The Mafia And His Angel: Part 1 (Tainted Hearts) by Lylah James. --------
Cold. Ruthless. Killer. I am respected and feared by all.
I wasn’t put on this earth to love or be loved. I was put here to wipe out every last member of the damn Abandonato mafia, to pay them back for my mother’s death.
When I find a strange girl hiding, beaten, under my bed, I don’t let her live out of compassion. She’s a trinket, my plaything.
I thought Alessio was only one more man who wanted to use me, hurt me, and throw me away. I don’t know what it is to trust anymore. I can’t find my heart under the pain.
Alessio found it. He touched it, and brought it alive again.
But if he discovers just how dangerous I am to him…I’ll lose my life.
"...I had no choice, no will. No respect. No love. I had nothing..."
I admire her will to run until she couldn't run anymore. It shows how strong of a person she is. Determined to make it out of a horrible situation she was placed in by the hands of her father. I felt her frustrations and despair. Her escaping one dangerous situation only to land herself into a another one... a sexier one. *cough cough* 😏 Alessio.🌹 Note to self: Never Betray The King. Alessio isn't one to be messed with and there's a reason why he's feared and powerful. I was intrigued. Reading what he would do to those who betrayed his trust and position. Or more so, what he would do to the little kitten he found under his bed.😏 •
"..His presence made me nervous. Scared. And giddy..."
Ahhhh same Ayla. He's the definition of dark and beautiful. Even though he was pretty scary and had a gun pointed at her.😅 It was intense, electrifying, hot, nerve-racking, omg you name it!!!🔥 I was hanging on to every word. The power that radiated from him, like Ayla, I was drawn to his character.🙏🏽😚 Literally had me fidgeting and squealing with all these OTP feels.💚 •
