For police woman Gabrielle Fawkes there is only one thing
that is holding her shattered world together and that is
revenge. Her husband was killed by a drug lord and all she
can think about is getting the guy. At least until a chance
shooting sends her to the hospital and to LUCA.
Luca Rizzoli knows all about betrayal and revenge but this
Las Vegas crime boss has hardened his heart and won't be
struck again. Until the mysterious angel who joins him in
the hospital. How would it be even possible for the
criminal and a cop to fall in love? It's against both
worlds rules. But love has a way of fixing even the most
impossibilities into exactly what people don't even know
they are seeking.
In LUCA author Sarah Castille blurs the line between good
guys and bad guys until her readers are just to immersed in
the book to care for anything but the survival of Luca and
Gabby, and reading as quickly as you can to find out how
they work things out. Reading LUCA is really refreshing as
having read a number of "mafia" and "bad boy" romances, I
found the male leads to be overly crude and foul mouthed
(and yes I know swearing and dirty talk is in real life an
everyday thing, I've even sworn a time or two), but too
much can be too much. LUCA managed to be realistic without
Both Luca and Gabby try to keep their hearts out of
whatever it is that is happening between them, but life,
love and lust just have a way of changing a lot of ideas.
It was fascinating watching the two worlds collide and then
reform for the two of them. Ms. Castille put in a lot of
fun and/or realistic characters to add to the color of this
story-line as well as throwing in a number of twists,
especially the one concerning the drug lord. Wow, did
not see that one coming at all.
If you want sexy man with a good bit of criminal, strong
woman with a head for what's really right and wrong, a
twisted world that only these lovers can navigate, action
and danger then LUCA is just what you want to read.

under. But when a near-fatal attack leads her into Luca’s
