This book promised to be right up my alley with all my tropes lined up like little soldiers. I enjoyed the story, thought it moved along nicely and was well written but just wasn’t feeling the chemistry I was hoping for between Gregorio and Alessandra.
Gregorio was dark and dangerous in my mind and exuded sexiness. He was faithful to Alessandra as soon as he identified her as his and he waited a long time. It could have been creepy that he fixated on her when she was at a young age, but the author addressed that head on so crisis diverted.
Alessandra was kind of a princess but didn’t see herself as one; classic. Her inability to connect the dots of the lives lived around her kind of activated my annoyance and I had a hard time shedding it as the story progressed.
There was a lot going on in the background throughout the story and the reader was left dangling ever so slightly. My interest is piqued so I’ll be on the lookout for the next book.
Gregorio Bosco worked his way up the ranks of The Family. He never had trouble killing, selling, or anything he was tasked to do. He'd been trained to take over for Giovanni when he stepped down, but that all changed when Alessandra was taken. She was the only good in his life, and he'd do anything in order to protect her—no matter the cost to anyone around him.
Alessandra Morello was born into a life that she didn’t understand. She thought she was the daughter of a wealthy industrialist, however she learned it was far from the truth. She's pulled into the center of a war with Gregorio as her only constant. Her attraction for the older man has only grown over the years, but can there be a future for them in their twisted world?
