I will admit that I didn't enjoy this as much as the previous two. I've raced through Marita's other books in about a day, this one I was much slower with. I think it was because I LOVE Sledge and Corey. I think they are so cute but we only really get one hot scene at the start which is amazing! Obviously if Corey had not ended up being drugged by Ant there wouldn't be much of a story but I just wanted more scenes with them alone.
Found myself getting wound up with Dante, Kara and Beth. I don't like Kara at all! I'm not keen on Beth either. Actually think Dante could do with some alone time! Their bitch fighting was getting on my nerves and it pissed me off how much Kara was having a go a Beth for basically being scared about dying. Give the girl a break! I loved the idea that Dante didn't know he was being filmed and I loved Jade. Maybe Dante should end up with Jade.....I enjoyed that bit of the book ;) All the sex scenes were pretty top notch. You can't fault Marita for that. The girl can write sex!
More Nike in this book which was good. Bit worried about what will happen to him in the next box. I guess the police are all over Craven's operation and he was a bit trigger happy. Still no sign of Jess though :(
Major bombshell dropped at the end of this book which might make life much more difficult for Dante. Overall I didn't love this book as much as the first two but I'm still excited for more in the series.
Where do I start..
Dante of course
As most of the story is about him this time...
He is a sex God, everyone wants a piece of him... women, men. His issues are still there and we get to find out more about him and what could be behind those issues..Yes I love Dante!!
Ash and Dante have decided to leave working for local gangster Craven.
Dante knows getting another job is going to be harder then it looks.
Leaving Craven is going to be harder too, as Craven has other ideas.
Ideas that involve Dante.
Kara, Dante's Ex returns back into his life and she still loves him, she really loves him. She is a strong character and fierce and will stop at nothing to get him back again, but at the end of the day she is working for Craven and Craven has brought her back for a reason, so he will decide in the end.
Beth loves him too, she is not as strong as Kara, she has no intention of letting him go, but Craven has plans of his own involving her.
Everything about this story was fantastic, the characters draw you in and you find yourself caring, feeling. Its fast paced. With dark undertones at times that leave you holding your breath. Whilst every now and then a smart comment would come out of these fantastic characters to make you smile.. I say characters... yes they are all very unique in their own way.
Please Marita don't stop with this series.. I loved it

What really makes this series though, are the multi-dimensional characters. I’ve gone through a range of different emotions with these characters, and I flip-flop back and forth with some. Regardless of whether I love or hate them, I do so intensely! I can't wait to learn more about some of the characters in future books.
Seriously, the suspense, the action, the drama and even the sex is turned up a thousand notches in this book. And the reason being? Mister Dante Rata takes center stage. A model-esque bad boy with plenty of demons who catches the eye of pretty much everyone in South Auckland. The story pretty much revolves around him and an underground pornography ring that he accidentally gets thrown into. But the story doesn't stop there. There's also people getting drugged and kidnapped, the creepiest father-son duo of villains you'll ever meet, a psychotic ex who's trying to get in the way of Dante and Beth’s new formed relationship, and a Russian Roulette game that will have you on the edge of your seat, or in my case, on the floor rocking back and forth in a dark corner in tears. Nah, just kidding.
There's also a wide array of interesting characters that will appeal to EVERYONE. A cast so huge, yet you'll remember everyone's name, story and what makes them special even after you've reached the end.
Did I mention this book is HUGE?! Well it is! And the cool thing about it is, the author has a way of gluing your eyes to that kindle and swiping away at those pages, you'll be done with it in a matter of hours!
Other random thoughts:
It's hard to review a book without giving away any spoilers, so I'll keep it vague.
I HATE Ant Torres!! And if you've read Graffiti Heaven, you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. He's grown now and one of the most disgusting villains in the whole series, right up there along with Chaz and Craven. The things he does in this book are unforgivable. He made me cringe so hard, it actually caused me physical pain.
I've also had a change of heart about Beth. Yeah I know, she was annoying as hell in Behind The Tears and she's done some pretty bad things in the past (haven't we all?), but once you meet Dante's ex Kara, you'll see that Beth's actually not that bad. You'll even see the fighter in her and how much she really cares for Dante. I can proudly say that by the end of the book, I ship Dante and Beth! And Kara can go burn in hell!
A blast from the past:
While this book has a lot of new characters (my favorite being Saul) you'll also see some old favorites making cameos in a really cool way. Tama, Nike, and my favorite chick of all-frikin-time, Jenna Hamilton. Though her appearance was the shortest, I can't wait to see what's coming up for her in the future now that we know she's a MMA Fighter and “romantically” linked to Tama. (Whoops, SPOILER ALERT. My bad.)
So in conclusion, this book is totally kickass and FILLED with culture that I really advise you to give it a try! Even if it's too edgy or a bit out of your comfort zone, take a chance and I promise that you won't regret it! :)
Dante, ah where to begin. I hate the expression sex on a stick but it seems right when referring to him. He is so damaged and used, poor guy just wants to be loved for who he is. There isn't anything he won't do for his family. That is clear by this book.
Beth, eh she is so wishy washy. And the return of Kara...
The ending was a little cliffy for me.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good fast paced drama.
