You don’t know me.
 
But that’s only because I don’t want you to.
 
I have the most lucrative job in the country as a hacker in the notorious underworld. I’ve built entire systems and destroyed evidence for career advancement while stealing and exploiting data for personal gain. 
 
I’m the black hat hacker for the Chicago Syndicate and hold all the dirty secrets of the most powerful men in the U.S. in the palm of my hands, just a keystroke away from mass ruination.
 
However, no one knows my dirty secret, a decision from my past that’s just aching to blow up in my face and shatter my future. Especially when a certain wavy haired brunette begins to demand my attention with her odd ways and her carefree attitude.
 
She’s a woman who makes me go against everything I’ve ever believed.
 
A woman whom I’m forbidden from having my usual one-night stand with, even if she was available.
 
A woman whom I have to keep from getting herself killed, whether she likes it or not.
 
 
 

You don’t know me, but neither does she…yet. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I read many genres but favor intense, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely, without remorse or boundaries. I also adore forbidden love tales and have an odd fascination with kidnapping romances. No, I don't secretly want to be kidnapped, though!

I have a passionate obsession with the written word and indulge in chocolate pastries much too often. My debut novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1) was released on July 26, 2014. I’m honored that For Fallon won “Best Breakout Novel 2014” in the Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards.

Sales Blitz for Little Doll: The Complete Cartel Series by Melissa Jane
 
Title: Little Doll: The Complete Cartel Series
Author: Melissa Jane
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2017
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
One family rules them all. Hector and Juan Florez. A father and son, both dangerous and ruthless, who will stop at nothing and dispose of everyone to remain the kingpins of the cartel world. 
 
Unwillingly thrust into a land of rival cartels and underbelly empires, four complete strangers must battle their darkest demons and those chasing them if they want to survive.
 
For Laila, her unwitting mistake set the wheels in motion where good and evil would collide in the most vicious of ways. 
 
For Danny, losing the love of his life so violently would take him on a path of retribution and heartbreaking humility.
 
For Anna, she had always been a target, a lamb hunted by its prey.
 
For Sofia, she was simply beautiful collateral damage, the result of a tragic betrayal.
 
Each stranger has their own story, one so utterly devastating and empowering. When their stories cross paths allegiances are formed and war is waged. The Florez Cartel had conquered many battles, but this, they never saw coming. 
 
Payback is a deadly game.
 
 
 
 
One look and I became his. One look and I didn’t even think to run. Just one look, and Juan Florez had found his golden ticket. On the wrong side of town in a drug fueled heartland, I went in search of my younger brother, Ethan. What I would find was something belonging to nightmares. What I would lose would unknowingly become my fight for survival. An escape from the clutches of evil seemed almost an impossible task. Warring with Mexico’s leading cartel would only see me closer to my grave. Or worse, used as a bargaining chip to seal a sickening deal my brother had played a part in. But then there was one man who ruled over me. A man who promised to destroy my world at every turn. Juan Florez. Taking on the notorious cartel son was a battle I was bound to lose.
 
 
 
 
 
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

To hunt or to be hunted? When you escape Mexico’s leading cartel, expect retribution. When you escape from Juan Florez, a man who lives for the thrill of the chase, expect to run from the shadows that follow your every move. I was “his”. He craved and demanded my fear. He destroyed me in every way he enjoyed. It was power. Seduction. I could run. I could hide. But for how long? He had one objective and that was to reclaim his prize, even if it meant putting to rest the one man who stood in his way. Aiden. His brother. When yesterday I had nothing to lose and today I have everything to keep, can I trust the very man whose family of monsters is now chasing me?
 
 
 
 
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

Monsters…. They are real. They watch you from their safe place, taunting, knowing. They breathe down your neck and chase you in your dreams. You wake, but they are still there. Saving everyone was impossible. The destruction, heartbreaking. One man was to blame. Anna knew he was there. His eyes following her every move, his presence beckoning a fate she needed to escape. This was a war where good never stood a chance. Danny knew he was a target, trapped in a place that would bring him to his knees, survival holding no promises. How do you win a battle that was lost from the very beginning? Monsters… They will destroy you. 
 
