Luca - Review

Luca - Ruin & Revenge #2
by Sarah Castille

What they say: Luca Rizzoli was nearly destroyed by a brutal betrayal that cost him his family. Now a ruthless crime boss in the city of sin, he lets nothing touch his frozen heart--until a smoldering encounter with a beautiful stranger ignites his passion. One night isn't enough for a man who takes what he wants, but his mysterious temptress has slipped away.

For two years police detective Gabrielle Fawkes has lived for revenge. But a night of indulgence with a sexy stranger changes everything. Powerful, charming, and deliciously dangerous Luca, has his own private reasons for offering to help her pursue the drug lord who killed her husband. There's a lot Luca isn't telling her and the more she finds out the less she wants to know.

When Gabrielle becomes the target of the drug lord she has vowed to hunt down, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in a mobster's hands. To save her, Luca must break his Mafia ties--or risk losing Gabrielle forever.

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I read Luca quickly then delayed reviewing it. It took me a little while to write my review of Luca because even after sitting thinking about it for a while, I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about the story. This is largely because I loved Nico's book and although I liked Luca, I wasn't bowled over in the same way. I think this is mainly down to my uncertainty towards Gabrielle. 

Luca is the ultimate alpha male. He's hot, sexy, determined, dominant and totally bad ass. If this is your thing then be prepared to swoon over Luca's dirty Mafioso badassness. 

Gabrielle was a harder sell for me. I hate to say it but I didn't love her. I respected her mission and reasoning but didn't really like how quickly she changed her mind nor her unusual policing approach. This being said, I've never been faced my a hot Mafia Capo like Luca.

The naughty scenes are frequent, dirty and not for the faint hearted. Luca definitely lives up to his alpha status in these scenes.

It was great to catch up with some old favs and am looking forward to seeing which character is up next in the series.
