ARC was kindly provided from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who stopped believing in fairy tales after her innocence was stolen.

Morgan Myers is tired. So damn tired. Most people either push her around or brush her off, and she’s not putting up with it anymore. Determined to reclaim the life that had been stolen from her, she puts her trust in the last person she ever expected to: the notorious they call Scar. Morgan sees a side of him that few people seem to know—the man, not the myth. Lorenzo. And what she sees, she likes, a lot more than she thought she would.

But fairy tales aren’t real, as life likes to remind her. Some dragons, you just can’t slay, no matter how hard you fight them. And when hers comes back around, breathing fire, she’s forced to face some unimaginable horrors. But there’s a white knight in combat boots out there that isn’t afraid of monsters.

You see, it’s impossible to be afraid of something you see every day in the mirror.

5 stars! 

“You can call me sir, if it gives you the tingles. Otherwise, let’s just stick with Gambini.”

AHHHH THIS BOOK! First 5 star of the year! I hadn’t felt like this in a long time; when the book arrived on my Kindle, I opened it just to read the first chapter and go to bed. Yeah, like that ever happens. Two hours later I was in a state of shock – there might have been tears involved – and I was in love, completely in love. That ingredient that was missing from Menace and I always love in JMD books, was in abundance here.

Morgan and Lorenzo were amazing, taking about huge character development, especially for Morgan. I connected to her unlike the first book. I loved her, I felt for her, her pain was my pain, her sorrow was definitely my sorrow and I just wanted to put her in a tower so no one could hurt her.

Lorenzo, I’m telling you. He’s the Deadpool of mafia romance books.

“Threaten you?” I look at Seven. “Did I threaten him and already forget about it?”

He’s sarcastic, he’s the same guy who won’t call you by your name unless you’re in deep shit. There’s no way he won’t make you laugh out loud with the stuff that comes out of his mouth. He’s th same whether he wears a custom suit or combat boots. He and Morgan, they go through some pretty fucked up stuff in this one and OMG MY EMOTIONS! Also, I’d like to request Leo and Melody’s book. Please and thank you.
