Irresistibly handsome, powerful and dangerous, Wolf Lone is a business man and mafia boss to the Japanese Mafia. Impeccably dressed in tailored suits, intelligent and successful, Wolf is a man that strikes both love and fear in the hearts of many. And what he wants, he always gets.

Diego is the cities most notorious gang leader. At twenty four, the sexy, vicious young man made quite the name for himself due to his dangerous nature. One night, he makes one dire mistake. He kidnaps Wolf Lone’s son.

Wolf takes Diego in return. What began as a plan to get his son back, becomes something heavier between both men. Dangerous men are not supposed to love, but Diego begins to catch feelings for the mafia boss, and Wolf intends to make Diego solely his.

But it will be a challenge. An irresistible one that melds both pain and pleasure into their lives.

This was an ok read. As far as the dark romance goes, I love them but this one really was not what I expected it to be. That being said, I still enjoyed the read but I felt it truly lacked some depth to it. I am not saying that to be mean. I am saying that because this was a good read but I honest believe that with some more input and more complexity it could have been an amazing read. As far as my thoughts on this book goes, I felt like this book was very predictable on what was going to happen and when it was going to happen. I wish there had been more push and pull between the main characters because honestly I felt like everything just fell into place way to easily, especially for the two main characters to be enemies and one kidnapped the others son.

Diego is a gang leader. He decides he wants to have more so he comes up with a plan to kidnap a Mafia bosses son for ransom. All goes according to plan when Levi is taken by his gang. But what he did not expect is for the retaliation from Wolf, the Mafia Boss, to be kidnapping Diego in return.

Once Diego finds himself in Wolf’s clutches, he expects the man to take his revenge out on him but not in the way that it happens. Wolf has decided that not only will Diego return his son to him but Diego is going to give himself to Wolf as well. This does not go over well with Diego and at first he fights for all it is worth. But in a turn of events for Diego, he realizes that he wishes that Wolf wanted him for real and not for just getting his son back.

What is going to happen once Diego gives in and gives everything to Wolf that he wants and is demanding? Can Diego give Wolf what he wants? And if he does what is going to happen to Diego after he does?

This was a decent read but with being a dark romance I expected so much more out of it. I honestly would not even call this a dark read but more like an enemies to lovers romance instead. I was kind of disappointed when I read this book but I do believe that some others will enjoy this read.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
