When I purchased "High Stakes" the author's note only included; "This is a standalone dark romance novel with no cliffhangers, it contains themes of violence and mature situations that could make readers uncomfortable." It had not yet included; "Part two coming out soon!" Imagine my surprise when I got to the end of the book and read, "Part 2 High Stakes COMING OUT SOON!"
While I enjoyed the story, I feel like I was duped with a bait and switch. Had I known that this will be a book issued in parts, I would've waited to read it until after all parts were written and released. I do not, I repeat, I do not like reading installments. How many parts to this story will there be? I followed the link on the author page, but I was going to have to sign up for her newsletter. Not something that I was interested in doing. Next, I found the author on FB. Nothing there either indicating how many parts to this storyline there will be.
Jackie takes the girls one night to an underground, illegal card game.. Once inside Adriana watches the events take place and there is one dealer missing so she is asked to step in.. Not knowing what or who this place belongs to she agrees. She is immediately drawn to Vincent Cesare, her boss... He keeps watching her as well and trying to keep his distance. This is just the beginning of a new life for Adriana and soon she finds herself swept into a life of mafia business dealings, and involvement with the 'capa' of the mafia family.. Vincent. The two begin a passionate love affair with hot steamy sex scenes, and Vincent falls hard for Adriana unlike anyone before... He protects her with his life... Unfortunately for them, this is all going on during a mafia war between to families and there is violence and blood shed.. This is full of action, drama, secrets, suspense, it definitely keeps you guessing at every turn of the page.. I was so into this book I had to continue with the next in the series...
Style: Mob Romance
Intimacy level: Sex-citingly GOOD
Series: (Vittorio Crime Family book#1)
I love mob romances, I don't think they're enough of them. I do admit I underestimate this book. I thought it would be simple and maybe boring, but I was surprised at how much I liked this story. Vince was sexy to me and his bada$$ attitude was an added bonus. The way he was with Adrianna was cute hard on the outside and a softy on the inside. Adrianna was naive a bit I thought, but she managed the relationship with Vince. Honestly their sexual chemistry was bit of a surprise, it was Ok for me but a few might find it too hard or disturbing, FYI.
Not a fan of continuation. I love this story, but don't think I want to read a follow up continuation on Vince and Adrianna. I have no doubt that it will be good but I am getting fed up of the same characters being forever continue in 2,3 even 4 part books. I was not a fan of Adrianna's mother or her reliving of her father's death although it is a very pivotal part of the storyline. The story, isn't very dark but dark enough-ish for a mob romance.
A good read, would recommend if you are a fan of mob/mafia romance, just not a fan of a continuation.although, I have to admit, the story doesn't need on
