One night isn’t enough for a man who takes what he wants—and Luca will do whatever he can to possess his mysterious temptress…
Police detective Gabrielle Fawkes lives for revenge. She lost everything at the hands of an unforgiving ruler of the Vegas underworld. Now she wants to see him six feet under. But when a near-fatal attack leads her into Luca’s arms, what was meant to be one night of unbridled passion becomes something forbiddingly more.

Luca is the second book in the Ruin & Revenge series. This novel has it all - a capivating story, with a great mystery, and fantastic sexual chemistry. If you enjoy gritty Mafia reads, you will LOVE this book!  While this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone book.

Gabrielle and Luca both have painful pasts for different reasons and their lives are the complete opposite. Their lives dictate that they should not want each other like they do. If anything they should have feelings of hate towards each other. Ones a cop the other a mafia capo! but with secrets its easy to follow your heart for what you want.

"You don’t get guys like that out of your system. They ruin you for all other men." 

   Gabrielle's husband was murdered, and she has had a thirst for revenge ever since. When she is shot in the line of duty, she encounters a sexy as sin Italian man at the hospital who completely throws her for a loop she never saw him coming!! Luca, who is also in the hospital recovering from a gunshot is instantly drawn to her his hardened heart shouldn't want her but he finds himself craving her. 

"Deep down in your very heart, you want the kind of vengeance only I can give you."

 I was pulled in from the start and couldn’t help but be intrigued and captivated by Luca and Gabrielle. Everything screams at you that they shouldn't be together. Any type of relationship between the two of them should be forbidden and doomed from the start. But with amazing chemistry if they want to be together, they are going to have to defy all the odds. And fight for what they want, family values and loyalty will be tested. And Gabrielle's thirst for justice will put her in more danger than she could ever imagine.

 With surprising twists this was a action packed gritty read. And i'm looking forward to Rocco's book in the new year!
