Once A Crime Lord (Crime Lord, #3)

Once A Crime Lord (Crime Lord, #3)

Once A Crime Lord by Mia Knight

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Good series

I was disappointed to find that I had correctly guessed the villain in the first book, but still pleased with this series overall.
The relationship between Lyla and Gavin is so turbulent. So angsty. He just can’t stop messing up- it’s pathological. He makes some ground with her, and then before long he can’t help himself but to try and spoil it. And boy, he nearly did it in this book… more than once. That, coupled with the external threats, made for a fast-paced read.
I was horrified by the level of violence and gore in this book, but I suppose that shock value is necessary to relay the depravity of the world this author has created. There is no question that these main characters encounter true sociopaths in this book. Men who thrive on pain and loss of hope more than anything else. It’s terrifying that there probably are actual places out there like the one described in this book. Makes me want to hide in my house and hug my dog.
Anyway, another good entry for this series. I was thrilled by all of the new characters that were introduced in the second and third books, and can’t wait to read Carmen’s story next!

It all ends here. 

It’s been two years since the Pyre family was ripped apart by a sadistic killer who will stop at nothing to take Gavin Pyre’s position as crime lord of the Las Vegas underworld. 

Lyla and Gavin’s relationship will be put to the ultimate test when her ex rolls into town and the killer decides to finish what he started by making his final play… 

This is a dark romance novel with triggers, violence, and mature themes that may make some readers uncomfortable

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
