Adrianna is a doctor in the Vegas strip, hired specifically to be at the beck and call of the Larussio crime family. While she also serves as the doctor to visitors of their hotel, her contract pays her extremely well and includes a glitzy apartment to keep the mafia family healthy. She has her reasons for taking this job, and the salary and amenities are strictly a bonus until she accomplishes what she came to do.

Salvatore Larussio is about to become the new Don to the family after his cousin stepped down from the position. As Great Uncle ages, he is preparing to retire very soon and hand the reins over to Sal. Sal was formerly an enforcer in their mafia family and is well known for his ruthlessness matching his cold demeanor. In reality, Sal has far more fears than anyone would ever realize. Being in charge meant everyone and their safety was his responsibility, now. It meant he could no longer enforce the punishments on their enemies, he could only make the call to do so. He lives in fear for his family and himself and has no time for love or romance.

However, Adrianna has caught his eye and he cannot help but recognize the pull he feels for her. He thinks of her constantly, even though any time they speak her distaste for him is evident. Will Sal take a shot at love? Will Adrianna’s secret and intentions ruin anything that might develop?

This is a fast paced read, very well written, draws a beautiful picture of their surroundings and has you rooting for Sal and Adrianna to be together in spite of everything. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

This book was well written and a great precursor for what this series will hold! The characters were well thought out and held a great deal of heat! I found the story interesting and easy to follow. I have read many mafia romances but this one just had something a little extra. Great first read from this author!

I just recently got into mafia stories. So when I saw The Boss’s vendetta I jumped on the chance to read this book, and I’m glad that I did. Via Mari had me from the beginning. This book has amazing main and secondary characters, personal revenge, danger,passion ect. She is a truly great writer. Definitely a must read. I’m looking forward to more in this Sicilian Gods series.

This is only for those over the age of 18 due to its adult themes.

Salvatore Larussio is a man who leads a double life, by day he spends time with the high rollers at his families casino, spending time with the big wigs, the high up and the social climbers, but begins closed doors, he is a ruthless heir to a mafia throne. Adrianna is a doctor with a past she would rather forget, but now she is working at the Larussio resort and is in charge of the urgent care there, but as well as the usual emergencies she has to deal with, add into that the responsibility of sewing the family up as well, she has a lot on her plate.

The two first butt heads over the treatment of a family member and when she doesn’t back down when faced with the devil himself, he is more shocked than anything, but when a family gathering which is supposed to be a happy one turns into a bloodbath, things take a turn for the unexpected for Adrianna. In the midst of triaging the casualties, a decision is made to whisk her away with them so that she can continue their care, but just what that means is something Adrianna is completely opposed to, but seemingly has no choice in the matter.

As they are being kept in close confines, things that Salvatore finds intriguing about this ice queen from the emergency room are the things he finds attract him to her the most, but when Adrianna is confronted with the realisation that she is attracted to those same things, she decides to tell Salvatore the truth of why she is there. Will the secrets she has been hiding make or break the tenuous bond she has is building with the family, or will it be her undoing? This is a Mafia suspense with plenty of action throughout, as this darkly romantic story pulls you into the the underworld and keeps you there, while you follow along this spicy story of retaliation and retribution.

Boss’s Vendetta

5*
This is an amazing mafia romance. It contains moments of my favorite features in books. It has action, steamy scenes, and enemies to lovers.
The main character is Salvatore and he has just become the head of the family business (aka mafia). With this he becomes the head of an incredibly hostile war between feuding family. When Salvatore meets Natasha the tension is thick. But the downside is that Natasha who is working for his family has been placed there to help fulfill a vendetta. This makes a romance with him even more complex. Sal’s focus should be his territory and his family but Natasha definitely threatens to disrupt that focus.
I loved this story so much. I love that this definitely delivers in the steam department. I also truly love knowing that this series will focus on all of Salvatore’s family. I cannot wait to see how the family continues to develop and how much steam will be brought.

Boss’s Vendetta: Dark Mafia Romance (Sicilian Gods #1) by Via Mari

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Boss’s Vendetta is the first book in the Sicilian Gods Series. The book was so well written that I finished it in about an hour. I loved the characters and the plot.

Salvatore is the next in line for the boss of his family’s mafia. He meets the urgent care doctor in the resort and finds that he can’t get her off his mind. He meets her through his cousin when his wife was harmed. The quote I chose for Salvatore is: “Anything and anyone remotely connected to the family or our organization is my business. Running the urgent care and being the only physician on call for the entire casino and resort— it’s too much for one person.”

Adrianna is the doctor at the resort where Salvatore and his family reside. Cousins, Uncles, brothers, and whatever else you want to call them. She mouths off the first time she meets him and now she finds that she can’t stop thinking of him. The quote I chose for Adrianna is: “Whatever does the dark prince want after pulling me from a much-needed night of sleep?”

Highly recommended for Mafia Romantic Suspense lovers.

I will admit, throughout this entire book they had me on my toes. I had no idea what was going to be said or what was going to happen, Between the connection of Adrianna and Salvatore to their messy backgrounds to how they came to be together I was on the edge of my seat I had no idea what the next page would bring and the surprises kept coming throughout the entire story. Adrianna who we meet and believe to be a bit of a stick in the mud and Salvatore the man we believe to be the devil incarnate. Two people who in almost every way shouldn’t work together but turns out to be one of my new favorite love stories!! The openness and honesty that they have with each other is absolutely beautiful and I loved every page of it.

This is the perfect startup book for a new series. It is explosive, filled with action, drama, violence, and romance. With characters that are relatable, ones you love to love and ones you love to hate.

Adrianna is the female in the stories we always aspire to be. She is a doctor, who was orphaned, and is looking for answers into her fathers death. Which may come from the elusive Larussio’s. So when she gets a job working in one of their casinos this may be the perfect chance to find answers to the questions plaguing her about whether the Larussio’s were responsible.

Salvatore, who is not even heir to the mafia throne, is thrust into the position solely by availability. Many think he should not be there nor that he has earned such a prestigious position of power. The last thing he needs is a sexy doctor turning his world inside out and giving his enemies a weakness to exploit.

Will Adriana finally uncover the truth about her father’s death and will it be the answer she hopes? Can Salvatore protect his family and Adriana from threats within and outside the family so he can find his happy ever after? This is a dark mafia romance, with suspense, lies, and romance which makes for an amazing story in my book. I am excited to read the next book in this series just to see what happens next!

Boss’s Vendetta: Dark Mafia Romance (Sicilian Gods Book 1)

I know these are characters we already knew of from earlier series but oh my, there is something incredibly hot and a sexy dangerous man who’s entire life was surrounded by or working in the Mafia, at least in this world.

I think I started crushing on Salvatore from the beginning and it grew from there.

From the beginning Adrianna didn’t hold back. She stood up to him every time she got a chance and their confrontations were popcorn worthy.

Salvatore made me think of the saying about onions and peeling back the layers. What you see at the beginning with him isn’t what you find when you get to his heart.

I am so happy that this new series is here and I can’t wait to see what happens with all of the family and get introduced to even more amazing and strong characters both male and female.

This author is one of those that I grab as soon as I see there is a new book without reading the synopsis.
