REVIEW: 5 STARS
Natasha Knight brings her readers another sexy and suspenseful mafia romance with Giovanni. Intensely emotional and filled with deliciously hot sex, Giovanni and Emilia's story was one that I did not want to put down. A sexy mobster and a damaged girl with a painful past clash together in this powerful story of unexpected love.
"He's a powerful man. A ruthless one. One more dangerous than any I've battled before."
The characters of this story were so complex and intriguing. Knight created such an amazing anti-hero in Giovanni, man who was ruthless and violent, yet he charming and moral in his own way. I loved the single-minded want he had for Emilia, and his determinedness to have her. He ruled when it came to business, and ruled just as mercilessly in the bedroom. Emilia is someone with a devastating past that she is trying to run from. She tries to fight Giovanni while simultaneously fighting her feelings for him, and it resulted in some great scenes between them. The enemies-to-lovers theme was done so well, with the characters towing the line between hate and lust in the most captivating ways. The sex between Giovanni and Emilia was intense and edgy. I loved never knowing what would come of their interactions. The fire between them was real and so strong. It was the catalyst that forged the amazing bond that they eventually developed. Knight made their relationship a believable one, using the pain of their individual pasts to create an unbreakable connection.
"How many times do I have to come after you for you to see that I'm not going to let you go?"
The storyline was well-balanced with romance and suspense, with the mafia elements brilliantly done. The twists and secrets added depth to the story and made it completely engaging. Seeing some of the characters from the previous books was just an added bonus. I love Knight's mafia stories and look forward to reading more of them in the future.
