Author: Bella Jewel

Release Date: September 19, 2016
“It is not love that defines us, Julietta. It is love that destroys us.”
I’m just a normal girl.
Or so you would think.
I’ve never thought of myself as anything different.
Until I met him.
He doesn’t think I’m normal.
He thinks I’m special.
Special enough to be in his life.
Special enough to enter his world.
Special enough for his bed.
Rafael Lencioni. Dangerous. Beautiful. Terrifying.
My story is the one that’s never told.
I’m not the daughter.
I’m not the wife.
I’m not a sister or a mother.
I'm not his enemy and I'm not his friend.
I’m not who you think I am.
So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.
Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.
I have to change who I am.
I have to shut down my heart.
I have to accept my place.
My body belongs to him.
My heart isn’t permitted to.
Those are his rules.
But rules were made to be broken…right?

So this is a different story to which Bella would normally write and boy was I happy with the change.
I was held captive by the story and read it in 1 sitting. Rafael was everything you expected as a mafia boss, dominant, controlling, dangerous and the perfect alpha male and Jullieta was fun, sassy, strong and the perfect leading lady.
Jullieta is on a night out with her best friend, drinking and having fun in a club owned by the Mafia. Letting their hair down they decide to up their game but they also poke the bear. When Jullieta is confronted by a fine specimen of a man she finds herself getting more than she bargained for. This is not normally her MO but she couldn't say no, however when she finds out that he is the Boss she runs.
Rafael wants the beauty before him, he is a little upset when she runs after finding out his true identity but he doesn't let that deter him. He is married to a woman who knows this life and who is supposed to have his sons however its not unheard of to take a mistress. He has had a few but none of them ever last.
But there is something different about Jullieta and he needs to find a way to have her.
When she hears his proposition she knows she shouldn't agree but this man sparks a fire in her and she cant ignore the chemistry between them. With all their cards on the table they embark on a passionate affair but it could never be that easy could it?
With things in Rafael's life becoming difficult, he needs to make sure no one is caught in the cross fire. He knows someone is trying to bring him down but he doesn't know who. Can he keep them all safe?
With secrets being kept and twist and turns coming from all angles, I was kept on the edge of my seat...never knowing what was going to happen next.
Then the cliffhanger ending had me wanting to throw my kindle at a wall....WTF...Did Bella just go there....Oh she went there and left me hungry and screaming for more. I'm just glad we haven't got a long wait for the next book!!!
