Alfonso and the gang are back at it again. Giuseppe is quickly becoming one of my favorite mobsters. Shanda has softened him slightly which is only for the better. It was nice to see them resolve their issues and I am hoping we get to read a lot more about them in the future. I can't help but want the family to welcome Sergio in and teach him their way of life. If they don't and soon I can see betrayal on the horizon from Sergio. Alfonzo and Selange were their normal cutesy selves. Alfonzo's ...more

I thought this book was EXCELLENT but I had to take a star off my rating because of the editing or lack there of... The story itself gets 4 solid stars!

"Never forget the road which led to your destination, those who have are often the travelers most lost."

I'm doing this...
for two reasons...
1. Lou! OMG LOU WHY?!!
2. This one ended way too soon for me. I'm really missing the longer versions of this series.

That being said, this was another beautiful, erotic, intense at times, and flat out hilarious edition to this series/saga.

If you've been following it I think you're going to love this one as well. If not, where the heck have you been?

Loved it and have read twice already. Geo has been one of my favourites since book 2. Everyone is so serious his comedic timings in the books is spot on and releases the tension. Alfonzo's tantrums & threats roll off of him like water droplets. Shanda is the perfect blend of Amelda and Selange with a dash of Ari. She's tough, loyal, smart, and can curse with the best of them...Lol.

Now that this storyline has been tied it will free up the next book to focus on the big threat of this hidden e

I laughed a ton in this one. Geo is a mess and everything about this one made me laugh. Not sure about Sergio still, seems like he wants to do right but keeps doing the wrong things to people who won't fall for his drama. I knew Nico wouldn't stay gone long, I really like that him and Alonzo are getting along better. Who can you trust?! I thought Sophie was going to be the one who blabbed the info but I'm starting to think maybe Bruno is going to be the real threat seems like he's coming on too ...more

Okay this book made me laugh out loud a few times. There were some jokes in this one. I am enjoying the brothers relationship. Sergio is a hoot.

I wished that this book was exclusively about Giuseppe and Shanda's relationship. I prefer their relationship to Selange and Alfonzo. I wish they were given a lot more time in the stories because the dynamics in their relationship is very interesting.

The Donnas show that they can kill too in this one. I do like that the women are bad ass in the series.

This was a cute book I liked Giuseppe at the hospital that was so funny. I am ready to read more about Giuseppe and Shanda I know their relationship will be hot. Alfonzo and Selange are still a hot couple and I am glad to see Nico is back. I really would like to see a more positive story with Sergio he is Nico Nephew I don't understand why he is not embraced more I feel he would be a more positive character with guidance. I enjoyed this book it was a nice Christmas gift from the author but I ...more

You know I love Alfonzo! I just can't put into words how hot he is. Selange is putting on her big girl thongs and protraying the mob wife perfectly. I can;t wait to read the next one!

Keeps Bring the Heat

I love this series; I can't get enough of the Diaz clan. Alfonzo has grown so much since he was first appointed the head of the mob clan. Now life is about his family. Protecting his family is his number one priority. While he is the head of the mob, nothing comes between his wife, children and him. Yes he rules with an iron fist, and those who are enemies would know it would not be a wise thing to go up against Alfonzo. I've been in love with this character since book one a

I give this book a 3.5, it went down a little IMO. It was more of a filler book in the series. I liked the Gee/Shanda chapters. I think a lot more people are going to get killed in that family because they have to many enemies. Well on the next one.

ok this was really good and I finished it quickly, so much backstabbing is going on who can alfonzo trust? onto the next one...
Jan 13, 2014 Trish rated it it was amazing
Yes Sir! I agree this one was good because other characters were explored more and not just The Diaz'. I'm hooked, I want to see where this is going.
