Sarah Castille does it again!!! I simply love this new series of hers. Ruin and Revenge is a series following a family of mobsters….er um I mean businessmen. I recommend reading the first book in the series, Nico. You can still follow this book, but you definitely lose something if you haven’t read the first one. Plus its Sarah Castille, you can’t go wrong.
Gabrielle is bent on revenging her husband’s death. Her every action and thought revolves around her husband’s memory and finding those responsible for her husband’s death. During her quest for vengeance, she gets shot which winds her up in the hospital sharing a room with sexy Luca.
Luca has been burned by a woman before. So when he lays eyes on Gabrielle, in a hospital bed no less, he is reluctantly smitten. His pursuit of her is only slightly dampened by the fact she is a police officer and they are on opposite sides of the law.
I really like this book not only because it is written by one of my top fav authors, but also because it has great characters. Luca is deliciously alpha male. He knows exactly what he wants and doesn’t stop until he gets it. Gabrielle is no wilting flower. I can’t stand the whole damsel in distress routine. Women can kick ass just like men and Gabrielle demonstrates that fact. Just like the old adage says, “don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”. Well she does, but she also brings a .22 caliber pistol, a .44, and a taser. She doesn’t allow Luca to pull the ole caveman routine and forces him to see her as his equal.
I love Sarah Castille’s books, so I might be a bit biased when I say this book is great and I recommend the read.
