Our relationship was a sin, they said, but how can it be a sin to love so deeply?

She shouldn’t have listened to them.
Shouldn’t have left us behind.
You can’t help whom you love, and without Silvina, I didn't give a damn.

A mafia prince without a cause becomes a rebel with nothing to lose.

My brother owned an adult entertainment studio.
He wanted me nowhere near it. Thankfull

Eve (Between The Bookends)



NOTE: This coming year I have set a challenge for myself of reading one book a week that takes me out of my comfort zone. A book that may include one (or more) tropes (scenarios) that I avoid like the plague. Cheating. Older women/younger man. OW drama. Just to name a few. Nothing is off limits. I am taking a HUGE step out of the box I usually live in and charting a course into the unknown (HaHa). My reviews for these books will differ slightly from my usual as I will focus more on whether th

I have never read anything by this author before and initially, I wasn't quite sure if the writing style was for me, It took a bit of getting used to but I did get there in the end and before long I was racing through this mafia romance / forbidden love story.
So before I start I should mention that the two main characters here Silvina & Gioele are first cousins who have grown up together.
This really didn't bother me that much as it is complete

Regretfully Yours by Sunniva Dee is a very entertaining mafia romance wonderfully mixed with action, suspense and romance. The romance aspect of the story will probably be a problem for some but for me it wasn’t. I knew Sunniva Dee would put her usual spin on the story. I wasn’t disappointed.
Pretty early on I established a connection with Gioele and Silvina. Also their history and chemistry was undeniable.

I enjoyed their shared history cause it’s what shaped them and it was also an important ti

I’m not going to lie, I ain’t cut out for taboo reads and since it’s a Mafia one, (which I get a kick out of these alpha males)😂 this book I think is another first for me by this author is so surprisingly good. It’s dark and graphic (yep not me) but Gioele and Silvina their chemistry is so intense that you can’t help but feel for him and this book will draw you in and won’t be able to put it down but I did wonder if what Gioele wanted to do was even necessary, like seriously porn 😂 where the hec ...more

You know the saying, “Expect the unexpected?” Well, this should be Sunniva Dee’s tagline.

When I start reading a book, it’s common to get a general understanding of how the story will unfold. Of course, there are twists and turns along the way to keep things interesting. This author takes those curves and dips to another level. Like zoom out of this universe, flip upside down, and take off in the opposite direction.

I’m in stuck in a state of awe. How did Sunniva pull this off? She lead me down
5.0 out of 5 stars
An emotional engaging and memorable story.
Format: Kindle Edition

I love taboo/forbidden stories, it's my favorite genre of books . I have read a lot of them but very few are written with the emotional ,observant, thought-provoking and meandering ways that this author did in Regretfully Yours.

This story is very intense, thrilling and very passionate ; with well developed , magnetic, and likable characters . Sunniva Dee has created a compelling narrative of forbidden love in a maf

"Every hour of every day."

I always have mixed feelings when it comes to starting a new Sunniva Dee novel. I'm bouncing with excitement to dig-in, and at the same time, scared to turn the next page because she always throws a brain-bender at me and I never know when it's coming. She never fails to deliver, and I never finish one of her books without taking some of it with me. They are very eye-opening and thought-provoking, and many times scenes will play over and over in my mind long aft

I have never read ANYTHING like this!

And I'm a book blogger; I've read lotsa books, but NEVER anything like this! And I wager you haven't, either. I'm, like, giddy that this book was so different from the norm.

This was one of those books I was OBSESSED with. I had this sucker in my hands every chance I had, even if it was a few minutes here and there. The suspense was so gripping, and I HAD to see how it ended.

I'll admit that I wasn't sure if I would like it in the first chapter. I wasn't sure h

I'm going to share this with you, because I already shared with the author - I was worried about this book. I was concerned it would be a bit "Flowers in the Attic-esqe" with the nature of the relationship between Silvina and Gioele. I really should have known better than to doubt her.

There are themes and instances in this book which should probably carry a trigger warning - I mention that purely as a note of caution.

At first, I thought that Gioele was an arrogant, hypocritical ass. But as the s
This book is different to what I expected. There are some dark themes, but I thought that it would be darker than it was. That being said, it was a very good book, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Silvina and Gioele are cousins. They are tightly bonded and have been practically since birth. When they were younger, it was OK for them to be so close, but as they got older and that closeness went from a tight bond to true love, it started to be more and more of a problem. But when they get caug

No regrets about reading Regretfully Yours! I truly loved this newest book from the talented Sunniva Dee. Here she tackles taboo love in a close-knit Mafia family gracefully, lovingly and with exhilarating action. I was enamored with the story's young Mafia Prince, Gioele, from the get-go. He wore his emotions on his sleeve--so open and raw. It was impossible not to feel for him. The need to grab him and comfort him was resident in my head from the start. The action was edge-of-your-seat excitin ...more

You know that feeling you get when you are strapped into a roller coaster and slowly make your way up the steep slope? That moment when you are momentarily suspended above a precipitous drop that encompasses twists and turns, rises and falls? Where your heart beats with anticipation and you grip on hard, determined to enjoy every thrilling, terrifying minute? Well, Regretfully Yours is just like that. A gradual, lulling start and then, wham! A nail biting gripping story of danger, of contrasting ...more

What an amazing book... really.
It was action packed, as usual.
It was so full of love, as usual.
Nothing really surprises me anymore with this author.
In the continuation of the series of A Mafia Romance Series we have the story of Giioele and Silvina. Both from the Nascimbeni mafia familglia. Yes they are first degree cousins! But the live they share is a rare one.
Growing up together they couldn’t deny their attraction to each other.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

From the moment I met Gioele and Silvina I was absolutely enamored. The thing about Sunniva Dee’s books is that she doesn’t do ordinary. And ordinary-- Regretfully Yours is not. Gioele is fiercely passionate. A hot head, but his redeeming quality simply lies in how deeply and boldly he loves Silvina. The blurb gives you an idea of what the story is about so rather than give you a synopsis of the story, I’d rather discuss how this book made me fe

In this book we have Silvina & Gioele who are 1st cousins. Cousins who shouldn't be in love with each other. Cousins who are forbidden to be with each other, other than in a friendly way.

