The beginning literally went off with a BANG changing Jonah's life within a blink of an eye, making him go from happiness to floundering in profound loss in moments, making me sit up, pay attention, then it ebbed off for a bit, I was hoping it would go more into the mafia side of things, then the feels started hitting me and before I knew it I’d reached the end, wanting, needing, craving, screaming for more!

This would've been a 1 star if not for that cute epilogue🙄

I'm sad bc this didn't live up to the hype i had in my head. It was one of my most anticipated books and i even re-read the first book to refresh my memory. I always had a soft spot for Jonah but this whole storyline was not my favourite.

From his murdered fiance to meeting the h in the morgue when he was saying goodbye to that same dead fiance then blaming himself for her death.🙄
and his relationship with the h if i can call it that was

I have thoughts ...

My thoughts are a bit jumbled about this story. Most of them are a me thing, which is why I have hesitated to do a full review other than just a rating.

I wanted more. I needed more. I expected more. This story was too superficial for my liking. Tijan is not the kind of author to bog down her stories with too much fleshed out details about any circumstance happening in her stories, for the most part, and I accept that from her as an author and flow with it because I love how

If you've read Bennet Mafia by Tijan, then you would be familiar with Jonah Bennet, the most sweet and sane one in the family. Even though his brothers are a part of the mafia world and run it with iron fists, Jonah wanted nothing to do with that side of the buisness so he chose to become a doctor. His entire life was separated from his family's but that changed the day his fiance was unexpectedly shot in broad daylight to get revenge on the Bennetts.

This is a great introduction not only to this series, but to Tijan's amazing talent. It honestly just gives you brief glimpse into her writing prowess and how she can easily pull readers into her stories.

I did not read the first book in this series and you don't have to at all. Tijan gives you just enough to piece things together without taking away from the main characters in this story.

Jonah is one of four siblings in the Bennett family. And they are extremely tight; two have stayed in the fam

Jonah Bennett was a compelling tale that had me hooked until the end. I've loved Tijan's mafia books and this one was no exception. Although a novella, we got a story filled with action, drama, suspense, violence, emotion and steam. It was a fast paced, well written tale and as there as so much happening in such a short space of time Jonah and Carson attraction and relationship felt intense and instant. I loved that the rest of the family appeared in the tale and I enjoyed seeing the dynamics be ...more

Anytime I can get my hands on a Tijan book, I'm all in. And the Bennett Mafia? Count me triple in. I am fascinated with the Bennett family and loved the peek we got inside from Carson's outside introduction. Jonah is exactly the man I wanted him to be and loved the inner turmoil between wanting to do "good" and keeping everyone he cared about "safe" versus listening to his heart and cultivating friendships, lovers...those normal connections we make every single day.

Tijan, Bennett Mafia, and 1001 Dark Nights?! Yes please. Jonah Bennett is quite a compelling novella- and a great taste of what I love about the Bennett Mafia world. Jonah had all of the contrasts I like about Tijan mafia men- his way of life, his heart, relationships, his duty. Since it's a short and sweet taste, Tijan keeps the drama high and fast, as is the romance- it's a lot to pack in, and really I just wanted even more. A great taste for those who've yet to dive into the Bennett world, an ...more

Jonah Bennett’s story is full of action and twists from start to finish! I was happy to be back into the warm comfort of the Bennett’s and it’s as crazy as expected I mean it’s the Bennetts!

Jonah isn’t like is family but the world comes calling and Jonah had some tough choices to make! When an unexpected meeting and even more unexpected coincidence Jonah jumps into action and things will never be the same for him again!

This novella is jam packed with heat and I mean HOT AS HECK HEAT! Jonah may

Love those Bennetts!​ Three hunky brothers and one sweet sister in a mafia family full of danger and intrigue. This story features youngest brother Jonah, the one that is out of the family business. He’s a doctor and living without the danger that surrounds his older brothers Kai and Tanner. At least that’s what everyone wanted.

