Finished this book a few hours ago (3:00am ish) It's 8:30am now. I literally opened my eyes, rolled over and popped open my laptop to write this review. I have to get these thoughts down. It may seem rambly. I apologize in advance.

Things I liked:

1) Giovanni Battaglia is still the baddest mafia boss ever written. I DO NOT say this lightly. Everyone knows how I am about my mafia men and that, until now, one has stood head and shoulders above the others in my heart. He is still there but while,

A long juicy tale that is just too good to put into proper words. This has to be one of my all time favorite series. It just gets better and better as it goes along. The twist introduced with Marietta was soooo unexpected and shocking. Way to keep us on our toes Sienna Mynx! There was so much going on in this book that it really read like a movie. At no point was there a lull in the action. It was page after page of excellent reading. Gio and Mira I so love them together. They are so different, ...more

"La Sposa" was yet another enjoyable read by Sienna Mynx and boy did it truly get my attention! It reads like a vivid tv drama with major twists and turns leaving you like: What? Who? Why? Not again Giovanni! Mira sit down! Eva still using that dang blasted pacifier! lol

Essentially this book invited us as the reader to Don Giovanni's wedding to his Bella Mira. This book starts right where book two, "Ti Amo" ended. She's pregnant and being hard headed Mira designing her own wedding dress (after a
Bold and the Beautiful on Steroids

The story continues and it is getting more convoluted and daring and just plain exciting. I don't know what to say about Gio Battaglia. He has lost a notch in my book with his cowardice in facing the truth. I'm scared for Lorenzo because he has secret after fateful secret piling up and the odds are not in his favor. Bella is becoming a strong woman, and assertive as she needs to be to deal with a man like Gio. I like Mira's sister Marietta even though she can b

Oh Giovanni, Oh, Oh, Oh.. Giovanni.. To meet a man like you in real life would be absolute Bliss.... Well, let me take that back.... To meet a man like you who wasn't a stone-cold killa would be absolute Bliss...

But oh well, what can you say?...

Ok, so getting down to business... Sienna Mynx has managed to produce another fine piece of IRR fiction..

Although I started to skip some pages towards the 75% mark, the book was still good..

The only thing that I didn't like was the ending.. I know that

I really want to love Giovanni but I'm starting to not even like his character. He seems so bipolar and bullheaded at times that it's such a turn off. Mira is still dense and falling for whatever not even trying to control her own life. Marietta is just perfect for Lorenzo, those two have the same edge of jealousy in them that it's just sickening. At times I'm not sure if Lorenzo is a complete trader or if he really just made a simple drunken mistake that's haunting him now. Kei really needs to ...more

Wasn't my favorite of the series. It was a little lackluster in comparison to the first two books. The ending left me like WTF? The story just stopped or maybe my Kindle is broken...I had higher expectations considering the release date was delayed. I will continue the series of course, this may just be the dud of the bunch.

One man held me riveted...

And despite Giovanni's incredible alpha masculinity, he wasn't it. Oh Lorenzo, how many lives have you got left? Watching you skate through mission impossible after mission impossible (of your own creation) is becoming my favourite past time. For me the supporting characters really made this book. On to the next one!

This was book three in the Battaglia Mafia Series and to me one of the best so far. Mira and Giovanni get married and she wants her company back now that the world knows that she is alive. There was a lot going on in this book. Lorenzo found another tape and photos of him meeting with the man that killed Gio's father and he continues to help Marietta who is Mira's long lost twin sister or I should say the sister she never knew she had. Giovanni found this out on their honeymoon and choose not to ...more

La Sposa
La Sposa was an excellent read with more romance, more passion and heightened suspense. Thus far, this is my favorite in the series.
I do not want to give the story away, but I found Giovanni to be quite patriarchal. However, most Latin men are patriarchal.
I realize Giovanni had a lot of pressure surrounding his empire and keeping his family safe. With questionable acquaintances vying for Giovanni's empire and his nemesis Kei

I waited for this to come out it felt like it took forever. Well needless to say it was worth the wait Sienna Mynx out did herself. I am so in love with Gio and Mira there love is really over the top and that keeps me wanted more from these two. Gio is such a protector over his girls and will let nothing come between them. I understand why he won't tell her about Marietta that is too much in it self not only that Marietta is not winning any points in my book. She is a bitch that likes to judge t ...more
Ms. Mynx really had you mesmerized with this story you were pulled in from the very beginning …...from the scenery to the sensual sexual twist to the romantic walks on the beach and the history on each city or country that was visited…… ……As for the men.....they were all as sexy and dangerous as ever.....Sometimes I can believe that Giovanni is gonna be this selfish and keep this a secret…….Lorenzo not sure about him anymore sometimes he can be so cold and heartless and other times he seems to w ...more
Sienna has done it again. This book picks up Mira and Gio's relationship right where Destino ended. You can't start this series here and hope to figure out what's going on. Mira is pregnant, getting ready for a her wedding, looking after a toddler, and trying to keep an extremely controlling mafia don happy. Needless to say keeping everything balanced is not easy. Gio's family drama keeps showing up in strange ways affecting her future. Lorenzo is especially tied to a big mystery revealed in thi ...more

Great books, this series really got my attention..

