INTENSE!!!!!!! THIS. SERIES. IS. FUCKING. INTENSE.
I think I have a new fave author. ❤
I have read a lot of anti-heroes series and this had the feels of A. Zeverelli’s Bleeding Heart’s Series. Especially in the 2nd book where we read the male character’s POV. But since the authors way of of writing are not the same , you can definitely differentiate the two series. What I love more about Mia Knight is that she focused more on emotions and traits of each characters. It’s not like over the top too much thinking from heroine when it feels like redundant everytime she talks about her feelings. I really really like the way the author portray the characters and how she attacks the storyline. She knows when to take it up a notch and when will feel like everything is mild.
This is the story of Layla Dalton who fell in love with a Las Vegas Crime Lord -Gavin Pyre and was crushed and burned when she caught him cheating on her. On top of that, she saw him killing someone in their basement with his own hands that led to her decision to fled and leave him. But after three long years, Gavin found her and blackmailed her to return in exchange for her good-for-nothing father’s life. Thus, the start of Layla-Gavin emotional roller coaster ride just to get through their relationship. I swear I am a mess while reading just Book 1! And don’t start me with that ending cliffhanger! Thank God Book 2 is already available when I read this. And Recaptured by the Crime Lord was all about new life together as husband and wife. Since we have Gavin’s POV, we also learned how darkness and danger are still around the corner since they haven’t found the killers of Manny and Vinny. Even though it is a little lighter than the first book, it still as emotional and desperate as any book. I just love Gavin Pyre in 2nd book. He is more human in a sense that he is don’t shy to admit his weakness when it comes to Layla. So much death in this series and I cry along with the characters since I super duper adore the supporting casts. Manny, Vinny, and Carmen are totally the bomb. And in some way, I understand why Gavin reacts the way he did when they died. Totally love this series and I cant damn wait for Book 3!!!! Give me Book 3!!!!!
