These authors are thieves. There is quite a bit of direct plagiarism in this book. I will never read any piece of work by these people and I hope they get what they deserve.

** I did not DNF this book. I never started it and never will. But I had to attach it to a shelf in order for GR's to allow me to rate it.**

This book plagiarized from a book called Monster in His Eyes by J. M. Darhower. Don't buy books from or support authors that plagiarize!

There are no female Navy SEALs. Should've checked on that before plagiarizing this story. *smh*
This book was too over the top and ridiculous to take seriously.

Note: *Readers Beware* I have not read this book(thankfully)--The Don: Sebastiano by Elle Raven & Aimie Jennison-- but it reportedly contains plagiarism of one of my favorite books. That's not only uncool, it's also illegal.

See message from author JM Darhower for details.

If you haven't read the original story, check out Monster in His Eyes now and support the real author that deserves compensation.

So I received something from a friend of mine on GR that shows this has been plagiarized by JM Darhower. So I'm amending my review because really That's complete bullshit! It did seem familiar but after reading so many books they all start sounding the same. I don't think anyone's hard work should be taken and it sucks big balls when it does happen. Sure people get ideas off other people but don't steal her exact words. If you have to do this in order to write, well than DONT BECOME A WRITER ! G

The FF have just had the weakest Marvel related opening weekend in over a decade. Assuming that's the last FF movie for another 10 yrs...

Interesting possible future scenario for the FF (and everyone else in Marvel).

After something called "The Mutant Wars" FF battles the final showdown with Doom, who's transformed himself into some sort of even less human machine...during the fight, Franklin and Valeria are killed.

Flash forward, Reed is in a space station orbiting the Earth, living in solitude.

Add to your #TBR now now now...once started I could not stop till had I had finished amazing 5 star read.

I do not have the words to express the rollercoaster of a ride this book!
Read it because it has a hot older alpha male that loves kinky sex, is rich, powerful and may be a monster (define monster!?!) It has a beautiful but slightly naive sassy love interest that will go to any lengths to protect her baby

Sebastiano Morassi is the Don, you don't mess with him or he deals with it swiftly. Sebastiano goes though women rapidly, there is no date, drinks or anything of the like they are there for one reason only, sex. When one of his closest men betrays him, he sets out to teach him a lesson.

Sierra Winters can't believe her younger brother has gotten himself in trouble with the mafia. Battered and bruised, Sierra decides to clean up his mess and goes to appeal to Sebastiano. Sebastiano sees Sierra and

I loved this book!

Sebastiano is panty melting HOT. He had me swooning with his dirty mouth and kinky side. Add his Italian phrases and boom, I was hooked!

"How about you try out some new lip-gloss, sweetness. Sebastiano style."

".....we all need to feel loved, even monsters."

Mafia, hot alpha, MUST READ!!

This story was a disaster. The h is sexually harassed all the time at work by her boss. The H has his right hand-man go get her and is furious that the boss would disrespect her. As soon as she comes to the H he shoves up her skirt and moves her underwear aside to see if her carpet matches the drapes. Of course the h doesn't mind bc she is so turned on that the H is hot while she is disgusted by her boss bc he is ugly. The h first seemed like a girl that would not bow down to this man

Okay…I was reading reviews from GR friends and community and was in a funk this weekend (all last week really)…and I thought, Ya! That’s what I need, a good dominant, Italian stallion to heat up the pages. Add in the warning…hot damn!

Well…I was slightly disappointed at the less than full on dominant lover Sebastiano could have been. His “kink” was just weird to me and I don’t believe I will ever look at my MIL’s rosary beads the same way evah! That said, it was a typical story of a

Well I know his name is Sebastiano but since I hate typing out long names I'mma just call him Seb and I loved him right off the bat, "shhh..don't be scared, sweetness. I'm not going to hurt you." Was I going to hurt her? Now, wouldn't that be entertaining. "I just want to play with you a little, baby." He's not one for proper manners, "Sebastiano," I growled at her. "Eff, woman, I just made you come with the flick of a finger, and you call me Mr. Morassi? You address me by my name, you got that? ...more

That's enough for me. An entire MS doesn't have to be stolen for it to be plagiarism. Any part of it just has to be stolen.

Make no mistake...there is a lot of hotness between the covers of this book but, there is something in there that was waaaaaaayyyyyy past my comfort level. If you enjoy dark, erotic and taboo give it a try.

Paulie Winters made two big mistakes when he decided to 'borrow' money from Don Sebastiano Morassi, the number one mafia kingpin in Australia. The first was thinking he could get away with it. The second was letting Don Sebastiano know he had an attractive single sister who would do anything to save her brother.

Sierra Winters has always looked out for her baby brother so when she finds out he's stolen money from his boss she steps in to fix things before Paulie ends up dead. Little does she rea

Ok.....I thought hard about my rating for this and eventually felt it warranted a 3. I eagerly anticipated this book after reading ARC reviews and unfortunately I felt a little disappointed when I was finished. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story but it felt a bit lacking. Exactly what I can't quite put my finger on. It was just lacking something :( I felt the writing style was a touch juvenile and that it needed more maturity to it than it has. Sierra kind of peeved me off, she just kind of ...more

Sierra comes home to find her brother Paulie covered in blood from being beaten and tortured by some of Sebastiano Morassi's men. The head of the most powerful mob family in Australia. Paulie had stolen money from him. Sierra thinking that she can just talk to him and work out some kind of payment plan calls to set up a meeting. His payment isn't quite what she was thinking. He wants her as a mistress.

I got to read an ARC. What can I say but WOW, what an awesome read. Granted there is a lot of