 
 

●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

He smiles. Winks. Eyes glistening an evilness known to no other. And then… I lose everything. It takes a heartbeat. A silent promise. A guarantee that it’s all only just the beginning. Everyone has a story. Mine is one I don’t want to remember. Deceived by those closest to me, I was thrown deep into a world of violence, corruption and trafficking. The dark, sinister world belonging to one Hector Florez, Mexico’s leading cartel boss. What he wants is control. What I crave is freedom. They say everyone has an angel watching over them, protecting. Me? I had my very own demon.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lover of dark, fast-paced stories with a dash of romance, Melissa Jane’s books are a ruthless combination of dangerous cartel Kingpins and beautiful strong heroines. No one is safe within the pages she writes and the underdog is always favored to win… most times.  
When not writing, Melissa loves relaxing with her family and a good glass of wine.

Review: Wicked Mafia Prince by Annika Martin
Wicked Mafia Prince: A Dangerous Royals romance - Annika Martin

Now that Viktor and his brother Aleksio are reunited, they continue their seemingly impossible search for their youngest brother Kiro. Viktor's story actually starts somewhat in the first book, when he discovered that his one true love, Tanechka, survived the night he attempted to kill her for betraying their mafia family. Now she's posing as a nun, held captive in the dark world of human skin trade, and Viktor will do anything to get her back and earn her forgiveness.

 

Although Wicked Mafia Prince is a standalone romance, it is the second story of the Dragusha brothers and their attempts to find Kiro and overthrow Bloody Lazarus. The overall story takes a more urgent turn in the search for Kiro and standoff with Lazarus, yet those storylines aren’t completed by the end of the book.

 

While in the end, I found Viktor and Tanechka a perfect pair, I struggled a lot with their “romance.” Tanechka has amnesia and has lived the past two years as a novice nun. Viktor will not accept this and insists that the “old Tanechka” would hate what has happened. And he goes to extreme lengths to get her to remember. His actions made me very uncomfortable. Ms. Martin does an amazing job of writing Viktor. He's so passionate and so f'ed up. She's made him very real and believable. She keeps him in character. But with that said, I can't relate to him nor feel good about his actions towards Tanechka. While he may love her, he is looking to be punished for trying to kill her. He's so destructive and his actions are NOT love. They are abuse.  I understand his logic and it wholly fits Viktor's personality. However, that doesn't make his actions admirable or conscionable. He's still a monster and his love is obsessive. 

 

While this quote may be considered spoilerish, it honestly saved the whole book for me. Coming at about the 88% mark, Tanechka thinks "Maybe he [Jesus] wasn't showing me his beautiful eyes to get me to be a nun. Maybe he was just showing me love. Forgiveness. Showing me himself, so that I would know him. I can't be a nun, but maybe it's not too late."

 

I also have to mention that while I wasn't super excited about having a POV from Lazarus, his fixation with Valerie, the executive coach, was hilarious. Also, Lazarus is pretty smart. Not just the hired gun as we were lead to believe. I see that he will be getting his own book in 2017, which makes me wonder what will happen with the overall storyline.

 

In the end, Wicked Mafia Prince is a well-written, but tough read. Viktor is an anti-hero that I couldn’t support because his love wasn’t romance, it was abuse. But if you like dark heroes and gritty romance, this story is a must for you!

 

My Rating: C+

Nico (Ruin & Revenge, #1) by Sarah Castille Review
A dangerous proposal In Nico, the first book in the Ruin & Revenge series by New York Times bestselling author Sarah Castille, Las Vegas Mafia boss, Nico Toscani, is used to getting what he wants, whether it is having the City of Sin under his rule or a beautiful woman in his bed. But when he meets his match in the gorgeous, headstrong Mia Cordano, the daughter of a rival crime lord, all bets are off. . . Sexy computer hacker, Mia, struggles to break free of her ruthless father’s Mafia ties…but she can’t resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game. Will they surrender to the passion that burns between them—and risk tearing apart their families? Or will Nico be forced to betray the only woman who sets his blood on fire? Review The characters are well developed and the steam level is through the roof in this star-crossed Mafia love story. I really liked hacker Mia and mob guy Nico. And then I hated everyone else. It is a fasted placed plot with good writing, I think if you like mafia romance, you may like this one better than I did. It is compelling. It was just hard for me to believe in the HEA which is a must for me. I received this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.
