This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Don't Blink... You Might Miss Something.
Joe Castaletta has been running the underbelly of Chicago for decades, but it's now time to turn over the keys to the kingdom. His right hand man, Demetri DeMarco is more than ready to race forward into a new way of doing old school. With Joe's sexy daughter as his enforcer and a gang of mobsters to keep things running smoothly, he's confident, collected and a bastard and a half.
The only thing that's just out of his reach is the one thing he wants most... Izabella.
**If you've read Judged (Ali Parker), this is Drake DeMarco's older brother. If you've read her Bad Money Series... you should recognize Marcus, who joins the crew in this first novel.
The first novel in a long running series. A cliffhanger is possible, though each book is intended to focus on a different part of the Castaletta syndicate structure.
+18 - Mature Themes include excessive foul language, explicit sex scenes and violence/blood/gore. Not for the faint of heart and has the possibility of offending (don't we all?).
Amazingly Suspenseful Gritty Mafia With A Not All Hearts And Flowers Romance!
Finally! I've been waiting for this book and series to start since Bad Money ended! If you read that series and didn't like it, this is not for you! However, if you haven't, you don't need to read that series, before this. Now onto more about this book! I loved it and can't wait for the next book in this series! As I said in my review post title, this book is an amazingly suspenseful, fast paced, gritty mafia book. This is book 1, of many to come, based on a Chicago Mafia Syndicate! "Family. Money. Love." Joe Castaletta, "The Don," swears by. He is getting ready to retire. Demetri is ready, having been the the underboss, but he yearns for one thing... Izabella, Joe's daughter and the enforcer, is beautiful and she's been wanting the same. Both stubborn, they play "a game" to try to get the other to make a move. With so much going on already with "the family"... When so much more than anyone could imagine starts happening... This book is not for the faint of heart! Also, this is where I stop!! I don't do spoilers...sorry!
Take me higher
A great book! It was great to delve into the life of Demetri and Izzy who we met in Justified. I loved every minute of it and I couldn't put it down.
Take Me Higher
This story has it all! If you've read the Bad Money series, you meet Demetri and Isabella and now you get a chance to dive into their story. You get to see how complicated their feelings are for another and it's definitely worth a read. A mixture of crime, drama, and sexual tension make this story full of excitement. I enjoyed it and am excited to see where it goes from here.
