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.
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!
Trope: Second chance
Oh My God!!!
What a story! Oh my god, I am BLOWN away! I’ve read all of J L’s book that’s available on this app & this one has officially became my favorite. I’ve fallen in love with each character. I felt the love the family has for S, the bond between S & Wyatt, the soul mate connection between S & E, it was all so well expressed. I cannot believe I have to wait till October to continue the story! I have questions & I need answers!!! God, this book was AMAZZZZZIIIING!!!
Secrets, betrayal, love and death. This story takes us on a dark journey into each of these. Drake had me completely invested in these characters from the very first chapter. She doesn’t ease you into it either. She thrusts you right into the tragic side of life but then lulls you into this place of safety and healing to once again, pull the rug right out from under you.
This is not your typical mafia romance and Elio is not your typical underboss. He didn’t have a choice in which path he would take, but such is life when you are born into the la familia. He’s the perfect combination of dangerous, and passionate, especially when it comes to his family and Sienna, but not all is as it seems.
Sienna is feisty, kind and loyal, despite the amount of heartaches she has faced in her life. And man, has it been cruel to this poor girl. With the help of her BFF Wyatt, she takes a big leap to find answers to the mysteries that surround her life and what happens next propels her onto a dark path she never saw coming.
Secrets, betrayal, love and death. They are bountiful and they will face them all together and individually, but It’s not up to them who will be the victor in the end. True to Drake fashion, she won’t make it easy on you and will keep you wanting until the very last word.
