A dangerous proposal

Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . .

Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them—and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire?

Previously, I shared an excerpt of Sarah Castille’s Nico, her first book in her new mafia series.  Here is my review.


Nico by Sarah Castille is book one in her new mafia series, Ruin and Revenge. Filled with drama, action, and suspense this sexy romance had everything.

Mia Cordano is a computer hacker and runs the best cyber-security firm in Las Vegas. Hired to test out the security system, unnoticed, for Nico Toscani’s Casino Itaia.

She finds herself face to face with her past. A mafia princess, unable to escape the control of her ruthless father, finds herself now staring in the devastatingly handsome eyes of her enemy all grown up.

Nico Toscani, a bastard son of his father, has been seeking revenge against the Cordano family since they killed his father years ago. This war between their two families is coming to a head , and Nico and Mia are right in the middle of it.

It all comes down to who and what is more important.

I loved the intrigue, suspense, and variety of characters in Sarah Castille’s Nico. My favorite character was Mia. I loved her punk rock look and her confident attitude. She also loves her family and even will risk her happily ever after to ensure they are safe. Another character I liked was Big Joe, a secondary character but he had depth and hard choices. I would love to see a small side story with him and another supporting character. Just to find out what happens after.

Overall, Nico by Sarah Castille was a great first book to a new series. I enjoyed it and I can’t wait for Luca’s book.

(I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.)
