Call it instinct or insanity or probably a little bit of both, but I can already tell that, when he touches me, it’ll be electrifying.
5 Mafia CROWNS
Parker has done it again. She has created an utterly unputdownable story filled with passion, angst and love. This story grabs you from the first sentence and keeps you entranced until the very last page. Damiano and Renata are perfection together I could not get enough, I did not want their story to end.
“She reeked of strength. Wore it like a little black dress, hugging every delicious inch of her skin.”
Renata is a mafia princess that was exiled to Texas as a teenager when she witnessed something she shouldn’t have. She is beautiful and strong but learned early on to make herself look less so as not to be noticed. She dressed down and dyed her hair so that those around her were overlook her. But she is wicked smart and pays attention to everything going on around her. She doesn’t want to be part of the Mafia she wants to carve her own path in life. She was an amazing character I loved the way she stood up to her own father and to Damiano’s she never coward in the presence of these Mafia bosses who were used to woman not standing up to them. Her strength and the way she didn’t rely on her beauty made her one of my favorite heroines.
“If you remember, the air vent on the wall separating our rooms stood above both our beds. I could hear everything, and you spoke my name like it belonged on your lips.”
Oh, Damiano what can I say he is Alpha Deliciousness. He notices Renata immediately and knows what she is doing by dressing down and trying to appear unassuming. He gets glimpses of her strength when he witness’s her standing up to his father multiple times. Damiano protects her at school and he can’t help but fall in love with the strength and passion she exudes. The parts where they are reading in the library together will melt your heart into a puddle. Insert all the swooning when he reads to her. When something happens and she leaves he never stops looking for her, he spends years trying to find her. She held a piece of his heart that he wasn’t getting back.
“I love you. Every good memory I have is with you. Every breath I take is for you. Every dream I have is featuring you. It’s. All. You.”
I simply adore this Mafia world that Parker has created. My obsession started with Asher and hasn’t waned one bit. Parker creates such wonderfully complex character’s that tug at your heartstrings. She brings to life strong women who bring their men to their knees. I highly recommend that everyone read this, you will not be disappointed.
“If ever I am gifted the opportunity to betray you, I’ll take it. If life hands me the chance to destroy you, I will. Today. Tomorrow. Ten years from now. I will always seek revenge. And you will never stop looking over your shoulder.”
Ten years ago, I crushed Damiano De Luca’s heart,
vowing false promises I never delivered.
The revenge? Didn’t happen.
The destruction? As if I could.
Betrayal? Not. A. Chance.
We were 18 when I left, taking my secrets with me.
Now at 28, there’s no trace of the jaded mafia prince with the protective streak.
He’s crueler. Colder. More calculated than ever.
And he’s glaring at me from a funeral pew,
looking at me and my wedding ring like we should be the ones buried six feet under.
The war is back on, but I’m not that teenaged girl anymore.
This time, there will be blood.
And it won’t be mine.
