They call him The Mute for a reason.

When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

My name is Sebastian, but they call me the Killer. I have never lost a fight; never let anyone touch me without regretting it. I am a fighter, that’s how I survive in the gutter that is The Market, a neighborhood in the outskirts of Rome.
Rome, the city of eternal beauty. But also the city of lost souls. When gangster Alejandro de la Crux wanted to have a word with me, I had no idea what was coming. He wanted me- the Killer- to protect his ex-wife and his son, while he went into hiding. Someone wanted him dead, wanted all of them dead. I had no idea it was Andrea, the woman I had met years before, the woman I had lost my head for.
It was her. She needed help. And I wasn’t going to let anyone touch her, not even her ex-husband Alejandro de la Crux.
“He’s going to kill us if he finds out” she told me. “I am going to hell anyway” I whispered in her ear, before moving down to kiss her again. “I am coming with you” she murmured against my mouth.
I was introduced to this story by the author. It’s PNR and definitely my kind of book. I had originally planned not to read it yet as I had other commitments, but the blurb really intrigued me and so I picked it up and started reading. Boy am I glad I did.
What a story! It’s filled with tension, suspense, wit, sweetness and chemistry. It’s the kind of story you hope could be real. I know it’s PNR but the feelings it stirs in you are very real. It made me want to laugh, cry and swoon all in equal measure.
It’s hard to describe without giving away spoilers and I really don’t want to do that because you have to read the story to appreciate it, because it really does give you those ‘first read feels.’
I loved Lou’s character, she’s lost a lot in her life but she’s made it through, she’s stronger than she believes and resilient. She has this really spunky and witty vibe to her. It’s awesome to read because you can’t help gel to her.
‘Death’ was such a fascinating character and the whole vibe he gave off was intense. Like he had this eerie quality and if you read the story you’ll realise why. At the beginning he’s this enigma, he has to collect souls on the brink of death, a lonely and sad vocation but if the story is to be believed, necessary. He was complex but essentially still a man. Sort of. Not to mention hot!!
The two characters together had so much chemistry and it’s a testament to an author who can make you feel them, live through them. That’s how I felt whilst reading them. I felt I was in the story and I love it when I’m a willing participant and not just an observer.
How these two characters are brought together and the eventual ending will leave you reeling. I certainly wasn’t expecting it and I really racked my brain. This book DESERVES so much attention. I sometimes wish I had book amnesia, so that I can relive the story all over again. It’s definitely going to be a reread book.
Cannot wait for more by this author, definitely one to watch.
After the first book, I was super excited to get started on this book. Nate captured my attention in the first book and I I was really intrigued to find out if the guy could redeem himself. Having his own book really sat well with me, we get to see the guy he is underneath the assassin.
I love this authors way of writing, it’s current and fresh and the subject matter is different. I mean, who’d have though shark shifters would grab your attention? It’s make believe but also believable.
Nate’s character is very much the alpha assassin but there’s also the softer side to him, the guy he wants to be, not just the trained killer but the one that has a place with another. Someone perhaps like Sophia?
In the first book we saw the side to him that he didn’t want people to see, he was hell bent on killing but when it came to the crunch , he just couldn’t do it. After that he became embarrassed, he believed he’d gone soft, so what better way to get revenge, than to kill the sister of the one he couldn’t. Except that doesn’t work out quite so well, as the story will tell you.
This second book is a fantastic instalment. It again has all the elements of the authors writing in the first book and features another hot alpha male. What’s not to love?
I cannot wait for the third book, I’ll patiently await it but secretly curse the author for not writing quicker!
My thanks go to the author for the recommendation of this book.
If you’ve read my blog before you may have seen that I have previously read another series by this same author and I bloody loved it. Very much up my alley, street and avenue in terms of genre.
Paranormal romance is one of my favourite genres and I love all different aspects of it, however on reading the blurb for this and realising it was about shark shifters I was really taken aback. I’ve never read anything with this type of shifter before, I ususally stick to what I know, i.e wolf shifters. So it was with a little trepidation that I started reading this book, however I needn’t have worried, it was fabulous.
The author really knows how to write PNR, how to build the world she is creating. Her characters are spunky and witty. Throw in the whole alpha thing and you have a recipe for success.
I wasn’t keen on Darcy’s character at the start. I don’t know what it was but when the author gave her character this witty, sarcastic and fun edge, I really liked her. Gabriel has all the qualities of a book boyfriend and again with the alpha thing, how could you not.
It whole book gels and I couldn’t help but get more drawn into the story in each chapter. It has snippets of dark elements but the story itself isn’t dark however, the air it creates feels eerie, in a really good way.
If you’re looking for a different take on the PNR world then I urge you to give this a go. It’s different but in a very good way.
