Listen, I have read hundreds of mafia books at this point. From general mafia romances, all the way to the darkest pits of hell mafia romances - and having said that...the 1-star reviews in the US site really hit the nail on the head with this book. Here's my 2 cents, anyway.
The beginning of the book was actually great. I got sucked into the story so quickly, I was committed...what the H did, god he ruined her. It was the perfect set up for an incredible story. I was almost howling with anger, I wanted vengeance and I wanted the h to get her vengeance. Even the first time they -do- it, it stoked my rage even higher...YESSSS I was getting so hyped. I wanted to see him BURN and I was freaking excited to see how the author would handle him trying to crawl out of the ashes. Turns out, all the h needed was the second time they had s*x and for him to give her org*asms. Looking back on it, it was the beginning of the end, for me. The h began softening after a MONTH, ****LARGE SPOILER HERE**** despite her new husband slaughtering her little brother, her father and her soulmate/fiance ON their wedding day. ANY h who is easily wooed by a man's eggplant and a few O's after said man decimated her family...nope. Pass. Not interested. I was so unbelievably frustrated by 51% that not only was I desperately holding out hope that the author was going to surprise us and uncover that the h had been laying in wait and just luring the reader into a false sense of security but I had also simultaneously started to not give a sh*t about the characters or the story. As soon as the H told her he wanted to name their child after her father, y'know...the one he slaughtered in cold blood and SHE DIDNT EVEN BLINK AN EYE AT THE AUDACITY, I was DONE. She doesn't even mourn her father or little brother through the book, like come on.
