On the Flap
Serenity Bishop is a work of art. Her skin a canvas, decorated with the scars of her evil captor’s twisted abuse. But her tormentor, Angelo, is about to lose control.
Zachary Schiavelli is an art thief and forger. His handsome face is merely the mask that hides a cold, calculating man whose own childhood of abuse has honed him into a remorseless killing machine.
Zachary is about to take an intense disliking to Angelo.
Sometimes you need to fight fire with fire.

A complete novel with no cliffhangers.
A violent tale of mob rule and dark romance. Warning contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. Adults only
This novel wasn't at all what I was expecting. I was expecting a dark erotic novel, which it was at times but in the heart of it, it was actually a romantic/organized crime thriller.
The two main characters are Serenity, who was sold to an abusive son of a mob boss. By his hand, she had endured months of torture and sexual abuse. Despite how she was being treated, she never lost her fighting spirit. She was one tough bitch who did not take crap from anybody.
The other main character is Zachary. He was a cunning, quick thinking art thief who took Serenity as payment for a job he did for the Don Vicente much to his son’s protests. In the beginning, Zachary was a tough one to figure out. One minute he would be taking such good care of Serenity and then the next he was being rough and commanding with her. Like all good stories, this one had many twists and turns. I liked that AJ didn't leave any loose ends. I am not a fan of loose ends. I especially liked the ending with Zachary and Serenity. They were two tumultuous and rough characters that can be a force to be reckoned with to the outside world but behind closed doors they are beautiful and heart warming. “The Degas Girl” was a wonderful story and very much worth a read.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
