“Let’s never not know each other again.” Do you hear the yearning in those words? The need? The desire? Those words are heartbreaking and emotional. They beg for hope. For love. That is the story of Elise and Luca and their constant fight for the life they want together. I fell in love with both of these characters. Luca grabbed onto my heart and didn't let go. Who knew you could get so emotionally attached to a character? Ella sends you on a rollercoaster of emotions with this book. The mafia story plays a softer role which I really enjoyed because the focus on these two characters was really able to take front and center and shine! Their chemistry is fresh and sexy, leading up to very realistic intimate scenes that you can honestly relate to. I cannot wait for the next part of this Duet!

Our Favorite Quotes
He lies back again, folding his arms behind his head. He’s wearing a thin, white T-shirt, so I can see his biceps and his forearms in great detail. I can see the blueish veins beneath his soft skin. He looks like Michelangelo’s carved marble. If this were a snapshot, I would think he’s beautiful—a study in ruined beauty, maybe, with his eye the way it is.
We kiss until we can’t breathe. He wraps an arm around me, and the world constricts to just this moment, and it’s vast and slow and quick and frantic and so tender I feel like my heart is being tugged outward.
He breaks our eye contact to settle on his knees beside the couch. He leans down over me, presses his lips to mine. I can feel him waiting for me. He wants me to deepen the kiss, and I do. Every time he exhales, every time his chest pumps on a deep breath— I’m addicted to him. I need more of him; I need him closer.
From The Publisher
He's the broken prince who takes the train to my elite Uptown school.
I'm the pretend princess with her life mapped out.
We meet at a masquerade ball on the Upper West Side, and we both feel it. His bruises match my cracks. Our love cures everything that ails us. Or it should.
But this isn't a fairy tale. It's a tragedy.
We're tangled in a web of lies from the first moment, star-crossed long before we ever know what turns our story dark.
What should have been the perfect first love ends in bloodshed and so many broken things.
Luca Galante's not a prince at all. And this is a cautionary tale.
