Summary

Dante: She’s Cinderella, but I’m no prince.

I’m son to the richest mafia lord in Vegas. Heir to the throne under one condition: Find a wife, or I’ll do it for you.

And I found her. But she is too good, too innocent.

I’ll ruin her, but I can’t let her go. I lose my mind when she calls me daddy.

When the clock strikes midnight, the party’s over. She better run, or my darkness will take over.

Gabriella: Meet me at midnight, he says.

My life is work. I promised my father I’d care for my stepmother and stepsisters. I don’t have time for anything else.

Then I meet Dante. My prince charming. I forget everything but him.

When the clock strikes midnight, the party’s over. Dante is hiding the truth from me, and his dark past could destroy everything.

Fun and unique take on a classic fairytale

I'll admit that it too me a little while to get into this book but once I did I enjoyed it. This isn't a deep, dark book like you might expect from a mafia romance. It's a lot more upbeat and lighthearted a good part of the time. Though there is plenty of kink and steam in the bedroom to keep it interesting. The narrator was a little rough around the edges but overall he did a good job. I would listen to him again. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Interesting twist on Cinderella

The story was interesting and far different than I had expected. It had all the things you would expect in a Cinderella retelling but involved so much more. I enjoyed being able to see both sides of the story. I was not to fond of the narration of this book. I felt the flow, tone and infliction could use some work. I feel this narrator could be really good with a little more work on those things. 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

Good Story!!

I really enjoyed this book. It was different than what I'm used to, and would have loved to see some action in it. This audiobook is a different twist to the original fairytale. Dante, being the next in line to the Las Vegas Mafia, needs to find a wife. Gabriella lives with her stepmother and stepsisters. She does everthing they ask of her without complaining, until she met Dante. That's when she wanted more for herself. Will she get it? You'll have to listen to it to find out! #AudiobookObsession

Good story

I liked this mafia style Cinderella fairy tale it was so well told and I found it very easy to listen to. It was not full of action but a slow burn romance between Dante and Gabrielle. It had all the elements of the fairy tail wicked step mother ugly sisters glass slipper but told in a very 2019 way. Paul D Henry has a nice voice sometimes I found you could hear the breaks in his talking where he must of added words in the final but this did not take anything away from the story it just stood out a bit. I enjoyed this book it was a nice story.x 🎧Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

A modern fairy tale.

Mafia Daddy was a Cinderella fairy tale with a lot of modern details.. Dante is trying to get rid of some sort of rules that his father has commanded to follow. he doesn't want to continue living this life, he feels so out of sorts and out of his element.. searching for answers he finds someone who changes his life and makes him see that everything is possible now is up to him if he will follow his heart or continue a tradition that will only make him unhappy for the rest of his life.. Gabrielle works hard to maintain a house and roof to live, she though her father left her with some sort of responsibilities that are making her very unhappy, she doesn't know anything aside of working and fulfilling every demand her stepmother asks.. but her days living this terrible situation are almost over hopefully she will finally have the strength to leave everything behind and start a new life.. this was good listening, it was fast and entertaining, the characters where good and the story was also good. with the narration, I would have preferred more variance in the voice and the dialogues but other than that everything worked well.

YESSSS

Mafia meets Cinderella?! YES PLEASE! I was sold when I saw Cinderella. I LOVE retellings. But then throw in mafia and Dante riding a motorcycle?!?! YESSSS!!!! This was such a good book! Such a unique, darker twist on a classic love story. Not only was it unique on the take of how the story was told, but even the characters had unique names. You had Prince Charming and Cinderella in the original story, but here we had Gabriella and Dante. The narrator did such a great job! It was funny to pull my self back for a minute and just listen to him narrate a female POV while Gabriella is getting dressed! Overall, a great story! I'm very much enjoying Jane's books and most certainly not my last!

Hot cinderella story

I love a dominant alpha male, and the story does not disappoint. Gabriella is an innocent and Dante and as far as innocent as you can get. I was so happy to see that they got the Cinderella happily ever after.

A modern day fairy tale

Mafia Daddy was a hot and steamy adult version of the Cinderella fairy tale. It was a fun and interesting book to listen to. Dante and Gabriella had amazing chemistry and got the happily ever after that they deserved. Paul D. Henry did a good job narrating but it was often hard to tell much difference between the male and female characters. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Mafia Prince meets Diner Girl

Have you ever been spanked by a mafioso? No, didn’t think so (and if you have please send details.) But you know you want to read about it. This is an interesting mix of fairytale meets mafia romance. Not surprisingly You’ll want to throttle the wicked stepmother while easing the burden of Gabriella (our heart of gold Cinderella with a drive to please Daddy*) She is working night and day in the dinner her stepmother owns. Never really expecting more from life until enter Dante on his steed ok motorcycle. Dante may have a playboy past and a domineering attitude but he is always princely with his Cinderella. And as the heir to a mafia empire his life is shrouded in secrets none more precious or alluring than his midnight trysts with Gabriella. I would recommend this for fans of mafia romance, fairytales with a gritty bdsm twist and people in to daddy play. *It should be noted that when I say daddy I don’t mean her actual father. Just like in the OG fairytale Gabriella’s father met his untimely end. 🎧AudiobookObsession

really good cinderella story

I love fairytale reimaginings. This one is no different. I enjoyed the writing, and the narration. The characters were not flat, and one could empathize. I listened to it without stopping. It really just captured my imagination. Great book. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Love fairy tales

This is the second book I've read/listened to by Jane Henry. I liked this one better of the two so far. Contemporary retellings of fairy tales are a favorite of mine. She did really well with this one. I hated having to pause the book. Paul D Henry did a good job. I had to get use to him. He doesn't have much of a voice change for characters so you really had to listen to follow along. But he performed well. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

My favorite fairytale has always been Cinderella, so listening to this story was a no brainer. However this tale is hmmmm, so much more than what I remember from my youth. Lots of steam with intrigue and pent-up desire. Had never heard Paul Henry narrate before, but was pleased with his performance.

Mafia Daddy!!!

Dante is definitely an Alpha bad boy! He's done being the heir to his Mafia father, he just wants something he doesn't think he can ever have! Enter sweet, naive Gabriella who dreams of a Prince Charming that will rescue her from her evil stepmother! I love how this was told in the modern day with a twist, Prince Charming on his motorcycle who has no problem letting his good girl know when she deserves a spanking or something else from her Daddy! What happens when real life gets in the way of their fairytale? Will they be strong enough together or will life tear them apart? This was such a hot, sexy but kinda sweet as well read! Weird I know but it all just worked! I'd recommend this to everyone....🎧AudiobookObsession

Modern Day Fairytale

Mafia Daddy by Jane Henry is a retelling of Cinderella with mild BDSM themes that I listened to on audio narrated by Paul D. Henry. I absolutely love Jane’s books! She does an amazing job making you fall in love with her Dom’s. They are strong alpha males that have a heart of gold. I loved this twist on Cinderella. Paul did a good job on the narration. There were a few spots I had to rewind to confirm if it was Dante or Gabriella, but that may have been the speed I was listening at. I can’t wait to find more projects that Paul has walked in. His voice was perfect for Dante. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves BDSM, Alpha Males, and Modern Day Fairytales. #AudiobookObessionReviwer #AudioBookObsession
