From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone romantic suspense novel

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?

Can you get anymore cliche? I’d heard that damn phrase my entire life.
Most of the time, it was when a woman was mid-orgasm—or, when I was about to take someone’s life.

Two of my favourite authors joining together to write a mafia book *bliss*

I knew it was going to be good. 
I have to honest here and say that it took me a while to write this review mostly because I had to take a moment and just get wrapped up in all things Romeo and Eden.

EVERYTHING I love about Monica and Rachel’s writing …be it the angst, the witchcraft to cast a spell of me with it’s writing and the storyline…the power to hit me hard with it’s emotions..Mafia Casanova

Wow 🤯 what a ride 🤩🤩
M.Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken together are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!
I didn't know what to expect from this story apart from the angst LOL.
Well i can say it was worth the wait 😍😍😍

Romeo is a killer.
He is an underboss of Sinacore Family.
He is a nightmare dressed like a daydream.
Only two things are important for him: the Famiglia and her, Eden.
She's always been part of his life.
They grew up together and she is the only one who doesn't fall for his lies.
He'd do anything to protect

‘The reality of our love story was that it was over before it ever had a chance to begin.’

Well, M Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken certainly came out all guns blazing with the prologue in Mafia Casanova! Wow! What a way to begin one angsty, gritty, twisty and totally addictive Mafia Romance! This first collaboration between these authors was seamless. So cohesive was the collaboration, it was hard to tell where one author ended and the other began. A remarkable joint Mafia romance f

This talented author duo delivers a mafia romance with angst, deceit, bloodshed and a love that could not be denied. Romeo is every dark mafia fantasy fulfilled. Ruthless when it comes to business but loving for the woman that owns him heart, body and soul.

Romeo is everything you want but can’t have. The only woman he has ever loved is Eden but he let her go. He stepped aside so a better man could have her. A man not tainted by blood and a soul stealing job as a mafia enforcer.

Was excited for this book, it was good. But the kind of aura that was built by author about Romeo, i dint feel the character was that good. It could be just me, i felt something was missing. The whole story was so predictable from the start. Then and Now part dint do much for me, as it was so predictable. After reading previous books of this author duo my expectations were really high. But dint work out for me. Hope you enjoy it.

I have been on Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson's mafia journeys right from the start.

And this first collaboration, Mafia Casanova? I hope this is just the start of a wonderful relationship.

We quickly met Romeo Sinacore in the previous books from each author, and my interest was piqued.

And then I was hooked right from the prologue.

There was no holding back in this tale, Eden and Romeo's tale is not hearts and flowers. It is dirty and lusty - and heartbreaking
An epic, amazing mafia that will leave you breathless and screaming Romeo! This story will blow you away and make you want to scream at Romeo and Eden! The characters, mystery, violence and deception will make this an obsession from the first word! An absolute MUST READ and a 5+ STAR RATING!! You need a Romeo in your life! Go and buy this book NOW!!

There are authors whose books you drop everything else and start reading the minute it hits your kindles! RVD is one of those! She honestly, in ever

The anticipation and wait for this story seems forever but Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson did not disappoint.
This story was about family and forgiveness, about hope and love, but most of all it was about doing the right thing and giving up a soulmate for the greater good.
These characters were easy to love but well written enough to hate. The hero becomes the villain and the villain turns into the the devil only to become the avenging angel.
Absolutely loved this story!

This book was my first experience with both authors, and I can say that at the end, it was something positive.

I'm not really into love triangles, specially when it's between brothers, but I don't know... I just had to read this one.

Romeo is a killer and a Casanova.
He not only kills for the famiglia, but he also seduces his victims for information.
I have to say that I was hooked since the prologue! That start was stellar and I looooved!

