This book had an interesting turn of events that I did not see coming. If this was the final book in the series, it had a nice bit of closure at the end. The story flowed well and seemed to be as realistic as I would assume the crime world to be. I dont know that it was my favorite as far as story line, but the editors certainly put more effort into this one than the previous 2. I think I only had to use one hand to count the number or proofreading errors.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sweet, Plenty of Action and Fun!
Mobster's Vendetta is a Mature YA Romance and book three in the Mobster series written by Amy Rachiele.
3 Dangerous Mobsta' Stars!
Mobster's Vendetta picks up three weeks after book two, Awakening the Mobster. Meg and Erin are recuperating and hiding out in the casino hotel while Antonio and Vito are out hunting down Uncle Tutti.
Meg and Antonio are well settled into their relationship which only grows stronger every day. Their romance is maturing and it beautiful and sweet.
Vito is still crushing on Erin but being silent about it, though his actions are very much geared towards protecting her, from everything.
Antonio has stepped completely out of his fathers shoes and is donning his own pair as he is taking on more responsibilities in the family. He's leading his own search party, making his own decisions and leading his own crew. But being top dog comes with sever risks as a rival steps up to the plate and takes a hit out on Antonio. With Vito by his side, they rush head first into danger.
I still love the friendship and loyalty between Antonio and Vito. They are more like brothers than friends and I admire the respect and love Vito has for Antonio.
This book was well put together, there was a good amount of action and the story flowed well. We get plenty of time with the mains, Meg and Antonio, as well as the sub characters and are even introduced to new characters.
But I have to say, I still dislike the Vito/Erin budding relationship. She's just turned fifteen! Him crushing on her feels wrong and I didn't care for the amount of attention that was paid to that part of the story. I know the author was gearing up for book four, which will be about them, but she doesn't seem strong enough to be in the business. I think she will have to go through some major character changes before we see her again.
I loved that Meg turns out to be this natural born shooter. She's deadly with a handgun.. rifle.. it didn't seem to matter, her aim never failed. She has this natural calm and ability and instincts when it comes to that part of the business. And I liked that she gained the respect of the guys with her ability and had a small amount of power in a business that sees very little from women. But I didn't like the fact she was "going into the family business". I wanted her to stay apart from that, to be the island for Antonio, his safe place. Doing the things she'll do, will change her. It has to. It will harden who she is and she will no longer be that beautiful soul Antonio has fallen for. Yes, she'll be immersed in Antonio's world and by his side in all things, which is cool on some levels, but I'm still conflicted about this part.
The Wrap Up:
This book wasn't bad but I'm not sure I like some of the directions the author has taken the characters, but it was a decent wrap up on Meg and Antonio's beautiful and romantic tale.

So sad that this is the end of the series because I really have enjoyed every moment of Megan and Antonio. Although I have to say....Yay! Erin and Vito are getting their own story. I really hope that the author doesn't forget about the other interesting connections in Erin's story. I am selfishly hoping that their story will contain some bits about how things are going for Megan and Antonio too. Now on to what I should be writing about-this book. This was an appropriate final book to the series. I was happy to see that Megan really started to come into her own and figure out where she fit in with everyone and everything else. And Antonio and Patrick saw it too. I have decided that I hate Megan's mom and I really hope I don't have to see much of her in upcoming stories. But, I am finally starting to get Megan's dad a little bit and I hope to see more of where that goes in future stories. I love that this was a happy ending, but not a cheesy happy ending-it was much more realistic that I anticipated. Overall, I thought it was a great finale to the series, but I can't wait for more so I am anxiously awaiting Erin and Vito's story. I just hope it skips ahead a couple of years as I am having a hard time thinking about a 15 year old and Vito.

AHHH!! Why is it over?!?! I want to read more books about Megan and Tonio NOWWWWW!!! Gimme gimme!!!!
Ok, enough of that silliness.
I enjoyed Mobster's Vendetta very much. I just think it went so fast. I know I'm not a fast reader, but for some reason I keep getting through Rachiele's books super fast. Maybe it's because I enjoy the story so much. On that note, I absolutely cannot wait until Vito and Erin's story comes out!! YAY!!!!
I'm having too much of a fangirl moment to write a proper review. I can only say I love this series and anyone else who likes a little romance mixed in with their action and drama should give it a shot.

I loved this series! This was a perfect conclusion to Megan and Antonio, even though I could always enjoy more. I am so glad I took a chance on this series last year.
This book has a lot of excitement with a new villian coming into play while they are trying to catch Uncle Tutti. Demetrius, and he is one crazy dude.
I recommend this series to all New Adult lovers.

In the third book of the Mobster series, the saga continues as Antonio tries to take care of family business while trying to leaving Megan out of it, to keep her safe. Unfortunately, Megan is already in too deep into the mob world and won't be left behind, not when she can help.
There are so many things I love about these books. First is Antonio and Megan's relationship and how it evolves over the course of the books. He is deep into the mob, the son of a Mafia boss looking to take over the family business when the time comes. In the first book, Megan is innocent to the things going on around her. By the third book, she is aware and accepting of what Antonio does and even willing to help do whatever she can to keep him safe. She's grown up a lot through the pages and that shows through their relationship and her relationships with others.
Second is just the story itself. I admit I do not really know anything about mobsters, their code of ethics, or their language, but the author does such a great job immersing the story in details that she make it completely believable.
Third is Vito. He is the kind of friend everyone needs. He sees what needs to be done and does it, no questions asked. He's always got Antonio's back, no matter the cost. I am glad we got to see more of him and get to know him better in this book, and I look forward to his story coming soon.

I'd rate this a 3.5, I really like how the author has "glossery" it's funny (growing up in jersey) a lot of these terms are frequently used. I liked the storyline and the characters all around continued to grow. I liked to see Megan from the first volume to this volume really become a woman in the sense of standing up for herself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Oh No... Don't be over already!! All of the Mobster series were incredibly short stories, but this one just seemed to speed past so much quicker. I love Antonio and Megan they have addictive chemistry and their stories are guaranteed to be action packed. I have been awaiting this third installment for months, and I can't not believe it was over that quick. Even more importantly it is the last of the series. I was so excited to see Megan taking a more active role in Antonio's world through this book. She seems to embrace the lifestyle that she never knew she had, and conquers all of her fears. I LOVED IT! There is nothing better to say. Rest assured that Amy Rachiele is not letting us down although this storyline may be done, but the journey if far from over. After the obvious building of attachment for Vito and Erin over the past two books; I just discovered that Rachiele's next book will be their story. I can not wait for that book. So here is to the months in waiting while I will be ever so patiently waiting.~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Book 3 wraps up all the major Mobster angst! Action packed, romantic, and a serious rollercoaster ride. Megan and Antonio deliver passion and strength that the reader can feel.
Vito is awesome!
