What does it mean when your loyalty has been promised in blood?
They called it a family for a reason.
As one of the many soldiers that make up the Benetti Crime Family, Nico Rossi wasn’t like any of the other soldiers. Handpicked by Luca Benetti at the tender age of fourteen, Nico began earning his spot within the family early on. With plenty of jobs under his belt, there was no doubt that he was going to continue to climb the ranks within the family. After all, he answered only to The Holy Trinity.
Though Nico has done plenty of jobs for the Benetti Crime Family, his most important was Mia Gallo, his first Benetti job ever. Guarding her since he was fourteen-years-old, there was nothing he didn’t know about her. He’s watched her grow from a gangly eight-year-old to a college freshman, and only her brother knew her better than he did. Of course, Nico was also in love with her, so there was that.
Life was a series of events that were often unpredictable, and Mia Gallo knew that better than anyone. At eight-years-old, Ciro Mancini had appeared in her life and had changed it forever. Removing her from a toxic environment, Ciro had given her and her brother a chance at a normal life, and she cherished that blessing every day. Gifted with a second chance, Mia was eternally grateful for it.
Though Mia has done the best she can to lead a normal life, she’s still very aware that her life isn’t all that normal. With her brother working for the Mafia, she knows she’s not like everyone else. She understands that she’s a part of something bigger, but it doesn’t frighten her. It should, but it doesn’t. Mia also knows that the man of her dreams better not frighten easily, either.
When your past, present, and future belong to someone else…

As the unthinkable happens, Mia isn’t surprised to find out that she has an assigned guard. Knowing who her brother works for, not much surprises her when it comes to the Mafia. Though not what she expected, now that Nico Rossi has made himself known, Mia finds herself wanting to know more.
Face-to-face with their past, present, and future, they quickly find out there’s not much of a choice when it comes to what happens next. Especially, when it involves The Holy Trinity.
