Luca is the second instalment of the Ruin & Revenge series by Sarah Castille. A Mafia capo and a police detective lives intersect and the connection and the chemistry is instantaneous and too powerful to deny even though their professions are polar opposites and the danger of being together should be enough to keep apart. Gabrielle lost everything that matters to her and revenge is her only goal. Luca, a mafioso, is after the same target but for different reasons. An alliance is formed and a forbidden love blooms. This book will not disappoint!

I loved this book! It was so much more than I expected. I loved that it had some real meat and took awhile to get going which gave me time to become invested in the characters and see their relationship develop, not just wam-bam-thank-you-mam. This story has some grit, a few twists, and of course, a few smouldering love scenes. Everything this gal loves in a great romance novel. I didn’t read the first novel in this series and therefore feel that this book could be read as a standalone. I rate this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for a fair review.
