The moment I looked into his eyes, I knew I was in trouble.

The second I heard his name, I knew I should stay away.

Our fathers were mortal enemies—Chicago crime bosses from rival families.

But that didn’t stop Leo Conti from pursuing me.

Being together was dangerous, reckless, and totally hot.

He wanted me. I wanted him.

Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?

My Review

I didn’t think Chelle Bliss could create another Gallo female who could rival my love for Izzy Gallo, but Daphne Gallo is a close second, which is why it makes sense that she would fall for a guy who she has no business falling for and go through the torment and the trouble of giving into her attraction and desire for the enemy because sometimes the body and the heart come to an agreement that the head wants nothing to do with, but because it’s outvoted, it has to learn to deal with the hand it was dealt, which means figuring out a way to accept the fact that Leo Conti is the man Daphne wants, despite the plethora of reasons she should stay away.

Daphne and Leo come from rival families and the fact that their fathers hate each other illustrates just how ill-advised it would be for the children of mortal enemies to become involved, but hell if Leo isn’t one persistent alpha male who won’t stop until he claims the woman he wants desperately, which means that a shitstorm is headed their way and where these two end up due to the outside pressure on both sides of them will depend on a number of mitigating factors, forcing both Daphne and Leo to decide if betraying their family by being together is worth the wrath, the risk, and the devastation that it could possibly lead to when their forbidden love affair is brought out in the open.

Because Flow’s storyline is fast-paced, everything between Daphne and Leo moves forward quickly, forcing them to go all in with each other, risking so much more than just their hearts, because there’s nothing that two rival crime bosses won’t do  when it comes to protecting their own, but what they consider theirs may not but what readers expect.

I really enjoyed Daphne and Leo’s story. Daphne does remind me a lot of Izzy, but Daphne also has her own quirks and her resilience shines through in ways that truly define who she is all on her own and gives her a uniqueness that may be pure Gallo female but it’s also pure Daphne based on what readers learn about her throughout the course of her story. Leo is EVERYTHING! I loved his drive, his stubbornness, his cockiness; he has all the makings of a Chelle Bliss badass hero and his words and actions prove just who he is and what he’s made of, and it’s beyond obvious that his desire for Daphne is something he’s unwilling to give up without one hell of a fight. And, that’s what I find incredibly sexy about him.

I always love heading back into Chelle Bliss’ Gallo world; I’m so glad she branched off of the initial series to bring her readers more Gallo goodness, and I can’t wait for more.
