This was my first time reading I.A Dice's work and this re-release of her debut book was an incredible place to start. I loved it!
I am a huge fan of mafia romance, and this didn't disappoint. I went into this one blind, and I was not expecting such a wild ride. And that ending, wow I definitely didn't see that one coming. I.A has written such an engaging, all-consuming read that will have you on the edge of your seat.
I loved the instant attraction both Dante and Layla had. Normally I'm more of a fan of things progressing slowly but these two were 0-100 in a flash and I was totally cheering from the sidelines. Dante is the epitome of possessive alpha and I.A wrote him to perfection... where do I find my own? And Layla was the perfect mix of kind, feisty, naive, and tough when she needed to be, and I couldn't get enough of their interactions together. They are the ultimate ride or die, and I absolutely can't wait to see how things evolve in book 2, I have a feeling it's going to be a bumpy ride.
If you love a dangerous mafia world, an overprotective hero, a super sassy heroine, instant chemistry, betrayal, love, and plenty of twists and turns then give this one a go.
