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

Degrees of Innocence (Prestian Series, #1)Degrees of Innocence by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wonderful book. This is the first book, out of four, in the “Prestian Series”. I wouldn’t technically consider this first book as a dark Mafia romance, there is no mention of Chase Prestian being Mafia or even a criminal until the VERY VERY end of the book. While it’s hinted he may have some shady business, it’s never, not once confirmed. It isn’t a very dark romance either in my opinion, the only thing I’d say that may categorize it as such is that Chase is overbearing and a tad controlling. It is still a great regular romance book though, which is why I still gave it 4 stars. Kate is the main female character and I absolutely love how headstrong she is but at the same time so very naive and gentle. The attraction and connection between the two main characters is definitely spicy and they can’t seem to keep each other at more than an arms length. I loved the background story line of them creating a brand new hospital for Chicago, it really makes the story more intriguing, so it is not just straight romance and smut. Cannot wait to read book two, and hopefully it is more detailed on the Mafia side of the story.
