Leona was raised by two dysfunctional parents one addicted to drugs the other addicted to gambling a bad combination, a loveless upbringing. 

They met by chance..On a rainy day she's new to the city and he's the man that picks her up, she knows nothing about the man she sat beside as he drove her to a rough part of Las Vegas where she's currently living with her estranged father because her mother is back in rehab. 

All she saw was a young guy in his twenties wearing a nice suit and driving a flash car, all he saw was a poor girl in shabby clothes and a backpack. But she'd caught his attention as soon as his eyes landed on her. 

There's something about her that has Fabinano wanting to protect her, he can't stay away from her, but will she run in the other direction when she finds out what he is? Who he is? 

A cage fighter that hones his skill, death matches that keeps the fear in people's eyes, they owned the town, they controlled the nightclubs, bars, restaurants and casinos, from cage fighting to street racing they had their hands in everything. 


but not in begging for mercy there was honor in death

What happens when your loyalty is questioned as Fabiano finds out in this book, when a female has him all twisted up and divided who does he remain the most loyal to? The girl that crawled under his skin or his brothers? The poor little waitress and he, the big deal mobster. 

I have been on such a good run of 5 star after 5 star reading new to me authors and this one is no exception. I loved this one, add in it's surrounded in the mafia world I was not going to say no to reading it, straight away the author pulled me into the story, it flowed ceaselessly, I connected to the characters, and absolutely fell in love with them, she was sweet and innocent and he was a ruthless killer with many kills under his belt, they should never have worked but they did perfectly. I devoured this, just enough blood and gore, which ticked my box, and the slow burn of their romance had me not wanting their journey to end. I am so glad I took the chance to read this book. Highly recommend.
