Power. Greed. Revenge. Submission.
Sierra Winters never planned on falling for the most powerful man in Sydney.
One minute, she's an everyday twenty-eight year old working class office girl the next, she is being blackmailed by Sebastiano Morassi, Sydney's influential crime family boss, to settle her brother's debts.
Sierra knows she should never have gone to him to "save" her brother but she is captivated by him. His monstrous size, his malicious evil glare and more frightening is the scar that marks his left cheek. Never has she never met or seen anyone like him. The more time she spends with this frightening yet captivating man, the harder it becomes to want to escape.
Sebastiano Morassi is pure danger. So why does she crave him? He can make her tremble with fear and make her hairs stand on end but he also has a sweetness to him that tugs at her heart. Sierra soon finds herself merged into his world full of murder, revenge, and deceit.
Every damn time I pick up an Elle Raven book I think my husband know to stir clear, because my emotions will be all over the place. This book was no exception. I felt like I couldn't breath at some points in the book. I mean I wanted the chapter to keep going and end all at the same time. Not that this is a bad thing, hell it is the best thing an author can make me do. Go threw several emotions all at once! It is AMAZING!
This duo really out did them self's Elle and Aimie about near drowned me in my own tears of anger, happiness, and joy!
Sierra is one of those girls you see at the bar who just sorta blends in and you don't know if she is too beautiful or not beautiful enough. It took me awhile to get to know her and want to be her friend. I really loved her after breaking the barriers down. I wanted to nearly strangle her sometime and others I wanted to give her a hug and a shot of some whiskey.
Than there is the man Sebastioano god Sierra prefers him to a shot of whiskey, and who wouldn't he is just every woman's dream. Pure danger with a warning sign on his back that says "Stay Away". Sierra doesn't listen and falls for him more and more every time he looks her way. I really have to admit I fell for him as well. He was just everything that screams no and yes at the same time.
This book was so hot and cold I was on fire by the end. I feel like this was more than I could handle, but I put my big girl panties on and took it hard and fast. It was so thrilling. Elle and Aimie please for the love of god give me more PLEASE!!

Walking back into the church, I found Sebastiano on the steps in front of the altar. He looked agitated and ruthless as I observed him, toying with his rosary beads. His shirt looked like it had been haphazardly ripped open. He didn’t resemble the man I knew; a man who could be harmless, soft and so sweet at times. But deep down, I know he wasn’t.
His eyes cut into mine as I approached him. And I could see it: the darkness that lay beneath. It only took one look from Sebastiano to make me tremble. Still, those looks of warning didn’t stop the traitorous feelings inside me. Maybe I shouldn’t have gone to him. I should have stayed away from him, but I didn’t want to. The pull was too strong, too urgent.
I reminded myself that inside this man’s body, his head, lurked a monster I had yet to be introduced to.
