I'm so sorry for not seeing this question sooner. Luciano is featured to some extent in all the Russo books. In 'Shame' he has a large part as the antagonist - the bad guy - but the book revolves around Carmen and Lucas. The set up is a bit unusual, though, but I don't want to spoil anything here. :)
'Capo' is Luciano's own book about how he meets Chloe and how they find their HEA.
Thank you for asking, and again, I'm so sorry that I never saw this question until now. (less)

An amazing, amazing conclusion to this fabulous series. I'm just a little sad that it's all over.

I thought I'd read just a couple of chapters of this last night. Ha! Big mistake, once picked up and started I just didn't want to put this book down. Nicolina Martin has created such a sinister, terrifying man in Luciano Salvatore and yet somehow I still wanted him to get his HEA with Chloe.

This couple have intense chemistry, a passion that is scorching hot and violently explosive. I thought Ch

I am not sure how she did it but this author brought the devil to his knees. By the devil, I mean Luciano Salvatore. From the very first book, there was something about this character that I wanted to know more about. Was he repugnant and morally bankrupt so much of this series? ABSOLUTELY. However, there would just be little glimpses that showed there was more at work here. I wanted his book, but I have to say, I was a little worried that there would be no way that this author could come up wit ...more

OMG what a rollercoaster, I'm not even sure how to feel at the moment as I have been put through every emotion possible reading this book, Ive cried, been extremely angry, excited, happy and the rest lol
After being badly beaten by the Russo's notorious hitman, Chloe chooses to face the infamous Luciano Salvatore to decide her own fate, this seriously backfires and she suffers at Salvatore's hands, by being humiliated and degraded, at this point all I wanted was to crawl into the book and save he

Besides the hero being an abusive almost rapist; the story was all over the place..
The characters were undeveloped and again all over the place. But do not forget our heroine was beaten, starved and practically raped by hero.. way too dark for me

Gritty, Brutal and Fabulous!!

If you are jumping into this series, I truly recommend you start at the beginning … This story is interwoven with the previous adding to your enjoyment if you recognize “action” from the other stories.

Luciano Salvatore is a monster. Brutally beaten by Salvatore’s nephew, Chloe confronts “Luci”. Bad mistake. Now she is “his” to do as he wishes. Her continued defiance intrigues and attracts the monster. Amazing depth of characters, and glimpses of the possibility that

i didn't give more stars because i can't forget what Salvatore did to Carmen in "shame"book...
here he is way better but i still have that book in mind and it was really hard for me liking him,
i kept reading because here with Chloe he wasn't like that,
he still did stuffs i'm against at first but i'm glad he didn't abuse her.
With this being favorite books in this series are the first 2, the third was a little meh due all the stuffs Salvatore did,and this one was an ok

Capo is definitely a dark read. Luciano is a true sadist, and I had a hard time reconciling what he did to Chloe in Capo with building a lasting relationship. At the end of this book, I was unsure if she was staying with him through her own desires or because she’d been manipulated into believing that there could be no other fate for her. Martin depicts the difficulties and challenges of a mafia lifestyle well, yet the unrelenting grimness of this story left me feeling cold.

Sixth and final chapter of Russo Saga, what a blast……
This was Luciano “Luci” Salvatore and Chloe’s story and it was everything I have come to expect from this amazing author the way she writes anything to do with the Mafia has been brutal, sexually charged, , love and living hard and this book most definitely had it all and was an amazing conclusion to the Russo family although I can hope in the final chapter that we might see some of the characters possibly reappearing if Angela’s story is writ

Chloe, beaten viciously by Christian, taken and kept by Luciano to be abused even more. Luci decided that Chloe will make a slave and submissive for himself but she proves to be more than he could have

Dangerous man

This is a story about two characters male, and female, and their love -hate relationship between them . The pain of their past has shaped them as adults. Now, they are deadly force against the world. Fight for all they while dear & Near. I love everything about this book.

This book made my head spin in a really good way. Luciano is the capo and no one defies him and gets away with it. No one except the beautiful Chloe who is also a headstrong tornado that crashed into his world unexpectedly. These two are dynamite together. Dark, violent, sexy, twisted and delicious.
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Why Not 5 Stars? The epilogue... it did not answer my questions about Luciano and Chole. I did not know the details on their future to close the book. I was unsatisfied, with lingering questions.

This is the 6th book in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone. Chloe is finally at a good spot in her life and would do anything for her friends. Luciano is head of the Russo family and is shocked when Chloe comes to his home and threaten him. He finds Chloe’s strength fascinating and plans to break her but what will happen when he falls for her? Can he keep her safe from his enemies? Fast-paced action packed read with intense chemistry and steam. I was hooked from beginning to end. I r ...more

This was a hard book to finish... The violence Chloe experiences at Salvatores hands had me putting this book down more than once, but I persevered. They both eventually find their happy ending with a bit of redemption for Sal's part. Chloe frustrated me by putting herself in the position she did. I hated Sal. An okay read once I overlooked the violence.

