Sometimes the line between good and bad simply depends which side you’re on…

Good guys can have unsavory secrets, while so-called criminals can live by a code of ethics rivaling that of any law enforcement agency. Bending the law for money, power, or revenge is one thing, but what if you’re bending it for your family—for love?

Review For Cesare by Soraya Naomi.

Loved this short intro into the Syndicate. A friends-to-lovers love story with a twist! It's a little mix of the Chicago Syndicate novels, but with other characters and this features the New York Syndicate. I liked the leads together and would like to see them in CS.

Review "For Cesare" by Soraya Naomi

I'm a huge fan of mafia stories with lots of romance and suspense in it, and this author's books always have that. I might love friends to lovers stories even more so when those two are combined, I'm a goner!!!! I enjoyed it so much that I'm kind of hoping the H/h show up in Chicago Syndicate series.

I was given an ARC of Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele, let just say that I absolutely love her books, and this one didn't disappoint. Alex is a brody, intense characyer, and Meryl just breaks your heart. Definitely looking forward to the other books in this anthology.

Please note: Each book has a separate review where the novella has been listed on Goodreads. Before is a quick summary of novellas were not available to post individually.

Code of Silence - this was an introduction to the wonderfully dark and twisted mind if the author J.L. Drake. I love a book that leaves feeling "WTF have I just read"..."freakin crazy story!" And this certainly ticked all those boxes. My TBR has just grown :)

I love anthologies like this. Thirteen awesome authors have written some fantastic stories for this anthology.

I've read some books by some of these authors already.
Some authors I've not heard of and am super excited to now some new authors to stalk lol

All these stories were flawless with great storylines. Some characters drove me mad & others I loved.

Although I received a copy of this to review I've already pre-ordered my own copy. Anthologies like this is a definite 1-click for me.

For Cesare by Soraya Naomi, part of the Men of Mayhem (A Mafia Anthology).

This review is for Soraya Naomi's book in the anthology, For Cesare. This was a great short story and can be read independent of one of my favorite mafia series, the Chicago Syndicate.

In this, we get a cross between a friends to lovers romance and a second chance romance. The characters are intriguing and even for a short, I had a bit of a surprise at one point. A great story, fast-paced, and one that left me wanting mor

My Review For Cesare by Soraya Naomi part of the Men of Mayhem: A Mafia Anthology. She writes dark, twisted mafia romance. This story is about love/family with powerful men and women that are capable of anything to protect their loved ones. Cesare and Kinsey's story turns from friends to lovers and second chance of romance with a crazy twist! It's a mix of the Chicago Syndicate series and characters that are from the New York Syndicate.

I LOVE mafia books and I have been looking forward to diving in to this collection of short stories. I have read several of the authors’ full-length books, while a few authors were new to me. The best part about this collection is the fast-pace of each individual story. I like books that take off from the start. Each story in this anthology runs with a fast pace, and I enjoyed the variety of characters and storylines. I also like the variety of genres: romance, suspense, mystery, and thriller. F ...more

ARC provided by Soraya Naomi who wrote For Cesare.

It gives you the perfect perspective of her style. She writes dark, mafia romance, where love and family are powerful. Men and women are capable of anything to protect or revenge their loved ones. It's a little mixture of her novels; For Fallon, For Luca and For Adriano (For Cam will release December 8th).

I've read all 3 Chicago Syndicate books so far and I love her writing although, I have to be honest, some parts are sometimes hard to read for

Amazing anthology. I'm usually not a big person on anthologies, but I love a lot of these authors and wanted to see what some of the authors I have never heard of had, and I wasn't disappointed at all. This really was a great read and I would highly recommend it.
Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
This is one of the bests Anthologies I ever read.
Its amazing how thirteen authors so different from each other could have put together all this stories about the Mob. I'm really enjoying reading this genre, all the suspense, the thrilling, the twists can captivate you into more!

I’m still in the process of reading this anthology but thought I’d leave a review of the stories I’ve already read.

Infringe - JL Beck

This is a bonus novella from the Kingpin Love Affair series. I haven’t read the other books, although they’ve been sitting on my Kindle, but I think it’s high time that I did! This novella sees Alzerro and Bree in married bliss with a child and, by the sounds of it, Alzerro is straight these days working for the FBI. However, although happy, Bree is worried that

This book is a collection of short stories by various authors. There are oh so many books on the market that focus on the so called good guy getting the girl, but few highlight the relationships of the so called bad guys. These short stories take the reader into the darker side of the world and give us a look at how loyal, loving, and honor bound the alpha males of the darker side are.

I love to read mafia romance stories. When I saw there was a Mafia Anthology, I knew I had to check it out. How can you go wrong with 13 stories by different authors? You're bound to find some you like. I sometimes get overwhelmed by Anthologies because they are big books. So for this one I jumped around and started reading the stories by author that I had read before.

I started with Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele. I loved it. It's told in the dual POVs of Meryl and Alex. I got hooked into the s

This review is for Infringe by author JL Beck.
Infringe, by author JL Beck, is a short novella of A Kingpin Love Affair. It is about the life of Bree and Alzerro, and their lives as husband and wife and as parents. Alzerro is no longer the hot headed, crazed mobster that Bree fell in love with, but a law abiding citizen working for the FBI. The heat and passion that Alzerro brought once upon a time with his reckless and dangerous ways has diminished, making Bree wonder where that man she fell in
