Nero begins when Elle ends up witnessing something she shouldn't have, something that could get her killed. Little does she know that the person who keeps trying to be around her could be the person who is a danger to her. Nero has always known that he was going to be part of the "family" and that the job came first then everything else. But his whole world turns upside down when he meets Elle, a girl who shouldn't have done anything for him at all, but also the girl he ends up falling for. Now the problem is trying to get her trust, and keep her safe.
Nero is a very good story with lots of drama, romance, and even though it is set in a high school setting it really doesn't resemble much about high school except for a few things. The characters all act much older than what they are, and a lot of the things that happen don't seem at all young adult. I really liked this story, and it kept me interested all the way till the ending. I did however think the mistake Elle made towards the end was sort of dumb on her part since she had been mostly smart about everything else. Then at times I wanted to hate Nero and his family, but for some reason I couldn't. Now I'm actually looking forward to the next book, and hopefully getting to see more of Nero and Elle.
