In Nico, the first book in the Ruin & Revenge series by New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille, Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . .
Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them—and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire?
I don't even know where to start with this book. I am going to say that SarahCastille has proven that she can write anything. Nico is full of bad bad men. There was a point where I tossed my kindle down and swore that I wasn't going to finish. But the book screamed at me to look for just a little while longer. Mia is sweet and funny and on the run from the place that should've been her safe haven. Her heart is huge and soft. If her family has anything to say about Mia it's just that she's a pawn to be used. My heart hurt for her. Nico, hmmm, what can I say about him? He's a man with a mission. A vendetta that he's lived his whole life to serve. Except then he meets Mia and she shows him a new way. I loved the softer side of Nico and I loved that he let Mia draw it out of him. This book is something else. Nico is a hard look into the way Mafia life could be. How the men who walk by rules that were made with tradition in mind, sometimes struggle with walking the lines between right, wrong and family. There's so much inside the world of this new series. I can not wait for more. Well done Sarah!
