He consumed my mind.
I never even crossed his.
From the moment I met Michael, mysteriously brooding and dressed like a dark angel, there was something electric between us. Or so I thought. What I believed was a seductive and undeniably raw attraction has ended up being something else entirely, something I never foresaw. Because he’s a skilled liar and a master manipulator, and I downright misread his intentions. And now I’m afraid that falling for the man in black might become my biggest regret.


An overwhelming remorse haunts me after losing my fiancée, but I’m not a man who can afford to lower my guard. I’m a ruthless criminal, one of the top members of the merciless mafia, the Chicago Syndicate, and I moved back home to keep to myself and do a job. But when a curvaceous pastry chef with a beautiful smile and a possible link to my former life catches me in a reckless moment, I’m forced to watch her and strategize a plan. Because I’m not sure if she’s out to get me or if she’s just an innocent civilian who doesn’t know that the restaurant she works at is actually a front to launder Syndicate money. And I intend to find out if she’s playing me while I’m playing her. But then the demons that haunt me force me to make a huge mistake…

Deceit has a price—I just have to make sure I don’t pay with her life.

A standalone novel from the Chicago Syndicate world.

My Review:


First off, let me say that I adore this cover! I love the beautifully dark vibe it gives off and then that little pop of color (full disclosure, red is my favorite color lol) makes is amazing.

As for the book itself, I liked the characters even though they made me want to punch them in the throat on several occasions. I loved the growth that Brielle made from her first interactions with Michael to when he came back. I was glad that she had Fallon in her corner. However, I felt like she was a little too easygoing at certain points (Michael clearly needed a few  slaps). That said, I liked that she was so mature for certain situations. It made me like her more. As for Michael, I actually enjoyed the second look at him. The first made me almost hate him, but he was still a sweetheart. and he was gorgeous, so there's that, lol.

I liked the flow of the action in this book. It kept me entertained and I felt like everything made sense. It was tame compared to other mafia related books I've read (violence was mentioned and hinted at, but outside of a couple of incidences, it wasn't as detailed as I expected). I also enjoyed the secondary characters, even though this is the first book I've read in the series. One thing left unresolved for me was Ivo. I don't want to reveal too much, but the extra phones was never really explained.

Overall, I liked the book and would recommend it to others.

**I received an ARC and voluntarily reviewed.**
