The lines of consent were so blurred and I just can’t get over how much I didn’t like Luca.

Sex, violence, moral ambiguity
I loved it. 
I figured they would’ve come to a stage of obvious emotional affection a lot sooner than they did, but I’m a sucker for a slow burn. I was waiting for more playfulness like in the scene at the gym but mafias are usually more dark so it doesn’t bug me as much as it usually would, but that scene came so naturally it was hard not to want more of that dynamic, can’t wait to see if the other books provide that

This book man... good amount of spice, the main character is extremly sexy but the plot was lacking. Left me wanting more!

4/5 spice lots of scenes that are well written. This book would have been a 4.5/5 stars if I had stopped before the last few chapters. I really liked their growth together and how they pushed each other. 
SpoilerThen he sees no problem with not informing her weeks ago that her little sister was sold into a marriage. Also the big ending is I actually love you I don’t just want to Fuck you.
So yup ends on a fairly big Cliff hanger and not a great ending overall.

It's the misogyny I know it is, I just can't seem to get past it no matter how hard I try. Like I get yk big strong mafia man who can't show weakness, but just the rituals of the Family's and how they treated the women. I guess I'm just lucky that I liked this guy somewhat more because he didn't force himself on her on their wedding day. Aria annoyed me, Luca was better, favourite character was Romero, at least he was respectful. Even the possessiveness didn't make me feel much this time. I'll read the rest of the books, only because I need to finish the series and I'm intrigued about how it will continue.
