I WARNED HER.
I told her not to set foot in my casino again. 
I told her to stay away.
Because if I see those hips swinging around my suite, I’ll pin her against the wall and take her hard. 
And once I make her mine, I’m not gonna set her free. 
I’m king of the Vegas underground and I take what I want. 
So she’d better run. 
Stay the hell away from my casino. 
Or I’ll tie her to my bed. 
Put her on her knees. 
Break her.

Okay, I am not one to really give bad reviews. Even the lowest stars are 3 because I’m just happy when people follow their dreams. I guess I am just used to reading things so much darker than this.

Nico was hot, there is no doubt about it. He is the 4th son of Kingpin. He will never rule he wanted to be legit. He owns Bellissima a casino that is backed by his family to launder money. That is really the only thing illegal about him. Other than that, he runs a tight ship. No women, no drugs, no gun selling.

He only allows a certain few housekeepers to clean his room, one day all of those cleaner coincidently called out sick. Sondra told her boss that she will help. Well something happened to that boss’s son and she had to go leaving Sondra alone to clean this guys place.

Nico came home, thought she was a spy held a gun to her head and watched her freak out. I would love to say that it got darker after that. It didn’t, this book was about the conflict Nico felt about Sondra. She is too nice, too innocent, too pure to be with a man like him.

I don’t understand what he meant by that when all he does that is “Illegal” is launder money. Even when he found out that these dudes were selling drugs, he gave them a stern talking to and told them to leave. They did because they heard rumors about him. But he didn’t have to lift a hand to convince these guys.

It wasn’t a bad book; it was repetitive at times but other than that. It was sweet. Not dark. Very sweet.
