3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
=====================
Enzo asked me to dinner, but he’d canceled and ghosted me like a bad Tinder hook-up. A few days later, I’d caught him with an Italian super-model type.

“Like I told Dahlia. I’m a grown woman. I can sleep beside you without accidentally rolling over and impaling myself on your penis.”

This is the second book in the Bourbon Street Bad Boys Club and it is a fantastic one. I must admit I didn’t read the first book but had no problems when reading this one. It features Enzo and Shanna. After an exciting PI job Shanna ends up in Sicily for her bff, Maggie’s wedding to Enzo’s big brother, Gabe. Thing are running hot and cold for these two when there is an attempt on their life while sightseeing and then on Shanna’s life outside the wedding. Enzo escorts Shanna and the other attenda ...more

Enzo Marchionni is the hottest chef in New Orleans, the middle child in a mafia family. Shanna Isaac is a private investigator, mostly dealing with cases involving getting evidence against cheating spouses. She also has a horrible track record with men, and Enzo is among the “ones that got away” when he ghosted her.

When Shanna’s best friend asks her to be maid of honor at her wedding, she agrees, despite the fact that it means she will have to spend time around the man who dumped her. But when

Will Shanna get a second chance with the guy who “ghosted” her months ago? Shanna and Enzo met at a party, were slightly tipsy and had an awesome makeout session. When Enzo agreed to call her for a date, she never heard from him and weeks later saw him with a model.

This story has it all, romance, mystery, intrigue, mafia retaliation, and of course a HEA. Shanna and Enzo have chemistry but they have to overcome his family's mafia connections and sort out who is out to get Shanna. The Marchionni family think that no one knows their secrets and they are finding that getting out of the Mafia is not as easy as they thought. I can't wait to read the next book and find out what Marco and Niko are up to. ...more

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Kathryn M. Hearst; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Highball and Chain is the second book in the Bourbon Street Bad Boys Club series and is a great mafia romance.

The characters are intelligent, well developed, and have a history together. The storyline is well written and kept my interest from start to finish, with the Mafiosi, a meddling mom, family, friendship, corruption, danger, suspense, and a second chance for romance.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

All kinds of sassy.

I was immediately sucked into this book. Funny, sassy, a hint of sabotage.
Shanna is a PI. She and Enzo, a chef (it’s yes, chef, not sir) connected until he ghosted on her and she caught him with a OW. He does flings. She’s not a fling thing.
And who poisoned the soup?

Does Enzo deserve a second chance?
Cuz he’s got another woman drama going on as well.

I liked Shanna. She’s got her S together. Enzo not so much.
Recommend.

Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well.
I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. You'll thank me later!

The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting. Add in drama and passion and you have a good read.

Although this book has an edgy feel to it and some level of suspense it is at its core a rom com book, it is funny and lighthearted for a mafia book. I really enjoyed the lightness of it and can't wait for more.

Spectacular :)
I read this & loved it:) I like how the chapters gave both her point of view & his. You don't see that often in books. The suspense had a good build up & it worked out nicely at the end. This book is very well worth reading:) I strongly recommend it.

This book immediately brings you back with the Marchionni family and it does not disappoint. The vivid imagery brings you to Sicily and back to New Orleans. The action is fantastic and makes you feel like you are really there. I cannot wait to see where the next book is going to bring us in this saga.

The storyline is good but my problem is coming from the characters. Shanna is too “in your face” for me and Enzo is just going for hot and cold way too much

You really do need to read these books in order, in my opinion, to get the most from the stories and as this is the 2nd book bear that in mind before downloading this one. This is a well-written story with suspense, danger and drama wrapped up in an intense mob romance.

Not as good as the first book. Wondering whether the third book will be worth reading, having already had a preview of the characters involved.
