Degrees of Innocence: Dark Mafia Romance (Cruel Deceptions Book 1) By Via Mari – Review by Lisa Helmick

Degrees of Innocence (Prestian Series, #1)Degrees of Innocence by Via Mari
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So this is just an okay story for me. I was expecting a mafia story and felt this is an overbearing businessman story with lots of smexy times. Sure he could be mafia but it is not eluded to until the end. I feel the author is just drawing it out to make it into more books. Not a lot happens through the whole long book other than slooow character development and lots of sex. I got tired of the main character’s thoughts pertaining to a work relationship. A few are fine..half a book..too much.

I also had confusion over the name Matt used more than once. Early on I just ignored it and realized later on I should not have as it became important and I wondered if it was the same person and I just did not make the connection earlier. But it wasn’t.

I did like how the characters met each other, their cute emailing and the danger that arrived. This ends in an unfinished story. Not really a cliffhanger but I just turned the page and the book was over leaving me feeling incomplete. This is not a first time author for me but this one is just not my favorite.
