Nice positive message in the book too about fighting for what you want and being a strong person in your own life.
Docked one star only because my main gripe with mafia romances is that they mostly never give any insight into what a capo does for his job on a day to day basis. It's always just alluded to but my nose is pressed up against the glass here just wanting to catch a glimpse, just one little scene will do... sigh. Maybe Gio will give me some action in the next book. A girl can dream.
I wondered if I’d pushed him too far, and the thought that he was angry with me drove me crazy, and I’d tossed and turned the whole night, wondering whether I’d ruined everything.
Emerson Rossi has always lived a loving but sheltered life. But after a horrific crime against her family and the death of a cherished loved one, her world is brought crashing down and everything she once knew was all a lie. She finds out she is the niece of the DePalma Mafia Don, Anthony DePalma and now needs protection. Enter Angelo Moretti. He has always had a soft spot for Emerson despite her close familial ties with his boss (and unofficial father figure.) But what happens when lines get crossed and the enemy is closer than they knew? Will Emerson and Angelo be able to fight their way out?
I absolutely loved this book. I loved that it was about La Cosa Nostra and very family oriented but I just fell in love with Angelo for systematically doing anything he could think to bring Emerson back to the land of the living after her traumatic ordeal. More so, he wanted her pain and sadness to be transformed into bloodlust, a need for revenge and the catalyst she needed to finally be strong enough to stand up for herself, her wants and desires.
I was absolutely enthralled with this book. I love that Angelo brought out Emerson's sassy and defiant side. He pushed internal buttons in her she didn't know she had and brought out that inner tigress in her and the need to challenge him. Likewise, she was the only woman that could bring him to his knees. She became his exception and a pillar of strength for him when the man beyond the hardened Mafia Capo exterior needed support. GAHHH I love this book!! They were perfect for each other and that TWIST!!? OMG. #mindblown. I can't wait for more from this author in this series! 5 Amazing Stars! ~Ratula
I get so giddy when I get to read a true authentic mafia read, and this did not disappoint. There was no grazing over the danger and perilous situations. The author lays it out and presents it to the reader like a buffet. There is murder, loyalty, betrayal, vengeance and passion, everything you need for a good mafia story!
Angelo is an intense, exasperating, self assured, suit wearing, sexy bad man. He is loyal to a fault and would take a life or risk his for those he considered family. Emerson is a casualty of a blood war between rivaling families. Something so important to her is ripped away and has shattered her very being. Angelo gives her the opportunity to turn that pain into something significant.
“Do you know the best part about being broken, Emerson?”
“You get to put yourself back together in any way that you like. You can find the pieces, create something new, something beautiful, something you never imagined possible before.”
The gravitation and attraction between Angelo and Emerson is tantalizing and sizzling! Their rapport and connection sharpens the story into the remarkable read that it is.
Addison Jane is a new to me author, but I will be following this author closely and will be reading more of her work!
