Ruin (The Corruption Series, #2)

Antonio is a killer.
He's beautiful, educated, a prodigy of a thief and as violent a man as ever came off the boat from Napoli.

Theresa knows it, but that doesn't stop her from getting emotionally and physically entangled with him, and this is how, maybe, she got it in her head that she can protect him.

But it's not her job to save him, and she's just not getting that. Every time she tries to protect him, she practically gets him killed, and the tighter he grips her, the more dangerous she becomes.

It's almost as if...well, he'd never admit this....but it's almost as if protecting her the way he does is he one thing he should stop. As if the only way he's ever going to find a moment's peace is to just embrace her as a partner, rather than a defenseless creature.

But he'd never do that. Not this violent man.

WARNING: This book contains delicious sex scenes with a hot man dirty-talking in Italian; women handling firearms and explosives; and scenes of violence with a crystal Virgin Mary cigarette lighter.

5 "I Need More Capo" Stars I suppose it would be rude to say thank you C.D. Reiss for another gripping and wonderful installment in the life of Spin, the sexy Capo who will fill knock your socks off, but please get busy writing and give me more Capo. It is essential you read this series in order with Spin being the first book and this being the second in the series. Unlike me, you would probably benefit from reading The Songs of Submission series first, but I haven't and I still have loved this series. Theresa Drazen is evolving from the prim and proper heiress to the down and dirty corrupt Contessa. Her love for Capo goes deep and in getting to the heart of her feelings for him she has to shed her old self and embrace a new life. The only issue is that Antonio/Capo struggles with his desire for having Theresa, his Contessa, and seeing her integrate herself into his world. This book is an amazing ride into the world of corruption and politics. But despite the chaos abound, it is the love story of these two that will draw you in. Theresa and Antonio have chemistry which is off the charts. There struggles with their character change are real and raw. Honestly there are moments when I am angered by Capo even though his heart is in the right place. More importantly I found myself enjoying every bad ass change Theresa goes through. I love the way she handles her ex Daniel. She is fierce in her love for her Capo and she isn't dissuaded by his concern for her. Yet my favorite is when she puts Irene in her place---loved it. My only concern is that despite her change and her love for Capo, I worry that Theresa will struggle with her concerns for her family. I seriously think this is why I need to plow through the Songs of Submission series, and luckily for those like me who haven't read it, the first book is currently free on Amazon.  So yes, I highly recommend this book and this series. If you are looking for the warm fuzzy feel after reading a romance novel, then this may not be the book for you. However, if you want to put your big girl panties on and brace yourself for a crazy romance that will leave you longing for the next in the series, don't wait...one click it now. Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

OMG! Ruin is just jaw dropping and completely amazing! It sucks
OMG! Ruin is just jaw dropping and completely amazing! It sucks you in and takes you on a ride you never thought possible! CD is just an amazing writer, she drew me in with the Songs of Submission series and now I'm in deep with the Songs of Corruption series as well! (Can't forget her Songs of Perdition series either!) Ruin is sooo captivating it's hard not to try and read it in one sitting. Antonio and Theresa are crazy together but even more crazy apart. They  are so passionate about each other and have no other choice but to choose each other and deal with whatever problems come their way!!
