Summary

Alessio....

Cold. Ruthless. Killer. I am respected and feared by all.

I wasn’t put on this earth to love or be loved. I was put here to wipe out every last member of the damn Abandonato mafia, to pay them back for my mother’s death.

When I find a strange girl hiding, beaten, under my bed, I don’t let her live out of compassion. She’s a trinket, my plaything.

Ayla....

I thought Alessio was only one more man who wanted to use me, hurt me, and throw me away. I don’t know what it is to trust anymore. I can’t find my heart under the pain.

Alessio found it. He touched it and brought it alive again. But if he discovers just how dangerous I am to him.... I’ll lose my life.

Good Start To A Series

Lylah James brings us a very intriguing, enthralling, exciting, gripping story that centers around Alessio and Ayla. Each with their own part to play in the criminal underworld. From warring mafia families - He's the leader of the Russians, her father is the leader of the Italians. In her attempt to escape the Hell that had become her life, she inadvertently finds solace within Alessio's home. Her lies keep her alive, but they gnaw at her conscious the closer she gets with her "boss." Her past, her fear, her will to live all become tested when she begins to open herself up, and fall in love with the Brava lord. He's drawn to her, her vulnerability, and even her walls. He wants to crash them all down and get her into his bed. Lines start to blur when he realizes just how much he wants her to stay there.
This was a good book. It was well written, and had me on the edge of my seat. This being a dark romance, you expect some uncomfortable situations. And that's where I struggled with my rating on this book. Story-line, characters, everything - It could have been a 5 star listen.

What is with so many characters names starting with Alessio, Alberto, Alfredo, Ayla, Artur, Angel too much already. Also, I found myself disappointed. Her happiness is tainted a LOT by her past. I understand it, completely. I just felt myself longing for more. And it actually is the reason why I'm so eager to read book 2.

Tia Rider Sorensen was good with the delivery of the story

So so long

This is a good book that could have been done in half the time. It’s the book that just won’t end. 11 hours and no sex scenes omg. They could seriously fit the whole trilogy into this one book it was so so long. I think they’re a lot better books out there but it was not a complete waste of time

Lots of heartache and angst

Had I know how much angst and heartache is involved in this novel, I would not have started it. It’s not that it’s not well written, it’s that when the novel has constant angst and negative emotions, it tends to just depress me. However, now that I have started this trilogy and become invested in the characters, I need to see it through in order to reach the , hopefully, the resolution. If I don’t, it will just stick with me in a negative way. So my advice is this, if you are a sensitive person that tends to get emotionally invested in a book, if you plan to have productive days and don’t want swollen eyes, you might want to skip this series. This is exactly why I stopped reading Danelle Steele’s books. I don’t mind emotional ups and downs but a long term down just ruins the escapism of the book, for me.

might be a good story, but...

the narrator is aweful! robotic and truly horrible to listen to. Even my husband commented on how bad the narrator was when I was listening to it thru a speaker. I did force myself to listen to the whole thing and now I am debating on whether or not to finish the trilogy. (probably not gonna)

slow going..

this story seems to be dragging on.. a lot of details ..the narration seems a little off base to me. There is a lot of potential here but having trouble getting to it.

Captured by the storyline...

Once you start this title you get ensnared by the characters and whatever they have going on. I was not impressed with the narrative; however, I did want to know how things would play out.
