“I am a monster out of your worst nightmares.” Max Ferrara is a madman and a monster, but it’s not his scarred face that makes him a beast. He kidnapped me and tied me to a chair in his basement. He asked me crazy questions about my father, the mayor—insane ramblings about how my dad worked with the Russian Bratva to destroy his Italian Mafia family over a decade ago. Max thinks I know something about this conspiracy, but he’s wrong; my dad is a good person. Once he lets me go, I’m determined to prove to him that my father is innocent. I have to put a stop to his misguided vendetta. But the deeper I dig for evidence, the more dangerous my life becomes. Max tells me there are other monsters lurking in the dark, and he intends to protect me from them. Whether I want him to or not. The scariest thing? I’m starting to think that Max Ferrara might not be so monstrous, after all…
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Welcome to the dark world of the mafia. Max is out for revenge against the mayor who took down his family years ago. He himself also suffered some physical damage but that is not what is going for. He kidnaps Allie who is the daughter of the man himself in the hopes that he can learn some things from her. Unfortunately she has led a very sheltered and limited life being kept in the dark. Makes for one doozy of a meeting. Even when it is over they just cannot seem to leave each other alone. Makes for a very dark and intriguing romance as it all plays out. This is sure to be an enjoyable read to fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
