- Monsieur Verdoux.
Mafia Romance - My absolute favourite kind of romance!
“Every last person we kill is for family. If we do not kill them, they kill us. It’s the way of the world. It is self-defense.” ★★★★★!!
A merging of two mafia houses with an arranged marriage between the prodigal son of the Irish and the crazy heiress of the Italians..
This book has everything I look for. A sexy, arrogant and charming man - Liam, and a feisty independent female - Melody. The mafia story line ensures an onslaught of drama and conflicts to keep you rushing through the pages and the development of Liam and Melody’s relationship kept things more than interesting! Their first meeting has to be my all time favourite and the passion and power struggle between them never seemed to let up. I loved it.
“She fucking shot me. I had been so shocked and horny that my mind couldn’t even comprehend what had happened.”
In the real world I’d despise these people. They are selfish and cold and ruthless and not one of them seemed to have any remorse or guilt, easily killing in the name of business. But as characters in this mafia world? I loved it. I loved how loyal they were to their family business and the cold way in which they got things done was exciting. I laughed when Melody would shoot one of her own men in anger and that little sane part of my head would be like ‘Are you kidding!?’ but it just made me love her more.
I wish this were a TV series or a film because I just want more. More Mafia and more Melody and Liam who, however ruthless and cold, did have some pretty sweet moments.
“I want you to love me.” I said softly. “But if not, then I want to be the closest thing to you loving me. I want your loyalty. I want your honesty. I want you by my side and no one else’s. I want your body. I want your mind. I want to know your hopes and dreams so I could one day make them reality.”
Oh and the little teaser that was left at the end of the book? Yeah I NEED to know how that is going to play out. Book 2 needs to be out before the end of the year or I might just lose my mind.
