Steamy & Heart-melty w Triggers

I came into this series not having read the prior books and I never felt lost. It's definitely a bit crazy over-the-top but I very much enjoyed it. It is steamy and suspenseful with great family dynamics.

Ridge / Rafael has an assignment to do but his past (and future) crash his plans. I like Ridge's continued fifty years comments and the way he risks everything to keep Kristi safe. It's cocky, cute, and heart-melty.

It should be noted that there are several trigger

This was a riveting read, very entertaining would recommend
This was a wonderfully entertaining read that I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend highly to other readers that want a story that will hold their attention fully and that would leave you wondering what is going to happen, how and when it was very entertaining.

The Garrison brothers are very well known and also, they are involved in a very dangerous profession, as they are involved with the Mafia it is fair to say that they have to be
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Seduced by the Mafia Boss by Shayla Black is book 8 in the Forbidden Confessions Series. This is the story of Kristi and Rafael 'Ridge'. I have read the previous book but did think you could make it a standalone book if you wish to do so. Kristi attended Ridge's brother Rand wedding which lead her to meet Ridge. Ridge knows from the first spotting that she is it for him and they share a hot night. But then she tries to distance herself but he ends up kidnapping her because she has found herself ...more

Well written,action packed mafia romance with strong characters in Ridge and Kristi. It's a short and steamy read with vividly painted scenes. I was glued to the pages with all the twists and turns along the way. I loved reading their story and the extended epilogue.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

This is Book 8 in the Forbidden Confessions Series and my first read by this author. And I must say that I quite enjoyed the storyline and the characters. It is a suspenseful mafia romance between Ridge and Kristi. These two flawed souls and the unique plot make for an intriguing read. What starts out as a one night stand turns into something more. It is a steamy love story filled with drama, passion, danger, lies, secrets and violence, plus engaging secondary characters to keep the reader inter ...more

Your life is a result of the choices you make...

Ridge, the youngest of the Garrison brothers is in a dangerous high-risk position. Being involved with the Mafia could get you killed with one wrong word or decision. He was willing to take the risk for Kristi. He met her at his brother Rand's wedding. One night of intense passion with her and he knew he was ruined. She is not easily forgotten.

Wow, this was an amazing story by Shayla Black. I have been a fan of hers for years now. I loved every second of the novel! I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

Ridge is in a dangerous position right now. He is so close to figuring out the side business of the mafia he is in. He manages to be inform of the business before something unexpected happens. Kristi is searching for her cousin after she has gone missing. She looking at a casino to see if anyone had seen her when she is shocked to

Apparently Ridge is the last of the Garrison brothers-this is my first book of the series, so I had a bit of catching up to do. The story starts with action, and carries on that way throughout the book. This book was okay as a standalone but I feel like it would have added value if I had more information. Kristi Knolls is a loyal & determined, on a dangerous Las Vegas mission-she has no idea what lies ahead. She’s lucky she runs into Ridge, and here’s where it gets complicated & exciting.

When Kristi’s cousin disappears she is determined to find her, but she never expected that her search would bring her to the door of the man she spent an unforgettable evening with or the danger she would find herself in.

Ridge has been working undercover in the mafia however after he met Kristi he knew that this would be his last assignment and was trying to keep his distance until it was completed but when she reappears in his life he will do whatever is necessary to keep her safe.

This is the first book of the series that I have read and I have to admit I feel like I came in in the middle of the story. I was missing that deeper connection to it. I was being told a story that was already in progress but I wasn't experiencing it through the characters because I didn't really know them, if that makes sense. I would have gotten a lot more invested if I had been there at the beginning. I really enjoy Shayla Black's stories so I was a little disappointed but it's still a pretty ...more

What book is filled with hot, sexy scenes, lots of action and hot Garrison brothers? Why that would be Seduced by the Mafia Boss by Shayla Black, the eighth book in this author's Forbidden Confessions series. I loved this story! Ridge Garrison is undercover to take down a mafia gang. The woman he met and fell for at his brother's wedding on New Year's Eve, Kristi Knolls falls prey to this mafia's trafficking ring. There's lots happening as Ridge saves the day and gets the girl.

I need more seducing! These Forbidden Confession novels are enticing and riveting. I am utterly happy that we finally have Ridge’s story, and the journey it takes for his heart to find love. What a thrilling ride it was.

I really enjoyed the epilogue as well… getting another glimpse into Havana’s mind.

The way that Shayla writes is beyond what anyone can conjure up. Her characters flow fluidity through out and the scenes keep her readers on her toes! Perfect in all angles.

Only a great author can take something as horrid as human trafficking and put together a book that you will not be able to put down. The final Garrison brother, Ridge is up to his eye balls in taking down a mafia cartel while at the same time trying to keep the one woman who brought him o his knees safe and unharmed.
