Remo Falcone is beyond redemption. As Capo of the Camorra he rules with a brutal hand over his territory – a territory the Chicago Outfit breached. Now Remo is out for retribution. A wedding is sacred, stealing a bride sacrilegious. Serafina is the niece of the Boss of the Outfit, and her hand has been promised in marriage for years, but kidnapped in her wedding dress on her way to church by Remo, Serafina quickly realizes that she can’t hope for saving. Yet, even in the hands of the cruelest man she knows, she is determined to cling to her pride, and Remo soon understands that the woman at his mercy might not be as easy to break as he thought. A ruthless man on a quest to destroy the Outfit by breaking someone they are supposed to protect. A woman intent on bringing a monster to his knees. Two families that will never be the same. “Are you ignoring me?” Remo asked from close behind me, and a small shiver shot down my spine. “Does that ever work?” I said, wishing my voice came out stronger, but it was already a fight forcing those four words out of my tight throat. “No,” Remo said. “I’m difficult to ignore.” Impossible to ignore. “Turn around,” Remo ordered. I didn’t move, focusing on the gray stone in front of me. It wasn’t only an act of defiance. My legs refused to move. Fear kept me frozen, but Remo didn’t need to know that. His hot breath ghosted over my neck, and I closed my eyes, wedging my lower lip between my teeth to stifle a sound. “Open disobedience?” he asked in a low voice. His palms pressed down on my shoulder blades, and I almost crumpled under their weight, even though he didn’t put much pressure behind the touch. “On second thought,” he said gently. “This position works well too.” The soft clink of a blade being unsheathed made me jump. Remo braced himself to both sides of me, a long dagger in one hand.

If you are looking for a light-hearted rom-com, this book is not for you. However, if you like a dark and twisty alpha male romance, then pick this book up now! This book is not for the faint of heart, it is gritty, dark and violent, but it’s also a great story. Remo and Serafina are two of my favorite characters. Both of them are so strong, and that made reading about their romance so much more enjoyable.
The story is well paced, and I didn’t find myself bored like I do with so romance books. This book was action packed. The other great thing about this story that while it is part of a series, you can easily jump right in. I hadn’t read the previous book in the series, and not once did I feel lost or confused.
