Author: A. Zavarelli
Release Date: May 19, 2016
My Stars: 5,
I waited and waited for this book to come out, and here I am just now getting my review written… I mean seriously life couldn’t be that busy right?
I’m just going to say it this book held me hostage, I read it in one sitting, I mean totally engaged from page one to the last page. I loved the way the author writes, she has such flow and continuity in her books, I don’t feel like I’m skipping around in the story.
Ok, who doesn’t love a mafia love story, This book had it all, mafia…. check, suspense….check, romance…check, it had it all.
Ronan/ Reaper Ms. Zavarelli was able to show his “Reaper” side, What he was raised to be… But, at the same time was able to show his “Ronan” side in an almost child-like quality of how he was raised. He suffered from what he was raised to be, and was unable to trust himself to be around people. He watched Sasha from afar for years, and protected her and considered her, his. He finally find the courage to trust himself with Sasha.
Sasha who has sacrificed everything for her family, That is how she ended up working as a dancer at the Syndicates club. It is how she finds herself in a series of abusive relationships, which Reaper protects her from. That is when she falls from Ronan/ Reaper and he already fallen for her, he just doesn’t know how to react to those feelings. When they finally get together Ronan helps Sasha regain a little of what she has lost, and she helps him to trust himself.
One thing about Ms. Zavarelli’s writing, she is so engaging I think what makes that so is that she is so descriptive it’s like you are there. This is the 2nd book that I have read in this series and I’m so hooked now I am waiting for book 3, which I heard should be out sometime in August.. I guess I’m going to have to back to stalking her facebook page so I can get it right when it comes out. She is truly great to read.
