Born into the Italian Mafia and taught how to click the safety off a rifle before he could walk, assasination is a second nature. Surviving is his main priority and engaging in combat until his ears ring is a specialty. Arlo Cantelli has lived his whole life knowing there is only him and the world, nothing in between. Everything for him has been clear, he's never stuttered on a word, never hesitated to speak his mind and most definitely did not face any distractions. Everyone he knows, he keeps at a distance.
Miles away is someone who doesn't have to look over her shoulder every minute, doesn't fear for her life or knows how to throw a right hook correctly. It's been a simple nineteen years for Jax. Friends, an occasional party, and a pretty normal family. It's only until one night that Jax and her parents are abducted from their own home, does she come to know that everything was never as it seemed. What felt like a thousand gun shots and her own bloody screams later, did she find herself in a huge mansion with an ecstatic aunt she had never met before, a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach and eyes locked with a man with piercing green eyes and a bloody lip.
