Nico (Ruin & Revenge #1) by Sarah Castille

A dangerous proposal

Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . .

Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them—and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire?

4 out of 5 stars

Mia is a tough hacker, trying to break the mold. She refuses to be an ornament or a punching bag. But she also understands that as a mafia princess, the mafia life will always be connected with her. Mia will never be able to runaway, so she does what she needs to do in order to survive.

When she runs into Nico, she instantly notices that he's not the same young man that she met years ago. He's stronger and colder, but he still treats all the women in his life with respect.

The attraction between them is instant. Although their relationship is forbidden since they are from different families in the mafia, they have no control when it comes to each other.

I really enjoyed this story. The suspenseful moments kept me on my toes. The only thing that annoyed me was Mia always calling him 'Mr. Mob Boss.'
