Blog Tour and Review: Defying Her Mafioso

DEFYING HER MAFIOSO by Terri Anne Browning is now LIVE! 
This is the 1st book in a brand new series, The Vitucci Mafiosos

Ciro Donati was many things: 
My father’s most valued and trusted soldier. 
My brother’s best friend and second in command. 
And the only man I would give up everything for. 

I fell hard for the Mafioso at the tender age of eleven. This beast of a man who I knew made people disappear—and probably enjoyed every second of it—was also the sixteen-year-old boy who had picked me up after I’d fallen flat on my face during my dance recital and told me I was the best ballerina he’d ever seen. He’s watched over me, protected me like I was the most precious thing in the world to him. 

And then he sent me away. 

Scarlett Vitucci was many things:
The daughter of the biggest Cosa Nostra boss from New York to Chicago. 
The sister of the man I would gladly take a bullet for. 
And the only woman I would ever love. 

Sending her away was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I didn’t deserve her or her love. For three years I stayed away, ignoring the gnawing ache that her absence left in my chest. Now, she was back and fighting what I felt for her was impossible. Letting her go had been a huge mistake. 

One I would never repeat.

Fans of the author's MC series have been intrigued by Felicity's cousin back east for some time now.  Finally, we get an inside glimpse at the Costa Nostra.  Scarlett's father runs one of the biggest syndicates in the country.  One of his best capos is the love of her life and the man who three years ago sent her away and broke her heart.

The story starts with a bang and has the reader sucked into the predicament Scarlett is in.  Scarlet and Ciro have been dancing around each other for years.  Ciro feels he is not good enough for the mafia princess.  Scarlett feels like the earth and sun revolve around Ciro and she will take him as is. Life changing events sometimes make things a bit clearer for everyone.

It's a forgone conclusion that these two will end up together.  The middle of the book kind of plods along but the beginning and end is packed with action.  I love when the tough guy's heart finally melts for the one and only woman for him.  And I liked that Scarlett was a bad a$$ in her own right.  I was really intrigued by all of the secondary characters in the story.  It was nice to see the guys from the MC helping out in this book as well.  Lots more to tell about this mafia family, I think.  Looking forward to Tor's book!
