There were always whispers about my roommate at Hillcrest Academy.

The wealthiest of the wealthy sent their kids to our boarding school, and Brooke Bennett had been at the top, though I never quite knew why. She was fun and outgoing, but she kept quiet about her family. The only things she showed me were photographs of her brothers.

I became fascinated with her second-olde

If I could give this book a hundred stars I would.
I absolutely loved it! It had me flipping the pages non stop.
Kai, oh wait! He is everything. I swooned so hard over him. Riley what a strong heroine, full of sass.
I was on the edge more times then not. This book had it all, suspense, drama, sexy times, made me laugh out loud.
Dare I say this may be my favorite Tijan book?

An Arc was kindle provided by Tijan. Thanks a million for the Arc. I loved it.

Kai can be a tad territorial, "Kai didn’t spare him a look, only ducked into an SUV two down from us. “She goes with me. That’s final.” A drunk Riley is a chatty Riley, "he was hot. He was sizzling. He was alluring. He wasn’t cute. But holy hell, there was a dimple, and my knees buckled. I’d never seen that dimple before. I scowled. “Guys shouldn’t be allowed to have dimples.” I loved this book, I fell in love with Kai and I was so proud of Riley the girl grew backbone and didn't take anyone's c ...more

Tijan has done it again!

Now I will admit Bennett Mafia took me a little bit to get into but Im glad I stayed with it because as the story went on it was amazing and I loved it.

Kai Bennett.... oh Kai. He was one scary ass mother f*@§er!
I loved the fact that Riley was on the “good” side and Kai was on the “bad” side. Riley was very conflicted about becoming closer to Kai because she knew that she had a very firm stance when it came to her morals and that due to her past she wanted to help peopl

As a fan of the CARTER REED and COLE books, I know that Tijan could write a good mafia romance novel. And her latest, BENNETT MAFIA, is no exception. Although I thought that the beginning was a you got past the first few chapters, the story really takes off. Riley is right up there as one of my fave Tijan heroines. Riley's back story was intriguing, and what I liked most about her is that she has agency. She has a mission in life which grew out of her trauma history, and was lase ...more

She goes with me. That's final

I devoured this book, for 2 days everything got neglected. Tijan really has a knack for writing Mafia, if you loved Carter Reed and Cole then you're going to die over this book. The blurb really pulled me in but it's nothing compared to what the story did.

I loved everything about Kai and Riley's story, the push and pull, the slow burn. the sexual tension just everything. Kai is an asshole but that's a given since he's in the mafia and head of the Bennett family, R

Bennett Mafia by Tijan is absolutely phenomenal! I went into this book totally blind, and I’m so glad I did. Tijan knows how to completely captivated her readers and draw them into another world.

Riley is one of those heroines that you want to see succeed. In Every Way.

She has faced so much adversity and seems at times as though she should be lost, but again and again she shows that she is a survivor.

I love that Tijan allows this character to be vulnerable and strong. You can actually feel the

Oh. My. Gosh. You guys... This book was fantastic, and to think I almost passed it up. I'm not usually one for mafia novels, but when I saw that it was written by Tijan, I jumped all over it. Everything that she writes is like pure gold to me, and this one was no different. I absolutely loved it! It was intense, suspenseful, sexy and thrilling! And just when you think you have it all figured out, the author throws out a curve ball. You will be kept guessing and on the edge of your seat all the w ...more

I know I say it a lot, and I'll keep saying it. Tijan is a masterful storyteller. She always pulls you so tight in her books that you feel like you can't breathe without them. Bennett Mafia is so much more than a mafia book, it's action and heartache with vulnerability and romance. It is two people healing each other and giving up a piece of themselves with love. A fierce and loyal love.

Riley surprised me at every turn in Bennett Mafia. One point I think of her as weak, the next I can't believe

This book is everything I wanted and more! It is dark and gritty with twists and turns that will get your heart-pumping. It also has a resilient and kickass heroine that knows how to take care of herself. Not to mention one badass mafia man that will get the blood pumping in your veins.

Bennett Mafia by Tijan is dark and gritty but also emotional. There was balance in the dark and the light much like Kai and Riley. I loved the contrast and how both characters stay true to who they are.

This was sooooooooo good

The wait is finally over. Tijan has finally written another Mafia Romance: the sub-genre that made me fall in love with her books in the first place.

It was nothing like the Carter Reed books or Cole but it was just as amazing.

