Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari
5 out of 5 Stars
Rise is the 2nd installment in the Larussio Legacy series. I am a huge advocate of reading a series in book order, so please go back and read book 1 before picking this one. Via Mari continues with the Larussio family and what a powerful family they are. The most powerful crime family in all of Italy, Don, Giovanni Larussio is obsessed with Serena Moretti, a strong, intelligent woman who was raised to believe that the Larussio family is the source of all that is evil. As time progresses on, Gio and Serena clash and circle around each other in ways that are both heated and passionate. When Serena and her family become targets of enemies of the Larussio family, Gio will stop at nothing to keep Serena safe, and I mean nothing.
Via Marii is an incredibly talented writer. Her stories are so well written that you start the first past and the next thing you know, you are 100 pages in. You will not regret starting this series.
