“I am a monster out of your worst nightmares.”
Max Ferrara is a madman and a monster, but it’s not his scarred face that makes him a beast. He kidnapped me and tied me to a chair in his basement. He asked me crazy questions about my father, the mayor—insane ramblings about how my dad worked with the Russian Bratva to destroy his Italian Mafia family over a decade ago. Max thinks I know something about this conspiracy, but he’s wrong; my dad is a good person.
Once he lets me go, I’m determined to prove to him that my father is innocent. I have to put a stop to his misguided vendetta. But the deeper I dig for evidence, the more dangerous my life becomes.
Max tells me there are other monsters lurking in the dark, and he intends to protect me from them. Whether I want him to or not.
The scariest thing? I’m starting to think that Max Ferrara might not be so monstrous, after all…
Max is determined to uncover the truth behind the misfortune that has struck his family and the legal problems that ensued. He believes that the mayor knows exactly what transpired and why but he also knows that he won’t get the information from him so he kidnaps his daughter to get her to confess all.
Allie has been protected her entire life, so she was unprepared to find herself abducted and being held prisoner. No one was more surprised than she was when he freed her but when she decides to prove that Max was wrong but as the danger escalates so does the chemistry.
Suspense, surprises and steam all lead up to a cliffhanger that leaves us wanting more of Max, Allie and their story.