Lord have mercy, I have now finished book 3 and I need book 4 right away. I am not sure how I am going to cope without the Battaglia Family.

I think Gio is playing a dangerous game and it might backfire big time on him. All we can do is hope that love wins out every time.

"Stuck up Bitch" Won't she be surprised who she is speaking of in that manner!!

Sienna Mynx is my author of the month and I highly recommend this series.
Book 3 is definitely a winner in this Mafiosi series. I fell in love with Gio and his ALPHA male Sexiness all over again!
However, the one thing Gio needs to do is tell Mira about Tomisino's involvement in her mother's death before somone else does!
I hope it doesn't blow up in his face. This book ended with a good cliffhanger. I can't wait to see Mira and Marietta's expression when they find out exactly how they are related! Ooo...come on Book 4!

Just let go so many sex scenes and we will be good. I love the books so far. Good job
This series has been one of my favorites and I wasn't disappointed with this installment. I'm not even sure how Sienna Mynx comes up with such intricate plots, because my head was spinning by the end. The story flowed seamlessly and I never lost interest. Gio and Mira are so good together. Even though Gio is the Don, an his word is never contested, Mira doesn't let him walk all over her. Eve and Mira are everything to Gio and as Mira's past is slowly revealed, he will stop at nothing to keep the ...more

I loved this book, this is the book that gave birth to my hatred for Giovanni. I loved him before, I thought he was passionate, intense and a true alpha male. He still has all these traits just times it by one hundred. I can't stand him now, far too possessive and controlling for my liking. Mira has become more submissive and less independent. She's gonna be a 'Donna' now, ciao to her company. Does she even remember what she named it? All this made me lose interest in her (not that she was that ...more

This is book 3 in the series (The Battaglia Mafia) and so far this one is the one I like the least. What killed it for me is the predictability. (If you have not read this series you may want to stop now. I'm about to say something that could ruin the book for you).

Did you stop? I'm warning you...

What killed this entire book for me is the author gave the answer in the prelude. Once I read that I already knew what was going to happen. The prelude made the bracelet click (even though I had an idea

Oh my, Ms Mynx knocked the ball out of the park with this one. This is the 3rd book in the series and it is AWWWWWSOME!! Her writing style is excellent and the book flows like melted butter. :)

I mean seriously, this book is a fantastic read. Be sure to read the first two first. This is the story of a Italian Don who marries a black American woman and boy do they have some drama. Not only is the drama interesting for the main character, but also the supporting cast. I like Giovanni but he is CRAZ

First, if you haven't read DESTINO and TI AMO, DON'T READ THIS BOOK!!! Why? This book is kind of long, 'wordyful', a bit complicated and detailed -- it might throw you off the story, you'll lose the interest and might miss one of the good series of our time. (AND I'm telling you -- this one is different, VERY!!)

I was hesitant to read this 3rd book but I did anyway and finished it (because they said it's not the last -- and yes, with the year 1991, that's a given clue). I don't know how many of G

This was my least favorite book so far in the series. It did not keep my attention. I had the entire day off today and I struggled to finish it. I kept stepping away from it. It was long and boring. Yes a lot went on but I didn't care for much of it.

I did like the addition of Marietta. The mystery of Mira and Marietta's parentage kept me reading. I found myself not caring much about Giovanni and Mira in this book. They were secondary for me. I'm really not liking Catalina. I don't think she dese

La Sposa (The Battaglia Series Book 3)

Whoa...La Sposa! Giovanni has it bad for Mirabella, his "Donna." He vowed to protect her and their baby Eve, which shows why Gio is feared and the leader in the Camorra mafia. So far, he is being selfish in a lot of ways when he refuses to let Mira know her true identity/heritage. Though, his dad Tomosino and his consigliere Flavio are responsible for a lot of the damage done to the famiglia because of their intertwined love affairs.

I'm curious to know will

I am truly pleased with the book and the writing. Sienna did an excellent job. I was getting tired of all the sequels but am glad I continued reading. Giovanni is a controlling emotionally unstable and insecure Mafia boss. He needs to trust his marriage instead of trying to control it. Lorenzo keep digging his hole deeper and deeper. Doesn't he realize the truth will come out about his indiscretions just as the truth about Mira and Marietta wi
