The ride, by the way, was amazing. I kept thinking something was going to happen and split up the main MCs but it became clear that despite the world they lived in and the life they led, you could feel their emotions and the dislike turning to ....... (No spoilers!).
Suffice to say Seth and Dom really grew on me. I read in someone else's review that they got under the readers skin and it's true. In fact, that's the best way to describe them, their world and their relationship. It felt like it became a part of me, or me them but it was amazing.
I would definitely recommend this book and personally can't wait to get started on book 2. I will add though that this is raw and dark and at times just plain crude, which was fine by me but what it says in the book overview is true. Brilliant as it is dont read it if you get upset or offended easily cos you won't enjoy it and probably won't finish it. If this is the case and you consequently leave a bad review, it would be such a shame as this is 5* all the way and deserves more not less praise.
I hope you do give it a go and enjoy it as I did cos it is really worth it and I think K&A did a fantastic job. The only thing I might say to them is that, I'm glad I don't have their imagination cos although it is off the charts hot hot hot, it is also scarily dark at times!
Quick note to the authors and their support team. There are a number of writing/typing errors which should have been picked up during proofing. Not enough in quantity or bad enough in quality to spoil my enjoyment of the book and I'm a stickler for quality issues but, it would be overall a more polished package if they are resolved.
warning! if you are not a fan of M/M romance, explicit sex scenes and some really dark mafia themes, this book isn't for you. if you are a fan of all these, why haven't you read this yet?
Seth and Dom are two fantastic characters, unique in themselves and weirdly well suited to one another.
Seth is to become the next head of the Family, his brother, for some unknown reason, having been passed over for the position. But Seth just isn't ready for it, having avoided most of the Family business for several years, and basically hiding out with his boyfriend. but when he is kidnapped, he is pulled back into the world and forced to take up his role. He's wholly unprepared, and so Dom, a favourite of the Family and a sort of childhood friend of Seth, is tasked with training him up. Of course, Dom cannot keep his hands off of Seth, and Seth reluctantly ends up letting him have his way. repeatedly.
the main aspect of this book is the incredibly well-written sex scenes. Merikan is just the best m/m author when such things are concerned. however, the dark story of Seth's training and Dom's heartless reactions to what they must do weaves a great story to follow through this book and presumably into the books beyond. the story perhaps falls by the wayside a tad, but at the same time, it's always there, and important to the book.
the characters themselves are pretty dark. unlike most stories, they are not pure and not the 'good guys'. Dom especially has done some terrible things and seems pretty calm when breaking someone's neck. Seth is slow to accept this world, and even towards the end is still struggling greatly with what he is meant to be doing for the Family.
Your reaction is to love the characters, they are well-written and obviously the stars of the book. but as you read you constantly get the reminder that actually, these aren't such good guys. they ARE, after all, members of the Mafia, and they are doing some very dark, cruel things. the book is a bit of a mind-bender, constantly causing you to fight with your own brain as to what is 'good' in this world.
overall, it's brilliant. I finished this book and purchased the second right away. well worth a read!
