A promising dark mafia book
First of all, I love Gustavo, we all love his (sort) of empathy for Juliet!

And I must say that Juliet is a rare female character that I haven't come across in Mafia books, she has a dark side to her that I hope to see evolve as has taken steps towards taking her life back. She is smart and I think is very compatible with Giovanni. But what I like the most about Juliet is that she surprised me by not running back straight into Damien/Christian's arms and being harsh but truthful with her words even if she has missed him. Damien is a conflicted character and the author has really done well by showing that and earning sympathy from us as readers and Jules, even though his reasonings can't change the fact that Juliet went through so much pain and hurt because of him. The writing style was also very fitting for the story, fast-paced, and painted the scenes well.
The only criticism I have is that the first three chapters had a lot of info dumping about the Mafia families and hierarchy/history that could have been spread out throughout the book, perhaps through the characters having conversations instead of Juliet's thoughts. On the other hand, the author did very well when it came to Juliet's family tragedy and mentioned pieces throughout these chapters, which was very intriguing.
I think the plot is good and stands out because Juliet has worked for the mafia in the worst way possible and now since she killed Sergio I'm wondering how it will end for her! And who she will end up with...
