Castille's second "Ruin & Revenge" novel (following Nico) centers on hardened crime boss Luca Rizzoli. After taking a bullet to the chest, Luca finds himself rooming with beautiful police detective Gabrielle Fawkes at a Las Vegas hospital. Instantly drawn to each other's stark differences, Luca and Gaby discover that they share equally painful histories. The playboy mobster is shocked by his own behavior around this woman who defies his usual "type" with her quiet beauty and independence, while Gaby is unseated by her heady attraction to this opulent alpha male. Their steamy tale of seduction is peppered with the dark twists and turns of a Mafia mystery, as Gaby strays onto the other side of the law with Luca's help and learns her husband's tragic death may not be a closed case after all.
VERDICT An engrossing erotic crime drama that will leave readers wanting more.
