We were on the front lines in that world, the mafia world.
There was nothing soft or glamorous about it.
Who you were before no longer mattered. Names didn’t exist.
I joined anyway. I had no other choice because they took my sister. Join. Find her. Try and make it out alive.
Then he won me in a poker game.
I hated him instantly, thinking he was like my other bosses before him.
He wasn’t. He was worse.
He wasn’t just cold. He was dead inside. It didn’t matter that he was gorgeous.
He was the most lethal thing I’d ever met.
He was also the only person who could keep me alive, if he didn’t kill me himself.
A/N This is a 102k mafia/cartel standalone.
This is the most violent book Tijan has ever written.
Trigger warning: references to sexual violence

4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
Oh my gosh, this book was definitely one that will keep your attention focused solely on the book from beginning to end. Just when you think things have calmed down, BAM, something else happens and you're sitting at the edge of your seat practically biting your nails waiting to see what else is going to happen.
I don't want to divulge what the book is about because I wouldn't want to ruin it for anyone, all I can say is you need to go all in and prepare yourself to be immersed in this world full of violence, death and moments that will make your jaw drop.
Tijan has been one of my favorite authors and every time I see she's coming out with a new book, I try and get my hands on it because I already know that I have to prepare myself to fall in love with her words.
If you are a fan of mafia, make sure you read this one because I guarantee you that you will be hooked from beginning to end, if you are okay with the triggers like the ones this book has. BUT IT WAS GREAT!