Two of my favorite authors, M. Robinson, and Rachel Van Dyken, have come together to create a Mafia Masterpiece. Mafia Casanova is the perfect storm of books. It has a love triangle, sex, betrayal and of course no mafia book would be complete without some violence. As with most of Robinson’s books there must be some major angst in the story and believe me when I say that Eden brings it. I saw Eden as being selfish and egotistical and she made the perfect main female character. I hated her throug ...more

~~~~~~~4.5 Red Stars~~~~~~

“Love your enemies for they tell you your faults.” ~Benjamin Franklin I find this particular quote fitting for Mafia Casanova by M. Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken as this book has readers questioning what if everything you love and know is one big pile of broken twisted fragments of lies, truths and pain. Do you really know your enemy? Your brother? Your lover? Your sense of worth?

I've been excited for this since I heard that these two authors were teaming up for a co-write mafia novel. I've read a couple of M Robinson books, but I've read quite a few RVD books, and her Eagle Elite series is one of my favourite ever series of books. So this new addition to this world was definitely something I wanted to get my hands on.

What happens when two mafia queens decide to join forces? We get a mindblowing, jaw-dropping and steamy as hell story! I cannot even explain how excited I was for this book. Both Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson are exceptional when it comes to creating ruthless and dangerous heroes, but Romeo Sinacore? I wasn't prepared for this guy.

Fireworks of emotions. Explosion of passion and violence. An intense, dramatic, gritty and jaw dropping story line brought to life by two of my all time favourite authors. Mafia Casanova is a mafia romance masterpiece and then some more. I expected a power packed performance when mafia romance queens M. Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken joined forces. But this story exceeded all my wildest expectations.

Let me start off by giving credit where it's due. You would NOT know that this book was written by two different authors. And while I have yet to read anything else by M. Robinson, I have read enough of Rachel's novels (especially her mafia ones), that I thought for sure I would be able to spot who wrote what (or if they only wrote a specific character), however the characters seamlessly blend together so that this is one cohesive story.

However, I.... had a lot of problems with this one. One of

Romeo & Tristian Sinacore are brothers. Eden De Rossi is the daughter of their security team and the one that might come between them. When you live within the mafia and their rules, sometimes it can get messy. Can Romeo live with what he did? Will everyone find their happily ever after or is that just a fantasy in the world with where they live? It’s better to go into this blind as I don’t want to give any spoilers. This moves fast and months go by in a few chapters which I wished f

“Wh-what?” Our gazes locked. “The blood?”

“The lipstick.” He handed me the wet wash rag, droplets of water slid down my wrist. I held it to his face in confusion.

“There may not be any on my neck right now, but I still feel it, it’s worse than the blood, you’re right, while I’m trying to seduce, they’re trying to mark, to claim me, and even though I’ve only ever belonged to one person, it feels like theft, every fucking time.”

My new mafia obsession!

I’m obsessed!! One of the best things to happen in 2020 was M. Robinson and Rachel Van Dyken co-writing a book together! Romeo and Eden’s story was very intense and angsty. I wasn’t able to put it down even though my heart kept having mini heart attacks. Romeo was one of the best villains I’ve read. He was unapologetic, yet I still loved him! Can’t wait for Juliet’s book! May 2021 can’t get here soon enough!
The Romantic Rush Blog
When the two queens of angsty and emotional mafia stories come together to write a mafia story you just KNOW it will be epic. And Rachel and Monica delivered- and then some. This is more than epic. Gritty, emotionally riveting, dark and emotionally turbulent- this is the best of these two authors in one intense and captivating package. Like all RVD and M Robinson stories, the love story is messy, violent, and hard fought- but oh so gratifying. The suspense grabs you, but the anguish, the emotion ...more

I LOVE mafia romances and this has got to be one of my top 3 this year!! SO GOOD!

Romeo is the perfect anti-hero! The villain you wanna hate but secretly love. What is it about gorgeous, cocky jerks we just can’t stay away from?

Eden is sassy, feisty, and fiery, but over time she loses her fire. Caught between two brothers, she tries to do the right thing, even if her heart wants something else.

This book had so many more layers than I expected. There was so much more at play than the blurb let on and it added so many elements you don’t see coming. And let me tell you Romeo Sinacore is one of my favorite mafia heroes.

There was back and forth between the past and present throughout the book which isn’t my favorite but it slowly explained the dynamics between everyone and why things unfolded how they did. The cameos in this book made me so excited to see beloved characters making their ap

"In the words of late and great Shakespeare,
If you prick us do we not bleed?

If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

Romeo had me very intrigued about him in Scandalous Prince so I couldn't wait to start this book. This story was so much more than I thought it would be. I didn't really know what to expect from it but it far exceeded my expectations.

Romeo and Eden's story was pure angst. It's told from both past and presents chapters, where you get to see how their relationship works, how they lose themselves and each other over the years they spend apart, and how after so much heartache a
