Jess's Review ~ Beautiful Criminal by M.N. Forgy

Beautiful Criminal (Omertà Law, #1)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I devoured this book. It was one that once I started, I did not want to stop.

Kieran DeAngelo was brought up to be the monster that he is today. At a very young age, he wanted to be the boss, to be the one in charge, so he became what he needed to be to one day take over. Growing up in the life of an Omerta made him become a particular type of person, with a particular set of rules. But when his life plans are thrown a curveball, all bets are off. Kieran is cold and all business, with a need to please his father even though their relationship is complicated. But there is this little itty-bitty softness to his hard shell.

Leona Bravado grew up a mafia princess, not really taking her rightful place and living just on the inside of a bubble of her own making. Being in the wrong place, at the wrong time, leads to one rollercoaster she never saw coming. I enjoyed Leona's character, she is learning to find her voice and backbone.

The DeAngelo's and the Bravado's are sworn enemies but throw in a twist of fate and a little Romeo and Juliet and we have our selves the making of series I cannot wait for more of. The overall story is far from over. There is a war coming and even those on the "same side" are not in it together. There is a lot of work to be done, trust to form, and perhaps a few heads to roll. The seeds of this story have been placed and there are a million ways it can all go down. I loved that there were pieces that took me by surprise and made this story feel fresh. I am dying to know who's book will be next as there are so many possibilities, but regardless I am all in.
