This book was a crazy ride from start to finish. We have Elle who has been bullied since freshmen year of high school and now all she wants is to graduate. She witness a crime behind her work and now she just wants to make sure the “boss” is not going to come for her anytime soon. Nero wants to join the family business but he has to complete his first job first. He has to get close to Elle so he can see what she knows. It is going to be harder than he ever thought possible.

Some parts of this book was hard to read. I am not going to lie. The amount of bullying that Elle takes is horrible. So you have to be in a mood to read things like that but there is also the romance that brings some happiness to the book. Elle has lived a hard life. She takes the bullying at school so that her best friend doesn’t. She won’t tell anyone and it seems her parents believe all of her lies. Life blows until Nero starts paying attention to her. I only had one or two problems with Elle’s character and it really wasn’t all her. I mean I understand she can’t really tell anyone or it would get worse but I don’t know why she won’t tell Nero. She needs someone to confide in. And I mean what teacher sees a kid with multiple bruises all of the time and doesn’t think anything of it. I mean broken nose, broken arm, hair cut off, I mean you would at least think they would have thought the parents did it. It’s just unbelievable that no one said anything.
Nero is the mob bosses son. All he has ever known was that The Family comes before family. He needs to get close to Elle to see what she saw that night. What he doesn’t expect is to fall in love with her. He wants to protect her and give her the things she never has because of the life she was dealt. I actually kind of liked Nero. I mean he was ridiculously possessive and bat shit crazy but he was loveable. I loved the scene with Elle’s dad. I mean after everything I am glad Nero said those things to him. Nero’s possessiveness was a whole other level. I mean it was borderline too much. I mean he didn’t really even give her a choice to give up her V-card. He just said it’s going to happen and I am not going to wait much longer. Don’t get me wrong I liked this book but some parts of it, like that one, just rubbed me the wrong way.

The writing and the flow was nice. I wasn’t bored or looking for the end. The supporting characters really brought more to the story. Not only were you figuring out Elle and Nero’s personalities and stories but the other characters too. For example I am dying to know more about Chloe, Amo, and Lucca. Vincent too. You get a hint of their stories in the book but only enough to make you want more. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
