Dark, intense beginning of a series about members of the mafia. Novella setting up the characters and the attraction between the MCs. I'm not usually a fan of reading about criminals still doing crime but this book pulled me right in. The scene setting is fabulous. Makes you feel like you are right there with the characters (even though I wouldn't want to be!). Since it's the start of a series, can only rate on what I've read so far. This is a very dark story, though, so will be interesting to see how the series advances. Beautiful book cover.
Warning: For those who want to know...there's a scene that is dubious consent, a scene with rough sex and one of the MCs is married. Although no sex happens with the married MC in this volume, the attraction, thoughts and intent are there for the future.