Sometimes there are just books you didn’t know you needed in your life until you finished reading them, and this is one of those books! This book was raw, emotional, so heart wrenching. Everything in this book is built on your emotions. Jonah is my favorite Bennett brother.

I absolutely love Tijan and her books and this is the same. I was so captivated with how consuming it was. There was steam, there were tears, there was smiles. This book will pull you in, wrap around your heart and take hold.

This was a suspenseful read that really had me on the edge of my seat from the start of the story to the end of the book. The start of the story really set the scene for the book and it really made me wonder what was going to happen. The story continued to get better and better making it impossible to put down.

The heroine of the story Carson i really enjoyed and found her to be really interesting.

Jonah Bennett by Tijan is set in the Bennet Mafia world and is a great introduction to new Tijan readers and a treat for her current readers. Jonah is not part of the family business. He wants to saves lives, but when tragedy hits, his life is turned upside down. Enter Carson who is a gamechanger for him. I loved their chemistry and connection. Their journey had a bit of suspense and a whole lot of steaminess and I loved it.

Happy reading!

I was interested and had high expectations. I thought about his loss and his struggle to get back to his life and being a mfia member. All I had a flat plot and unbelievable connection between the main couple. The way they met and started their connection didn't make sense at all . How can you move from unknown to known and be fully committed after short time , I didn't understand . According to the blurb , he was in pain and trying to get over his loss but he couldn't move on.

Jonah Bennett is a novella in the Bennett Mafia series and also part of the 1001 Dark Nights collection. I have not read the first book but I will be going back to read it, You do not have to read it to read this book. This book starts off with a bang, Jonah Bennett is trying to live a normal life and isn't involved in the families mafia world, however that all changes when a hitman kills his fiance. Carson is an assistant medical examiner when the Bennett family come crashing into her lives.

Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary.

I was provided an ARC via the author, all opinions are my own.

I really love the 1001 Dark Nights novellas, they give you a glimpse into a series or a world and author has created. In this case we get Jonah Bennett's story. This novella is a standalone, but if you want really understand who Kai is or how the Bennett Mafia operates, give Bennett Mafia a read. I would say you could read this before or after. This also has ties to The Not-Outcast, but you don't need to read that to really understand

Explosive, on the edge of your seat romance with a twist. This was so full of angst, danger, heat, heart and a emotional journey when a innocent young girl’s life is taken for revenge. Taken away in the blink of an eye by a ghost. Be forewarned once you start you won’t want to stop reading. This book will captivate you with all its twists and turns.

Jonah Bennett brings us back to the Bennett family, if you have read Tijan’s Bennett Mafia Series. Book reads as an interconnected standalone. This novella had me captivated and intrigued about where Tijan was taking us this time. I loved getting a better look into the family and their dynamic. Jonah has this overwhelming need to protect Carson. Putting her first in ways he never has anyone else. Carson- man I loved her honesty, feistiness, and soul.

I love how she make connections with her previous books and to see some of those characters were amazing!
Jonah’s story was short but at the same time really intense, knowing a bit of his background because of Bennett Mafia enabled Tijan to dive in his present without much of clarification of what his family business did to him growing up and see him suffering, drowning in guilt and denying his upbringing wa

Jonah Bennett – A Bennett Mafia Novella

If you haven’t read Bennett Mafia yet and plan to, go read that first. Jonah’s story was supposedly written to be a standalone, however, there are a few references, and appearances, to the main and side characters in Bennett Mafia that are spoilers. Some readers may not mind, but if you’re someone that would rather read with the best experience, then I highly suggest you read Bennett Mafia first and then Jonah’s story.

This novella is so good I wish it was much longer. I read Kai's story a while ago and really enjoyed it but I hadn't felt like I needed more of the Bennett's. Well, I was very wrong. Jonah's story is a perfect addition to the Bennett family and now I want more of them.

If you know Tijan's writing and her books then you are probably a one-clicker like me. If she writes it I want to read it. She managed to fit a lot of time into a short book and you aren't left feeling like pieces are missing or t
