"An enjoyable read!!!"
This had little bit of everything. It was funny, it was sad and it was very steamy. I love this book. Amo and Vincent are freakin hilarious!!!!
"A tad juvenile for my taste."
The story line was good but the story being based on high school teenagers, I just couldn't relate. Almost made me feel like a pedophile listening to under age teens you know what. Lol... However, fair is fair and I'll give the book an honest review. I think the story line was good and it was well written. The narrator made the girls sound either whiny and bi*chy or whiny and weak, though. Otherwise, he was fine. It would have been better if it were at least in a college setting rather than high school. Also, we never really find out why Elle was bullied so badly (or at least the bits that were revealed don't seem merit the kind of torture she suffered) and why she defended Chloe the way she does which kind of leaves us hanging.
Anyway, I don't think I'll move on to the next book, not because it was bad, just because it's not my cup of tea.
"Predictable, juvenile, unrealistic."
This story had possibility, but seemed to be unnaturally pieced together from other mob stories. And the main characters were in high school! It's hard to imagine a bad ass mobster
who hasn't graduated yet. Lol. Won't be getting the next one. :(
"two words...Amazing and hott!"
I absolutely loved Nero. He was sexy, attractive, and so protective it made the story a breeze to fly through. I couldn't put it down.
"Nero and El"
I love how protective Nero was for El and i enjoyed the passion they had when it came to the sex.
"it was good...."
till the end...the bottom simply dropped out. not sure but it felt like the author just drew a blank ...
"I absolutely loved this book"
I am looking forward to book 2 and am hoping book 3 will be available soon.
"A great story told by a great narrator."
I downloaded this audio book for a long car ride and I absolutely loved it. Not only did Sarah Brianne write a terrific story but Aaron Landon did an amazing job narrating. He not only read the book but he differentiated the voices of each character perfectly. The first time I heard him speak in Nero's voice I melted. His voice for Vincent is spot on as well as Amo's and don't even get me started on how on point he was with speaking in Lucca's tone. I purchased the second audio book immediately after I saw he was the narrator. I certainly hope he does the rest.
"Lukewarm mob romance"
I went into this one wanting a juicy Mob/Mafia romance. This one was lukewarm, like reality tv mob.
Nothing like Ivan (Her Russian Protector, #1) by Roxie Rivera or Sempre (Forever, #1) by J.M. Darhower. This featured a young high school girl Elle, who went to take out the garbage after her shift at a diner, but accidentally witnessed a mob hit.
Nero, the boss's younger son, was tasked with "handling" the Problem (Elle). They went to school together, so Nero was in the perfect position to find out what Elle knew and whom (if anyone) she told, and then clean up.
Nero decided to try honey instead of vinegar, but didn't expect to find out what that Elle had all the qualities he desired in a woman. What to do when the girl you want can topple your father's empire.
First, the narrator wasn't good. Also, this story felt cheesy and the mob heirs were corny like those Gotti kid in their reality show. I never felt like Elle was in real danger, heck, neither did Elle. The writing had no real suspense or urgency or fear of life. It felt more like a book on high school bullying.
I may read book 2 but only if I get it on a sale.
"Sexy and Fun!"
Definitely! It's a fun story line, with characters you will want to go back and revisit time and again!
Want to say Jamie McGuire's BEAUTIFUL books. Hero's are alpha and possessive and females are cool characters you'd want to know!
He did a great job all around, but NERO was definitely a favorite. It was cool to hear things from the heroes POV.
The paper from NERO which Elle gets to read at school. Gets you in the heart!
Great series! Fresh storyline, fun characters,overall a great listen!
