I'd like to know what happens between Clara and Luca but sadly there is no way I can read anymore and be in Clara's head. I've read other books by this author before and liked them. I'm just not a fan of this series.
Jaimie Roberts has released steamy mafia based romance.
Clara is a brothel owner, with parental issues, Luca is a mobster who possibly wants her business besides wanting her.
Clara runs her brothel but in a friendly way, she cares for her girls, is there for her girls, looks out for her girls. So when Luca sends his goons to intimidate her she rebukes them. The next day Luca himself comes a calling. She sends her girls to safety. But is now a captive in her own home, an old Castle.
She is drawn to Luca, he is blatant in his wants for her. She tries to fight it but his pull is to much.
I love Jaimie Roberts books. But this one wasn't didn't score a home run with me. while the sexual tension and in suing sex is hot steamy and alpha/dominant. There are plot holes. She owns a brothel but has no security? She fell a little to fast and hard for her "captor". Luca is a total alpha but he is mobster with a heart of gold to her and her girls.
As a male, I need realism and that didn't ring through to me. That being said the story still flows the secondary characters are intriguing and developed and the antagonistic points and characters lend interest to the story.
I will definitely give book #2 a read.
I wasn't too sure about this reading this but after reading the blurb I was intrigued. I'm not really one for mafia-type books but I was sucked into this right from the start. I did have a bit of a problem with how domineering Luca was and, holy hell, that ending didn't help his situation at all. I didn't see that coming but in a way I kinda did. Well, not so much that exact thing but I felt something was about to happen.
I need book 2 like yesterday. I'm off to stalk Jaimie Roberts now to see when that will be releasing. Oh, and definitely grab this. It's funny, hot, and will have you either wanting to swoon over or choke this crap out of Luca.

Murderous thoughts. Those are what I had once Isabella walked through the door and revealed to me who she was. I needed an escape. An escape from my thoughts, an escape from the hurt, and an escape from ... him.
I was a broken woman, but I was never going to break my resolve. I grew up being a fighter because I had to. No man could ever bring me down... Not even Luca.
But, I had to admit, I never thought my heart would break as much as it did that day. Of course, I fled, but I was a fool to think he would ever let me go. He always told me I was his ... no matter what the cost. He was determined to keep me—regardless of the lengths he had to go to reach his goal. He was like a moth to my flame, a tattoo carved into my heart. I could never escape his pull.
I may have evaded him, but I knew it would just be a matter of time. Once he inevitably caught up with me, there would be no going back.
However, no matter what I had expected—or even imagined—absolutely nothing could have prepared either of us for what happened next...
You would have thought I'd've been forewarned of just how much an impact this second part of the Sicilian Mafia series would have when the first book ended with an epic cliffhanger, and yet I found myself more often than not having to pick up my jaw off of the floor from finding out one more secret or one more twist that I simply couldn't have predicted.Read more ›
I’ve been reading several books written by Jaimie Roberts so far. From “Deviant” to “A Step Two Close”, she surprised me every time.
But when I learned she wrote about the female keeper of a high class brothel and a hot alpha mobster, I was hesitant to read it. My problem was not the mobster as I love a good mobster story, it was a woman running a house of ill repute. We all have heard about Madame Claude and I imagined someone like her, exploiting other women and it did not sit well with me. When Jaimie offered the opportunity to read the book, I took it, despite my reservations and now, I’m glad I did as I want, no I NEED to know what’ll happen next and I NEED the second installment right now! I can’t believe I was so distracted I did not notice this was a series (with “Sicilian Mafia #1”, I should have known) as now I’m very, very, very frustrated because… huge cliffhanger ahead!
Now, enough rambling and more of the story:
Clara Murphy is coming from a very religious family. Her parents were churchgoing pillars of their community with her father being a vicar. She had a very tough upbringing as : “They tried bringing me up to their standards of living, but I could never be molded. From the time I was a little girl, I had possessed an independent streak, so it never worked.”
She fled her house quite young and helped with her wealthy Aunt Trudy, bought a castle and ran a prostitution business. Not any brothel though as all her girls are high-class women that her rich clientele is ready to pay a high price for the “privilege of their company”.
I must admit Clara was not my imaginary Madame Claude. I warmed to her for several reasons:
-she never forces her girls with a client.Read more ›
