Once upon a time the daughter of a mafia king fell in love with a foot soldier.

Except there's a chance that he's still alive. And he's fighting a war.

Even knowing the risks, I have to find him. I have to find some way to protect him, the way he protected me. But he isn't the boy I left behind. He's a violent man. A criminal. And he's been waiting for me--the final pawn in a dark game of survival and love.

After reading, though love I don't know how could anyone handle not reading this story immediately. I was glad that Tough love was included in my arc in this book because it gave me a clear picture of what Clara and Honor were running from. Unfortunately Gio wasn't with him when they ran and what he went through as a consequence changed the boy, Clara knew to a hard and cold man.

The story begins with Clara preparing for an exhibit and that's where we meet her boyfriend Shane. I don't know why she was okay with letting Shen abuse her. She is so feisty about the abuse she goes through later. I just couldn't understand why she was letting the other man abuse her, especially after she run away from home because of the abuse. Later, when she has her freedom taken from her in order to protect her, she protests as she should have.

Go is a different man from the one Clara knew, but there still glimpses of the man he used to be, the man Clara fell in love with. He might be back in her world, but he is absent most of the time, which didn't allow me to meet and fall with the new Gio. If Clara didn't already love him I wouldn't be convinced that this is a love story. I would have liked to see what he has done since he took his position a little bit more. If maria gets a book I guess I will.

The story stayed with me thought for a while after I read it and that means I really liked the book. If the author pens write another book in the series, I will have to make sure to read it. The writing was great and the characters were as complex as they come. Hold You Against Me is a good mafia romance. It's not very dark, but I wouldn't call it light hearted either.
