I hate rules. Always have. Especially since I had them shoved in my face my entire life.
I didn’t ask to be a Valenti. And I sure as hell didn’t agree to follow all their goddamn rules.
Yet it’s been years since I broke one of my family’s most cardinal laws. It was a mistake—I know that now. But that’s the thing about mistakes. You never know you’re about to make one until it’s too late.
Unfortunately, every transgression, every wrong decision has a way to demand atonement. No matter if it’s hours, days, or years after.
I’m still waiting for my past mistakes to exact payment. It’ll come. I know it will.
But now, while I’m sitting in the interrogation room staring at the sinfully gorgeous Detective Lorik Stone, I can’t help but think about all my family’s rules…
…and how I’m about to break another one.
I love a good mafia romance and add in the forbidden of a cop and a mafia princess well I am even more excited to start it. Mafia Princess has an arrogant yet sexy detective and a sassy mafia princess who just wants to live her own life. It is sexy, there are moments that had me laughing out loud, there is just enough suspense and drama to pull he story together. I will say this I wish I was in Karina’s place during that hallway scene because good lord it was hot as hell, when you read the book you will know exactly what I am referring too.
I liked Karina and Lorik as characters and together, beyond the whole forbidden thing because Mafia Law 101 says though shall not be with a law enforcement member but what about not being able to help who you fall in love with? That is one of the dilemmas that Karina is facing after she feels she messed up in the past and doesn’t want to hurt her father even when he drives her insane. Lorik’s mission in life is to take down the Valentis family but there is something about Karina that he can’t deny, can he keep his princess and take her family down? Well read the book obviously because I am not going to tell you. The chemistry between Lorik and Karina is explosive and had me wishing he had his attention on me more than once.
I like how it is setting the rest of the series up. It doesn’t end on a cliffhanger per say but it is left where another book could happen, possible for Karina’s brothers. Bella J has this book whore anxious to read more of the Valentis family. If you love mafia romances than Mafia Princess needs to be on your TBR list.
