This was never what I wanted, but fame in the mafia was what I got. When you see numbers like I can, death becomes a constant threat. It lingers, waiting for you to make one wrong move. One falter. One fatal step out of line.

The endless presence will drain you, layering you with guilt and regret. Until one day, you’re covered in blood. And in that moment, you realize… you

3.5*

I'm not even sure how to review this, it's a mix of gritty real life and fantasy but stick with me and I'll try my best.

Firstly I have to say the cover is spot on, one look and you know this isn't the usual run of the mill Mafia romance. Not that there's anything wrong with that I'm a huge fan of Mafia romances in all their forms.

As the cover suggests this is a dark read and I wondered on several occasions if it was just too dark for me. The only thing that kept me reading a couple of times

description
In our tweaked-out love story, she was my princess. Shayla came with horror stories and no verbal filter. I was her suicidal knight, dressed in scars instead of armor.

I'm incredibly torn about this one. There were lots of things I loved, but ones that really grated on my nerves, too.

Let's start with the positives, though:
• The cover: the most obvious first... Just look at it, it's gorgeous and sexy and mysterious! Certainly part of the reason why I requested this book in the first place, since

“When a man harms Juliet, he coincidingly crosses Romeo too.”


Enjoyed this star-crossed lovers mafia romance. Hunter is mixed up with the Mexican mafia. He's indebted to them for certain reasons, and so he's been doing awful things for the past three years.

Shayla is just a pretty girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or so she thinks at first. Once her captors let her in on some secrets that could get her killed and then throw her into the mix with Hunter as her delivery boy to her new owner

Highly Recommended! 5 *****

Murphy delivered everything one would expect to see in a mafia story plus so much more! I was immediately drawn into Hunter's character and boy oh boy! did he have a serious ax to grind! Shayla's character was equally enthralling, and both were very well developed.The story grabbed my attention from the very first page and held it's momentum to the very end. If you like story's that are so well written that the action seems to pop off the pages, then this story is defi

I received this book to give an honest review.
So I really did enjoy the story and the way that Hunter could read numbers and crack codes was really awesome, never read a mafia story with that in.
We learn that Hunter has lost it all and joined the Mafia but it has not been easy the things he has seen and endured are enough to bring any man or woman to their knees. Yet Hunter isn't just a normal person he has learned to take the heartache and pain like a c

I have to say ‘Hell Will Rise’ is one of the best books I’ve read this year to date. I don’t say this casually. I’m not a big fan of this genre, in fact, I don’t particularly like Mafia and gangster romance tales at all, (mind you it wasn’t a sappy romance either, which is always a plus.) but after reading this book I may have to reevaluate my choice in genres. Having said this, I believe it also boils down to the author’s writing skill, which I’m happy to say, Skyla Murphy has in abundance. Her ...more

This is the first book I have read by Skyla Murphy and it won't by the last. I really loved this book. I am a fan of Mafia storylines and this one did not disappoint. I was delighted that this story has some twists and turns away from total blood and gore that some of the books have. I really enjoyed the relationship between Hunter and Tessa an then with Hunter and Shayla. I will have to admit there seems to be a cliffhanger and I for one HATE cliffhangers, but I will be watching for the next bo ...more

What a great book! I loved the story line. The author has a way of making the gory scenes less brutal than most. Hunter is one amazing character. I can't wait to read the next book!!!

DNF.
The whole mafia setting is really not my cup of tea, too rough around the edges for me. I also did not really care for the main two characters.

This is the first book I’ve read that had a Mafia theme and quite honestly I was intrigued to see how much my innocence to this theme would filter down into the book and impact my reading experience. It is safe to say I was pleasantly surprised with the story that unravelled, giving me a bit of everything (romance, violence and revenge) to keep me on my toes and turning each page with held breath!

Before you even begin the book you are told by the main protagonist ‘Hunter Garciez’ that you are re
