NOW LIVE!!! Off the Record: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby! + My Review

Off the Record: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the thrilling conclusion to her With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

Rafe “Rocco” Martinelli was never one for the family business. Alas, being born into a crime syndicate means doing the family’s bidding and making sure you’re connected–and, yes, breaking a few kneecaps. Rafe would love nothing more than to hang up his enforcer apron and live a quiet life, but as more and more higher-ups in rival clans turn up dead, Rafe realizes he doesn’t have a choice. Especially not when the captivating and gorgeous bratva princess needs his help.

Dr. Annika Tarenkov learned early on that her belongs to her family. She’s a pawn in the long game, a bargaining chip for power and prestige. She gave up the only person in her life she thought she could be happy with, all for the greater good of the family. Now, a newly made widow and desperately seeking answers, she’s forced to confront her past as it converges with her present. But all it does is make her wonder about her future and how she can make Rafe hers again. While being with him is like wrangling a toddler at times, he still makes her heart race and her breath catch. And she wouldn’t feel safer with anyone else.

With the chips seemingly stacked against them, they must work to uncover the perpetrators of the nefarious plot that’s been brewing for some time–before it’s too late.

Dang! I was so looking forward to this second chance romance between the youngest Martinelli hunk Rafe/Rocco and the Tarenkov beauty Annika. She’s the brilliant doctor that just went through a terrible ordeal thanks to her nasty dead husband. That ordeal just keeps giving causing Annika pain. She’s hoping for that second chance with her teen love Rafe. Family drama ended their romance years ago but now the families are aligned. Can they get back what they had? You really have to read the first two books to really understand the history with these characters. I love Rafe/Rocco. He’s sexy and funny and a dreamboat. Such a protective mafia killer! After the boss babes Nadia and Ivie, Annika just didn’t live up to the Tarenkov name for me. I loved the story with all the couples together fighting to take out their enemies but the suspense was lacking for me. Sure there were a few surprises and the violence was interesting but not a lot of pop like the first two stories. Also, the romance was a little lackluster and the sexy times were not as panty melting as the previous stories. I guess this wraps up this mafia series except for the elusive Curt. Maybe we’ll get his story. While this wasn’t my favorite of the series it’s still an entertaining read that’s went quick and is a good ending to the series.
