My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ahh what an ending! I loved this series and while this is a stand alone duet, it was the perfect way to wrap things up for the Chicago outfit.
Most mafia stories are about the life, about men accepting or loving the life, this one is different. Dino DeLuca was born into the mob, trapped by la famiglia, and punished for the sins of the father. He's raised to believe he's less than. His only reason to live is to protect his family and then he has another reason, another family.
This story flips the traditional mob story on its sides as he strives to get out. His story shines a light on the price one pays, the sacrifices and scars that are their own burden. And if on the slim chance there is a light at the end of the tunnel, the way out is no easy path.
Bethany gives us one beautifully heartbreaking story with love, hope and a HEA! I loved this duet, so much so, I read this book in one sitting! I just needed to know Dino got the ending he deserved!
