The Moretti Crime Family is a series of three dark mafia romances plus a special extended epilogue for the first book that contains mature themes and graphic violence. Each book is a complete standalone (but always good to read the series) that ends with a happily ever after. There is NO cheating either.

Savage Beginnings (The Moretti Crime Family Book 1)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Being the only daughter of a mobster, Elena understands that there is a lot to his business dealings that she is unaware of. Having lived a sheltered life that became more like a jail term following the death of her mother two years ago. After taking shower and changing for bed one evening she is requested into her father’s study. Seeing men she hesitates but is told to come in and is forced to sign some papers – a contract of ownership. Her father has sold her to Julian Moretti for $10 million.

Julian has waited five years for the opportunity to gain revenge on Elena’s father. With a plan coming together two years ago when he first saw Elena at her mother’s funeral. He will make her his wife, take her virginity and kill her father. Although he knew she was never going to come quietly and fights him every step of the way. Locking her in his (their) bedroom until she earns further freedoms.

A dark broody man who Elena is sure has a split personality as he flips between being mean and caring for her. But she starts to feel things for him much to her own disgust. But this is just a revenge plot on Julian’s side, right? With her father attempting to gain her back (not out of love) will Elena see the man her father really is? Can she ever love Julian?

Violent Beginnings (The Moretti Crime Family Book 2)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Step into a dark mafia romance that had me loving and hating the leas characters at different points throughout the story. Kidnapped off the street on her way home from college Fallon is kept in a dark windowless cell for days before being sold at an auction to the highest bidder. Markus knew that he needed to bid on her the moment he laid eyes on her. With her looking just like a girl from his past.

As second in command in the Moretti crime family he isn’t someone who gets vacation days. But call sin some time off and head to a mountain lodge with Fallon. Bought for $1 million he isn’t sure what he is going to do with her, but being away from the outside world gives him the time he needs. Their relationship is a difficult one, flipping between caring/wanting to captor/captive. Although it is clear there is chemistry between them – it’s just Markus getting his money’s worth, right?

Wrong, there is an outside source pulling some strings and they are forced to deal with ghosts from the past. Navigating trust boundaries, emotions and life within the mafia lifestyle.

Available to buy from Amazon in Paperback and Kindle Edition.
