This book may have triggers of the murderous and torture kind. I mean, it's mafia.
I'm so glad I stumbled upon this book. If you're a lover of mafia, pick this book up.
This book is in both Cecilia and Antony's POV.
We have Antony, he's trying to get the "button," he wants to be a made man. There's a problem though. His grandfather that's a made man, he won't nominate Antony (he wants him to earn it, himself). The other problem, his father. He's a drink. He's unreliable. So of course, they look at that and put it on Antony.
But thank his lucky stars, his best friend of the trio, Jonathan is a made man. He's willing to do as much as he can.
He is alpha, independent (as much as the mafia allows), and just swoon worthy. He sets his goals higher and higher with each thing he accomplishes. They go even higher once he meets Cecilia.
Cecelia, she's the daughter of "The Don" in Antony's "family."
She's fun, strong, feisty and she's not afraid to voice her wants and needs. It's like she completely makes Antony whole. They both do to each other. If these were a real life couple, they'd make the world jealous.
I really liked this book due to the simple fact, it's as true to the mafia as can be. I watch mafia shows all the time and at close attention to them, they're like an obsession to me.
We go through a button ceremony. An actual string of rules for "their families." What and who each actual person is and their job. It's not a book that just claims mafia, then had no actions, traits, or authenticity to it.
I loved these characters and the side characters, they made everything click and want to see what happens next.
This book is the introduction. You could stop at the end of this book if you wanted. But I can't. I need more and I want the next story.
I read this book through KU as I do with all new to me authors. This is my first time reading this author, it certainly won't be the last.
The beginning of Antony's story is more informative than anything, it introduces the reader to the main people in his life and what he had to do to become head of the Marcello Crime Family. But the book really picks up when Antony meets his match, a quite beauty that makes his heart jump. Once Cecelia was introduced, the book took a whole different turn. We saw that Antony would do just about anything for this woman but when "La Familia" calls, sometimes the ones we love will have to get put on the back burner.
Antony's story spans a few decades and follows the "Filthy" Italian through his wedding, taking over the family business and the birth of his children. It also explains some of the questionable situations that happen in the future books, such as Cecelia only gives birth to 2 sons but Antony has 3 boys....(read the book and find out what happens).
I found myself smiling throughout this book and give mad props to Cecelia because she was written as a strong woman who could put up with just about anything.
Great book and I am so glad Antony got his story! Even if it was a novella!
(Luciano) and that Vinne had killed his mother (Lina) as well. Antony decided to look for John son(Luciano) ad raise him. This was such a great book I loved seeing Antony when he was young & how he met & fell in love with Cecelia.. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes: Mafia stories, hot alpha-male or a good story. This is the story for you.
