My name may be Romeo, but I’m far from romantic. My brother betrayed the family, forcing me into the role of underboss beneath the criminal mastermind that is our father.

I’ve never been a merciless criminal, and my father tests my resolve by giving me a stolen woman, knowing the situation disturbs me. What he doesn’t know is the disheveled beauty intrigues me.

She tried to kill me with my own gun on the first night, pushing my fixation into a dangerous addiction.

She’s unknowingly teaching me the power I have, and now I’m going to take over my father’s empire.

It’s a cold dark path to the top and I’m finally ready to lead the way.
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

Seriously, this boy was lost and I spent the entire book trying to find him. This story told me who he was as a boy and who he hoped to be as a man and I was hooked on his journey.

He was broken. Confused. Lonely.

Born to a life of crime, when his brother betrays the family, Romeo is expected to step into his shoes. And he was okay with that until his father 'gifted' him a girl. Finding out his father deals in human trafficking changes things and Romeo is ready to shake things up and hopefully take the throne for himself.

This story was fast-paced and messed up. For the most part, I found it entertaining and while I didn't like any of the characters, I liked their connection. I probably would have enjoyed this more if the story that blossomed in the beginning between Romeo and The Girl was fleshed out for the rest of this story. The author's concept had so much potential and it fell just short of greatness.

M.N. Forgy was raised in Missouri where she still lives with her family. She's a soccer mom by day and a saucy writer by night. M.N. Forgy started writing at a young age but never took it seriously until years later, as a stay-at-home mom, she opened her laptop and started writing again. As a role model for her children, she felt she couldn't live with the "what if" anymore and finally took a chance on her character's story. So, with her glass of wine in hand and a stray Barbie sharing her seat, she continues to create and please her fans.
