My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Gianni Marino pulled some stupid stunts as a kid and young man; he and his twin would switch off with girls and he never thought anything of it. It was expected after the first time. The only girls they never switched with was Bridget, Dante’s girl and Cara, Gianni’s girl. However, when Gianni began to get too close to Cara he would always pull back. For some reason the HEA seemed to scare him.
Cara has given Gianni too many passes and now that they are grown and in their 40’s, she’s no longer opened to giving him chances. So, when she starts seeing Umberto and Gianni warns her away from him, she digs her heals in deeper. She carries on the relationship for months, but when Umberto begins to feel threatened, he turns on her and she finds herself on an auction block being bought by a man that bids the highest. Little does she know that her whole life is going to be changed forever.
I really like the Mafia Wars books, but the back and forth between Gianni and Cara got to be a bit too much in this book. I understand her reluctance to trust and accept Gianni’s word that he has changed and is committing himself to only her, but she pushed a lot about their past, while Gianni kept asking her to please put the past behind them and trust that he was a different man, she kept seeing him as the arrogant, stupid young man that she knew and not the grown, dangerous, and committed man in front of her. I liked their story and once it got past the part where she kept questioning his every move, it was good. Gianni is a dangerous, dark, and deadly man that protects those he loves fiercely, and Cara is at the top of his list for protecting. It was a good story and I look forward to Crazed. I give this book a 4-star review.
