When love is on the line, right and wrong no longer matter for this forbidden couple.
Lawyer by day, criminal by night. A life constantly in conflict.
That’s the life I chose when I took competing oaths.
One to uphold the law. One to put La Cosa Nostra above all else.
All in a quest for revenge that I walked away from in the end.
Now, I’m tangled more tightly than ever, and it’s about to blow up in my face.
Because Special Agent Athena White knows far too much about the kind of man I am.
And the closer she gets to unraveling the web I wove, the more irresistible I find her.
I’ll do whatever I have to do to possess her.
Even if it means destroying her world.
Run, rabbit, run.
Being assigned Diego Butera’s case should have been a crowning moment.
Instead, it’s turned into my own personal nightmare.
The only reason I’m in Chicago is because my boss wants me to fail.
Every other agent has for the last year. Why should I be any different?
Diego thinks he can outmaneuver me. My boss thinks he can get rid of me.
They’ve both underestimated me.
I’m not so easily fooled. I know precisely who Diego is and what’s at stake.
The only problem? Every time Diego touches me, the less his crimes seem to matter.
He’s a monster. But I’ve always liked the dark.
Perhaps a little too much.
Because right now, the fact that I might not survive it isn’t even enough to stop what’s happening between us.
If you enjoy steamy age-gap romance, obsessed antiheroes with heart, and sassy, curvy heroines, you’ll love Diego and Athena’s scorching-hot romance.
