Antonio is a killer.
He's beautiful, educated, a prodigy of a thief and as violent a motherfucker as ever came of the boat from Napoli.
Theresa knows it, but that doesn't stop her from getting emotionally and physically entangled with him, and this is how, maybe, she got it in her head that she can protect him.
But it's not her job to save him, and she's just not getting that. Every time she tries to protect him, she practically gets him killed, and the tighter he grips her, the more dangerous she becomes.
It's almost as if...well, he'd never admit this....but it's almost as if protecting her the way he does is the one thing he should stop. As if the only way he's ever going to find a moment's peace is to just embrace her as a partner, rather than a defenseless creature.
But he'd never do that. Not this violent motherfucker.
WARNING: This book contains delicious sex scenes with a hot man dirty-talking in Italian; women handling firearms and explosives; and scenes of violence with a crystal Virgin Mary cigarette lighter.
Ruin (The Corruption Series #2) by CD Reiss
Antonio starts to make plans to leave "the life". Daniel forces his hand with Theresa. Paulie and Irene's wedding is now off because Donna Maria thinks he is too weak. Now the spotlight is on Antonio, again. He must plan a way out of the force wedding. The PLAN..........fake their DEATH, but Antonio also has something else up his sleeve.
This is just some of the things happening in this action-packed edition to the series. This was an enjoyable story for me and as much as I LOVED Antonio and Theresa in book one, I didn't have that same feeling. At times I felt I was going through the motions of reading it just to find out what's next. I didn't have a connection with the couple this time but I wanted them to be together. I just lost that loving feeling and hopefully I will get it back in book three.
I know this may sound like I didn't like it but I really did, simply for the fact that Antonio is a killer, he's Italian, he's a dirty-talker and the sex scenes are very frequent and hot. (I think every time Theresa THOUGHT about him, her legs fell open.)
