 My Review
Five Stars

"He’s going to ruin every good thing in my life, and I’m going to let him.” 

I know I said it in my last review for book 4, but holy shit these books are seriously EVERYTHING. I have to be honest, I 100% pressured a friend to give me bits and pieces of this story because this series is killing me, and once I got some spoilers I was worried I wouldn’t love where the story was headed. I am soooo happy I read Resisting Mateo . It was nothing like I was expecting. It was everything. Mateo has definitely redeemed himself for me, which to some, I might sound crazy since in this book he went above and beyond at the whole ruthless mob god thing. But my oh my did it work for me.

I have to say, I feel like I haven’t gotten enough of Mateo in these books. I don’t think I ever will get enough of him. Like sure he’s in all of the books, and book two is his book too, but I don’t know, I feel like this was the first book where I got to really see him. I saw his anger. I saw his love. I saw him. And I loved his character for that. Don’t get me wrong, he is the biggest, meanest, sexiest, asshole ever, but this book sheds insight to his emotions, which we -the reader- hardly get to witness. I needed to feel it, and boy oh boy did I fucking feel.

I seriously love Mia. I think she’s real. I can’t lie, I feel like some times she is a bit of a pushover when it comes to Mateo, but putting it in retrospect she really does just love him unconditionally. I understand that. My heart broke for Mia because I felt everything she was feeling. I’m not mentioning Meg on purpose. Dare I say I’m finally on team Mia?

I’m kind of at a loss for words -funny since this is one of my longer reviews- but really. I haven’t been obsessed with a book -scratch that- series, in a long freaking time. And it’s not just the characters that I’m addicted to, it’s Sam’s writing. Like for real, I think Sam might be my new favorite author. The way she tells a story is unlike any other. Her writing is everything and so much more. Seriously, if you haven’t read this series already, what the hell are you waiting for? No really, what are you waiting for? Go read it!!