He’s Luciano Salvatore, he’s the Capo. Chloe crashes into his world and everything goes crazy. You should hate him, you should despise this cruel soulless beast. He’s a car crash that makes you want to watch and hate yourself for being dragged into his filthy world but there is something.....
The authors words are magic, poetry in motion, hatred and love in equal amounts, brings this whole story on a roller coaster, twisting and turning, making yourself turn that page. Ducking and diving, hate an

I loved every one of these books in this series but this was my favorite of all.

I honestly never thought I could ever come to like Luciano Salvatore or care about him in any way other than hatred. Throughout the whole series, I really don't think he had any redeeming qualities. He is the boss of the Salvatore mob family so, of course, he is ruthless and brutal as befitting a boss. And he is in this, his story, just as cruel, heartless and brutal as always. I've got to throw this in here because

I am a huge fan/admirer of this very talented Swedish writer. Ms Martin suddenly appeared on the erotic/romance genre around a year or so ago with a real winner and I have been a follower of her work ever since. She has been extremely prolific and yet manages to keep it real, compelling and, more importantly, different. This is the sixth and final chapter in the Russo Saga a veritable tour de force mafia family story. Although this particular genre (Russian/Italian Mafia) appears to be in fashio ...more

A fantastic (and dark) mafia romance that will have you on the edge of your seat!

First and foremost, this amazingly dark mafia romance is not a rainbows and chocolate sprinkles kind of romance. There will be triggers for some - there is captivity, cruel treatment, a close call of assault and more. If this bothers you, I would advise not to venture into this read. If you aren’t bothered, then get comfortable because once you start reading you won’t be able to stop.

Yikes! Luciano was a true sadist and reveled in the pain he inflicted wherever he went. The opening scene where he was introduced to the storyline was kind of creepy and dark, revealing his heartless persona that was violent, raw, and gritty. Seemingly unredeemable, yet a huge hook to see how this storyline would play out with Chloe.
I'm not a fan of graphic, multiple play by plays of the main character with other women even if he hasn't met the main female lead yet. This dark tale had

Final chapter in the Russo Saga and the darkest story

Capo is the sixth and final book in the Russo Saga series by Nicolina Martin and it is one heck of a way to end things. This is the story of Chloe and Luciano Salvatore and be very warned that this is definitely a dark and violent story. But if you decide to proceed then you will end up reading a story that is also very intricately woven with an outrageous story-line and the most fascinating characters that I have read in a while that is well

This is a magnificent, extremely intense dark mafia romance & I definitely enjoyed reading it. The plot is suspenseful, well-written & intriguing with outstanding scene descriptions & good world building. The main characters are well-developed although some of them are realistically emotional flawed & exhibit devious intentions in order to get their goal while another character tries to adjust in a new & unfamiliar world. There is some good support from the secondary characters.

Gut wrenching and Heartbreaking!

Capo is a phenomenal but gut wrenching and heartbreaking book. Luciano and Chloe's story took me on one intense emotional rollercoaster ride. Their story will gut you and rip your heart to shreds only to have the pieces mended together very slowly.

Chloe is a very strong willed and feisty woman who has met her match with Luciano. Luciano is the exact definition of the ultimate alpha male (who happens to also be the Mob boss). He's cruel, angry, mean, brutal and sa

OK, I've been waiting for Luci's story from the very beginning, and it was worth the wait. It was pretty much everything that I would've ever wanted to read, and was so much everything that I needed.

I am going to come right out and say that I have totally hated Luci. And this isn't exactly a redemption story for Luci. He's pretty sure that he doesn't need to be redeemed. He starts out the book sorta happy with who he is, maybe.

Then we have Chloe, who helped her friend get away from Christian,

by sewsummore

There is a fine line between pleasure and pain and Chloe has experienced both with Luciano Salvatore, mob boss and tormentor. He wanted to break her but she would not give in, when they reached a stalemate he had to try a different way, but again she never gave in. He was a dark, sadistic lover and killer, Chloe was unlike any woman he had met before and in the end she completed him and the pain went away. This book is not for the faint of heart, he could

I had this series book set for some time. I have read the others but couldn't bring myself to read this final instalment. I really didn't like Luci and still don't to be honest. I appreciate these are dark romances and I love them, but Luciano (aka Luci or Salvatore) is too far gone to the dark side. What he did to the mother of his child in a previous book, then what he does here to Chloe is too much. What woman would fall in love with a man who whips them to an inch of their life?!!

Looking back over the whole series, I have to say Ms Martin turned up the voltage bit by bit with every book. Now this one is the culmination of all the fear, apprehension of, or at least understandably careful distance, even by family members, from Luciano Salvatore. Capo of the Salvatore/Russo family.
He has earned his reputation as a ruthless manipulator and killer by keeping a cruel, deadly reign over family, business acquaintances and especially enemies.

Luciano does VISCIOUS so well. No wonder he is the Capo! But behind every man is a woman who can bring him to his knees. I really didn't find that in this book although Luciano begins to creep into my heart and make me see him in a different light. Chloe is SUPERB! She proved that this BAD as GOOD GIRL has what it takes to hang with the CAPO. She is one TOUGH broad and knows that. These characters came through with the MAGNIFICENT writing.
