O Nico, Nico, wherefore art thou Nico! Deny our fathers and face the wrath of the our sworn enemies. For we will surely die from pleasure or from the bullet with our names engraved on it.
Hot DAMN! if Nico isn't one of my favorite smexy reads for this year. I was completely taken in by this Romeo and Juliet mafia style love story that seemed to hit all the right buttons. Sarah Castille does hold back the punches as she delves into the Las Vegas underworld and it's notorious players.
On top is Nico Toscani, the bastard son of a Las Vegas Crime lord and the rightful heir to the city of sin. He is handsome and he is cunning and knows his time to gain control of the city is slipping away. He is never denied anything, not used to being told no, until he meets Mia Cordano and everything changes. She is smart, beautiful, and determined....together they have an undeniable attraction that begs to be explored but it is ravaged by the unfortunate fact that they both come from rival families.
I have to admit that this scenario was a big selling point for me. I am a huge fan of Mafioso movies so I eagerly devoured this story as if my life depended on it. The premise was unique and I liked how Nico and Mia had this tragic history that unintentionally bound them together. Both had difficult pasts and are on different journey's to overcome their circumstances and thrive. Yet, when they come together everything stops except for this undeniable pull towards one another that sets them on a collision course that burns flaming hot.
