About this ebook

**This book may contain triggers. This book is part of a series and ends on a cliffhanger.**

This empire is built on the bones of our enemies, 

surrounded by shadows that hide our twisted deeds and quiet wealth. 


After a decade, what remained was a lone pendant and a shattered heart.

If not for the photo, I’d think he was a ghost.

With no other choice, I redefined my life, mending the broken pieces.

But like all things that haunt us, he’s back, engulfing my once simple life into a raging storm surrounded by crime and bloodshed.

The trouble he brings is more than just his secrets; it's the weakness he brings out of me.

But just one taste can’t hurt, can it?


My existence is tangled with darkness and mayhem, where we live by a code

—family, power, loyalty, and protection.

Until her.

She was the light.

And I left.

Everything I’ve done has been to protect her. 

She resists our connection, consumed by the betrayals of the past.

Too bad. I refuse to stop until she becomes mine again.

This was such a WONDERFUL story! I have to say up front that when I got this book, I did not realize it ended on a cliffhanger. I usually avoid these stories, but I’m SO glad I read this and can’t wait for the next book in the series! This was my first JL Drake story and I can say it definitely won’t be my last. Elio and Sienna’s story was an emotional rollercoaster ride from the start to the agonizing cliffy. Love, betrayal, Childhood friends to first time love and a heartbreaking separation that neither of them saw coming until it was too late. Sierra was left with a broken heart and pendant, trying to move through life with a heart shattered to dust. Elio working his way through life with his heart missing until circumstances throw them together once again. Elio is so protective of Sienna and just belonging to him puts her life in danger - especially when it appears they have a threat with inside knowledge of Elio’s organization. The story moved quickly and action packed. The writing was beautiful and the chemistry between the characters was practically tangible. Fabulous read!
