A twisted mafia romance about quiet wealth and refined darkness
It’s been ten years since he left me with nothing but a pendant, a photo, and a broken heart. He was but a ghost, there one minute and gone the next. I picked myself up, dried my eyes, and built my life without him. Now he has come back into my life like a raging storm surrounded by crime and bloodshed. I no longer need him, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him—or just a little taste…
Ten years ago, I had to leave behind the only light I had in my life. Without her, I live in darkness. I am not proud of the things I’ve done, nor the blood that’s been shed. Everything I did had been to protect her. We live by our code—family, power, loyalty, and protection. Our empire is built on the bones of our enemies. Now that she is back and we have a second chance, they will learn one way or another you do not touch my queen.
Capri Famiglia will rise to the top no matter the cost, bloodshed, or the lines that will have to be blurred.
Sometimes you wonder how you can read another mafia story and not get bored. Well, have no fear. This book will keep you intrigued and anxious for the next revelation. Some patterns are there, but the story in this one is so unique. Kudos to J.L. Drake.
Loved the characters, and the storyline. I can’t wait to read the rest, and more from this author. 💕💯
This was such a WONDERFUL story! I have to say up front that when I got this book, I did not realize it ended on a cliffhanger. I usually avoid these stories, but I’m SO glad I read this and can’t wait for the next book in the series! This was my first JL Drake story and I can say it definitely won’t be my last. Elio and Sienna’s story was an emotional rollercoaster ride from the start to the agonizing cliffy. Love, betrayal, Childhood friends to first time love and a heartbreaking separation that neither of them saw coming until it was too late. Sierra was left with a broken heart and pendant, trying to move through life with a heart shattered to dust. Elio working his way through life with his heart missing until circumstances throw them together once again. Elio is so protective of Sienna and just belonging to him puts her life in danger - especially when it appears they have a threat with inside knowledge of Elio’s organization. The story moved quickly and action packed. The writing was beautiful and the chemistry between the characters was practically tangible. Fabulous read!
