New series and Ms. Nelson does it again!
High Bar (Sin City Suits Book 1): A Billionaire Mafia Romance
by Ivy Nelson
I love a good Mafia story, so this one was a no-brainer. Throw in some BDSM elements (softcore or hardcore), and I’m sold. The set-up for the next books in this series was good, and I’m looking forward to delving into the rest of them.
This was a second-chance romance, so it was interesting to see how far both Matteo and Skylar had grown in the 5 years they were apart. The heart wants what it wants, that’s for sure.
That being said, I struggled with their relationship dynamic. Matteo is a Dom, clearly. But Skylar is not a sub. She did try to be what he needed her to be, to her credit. I don’t think he understood or even acknowledged that it’s not in her nature to submit. Given her background and current profession, it’s not something I would expect from her. If this was Ms. Nelson’s intention for Skylar’s character profile, mission accomplished! Because they ended up together in the end, I’m not entirely convinced they will stay together. This is only Book 1 of the Sin City Suits series, so I look forward to being proven wrong.
I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily.
