Summary

Santino is my king. My lover. My husband. 

He’s the head of the Cavallo crime family, and the moment he choked my vows from me, my life was bound to his. 

I’m done fighting my fate, until I hear two rumors, and I’m shaken to the core. 

One rumor about the past - that I wasn’t the first bride Santino took.

Another about the future - a new bride is about to be taken. 

Changing the old ways is like dousing the flames of hell with tears.

But I married the devil himself, and when I vowed to obey, I lied.

Book two of three in the The Dilustro Arrangement.

A FRICTION-FEST OF FEELS.. & AN O...M...G CLIFFY

This was a non-stop listen for me today as I got lost in Violeta’s world and how she slowly comes to terms with the impact on her heart, her body, her soul.. and her lifestyle, the forced marriage to a Capo has made. Unfortunately, her emotional rollercoaster continues in secrets, Mafia politics, age old out-dated traditions and seeking answers to Santino’s secrets involving her sister. The dynamics between her and Santino range from fire to freeze.. from jagged thorns to soft petals.. and, from tender words of love, to steamy silences in the blink of an eye. But slowly truths begin to be spoken, trust builds between them and passion forges a solid bond between two soulmates. Now Violeta is living in a very different world.. but, when she finds out her young new innocent naïve friend has also been used as a pawn in a marriage bargain, Violeta kicks up a tornado. Violeta’s choice between status quo it or rock the whole ship was made with the full support, guidance and loving help from her devoted husband.. but, power and greed and envy and betrayal are just starting to kick up their own tornado.

This dual POV second slice of Violeta and Santino’s whirlwind relationship has sizzling chemistry, possessive posturing, angsty verbal fights, lust, hunger, ceasefires, dirty talk and very very hot turbulent scenes as they let their bodies do the talking. And, as the missing pieces start to click into place, the storyline deepens with layers, love and hopes for happily ever afters.. but then this talented, skilful, arrrrrgghhhnnoyingly sneaky author sucker-punches you with another doozy of a CLIFFHANGER ending.

Worth a credit? Absolutely yes and I can’t wait for the final part.. meanwhile this was a brilliant continuation of the DiLustro Trilogy and who better to bring the friction, the fireworks and the feels to life between Santino and Violeta than Emma Wilder who did an absolutely brilliant job at bringing the cast of characters and the hot and cold to life.. and Antonio Amato was good too.

Wow! She's done it again! LOVED IT!!

Another great writing job by CD Reiss! She never disappoints! The Mafia Series is a must for anyone who wants a mix of "The Godfather" and her steamy senual writing mixed together for a powerful love story of the King and Queen of the Mafia world.

🔸️🔸️ couldn't quit listening 🔸️🔸️

I love CD Reiss books and this one does NOT disappoint! I couldn't stop listening to either of the books in this series and can't wait to get to Book 3. I LOVE the characters. Santino is the king...he is everything and so in love with his wife. VIoleta is strong willed and determined. Brilliant writing and the narration by Emma Wilder and Antonio is amazing & brings everything to life. Great work CD Reiss!

Engrossing dark romance series

Mafia King, book two in the DiLustro Arrangement series by CD Reiss left me breathless.

It continues the saga of Santino and Violetta. I loved how over the course of the first two book, these two characters learn to love each other against all odds and with the knowledge of the danger their love can bring.

Violetta is no shrinking violet, she is as Santino calls her, his Blood Violet. She starts off as a victim, in the first book, Mafia Bride, but her strength and determination grows with every chapter of the second book.

Although she has grown to love Santino, she now has a mission to break down the walls of tradition and ensure that those that come after her will not be faced with arranged marriages and daughters will no longer be used and sold to pay off debts. They will be free!

Although ruthless as anyone in his position must be, Santino is at his heart an honorable man. The end result of his relationship with Violetta may have surprised him (he is in love and happy with her... feelings be never thought he would have) he still harbors guilt at how their journey began.

Her offer to have him join forces with her to blow up the traditions has an appeal that surprises him. He wants his (future) children to be free too.

As in everything I have read by CD Reiss, the sexual energy between the main characters is palpable. There is an urgency in every interaction and the scenes are hot, hot, hot!

I read the book first, and then listened to the audiobook afterwards. Emma Wilder is brilliant as Violetta. Her male voice is always so good, but when you add an Italian accent into the mix it’s even better! Antonio Amato rises to the challenge as Santino. He delivers a powerful performance and I look forward to hearing a lot more from him in the future.

Mafia King ends in a cliffhanger that I did not see coming. I have lots of questions and there are characters that have a lot to answer for. Book three, Mafia Queen, can’t come soon enough!

What?!?!?!

I was so absorbed that when ending hit, I literally shouted “Noooo!”

I love these characters and the dynamics between them. I NEED Mafia Queen, like right now.

Loved the narrators.
