Wow! The dark in this story will knock your socks off! Revenge is the name of the games as the criminal organizations go at each other using anyone they can. It’s brother against brother in an epic Guerra battle with each brother joining forces with longtime enemies. Michele is so twisted and plays horrific games with an enemy’s daughter and that’s after he sold his brother into slavery. Yea, that gets Raf so twisted up as he plans his revenge against Michele when joins forces with an old enemy. Raf gets a bonus with his new partner when the DeVille sister is someone from his past that he wants to break. Poor Noelle is struggling to overcome her past and the games of her torturer are agonizing. There’s a lot of really disturbing elements to this story that might be triggers for sensitive readers. The romance is really dark and not your usually light affair with a happy ever after. These characters are too damaged for light relationships or easy love. It’s hard, harsh and brutal. This story drew me in right from the start and kept me turning the pages as the secrets were revealed and the games played out in a devastating way. There are a lot of characters and relationships in the story, most are twisted bordering on destructive and violent. The ending was heartbreaking as one soul was crushed. I look forward to the next story in this War series. Worth the read!
