I’m on the fence with this one, as you know I am a huge fan of the Mafia genre and have read many, many fictional books covering this subject. This one seemed a little tame in terms of Alessandro’s input to the story. It seemed that all the violence and blood centred around Livi. Or Lou. Or Olivia. Or Lulu. I really don’t know which name to use for the main character as she was referred to the four I’ve just mentioned. For arguments sake I’m going to go with Olivia. Anyway, it all revolved around her and the fact that she isn’t really involved with the family kind of took that Mafia thread and tamed it a little for me. We find a man that has taken over his father’s empire in a way he never wanted yet he doesn’t fit that mold. Although it becomes obvious why when you get further into the book I really wanted those gory details that normally come with the Mafia Kings. I felt short changed. Olivia is this scared little girl who never really seems to grow into herself, sent away when her step father died but still hopelessly in love with the very man who did that to her.
The story starts off with a brutal bang as we find Olivia in a situation she can’t run from, no matter how far she runs. She turns to Alex, which in unravels a whole ugly can of worms. I found it a little weird that Olivias indiscretions were constantly mentioned but never Alex’s. Surely he would have many? It’s a hopeless situation, and you realise that very quickly. We have Regan who is something to Alex yet she comes across as if she knows far more than she lets on, I do think she is yet to play her hand and It isn’t going to be pretty. Then we have Tiny, I can’t get a handle on him yet but I do think that’s the whole point of Tiny.Read more ›
Alex was without a doubt my favourite part of the whole book. His love and devotion for Lou grew stronger and stronger from the moment he first met her as a twelve year old girl. The things he was willing to do, endure and sacrifice for either her happiness or her well being could be heartbreaking at times and through the frustration of not always fully understanding his actions it was impossible not to see that everything he did, every choice he was being forced to make was for her benefit whether she ever realises it or not. At times I couldn't understand why he didn't just open up and tell her everything but I think that his reasoning for that may hopefully come to light in book two.
“I love you,” she whispered. My heart contracted. She was mine… and she would be mine forever. I took her face between my hands, pressing my forehead against hers and looking into her eyes.Read more ›
I was engrossed from the early (quite literal) explosion of Drama - G.K. Moore really captured me with only the first page! Intrigued and eager to know more I was reading and turning pages without realising hours had passed me by.
When the dynamics of the relationship between the two main characters Olivia and Alessandro unfold with a combination of past and present events we are given a glimpse into their deep connection - the back story a necessity to help us fall for Alessandro and Olivia. With a combination of action packed drama and the push and pull of the hot and steamy, sometimes combustible romance we are left hanging on the edge of our seat throughout!
Olivia/Livi/Lou/Lou-Lou was a tad annoying at times with her false bravado and accidental kickass moments but I feel that this should be forgiven as within her flashback moments I really felt for her and began to understand the workings of her character more.
Alessandro took me a little while before I warmed up to him, although initially quite aloof, between his conflicting actions, obvious internal battles and the insight of past and present versions of himself I was so #TeamAlex! Hot, protective and badass - who wouldn’t be?
I loved the relationship he had with Tiny and would have liked to read more about their antics as they grew up.
The story was told in fascinating detail and I was definitely left with questions I wanted answered.Read more ›
