Sex is his weapon.
Power is her drug.
Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it—so be it.
The problem is … she just wasn’t prepared for all of him.
Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen’s plans in her effort to gain power, but he’s a better player than she knows.
The thing is … women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.
Philadelphia isn’t ready for game these two are playing—the sacrifices they make might not be worth it in the end, and someone will always lose in a war.
They’re broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there’s a monster at his back who made him that way.
And monsters like those hide in plain sight.
Note: This is a standalone romance with content that some might find triggering. Be warned, and read with caution.
🔥 My Review:
Betrayal, lust, sexual games, bloody fights and enthralling family dynamics are at the heart of this terrific Mafia story. No one creates decadent dirty Mafia characters like this author and the couple in this story is one of her most spectacular. Aria as the heir apparent of her Mafia clan is temporarily in charge and makes the most of her time at the top. Many see her as a princess but that’s a mistake. She is a Queen. And she’s beautiful and conniving and had a set of lady balls that rival any man’s. Except maybe the hot screwup Caesar who is the son of the rival Mafia family that she’s messing with. He is at odds with his father, the head of the family, and uses every opportunity to thwart his father’s plans for his life. Aria and Caesar are both sexy creatures and use lust to their advantage. Her plan to blackmail him starts a steamy relationship that could compromise both of them and change their status to dishonored within their families. Both are dealing with heavy emotional issues, his is past trauma and her’s in the present in the form of a hateful husband. Caesar uses pain and sex or both to push past his emotional dysfunction. Aria uses bloodshed and her beauty to get what she wants. This is a thrilling rollercoaster of a read that’s dark, gritty, heart wrenching and will have you waiting with baited breath for the next bloody or sexy encounter. With these two you don’t which it will be. I loved it.
