They say I can’t be saved.
The Chief holds the highest power in San Ricardo, a small town in California. Near the southwestern American border to Mexico, the Chief helms an operation that steals from human traffickers. He runs everything and everyone in San Ricardo.
Life in the Chief’s community is under control until the day of Grey’s arrival. He wants Grey to himself, but the young girl becomes infatuated with Remo, one half of San Ricardo’s infamous twins.
Underestimated in her past, Grey escapes and involuntarily lands in San Ricardo. As Grey fucks around with ravishing men, avoiding to face her intuition, the Chief’s own past starts to catch up with him.
*Small Town Mafia Romance. Subjects include human trafficking, rape, abuse, manipulation, themes of polyamory.*
Everything about this book made my heart flutter. The butterflies started working their magic and all the feels came my way. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book at all and it surprised me how much I ended up loving it. Grey, Charles, Remo and even Vegas kept me on my toes and unsure on what was to come next. Each of them are unique and very different from one another.
It’s a very intricate story with depth and interwoven characters that really kept my attention. This was one of those books that forced me to read them slow so I can savor every single word. I really didn’t want to speed read this book, though I totally could have, I really wanted to take my time reading this and it really paid off. I truly loved this book, it was an absolute joy to read. It is definitely one of those books that I’ll re-read at some point. And that extended epilogue! Hot damn, please give me more 🔥🔥
This is most definitely a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me!
I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