I'm thrilled. I'm ecstatic. I'm happy. I'm satisfied.

PlEaSe WrItE more Mafia Romance :)

What an absolute amazing page turner! I lost a lot of sleep over this book because I didn’t want to stop reading it.
Riley has layers. She’s an ass kicking heroine but she also is just a scared woman hiding from the world.
I wanted to hate Kai so bad but he also has more to him than I first thought.
There’s so much suspense in this story and a lot of twists, action, drama and steam! A lot of steam! This is a great mafia story, and I think it would make a fantastic series! Five stars!

OMG!!!!! I loved it!!!!
Yall!!!! Once I started I could not put it down. It was a page turner like no other. Kia.... Lord where can I get one? I loved everything about that man. EVERYTHING! Yes, he had his moments that literally ripped me apart but in the end you cant help but love him.
Riley was some what of a shocker... I never expected her to be such an intriguing character.
Tijan skill as a storyteller gets better and better with each book she releases and I cannot wait to see what we get ne

I loved it guys! I have to admit, I haven't been fond of Mafia novels. But ever since The Kiss Thief, by this author 😊, I can't get enough. I love her take on it. Especially the way she shows that not everything is black and white. Prepare to fall in love with these characters. I was just so sad to see the book ending. But I loved it.

‘I hated Kai Bennett. Or I thought so. Yes, I did. I did. Buy my body didn’t.’

First and foremost let me start out by saying that Carter Reed is hands down one of my all-time favorite books, and he is one of my favorite characters, not just in Tijan’s books but in all books. But holy crap did Kai Bennett come in and nearly knock my man off the top spot!

Kai is the head of the Bennett Mafia family. He is skilled in many things and he is a man who knows what he wants and how to get it. Riley was his

I'm a huge fan of Tijan and I have to say this is her best written book to date! It's also one of my favorites. Just something about the mystery, the pain and anguish of the heroine. The stoic sexiness of the hero. The push and pull. The love and hate. It gave me all the feels! Kai is commanding, scary and hot as sin. I didn't know if I wanted to smack him in the face or climb him like a tree. Riley handles him perfectly. She doesn't let him get away with anything she's not ready to deal with. S ...more

What can I say about Bennett Mafia. Except for OH MY GOD!!
Tijan has done it again. Got me hooked from the first page. I read a chapter put it down but then I had to read more. It got to a point where I was nearly finished and my eyes said no. So the next day I had to rewind to the bit where my eyes were closing so I could remember what I read so my review was on point.
What can I say about Kai, the BOSS, the one who knows your every step and move! Kai is ruthless, Kai is just sexy all round. He

Tijan knocks it out of the part with this standalone mafia romance. As with all of her books, this author creates entertaining storylines with wonderful, unique characters. I was completely sucked in by the first page and Bennett Mafia may be one of my favorite mafia romances.

Kai was pulled into being the head of the Bennett mafia as a teenager. He comes across as cold and calculating, but there is a soft interior that so few see and I enjoyed learning more about him as his layers were peeled b

Bennett Mafia by Tijan is hands down, my favorite read in 2019.
Meet Riley Bello, Kai Bennett and his siblings and indulge in a fantastic read, a addicting story full of twists and turns.
Riley and Kai are complicated characters and their story isn't what it seems at the first look. There are so many twists and turns, The story left me breathless and wanting more.
I was captivated from chapter one and was glued to the pages. I read the book, cover to cover in one sitting, was on the edge pof my sea

I wish I could give this book 10 STARS! I loved this from the first page. A page turner that gave me a huge book hangover. I love mafia books and this is one of my absolute favorites! The twists and turns I never saw coming just left me on the edge of my seat. The characters are amazing and easy to love and hate. Riley and Kai have steamy chemistry from the first time they saw each other. Just mind blowing! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

I have fallen in love with the Bennett Mafia. This new series is full of the angst and alpha males we’ve come to love in Tijan’s stories. I truly appreciated how strong and determined Riley was no matter how broken her past was. Kai Bennett was such an amazing leader for his family...the love and loyalty he had for all of them...even when they made mistakes. Such a roller coaster of emotions, steamy encounters and family love. Pure perfection.

All I can say is holy s***. This is a must read. I hope this is a start to a new series. All the twist and turns and how fast things change. I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I felt all of Riley’s pain, sadness, love, and happiness. Another fabulous job by Tijan. Can’t wait to see what she writes next.
