Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-raw and imaginative 4.25 stars-- NICO is the first installment in Sarah Castille’s contemporary, adult RUIN AND REVENGE erotic, mafia romance series. This is Las Vegas Mafia boss Nico Toscani, and computer hacker Mia Cordano’s story line. Told from several third person points of view including Nico and Mia NICO focuses on the rivalry between two warring Mafia families-the Toscanis and the Cordanos. Years earlier Nico Toscani’s father was gunned down by a member of the Cordano crime family and in the ensuing years Nico has slowly planned his blood debt but when a sexy computer hacker hired by Nico’s security firm hacks into Nico’s heart our (anti) hero is taken by surprise to discover she is the daughter of his Las Vegas enemy. Enter Mia Cordano, the woman who will steal Nico’s heart. Mia is a head strong, high spirited and courageous woman whose fashion sense borders on the gothic and punk; the daughter of the Cordano Don, Mia is a woman who refuses to accept her position within the Mafia family. Following years of abuse at the hands of her father and his men, Mia has ventured out on her own only to be pulled back in when her father has promised her, as payment, to the Toscani family. Nico is a man determined to destroy the man who took his father’s life but his attraction to Mia places Nico in a precarious position when the two families find themselves in a literal war. Nico’s place within the family is questioned and he has yet to assume the mantel of Don due in part to his mother’s status; he has a softer heart than most men in his position. The relationship between Mia and Nico begins acrimoniously. Mia was hired to hack into Nico’s computers, and Nico believes our heroine is responsible for a bloody vendetta between the families. Mia and her sister are nothing more than a bargaining tool for the Cordano family, and it is Nico’s life that is threatened when Mia refuses to abide by the family rules. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. We are introduced to several member of the Cordano and Toscani families-both by blood and by Mafia association. Not everyone will survive. NICO is a dark, gritty and somewhat brutal look at life in the Mafia. Women are considered fodder; collateral damage in a war between two powerful families; nothing more than a byproduct of negotiation and exchange. Some readers may find the treatment of women vulgar and abusive but such is the life in Sarah Castille’s Mafia families. NICO is an abrasive, raw and imaginative story line about forbidden love, Mafia politics, power and control. The premise is emotional and heartbreaking; the characters are controversial, tragic and colorful; the romance is provocative and passionate. NICO is a seductive and dramatic story line from the pen of Sarah Castille.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. Wow! This book was fantastic! Oh, Nico! Wow. Wow! This book was fantastic! My husband is a Sopranos junkie; I could never get into it, but if they had guys like Nico on that show, I might become its biggest fan! Mia was a heroine unlike any I have read. She is the antithesis of the typical "romance novel heroine" or "damsel in distress" with her grunge/Goth style and "go F yourself" attitude. I, personally, didn't find her obnoxious, just severely independent. Enter Nico. He also has his personality quirks; very Type A and alpha, yet hiding a side of him that no one knows about. I loved reading about the connection he and Mia have, both from their history together and at their reunion (which was nothing short of hot and hilarious). Speaking of hot, HOLY SMOKES. I mean, the love scenes were nothing less than 5-alarm hotness, but also laced with sincere emotion, not just base need. I had a few "OH MY GOSH!!!!" moments, especially with one of the minor characters in the book. Sarah is so good that I could feel the character's fear, and I was about to throw my Kindle at the injustice of what was about to happen to him. No spoilers :) I am THRILLED that this is part of a series (a standalone, for sure), because I met some characters who I can't wait to read more about! I LOVED this book!!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
