A sexy ebook about two seventeen-year-olds—one a victim of human trafficking; the other the son of the man who enslaved her—who fall in love and question everything they ever believed…

Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco grew up under vastly different circumstances. Haven, a second-generation slave, was isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege and excess.

Now, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that began before either of them were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price—especially not freedom. But how much will they have to sacrifice? Can they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free?

Maya's Review

On the one hand the storyline was intriguing and gripping. Haven is a girl who is nobody, the daughter of a slave and now a slave. That's all she'd known her whole life until she is taken to live with the DeMarcos.

Carmine is a boy who has everything but is spiralling downwards in a reckless life filled with partying, drugs, women, etc. He doesn't care about anything even himself it seems, until Haven comes to live in their house. And then he falls in love with her and is bent on protecting her no matter the cost.

This story has a lot going for it, mafia, international crime, human trafficking, drugs but at the heart of it, it's about love and sacrifice.

On the other hand, there were sections of this book that dragged and I wished things would hurry along. Not every tiny little detail needed to be explained to the reader.

Still don't take my word for it, go and pick up a copy.
