Oh. My. God. What a ride!!! I don’t think I caught my breath once I started. It was one thing after another and trust me just when you think you know what’s gonna happen, Bam! something else happens. This story was just epic. Talia and Kostas… perfection.
Kostas is the perfect mob boss. Strong. Ruthless. Evil. Vile. And one sexy sexy as hell mofo! He makes no apologies for what he has to do. He’s strong, commanding, and in charge at all times. Well, unless you’re his wife then he is a big ol softy. Talia, is exactly what Kostas needs and he knows it. He knows she’s his weakness and he doesn’t play nice with those who try to take what’s his. So when his wife ends up missing at the end of book one…. he’s out for blood.
This story had everything you want in a book. Drama. Mystery. Angst. Sex. Hot dirty talking man. Beautiful strong woman.
I love the Greek Mythology that was woven into the story. And I love pomegranates and often eat them, so when I saw the fruit referenced while enjoying a bowl, I knew this book was something magical. Plus, they look like tiny red jewels and make you feel fancy! Anywho, I digress.
I read this book in one sitting, there was no stopping this crazy train once it started. I was sorry to see it end and I pray they keep going on this world. There were some amazing secondary characters in this series. You need to meet Kostas and Talia, trust me you will be glad you did.
