(A reverse harem mafia romance)
Natalia has always known that she was promised to a man 25 years her senior. However, after the Novello brothers, come to the aid of her father Frank, everything changes.
Frank is king of the underworld. The Don of NYC. He has money, drugs, guns, thriving businesses and half the police force under his belt. So when he offers the brothers payment for helping him, he’s surprised when the only thing they demand is Natalia.
Unable to refuse their offer, Frank reluctantly hands over his only daughter to the Novello brothers and a war breaks out between the three families.
When duty and jealousy collide, the flames of temptation are fanned and the only thing standing in the way of bloodshed and war is the promise of seduction from the virgin daughter of Frank Costello.
Can there ever be life after the Brotherhood take their payment from her? Or does the ultimate betrayal lie in her own blood?
I’d like to thank Bare Naked Words for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and when I saw the description of this book I was like yess your girl needs to read this. It’s been a while since I read Reverse Harem so I was there. I was ready and in that aspect the book didn’t disappoint but what did disappoint was the plot which I’ll explain after I say all the good stuff about this book.
Sisco, Joey and Dominic what can I say about these men, all their personalities shined through perfectly and I loved that each of them had distinct personalities that you could see perfectly. Sisco the oldest and untamed, Dominic the middle child and takes all the responsibility when it comes to the business and their family. Joey the youngest and the carefree one. I loved the brothers and I just I think Dominic is my favourite.
The limo scene was hot as hell and honestly it gave me literally chills, and the way that Natalia refused to back down to Dominic I was like holy hell. That he wouldn’t touch her unless she begged and I love that he made her beg it was so good. The sex scenes written in this book was amazing and I loved them and they were just so good!
So now comes to my bad thing about the book and that is that the plot felt second to the book, the plot really didn’t feel developed enough and the ending just threw it completely off there was not hints throughout the book for that ending and it just threw it off and ruined it. I would have preferred to have hints throughout the book for it to make sense and it just didn’t. The plot was rushed way too fast, the author could have written at least another 100 odd pages to thicken the plot up and have at least be a vital part of this book. For me it felt like that the plot was an added extra to the reverse Harem like the author just needed a reason for Natalia to be handed over to the Novello brothers. I’m really disappointed because if there had been more attention to the plot and the story this book could have been amazing.
The book would have been better off having no plot and just being the reverse harem it really felt second and just useless. That being said I did love the reverse harem part of this novel.
