This is a great story! I had a hard time putting this book down. It drew me in right away and kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. As bad as it sounds, I really liked Sven, even though he was manipulative and dark.
Sven Xander is a man who knows what he wants, and will do what it takes to get it. He is in the Mafia as a soldier, but he wants to move up. He knows that he has to plan things just right to get where he wants to be.
Rose Bellemore is a nurse working in a psychiatric hospital. She lives for her job. She has a dark past that she is running from and trying to avoid. Her patients give her the only joy in her life.
This is a dark romance story. There are a lot of people in this story that are dark and twisted, but the fact that the Boss and Sven have a soft side is great! They both find the one woman who can bring that side out in them. While these women seem to be doormats, in reality, they are very strong women and they stand up to these men. They may be scared to death while doing it, but they do it none the less. These women have been through a lot but they are still compassionate and kind. I give this story a 4.5 star review and I look forward to the next book in the series.
