In Retribution is a MM Mafia Romance. Brady and Charles have both suffered a terrible past. From the first night they meet sparks fly but can they escape their trauma and have a life together.
Where do I start with this one? I will start by saying I feel awfully conflicted about In Retribution.
Did I enjoy reading this? Yes!
Unfortunately though there was several things things that didn't work for me as a reader, the constant use of the Nickname (Red God) just made it a tedious read for me, one or twice sure! But it was in every other sentence Charlie had.
Secondly, I felt there wasn't a lot of Character development. I wish the Author had given us a bit more of a connection to the characters, yes we hear about Charlie's background but I really think a little past/present time hop would have worked wonderfully.
Although there were very dark subject matters in In Retribution I feel like it was a very fluffy read, I wish there would have been more action/ dark feel to the book but that is just personal preference, i like dark Mafia Romances. This would be perfect for somebody who wants mafia romance that's quirky and light read but still has some darkness to it. This book deals with triggering subject matters/most appear off page, the two main characters discuss their past trauma.
Overall I did enjoy this read and like I said I think it's more personal preference that it didn't quite work for me. I would still recommend it. I absolutely loved Charlie and Brady as a couple. I think a bit more story pacing and character development was needed that's all.
