Cam and Adriano are so perfect together. They are each others weakness as well as each others strength. Reading their story was so entertaining and so hot, making this book the perfect winter read…
“When we’re apart, neither of us is whole. But together, we blossom. Our bond has proven to be unbreakable by any force.”
In this book Adriano and Cam are both trying to deal with their new identities; him as the new Mafia Boss and Cam as the daughter of the former Capo. The crime life is full of danger and threats for the both of them so they look for solace in each other’s arms. When they are between the sheets their love ignites , and keeps all the darkness away.
Cam is a very strong female character and I loved her for it. She was born to play the role next to her man as Capo, even if she had to defy him a few times. Her passionate personality drives Adriano crazy with love and sometimes with frustration, but no other woman can compare to his Cam. She owns him, heart and soul.
Adriano knows he needs to be ruthless in order to be the best boss he can be. He and Luca are running the new underground club and all the events with the previous owner have set in motion a very dangerous war where no one is safe and the two best friends, Adriano and Luca are willing to do everything to protect their loved ones.
Chapter after chapter Soraya Naomi delivers an action packed story where you barely have time to breathe. So many twists and turns, nothing about this novel was predictable. The writing style was so beautiful ,each word was bleeding intense emotion into the pages of this book, making you feel as if you were center stage to everything that was going on inside the story.
Most of all, I really loved the epilogue, because I’m not going to lie, there were a few times times that I had my doubts about whether Cam and Adriano were going to make it. The author really kept me guessing , but then she gifted the reader with a really beautiful ending that was the perfect seal for this very fervent couple.
I’m not usually one to love these Mafia themed books but Soraya Naomi has turned me into a big fan of the Chicago Syndicate series. Definitely a must read for those looking for both thrill and hot romance in a story.
