Heather's 4 Star Review 

Reckoning is a delicious, angst filled, mafia romance.  Jessica Ruben’s follow up to her debut is thrilling and I’ll be adding her to my TBR pile every time she releases. ~ Heather, White Hot Reads 

I'm a huge fan of mafia romances and so I was super stoked when a fellow blogger recommended this series to me.  When I venture out to read a new author I'm both extremely giddy to see what they have for me, and also nervous because well - they are new.   

I'm glad that I took a chance on Jessica Ruben and Vincent & Eve.  Reckoning is the second book in the series and although I didn't love it as much as the first, I still really enjoyed it.  There are so many great things about this book - exploring NYC and Columbia, and the characters - they are so much fun!  

I am super excited to see what happens next because you know --- cliffhanger!  :) 



Vincent: Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it's a risk I'm willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve: Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He's king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger

and I’m not sure I’ll survive.
