Sergio!!!! As I'm typing that review I'm trying to keep my emotions in check because you don't want to know what happens in that story. YOU. DON'T. WANT.
But OMG, guys!!!!
If you're familiar with the Benedetti brothers, you obviously know who Sergio is. If not, Sergio is where you can start.... good luck, haha...
That book is brilliant is its execution and its storyline. Totally captivating, with characters who are going to take you into their world, share with you their deepest fears and hopes and desires.
Natalie is your "regular" girl, she could be me or you, simply a student at the "Wrong place. Wrong time." You can call it bad luck, or destiny. I think she and Sergio simply were meant to be. And because she is innocent, far from all that cruel mafia world, she is very easy to relate to. I loved that she fights him and speaks her mind in spite of Sergio's intimidating persona. First son of the Benedetti family Sergio is meant to succeed his father. He is ruthless, violent but fair. As the story unfolds, the more we learn about him and the complexity of his life, the more I succumbed to him. He is perfect.
Reading Sergio was like witnessing the most intimate scenes between him and Nat. Raw, painful, almost violent but honest and conveying so much beauty, I found here some of the best scenes I have ever read. There was poetry in the tragedy.
Fast paced, with some action scenes, that book gripped my heart and my belly from the start, only to leave me a true mess by the end. The weigh of the mafia life was tangible, with its implications and threats, the need for protection and the urgency to live and to love. It was pure magic; Thank you Natasha for writing the book that satisfies the need of closure we all had after the first two books.
"Mine. No matter what. Remember?"

I’m the first-born son of the mafia king. The favorite. Destined to rule, I’m a dangerous man, a ruthless one. But in my world, you have to be.
Then Natalie stumbles into my life. Wrong place. Wrong time.
Twice, fate put her in my path.
Twice, fate placed the innocent lamb at the mercy of the monster.
I gave her a chance to walk away. Told her it would be better for her if she did.
But she didn’t listen.
And now it’s too late.
Because I’m not good. I never wanted to be. And I won’t let her go anymore. See, I’m not the hero. When I touch her, it’s with dirty hands.
I know my reckoning is coming though. I know I’ll burn for the things I’ve done, the sins I’ve committed. And I don’t deny hell is where I belong, but I want my time first. I want my time with her.
No matter what.
