This is one of those books that really drew me in. I first have to say that it is a dark romance and has some triggers. If that bothers you then this is not the book for you. I mean there were times when I was like wth but I loved every moment of it.

Nick is the owner to a club called Odyssey and he is also part of the mafia. He loves his club and keeps a strict policy of what happens there stays there. Then one night he sees a girl who looks lost and he asks her what she is doing there and she t

*New to me author

I LOVED this story! Tease Me is a mafia story but a "normal" kidnap and killing story. This is a hidden mafia story that doesn't wrap around so much around it. Nick is the mafia with his family. But his family has a business outside that too. The Dark Odyssey is that business. When Mia comes in to get a waitress job Nick takes an interest in her. Neither Nick or Mia realize that their lives are so intertwined.

The heat, intrigue, and mystery draw you right in from the very first

I liked the setup here. Heroine needs money to pay off brother's debt & father's medical bills, works for mob boss.

I didn't see the twist at the end coming, so that was fun, too.

But after her initial bravery, our heroine was kind of lame. If she'd had more (any) agency in the second half of the book, I would have given this a much higher rating, but she becomes a complete pawn/object, and that's not my jam.

Also, after reading Asher Black and friends, who are all about security and guarding thems

Mafia and kink

The ultimate combination. Good read with all my go to elements. The chemistry between the two was hot! Very hot. It got to be a smut fest for awhile, but then the plot progressed.

Reading the next for sure

HOLY HELL! Tease Me was a deliciously dark read that I couldn't get enough of. Nick's family is mafia, and when Mia comes in to apply for a waitress job at his club, the Dark Odyssey, she catches her eye, which starts them on one hell of a journey, filled with next level sexiness. The intense chemistry seriously tried to short circuit my kindle while reading, and the point when it won't be denied?! OMG I needed the air conditioning set to the highest level. There's not just the sexiness, there a ...more

I really enjoyed this book and I thought it was a great way to kick off this series. This book offers up plenty of sizzling heat, excitement, suspense, powerful emotions, tension and drama. Nick and Mia made a great couple. They had intense chemistry and shared a very strong attraction. There is a compelling cast of secondary characters hold a wealth of potential for future books in this series. The story is lush and engaging with its intoxicating blend of gritty mafia and steamy kink. Just as a ...more

I'm not too sure how I feel about this one. I liked it, the premise and I liked the balance between actual plot and drama and the growing romance.

However, some of it felt a bit off. It starts off hot. The job interview was something else and the power and authority Nick has over Mia was just captivating to read. But then he calls her 'Angel Doll' and that threw me. Its a really wierd pet name. Like, try hard.

The running drama with their respective families was gripping. Some of them are real p

It’s something I mustn’t have because this isn’t a fairytale. There is no happily ever after in a business relationship like ours. He’s not the prince and I’m far from being a princess.

Mia Chase is desperate. A Harvard Law School grad who can't find a job to save her life...literally!  She needs money to pay off the drug lord for her big brother's debt, so her last resort is a "personal waitress" job for Nick Giordano at his sex club, The Dark Odyssey.  Can she keep her dignity while losing

This is a great beginning to this series. This is also my first book by this author, and she had me reeled in hook, line, and sinker. In this book we get excitement, mystery, action, and lets not forget the panty melting times.
Our hero Nick is a short tempered "accountant" who many forget is smarter than they think. He is the youngest brother in the Giordano family, but he has so much going for him. He is known for his short fuse, and is a bit of a ladies man. Mia our heroine is as beautiful as

Engrossing story

I really got into the story. While it wasn’t the most developed, it was still very enjoyable. What I struggled with was the writing. So many sentences are immediately repeated and it drove me crazy. Now, I’m all for different styles to reflect different people talking/thinking, but every character did it. It made it where I just started speed reading because I really did want to read it through, despite it being predictable, but couldn’t handle the repetitiousness any longer. I t

This book was everything and more!! It has anything and everything you want and need from a dark romance. It had me so captured I felt every emotion reading this. Mia is such a strong hearted heroine with strong family values and always puts their needs before herself. Nickoli is a guy that doesn’t realise he can love again until Mia. They’re relationship starts off with a contract but then feelings get involved, will they get their HEA? If you want a book that has it all then this is perfect, i ...more

A definite must read

Wow that was an intense emotional rollercoaster ride. I love Nick and Mia’s story. I can believe I had this series in my want to read list for so long and just decided to read it. I love Nick’s alpha male bad boy vibe. So freaking hot. Mia though submissive she totally held her own. Her brother got her family knee deep in financial problems and her love for her dad and her niece brought her to Nick. So glad she was a strong female lead. A definite must read. If you love a sex

Initial Thoughts: enjoyed this mafia romance. Nick and Mia has great chemistry & a good storyline for the most part. I feel like some of the revelations could have happened sooner as it all seemed to wrap up a bit quickly at the end after a bunch of time passed. It felt a little jumpy with the time lapse transitions, too. Idk I enjoyed reading this, but I feel like Shelly Bell’s Benediction series is just so much better in terms of a sex club backdrop. Of course this novel focused more

Mia and Nick

Mia is desperate for money to pay off a loan shark threatening her family because of her brother. She applies for a job at The Dark Odyssey sex club. She meets Nick , pone of the owners who is the devil to her angel, but thoroughly mesmerized with her.

The two share a lot of passionate moments with Mia being unsure if this is just “the job” or something more. Nick admits it is something more but tries to stop seeing her since anything (one) he lives is a target for his rivals.

What a disappointment DNF at 59%

The whole thing went downhill from the start. Relationships didn't develop between main or minor characters. It's hard to say whether Mia or Nick made the poorest decisions. They were okay in the beginning and I expected that they would grow throughout the story. Not so much.

I didn’t like ANY of the characters by the time that I was halfway through the book. All of the minor players were flat. Nick and Mia left me feeling little more than annoyed.
