In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s between brothers. And I’m the prize.
I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves. Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I'm prepared to trade for my freedom. I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants. Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother's arms.
“She is mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, future, and love I don’t get to choose.
I wasn’t expecting this book. I wasn’t expecting this story. And it’s blown me away in every way. Such a unique, twisty, complex, intoxicating start to what promises to me a MUST READ series. I cannot recommend this book enough, I can’t shout about it enough. It’s my #1 FAVORITE read of the year. I am shook!
I HAVE LOST MY MIND OVER THIS BOOK.
I mean… HOLY SHIT! Holy freaking shit. This is the book of the year for me. THE #1! It barreled over all of my favorites. I’m declaring it the winner. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I can’t believe how good it was. I can’t wrap my head around it. I mean, WHERE DID THIS STORY LINE COME FROM? It rocked me to my core. Undeniably addictive. Every word forces you to pay attention. The characters are commanding and demanding, bold and cunning, smart and layered, and just woweeeeeeee! I fell in love with our anti-hero Cristiano, and his brother Diego… NO WORDS.
I can’t even explain.
And this storyline… It’s twisty. Lordy, is it twisty. I can’t say much. I feel like that would be too spoilery! And I don’t want to color your minds with my opinions. This is a book you need to throw yourself into. This story will devour you. It’ll make you feel SO MUCH. It’s unique and refreshing and angsty and intense and smart and twisted and so many other things. I can tell the author took the time to really write a detailed, smart, complex, and thoroughly thought-out tale. One with an intricate plot, a cast of characters who have boldly defined personalities, and writing that just LIVES and BREATHES. I am such a fan of this book. You need to read it. I swear, it’s so good. Mafia romance done right.
