Alannah Sullivan met Dominic Collazo when she was only in the fifth grade. She knew him when the other kids called him names and made fun of his over-sized facial features. She knew him when he was a shy introvert with a quick temper. She knew him when he was first introduced to the mob lifestyle by his father, a made man in the St. Louis mafia. Alannah knew Dominic before anybody could see his potential, and she fell in love with him when she was just a teenager... just in time for her family to pack up and move away from the city and the boy she loved.
But, Alannah is back now, and after ten long years, Dominic Collazo is all grown up. No longer the quiet loner, Dominic is larger than life, and every woman's fantasy. He's a rich casino owner with the looks of a Greek god, and an alpha male persona to die for. He's also a captain in the notorious Giordano crime family.
When the two of them meet again in the lobby of Lumiere Place Casino & Hotel, Alannah has no idea that her second chance with Dominic will also be her biggest curse. As drama immediately ensues and bullets start to fly, Alannah has to ask herself if Dominic is worth all the trouble that comes with him.
Would you risk everything to be with the love of your life, even if he's the mafia's newest KINGPIN?

So you know when something is hyped up so much and then when you read/watch it you are disappointed because it didn't live up to you expectations??? Well that's not the case for this. I was excited to read this book and I'm glad I did. It is a fast paced book and I loved how he touched on them at a young age. How we learn everything about them ahead of time. If you're looking for a mafia book, this is for you. If you're not looking for mafia, this is still the book for you. The ending leaves me wanting more and I wonder what will happen.
Five Amazing Stars! Alannah met Dominic in the schoolyard when he protects her from a bully. A friendship soon develops and at the age of 15 they proclaim their feelings for one another. Alannah and her family move away. We then fast forward 10 years and Alannah returns. Will Dominic and Alannah be able to rekindle their love? I thoroughly enjoyed this story and found it to be beautifully written. The characters were amazing! The story was full of suspense, angst, danger and romance. I was engaged from the start and read it in one evening. This is the first book in the Italian Mafia Romance Duet and I am looking forward to the next book in the series! I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club. Plot: 5 Chemistry: 5 Pacing: 5 Ending: 5 Character Development: 5
