Freedom and a meaningful life away from the violence of the Trassato Crime Family is all I ever wanted…

But what I want doesn’t matter now that I’m caught in a tug of war between two men in the dangerous world of organized crime.

Marcello Masciantonio is the man my father expects me to marry. He wants me because I’m the daughter of Dominick Trassato, New York’s most powerful crime boss. He says he’s my future, and I want to hate him, but I can’t deny the spark that burns between us. 

Salvatore D’Amico is perfect. He supports me. He understands me. He’s willing to betray my father and give up his family to have me. He doesn’t care about the power that comes with being part of my family. He wants me for me. 

My choice is simple, right? 


Everyone has an agenda, including Salvatore and Marcello, and just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize I don’t know a damn thing. 

Truths are lies. Freedom is lonely. But worst of all…

My love triangle is actually a hate triangle.

First off, I LOVE Lisa Cardiff books! I started reading her Vegas Cartel series (if you haven’t read it? GO DO IT!!!) and fell. She can write the hell out of a mafia book. Plus all the different languages and bilingual terms of endearment ❤ ❤ .  
Granted, most might find the whole killing/robbing for hire, etc distasteful but you still love the characters. Typically, they’re the people who want to get out of the life or have a conscientious about it.  
Now on to Emilia. Oh Emilia. She didn’t want to be the head of the Italian mafia’s daughter and she certainly does not want to have an arranged marriage with a man who she’s never met and only wants to expand his mafia power. She’s locked away in her father’s house, no longer allowed to go to her only form of sanity, piano lessons. She’s escorted everywhere by Sal, hot captain under her father who is attracted to her. But then there’s Marcello, the man she’s promised to, who revs her engine too. She just doesn’t know who or what she can trust.  
Ends on a cliffhanger – of sorts – but it is part 1. So now I need Part 2 STAT!!! I got wrapped up in Emilia’s story (possibly reading at work…) and now I need the rest!!
5 stars! 
After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.
