If you have not started to read Harley Stones mafia series you are missing out! I love, love, love her MC series and her mafia series is just as great. Breaking Bones is book three in the series and I could not wait to read it... I may have asked her when it would be coming out. I was silly and decided to start it late in the evening to read " just a couple of chapters" famous last words! I look up and it is 3am and I am starting the last chapter. She writes the kind of books that you just get sucked into and don't realize the time. Bones is the bodyguard and solider in the Mariani crime family, he is loyal and understands the life he choose. Ari has had a rocky life and is trying to rebuild it after a band relationship and choices. She did not expect to fall for Bones who guards her sisters fiance but it happens aways. Bones is bound and determined to stay away from her but when their chemistry ignites there is no looking back. This book has all the feels and heart flutters. There is steamy romance and suspense. It has the great Mafia elements and a great story. There are moments in this book that you can literally feel the emotion and just enough angst to make things interesting.If you are looking for a book that will catch you from page one then get this book! Dont be a wise guy and miss out on this great read!
Book 3 in the Mariani Crime Family series was just as action packed and exciting as the first two books! This book is about Bones (of course!), the best friend of Angel, and Ariana, sister of Markie. The beginning of this story overlaps the ending of book 2, just a bit. This book could probably be read as a stand alone, but there is an ongoing story line that continues from one book to the next. Reading the books in order will definitely add to the reading experience. Bones had an unusual childhood. He was raised by his mother, after his father disappeared. At age 10, he made a fateful decision to defend a boy in his school. This boy turned out to be Angel, and Bones was approached by Angel's great uncle, Carlo, about providing protection for Angel, in exchange for the Family taking care of his family. This turned out to be the beginning of Bones' association with the Mariani Crime Family, and the beginning of his friendship with Angel. Bones is loyal to the Family, and to Angel, but when Ariana catches his eye, he has a hard time staying away. He knows that he should distance himself from her, because it's dangerous for someone in his position to get too close to anyone. But Ariana is as stubborn as Bones is loyal. She knows what she wants and is determined to have it. This book is about family, both blood and not. It's about loyalty, and trust. There was a lot going on in this story, but it was so well written, it was still easy to follow. This story wasn't as emotional as the last, but was full of excitement, and loaded with surprises. The entire series has kept me on the edge of my seat, and this book just upped the ante. Totally a must read!
