War of the Wicked (Lucifer's Landing, #1) by Davidson King



War of the Wicked is the start of a fantastic new series, Lucifer’s Landing. Sizzling chemistry, mafia romance, explosive action made this a fantastic read!

From the blurb:

Lucifer’s Landing is full of unscrupulous people: five families desperate to own every inch. For years, under the watchful and most powerful eye, there has been peace. With the murder of the most powerful man, it’s as if the gates of Hell have opened.

Dante Scavo is trying to fill his father’s shoes, find the person responsible for killing him, and stop Lucifer’s Landing from becoming a war zone. He has to focus, find out who the traitor among his ranks is, and end them. The last thing he needs is a distraction, but when he meets Rainn, one look, one touch, takes his breath away.

Rainn Blessings is no stranger to strong and powerful men. His life is about survival and getting to a place where he finds his peace, though sometimes that means being the fantasy of others. Working as a high-class escort he’s seen a lot…done a lot…and not much surprises him. Then Dante walks into The Magic Mirror and turns his world upside down.

With an unlikely ally, Rainn and Dante try to survive the storm, but no one is bulletproof or untouchable in the game of violent delights. Getting out unscathed is impossible; the question is: will they get out alive?

Janet's Review:

War of the Wicked is the start of a fantastic new series, Lucifer’s Landing. Dante’s father has died and now he’s the head of the crime family. But someone wants to take him out. He’s trying to keep Lucifer’s Landing from falling into a war zone. Rainn has survived much in his young life, but he’s going to college to better himself while working at The Magic Mirror. They meet and have an immediate attraction to one another. 

Sizzling chemistry, mafia romance, explosive action made this a fantastic read. Well written with addicting pacing that kept me engaged and reading long into the night. Highly recommend.
