I’m a little out of review practice and I don’t want to give away too many spoilers. Here goes.

Esther E. Schmidt does it again with Ricca. What a rollercoaster ride, and I tell you, this book had everything. Hot alpha male, an amazing storyline, and a heroine that could kick some really serious ass. I adored Chiara so much. After everything she went through, to be forced into an arranged marriage. I felt for her. She’s had to be strong to be able to deal with what life has thrown at her.

Ricca, well, there were moments you want to slap him silly, BUT!!! Big but lol, he is the kind of guy that you are rooting for. Even when you don’t completely agree with everything he’s doing, his heart is in the right place, if that makes any kind of sense. Chiara needs Ricca, but not to take care of her. She can handle a lot, especially with everything she’s been through. With Ricca, she needs him to show her there’s good mixed in with all the bad.

I don’t want to give anything away because it will spoil the moments that I found really touching and sweet, and of course the bad ass moment. This is so frustrating.

I thoroughly enjoyed this arranged marriage, mafia story. It had everything I love about a good book. Thank you, Esther for letting me have an ARC. You’re amazing.
