The dual POV between Olivia (aka Livi, Lulu and Lou) and Alessandro (aka Alex) was critical to moving the story along. As the main characters spent years apart from one another, having alternating chapters made it possible to understand where they were coming from when they finally did come together.
Alex and Olivia are thrown together in the most unfortunate of situations as kids. There truly was no reason for Alex to care about Olivia considering his recent misfortune and how she came to be a part of his life. It was his complete compassion for Olivia in her equally miserable situation that brought them together and placed him in a role of protector.
My heart broke for Olivia on more than one occasion. The way Alex’s father Silvio used Olivia as a way to control his son pulled Alex into the very life he wanted to leave behind. Olivia was his Achilles heel and Silvio exploited that fact at every turn. And the shocking ways Silvio was willing to use Olivia to keep Alex under his control were escalating.
While I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, I enjoyed this book so much that when I found myself some downtime to read on my phone (where the ARC was not downloaded to) I purchased a copy as I really wanted to know what happened next. This book did not disappoint and I look forward to the rest of the books in this series.
GK has put together a great base for her Chicago Angels novels in Covert.
The book lost two stars because of the ending. I was unaware that this was a serial book. Be warned, this book ends abruptly without any closure of any kind. If it weren't for the ending, I would have given it a good solid A+ review. It did start off slightly confusing and there were a few editing errors but all in all it was an enjoyable book.
Covert is about a Chicago mob family. Without going in depth about the various criminal activities this particular gangster family participates in, G.K. Moore still makes you feel the emotions of the various players, especially the two protagonists as they are pitted against the antagonist, Silvio.
Olivia and Alessandro had good chemistry and G.K. Moore did a great job of making me like the characters and pull for them to get together in the end. Alessandro made so many mistakes with his Lulu (Olivia) with his alpha male, "Do what I say without any explanation" nonsense but I was able to forgive him that because of his tendency to see her as a child in need of protection. I was even more apt to forgive Oliva for her occasional TSTL decisions because the author made it clear she had little to none in the role model department.
I also found myself choosing the next couple I wanted to read about. Unfortunately, this story isn't over. You simply turn the page to discover the words, "The End." and are left with a sense of betrayal and loss. If you don't mind paying for a book in installments, then I highly recommend this book. If, like me, you are diametrically opposed to books ending with no warning and less closure, then avoid this book until it comes out in a boxed set.
Alessandro is dying to escape the mafia world he was born into. When he receives a request of help, from one of the most unlikely sources, the daughter of his father's mistress, he drops everything to answer her plea.
Over the years, Alex and Olivia have had their own attraction, and there unplanned reunion brings this connection to the forefront. But there are interceding factors that make their love connection difficult. Moreover, as in any mafia romance, danger is never far away. Can there possibly be a HEA in store for this couple?
Revolving around the theme of are we doomed to repeat the sins of our father, this book will leave you dying to know how the story continues and if destiny can ever be outwitted. All in all, Covert is a great start to what promises to be a memorable mafia romance series!
