Rome Armanelli is supposed to be a monster—an enforcer for the strongest family in the Italian Mafia.
Yet, when I saw him take a man’s life, he did it to save mine. Since then, Rome doesn’t want me anywhere near him. Sparks may fly when we’re in the same room, but his famiglia is all he cares about.
He tells me to leave, but he, of all people, should know—the Mafia doesn’t let anyone go. Blood, ties, and partnerships sink their claws in. And when we find out exactly why his family kept me around, there’s no turning back.
I have to trust someone to survive now. So, I choose him, the man with a stare as cold as ice but a touch that sets me on fire.
I’m about to hand my heart to a monster. Let’s see if he’ll rip it apart.
