A DARK MAFIA ROMANCE
"Perversely hot, gritty, and richly textured, Valentina and Gabriel's story is one of the best dark romances I've read." –– Anna Zaires, New York Times bestselling author of Twist Me
I’m a loan shark. Breaking people is in my blood. The Haynes’s were supposed to be a straightforward job. Go in and pull the trigger twice. One bullet for Charlie, one for his sister. But when I saw Valentina, I wanted her. Only, in our world, those who owe us don’t get second chances. No way in hell will my mother let her live. So I devised a plan to keep her.
Just like her.
(DUBIOUS is the first full-length novel in a two-part duet and ends on a cliffhanger. The second book, CONSENT, is available.)
