Fierce, good-looking, loyal, son of a crime boss, Bronson Agosto is what every girl dreams of. Devoted to one girl and willing do everything in his power to ensure her safety.Beautiful, trusting, damaged, daughter of the underboss, Callie Locati has Bronson’s heart. She gave herself to him when they were kids and will sacrifice all she is to protect him.
Divided by the greed of one of the most trusted members of the familia, a father’s sins, and secrets kept, they struggle to overcome the obstacles life has thrown their way. Is their bond strong enough to conquer the forces trying to keep them apart? Is a father’s betrayal more than their love can survive? Will the family secrets ruin them or will their devotion stand the test of time?
Despair and indecision linger around us, filling up the church. It’s weaving its way between each and every one of us; the loyalty that was once aligned with my family is now going to be called into question, the uncertainty of what will happen to the former soldiers and associates that worked for my father will be called into question and decisions will have to be made. The man responsible was never relieved of his duties as second in command and these men mourning my father’s demise aren’t in a position to question whatever orders they are given, not unless they want to meet the same detriment my father did. Frank Locati will seek to destroy everything my father built, he will challenge these men’s loyalties, harm the ones he doesn’t deem worthy.
As I watch the casket being lowered into the grave, surrounded by loved ones, enemies, and friends a decision is made. Today, I decide, retribution will be mine. The difference between my retribution and theirs is that the justice system will take care of mine. It may not come swiftly, or as brutally and messy as they deliver, but it will come.
The love story between Bronson and Callie will have you on one hell of a ride. It begins when they are kids and follows them through their struggle of living as members of a mafia family.
From the time that they are kids, Bronson promises to always protect Callie. Bronson was the guy that every girl wants – the protector, the best friend and the alpha hot male. I fell in love with Bronson. Then Ms. Lunsford wrote a twist that totally blew me away, and I fell out of love with him because he turned into a dick. I was heartbroken because he was my hero lol. Thank God I fell in love with him again by the end, because I was pissed. I even went so far as to send a message to the author asking “WTF?”
This story is amazing and so different from anything Ms. Lunsford has written before! There are a lot of twists in the story – at least once, I thought it was going one way and it went in a totally different direction. It has everything I love in a great book, romance, suspense and hot sex. Boy, she can write some amazingly hot scenes. Kudos to Ms. Lunsford for hitting it out of the park with this one.
