Cursed, numb, rejected, scorned, wicked, sinister, dark, twisted...my name is Tex Campisi and this is my legacy. I killed my father in cold blood and lost my soul right along with him.
I crave war more than peace, and I'm about to take my place in history as the youngest Capo dei Capi in the Cosa Nostra...that is until someone stops me, saves me from myself.
But the only person able to do that...is my best friends sister, Mo Abandanato, and she just ripped my heart out and asked me to hold it in my hands while she put bullets through it.
Im cursed so I did it.
I'm numb so I held it.
I'm wicked so I liked it.
I used the pain Mo caused as a catalyst to turn into my biggest nightmare--the five families greatest enemy. It's my turn to take a stand, knowing full well I'm going to lose my mind to the madness that is the American Mafia. I've always been told Blood is thicker than life. I wish I would have listened. Because regardless of who you love? You will betray. You will kill.
Blood Always Wins.
The only way out is death...yours.
Welcome to the Dark Side of the Family.
Tex and Mo loved each other for years, they were a couple for a while too. But things changed, they both kept secrets that pulled them apart. For one more time, there were people who plot their destruction and their death. Meanwhile, everyone was expecting Tex's decision about claiming his birthright. His decision would change his life or end it. Tex wanted to end what his father started, he wanted to change his legacy and protect his sister. So they created a plan, one that could save their families or end them once and for all. The plan went well but there was a loss that hurt everyone deeply. The new era began with the four Elect as the leaders.
This is the less romantic and the darkest book in this series so far. It contains so much angst, lies, secrets, pain... It also has a few good love scenes and a happy ending, so I'm fine with it. The plot was brilliant, it has everything you need for a mafia story. Great characters, smart, sexy, loyal, determined (but you already knew that from the previous books). To me, Tex and Mo were a lot alike, they kind of lost their humour here, which was one of my favourite things about them. It is a nice book with lots of action but I prefer the other ones more.
