I can't begin to describe how disappointed I am in this book.

Having enjoyed 'Kingpin' I was really looking forward to this book in fact I stayed up to try and download it at midnight and it started really well, in fact the first half was fabulous and I was completely hooked and seriously regretting that it had been released on a day when I knew I wouldn't have much reading time.
So all was going well my only issue, and I don't know if this happened in the previous book and it just didn't bother m

After reading Kingpin, I was hoping that there would be more to the story of Dom and Alannah. To say I was happy when Long Live The King was slated to be released would be an understatement. I was good with the first book, but this one literally knocked that one out of the running. This book was everything I was hoping the first one would be. There was murder, mayhem, cunning, coldness, calculation, sex, intrigue, betrayals, subterfuge, etc. I loved every minute of it.

This book was AMAZING!!

I remember after reading Kingpin, that I couldn't wait to see what happened next and let me tell you.. WS did NOT disappoint!! Dominic is back and not to be messed with. The one thing you don't mess with is his Queen..Alannah. As much as I loved Kingin (It was my first mafia romance read), LLtK was on another level. I've read all of his books and as with each book, his writing blows me away. I was on the edge of my seat thinking one thing and then something else happened.

Dominic Collazo is back !!
Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown ! Dominic may have become the King at young age of 27, but the older generation of mafiosi are not ready to bow to him. This leaves him struggling to prove himself over an over again. There's betrayal , there's bloodshed, there's traitors .......and there's love.
His organisation is being hit from every side . His own crew is testing his limits, the love of his life is being bullied and reputation tainted simply by his associati

It’s not often that KFF review a book which hasn’t been offered to us as an ARC and we’re not exactly proud to admit it, either. There’s always one in hand and more often than not, with a deadline. Saying that, we couldn’t be more grateful to those who choose us to give our honest opinion. Seeing that there are so many authors' works to discover and since one of our fave genres is Mafia romance, we one-clicked the first book, Kingpin. We went in blind,

This is nothing that I want to do after reading this book, Fuhgeddaboutit! Alannah and Dominic return in this fantastic conclusion. There is revenge, love, a hole in the family and someone wants Dominic to fail. There is no stopping at what they will go through to ensure that The King is no longer in charge. 27 is a young age and Dominic knows this, however he is ready to rule! But at what sacrifice? Will he loose everyone and everything he has been primed for? Especially his one and only true l ...more

Dominic Collazo has only been the head of the Giordano Crime Family for a short year, and during that time, he has brought the Family to new levels of success. Money is pouring in, and it's doing so quietly and somewhat more above board. With the love of his life beside him, things couldn't be better for him. Alannah Sullivan is finally enjoying life with the man she never stopped loving. However, his power breeds jealously, but she will stand up to any and everyone who would ever talk bad about ...more

I read Kingpin and was thrilled when I was given the chance to read the second book in this duo. This is a mafia/romance/childhood sweethearts/crime story and I have loved every single word that I have read. I plowed through book 2 in a 3 hour sitting as I just couldn’t put it down.
It has a bit of everything you want from a book and at the end of it is a beautiful HEA.

WOW! I hope I do this book justice with my review. I was extremely excited to start this book. The way Kingpin left off made me ready for this book right away. I will be honest, I was worried this book might not be as great as the first one but rest assured, it is just as good if not better. The first few chapters get you refamilair with the characters but in no time the book picks up speed and it never stops. I found myself wanting to keep reading because I had to know what was going to happen. ...more

Long Live The King

W.S. Greer

Holy cannoli!!
“Long Live The King” is everything I needed and more!!
For the love of almighty W.S. Greer just seemed to step it up!!!
With those twist and turns. I’m pretty sure you can hit with some form of whiplash or shock!! The scenes were exciting, hot and suspenseful. With no loss of the steam factor either!! Just another hit!

Good mob family book. Love Dominic. Wish there was more connection between characters. The story line is good. It takes place in St Louis. I've lived in St Louis my whole life and certain liberties were taken which bugs me. I know authors have every right and if I wasn't from St Louis I would have never known.
There isn't a whole lot of deep family connections that I would expect from a mob book. By good story line. Full of action.

I was so excited for this release! Dom has quickly become one of my faves! I love his devotion to Alannah and his crew. In this book the betrayal runs deep! I was racking my brain to think of who it could be but never in a million years did I suspect who THEY actually were. Many lives were lost due to so much selfishness. This book had me going through so many emotions ! Anger, loss, love, betrayal and so much more. This author definitely will be a one click on every release!

