My story is the one that’s never told.
I’m not a sister or a mother.
I'm not his enemy and I'm not his friend.
I’m not who you think I am.
So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.
Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.
I have to change who I am.
I have to shut down my heart.
I have to accept my place.
My heart isn’t permitted to.
But rules were made to be broken…right?

I’ve read plenty of Bella Jewel’s books and hands down this is by far one of my favorite by her. If you have read mafia romances this is a completely different take on it. The norm is that a mob boss falls in love with his future Mrs. but this is not the case with this book. I went in with an idea in my head finished with my mind being blown. This was like a cluster of emotions rolled into one.
We meet Julie who work’s as a ER nurse. I loved her personality that is what won me over. She is a spitfire with a sassy mouth that should get her into trouble but she gets away with it. She doesn’t take and lip or disrespect form any man. The thing I enjoyed and thought that was funny was her relationship with her parents. She is single and ready to mingle she decides to check out a new club that has opened little did she know what was going to unfold.
Raf was born into this life he has the weight of the mafia world on his shoulders. He needs a release but he can’t get it from his wife she can’t seem to tame his fire, his passion. He has had a couple of things on the side but they don’t last for more then a month. That is until he see’s Julie walk into his club.
This blew my mind I knew their would be a cliffhanger but that was just plain mean. The story builds and developed into something bigger and more jaw dropping then what I had imagined in my head. Rest assured the next book has already been written and is in edits as we speak. Hopefully they don’t keep us waiting.
