My Review:

With action from the very first scene, Angie Derek’s Mafia Secret grabs hold and doesn’t let go. This is a gritty love story, there is so many twist and turns with a mafia theme running through out. It was a slow build but when it took off it was explosive and hot.

Lessa isn’t a stereotypical cheerleader, she’s smart and tough and I loved her. And Marco, well Marco is sizzling. I would gladly take on the whole Mafia issue if I got my own Marco. This was my first Angie Derek story and I loved it. I’ll definitely come back for more of her work.

This is a great love story at the heart, and a great example of love making anything work. The Tazio family adds an extra bit of flavor to this story, and I know that I love a story that has interesting supporting characters.

I recommend this book, for its secrets, its love story and the steamy satisfying romance that it is.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.


He held a white envelope against the glass and spoke again. “I have a letter from your father.”

She relaxed a smidge. He had the wrong person. Her father had died when she was six. But she couldn’t completely relax. He was still a stranger, and after this afternoon . . . . Whoever had tried to run her over still hadn’t been caught. And maybe she’d heard him wrong. Her car was running and the windows were shut.

She took her left hand off the steering wheel and cracked her window a quarter of an inch so she could hear him better. “I’m sorry, what did you say?”

“I have a letter from your father.”

“I think you have the wrong person.”

“Alessandra Noelle?”

Lessa hesitated, her right hand tightening on the steering wheel. “Yes.”

“You’re the correct person.” His voice was low and soothing.

But it had the opposite effect on her nerves. She shook her head. “I can’t be. My father died nearly twenty years ago.”

He hesitated this time and she focused on his face. The security light cast him in harsh shadows. He wore a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a tie. No suit jacket. Probably a concession to the heat. His dark hair was brushed back off his face and his eyes appeared as dark in the night.

His lips firmed into a frown before he spoke again. “No, he didn’t. He died two days ago.”
