4.5 stars 

Castello vows to his mother that he will get his revenge after his father and brother die. Taking over the family business, Castello starts to put his plan in motion. To exact that revenge Castello and his younger brother Vico go after Tatum. 

Castello is heartless. He is so obsessed with getting his revenge that it's all he can focus on. I really didn't like him to start with. He's a dark, heartless, bitter man and I couldn't see any redeeming qualities in him except his loyalty to his family. His family are the most horrid, evil, heartless people ever. His mother especially made my skin crawl with the absolute bitterness and hate inside her. She's a horrible, manipulative woman. Comparing Castello to them, he's actually not that bad. The more I read and the more I started to find out about him, it all slowly started to win me over. Im kind of ashamed to admit by the time i was halfway through, I loved him. 

Tatum has always distanced herself from her families business. When her boyfriend disappears, she assumes he's left her, never expecting to be the person his brother is going after for revenge over his death. With her pleas of innocence falling on deaf ears, Tatum finds herself scared, locked up and having to cope with not only Castello but his brother Vico aswell. She has no choice other than to find her back bone and go up against the Fattore brothers. 

But things are very rarely what they seem and when Castello starts to see this, he's determined to get to the bottom of what's going on. With betrayal, lies, envy and the need for revenge tearing his family apart, Castello finds himself conflicted about what to do and it made him seem more human. He's not as heartless as I originally thought and I really enjoyed seeing his character evolve during this book. 

I really enjoyed this story. Even though I hated Castello at the start, Bella J somehow managed to change my mind about him. Tatum is a really likeable character, with her quiet strength and genuine confusion, I wanted her to come out on top. 

Be warned, this book has some scenes that are uncomfortable to read so if you like your stories full of unicorns and flowers, this may not be for you.
