★★★★★ Intel Chicky Reads Romance (Kara Merideth) – “I’ve read all of Eva’s mafia books and this one was a bit of a departure from her usual tales, but what a totally fantastic ride!”★★★★★ Karen_Lee_Reads – “Readers get humor, shenanigans, a couple whose hot and steamy relationship keeps readers happy and a truly nice Irish Mob leader.”★★★★★ Jess and the Traveling Chair – “I CANT. GET. ENOUGH. Y’all this book is one that you stay up until 2AM to read because its mysterious, SPICY, and the perfect amount of possessive alpha male.”
The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.
And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.
Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.
Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.
He only wanted one thing…
Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.
Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Four college friends that met their first year of college. Two are related, one comes from familiar family, but one is new to the group and fits in perfectly. They are the Ride or Die kind of friends. She has no idea about who her family is because her parents didn’t want to raise her. Now Davina’s part of a mafia family by association. One mistake and the lives of all four girls turns upside down. They’re making some crazy decisions.
He’s the head of the Brennan Mafia family and he is connected to some very powerful people. He’s also the father of Davina’s best friend. He will do anything to protect his family while he and his son work to take down those that killed his best friend and his family. He includes his daughter’s group of friends as part of his family and watches over them and protects them.
I loved this story of forbidden love, age-gap, and crazy young girls doing their best to find their way in a world of power, protection, and overbearing men. They do some crazy things and believe they are getting away with all of it, but there is always someone watching. I love Eva Winners’ books; she writes her characters with so much charisma and character that they feel like friends. Her books have made me cry and laugh, but they always leave me wanting so much more of her characters and their stories. I give this book a 5-star review and I cannot wait to read the Kingpins of the Syndicate Series books.
