Two years out of college, Angelica Bondesan spends her time working as a barista, keeping in touch with her prodigal brother, and trying to figure out how to bridge the gap with her father, a wealthy real estate developer. But all of that changes the night she’s kidnapped. Thrown into a windowless room, Angelica is positive there’s been some kind of mistake — until she meets Nico Vitale.
Gorgeous and frightening, Nico became the boss of New York City’s Vitale crime family after the execution style murder of his parents two years earlier. Since then he’s turned the old-school mob into a sleek, modern army of ruthless men who understand that physical violence — while always an option — isn’t the only way to get what you want.
Sure Nico is lying to her about her father’s involvement in the criminal underworld, Angel hates Nico with a vengeance. But when it become obvious nothing is as it seems, Angel is forced to face the truth:
Her father is not the man she believed him to be. Nico Vitale is dangerous, possibly lethal. She is falling in love with Nico Vitale.
As Nico and Angel begin to unravel the complex entanglements between their families, a new threat emerges from an unexpected place. Now Nico and Angel are on the run, desperate to get their hands on the one thing they can trade for their lives –and a chance to begin again.
