He's not like other men; he takes what he wants and he wants her.

No one dares to cross him until a hit is put out on his newest obsession.

What they don't know is just how crazy he really is when it comes to her.

  He'll do anything- even go to war.

 3/5 Stars
I was really, really hoping that I would love this book more than I did.  The cover is phenomenal and the synopsis is intriguing.  I had to read this book once I found out it was about gangsters/mafia.   There were parts of this book that I loved, and then there were the parts that I didn't love.  Basically, I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either.  

I was immediately drawn into the story.  I fell in love with Grace and Thaddeus from the very beginning.  I really like how dark and twisty this book is.  Well, I should say how dark and twisty Thaddeus is.  No wonder he got the name Joker. 

Grace is a strong willed woman who in the eyes of Thaddeus was completely pure.  She attracted his attention by not being afraid of him.  But, she should be very afraid.  Thaddeus was completely different around her than he was around everyone else.  She brought that out in him.  Grace made him smile when no one else ever could.  But, I didn't like how she turned her head at everything he did.  She knew who he was and what he could do.  What he has done.  She ignored it.  Acted like none of it happened.  I don't see someone like Grace doing that.

Thaddeus was an alpha male.  Mysterious, sexy, sinful and just flat out dangerous.  I loved the mysteriousness about him.  He would do things that I didn't expect and completely shock me.  But, I loved how much he adored Grace.  How protective he was over her.  But, he was a criminal.  And has done some very bad things.  How could he get sweet, innocent Grace to become his?  To live the way he lives?  The Joker would stop at nothing to make that happen. 

I was completely enthralled with this story from the very beginning.  But as the story progressed, it started to feel very rushed.  Everything started happening too quickly.  Grace didn't seem like the same person she was at the very beginning.  She didn't seem strong willed anymore, and I loved that about her.  I was also waiting for the big moment to happen at the end, and nothing huge happened.  I was left very disappointed with that.  There wasn't really a cliffhanger as well.  When the story ended, it felt like it stopped right in the middle of the story.  It just ended without that big moment.  Yes, there was a little shocker at the end, but it didn't feel as if the story should have stopped there.  I needed something more.

I really enjoyed reading Gangster. It is full of passion, action and drama.  This book really made me question my morals!!  That is what I loved about this story.  I really like Thaddeus and I was rooting for him and Grace, but he does awful things.  I could not put this book down once I started. The little shocker at end definitely left me wanting to see what happens next.  It took me completely by surprise. I will definitely be reading the next book to see where Sapphire Knight takes it.
