they knew. This is not a book about good people.  All the characters are, for lack of a better word, “bad,” but these are the types of characters I love, flawed.  

I cannot wait for the next book!  Not just because of the cliffhanger but also because I just loved these characters so much and want more!
