This is book two which begins where the cliffhanger ending of book one leaves off. It gives a good summary of book one, but book one is so worth a listen!!! I recommend listening to book one first (but it is not really necessary).
In general, I do not care for cliff hangers. As book two was available when I read book one it was not a big deal for me. I immediately listened to book 2 in the series.Lorenzo and Scarlet begin to accept their life together .... although it is not a "defined" relationship as such. There are two broken people trying to cope in the violent world they were forced into.
Iggy Toma's performance made it a worth while listen. This series is the first time I had heard his performance and I will be sure to look for him again. He brought sarcasm and wit and developed Lorenzo's character brilliantly. I used a credit for both books and do not regret it! This story line checked all my boxes, strong female lead, excellent narration, well developed story line with a twist ...... I will look for this author again!

I listen to a lot of books, and even those that Ive loved in the past can not compete with these 2 books. They are perfectly coordinated. From the book cover looking exactly like I would have imagined him, to the most spot on narrators playing their roles perfectly, and finally- a really well written story. This tale straddles the lines of several genres, and does it with perfect balance. The romance is heart warming without being mushy, the sex is hot but not on every other page, the action is constantly moving but you never get lost.
Also, if you have a dry sarcastic sense of humor, you will find yourself laughing throughout both books. It's the ridiculous juxtaposition of a killer who can't get his straw into a Capri Sun. Or the insanity of a hard core mafia type killer who raised a brother that is totally straight laced. It leads to many laughable moments. I totally recommend that the stories be read in order. Heck, just read them!
