Freedom and a meaningful life away from the violence of the Trassato Crime Family is all I ever wanted…

 
But what I want doesn’t matter now that I’m caught in a tug of war between two men in the dangerous world of organized crime.
 
Marcello Masciantonio is the man my father expects me to marry. He wants me because I’m the daughter of Dominick Trassato, New York’s most powerful crime boss. He says he’s my future, and I want to hate him, but I can’t deny the spark that burns between us. 
 
Salvatore D’Amico is perfect. He supports me. He understands me. He’s willing to betray my father and give up his family to have me. He doesn’t care about the power that comes with being part of my family. He wants me for me. 
 
My choice is simple, right? 
 
Wrong. 
 
Everyone has an agenda, including Salvatore and Marcello, and just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize I don’t know a damn thing. 
 
Truths are lies. Freedom is lonely. But worst of all…
 
My love triangle is actually a hate triangle.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
First time author for us and we are happy to sat that I enjoyed our first read by them.
 
Emilia was a character that you felt sorry for,as her life was not her own.The only outlet she had was her piano lessons and the rest of the time under lock and key.Her father a monster with countless enemies she always needs protection.You definitely felt her loneliness and sadness about her.She lost her mother and her father is a controlling monster.Emilia's only flicker of happiness is her friendship with one of her fathers men Sal.As Emilia's feelings grow deeper for Sal that little bit of happiness is about to be destroyed by a brokered marriage.Another way for her father to gain more wealth and power not the happiness of his daughter.
 
I really liked Sal in the beginning of the story.I loved how he was willing to risk his life to be with the one he loves. Omg what a disappointment this guy turned out to be.Then you have the mysterious Marcello who is lethal and dangerous and use to getting what he wants.I loved the letter writing between Emilia and himself as
he seemed to be courting what was already his.Another disappointment for me in another long line of deceit and betrayals.
 
I enjoyed the characters as they were easy to connect with.There were many surprises in the story that you never saw coming.I liked that everything you expected to happen was just the opposite.The story flowed easily and kept your interest as the characters were was like-able and some love-able.You had to love Emilia as she had an innocence about her .I loved that about her as she grew up in a world of violence and greed.
 
A cute romance story about love,romance,deceit,betrayals among one of the most power crime families.Looking forward to what happens next in Emilia's newest adventure.
 
A recommended read to all.
4 stars

Arc Review: It's Me Again, Baby (O'Connor Family #3) by Katie Reus
It's Me Again, Baby (O'Connor Family Series Book 3) - Katie Reus

*** 3.5 stars ***

Katie Reus is the queen of the second chances trope. She’s got that down to a science and this book only reinforced that thought for me.

Samantha and Maguire parted ways a while ago because of a misunderstanding but neither got over the other one. Now that they finally got a chance to talk things over they’re giving their relationship another chance.

The narrative of the story was fast-paced and so was the romance however it was still well told. Throw in the dynamics of one of my favorite fictional towns (not to mention some super hot sex scenes) and you have a nice, fun read. I didn’t like the ending much as I thought it was too rushed and expected but other than that it was an enjoyable read.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Hiding
Morning My Angel - Sue Brown

Josh talks almost every day with a man he calls "Charlie."  He loves the old Charlie's Angel TV show, and they talk about that as well as most everything.  He knows it is someone he works with.  Just higher up somewhere in the company.

 

Callum AKA "Charlie" has been attracted to Josh since basically the first time he saw him.  Everyone is either intimidated or afraid of him or his position.  He decided that talking to Josh every day was at least something he could do to get to know him.  Now, when they meet face to face, can he tell Josh the truth and still pave a way to a future?

 

This series is very interesting.  It has complex characters and a good solid story.  I wish it had been a little faster pace.  I liked the basics of this Angel Enterprises series so much I am eager to read the next installment.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Right away
Death and Destruction - Patricia Logan

Jarrett is sent to protect an ATF agent who has decided to testify against a really bad man.  He notices how capable and strong he is immediately.  He just really wishes he was not attracted to him.

 

Thayne knew he would have a target on his back.  He can take care of himself.  His boss has other ideas.  Jarrett is sent to protect him.  After a while he wants more.

 

I went into this story not really knowing what to expect.  This is a new author to me.  I found the book to be not only intriguing, but seriously hot.  These two characters are more than capable of taking care of themselves.  Now they must learn to care for each other.  I cannot wait to read more of the Death And Destruction series!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
