⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Matteo wants what his friends have, one woman to come home to each night. He may finally find that, but his process of going about it is a little skewed.
Vanessa has been on her own for a long time now and can take care of herself, but a chance encounter puts her in the crosshairs of more than one questionable guy.
I enjoyed this story and I loved Matteo. He may be a mafia capo, but he has a heart and takes care of and protects those he cares about. I love his family, both by blood and heart. Vanessa will try his patience on many occasions, but these two are actually made for each other. I love the characters and the story. It’s suspenseful, entertaining and enough action to keep the pages turning. I give this story a 4-star review and look forward to more of The Syndicates books by Cala Riley.
