Fresh out of prison after serving a three-year sentence, Johnathan Marcello wants to get back to normal business as a mafia capo. The rules set out for him are clear—keep out of trouble, maintain a low profile, and stay stable. But stability is a delicate balance for a man like John, and shaky ground is only a single step away.
A chance encounter with a blue-eyed woman might just change his whole world.
Siena Calabrese's life revolves around cooking numbers, and scrubbing books clean. After all, a girl is only useful to men in the mafia, if she isn't totally useless. As long as she does what they want, then she can maintain the illusion of freedom. But illusions are only delusions in the grand scheme of her life, and reality is far more dangerous.
A man with secrets might just be the one thing she didn't know she needed.
In this life, family is everything. Or, that's how it should be.
Mix it all together, and it makes for a volatile city.
A war is coming.
Excellent story!! I love all of the Marcello books!! John living with bi-polar and the complexities it creates in life is accurate. I hope to John can mend his family relationships. He and Siena are a perfect match!!
John is wonderful
This book is so amazing. I love John. A book different and talks about issues that I can relate. John has just got of jail and looking for a clean break and bettering himself and enjoying life. When a certain Calabrese comes his way it changes everything. It changes everything on how he see things when Siena comes along. Siena and John are two people that are perfect for each other. They balance each other perfectly and Siena sees John just for him even after she sees John struggle with being Bi-polar John even loves her more.
The Jonathan Marcello is someone you want to m
eet and get to know. I love him even more. A person who would rather distance himself from the people he loves then to get closer, but that changes When Siena comes along. Johnathan wants to be respected and have people trust him. Being a Made Man and having your men and know what demons you struggle with is hard.
Bethany-Kris wrote a wonderful and amazing book and John takes my breath away Siena and Johnathan are the perfect couple.
There a few characters along the way that you'll want to get know from like Andino is a someone who you will love and hate. Andino will always have John's back no matter what.
