Chevelley and Xavier grew up in the underworld, where a life or crime and violence was normal to them. It was at 18 that Chevelley and Xavier first realised their feelings for each other and started a relationship. But this was short lived as a series of events (that later unfold) wreck their chances of being together. The main plot is essentially a romance but unlike one I have read before. It had me second guessing right to the final chapters.
I liked the main characters, they had been to hell and back losing family and close friends. They hadn't chosen this lifestyle, they were born into it so knew nothing else. Chevelley was a strong female who put herself on the line for those she loved but it was when she was around Xavier that her true strength came out. Xavier, well what a beautiful man on the inside and outside. What he did he did for love and justice.
The supporting characters featured heavily in this story and were very well written and developed, I felt like I knew each of their personalities.
This was told from Chevelley's POV and did include flashbacks to the past to fill us in on what happened to them and how they originally got together, I really enjoyed this element to the story.
This is a refreshing change to a lot of 'romance' books that are released and I would definitely recommend it.
I'll be honest with you, this book has some good things, but it also has some problems. I'm not exactly a crime lord, but even I can tell that the book does not depict the criminal life realistically. Terrible things happen in this book, but no cops are ever seen. People commit mass murder with no consequences whatsoever.
However, that said, some of the characters are interesting, especially Xavier, the male lead. I kind of wish we got more of his story. He gave up everything for the one he loved, and I wanted to feel that sacrifice more. I'd love to learn more about his time with Roman, the bad guy in the book.
Chevelley is the female lead, and she is interesting, but again, not very realistic. She is supposed to be the leader of this group of rough and tumble men, but she's only 26 years old. Her father was the leader, and made her a boss before his sudden disappearance. I found it a bit unbelievable that these men would follow her. She seemed very impulsive and emotional at times. Yes, she's tough, and not afraid to use force when necessary, but I still don't think these men would just fall in line behind her.
The romantic relationship between Chevelley and Xavier was nearly nonexistent at first, except for a few flashbacks. For most of the book they are on opposite sides of the "War". But when it does finally kick into gear, it's very hot and sexy.
There are some exciting nail biting moments, and I really enjoyed them, even if they were unrealistic. I guess the point here is to not expect a criminal documentary. This is a fantasy depiction of the criminal life. If you can keep that straight going in, then you'll probably be fine.
The book is fully self-contained, no cliffhanger ending to worry about. I say give it a try if you just want a little fantasy crime with your romance.
OMG Wow! This book is one intense, thrill ride of drama, suspense and a whole lot of lust! This is my first book by Isabel Lucero but I doubt it'll be my last now!
Chevelley is the daughter of Memphis Reed the big boss of a feared illegal group who protect their client's and their businesses by any means possible. When Memphis goes missing and is presumed dead Chevelley takes his place. The only woman amongst a group of big intimidating guys she's worked hard to earn their respect and considers them all her brothers.
Before his death events were unfolding that would change the course of all of their lives. There were lies and betrayals which left them reeling. And at the heart of it all? Roman Rios.
Roman is a very dangerous man - if you want to stay alive you learn to never trust nor betray him. Chevelley has managed to keep her business and boys away from him...until now. With Roman determined to steal her business, a war is brewing and it's Chevelley's job to keep her boys safe. But there's one problem.
Once upon a time Xavier meant everything to her, she loved him unconditionally and couldn't have been happier. But after his father's death, he changed. He pushed her away and betrayed her in the worst possible way - he joined Roman's crew.
Now Roman's number 2, Xavier has done terrible things and Chevelley can barely recognise him anymore. When war breaks out between their crews, Chevelley knows that they will undoubtedly come face to face. But will she be able to protect her crew and do what ever it takes to win this war - even if it means killing Xavier?Read more ›
