5 out of 5 stars
Sarah Castille is a new favorite author of mine and Luca is the perfect example as to why. This book was everything. And I really mean EVERYTHING. The characters were all intriguing, the setting was fun, the plot had me on the edge of my seat, and the romance was off the charts hot. I really could not get enough of this book especially Luca. While Gaby was a good heroine, Luca was really the highlight for me. Mostly because throughout the majority of the book I wasn't sure whether to love him or hate him and overall he just made me feel a whirlwind of emotions and that is what really made this book for me. And then, of course, his romance with Gaby was fantastic. I really loved the back and forth between the two throughout the entire book. I also loved how their love story was both intense and really sweet. As for the plot focused on Gaby wanting revenge for her husband's murder, I really loved all the twist and turns that happened throughout her investigation and I really loved the big reveal at the end and how everything was resolved. It was all very satisfying. Overall, I have so much love for this book and highly recommend it.
