I liked the dark tone of the front of the book. The settings and characters were excellent there and fit perfectly with the mafia vibe. Similar to "Always Oskar" this is a very low-angst and super light mafia book. Once you get past 20%(?), I felt like it was all fluff and no dark (except for one scene where Jasper had to prove himself). Once Abaddon started showing his nice-guy image, the mood of the entire book switched.
Loved Abaddon's relationship/friendship with Gabriel. You could tell they were very ride-or-die type of friends, and that part where Gabriel admitted and revealed that Abaddon was family to him was touching.
The reveal and talk about Abaddon's twin actually had me tear up. It was so sad and I felt his loss when he reminisced about Asmodeus with Jasper and Theodore. Ughhhh wish he was still around.
There wasn't as much spice in the book as I would've wanted but it's also a short book so it's a quick story. The library public sex scene was hot and we definitely need more of it. Loved loved loved it!
Overall, I think it was a very cute mafia book, but might have been better if it kept a darker tone (personal preference).
