Stefan's is dominating; Jordana is controlling submissive, together they carry out a secret relationship beneath the noses of their feuding crime families. But the charade cannot last forever. Trying to balance the conflicting requirements of love, family, and a criminal organization is not an easy thing for either of them. Eventually they must come to grips with their dilemma. And here we find the ruthlessness of the mafia is no match to the Power of a Woman.
Family dynamics, loyalty, honor and love fill the pages as the plot drives quickly forward. I found myself flipping ahead through the pages because I was so desperate to find out what happens. Being a New York Italian myself, I was amazed at how well the authors captured the City and put into play many Italian traditions. If you liked The Sopranos, you are going to love this book. It's really a great read and I'm so glad I have found these awesome new authors.
Wow, what a great sexy love story! These two authors first off, are fantastic and the storyline was terrific! The writing was impeccable, I was glued from start until finish, never ever bored with the storyline and/or the characters.
Now, why not a full 5 Stars then, well personally I HATED the part where Jordan STUPIDLY and not to my liking and/or reading tastes decides to make a bargain for her brother's life. Yeah, that whole part was a big FAT NO for me. I wouldn't have minded if she made the deal and then backed out BUT to have had her actually go through with it was not just a huge no for me but a slight turn-off for me. Sorry that's just me and honestly I wasn't sure if I could or wanted to continue on BUT I was also curious to see what would happen. Yeah, a gluten for punishment, lol, but I am so glad that I continued on.
Now Stefan......oh lordy, this man was PERFECT, he was the absolute epitome of perfection, if you looked up perfect in a dictionary Stefan would be there! Yeah, this man, was like a god...he was sexy, he was dominant, he was possessive and caring in an understated way at FIRST but then when his feelings of love finally came to surface, the words this man spoke, his actions....OMG, I am squirming and feeling giddy just thinking about him. HE was what made me continue on after that part of the book that I did NOT like and because of HIM, I never regretted a moment to continue to the end! There aren't enough words to accurately describe my feelings for him, he was THAT AMAZING in every way:) Jordana was one lucky bitch I tell ya, lol!!!! if only every story could have an H like Stefan, I would buy every book!!!!!!!!
Congrats to Leddy Harper and Gina Whitney on a truly fantastic, sexy read!!!!!!!!!!!! With the exception of that one part, this was a PERFECT read for me:)
Two young people, one from each of the two most powerful mafia families in New York, never destined to be together but what does desire know about being curtailed by convention and expectation.
In this case we had Jordana Albanese and Stefan Giannotti, treading a path towards a love that was strewn with pitfalls, lined with danger and destined to take them both to their very limits.
But family demands and expectations weigh heavy on them both but for Jordana she faces a decision that might just put paid to any happiness, and all in a bid to save her brother’s life.
Jordana is perfectly well aware that her brother has crossed the wrong man but little did she know that when she approached Zeke in an attempt to ensure that the revenge exacted wouldn’t be terminal, what exactly he would expect from her.
Now I get the whole Mafia being bad guys and not being able to be seen to be anything other than the crime lords that there are but I was taken aback by the fact that Zeke demanded Jordana for a week in return for expunging her brother’s debt.
Did he know what was going on between her and Stefan and was this more of a point scoring exercise between the ranks of the Giannotti family?
I loved the dynamic of the families, the connections and the deceit. I was blown away by the tenacity that Jordana exhibited, the determination that she wouldn’t be looked over merely due to the fact that she was a woman. This mafia daughter had bigger asperations but that also meant that she also had bigger obstacles to overcome and the more voracious opponents to defeat.
As Stefan and Jordana grow closer, can the inner sanctum of the families, the history of their pasts and the brutal truth of the world they live in allow what they have to flourish or are they destined to fall and fail at the hands of others.
Will the internal dynamics and family politics be their undoing?
This had more hidden in the tank than I had anticipated but neither author was willing to show their hand too soon and it made for a story that I simply devoured.
The writing was pitched perfectly, it was concise and elaborate but most of all it was colourful, it left nothing behind in pitch or tone and that approach meant that I was able to see the story in all its glory.
