Okay, so the idea behind this is good and it's pretty entertaining for the most part.
But I feel like everything happened far too quickly in the beginning. There was almost no build-up and it was like Matt just decided that he was going to spill the truth to her out of the blue. The only hint we had that something was up was his obvious distaste for creeper Nate. I mean I'm guessing the glass that Nathan handed to Eve had some sort of drug or poison in it, thus the fire lit under Matt's butt. It still just kind of felt like, "whoa, what?"
And another thing that kind of bothered me a little was that her reaction didn't seem to fit the character that you set out... not entirely, anyway. She said herself that when she's faced with a problem, she doesn't confront it-she runs. I'd tack this up as a HUGE problem. She just found out that her entire life's basically been a lie. They dumped everything on her all at once and that's the kind of information that can make a person feel like the walls or closing in.
I just kind of feel like she accepted this way too easily, especially for someone with such a cynical outlook on life to begin with. The thing that saved you, though, from having her reaction not make any sense at all was that she's been established as a person who can't say no. I think that was your wild card, there.
Maybe if there was a little less dialogue going on to describe the characters' thoughts it would give a little more insight. There are few bits here and there that kind of dig into Eve's head, but it's mostly just conversation and that can detract from a story, especially when you have a plot as complex as this one.
I'm sorry this review is just one ball of constructive criticism, but I LOVE the idea behind this. I really do and I think there's such a boatload of potential in it. I'm just gonna keep reading and see what you have in store :D

Aww that was a sweet ending! I got really into this one and thought the first half of the story especially was great because the mystery gets you hooked. I thik that Matt and Eve had such a beautiful relationship, you really wrote it well. However i think that Eve should have been more shocked and upset when she found out initially about her brothers and matts mafia bussiness, as well as when her dad came back, as it didnt seem like there was much of a reaction, and i know that they were doing it for her sake, but being lied to your whole life would make you hurt. Also, when she found out that she could have married anyone, the focus of her anger was at Matt and Ricky for only doing it for money and honour, and rightly so but i would have thought she would also be angry at them, epecially ricky, for taking away her right to marry someone she loves and be happy, because they didnt know for sure that she would be with him.
Also, though i loved the plot at the end, i think what happend with Nathan didnt make sense because he was just as horrible as the rest of them and then he suddenly acted like he would do anything for her and then killed himself for killing his sister, so that he wouldnt have to go to jail, but surely in his line of businness hes killed before? I mean, it works if his character is meant to be quite unstable, but i dont think it came across that well, it wasnt quite built up properly and his motives werent clear.
Well that sounds like a lot of critism but i really enjoyed this, and cant wait to read more of yours!

So far all of your stories that i've read I really liked so it was no surprise that I liked this one too. I loved Matt he is so sweet. I kinda felt bad for Nate in the end. Took Ricky and Allison long enough.
