Whatever You Need
Book 2, Castaletta - A Chicago Mafia Syndicate
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Just because you're family doesn't mean you're safe.
The search for Vivian's killer continues, and the more Izabella digs into the darkness, the closer she comes to her brother Freddy.
The syndicate is being held together by a string as Demetri works to get the narcotics ring covered with some help from a couple down in New Orleans who come highly recommended.
Just as things start to calm a little, the violence within the prostitution rings turns deadly.
Someone is targeting the girls and picking them off one-by-one. But who?
**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 second novel.
The second 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?).
This book picks up right where the first one left off and does end in a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers! Emotional rollercoaster ride would be a big yes, anything used before, would be a ferris wheel compared to this. I'm one of those readers who tries to figure out who, what, when, why, how and everything in-between, before the author get's there! If you are too, good luck because when you think you might have something, you'll be back to the beginning. This is a hard review for me to write because I don't do spoilers and this book is....so fast paced and had so much happen. Two quick side notes that do have to do with this series, you may want to read Judged, which is a book about Dimitri's, Drake. Not mandatory, just a suggestion. If you haven't read the Bad Money Series, you could read that before this, as this series is a spin-off and this is the book where it starts to show that. You don't have to, again just a suggestion; however, if you loved the first book in this series, you will love that series too! Ok, so here I go with a summary & NO spoilers! Joe "The Don" Castaletta is not happy about a lot of things, starting at page one. The search is still on for Vivian's killer and Freddy is still MIA. The women at "the paid from men" house (guess that's the best way to say it, without getting into trouble), are still getting attacked. Everyone from the former book is given a task to do and not do. New characters, some from other books & some new altogether, show up. The last book was wow...this book is a speechless, hold on, wow! We find out a lot!!! Demetri & Izzy.... Love them!! Ali is the queen of cliffhanger's and I can't wait! This book is gritty, hot, action, fast paced, drama, more...so much more!! This is not a standalone!! It does end in a cliffhanger, but is worth it!! This is a must read!!
Whatever you Need
Wow. Great book. The suspense drives you crazy while your reading it. It continues the story between Demetri & Izabella, but also introduces Audrey's character. I enjoy getting a perspective from the different characters. You also read how it's going for Marcus after he moves on in Cash Money. Major cliffhanger that leaves you wanting to find out what happens next.
Whatever you need
A great book that starts where we left off. We get to see Marcus Blaine as he transitions from New Orleans to Chicago. The castaletta's are still trying to figure out who put the hit on Vivian, and as things unfold the anticipation rises. Ending with a cliff hanger that makes you need to know how it ends.
