All I have ever wanted was to feel loved and to have a family of my own. I thought I had that in my 12-year relationship with Ignacio but I couldn’t be further from the truth. Ignacio has gone from my childhood sweetheart to a stranger who sleeps next to me. Long gone is the thoughtful boyfriend he used to be. He is now of one of the largest crime families in the tri-state area. Some despise him; most fear him; I am on the brink of both. Most of my nights are lonely as Ignacio rarely finds his way home to me but then I met HIM.

But there are things from my past that has a grip on me and prevents me from moving forward to a brighter existence with her.

As mafia books go this one to be honest was an enjoyable read if not predicable at times however, that being said there was still enough of a pull in the story to make me continue reading. As with slightly darker reads as to be expected this book does contain violence, covers mental and verbal abuse as well a rape scene that is handled tactfully by the author and infidelity so if readers are easily offend or put off by that then this book isn't for you although I must point out it's not as bad as some I have read.

Anaya has only ever wanted to feel loved and have a family of her own. She thought she had that in her 12 year relationship with her childhood sweetheart Ignacia but he feels more like a stranger. No longer the thoughtful loving boyfriend he is now the head of one of the largest crime families in the tri-state area. Some people despise him and some people fear him; she is on the brink of both. Feeling lonely and unwanted until she met him. Entering her life and turning her world upside down. Tony never expecting to feel the way he does about Anaya believes she is his salvation, his hope at a future his shining light. But when the past and present collide ultimately comes betrayals, secrets, lies and a life altering downfall.

The story is told in dual POV's between Anaya and Tony. I enjoyed the fact that I could read their thoughts and feelings throughout the story. I though the characters were well thought out and the author easily made them connectable the story was ok, good even as there was enough of a pull to continue reading as I have stated some parts were predictable but I'm not claiming that to be a bad thing. I'm awarding the book 3.5/4 stars as I can't make my mind up, as the plot-line built up throughout the book I can't help but feel the ending was a little rushed I think I would have liked more.

I would recommend. A good debut novel and I'll look forward to reading more by Autumn Sand in the future.

People around us are moving fast to the beats of the music, but not him. He’s made his own rhythm. I smell the crisp cleanliness of his shirt, and I inhale him like a drug. I’m feeling high just from the scent of him alone. Placing my hands on his slim waist, I feel his muscles moving through the material of his shirt. I close my eyes and picture a perfect V at the lower part of his abdomen. I want to lick it. I want to lick all of him like a lollipop and possibly, just possibly, take a bite.
