Her teen crush is now a ruthless killer and powerful mafia heir. Will one life-altering night unite or destroy them?

Bennett Mazzone grew up ignorant of the truth: he is the illegitimate son of the most powerful mafia boss in New York. Until it suited his father to drag him into a world where power, wealth, violence, and cruelty are the only currency.

Celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Sin City should be fun for Sierra Lawson, but events take a deadly turn when she ends up in a private club, surrounded by dangerous men who always get what they want.

And they want her.

Ben can’t believe his ex’s little sister is all grown up, stunningly beautiful, and close to being devoured by some of the most ruthless men he has ever known. The Vegas trip is about strengthening ties, but he won’t allow his associates to ruin her perfection. Although it comes at a high price, saving Sierra is his only choice.

The memory of Ben’s hands on her body is seared into Sierra’s flesh for eternity. She doesn’t regret that night. Not even when she discovers the guy she was crushing on as a teenager is a cold, calculating killer with dark impulses and lethal enemies who want him dead.

Understanding the risks, she walks away from the only man she will ever love, stowing her secrets securely in her heart. Until the truth becomes leverage and Sierra is drawn into a bloody war—a pawn in a vicious game she doesn’t want to play.

As the web of deceit is finally revealed, Ben will stop at nothing to protect Sierra. Even if loving her makes him weak. In a world where women serve a sole purpose, and alliances mean the difference between life and death, can he fight for love and win?


I hadn't read a dark romance in a while, so I was pretty excited to get into this one. It was quit good, but it wasn't as dark as I hoped, but it was still quite enjoyable. I was looking forward to seeing how Sierra would go with her teen crush.

I must admit, the beginning of this book had me in suspense! When Sierra went to celebrate her birthday and wound up in the back of a club had me holding my breath! I was annoyed with one of her friends, she was very careless, but I loved that strong side to Sierra!

Bennett appeared to be cold hearted, as he had stepped up into his role and had to appear heartless, but didn’t quite pull it off the way he hoped. I liked how gentle he was at times, but he could be fierce as well, and he became quite possessive of Sierra.

There were a few characters that annoyed me and I wished that we didn't have to see them so much; one of her sisters was so self absorbed! The book wrapped up quite quickly, where I felt like I didn't know where to look! I look forward to more books from this world.

Here are a couple moments from Bennett's perspective, his possessiveness and his kindness...

“They’re the same age. She’s beautiful. He lives like a monk. Now you’ve thrust them together, and they’ll be spending a ton of time with each other.” He shrugs.
“She is going to be my wife,” I hiss, shoving the smaller box at his chest. “And if he can’t keep his dick in his pants, I’ll chop it off and solve the problem.”
“Wow. She really has you all worked up.”
