Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Wanna know a secret?
Skeletons don’t like to stay buried.
They wait; they watch; then they strike while you’re at your most vulnerable.
As it turns out, my skeleton is the deadliest of them all, and they seriously pissed him off.

For a little over thirteen years, 
I mourned the death of Luca.

The only man I loved and trusted,
But the one they forced me to kill.

My brother.

But if the man
sitting in front of me now is right,
He’s the skeleton in my closet I didn’t know I had,
And he’s come with a few secrets of his own.

Secrets that rival mine.

I just hope he realizes what he walked into,
Because I’m not the little girl he ambled out on years ago.
Now, I’m the perfect weapon with only one mission in mind,
And it’s not the contract resting over my head.

No; My mission is to keep my King safe,
while he unravels the mysteries looming over our heads.

I’ll be damned if I fail this task.
Be damned if I fail him.

Mateo is the only one I care about right now,
And if my brother makes one false move, I’ll kill him for real.

Only this time … I’ll enjoy every second of it.

My Thoughts:

This book carries on from where book two left off.  It’s best to read this series/serial in order so that you get a true understanding of the Calvetti family.

Mateo “Teo” Calvetti gives me the impression that things may be coming to a head.  Carina Ricci has never had a chance to be part of a happy family.  One thing that made me sad is that she feels that she doesn’t deserve to be happy. 

This story is short, sweet, and to the point.  But realize that these people constantly have violence in their lives.  Don’t go into this expecting hearts and flowers.  If you’re looking for a short read you will have that here.  Just don’t expect a definitive ending because it left me saying “no, no, no!”  So I was glad to see that there’s a book four.  So if you like stories that leave you hanging off a cliff than this will hit the mark.

My Thoughts:

Mateo “Teo” Calvetti is very upset about how he was manipulated.  He’s still self-assured and runs things with an iron fist.  Carina Ricci starts us off with some disturbing memories.  But she was strong enough to let someone into her life that she could learn to love.  I certainly can’t even begin to imagine what she’s been through but our author shows us some in graphic detail.  But I loved her attitude.

This is a series where you will need to keep an open mind.  Our couple would not be considered normal.  It ‘s a story that will showcase our author’s talent.  She has a great imagination and creativity - that’s what sucked me in.  And just like in the first book I don’t believe that there is a defined hero or heroine.  This is a dark tale and may have triggers for some.  There is no ending but a tense moment that left me on the edge of my seat looking forward to book three – I want to know how things are going to end for our main characters.
