Deathless & Divided by Bethany-Kris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Standalone - The Chicago War #1
Release: September 7, 2015
Length: 245 pages

Lies and love. This is how a war starts.

A life for a life. That’s the mafia way. Damian Rossi owes his life to a man who is ready to collect. That payment comes in the form of an arranged marriage to the daughter of another leading family in the Chicago Outfit. He’s ready to follow through, even if that means making sure Lily knows she’s his.

Lily DeLuca isn’t being given a choice. Forced home to marry a man she doesn’t know and back into a life she’d rather forget, her world is full of half-truths, buried pain, and uncertainty. But Damian is nothing like she expects. His motives aren’t clear. Her beliefs are being tested.

When it comes to this world, no man can be trusted. Someone is ready to flip the Chicago Outfit on its side all for the promise of something better. But no one runs a clean game and these men play for keeps. When blood begins to paint Chicago red, four families will be divided by loyalty, hatred, and revenge. There is no hiding. There is no safety.

No one is deathless.

No one.

My Review

When it comes to mafia romance, Bethany-Kris brings it!

Lily was a little hard to like at first but Damian was easy to love. I loved how disciplined he was. He was a killer/hitman for the mob and had no qualms about his jobs. No conscience. No shame. No regrets. And yet he had so much heart, especially when it came to Lily. I loved the lengths he was willing to go to in order to protect her. I loved his stillness, his silence, his observations and his intellect. I loved how he loved Lily.

Now there's a war amidst the family (thanks Dino!) and I wonder if Damian and Lily will remain safe. I wish book 2 was also about them, but alas it was not meant to be. Who will come out on top in the end?
