Genre: Romantic Suspense

Alannah Sullivan met Dominic Collazo when she was only in the fifth grade. She knew him when the other kids called him names and made fun of his over-sized facial features. She knew him when he was a shy introvert with a quick temper. She knew him when he was first introduced to the mob lifestyle by his father, a made man in the St. Louis mafia. Alannah knew Dominic before anybody could see his potential, and she fell in love with him when she was just a teenager… just in time for her family to pack up and move away from the city and the boy she loved.

But, Alannah is back now, and after ten long years, Dominic Collazo is all grown up. No longer the quiet loner, Dominic is larger than life, and every woman’s fantasy. He’s a rich casino owner with the looks of a Greek god, and an alpha male persona to die for. He’s also a captain in the notorious Giordano crime family.

When the two of them meet again in the lobby of Lumiere Place Casino & Hotel, Alannah has no idea that her second chance with Dominic will also be her biggest curse. As drama immediately ensues and bullets start to fly, Alannah has to ask herself if Dominic is worth all the trouble that comes with him.

Would you risk everything to be with the love of your life, even if he’s the mafia’s newest KINGPIN?

Alannah’s life changed at age 11 she met outcast Dominic when she started a new school. He protects her from a bully because no one messes with Dominic. They form a bond that no one can break although Dominic has mafia connections and Alannah knows he is involved in some “bad stuff”. When she turns 15, Alannah finally admits to Dominic that she has romantic feelings for him but her Dad is transferred to Alaska. After being separated for 10 years, will their feelings survive despite no contact? Are they truly soul mates or has Dominic been sucked too far into the Mafia lifestyle to be redeemed?

“As I get ready to fly to stupid Alaska, I’m worried you’ll forget about everything good we’ve experienced. I’m worried that when I leave, you’ll change, and I’m scared to death of what might happen when I’m gone.

I need you to hang on to the parts of you that I love. I know there’s things about you that I choose to ignore, but please know that I love EVERYTHING about you. I love your smile, and your sense of humor, and your willingness to open up and be honest. I love your loyalty and your protectiveness. I love your passion. I love YOU, Dominic. Please don’t ever forget that. Don’t forget that I love you, and don’t forget the things I love about you.

Please don’t forget.”

Mafia romances are sort of my weakness. I blame “The Godfather”. Alannah and Dominic are soul mates who are ripped apart by circumstances that they never saw coming. Dominic is the epitome of great mafia romantic hero. I love that he worries about Alannah’s safety and how to protect her from his enemies and his family. He values loyalty above all, and it doesn’t matter that he’s had to do some shady things in the past. He is redeemable. Alannah knows his heart. The roller coaster of who is after Dominic and if he can find his way out of this mess was a great ride. I would definitely love to read more about these two.

If you like suspense and a little romance, this was a really good mafia book. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Dominic around the corner. Who knew all of this was going on in St. Louis?
