"Let me go," I gasp, "let me the hell go."
His grasp tightens.
I reach over to try to pry his fingers off but he doesn’t release me. He continues to stare at my face like he’s unable to tear his gaze away.
My heart slams into my rib cage. My blood thumps so loudly in my ears I think I am going to faint.
"Please, don't do this."

Luca Sovrano. One of the Sovrano Seven.

Mafia Obsession by L.Steele is the 7th book in the Arranged Marriage Series. All I can say is Holy Cow! How did you trick me again woman!!! I mean…fool me once shame on you, but fool me twice…shame on me! And you got me twice! Same Series, Same scenario, same reaction! My heart and soul is wrapped up so tight with these guys. I can’t handle it when there is heartbreak, but when they find their woman…their true love…their whole world…I melt. It’s like magic. L. Steele your writing is just so magi ...more

* Thank you to Socialbutterflypr and to author for giving me this arc. *

This book had me worried a few times but obviously I worried for nothing.
It was an addicting story and I can’t seem to get enough of the Sovranos.

Luca Sovrano, the Capo, I liked from previous books already but from the beginning of this book till the end was the best. Now with that said he was starting to get on my nerves being so damn oblivious to his feelings but I still love him. He’s cocky , self-centered, don’t care for

L. Steele does it again, I agree with a few other reviews that the series keeps getting stronger. Part of that is you continue to keep peeking into the other brothers' lives in this story which ticks a box as if you have read the other earlier books, you are totally emotionally invested in their adventures. But this story has you engaged within Chapter 1 ! That is hard to do, you get so many questions rattling through your mind that you can't put it down. Without spoilers (as I hate that) going ...more

This is the 7th book in the Sovrano Mafia series. (The first 3 books tell Michael Sovrano's and Karma's story. They also give a history of the Sovranos and tell how Michael became the Don. Each subsequent book deals with a different Sovrano brother. There are 7). This one is Luca Sovrano's and Jeanne's story. If you've been following this series, you know Luca was the hot headed brother, the one with a chip on his shoulder. The one who shoots first and asks questions later. You've gone the gamut ...more

A wonderful read, great addition to the Sovrano Mafia family and their second in charge

Two separate individuals have been kidnapped and then have been put in room with people that they have never seen or heard of before in the case of Jeanne who had been picked up on the street after finishing her training for the upcoming stage show of Beauty and the Beast.

Luca had grown up in the Mafia life and knows that there is a chance he could be kidnapped or killed by some assailant so it was always esse

What an awesome story, this story was packed with so much suspense it was intense. This story was a page turner, from the moment we started turning the pages, I was hooked and by chapter 2 we knew we were not going to be able to put the book down until it was finished. These characters we simply awesome, so many engaging and fun characters, especially the mafia wives.

Luca Sovrano had always coveted the power that Michael, as the older brother, had and from the beginning of the first book he was challenging Michael. But the lion was not as fierce as they paint it and the family and what it represented for him, made him return to the herd and try to adjust to his position within it. Intense, stubborn, and given to not mincing his words, he was determined to go against the current, not to get caught up in the nets of a woman as had happened to his brothers, muc ...more

I loved Jeanne and Luca's story. I didn't know why Luca thinks he doesn't deserve or want love because how he is with Jeanne is a chef's kiss. Of course, he tries to deny it and convince himself and Jeanne that it's a fake marriage and they're only convincing his brothers. Their story is full of suspense, action, love and sexiness. ...more

worst book I have ever read

Great if you like plots that make no sense and sexual assault- because that’s all this was for at least the first half. Gets consensual after that but oh my god is the plot stupid and the writing pedestrian.

OH MY!! You know the saying..." The tougher they are, the harder they fall" ? Well that was Luca.
He is definitely Michael's enforcer. To be kidnapped just didn't seem possible. To wake up to an Angel, and wanting to corrupt her, that fit him to a T. His Angel, Jeanne, made him work for it, and OH BOY did he work at dirtying her all up. There wasn't anything Luca wouldn't do to ensure Jeanne and his family were safe and to what lengths he'd go to get their beginning of a very happy ever after. No

This is the seventh book in the Sovrano Mafia series. Except for the first three which revolve around Michael and Karma’s story each subsequent book is about one of the seven Sovarno brothers. I would suggest as the stories are interlinked you read the entire series. In fact you’d be best to read the Bad Boys Billionaires series as well as not only will this add to your enjoyment there is also a thread running through these books going right back to when the billionaire seven were abducted and f ...more

I’ve been editing for L Steele for a few years now, and her books continue to improve. In this one, the author delves so deeply into the motivations, thoughts, fears, and passions of Jeanne and Luca, it’s difficult to remain detached. These are real people suffering through real problems, with the added twist of an enemy of the Mafia trying to kill them. And it’s mostly believable, at least, based on my little bit of knowledge from books and movies.

