Rocco is the third book in the Ruin & Revenge series by author Sarah Castille.  This story is completely mesmerizing and there was nothing stopping me from reading this gripping novel, not even a cold with a 102 fever! To fully appreciate the storyline, I do believe it would be best to start at the beginning of the series.  I also suggest this because I love the characters and their stories!

Rocco was a bit of a mystery to me and I knew of him as a scary enforcer in the De Lucchi family, from New York.  I wondered who could break through his fortress of ice and Grace, the daughter of the New York Underboss, is a perfect character.   The storyline is well developed and showed the development of the characters well.

Another fabulous story by Sarah Castille! I love this series and I can’t wait for the next one!

I just love Nico!

I have a weakness for strong, demanding, and powerful alpha males. The kind you wouldn’t think twice when they make demands. Well, Nico Toscani is that kind of man and I find him completely yummy! Mia Cordano is the daughter of the rival mob boss and she is not the typical mob princess. She is strong willed and continues to fight for what she believes in. Mia and Nico are not supposed to associate with each other, but their connection is sizzling! What will happen when both families begin to fight? Will Nico and Mia walk away from each other and follow their families demands or fight for their relationship?

Nico is the first book in Sarah Castille’s new series Ruin & Revenge. The characters are well developed and I was drawn into the story line. Not only do I love powerful alpha male, but I love reading a story with a strong-willed woman. Mia fought for what she believed in and I love her for that.

A wonderful story! A definite #OneClick story!

Luca is the second book in the Ruin & Revenge series by Sarah Castille. Before you begin Luca, I recommend you read Nico, the first in the series. I just love Nico and I think it will give you a good foundation to truly appreciate Luca.

Ms. Castille did a fabulous job of setting up the characters in the first book.  I began Luca already respecting the characters and couldn’t wait to read their story!  The book begins in a hospital room after Luca was shot.  (btw – I just love how he got all dressed up, refusing to wear the hospital gown.)  Anyways, since the hospital was busy, they brought in another gunshot victim to stay in the same room. Gabrielle is a police detective although, Luca is not aware of this.  While healing from their wounds, Gaby and Luca begin to talk and they form a bond.  What will happen when Luca finds out what Gaby does for a living?  What will Gaby do when Luca is threatened?

Another fabulous story by Sarah Castille!  The characters are so well developed and I was drawn into the story line. I absolutely recommend this series!
