Started slow but finished with a bang. The first few chapters were a little plodding and slow but it soon picked up with a fast paced race to the end. Lots of action, danger and intrigue with a new made man taking his place with the Chicago Five Families. He’s a legacy with a vengeance and on a mission. I really liked Max as the baddie boss-in-the-nmaking with his dangerous skills and handsome face. His insta for our fabulous heroine Liliana was a little much for me. Lil was terrific as a woman with a horrible father but fabulous gal pals and family friends. I loved her fight and passion. Her group of peers are excellent as they band together to right wrongs and get the truth about a loved one. This next generation of the Five are so much better than the ones now in power. And they’re looking to take over. The attraction was instant between Max and Lil and the love soon followed and by the end I was thrilled by this sexy couple. I was a little put off by the materialistic elements at the beginning and later when I wanted details there were none. I mean, delicious Max would have given his bride a huge ring but there was nothing. What started out as descriptions of everything Lil wore down to her lipstick ended with not much when I wanted to know. Anyhoo. I like the villains versus the good guys in the story with a few surprise twists. The gal pals were fabulous as they held their own and banded together for right. Tough, deadly and beautiful! A few pairings are obvious for future stories. Lots of hot hunks to come in this series and I’m looking forward to the next installment. Worth the read!
