Before I go any further, I'd recommend reading book 1, Dark Protector, before getting to this one, as you will get a better understanding of how Sabrina became Nate's ward and why she was so scared of Conrad. But it can definitely be read as a standalone. I ended up getting book 1 after reading Nate just because I loved Nate so much.
We follow the story of Nate, Mafia boss, and Sabrina, his ward. Five years before, Sabrina's adoptive parents got killed and Nate saved her from their killers. She was thirteen at the time to Nate's twenty-eight, and Nate took her under his wing, sent her to school and made sure she was well provided for in general. Now it's five years later, Sabrina is getting ready to go to college, but she also has made it her life's mission to seduce Nate and make him hers now that she turned eighteen.
All sorts of drama came their way once Sabrina moved in with Nate. It was an adventure following Nate's business dealings, as well as finding out who the traitor was. I had not seen it coming, and I ended that part of the story with the same wow that I started it with. The epilogue was cute and left me wanting for more. I really hope there will be books on the other guys in this story. I will definitely follow this author to find out.
Celia, Celia, Celia. You did it again. Blew my mind with lust, passion, blood, and gore.
Nate Franco is the boss. He is hard and not afraid to kill if he has to. But he has one weak spot, and that spot is Sabrina. The little girl he saved five years ago and who he has made sure was safe growing up. But Sabrina has grown up to be a beautiful woman, and he is spellbound by her when she suddenly shows up in his house.
Sabrina has been away on boarding school for five years. But now she has been accepted into college, and she has turned eighteen, and she is ready to blow Nate's mind. She hasn't thought of any other man for five years, and she wants him, badly.
The only problem is that Nate thinks she doesn't fit into the rough and raw lifestyle he is living, but she will show him that she is perfect for him and his way of life.
Celia writes a brilliant story. The way she plays with the words turns me on like nothing else. I always think of the word wordgasm, when I read a Celia Aaron book, and she didn't disappoint this time either.
She molds the characters into desirable persons, and I absolutely adore both Sabrina and Nate.
Sabrina is a sassy young woman, who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to claim it. She is strong without losing her feminity, and she is a fresh breath of air.
Nate was hot, with his firm hands and dirty mouth. He feels the responsibility heavy on his shoulders, but we still see glimpses of funny light Nate.
The sex scenes were passionate and lustful. I can never get enough when Celia puts her dirty thoughts on paper. She does it to perfection.
Nate is, despite the raw and violent mafia world, it's set in, a fairly light story. I'm so in love with the way Celia Aaron can make a raw and violent story into a joyride. The playfulness between the characters mixed with the seriousness of the mob world makes this feel like real entertainment for me.
Thanks to the author for this hot and tantalizing advanced copy.
Here goes .......
I absolutely LOVED NATE!!! The book and the man ;)
He is sexy and oh so alpha. Everything about him grabs your attention and keeps it until you read "The End".
The story starts as an introduction into the world of a big bad mafia boss, Nate Franco. Immediately you learn that he is not to be messed with and what he says goes, because that's how it works and what boss isn't right? Everything in his life was going as planned, that is until he ran into an unexpected house guest. The last time he saw this girl, she was thirteen and he was rescuing her from her life. Now she's all grown up and he has no frickin idea what to do about it.
Sabrina has been in love with Nate since she was thirteen years young, and now that she's eighteen she's going to act on those feelings. There's only one problem, Nate is not having it! She of course pushes his buttons, because duh, who wouldn't? She refuses to let this go because she knows what she wants, and nothing or nobody will get in the way. Not even Nate himself. He's chucking it up to a teenage infatuation, but Sabrina knows better and so does Nate.
So, before I get into it, I don't know if you've seen the whole showdown about men in books being with barely legal girls. It was all over social media, Facebook and Twitter mainly, and personally I'm not sure what the big deal is? Eighteen is legally an adult no? I mean, am I missing something? And in these books, it's not like the girls are being taken advantage of, they are willing participants and capable of making their own decisions. The big deal was made by lonely cat ladies who probably never get laid, but that's just my opinion and me being a bish.
Anyway, I said that to say this, even with all that hoopla I love that Celia Aaron gave social media a big middle finger and put out this amazing story.
Nate and Sabrina shared a history together and to finally see their love develop and blossom was beautiful. I loved seeing Nate's debate with himself about pursuing a relationship with Sabrina. I'm happy he gave in though because fighting it wouldn't have panned out all that well for him. Their story was not only beautiful, but also very sexy. And lets not get started on the sex. My gosh, I was trying to read and not sweat all over my kindle from being so hot and bothered. Fanning myself wasn't working after while, so I just sat under the AC vent.
I also really loved the stories excitement. The action that came about left my heart beating and my pulse racing, I couldn't get enough. The person who turned out to be the rat was definitely someone I didn't see coming. I for sure thought it was one of his closest, but I see I was wrong. I'm happy I was wrong too, because I'm not sure how I would've handled that betrayal.
Overall, NATE was an amazing read. If you are looking for a story to keep and hold your attention from beginning to end, this is definitely your story. I'm not even surprised by this book being awesome, Celia has never let me down.
So do yourself a favor and invest your time and money, you will not be sorry. Don't believe me? One-click right now and prove me wrong then.

He is a hot badass mafia boss and determined to 'clean up' their operation and stay away from trafficking women and hard drugs. He is sidetracked in his endeavours when 18 year old Sabrina shows up at his home. Nate had become her guardian 5 years earlier and had sent her away to school and is knocked off his game when he sees that she has blossomed into a sexy young woman.
There is plenty of sexual chemistry - which Sabrina is keen to take further, whilst Nate is desperate to ignore. Of course he only manages that for so long and then the sparks fly! The sex is undeniably hot but I was just a little unsettled by the age gap and how the virginal Sabrina was so sexually confident! Also their background relationship was a tad unsettling to me to overlook.
There was tension with Nate having a 'rat' in his camp who was working to destroy his empire, but the conclusion was a little bit of an anti-climax as I had already worked out who it was.
Nevertheless I would recommend this book for some mafia boss action and with a good dollop of hot sex!!
Nate rescued Sabrina when she was a child and sent her away to the best boarding school for her protection.
Now years later the girl who left is back but she's not small and innocent anymore. She's feisty, beautiful and very tempting.
A dangerous combination for Nate because he's not a good guy. He only has so much willpower and this girl is testing it.
When he wants something nothing stops him from taking it.
I really enjoyed this story. I already love Nate from meeting him in Dark Protector. He's everything that should scare you away but it only adds to the attraction.
This Author is an instant one click for me her books never let me down.
It's supposed to be a mafia book, but is more about an older man's relationship with his 18 year old ward.
Plot is ridiculous and just so-so.
Characters are just ok.
Better out there in this genre is the bottom line.
