“They took something that belonged to me—and nothing will stop me from getting him back.”

The Fiores have made their move.
In a last-ditch effort to save their crumbling empire, they’ve managed to take back their heir, landing a blow to the Rossettis—in particular, Dom.

But failure is not an option for Dom, and soon he finds himself at a crossroads:
Follow his father’s orders and leave Luca to the wolves, or defy the boss and get back what he lost.

The question is, will Luca choose to trust Dom to keep him safe even after all he’s put him through, or will he put his future in the hands of his long-lost family instead?

As the war between enemies reaches its breaking point, both Dom and Luca face the most difficult decision of their lives.

Do they fight for their families or do they fight for each other?

Sinful Mafia Prince is the second and final book in USA Today Bestselling authors Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank’s M/M Mafia romance duet. It should only be read after Forbidden Mafia Prince.

Dom and Luca fall in love against an Italian background

Sinful AMAZON‎Sinful Mafia Prince by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a conclusion to the romance between Dominic and Luca, this book is excellent.

As a conclusion to the Mafia conflict between their two families, I felt like a big chunk of the story was missing.

The pacing throughout this book is definitely more languid, it’s a slow build up of the barriers Dom has tightly closed around him coming down, it’s a steamy exploration of their attraction.

What it’s not is any kind of explanation about what happens after the big plot twist moment…

***SPOILER***

when Vincenzo kills Luca’s crappy dad in the hospital. There’s no fall out from that at all.

No other appearances from the nut job Mickey who was threatening death to Luca and talking about the “long game” the Fiores bodyguards were supposedly playing. That story element just never gets brought up again.

Neither do we find out what happens to all the leftover Fiores hit men and associates, including Luca’s actual birth mother.

And there’s a significant lack of how the Mafia Prince being gay was received by everyone in the Rossetti family but also all the others as the Epilogue jumps two years ahead.

***SPOILER ENDS***

It was all a tad strange. Still, that’s my main criticism and the rest of the narrative I found worked pretty well as the romantic atmosphere of their getaway location worked its magic.

The book makes no excuses for the violence or Dom’s behaviour, which I found to be a refreshing decision. Dom is a bad man, his family have done bad things, that’s acknowledged and not waved away with platitudes.

Luca falls for Dom in some measure because of those steely traits, not in spite of them and Brooke and Ella also skilfully avoid it feeling like any kind of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ (although that’s its own controversial theory now any way!)

There’s a good bunch of secondary characters and the atmosphere of being in the location is second to none, but this duet rests almost totally on the shoulders of Dom and Luca and the authors carry that off in some style.
