Luca and Gabrielle meet under unusual circumstances which has Luca thinking he's died and gone to heaven because of the beautiful angel next to him....Love that! This is not your typical mafia romance, nope, because you know that a made man CANNOT be with a cop let alone a detective and that is exactly what Gabrielle is, a Las Vegas Police Detective.
I need to say that it's not an easy road for Luca and Gabrielle, and it's not only because of their "family" differences. This story has a lot of sexy times but more than that there is a ton of mystery/suspense coming from all directions. I am enjoying this series and I cannot wait for Rocco's story which is due out January 2018......only 6 months to go :)
Excerpt from Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) by Sarah Castille
She wanted to believe him, but it seemed an impossible task. From what she understood, there were only two ways out of the Mafia: death and witness protection. And after what he’d just told her about his father, there was no way she could let him make the choice that would mean losing the one thing he’d been struggling for all his life. She didn’t want Luca without that chunk of flesh. She wanted him whole.
“What were they going to do to you?”
“Hurt me. Maybe break a few bones.”
“Because of me,” she said bitterly.
“Because I broke the rules.” His rough hand cupped her cheek, his thumb brushing lightly over her jaw. “I would endure any hardship for you. I will welcome the pain because it gives us time to be together. Every extra day I get to spend with you is worth a dozen bruises.”
“Luca.” His name was a prayer on her lips. She had lost David. She wasn’t going to lose Luca, too. There had to be a way for them to be together that didn’t involve him getting killed or beaten with a baseball bat or losing the honor that was such an important part of his life. “I think I just showed you I would make the same sacrifice for you.”
“And you will be punished for it.” He wrapped his arms around her so tight she could barely breathe.
He buried his face in her neck, nuzzled behind her ear, his five o’clock shadow a sensual burn over her skin. “I will give you more pleasure than you can bear.”
Gabrielle swallowed hard and all her awareness suddenly centered on the pulse of arousal between her thighs. “I want you to be rough.”
“I’ll be rough.”
“I want you to tear me apart so you understand that how you feel about me is how I feel about you. How your pain is my pain. How I couldn’t sit there and watch you suffer.”
He drew in a ragged breath. “I will break you and then I will put you together again. I will mark you so that every time you look in the mirror you think of me, and every man who dares look at you knows you are mine.”
“I want to be yours, Luca,” she whispered. “And I want you to be mine.”
Sei mia per sempre, anima e cuore. Senza di te non vivo piu. You are mine forever,” he translated for her. “Body and soul. Without you, I couldn’t live.”
She surrendered to him, unable to do anything but feel as he feathered kisses down her throat to the sensitive juncture of her neck and shoulder.
And then he leaned down and bit her so deliciously hard she screamed.
