Yeesh!!! This is book one of a series and the world building in this story was amazing. I felt for the m/c almost instantly and the things she has to deal with, wow – just wow.
There is so much that goes on in this story. It’s layered in such a way that it keeps getting more and more intense as the story unfolds. It’s like veils being lowered again and again making things even darker and murkier. This is a very dark and twisted “mafia” story and while some of it is incredibly cliche’, some of it is original and unique. The relationship between the female protagonist and her bff cousin is the most realistic relationship in the story. They both broke my heart just a little bit.
I did enjoy reading this story and look forward to reading more in the series to see if anyone gets their HEA.
