I have been reading a lot of mafia books but I am not sure if I would classify it as a romance. It is a very dark Mafia story and it shows a lot of the different between the two main characters that come from very different works but some how meet in the middle.
Cord is the head of the Vitale family and wants something different out of life, but know that is the darkness and the only to keep his family save is to push all emotion a side and keep anyone from getting close to him. Ava is the daughter of the mayor who has no control over her life and she is a light that Cord has not seen before. Somehow they just work and the line about how can a devil love and angel. Epic.
