Series: The Corruption Series #1
Author: CD Reiss
Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.
Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.
And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.
I discovered I was a savage, too.-Goodreads
Review: Unpopular review time. I love CD Reiss and I love her other series focusing on Jonathon and Fiona Drazen. I did not enjoy this book. Theresa Drazen is an accountant whose ex-fiance (who is running for mayor) cheated on her. There is nothing remotely interesting about her. She falls into insta-lust/love with Antonio Spinelli, a capo for a crime family. One of the first times she sees Antonio, she has taken her alcoholic sister out to a bar (yes, she knows her sister has a drinking problem and INVITES her anyway), her sister vomits on a car, and then Antonio punches a guy in the face. He then shoves the guys bloody face into the car and makes him lick the vomit. i kid you not. Theresa is not disgusted by this. Unfortunately, I was. Moving on...You would think Theresa would have a moral problem with his line of work as she is very straight laced. She is able to get over it very quickly. They barley have any conversations, their relationship is almost all physical. These scenes aren't even that sexy (especially the shower scene featuring conditioner-yikes). Very disappointed in this one.
