First let me say if you haven't read Making Angel you really need to read it first. I also want to say that I am not a huge mafia book fan, however I really enjoyed both Making Angel and this one. After reading book one I knew I needed to know Bones' story. He just really wormed his way into my heart in the first book and I really couldn't wait to get my hands on his book. I was not disappointed at all. I fell even more in love with him. Ari was introduced in the first book as well since she is ...more

Bones and Ari's story.
Best to read book 1 first as the 1st couple from book 1 feature heavily in this book.
A good story, bits of humour but also a vulnerable heroine under all her bravado.

First the legal mumbo jumbo. I was lucky enough to be given an Arc of Breaking Bones. I have to be honest, if it disappeared off of my reader I would immediately buy it. Both, Angel and Breaking Bones, are worth reading again. They are AMAZING!!!! They are THRILLING!!! They are EXCITING!!!! They are ADDICTIVE.
If you haven't read Angel, you really need to read it first. Consider it an intro to Bones, his dedication, his protective nature, his loyalty. Also, you have been warned---- BONES is MIN

Review to come!Breaking Bones is the companion novel to Making Angel but is best read in order because of the story arc that runs through both. The first book is about Angel who is part of the Mariani crime family and this one is about his best friend and guard, Bones. The characters are all present in both books,

Bones is a bit of a tough guy and in this book we get more of his story and how he came to work for the Family. We get to know more of his innermost thoughts and what he really wants ou

I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and comments are my own.

I have to admit I am new to both this series and author, though not the genre, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I first started reading. Breaking Bones is the second book in the Mariani Crime Family series by Amanda Washington. The two main characters from book one, Angel and Markie actually become secondary characters in this book. After reading other reviews from ARC readers a

**2.5 Stars** The story continues from the first book with Bones and Ariana being the key characters this time around. Having a Nonna with power in the Mafia World where women are respected but must tow the line didn't work for me.
Key area's of this tale such as the warehouse confrontation for one, was easily wrapped up in such a fleeting fashion it irked. Not enough details and development there; which was really what the story was aiming towards but fell flat.To be honest more action and les

Good story

Wish there were a few more books in this series. Maybe in the future, I have a feeling Nonna isn't quite through yet..... I just wish I got see both couples married.
