In the underworld when a leader falls, another leader is ready to rise. I’m that leader. This is my time to rule.
But stepping into my brother’s shoes, comes with a price, an inheritance of both gold and blood.
Are you ready for a war? No rules, no boundaries. Every man for himself.
“You take from me, I take from you. I’m heartless and abide to one rule and one rule only: protect La Famiglia.
Protect my own blood. The rest of you don’t count. My name is Ramirez, Ramirez De la Crux but they call me The Soulless Man.
Note to reader: Crux is a mafia, dark romance novel. Although it can be read as a standalone, it is highly recommended that you read Skins, Scars, and Filomena first, to fully understand characters, love stories, secrets and course of events.
If you enjoyed reading Skins and Scars, then Crux will blow you away. You could read Crux as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Skins and Scars first, it will make Crux much better.
Crux is the story of Ramirez De La Crux, it follows Ramirez as he steps into Alejandro’s shoes. Ramirez never wanted to be a leader, especially not of the ‘De La Crux’ empire. But now Alejandro is gone, Ramirez must step up and take the reins.
This book is an incredible rollercoaster ride of dark, twisted, and emotional events. The emotion and heartbreak that Ramirez experiences is palpable. Crux shows us how a dark, secretive soulless man can be the complete opposite; how he can be a scared boy, not knowing who he can trust.
Crux gives us the back story behind Ramirez and how he became ‘The Soulless Man’. It shows us the many sides to Ramirez. Crux is raw, gritty, dark, twisted and heart breaking. The twists, turns, secrets and emotion make Crux a powerfully compelling, addictive, and thrilling story.
Crux showcases author Laura Rossi’s talent for writing such dark and twisted stories. Laura has the balance of emotion and details exactly right. She ensnares her readers and pulls them so far into their world, that you will forget where reality is.
I’m gutted that I’ve come to the end of Crux, and I can only hope that there will be more from Ramirez De La Crux in the future.
✫.•° About The Author °•.✫
My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.
I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.
After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.
I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.
I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.
I’ve been really naughty! I read that book when it first came out and I’m only now writing my review and its July!!
This book was an incredible read, it dark, twisted, emotional and erotic. The Devil You Know pushes the boundaries of your imagination, it reveals all the hidden corners in your mind, the places where your dark desires hide.
This story has created a world and characters that suck you in and keep you there. It also leaves you wanting; no needing; more. I reached the end, but I still didn’t feel ready to leave these characters behind.
This book has been written extremely well. Claire’s characters are so full of emotion and personality, each character shows that they are multi-layered and displays the many different traits depending on the situation they face.
These characters have definitely worked their way under my skin and they will continue to have a place in my heart long after the story ends!

*This is a dark erotic paranormal romance and contains certain triggers some readers may not enjoy. Due to scenes of an adult nature, this book is for 18+ ONLY.*
The beginning of this book almost made me think I was reading something else, it’s not what I was expecting! It does make sense though just keep reading! It’s just another one of Claire’s unexpected plot twists, but it fits, it fits so well!
The Devil’s Plaything draws you straight back into the Intricate paranormal world created by Claire. I had no idea where this book would take me and these characters. The characters have continued to grow and evolve, they showed just how much as they continue to face what Claire throws at them.
Claire’s writing style flows almost effortlessly, she has an incredible talent for writing paranormal with some seriously mind-blowing twists and turns. This book has things that I could never have anticipated happening! Her characters continue to get under my skin and I even found myself liking some of the bad guys; I mean who could resist Lucifer??
I have loved this book; well 2 books; so much. These characters are amazing, Claire is so talented as a writer!
Even though this book is paranormal romance/erotica, I would highly recommend it to anyone, even if erotica isn’t your thing, you might be surprised by this series.
I’m still not sure I’m ready to say goodbye to the characters yet, Claire please write more Mavi and Lucifer.
