    Awesome

    Absolutely awesome read! A mafia romance with a Capo and a Detective getting together - yes please! Luca Rizzoli is all sorts of yummy sexiness and Gabrielle Fawkes is the kind of strong willed and determined woman it will take to bring him to his knees. Luca has been betrayed by a woman before and never plans on letting one get close again. Until Gabrielle. They both have their secrets and they accept that but when Gabrielle is threatened Luca knows he's all in regardless of what the cost may be. This book is very well done and I can't wait for Frankie's story. No one does Mafia romance like Sarah Castille! I highly recommend this one!

    Mafia Romance

    Luca by Sarah Castille Ruin & Revenge #2 What a delight this book proved to be – of course I was EXPECTING it to be having loved Nico’s story told in book one of this series but STILL…what a treat this book was! Luca Rizzoli, a capo for Nico Toscani, is first introduced in the hospital and shortly thereafter into his room arrives the woman he will eventually end up with. Gabrielle Fawkes is absolutely the best and worst person for Nico to fall for because they are forbidden to one another. Yes, he is forbidden by the “commandments” of the mafia to date someone on the police force and she is definitely not supposed to date someone in the mafia. Okay…so that is a bit of background BUT add in sizzling hot interactions between the two, similar background experiences - in more ways than one, mutual bad guys they want to put away, and a cast of characters that I want to hear more about and you have a story that keeps the pages turning lickety-split. On the last page I felt happy for all and ready to read the next book – a book I hoped would be about Frankie BUT I found out it will be about Rocco and now need to find out where Rocco was mentioned in this book to try and find out what meager crumbs might have been left to suss out what his story might be about. I am sure that no matter WHAT his story is it will be a humdinger and a page-turner since both the other books in this series have been. I still want Frankie’s story, though ;) I do hope his will be told eventually! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Very Exciting

    Luca Rizzoli is high up in the Toscani crime family, and recovering in hospital after throwing himself in front of a bullet meant for his boss. Narcotics Detective Gabrielle Fawkes is also in hospital with a similar gunshot wound. She was shot while trying to catch the drug lord who murdered her husband. There is no way our hero can allow himself to get involved with a cop. The families will not permit it. Our heroine doesn't want to believe that just because Luca is Italian, rich and dangerous means he is Mafia . Her career and any hope of vengeance would be over. Lots of blood and bullets flying around and some scorching hot sex. This is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone. You will only meet a few friends from previous books. A very exciting all action book.

    Loved it

    'Luca' by Sarah Castille is Book Two in the "Ruin & Revenge" series. This is the story of Gabrielle Fawkes and Luca Rizzoli. I have read the previous book but I feel this can be a standalone book if you wish to do so. Gabrielle is a detective that is looking into activities in a drug cartel along with avenging her husbands death. Luca is in a crime family and a ladies man. But these two finding their attraction to hard to ignore. But can these two from the opposite side of the road have allot to overcome to get to their happy ending. I enjoyed Luca being the strong man that he was and trying to protect Gabrielle. But Gabrielle was an even stronger person and she tried to protect him too. This has been such a great and exciting series! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    much better read than Nico1

    This is book two in Ruin and Revenge series, but you don't need to have read book one, Nico, before this. While this book follows that one, and reading this before that would be spoilers, it doesn't really matter. I gave book one 4 stars. I enjoyed this one a little more. It's still quite dark, with the Mafia being Luca's family and I think it's a little more violent, because Luca does like to get his hands dirty, but it gripped me a little more, I think. It kinda grabbed by the throat and didn't wanna let go, not til all had been revealed! And let me tell ya, I did not see that one coming!! Nope, not even after that bombshell exploded, did I put the pieces together fast enough and I was like, say WHAT!!! I was somewhat shocked there. I loved that Luca battles with himself over Gabrielle. Knowing she is a Detective and him not being able to walk away could cost him his life, but still, he cannot hold back the dam of protectiveness she unleashed in him. Loved that Gabrielle didn't put her clues together fast enough about Luca. Loved that even though Luca is who he is, and who he belongs to, she can't walk away from the man she loves. Can't watch him lose his life! Oh I LOVED that, when Gabrielle does what she does!! Glad that the bad guy gets his comeuppance, but not saying who or how. There is, as in book one, a third person who has a say. I was worried for this person for a while, but loved how Castille worked him into the plot, and how, small and insignificant he is for most of the book, it's he who gives Luca and Gabrielle the in they need to get the job done. Like I said, a darker, bloodier, read, mainly because Luca does like to lead by example but also because of what Luca suffers at the hands of the previously mentioned bad guy. Not nice reading that. But!! Because it grabbed and didn't let go . . . . 5 full stars.
