Evidently it is a prequel to a series i have yet to read but as a stand alone it is top notch. Love, murder, mafia family, fast-paced, and hooked from page one- can i say more? Sure. But read it for yourself and you'll be begging for more....an awesome writer has chosen an awesome subject to delve into and characters that come alive on a printed page.
I gave it 4 stars because there is no 4.5 option...
The book kept me reading and turning each page to find out what happens next. Fast paced with action, suspense and romance. With secrets, lies, betrayals, murder and family feuds. A great author who kept me wanting for more between the two families. Can't wait to read the other books in this series that's sure to be as great as this book was.
Once again, Dana has drawn her reader into the world of the Mafia, this time, she transports her reader to the very beginning, when Enrico and Antonia meet and fall in love. In this much anticipated prequel, Dana does NOT let her reader down.
Watching how Toni and Rico go from basically being enemies to eventually falling in love, the reader understands more about Rico and why he does what he does in "Revenge" and "Retribution", at the same time, you also want them fall in each other's arms and ignore their families strife and just do what THEY think is best and stop playing around. The love scenes are as intense as the action scenes as they leave the reader on the edge of their seat and wanting more. Unlike in some novellas in this genre, the love scenes and action don't feel forced or out of place, they are natural and realistic.
With a delicate undercurrent of what happens in the following novels, I was compelled to read late into the night finishing, `Malavita'.
Dana grabs her reader's attention and doesn't let go until the very last page; and even then, she leaves you wanting to read `Revenge" (if you haven't already - shame shame shame on you... go READ it) and the follow up, "Retribution".
Once again, Dana has captured my heart and attention with her larger than life Mafioso characters and brings them to a whole new level and depth in her much anticipated prequel.
Her main characters, Rico and Toni, were well-developed, though their dialogue felt a bit stiff at times, and, to me, didn't ring true to their ages—they felt much older—but they were likable and I cheered their romance on. I will say, being that Rico was more or less trapped into an arranged marriage with Toni, and his first impression of her was not all that flattering, that it seemed a bit unrealistic that Rico would fall in love as quickly as he did, especially given his history and those he left behind in London, but he’s young, so I went with it. I just would've preferred it to develop a bit more over time. Toni had always had thing for the dashing Rico, so her infatuation was entirely believable.
Malavita is much more romance than suspense. The affair between Rico and Toni is set within the background of two warring Italian organized crime families. Personally, I would have loved to see this part of the story more up front rather than running in the background. It would have benefited from being more developed. I think the details of the feud were the one part of the plot I had a bit of an issue with. There just wasn't enough detail there for me to feel truly vested, and it was resolved way too easily and quickly, but, from what I understand, it all comes back in later books in the series. My hope is that the author further develops and explains all the history and bad blood lurking there.Read more ›

...not that there's anything wrong with that. A guilty pleasure. I actually thought author did a decent job showing how Rico's feelings changed for Toni.Published 6 months ago by JustAnotherTexan
