“What are you going to do with me?”

“Whatever the hell I want.”

In Manhattan, tensions are rising.

In a play for power, the Rossetti family has made a decisive blow, crippling their rivals—an act that has forced the Fiores to make a desperate move to maintain their supremacy.

Many miles away, Luca Davis, a young medical student, has no idea his life is about to change.

No idea that everything he’s been told about his life has been a lie.

Enter Domenico Rossetti, the ruthless Mafia prince. Powerful and unforgiving, he’s a savage in a suit—and the one who holds the cards when it comes to his new captive.

But when the war escalates and both are forced into seclusion, the two men are faced with a new threat: the rising sexual tension between them.

You don’t fall for the one person you’re supposed to hate, but it’s a temptation neither can resist.

Because falling in love with the enemy isn’t only wrong—it’s forbidden.

And the cost for defying everyone will be their lives.

Forbidden Mafia Prince AN - FB

Powerfully dark opener from Brooke & Ella

Forbidden AMAZONForbidden Mafia Prince by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As is the norm with these two writers when we get a duet, this is only the first half of the tale and it ends with a humdinger of a cliffhanger.

The romance itself isn’t usual though, it’s not really a romance at all in this first book, very much a case of enemies full of lustful passion and a need to consume the attention of the other.

Quite often with an enemies to lovers romance there’s not really much in the way of enemies, more a strong dislike. Not here, this is absolutely hatred at first on the part of Mafia Prince Domenico Rossetti when he gets his hands on Luca Davis.

Poor Luca, I felt so badly for him, he has no idea who he really is, he’s grown up in a normal family, away from the violence and corruption of the New York mobster life. When he’s taken captive by Dom he’s terrified.

However, as the situation between the families escalates, Luca and Dom slowly begin to connect, albeit in arguments and outbursts of defiance. When things get even more heated, the passion between them explodes.

Don’t expect Brooke and Ella’s usual swoony romance though, this is brutal, harsh, unforgiving and incredibly hot and powerful.

The final chapter did have me questioning Dom’s position as ultimate Mafia Prince because he makes a ridiculously stupid mistake which felt a bit like it was there to push the plot along.

But, it works and it’s not too far from the bounds of possibility given the circumstances and it sets up the delicious second entry which I cannot wait for.
