Interesting Perspective on the Mob
This series gives you a family view of the Mob with its inner workings and the struggle of one who tries to straddle the line between good and evil. It shows one who thinks he has it under control and by the end realizes that control is a slippery slope and he is more damaged than the one who accepts his own fate. Aleatha R. Is brilliant in the twists and turns of story telling that keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more.
Every time I read Aleatha Romig book she amazes me more and more. Every time she has a new book it gets better and better, she outdo herself each time. She is so talented and it’s just mind blowing to me how she does it. How she comes up with all these amazing stories. She put so much detail in each book, each scene. All her characters are developed into detail, she ties everything up nicely and answers all the questions we have. Not everyone can do that, but Aleatha does it, every single time.
Respect is more then I was imagining it would be. It is absolutely beautiful, gripping, sad but happy at the same time, story about ones life struggles, family and love.
Oren Demetri is character from her Infidelity series (not about cheating). This book is his life story. It begins with him as a little boy and goes through adulthood.
It is not necessary to read Infidelity series to enjoy Respect, HOWEVER I highly recommend you read it. I would read Respect first then continue with Infidelity.
There is a lots of details about some events that we got a glimpse of in the Infidelity series and then a lot more. The book is in Oren’s POV so we can see what he was thinking and why he did things and made decisions the way he did. There were also few things that I did not know about (I probably missed that in the series) but it was good to see it here. It just made whole story that much better.
Even that I knew what will happen in few major events in the book, Aleatha was successful to make me cry some ugly tears at 1:30am in the morning. The parts were so emotional.
It makes me think about life, about decisions we made, about how far you are willing to go for your family, for loved ones, what is really most important in your life, how you showing it.
I love every single word in this book. Brilliant work Aleatha!
This is a must read, even if you decide not to read the rest of the books, do yourself a favor and read Respect.
