Sons of Sindicato is a riveting novella size story that is just the beginning of this mafia romance series. I was captivated right from the first word until the very last word. We get a bit of their backstory, which is intriguing. Character's are compelling and I'm looking forward to reading more about them. It was wrapped up perfectly and I cannot wait for more books in this mafia world. ...more

I really don’t get on well with stories that have unbelievable relationships, or relationship development that feels too quick or forced. As such, I found this story a little bit difficult to get into and as it isn’t my sort of thing, I felt like it was lost on me. It is well written though, even if I don’t like the story being told I can appreciate the talent of the person who is telling it and Johns and Jesus write very well, their combined styles seamless.

Sons of Sindicato (Sons of Sindicato ) by Cam Johns & Sonya Jesus. This is a novella about a Crime family and their attorney. It is so very good and even though it is short it makes you feel like you have read a 400 page novel. The characters are amazing. Its the story of Braelynn Shaw who is the attorney for the Sindicato Crime Family. She just recently represented Seth Girodano and they fell in love with one another which is a big no no not only because of her profession but also because of he ...more

I had a feeling going into this book that I was going to love it and I was so right. The start of a new series has me wanting more and loving these characters. Although a quick read it had everything I would want in a mafia type story and then some. If I had not seen that this was written by two authors I would have never realized it.

I loved this novella, I really enjoyed how it was based on the wrong side of the law, with the Mafia family being the main characters.
Seth is the son of the Mafia boss, Braelynn is the criminal attorney who saved him from going to prison, and t1hey have been in a secret relationship ever since.
Seth believes his father would disapprove of her skin colour and not being Italian, whilst Braelynn is worried that sleeping with a client could cause her lose the career she'sworked so hard for.

I loved this book. I have read books by both these two authors, this one is my favorite from both. Their writing skills and attention to details not only made the story feel realistic but also made the story engaging and just a great story. This is a well developed story about Braelynn who is an attorney but also a woman who now finds herself on the other side of the law. What will happen when she has to turn to a former client, a bad boy and she is in love with to boot. As she learns there are ...more

What a captivating suspense filled, dangerous, dark,intriguing introduction in this new mafia series. This might have been a novella but it packed a punch. Braelynn Shaw is a strong, determined, fierce criminal lawyer who ends up having a secret affair with Seth a client who is also the son of the head of the Sindicato. She is risking her career and life if that information gets into the wrong hands. She is about to become partner in her firm and not everyone is happy about that.

I didnt like the book because it really only took place over a 24 hour period. I found it hard to believe that after what happened with Wexler years before, Shaw would stay in the same firm. Even if she did, I can't believe she would ever put herself in a position to be alone with him, in his office after hour. Love is all well and good but there's no way Giordano would allow her to speak to him with disrespect and worse put her hands on him. She deserved a beat down for that as nex

Sons of Sindicato is the start of an exciting new mafia series by Cam Johns and Sonya Jesus. I have loved these authors books, individually, so when they came together for a collaboration it was a given that I would be diving in asap.
This is a very short, novella length taste of what’s to come. I devoured this story in my lunch break and was left wanting more- in a good way. I would have loved to read a longer, fuller version of this story so I could immerse myself in it for longer- and

I honestly was concerned about reading this book because I normally wouldn’t consider “the mob” as my reading genre. But gosh am I glad that I picked it up. I was immediately enthralled in this suspenseful, interracial love story. I was shocked to realize that I was able to enjoy this book without a lot of mob family knowledge and found myself rooting for them in the end. There are a lot of twists and turns in the plot that will keep you so intrigued and turning the pages faster than you can rea ...more

Oh My Gosh! What a story this was and I am so, so excited for the next book now – I cannot wait! The writing for this novella was completely flawless- it’s impossible to tell (in my opinion) that it is written by two authors, their writing style complement each other perfectly. I’ve read books by both of these authors so I knew I would be in for a good read and whilst this might only be a novella it absolutely packs a punch – it’s definitely up

Sons of Sindicato by Sonya Jesus & Cam Johns

This is the first book I've read by Jesus and John's. Sons of Sindicato is a great short steamy read and will leave you wanting more.

