“The passion explodes off the page!” - Apple Books Reader Review

Two years out of college, Angelica Bondesan spends her time working as a barista, keeping in touch with her prodigal brother, and trying to figure out how to bridge the gap with her father, a wealthy real estate developer. 

But all of that changes the night she’s kidnapped. Thrown into a windowless room, Angelica is positive there’s been some kind of mistake — until she meets Nico Vitale. 

Gorgeous and frightening, Nico became the boss of New York City’s Vitale crime family after the execution style murder of his parents two years earlier. Since then he’s turned the old-school mob into a sleek, modern army of ruthless men who understand that physical violence — while always an option — isn’t the only way to get what you want. 

Now Angel is forced to face the truth;

Her father is not the man she believed him to be.

Nico Vitale is dangerous, possibly lethal. 

She is falling in love with Nico Vitale.

I didn't want it to end

No, No, No, No, No I Need More, More, More.
Innocence lost, no way to know what the truth is. Angelica is held hostage by a ruthless mob boss, but what is the real threat to her- him, things she does not know or her feelings.
This story is an action packed romance thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. With plenty of lies to unfold, truths to be told, etc etc it's just great.
Steam factor is high. An undeniable attraction that's wrong, but so right. The passion comes off the page.
An incomplete ending leaves me screaming for book two.

Review: Mob Boss #1: Ruthless

Ruthless by Michelle St. James is the first book in her Mob Boss series. It is a great twist to the usual Mob type book I've read in that it deals with different families within the overall "Syndicate". Well-paced with great characters this story will keep you turning the pages. The chemistry between Angelica and Nico was explosive, despite her best efforts to deny the attraction. The story is interesting and twisty without being overly done. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about these two and cannot wait to clear my reading schedule and cram the next couple of books in.

Oh Angelica and Nico - what a pair - I absolutely loved this story and will DEFINITELY be reading the rest of the series!
