How can things you only glimpse for a moment sear themselves into your memory?
~Alessandra, Mobster’s Bones

 

Alessandra has a problem. It's not that the Mafia is the only life she knows, her father and best friend being members.
She's being followed. Her stalker destroys the one thing Alessandra thought they could never touch. She's now forced to flee the only home she's known, Palmetto.

 

How can someone be so beautiful? The morning sunlight is coming through the blinds on my window casting a glow around Alessandra. She has been here for a week, and we have fallen into a routine. It is sort of like she has always been here. Imagining her leaving, gives me an unwanted stone in my stomach.
~ Troy, Mobster’s Bones

 

Troy has his life planned out perfectly; graduate from Notre Dame with honors, get married, live a quiet life with his wife and kids in the suburbs. Just like his parents and their parents before them.
Things don’t work out according to plan - the scaffolding of his life is crumbling before his eyes. Troy’s plans didn’t include the daughter of a mob enforcer showing up at his door and sleeping in his bed. Are Alessandra and her mafia family worth throwing away the life Troy has always wanted?

 

 

 

excerpt

 

 

 

Alessandra

 

My heels click too loudly on the cement sidewalk. I’m moving fast. My fist tightens around the strap on my bag, and I pick up my already hurried pace. I shoot a quick look behind me. No one is there, but I know they are, watching me. My shoulders tighten like someone threw an ice cube down the back of my shirt. The Saturday night special in my purse should comfort me but it doesn’t; I can’t fire at shadows. I’m too nervous to even pull out my phone.

 

I know better than to be out on the streets at night even in a town where my dad is a Capo. I have never been afraid. I really haven’t had a reason to be. Best friends with the mob boss’s son, Antonio, my father a bad-ass enforcer for the Delisi family make it a no-brainer. Stay the fuck away from me.

 

Street and porch lights on symmetrical houses flit by, illuminating the cracked pavement then casting it into darkness. I’m two houses away and the pavement stretches before me like miles of empty wilderness. My breathing is labored. Echoing in my ears are abrupt huffs of air in tandem with rushing blood.

 

My house!

 

I run up the stairs and unlock the front door, throwing myself into the living room. I slam it behind me and click the lock. I turn, leaning up against it, exhausted. I kick off my shoes and slide down to the floor.

 

Why is this happening to me? This is destroying me. A tear pricks the corner of my eye. It is shredding me to pieces one eerie bit at a time. I realize paranoia is consuming me as I pull my legs up tight to my chest. I wrap my arms around them and bury my head. I have to tell someone. I will look weak, but I have to. I can’t take this anymore.

Mobsters and Miracles
Mobsters and Miracles - Lavinia Lewis 2, 2.5...I don't know. I seem to be in the minority here as everyone else seemed to 4 or 5 star it, so IDK.
I had a problem getting invested almost immediately because something about Lucas's inner dialogue was off. Not genuine or something...just off
I love cops, I love partners, I love friends to lovers, but this just didn't really...get me there. I missed the buildup of the relationship. It seemed like it was going...and then it skipped all the good stuff and skipped...well, skipped to good stuff but I had an issue with that, too. I don't want to spoil it so that's just the issues I had.
I also had hoped the whole crime aspect was going to play out in a differently as well. Such an interesting start, could have played out so many different ways, but it just boiled down to someone sitting there telling them the whole thing.
I don't know, tons of potential, it just didn't work for me. I would read from this author again.

Masks & Mobsters Volume 1 Hc
Masks & Mobsters Volume 1 Hc - Joshua Williamson,Mike Henderson When Mob enforcer Bobby Silver killed masked hero Doctor Daylight in cold blood, it sent shock waves through the Masked community. Now, in the eyes of the heroes, the mob is their #1 enemy – and it’s war!

I wanted to write my own intro but I had a hard time coming up with a summary better than the one provided by the publisher.

It’s not often that I go to the library and check out something that has been both completely off my radar and without a single written review on Goodreads. My girlfriend found Masks & Mobsters nestled in the stacks and handed it over to me thinking it looked like it was right up my alley. How could I argue? It has superheroes and mobsters? It’s set in the mid 1900s? Sold.

I like the idea of putting the focus on the mob as they struggle against the peacekeeping superheroes rather than the other way around. The artwork is slick and the splatter style black on white treatment of blood is used effectively. There’s one chapter in particular near the end that opens up the storytelling in a creative way by showcasing the important dialogue and action in the background while an unconnected story plays out in the foreground. I’d like to see the creators take similar chances going forward.

It’s not perfect but the series has promise. Keeping with the majority of comics, single issues are released first and later collected into trades but with Masks & Mobsters, it’s strictly digital distribution through Comixology first and physical releases later.

Bone Rider - J. Fally

I'm absolutely flailing with the awesomeness of this story. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. 

I saw the cover and title and without reading the blurb figured it for a western of some kind. This is thriller sci-fi all the way that's riddled with an intense manhunt from start to finish. 

It has jumping POV's: aliens, military, mobsters, cowboys but it never once seems a gratuitous literary gimmick. It works. It works so well. I loved being in everyone's head and it made this story rich and layered. It never once felt jumpy or disjointed. 

System Six/McClane is an alien military armour and weapons AI. He heartily dislikes his host and refuses to fully bond with him. In searching for a way to save himself from destruction he screws with the navigation system of the ship. That throws it far of course and accidentally causes it to crash land in the Texas desert almost on top of a US Military exercise. 

One firefight later we have a desperate alien looking for a ride out of the mess it's made. Hello Riley Cooper, cowboy extraordinaire, a man on the run from his Russian mobster boyfriend and goons. Riley literally stumbles over System Six and so begins a beautiful partnership that starts out a tad hitchhiker from hell but mellows out over a shared love of nachos, cold beer and orgasms. 

This is intense and fun and had me on the edge of my seat. I won't spill the beans about the romance but it rocked my world. It turned out in a way that I never expected it would and I love that it surprised me. 

This is one of the best books I've read this year. Hands down. Can't recommend it enough. Just go read it.

Mobsters and Miracles - Lavinia Lewis I liked this. It kept me turning pages and I devoured it. There were a few far fetched things, which I rolled my eyes at. I got over it though and continued on.

I wish we had Danny's POV along with Lucas'. I really did want inside his head. I really did want to know what Cap would do if he found out about them. Would one just quit or would they be okay just transferring? Also, I wish they talked to Anderson after they got busted. He seemed like a good guy only to be caught up :( That made me sad, but then again people do stupid things for money. .

Overall, good suspense/thriller that has a really fast recovery rate!
