I'm the right-hand man of the mafia king. She's a girl with a past she's desperate to hide.
But I need something from her. And I know she won't help me. Not willingly. She'll need some persuading.
Lucky for her, I can do that.
Something about this girl makes me curious, though, and it's more than the scars that line her back. She's on the edge of something. Something bad. She's like a beautiful, perfect doll coming apart at the seams. And the last string is about to snap.
She thinks I'll hurt her. Break her.
But thing is, she's already broken. And she and I, we're two peas in a pod. She's my match, the perfect opponent. She'll fight me to the finish, but I'll win. I always do.
Because I'm a man used to getting what I want. And what I want is her.
Author's Note: Giovanni is a STANDALONE dark mafia romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia World. It's an emotionally gripping enemies-to-lovers romance with a hard-earned HEA.

Natasha Knight did it again! I don't know how it is possible but with each new release I find myself entirely under her male lead character's spell... Giovanni is the raw and gritty story of Giovanni and Emilia (Em). Cartel princess, Em hides form her past and Gio is decided to use her and penetratel her secrets in order to track down her twin brother. Secrets he has on his own, and that I longed to pierce! Their cat and mouse play riveted me. Em stands no chance against Giovanni but did she try to fight him! I loved her personnality. Strong and vulnerable, fierce and defiant but so lonely! I instantly connected with her. The physical attraction between them is immediate but trust is hard earned and doesn't come easy in this mafia world. The stakes are high and the threats are permanent, the blood betrayal leaving ugly scars. As the story unfolds, Giovanni, the cold and ruthless right-hand man, slowly shows a protective side I succumbed to. When Em finally unraveled, he was there to catch her fall and hold her. Natasha Knight truly is the queen when it comes to write heartbreaking and beautiful breakdowns scenes. Giovanni is a captivating love mafia romance with amazingly portrayed characters, a mysterious vibe, and intense scenes that totally enthralled me. The tone is dark and the writing excellent. Enjoy ladies!
Giovanni isn't what I was expecting it to be. It was so much better. Giovanni is a man use to getting his way with no problems that is until he meets her, Emilia.Emilia is a woman in hiding. She is hiding her identity, herself from the world but once it collides with Giovanni that is no longer possible. Danger is something these two people are familiar with but neither one is prepared for the explosion that happens between them. Never before have I been bought to tears for both characters in one of Natasha Knights stories until now. I will be adding this book to my physical collection.
5+ "I COULDN'T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN" Stars!!!! This book is soooooooo , soooooooo , soooooooo ...right from the first page to the last! Natasha Knight is among the VERY BEST Mafia genre writers and I can't get enough of her writing!!! Giovanni...dark, ruthless, ALPHA-TO-THE-MAX and has some secrets he doesn't want uncovered! He's looking for Emilia's sleazy snake-of-a-brother and hatches a plan whereby he THINKS he'll flush Alessandro out by using his sister as bait! You know what they say about "best laid plans" right?? Emilia...hiding from a secret from her past that almost destroyed her, she "meets' Giovanni and the "stuff" hits the fan!!! From the start, I FELT for Em and KNEW something terrible had happened to her....and the truth is ABSOLUTELY HEART-BREAKING!!! I also fell for Giovanni right along with her! The twists and turns that Natasha takes you on during this EPIC enemies-to-lovers ride will leave you in suspenseful AWE until the very end! An incredible read from an author who is right up there on my auto-click list!!!
This was an amazing 5 star story. Want to know why? Because the storyline was addicting and the characters were perfect. Let’s not forget it’s about organized crime. Emilia is such a strong heroine that never backs down or quit. Giovanni is a ruthless and feared mafia but Emilia is his entire life. He vows to protect her. Emilia is trying to stay out of the mafia world. Something terrible happened to her and she lays low. Giovanni finds her but it’s her brother he wants, badly. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her. This is an addicting story that I read it in almost one sitting. There was never a dull moment. It’s a dark mafia romance but just enough the way I like them. Great characters that made me love them. The plot twists and turns had me hooked and begging for me. It’s also highly suspenseful and intriguing. Bottomline this is a must read. Standalone told in a dual POV with an HEA. I strongly recommend this story. I can’t wait for more.
