Superb. Really, everything I want in a book.
Interesting characters, check. (anti-hero does overshadow heroine here)
Compelling storyline, check. (Mafia aspect was just hinted at enough to really intrigue me)
Pearl clutching hotness, check. (Twisted the strand so much, it snapped.)
A few caveats:
24yr old virgin
Two usually very bothersome things but only slightly twittered at me. Guess I'm just really feeling the bad bad Leroy Brown comrades right now.
