Ummm freaking hell! What did I just read?! Bella seriously knocked me on my ass with this book. I am still setting here at a loss of words. One thing is definitely for sure she left me hanging. She also left me racing through the pages to find out what the hell was going to happen. I was enamored with this book and the characters. They are both strong, fierce, and loyal. Yep, it is a mafia book. Nope, its not like any other I have ever read. Completely different.
Rafael is one serious alpha male. Hes demanding. Hes stubborn. Hes a pain in the ass. But that makes me love him more. Hes a complicated man. His family values are strong. There’s nothing more important than family. He is also a very wise business man. With his family there are so many rules. Does he follow them all? Hell naw. Hes a rule breaker. Except for his own. He does NOT break those. No matter who wants him to.
Julietta is a sassy female. She doesn’t take any lip from anyone. Not even Rafael. She is super quick to put him in his place. It may hurt her like hell at times, but she doesn’t let that stop her. Shes fierce, funny, and really sweet. She loves people. Well… Most people anyway. She is also very close to her family. But, when she finds out things in her life are nothing but lies I am scared for what she might do. There were times where I was reading and said out loud… oh shit. Girl, don’t go there! I really liked her a lot. Her personality is a lot like my own. Sarcastic and witty. She was a lot of fun to read. And her getting Rafael to loosen up and laugh a bit was epic!
I loved this story. Its so completely different from the normal mafia romances. This one is tough and gritty. But, there’s also some really sweet and definitely some sexy! It was great! I love how Bella can tell a story even if it is one out of her comfort zone. Just proves why shes a bad ass writer!
