3.5 stars - I liked Brandon & Carly's story in the Mafia Ties series more than Nic & Anna's (books 1-3). Comparing to the previous one, there is more action and character development, mafia drama and a strong willed heroine.

I thoroughly enjoyed both characters and the fiery connection between them. Brandon DeLuca, the steely enforcer with a killer reputation who has a soft side he wasn't afraid to show his woman. And the feisty redhead Carly O'Reiley who is now taking over her dad's role as the

Brandon and Carly met in some difficult and very unconventional circumstances, with Carly turning up to be an informant for her father's biggest enemy, the mafia boss, Nic (Mafia Ties #1-3). Being Nic's right hand man and enforcer, let's just say that although immediately attracted to the readhead beauty, he was suspicious of her intentions, and her end game, so he fought their magnetism, that already created some interesting scenes in the previous books, and ended up with Carly running away for ...more

This book was in a word HOT! I mean WOW!
Ok so far in this series we know the crime boss Nic and his new wife are married after they have their drama in the first three parts.
Now in this new continuation of the series we have the crime boss Nic's enforcer Brandon ,who after being shot by the rival crime boss's daughter Carly, being sent to find and protect her.
From the previous books we know that Carly is an informant on her father after she discovers his n

While I enjoyed Nic and Anna's Mafia Ties this is so much better, Brandon and Carly are far more interesting characters and this feels more like a Mafia book whereas Nic and Anna's felt like a romance that just happened to be set around the Mafia.
We know from the previous books that Carly O'Reilly ran after shooting Brandon DeLuca, Brandon went after her determined to bring her back and while she's good and evades him for awhile he's better and when he finds her he claims her.
This is a great rea
Love this series! And Brandon is my favorite type of hero..OTT, dirty talking alpha!

In a short amount of time, I have become a huge fan of this series. I'm a Mafia Lover, and this series has all the elements to hook you since the very first book. (This is my subtle way to tell you to read the previous books, LOL).

Pursuit is a spin-off within a series and is the first of three books featuring the same couple. You do not need to read the first three books in the series before read Pursuit, however, I truly recommend you to do it. First, because well damn, you do not want to miss

Now if you read the first three books in this series (don’t worry if you haven’t, this book is about a whole different couple than the previous ones so you won’t be lost), you know who Brandon and Carly are, and if you haven’t read them what in the hell are you waiting for hmmm? Anyways Brandon I must say put Nic to shame when it comes to his alpha over the topness (yes it is a word and yes I just made it up deal with it lol) and this book whore loved every

This book continues with #2 of the plotline, between mafia man Brandon and princess Carly. The first part of their story is how he tracks her down and how they both fall for each other.
Cant wait to read more!

Brandon and Carly have such an incredibly powerful and beautifully empowering story! Theirs is a story of rising from the ashes of pain and numbness and becoming so much more than they ever dared to dream. It is one of great personal development and tremendous discoveries that shape more than just our two amazing characters. There is never an end to the beauty, love and hope that is found within the soul of a fiercely loyal and absolutely devoted friend, family member, or lover. To that end, we ...more

It's so much fun to come back to the Mafia Ties world with a new series of three novellas. Brandon and CArly's story was brewing nicely in the previous bunch, so it came as a very welcome gift that we got to see how their wild romance developed.

Brandon is an enforcer for Nic, the mafia head, so he's not shy to show his alpha male and very possessive nature. That means that he admires Carly's feisty, resourceful, smart personality. It also means he takes charge of her safety now. And in very cave

I can't tell you how happy I am that this picked up right where Nic and Anna's story left off, but focusing on Carly and Brandon. Brandon is just as alpha male as Nic was, but I think he has a softer side to him(ignore the fact that he's the enforcer for the DeLuca family LOL).

Pursuit was another fantastic, well written, and steamy read from Fiona Davenport. This story continues the Mafia Ties series, and I have to say that I loved being back with all of these characters. I especially loved being back and getting to know more about Brandon and Carly because those two definitely have a connection that just won quit. This first book for them allowed me to see and experience the two of them falling in love, and I loved getting to be there through every heated and feeling ...more

This is book 4 in the Mafia Ties series and this is Brandon and Carly’s story. If you did not read books 1-3, you will not have any clue who they are but that’s ok, this book gives enough background so you will not be lost.
Carly is an heiress in the Irish mob, the O'Reillys, and Brandon is an enforcer with the DeLuca family. Carly risked her life and gave info to secretly to the Deelucca and now her life is in danger and she has been found out. Reason why? The two families are sworn enemies! Now

I was pulled right into this short story. This is a 3 part story that is part of a bigger series so be prepared to get at least all 3 parts of this story. I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, secrets, drama, action, suspense, twists & turns and steam.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first

Fiona Davenport is back with a hot and sexy new additions to the Mafia Ties series. When we first were introduced to the feisty Carly and Brandon, we knew their romance was going to be fast, dirty and behind the scenes. And boy did they get the dirty right. This book was sexy, sweet, fun, intense, suspenseful, and will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. And just when you think you have it figured out... bam twist!

This is the beginning of Carly and Brandon's forever. We me

Brandon and Carly have a difficult relationship. Carly is trying to escape her father and Brandon works for an opposing family. Brandon is determined to make Carly his and nothing will stand in his way of making that happen. Carly wasn't too sure in the beginning but Brandon can be very persuasive. Brandon will do just about anything to make sure she stays safe and how much she means to him.

You get a glimpse of Brandon and Carly in the previous books. I was intrigued by them both especially when

The Characters:

Brandon DeLucca
Carley O’Rilley

The Story:

This was definitely a misnomer. There wasn’t much of a chase. However there was sexual tension, sexual release and vengeance.

The Random Thoughts:
