This is the first book in The Boys of Sinners Bay series which can be read as a standalone.
“If she sleeps in my bed every night, she’ll end up falling in love with me…and that’ll be awkward as hell when I have to kill her.”
He’s my twisted nightmare.
My blood bound enemy.
My ruthless desire.
Our fates were spun the night he tried to kill me and now he’s back to destroy me for good.
It’s always been us versus them. The Calabresis against the Romeros.
This city is ours but they vowed to take it from us. And when they couldn’t, they took me instead.
Now I’m chained by the cruellest of them all; the man who wrapped his hands around my throat and tried to squeeze the life from me all those years ago.
But I won’t fall prey to him. I’m older, fiercer and I’ve grown claws of my own.
Rocco Romero thinks he can keep me captive, but he’s about to regret bringing a sleeping tiger into his home.
She’s my greatest failure.
The name that always haunts me.
My dirty little secret.
And when I had the chance to kidnap her from her wedding, nothing on God’s green earth could stop me.
She’s mine. I could take her life, her body or her heart if I wanted to.
But my brothers refuse to believe me.
So when they bet I can’t make the little principessa fall in love with me, of course I step up to the challenge.
And when she’s down on her knees, pouring her heart out, I’ll crush it in my fist.
I’m lining the Calabresis up like dominoes. And she’ll be the first to fall.
This book was a little outside of my normal reading genre, but I actually thoroughly enjoyed it.
The characters are great, the storyline was great and the plot developed at a good pace.
Sloan was a great character. She started out being pretty helpless and naive, but developed into a strong character.
Rocco was also a brilliant character. He really was harsh to begin with. He’s a complete stronzo, a total ass, and he completly owns it.
I loved the character development that Sloan and Rocco each had. Their relationship was an interesting one, both of them hating each other until they didn’t. I loved the exchanges between them, and enjoyed watching them grow. Ultimately, their relationship grew to be on fire.
Nicoli was an interesting character. I didn’t like him to begin with and found him to be a little selfish and possessive, until the end when he actually listened to her and let her to make her own choice.
Frankie and Enzo were also great characters, and the addition with Coco was also great.
It was a good change to read a book with no cliffhanger by our Celestial Authors.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book, and I’m looking forward to the next one. I would definitely recommend it.
My rating: 5/5*