Wild rollercoaster ride...

So yeah I loved kingpin but this book just wow......The Heart stopping action, the chase, the secrets, the betrayals ......I have literally read this book in a couple of hours. I just couldn't put it down.
Dominic is the ultimate badass mafia boss and he definitely gives up to his image more so in this book whereas alannah is just perfect and loyal in her role as queen by dominic's side.
My heart was beating so fast trying to figure who it might be from Dom's close people

Long Live The King

Amazing, awesome, wonderful and such a enjoyable read. Thank you for the suspense as I thought it was between Tommy and Frankie who wanted Dominic to step down but my God when I heard Gloria then it was like an electric school. Any how, Judy wanted to express my outmost thanks to you for being such an incredible author.

Thank you thank you and thank you again for an amazing job.

Ding, Dong, The King Is Dead!

Dominic was a badass in "Long Live The King," dominating the story. He dominated the story so much that Allanah seemed to be an ancillary character. This did not bother me because she was a bit of (well actually totally) an airhead. Dominic could have been in love with Frankie or Tommy and it would have had the same effect. In the book's defense, I thoroughly enjoyed "Kingpin."

A good follow up from the first book. I have really enjoyed this authors work, and since I live in St. Louis I can picture all the places he references in this book. This boom has a lot of intrigued n you don't really find out whose behind things until the end and then the author throws you for a loop on one of the people.

I really loved Dominic and Alannah in Kingpin and they are just as good in this book. The writing is smooth, the story compelling. 
We rejoin Alannah at work where rumours of her relationship with Dominic are affecting her work environment. When her boss calls her out as a trophy mob wife she does the only thing she can, stands up for him. What will happen when she has no anchor in her life but Dominic? Is he really the stable rock she needs?

Well after the way book 1 ended I knew this would be packed full of excitement and suspense !!

Each time one of those chapters came up there was some kind of clue or lead on who they may be !!

Not only did I love this mob story, I thought the second book was better than the first. The energy that this book gives off from the beginning has so much intensity, that you don't want to stop reading until you know who is doing what and who's team everyone is on. It starts right up where it was left off, which makes it so much better. You didn't miss anything. You don't miss out on how the family still doesn't trust everyone fully. There are

This follows on from King Pin so you really need to read #1 to understand where Dominic and Alannah have come from and how their relationship evolved from young children to the young adults they are now including their separation.

This story centred again the Mob power games than romance so it left me a little disappointed personally but I still read and enjoyed the book.

This was an intense read. We continue on from where Kingpin leaves off.
Alannah and Dominic are moving forward with their relationship.
He’s the kingpin, and I’m his queen. We’re in this Together.

Dominic may be a young boss at the age of 27 but he definitely holds his own. When things start happening Dominic starts to prepare for what may come.

I read this book as an ARC for 2 girls who love books blog and have just reviewed the first book. Book 2 picks up straight away and leaves me questioning all the main characters.

Alannah seems to develop a lot more strength in this book and it would have been great to understand a little more in detail but none the less, it's good to see her resilient and tough streak in the world she has been submerged in.

Dominic was 27 when he took over. Even though he was young, he felt like he was ready. But not believe that. And to be completely honest after the first book I would have questioned it too. But book 2 has totally proven me wrong. I am now a huge fan of Dominic. He will stop at nothing to keep what is his. His love for Alannah is pure and true, and no one will get to her.

This story was amazing. It has everything I want from a mafia book. It had grit, turmoil, and blood. Dominic spent the last yea

Here is where I screwed up. I didn’t read too much into the blurb or anything about Long Live The King, so I was unaware I was walking into the middle of a storyline. Sorry, WS. I hope you can forgive me! I will definitely go back and read the first book in this series. However, I did not let my little slip up deter me from reading Long Live The King.

I love that this picked up straight where Kingpin left us hanging. We are left hanging somewhere between betrayal and sabotage! I couldn't wait to dive in and Long Live the King didn't disappoint, not at all. I love that throughout the story we never lose pace or action.

I could not wait to start reading this book straight after Kingpin. In my opinion this is better than the first book, and I loved how the story flawlessly continues. Dominic is now head of the mafia at age 27, and he struggles to prove himself. In true mafia style there is angst, twists and turns, suspense, violence, betrayal, bloodshed, traitors, and love. Dominic is prepared to protect Alannah no matter what happens to him. Does the rat get flushed out? Do these two have their HEA? You really ...more
