Man oh man...the start of a beautiful series. The first book introduces you into this world of crime, drama and passion. Not only is there passion between couples but passion for the life they are all living. There are ups and downs in the life of the Chicago Outfit. The only way to survive is to follow the rules. Made up of four families, DeLucas, Trentinis, Contis, and Rossis, they are in control of Chicago. When the top boss is no longer the top, tensions rise to figure out who will be the leader overall. Although there is war, you can always find love in the mix. No matter what happens around them, they will all find ways to protect the ones they love. 


The way Damian holds this protectiveness over Lily is one of the most romantic gestures in this series. Although placed in an arranged marriage, this enemies to lovers story. Damian has always had a connection to her but Lily didn't trust anyone. While that trust builds slowly throughout the book between them, love builds along the way. My favorite part of the story are the gestures Damian make to ensure Lily's happiness stays intact. You don't want to mess with him. 


Alessa and Adriano...I don't know where to start! So much unfolds in this book in the series. It's were everything starts getting really intense. Not only is there tension between all the families. There is a different tension between Alessa and Adriano. When they are in the same room...they don't have eyes for other people but each other. One look from Adriano will make Alessa weak at the knees. There love is so strong...nothing can pull them apart.


Theo is one attractive fella and Evelina balances out his nature so well. It doesn't matter how many problems they encounter, they will always find a way to get through the them together. Theo never thought he has the capability to love with the past he had. When Evelina came into his life...he just doesn't know how she can change him in the best possible ways.


Four years. Four years of sneaking around and staying hidden. A forbidden romance that can be used as a tactic if discovered. There is no possible way Tommas will ever let Abriella be used as a pawn in her family. All he wants for her is to be happy and he would do anything to make it happen. The attraction between the two is off the charts because the love is already there (even if it is not said). When love comes into play, the sexy scenes get quite steamy. Since they already have four years under their belt of discovering how their connection works as a couple, it just feels natural. All the anger from unfolding events will play a part of it. Their love is just as intense as the war happening around them.


The connections between all characters in the same generation (Damian, Lily, Theo, Evelina, Adriano, Alessa, and Tommas) are so beautifully written. I love how they are extremely close and continue to watch each others' backs. It feels like they are apart of one big family rather than four different families. They know each others' secrets and make sure to protect those who matter. While the older members in the families try to fight for the top seed, one of them has to put a stop to it all before the most important ones die.