Braelynn is a lawyer and is trying to make Partner. When things go south with one of the partners; things really go south. She isn't afraid of what's going to happen as long as she has her secret love standing behind her. The quote I chose for Braelynn is: “What are you nuts! You don’t put sauce on chicken cutlet

I have read every book written by Cam Johns...and Sons of Syndicato by Ms. Johns and Sonya Jesus is a prime example as to why that will continue...this book is an interracial love story set right in the middle of all things mafia....♥️🌼

I was pulled right in from the beginning.
Braelynn gets some great news that she can’t wait to celebrate with her secret love. But first she has to confront a demon in her life, when she does things take a scary twist.

Seth has been seeing Braelynn secretly for more than one reason. But when she needs his help his protective side comes out and the secret is no more.

Will he be able to help Braelynn? Will they be able to continue their relationship?

Overall this was a great thrilling read. My hear

Sons Of Sindicato by Sonya Jesus and Cam Johns is a dark romance story that is utterly gripping to read. This is a short story that is quick to get through however in no way does that detract from the story. I was pulled in completely by these characters from the moment I started reading. They felt so gritty and real. They really made the whole story for me.
I was familiar with one of these authors but not the other and I was surprised by just how well their writing styles seemed to combine. The

Sons of Sindicato by Sonya Jesus & Cam Johns is a romantic suspense story.
This dark tale is the start of this Mafioso series that is engrossing and captivating. This compelling read will keep the pages turning and keep you awake because you need to know how it finishes. I found myself invested in the characters and fell in love with them. Sonya and Cam as a writing pair works well.

The colour of her skin doesn’t matter in the court room but her relationship with the son of the mob could see her d

Sonya Jesus and Cam Johns are new (to me) authors so I didn't know what to expect from the novella, Sons of Sindicato. I am not a huge fan of romance, reading mostly thrillers so the idea of a dark romance mixed with crime and suspense did pique my interest. I thought the novella was good overall, it kept my interest from start to finish and it had a really strong plot and storyline. I was hoping to love the characters a bit more, but my sense of detachment did not take away from the suspense an ...more

Cam Johns and Sonya Jesus are dynamite when they team up. This short novella was jammed to the rim with all the goodies I love in a thriller romantic read. I loved how fast this read but still made me feel as if I had a full length read when I finished, and that I had it stick with me for a very long long time. I loved Braelynn, a kickbutt lawyer with her own skeletons in the closet. She has a secret that she hides well though and things may get complicated when her life collides with Seth, a ma ...more

Wow, this novella gripped me, full of heat, suspense, mob family and overall love. First time reading both authors and what a story to read.

I don't want to give too much away of this story as its better to experience first hand. All I will say is there is passion in both authors words, I loved all characters and can't wait to discover more about them.

Seth and Braelynn are amazing characters. It shows no matter the obstacles love can conquer almost anything and change people's perspective.

"Sons of Sindicato" is a novella that can be enjoyed as part of the crime family series or on its own. After you read this one, you will likely enjoy reading more about this family. This interracial romance has plot twists and suspenseful action involving the main characters of Braelynn and Seth. Braelynn is an attorney with a shadowy secret and ties to Seth, a crime boss. Their love is more complicated than the law they are both held to; the court of law and laws of the street. How it all comes ...more

Forbidden Mafia Romance. Braelynn is a defense attorney and one of her biggest clients is the Giordano Family, the heads of the Sindicato. This is how she met Seth who no only being a client is now her lover. Which is breaking the rules on so many levels.
I do need to through a trigger warning here. There are acts of attempted rape and murder as well as sexual encounters throughout this book.

This is a super quick read. While I enjoy these shorter romps I always find myself want more information. I didn’t feel too much of a connection between Seth and Shaw. They are already in a secret relationship when we meet them. This does have some action and possible triggers for some. Being it’s shorter everything moves as a faster pace. We do get to meet his siblings and father. Gia is a wonder to me. Dane seems harsher than Seth. But what is done for family and in the name of love astounds m ...more

Excellent first book in a new series. It's a page turner that is well written. Braelynn is one tough woman who has a lot of fight in her. Seth and his family are a mafia family that doesn't take anything from anyone. The love between Seth and Braelynn is evident. When everything falls into place in this story, all bets are off. It's an exciting, thrilling dive in the mafia world on another level. I'd recommend reading, it doesn't disappoint. ...more
