People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.
Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I'm anything but weak.
My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love.
I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want.
I'm infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy--the underboss of the Philadelphia mob.
It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now.
Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.
I LOVED this book, freaking loved everything about it the story the characters Soloman and Reina are like Bonny and Clyde on steroids only much more maniacal.
Soloman is the bad boy from the wrong side of town, he lives with his drug addict mother with no live or affection and no hope for the future. Reina is the girl who should have it all, she goes the right school, wears the latest fashion, has rich parents but she goes looking fit something more and meets Soloman.
I stayed up until 2am reading I was just so invested on the story. The character development of Soloman is amazing, we get to see him grow from the young punk in the neighbourhood that everyone avoids to the man he was always destined to be. Is he a good man ? From the start we see his sociopathic tendencies who has no fear in fact he gets a kick out of the fear and pain he inflicts
Reina is harder to pin down as a character because we don’t get much of her POV. The young girl we meet at the start gives off an innocent vibe but underneath she’s is just as much a seething mass of emotions as Soloman. Is she corrupted by him, I don’t think she is, for me they are two people intoxicated by power and they’ll use any means to get it.
This is a new for me author and now away to download some of the ones I’ve missed. Really looking forward to the next one.
