I'm not big on mob type stories so this was a bit out of the box of typical reading for me. That said, the story and the characters were well developed. Even though I am not a mob genre reader, I fell into this story and enjoyed the fall! Bethany-Kris really has talent in her story sharing skills. She writes about characters you want to meet in real life with a storyline that could be a movie! I found myself captivated (haha!) by this story. She grabs your emotions and ignites your imagination as you continue to read. I found myself unable to put this book down! I loved the love between Joe and Liliana. Even though this isn't my kind of read, I really enjoyed it and would read another by Bethany-Kris.
