If you like dark mafia romance, thrillers, then you will probably enjoy this book. The plot is strong, the sex is hot and kinky, and the action is defiantly exciting. Whilst there is no new twist to the mafia love story, you are kept on the edge of your seat, especially as we head towards the final chapters.
The book delivers on its synopsis, and you feel like you’re in the middle of the underworld of gangs. There are a few gruesome moments so be prepared.
I did connect with the characters, especially Akira Kazama, who came across as the perfect mafia leader, cold and calculated. He doe soften towards Sora towards the end of the book as feeling start to develop between the two main characters.
Sora was a little to naive for me, you make a deal with a notorious loan shark, any 25-year-old should know that you’re making a deal with the devil. I totally understood why he went to Akira as a last resort for money to pay for his mother’s cancer treatment. But he would have known there would be consequences for not paying.
Luckily for Sora Akira is attracted to him and has to have him in his bed, so uses the dept as a convenient way to get what he wants, A sexy 25-year-old, with no strings. Until Akira’s heart has other ideas.
The secondary character named Testsuya intrigues me, and I would love to read his story, maybe’s a fully-fledged novel where the pace is a little slower and we get to know the characters in a little more detail.
