One mafia boss.
One rival's son.
One deadly setup.
Parties and orgies... those are the only things Carlos Carmichael wants to do. It's the only way he knows to deal with his life as the son of a notorious cartel boss. He'll get whatever he wants by any means necessary.
Until he tangles with a man who plays by totally different rules.
Dante Orsino has been raised in the old ways of honor, loyalty and respect of the business. His role as mafia underboss is more than just a job. It also makes him an heir to one of the biggest families in the Southern Territories.
When Carlos meets Dante and plays a silly game, their weekend tryst sparks a deadly cartel war.
For Dante there's no other life except—the life. And he wants Carlos in his. But in the New World, a gay man is a dead man. Can he find a way to keep everything he loves and stay alive?
In a new world gone mad, even the good guys are bad. Welcome to the World's End series.
Dante and Carl meet at an exclusive club. Carl knows right away he wants Dante. He sees him as the 3D's. Dark, Dangerous & Domineering. Perfect for what he has in mind.
Dante saved Carl's life, so he feels responsible for the kid. He does not think he is big enough or old enough to handle what he would give to him. Turns out that is not quite true...
When push comes to shove, all that matters is that Carl is willing to do what it takes to be where Dante is. Can Dante make a place in his carefully ordered life for him? All Carl wants is to be his.
There is more going on here, and Dante is right to be worried. It is a case of opposites attract. This is a great book of suspense and good banter. Sexy times, and dark and dangerous times. I loved how they could not deny one another even when they want to. Great second book in the World's End series.
