REVIEW - The Salvation of Vengeance (Wanted Men #2) by Nancy Haviland

Only something as important as her best friend’s wedding to mob boss Gabriel Moretti could allow Nika Paynne a reprieve from captivity. Her abusive husband has kept her under his thumb with footage of her beloved brother, Caleb, killing another man. But the respite from her violent life isn’t the only draw. Vincente Romani—Gabriel’s deadliest guardian—will be one of the best men at the wedding, and Nika has lingering thoughts about the fascinating mobster…covetous thoughts that may put her life in danger.

With the heartbreak he’s suffered and the brutality he effortlessly delivers, Vincente knows he’s the last person who can offer Nika a happily-ever-after. But his vow remains. He will do everything in his power to free his redhead from her violent prison—even if that means losing her forever.

In the second thrilling and passionate Wanted Men book, a dangerous line is drawn between loyalty to the mob and loyalty to one’s heart.

I was looking forward to reading about Vincente "The Reaper" Romani. 6'4" of muscle, long black hair, sexy goatee and sporting a long black leather duster. He's the muscle, the intimidator, Gabriel's right hand man, and he is crushing on Nika, Gabriel's wife BFF.

ANTICIPATION and wasn't until Chapter 14 before BIG BAD Vincente FINALLY grew A ball and KISSED Nika. Ooooh! She was throwing signs left and right and he drop each and every one. OMG, give it to her already, end her and my torture. All of the inner dialogue was killing me....communicate with each other. To simply put it, Vincente is a whiny Asshat. Nika wasn't a walk in the park either, with ALL of the dumb sh*t she did and put up with. For What??? REALLY? Her bad-ass biker brother, don't get me started on him (SPOILER ALERT) How the fc*k did crazy ass Kelvin get the jump on billy-bad-ass biker Caleb????? What did I miss?? They all seem to be just spinning wheels and getting nothing done. WTF......What kind of Mob family and MC Club would let a crazy ass get the drop on them?? Get with the program.

Okay....I know I gave it a 3, so that meant I liked something. I like the fact that all the supporting main characters had bits of their lives included in this story. Maybe I should have given it a 2 if that's all I got.......I'm thinking.............