Jeanne comes across as a goody-two-shoes at th

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Luca Sovrano. One of the Sovrano Seven. Ruthless Capo. Dangerous Villain. The most beautiful man I've ever seen. Our paths should never have crossed, but when he's thrown into the same cell as me we are trapped together. And forced to play a dangerous game to survive. When he asks me to pose as his pretend wife, I agree. But what begins as a fake relationship. Blows up into real life longing. When we

Maffia Obsession is book seven in L Steele's Arranged Marriage series and I quite enjoyed reading it. So far I've only read books six and seven in this series and so far I've enjoyed the series. Both of the books that I've read have been different from other mafia romances that I've read. Yes there are tropes in them that I've seen before but she's given them twists to make the stories unique.
While I'm sure this was purposeful one of my favorite aspects of Mafia Obsession was that I got a Beaut

First time reading this author.
The beginning of this book reads like a romcom rather than a Mafia story. The action scenes are ridiculous. So many guns trained directly on the hero, and he kills every one of his opponents, even as he’s being chased by cars, while he’s out in the open riding a motorcycle. But the scene that aggravated me most was that as the bad guys are almost upon them, the dumbass heroine stands there arguing with the hero rather than getting her ass on the bike so t

This book was hot, hot, hot and so very dirty but it was what I expected from Luca Sovrano from the very first moment we met Luca. I knew there was another side to Luca and in this book we get to understand the myth behind the man. Luca does not believe in entanglements but all that changes when Jeanne comes into his life in unexpected circumstances. In Jeanne, Luca has met his match and even though Jeanne is very innocent, we discover she also has a very dark side. These two together made the b ...more

Luca Sovrano is quick to anger, quick to react and quick to retaliate. He's the Sovrano brother who challenged Michael for the leadership of the mafia family and for the affections of his wife, Karma. He's been ambushed and thrown into a cell where he finds another captive, Jeanne Watson. She was also ambushed on the street and remembers only the sickening smell of whatever knocked her out. Now she faces off with Luca, taken in by his roughness, but also his beauty. Neither has any idea why they ...more

A roller coaster of a read featuring kidnapping, arranged marriage, a dirty talking hero, a Legally Blonde obsessed heroine and the Sovarno famiglia.

Mafia Obsession is everything I love in a book. An arranged marriage between a dirty talking, dominant alpha anti-hero in Luca Sovarno who surely must be the dirtiest of all his brothers when it comes to bedroom antics and a strong heroine in Jeanne, a dancer about to get her big break and who isn’t afraid to stand up to Capo Luca when necessary ev

I wanted to read this book after reading the blurb. It was also my first book by L.Steele and I will be reading more of hers on the regular. What I liked about this story was the fast paced events, the steamy interactions, and the comical entanglements. The story starts with a ballerina, Jeanne, that gets kidnapped and thrown into a room with no windows, cement walls, and a heavy-duty locked door. However, there is also a bed and bathroom that aren't the worst things in the world. Then after a c ...more

This book starts out on a high and never lets up! Page after page I was stunned with both the intensity of the characters and their actions as well as the spice. OMG THE SPICE - Kindle melting. This is the seventh book in the Sovrano Mafia series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

Jeanne and Luca’s lives couldn’t be more opposite, but somehow they ended up kidnapped by the same person and in the same room. They have an instant attraction that neither wants to admit and of course there’s only one

Mafia obsession is book 7 in the arranged marriage series, you don’t need to read the previous books to enjoy this one
Obsession follows Luca, the Capo of Cosa Nostra and Jeanne, a small time dancer staring in a theatre production of beauty and the beast. Both Luca and Jeanne find themselves abducted by Luca’s family’s enemy Freddie. From chapter one I was gripped, I had so many questions that I just could not put this down.
