⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Basilio DiLustro is the son of the leader of the Syndicate. He’s preparing to take his father’s place, him, his sister, and his cousins are putting themselves in line to be able to take their fathers’ place in the Syndicate. However, Basilio’s father Gio is still in charge, and he is a cruel man and has no plans on giving up his seat anytime soon. Basilio does not want to rule the same way as his father and has plans to work with the Irish Mafia to bring peace between the two families. Basilio has no clue what the war between the families is from, but he wants peace, and he plans to make a plan with Liam Brennan to bring that peace. He was not prepared for the woman that landed in his arms the night he was planning to meet with Liam, and he had no idea who she was, but he couldn’t get her out of his mind.
Wynter Star has been kept away from her uncle’s dealings. She knows that he runs the Brennan Mafia family, but he has always protected her and her cousin and worked to keep them away from his business. The girls are spoiled to a point, but they were also sheltered all their lives. Wynter’s life centers around her ice skating and the Olympics that she is working to get to. Her mother is her coach and avoids New York like she’ll get the plague if she goes there. Wynter has no idea why, but she knows that her mother won’t go there. Wynter, her cousin Juliette, and their college friends spend a lot of time in New York visiting Juliette’s father. One night will change their lives forever.
I love this story, the girls are reckless, determined, and always find themselves in some kind of trouble. They will try the patience of Liam Brennan and all of his associates and friends. I love the characters and the story. I loved the prequel of this series and couldn’t wait for this story. It was not a disappointment. The other stories are going to be great as well. I can’t wait to read all of them. There are a lot of twists in this story and a lot of secrets will come to light in this story. The secrets could be destructive, but they can also open up so much for these characters. I am looking forward to more of this series and give this book a 5-star review.