Gioele seems more of a college age dick. Someone who is always trying to impress others. Gioele knows he loves Silvina, although he's not sure of her level of love.

Silvina is in college working towards her degree. She knows Gioele loves her. She knows he would do anything for her. Silvina seems to have an alle

Fates help the person or city that stands between a di Nascimbeni man and his woman. In the case of Gioele and Silvina a taboo relationship that is frowned upon by such a prominent mafia family. A love and relationship that was almost like a Romeo and Juliet tragedy.

Gioele has always loved Silvina in a way that made people question him. He is trying to live his life and let her fly. When he finally can’t stand enough he storms back into her life and it triggers so many events it’

Whoa, I'm not sure what I just read here, but I liked it. I liked it alot. I never know what I'm going to get when I dive into a Sunniva book. I'm always so excited to see what she has for us, but so leery of what kind of curveball she'll throw at the characters and the reader. This book is dark, disturbing and delicious. Sunniva hits so many buttons and by the end my head was spinning. It's not what I thought it would be about. The characters are so much more. The plot is wild and unexpected. T ...more

Whew! That was quite the ride.. I haven't read many "mafia romance" novels, but this is exactly hat I would expect from one. Totally action packed from the beginning. The angst started so quickly in this book and did not let up until the very end. The forbidden love that these 2 share makes the reader feel so many things. I was seriously in love with Silvina and Gioele from the opening scene. I was not expecting for their relationship to be what it was. I thought it was a great story! I had a ha ...more

Wow this book is much more than I thought it would be, it definitely not for the fainthearted. We have Silvana and Gioele from a mafia family who live are away from home and away from the madness of the family’s business.
The big issue that seemed to be they are first cousins, and their feelings for each other are more like lovers. Silvana is trying to live her as normal as possible at college. I not judging anything, but it has never been taboo in Eng

Regretfully Yours by Sunniva Dee was my first read by this author and I found myself completely engaged in the story. This is a forbidden love story full of suspense and taboo.

Silvina and Gioele were each other’s first love. They have a history that binds them and connects them but is also what separates them. Because their love is not accepted, they decide to move forward without each other. But their love is strong and when Silvina is taken, Giole life’s is turned upside down.

Wow! Another mafia hit for Sunniva!! I loved reading Silvina and Gioele’s story. Their connection is like no other. You think everything is going to go smoothly and then BAM Sunniva throws you for a loop! This is seriously a fantastic read! It has a little bit of everything thrown into this book which makes it amazing! I can’t wait to read her next book!

The love between Silvina and Gioele started when they were young and was so strong. When they discovered as cousins their relationship was forbidden, Silvina fought them being together. When danger strikes and something happens will it tear them further apart? I am a huge fan of Gioele and his love for Silvina. Never giving up on her, he will do anything to save her. I really enjoyed their story and their determination to survive and have a HEA.

Gioele loves Silvina since they were little, she has been his whole world. Their love is taboo in 27 states as she points out to him several times, but the heart wants what the heart wants. Nobody loves a person as Gioele loves Silvina. Throw in the mafia as a theme in the book, dang I am sold.

Dee writes an emotionally charged book that will make you rethink your beliefs. I hope Dee writes more in the mafia series as I will be reading it.

This story is so beautiful.

It was passionate, It was dramatic, and I loved every second of it.

Just when I thought Isaias could not be beat, in comes Gioele and his ruggedness and his heart of Gold (and for Silvina), and my heart completely swooned for him.

I loved everything about this novel. I was not bored reading it at all, and when life wasn't interfering, I was glued to this book.

Regretfully yours is a story that will grip you from beginning to end. It was mafia romance at its finest, and

Just wow , these two Gioele and Silvina do not have it easy their love started when they were young and their families did not approve so they tried to stay away from each other but then she is put in harm's way and we all know how alpha men are when their lives are put in a bad place .
The action, suspense and the love in this book make it so worth the read.

This book certainly had me on my toes. Im not sure where to start. It was different. Some parts were funny,some sweet,and some full of action. I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm glad for the twists and turns, because I wasn't sure how I felt about the cousin thing. overall, I really liked it. I wanted to keep reading,to see how it all played out. Another unique Sunniva Dee book!

Have you seen that episode of X-Files where they find the sister-auntie-mother under the bed in a drawer and she's got no limbs cos of all the incest? That IS NOT RELATED TO THIS BOOK IN ANYWAY. Because first cousins is not incest. In fact it was encouraged and sometimes enforced only 100 years ago to keep all the dosh in the fam. Yup.

Mafia romance explosion!
This story will send you reeling! Sunniva Dee did her job fantastically as an author. I got terribly caught up in the book, and my emotions got the better of me. I'll be honest I'm not usually a violent person, but this mafia tale had me so stressed out, my blood pressure sky rocketed, and I was out for blood. M U R D E R!!!!! I wanted violent vengeance more than the the main character, Gioele. Get ready for a wild ride!
