Prince of Blood and Steele by AJ Elmore and Nazarea Andrews Blog tour

Seth Morgan has returned home after two years spent building an alliance that will take his family's crime syndicate to a new level in New York City's black collar society. He expects a warm welcome as heir of the Morgan empire. He hopes to finally marry Nicolette, the woman he's loved his whole life.
 What he finds is a different world, one where his family's legacy is in ruins. His big brother, Caleb, has changed into someone cold and bitter, plotting to overthrow their patriarch. And Nicolette, daughter of the criminal banking industry, has left the family entirely.
 When a vicious misunderstanding leaves Caleb dead, Seth is left reeling. Desperate for truth, Seth is forced to turn to his only remaining cousin, Emma, for support. As he tries to mend his relationship with Nicolette, he begins a search for answers that will take him from the dirty streets to the highest reaches of their illicit empire.
 Torn between the desire to protect those who mean the most to him, and a need to learn more about Caleb's death, he grows distant to protect them. As each secret surfaces, he realizes that the only way to restore his family is to take his place at its head, and fully embrace the brutal way they live.

How you ever read a book that was hard to put down? That is what happened with this book. I didn't know too much going in all I knew was that it was about a mob family, and that was enough for me. Plus did you see the cover? Holy hotness Batman! 

This story is thrilling and exciting, it had me on the edge of my seat. Seth is sent away after his father's death. He returns home 2 yrs later and lets just say its not at all what he expected. His family's empire is falling apart and the love of his life is no longer apart of the family. His brother Caleb is not the same guy he was prior to Seth leaving. All of this and then his brother ends up sleeping with the fishes or you know he dies. Seth doesn't know who he can trust any longer. The only person he can turn to is his cousin Emma. I really enjoyed Emma. She doesn't seem like the type to be bad ass but the further I read the more I liked her.

This book has intrigue, drama and suspense but the only downfall that I had was that its too detailed. At first I had a hard time getting into the book. It took me a while to get used to the writing but once I got to a certain point, I was in like sin.
