Tempted by the Sinner: A Possessive Mafia Romance by B. B. Hamel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

She’s a little saint just begging to get corrupted.

And I’m the perfect sinner just waiting to take a taste.

Mona Rizzo wants to write the next great profile of a real American gangster, and she wants to use me as her subject.

Except I want to use her as my play thing.

It’s a match made in sin, and I’m going to suck her into my world before she even has a chance to stop loving it.

She has no clue what she’s getting herself into. Turning gorgeous little Mona into a true mafia princess is going to be the highlight of my life.

But once she’s mine, the Jalisco Cartel decides to start a war.

And I’m at the center of it.

Now Mona’s in over her pretty head, and I’m the only thing standing between her and real danger.

I’ll bring her through this, safe and sound. And when it’s done, I won’t let her go back to her old, boring life.

Get ready for a wild one! Mona has no clue what she’s getting herself into with Vincent… but she sure does end up loving it. Tempted by the Sinner is the next in the Leone Crime Family series and you’ll notice a few familiar faces… get ready for a wild ride! As always, this full length novel has no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a happily-ever-after is guaranteed.

Tempted by the Sinner

Gangsters live dangerous lives!

I don’t know why but I usually don’t like stories where the heroine is a journalist. I suppose it is because it usually involves lies to get a story and pretending that she is someone she is not. Though I liked this one. The heroine Mona first meets the Hero Vincent at a party where she is working for the caterer and is a waitress. She tells him right off the bat that she is a journalist and he is still interested despite being in the Mafia. Vince is a mafia Capo and son to Don Leone, head of the Italian mafia in Philadelphia.

Mona talks Vince into letting her do a story on him, without revealing his identity. Though Vince knows that reporters are his enemy, he is attracted to her and wants her from the start and so he agrees with a few conditions, including that she stay at his house while she is working on the story, shadow him everywhere he goes and that he gets to read the story first.

In the beginning, Vincent is extremely cautious and says things like he owns some businesses and works in sanitation. He says he isn’t a gangster or in the mob. However, when things between the familia and the Cartel heat up, he loses all pretense. Though by this time she has signed an NDA with an additional clause about her story, so Vincent’s father, the Don has the final say in the story.

“It’s a dangerous line of work, sanitation,” I said.
She laughed. “Sure sounds dangerous,” she said.

Mona finds out how soft and naïve she was coming in to Vince’s life and in order to continue she realizes she has to change and toughen up. I enjoyed the steamy romance between these two and the story was terrific. There was danger, murder, mayhem and all the good things I like about Mafia romance, plus a lot of chemistry and steam between the two main characters.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
