Add to Goodreads:
Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. He stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck. I thought he’d strangle me with it.
That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.
I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.
He’s come to make good on his promise.
He’s back to take that something precious.
Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.
Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.
I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.
And she is most definitely mine.
Collateral is the first book in Collateral Damage Series. This is Gabriela Marchese and Stefan Sabbioni’s story. Stefani first showed up at Gabriela’s 16th birthday party. He came to warn her and for her to warn her father that he was going to come back for something precious. She never showed her father whom she doesn’t like the neck chain that Stefan left with her.
Two years later after she turned 18 Stefan is back and he is blackmailing her father for her hand in marriage. She is his Collateral Damage.
Gabriela really doesn’t know who is the good guy. She knows her father isn’t but something happens and she doesn’t think Stefan is a good guy either. She thinks that he is to blame for the death of a friend of hers and she is ready to run.
I have some questions that I hope will be answered in the second and final book! The first book ends on a cliffhanger but fortunately the wait is short. The conclusion will be out on October 15th. This is a really good story and I can’t wait to read the last book!
