Luca is the second book in a full-length, standalone series by New York Times bestselling author, Sarah Castille, set in Las Vegas and featuring deliciously sexy mafia bosses and the women who can’t help but love them.
Luca Rizzoli was nearly destroyed by a brutal betrayal that cost him his family. Now a ruthless crime boss in Las Vegas, he lets nothing touch his frozen heart…until a smoldering encounter with a beautiful stranger ignites his passion. One night isn’t enough for a man who takes what he wants—and Luca will do whatever he can to possess his mysterious temptress…
Police detective Gabrielle Fawkes lives for revenge. She lost everything at the hands of an unforgiving ruler of the Vegas underworld. Now she wants to see him six feet under. But when a near-fatal attack leads her into Luca’s arms, what was meant to be one night of unbridled passion becomes something forbiddingly more. Luca has his own agenda, but when strong, determined, kick-ass detective Gaby sets her sights on her target, Luca feels compelled to stand by her side and protect her at all costs. However, pursuing danger comes at a high price—and both Gaby and Luca must work together in order to eliminate the dark enterprise that threatens them.

Rosa's rating: 4.5 of 5 iScream Cones
"Love wasn't a choice, and once you found it, you couldn't let it go." Or could you?
4.5 iScream Cones! This 2nd installment in Sarah Castille's Ruin & Revenge #MafiaRomance series is a nail biter. There's nothing like the forbidden to get your blood pumping and your nerves on edge as you wait for the guilty couple to get caught. The author turned up the heat in this one and kept my attention as I waited for what I was afraid would happen while hoping it wouldn't.
Luca is a a sexy charmer that says filthy things using beautiful words. Gabrielle might not be able to understand Italian, but just hearing him whisper to her in that sexy accent while he's doing dirty things to her body turns her on. And the fact that he insists she tell him what she wants him to do to her using dirty words pretty much guarantees they aren't PG-rated. I confess, he turned me on too. I'm ready for the audible version of this book if the narrator can nail that accent...sigh.
I haven't read a Sarah Castille book yet that I didn't like. She has a gift for writing sexy alpha males whether they be MMA fighters, badass bikers, or filthy mouthed mobsters. She gets it right every time. I can't wait to see what she has for us next. The line forms here...
