Cold. Ruthless. Killer. I am respected and feared by all.
I wasn’t put on this earth to love or be loved. I was put here to wipe out every last member of the damn Abandonato mafia, to pay them back for my mother’s death.
When I find a strange girl hiding, beaten, under my bed, I don’t let her live out of compassion. She’s a trinket, my plaything.
I thought Alessio was only one more man who wanted to use me, hurt me, and throw me away. I don’t know what it is to trust anymore. I can’t find my heart under the pain.
Alessio found it. He touched it and brought it alive again. But if he discovers just how dangerous I am to him.... I’ll lose my life.

Good Start To A Series

Lylah James brings us a very intriguing, enthralling, exciting, gripping story that centers around Alessio and Ayla. Each with their own part to play in the criminal underworld. From warring mafia families - He's the leader of the Russians, her father is the leader of the Italians. In her attempt to escape the Hell that had become her life, she inadvertently finds solace within Alessio's home. Her lies keep her alive, but they gnaw at her conscious the closer she gets with her "boss." Her past, her fear, her will to live all become tested when she begins to open herself up, and fall in love with the Brava lord. He's drawn to her, her vulnerability, and even her walls. He wants to crash them all down and get her into his bed. Lines start to blur when he realizes just how much he wants her to stay there.
This was a good book. It was well written, and had me on the edge of my seat. This being a dark romance, you expect some uncomfortable situations. And that's where I struggled with my rating on this book. Story-line, characters, everything - It could have been a 5 star listen.

What is with so many characters names starting with Alessio, Alberto, Alfredo, Ayla, Artur, Angel too much already. Also, I found myself disappointed. Her happiness is tainted a LOT by her past. I understand it, completely. I just felt myself longing for more. And it actually is the reason why I'm so eager to read book 2.

Tia Rider Sorensen was good with the delivery of the story

So so long

This is a good book that could have been done in half the time. It’s the book that just won’t end. 11 hours and no sex scenes omg. They could seriously fit the whole trilogy into this one book it was so so long. I think they’re a lot better books out there but it was not a complete waste of time
