Review: Prince of Hearts by L. A. Cotton

Review: Prince of Hearts by L. A. Cotton

Arianne Capizola is her father’s daughter.

Humble. Hardworking. Honest.

She’d rather spend her days helping at the local shelter than brushing shoulders with her vain and entitled classmates.

Niccolò Marchetti is his father’s son.

Dark. Dangerous. Deceitful.

He’d rather spend his days getting bloody in the ring than attending class and keeping up pretences.

When their paths cross at Montague University neither of them are willing to drop the walls they’ve spent so long building. But he can’t resist the girl with stars in her eyes, and she can’t forget the guy who saved her that night.

There’s only one catch.

Nicco isn’t Arianne’s knight-in-shining-armor, he’s the son of her father’s greatest enemy.

He is the enemy.

And their families are at war.

*Prince of Hearts in the first book in Nicco and Ari’s duet.  Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 18+

My Review:
Title: Prince of Hearts
Author: L.A. Cotton
Format: Ebook
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Dark Romance, Mafia
Standalone: Nope
Part of a Series: Book 1 of the Verona Legacy duet
POV: Arianne and Nicco
Steam Level: Dark elements but not too graphic, definitely innuendo and sexual elements and situations

Despite knowing that Prince of Hearts was a duet and would most likely end on a cliffhanger (it did but it wasn’t too terrible of a cliffhanger), the blurb and the premise sounded intriguing. I love mafia bad boys who will do anything to protect their girl. Adding in elements of warring families that goes back generations and not everything is as it seems. L.A. Cotton weaves together a suspenseful story that is a roller coaster and makes you ask how far you would go for love. I absolutely cannot wait tot the conclusion to this story and I’d love to see more of Verona’s characters fall fo love.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
