Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.
Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.
They’ll walk a fine line.
And there is no mercy in this tragedy.
For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.

MY REVIEW: Mafia ❤️ I been waiting on Cory’s story and it did not disappoint. Supremely sexy, a brilliant mess and such a giver. A giver of the Os! It’s all about her. What a man! And what a woman he found as the recipient of his generous giving. The bombshell, baddass Della Costello. She working in the man’s world of mafia and holding her own as her Dad’s loanshark enforcer. Gotta love a gal with a gun and a switchblade! Also love that there’s a crack in this world where certain body parts are more important than brains. Della not only can go toe to toe with the men but she looks like a cover girl while doing it. No army boots and ripped jeans for her. It’s sleek dresses and high heels and painted lips. I love this mafia world the author created and the fabulous characters and families that just keep giving us thrilling stories and sexy romances. This is one of my favorites as far as couples go. The hellion teen prone to trouble finally grows up into a spectacular man and finds his perfect mate in Della. She’s feisty and fierce and I love that she clingy and not only admits it but makes Cory love it. There’s mystery and suspense and a brutal blow as a loved one goes down but the culprit was not much of a stretch. I got into my feelings with this one and loved every minute of it. So good!
I love books! I have been reading for as long as I can remember. I was the kid with the flashlight under the covers reading until the wee hours. Books were my refuge. I was delighted to discover tree climbing. I would take a book and climb to the top of a Mimosa tree and read for hours...and of course ignore my mother calling for me to do chores. I was committed to reading all of the Nancy Drew stories. Ned was my first book boyfriend. When I was in my early teens I discovered Harlequin romances. I feel in love and it changed my life. I was in love with Love 💕 That’s something for a girl who hadn’t been kissed yet. When I read “he thrust his throbbing member into her womanhood” I was lost to discovering more about this particular brand of romance.
But I don’t just enjoy romance reads. My father-in-law introduced me to the high fantasy genre and I loved it. When I bought my first Nook the world of books really took me by surprise. I was enthralled with all the available genres and to my delight I discovered erotica. In most cases, I was with family on visits to bookstores and you don’t peruse those even if they carried them. Oh the shame of it! ;)
Thanks to Nancy Drew I still enjoy mysteries along with romance, fantasy, erotica, paranormal, steampunk, thrillers, and well, most anything except a horror of a horror. My favorite might be romance suspense but it’s hard for me to pick just one.
I had a serious health issue a few years ago and was forced to quite working after building a career I could be proud of. It was devastating and depressing. I lost myself in books and now spend my days (and nights) reading. I am so appreciative of authors and the wonderful storytelling I’ve found in books. It takes me away from my troubles and introduces me into a world like no other. I love books!
