Heavy is the head that wears the crown …
Andino Marcello’s world is turned upside down when overnight he goes from capo to boss-in-waiting for the Marcello empire. Here, duty waits on no one and with it comes expectations he isn’t sure he can fulfill. At least, not in a way the mafia expects.
Every choice in this life has consequences.
Even if that choice is love.
The one thing Andino won’t budge on is having Haven Murphy at his side. No matter the cost, she will be his. Whether that means starting a war, hurting the person he loves the most, or changing the very foundation upon which the Marcello legacy was built.
For her, he will do it.
It’s the only vow he might be able to keep.
Andino + Haven: The Complete Duet features the full-length novels Duty and Vow as well as the companion novella, One Last Time.
Another outstanding addition to this fabulous mafia series that I adorn. I am so invested in these terrific characters this author has given us and the stories about them. Family, God, duty. Such a dichotomy of values with these sophisticated criminals and their legacy empire. Next to the original filthy Marcello, Antony, Andino is the filthiest. The cunning brutality of his grandfather, the domineering control of Uncle Dante, the cold harshness of Uncle Lucian and the street smarts of his wise guy father, Giovanni. Andi was up and down for me in other stories and in this one. Sure, he has the Marcello good looks, charm and sexiness but he can be a cold bastard even to his family. The crown may be heavy but that’s what his family is all about for the legacy to survive and he knows it. He may want to do it his way but he’s selfish. Nothing against Haven because she’s a boss babe. I loved her but not for the family. What Dante said at the end caused my heart to crunch. Is it the end of the male blood? The last true Marcello boss? I’m all in my feelings about that! Unlike others in this series I was left twisted up from Andino’s story. I hate to say that because the romance between Andino and Haven was intense and sexiness personified and at times glorious. Ooh, he’s a nasty one! The maneuvering and manipulation of Andino was masterful as he was determined to get what he wants and to lead the family in his manner. Some of his deviousness was spectacular as he positioned himself to have no opposition when the time comes for him to step up as Boss. I loved how the family supported Andino and welcomed Haven. I do think Haven was ill prepared for the Marcello way of life. This can be read as a standalone but to really know this family it’s best to start at the beginning. I started toward the end and went back to the beginning with the Marcellos. With this story I now know who Val is from Chris Guzzi‘s story. Yes! The light comes on! I’m all over the place with how I feel about Andino’s story because Dante did me in with his revelation. Ugh! I NEVER get caught up with characters like this! But we’re on to the fourth generation with Lucky and little G and all the beautiful girls. This family is loaded with girls. To bad the family is entrenched in the old world patriarchal rules. The writing and storytelling are stellar as usual and I am always ready for more of this magnificent mafia world.
