Finally, the book of Mary, I hope it is with Dominic.

Waiting for publication date.

Ps: I just read the synopsis and I did not like it, I hate the love triangles, so I hope with all my heart that Dom be the chosen.

I have a heart."

Hmmm... Where should I start???
First of all, Maria's turn, as it was Luca's as well, was one of my most anticipated books of this series, and now, I can say that I'm a little bit disappointed...
Who knows, maybe the second part will redeem me, but at this moment, I can't be anything more than plain... disappointed!!!!

Quite frankly I am confused.
I have been waiting for this book for such a long time it seems like forever. And while I am not fully disappointed, I was expecting more from Maria. I love her character a lot. She's amazingly created as a feminist figure with many issues which adds to each book she appears in. However, I knew from the start that I won't enjoy the book fully as it was a triangle thing, and if there is one thing I can't stand is when two guys are fighting for one girl. It seems too

Love triangles never work for Sarah. It makes no sense to me the character that ends up living in the end of the book because they make no sense as a couple. All the angst was unnecessary and it’s so painful to me to say this but this was my last book in the series, it was awful. I felt that the one that died was the one she chose but as he is dead, she ends with the other one. I’m sorry Sarah I LOVED your other books but this one wasn’t for me

Anti climactic and pretty disappointing. Not much happened in this book, so I’m hoping the next one has a bit more for us :/

I hate to say it but I was disappointed with this book. I love this series and have enjoyed Maria’s character in all the other books and was really looking forward to her story. This book was only 169 pages. For the amount of time it appeared to take to write this book I was expecting there to be more to it. The relationships Maria had with both Kayne and Dom lacked depth and there really wasn’t time in the 169 pages for a relationship to develop between one male character let alone two. Maria ...more

It was too rush

I rated a 2 star because it was too rushed and there is not enough content with Maria's relationship between Kayne and especially with Dominic. Also we do get a recap once again from her first meetimg with Kayne amd Dominic. We all already know when she first meets both of them. The other thing is Dominic rarely had any time with Maria and fir that matter in the book and towards the end all of a sudden he is expressing feelings he has for her. It does not make sense since they

I will be honest here - this book just didn’t do for me! Maria was one of my favourite characters in Sarah Brianne’s Made Men series. So so disappointed in this one! To think that the author took nine months to publish this book!! Gah! I felt like the author was just talking rather than write the book, hmmm how do I put it? The narrative was certainly lacking and the character development was pretty sad. Not one of Sarah’s best book, all the more sad because this was one of the most anticipated ...more

Who is this Maria? Where did the Maria from previous books go? Sarah please write your books like you used to. I would rather wait over a year for a great book than to read something that feels fragmented. Chapters are so short with so little detail that they feel incomplete. I still don’t understand how Kayne nor Maria claim to love one another when their scenes are short and only a few things are said between them. I hate to say this because I love Sarah’s writing from Nero to Lucca, but the ...more
I'm putting this on hold @ 73%. I'm not sure I like the Maria we've got here. The something that made her awesome is just not present. Maybe its because the Maria in previous books was this hard assed psycho who had no problem torturing anyone but here we get a mushy Maria who can't make up her mind. Also, I found that the fact that everyone though Maria was gay because she never expressed interest in any guys off-putting. She didn't come off as the type of girl who would follow the rules when ...more

So I was...eager for this book to be released, because it's fucking Maria.
But hell, a fucking love triangle...again?
Just...why couldn't we have had Dominic and be done with it? He's the only one we know & like anyway.
Whatever. I give up.

The day finally arrived for me to read it and to say I was slightly disappointed today...would be totally correct.

It felt too much like Chloe's book as in:
1. too fucking short.
Hell, it's got even less pages than Chloe did! So yes, while reading it, it felt

Very Disappointing!!!!

The worst and most disappointing book in the series!!! Hate the ending!!! Not reading the next book, as I’m not interested anymore.

Can I say I'm hurt

I now read it a second time with common sense,
this story was already known to me how it would end
Which was a mistake waiting for a moment of excitement

There's nothing to do with the author's writing style it's brilliant
But this book did not live up to my expectations
I was expecting something similar to the Lucca book
All the time the action is going on as I'm used to this series but that wasn't enough for me

Was so sad at just how short this book was.
I think it should of been stated as a novella (book 6.5) in the series.
It felt so rushed and i just didnt see no relationship build up with either Kayne or Dominic.
There was none of the ballsy, takes no sh*t, Maria, that was shown in the other books in the series and overall it just all fell flat for me.

I was happy who survived at the end, though!

Like seriously, I gave 2 stars because I like the author but seriously that's me being over the top generous.

Maria who was supposed to be badass turned lameass in the book. All through the book she went on and on how she didn't want to disappoint anyone. She didn't have a backbone, and had the guts to say that she deserves to have power. Well hell then show us what you got babe... and if you could do it without whining that would be great!!!

Eh it was not great

This was not one of my favorite. It was a really slow build up. Just when the book was getting good it was over. I hate cliffhangers and this was one.

The 3 Star Are not for the story but the presentation.
I love this series but it should have been a novella, or a 7.5 book and Dominic 8 I had to check if I was really at 80% so quickly.
It was unfair, not even a cliff hanger.
But had the above been stated.
5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Maria, Maria-you make me crave your story. I want to know more. I NEED more like right now. I knew it was ending in a cliffhanger yet I was still not prepared for it. It's like Chloe's book all over again yet worse because I didn't wait until the next book came out to read it. Ahhhh, just thinking about the wait is already killing me!!!

Maria is a badass mafia princess-although she doesn't like to be called that-who doesn't form any attachments to men or feel anything towards them but

OK. So where should I start?

Im biased. I love this series with a passion and everything this author writes is everything

First, Sarah warned us that this book was going to be short like Chloe’s and the next one will have more like Lucca’s did. So I don’t mind that.

I truly enjoyed being inside Maria’s psycho brain and it was a wild ride. She was not only drop dead gorgeous but she was incredibly cunning and funny as hell too. Maria is basically my spirit animal. I don’t want to spoiled anything

Disappointing Kyane &Dom along with Maria

Note:This can be read as standalone, but its better understood if you read other book in the series. It ends with cliffhanger.

I had been waiting for this book, even before Drago & Angle was realized. Maria had been one of the intriguing characters in all the previous books. I got more intrigued with Maria and Dominic after Drago. From the time I read the blurb and got to know about Kayne, I was waiting for this. Maria was all as I expected, to an

Loved this quick read into the mind of Maria. I have been intrigued by her since the first Made Men book Nero. She is strong and loyal to her family and believes she is heartless. This is proved wrong when meeting two different men - Dominic and Kanye.
One is tied to her mafia family while the other is “normal”. Or So so we think. Will she get to choose?
I loved the interactions with her family. Especially those with Lucca -who she is one of the few that can go toe to toe with the boogie man. And

Hard to finish

I feel like I already read most of this book already. I kept getting bored with it. I wanted to finish it because I loved her other books but this one seems a regurgitated version of a previous one. Glad it was KU. I hate to give bad reviews but this one is a no for me.
