⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Chiara Fiore is the daughter of a mafia family that is on the brink of destruction. Her family needs money and they have been approached with an offer that is hard to refuse. There is a twist to this age-old story though, and Chiara could let her family crumble if she makes the wrong decision.
Luca Mendacius has offered to give money to the Fiore family to come back from the brink of destruction, but he wants the hand of the beautiful Chiara Fiore in marriage for his offer. He’s a self-made man as a wealthy tech genius in Sicily. He’s also a man that has returned home to Chicago to regain what should have been his years ago. He’s sexy, rich and looking for vengeance.
This was a good story. I liked most of the characters and the I liked the story line. There are some twists and turns that were unexpected and made the story even better. Chiara is a smart woman. She’s strong willed, smart and won’t take anything from anyone. When she and Luca are alone her walls start to come down a bit and her soft side shows. I enjoyed the book and give it a 4-star review. This was my first time reading a book by Anna Ray, but I look forward to reading more of her books.
