After the Luchesi mafia family betrays him, assassin Mickey Tamerlane joins with gangster Boss Cold to seek revenge. But as they maneuver to take out their enemies and claim control over the city’s underworld, Mickey finds himself distracted by the newest member of Cold’s crew.

Cocky and handsome, Roger Lorre pushes Mickey’s buttons until Mickey pushes back hard.

Hard enough to hurt.

But no matter how well-used and sore he leaves Roger, once isn’t going to be enough for either of them.

Not even close.

I love this whole series. I loved the dynamics between Cold and Mr poe in the previous books. But for me this is the best book in the series.

We start before the whole series, when Cold is putting his mafia gang together, a gang of unique men that each brings a special skill to the group.

Unlike the previous books, Cold and Mr Poe are not the main characters, in fact the story starts before Cold met Mr Poe.

I love the main characters Mickey Tamberlane the top assassin and Roger Lorre who knows how to push all of Mickey’s buttons. There are lots oh hot rough and sometimes angry sex between the two, no matter how much Mickey tries to to avoid it. The banter of the pretend love hate, between these two is soo good and fun to read.

I also liked how Cold collected his group and the way he operated on their mission to take the city.

I enjoyed learning more about Cold and Micky, but also the other Gentlemen too.

Mafia and street gang stories are some of my favourites and the author delivers an authentic and exciting characters and story. The way the characters do not automatically trust each other, gives it an authentic feel, let’s be straight here, a bunch of criminals getting together for the first time, each with their own agenda, are not going to be instant best friends for ever. But by the end of the book Cold manages to build that trust.

I really feel that this book, shows us why the Gentlemen are so loyal to Cold and each other. It is because they are their own made family.

A really enjoyable fun and exciting read, with some hot sex, and some intense nail biting action scenes too. If your new to the series, you get to start at the beginning of Colds rise in the city, and if you have already read some or all of the other books in the series, This is still a must read, as you get to see what the Gentlemen are made of, and how Cold rose to run the city.


Mickey didn’t need a hotel.

He needed an insane asylum.

First, he would commit Roger, and then he would commit himself because here he was still driving over to the Master Inn Economy Motel.

He wasn’t entirely sure if his head was screwed on right when he locked the door of their room for the night, finally alone with Roger.

The ride over here had been tense, and the air inside the small room was absolutely electric. He questioned his sanity for going through with this, but his growing desire trumped any hesitations.

Roger immediately made himself comfortable by stretching out on the bed, and he grinned. “Now, get naked. I wanna see you.”

“Bossy, aren’t you?” Mickey remained standing by the door and kept his clothes on for now.

“Oh, very.”

“I’m going to need for you to simmer down for a second.”


“Because this is a very bad idea.”

Roger frowned. “What are you talking about?” He narrowed his eyes. “We’re still fucking, right?”

“Yes, but—”

“Then who cares!” Roger pulled off his shirt. “I’m still hot as fuck after watching you clean out that restaurant. Also, silencers, not quite as silent as I thought they would be.”

“After tonight, we’re done,” Mickey said firmly, trying not to stare as Roger continued to strip. “I need you to understand that this is a one time thing.”

Roger had the most delicious looking tan line around his hips and thighs from sunning in what looked to be a very small pair of shorts. The lines framed his cock perfectly, and Mickey’s mouth was filling with spit.

“What are you so afraid of?” Roger challenged, rising up to his knees on the bed. “Getting a taste and wanting more, huh?”

“I’m not afraid of shit!” Mickey snapped. He took off his jacket, laying it over the top of the television. He removed his shoulder holster as he continued to argue, “You’re fucking crazy, and I don’t like getting mixed up in crazy.”

“Yeah, but you’re about to put your dick all up in some. Come on. Why are you hiding all that beautiful fire?”

“You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.” Mickey stepped toward the bed, watching Roger’s quick fingers unbutton his shirt. He was honestly surprised he didn’t rip it off. “There is no ‘fire.’ You’re just insane.”

“No? Then why are we here, eh?” Roger smirked. He pushed Mickey’s shirt down and off his shoulders, greedily sliding his hands down his bare chest. “You like me. You like what I bring out in you.”

Mickey’s pulse began to steadily climb, and he refused to acknowledge Roger’s accusations.

He did like it… perhaps too much.

Grabbing Roger’s wrist, he shoved him back on the bed. “Fuck you.”

“I mean, that’s the plan, isn’t it?”

“Why do you have to be such a fuckin’ pain in the ass?” Mickey jumped on top of him, grunting as Roger dragged him into a harsh kiss. Their teeth clicked, and he found himself getting sucked right back in.

The crazy must have been contagious.
