My Life Series: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone

5++++ Stars

I have never read the first book of a series and then 3 smaller books that were a prequel to the actual series but it was completely awesome. This author has a forever fan in me as her writing is out of this world and this series is simply outstanding!! Below a short review of each of these books. This is Aless’s story and what a story it is!!!

Book 1 – My Hidden Life
I was so excited to read this book after finishing The Only One, we got a glimpse of Aless at the end of that book but this story starts when she was a young girl, the daughter of the head of a crime family who wants to shape her into the one that takes over the family when she gets older and marries whoever it is her father decides she will marry.
I highly recommend this story as well as the first in the Brothers of Camelot, I can already tell this whole series is going to be one that I’ll want to reread in the future.

Book 2 – My Tragic Life
Another awesome part of this series…Im so anxious to get to where we meet Aless in the 1st book of Brothers of Camelot I can’t hardly stand it. Aless is totally awesome and I have fallen in love with so many people in these books and just seeing how all of this plays out is like nothing I’ve ever read…I normally don’t like prequels after the fact but this has been done brilliantly in my opinion by this author.
Im left with What is going to happen??? These characters I love so much, how are they going to play in to all of this…the tie in to the first in the Brothers of Camelot is so spot on, I’m just so excited to finish this story but I don’t want it to end either. Like I said this author has me all kinds of messed up.. LOL

Book 3 – My Free Life
I was so scared to start this book because I just knew when I finished Id want to jump right into the second book of The Brothers of Camelot and that is exactly what has happened. I love how this author started the Brothers series and then went into these 3 prequels. The My Life Series was awesome and the way she pulled in the Brothers in this story was brilliant. This author has to have a pile of notes or a white board with all kinds of stuff on it because she didn’t miss anything. Everything ties in perfectly and I truly believe Aless’s story needed to be told and this just has me needing the next book like right now!!
This part of Aless’s story was so full of twists and turns and I just can’t wait to see how this will all play out in her future. She’s probably one of the strongest female leads I have ever read about and I do hope that where she is now and what is to come she is able to find her softer side but I’m thinking that she will still need all of her training because we haven’t experienced yet the reaction to her actions in this story, that transition happened a bit too easy and I have a feeling the repercussions are still to come.

Read this series…It is so amazing and having these in a convenient box set will make it so much easier when I reread them in the future!!!

LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Hidden Life by Necie Navone is prequel to her Brothers of Camelot series. It is a series in its own rights called My Life. I love how she left us impatiently waiting for Aless and Greyson’s story and now she has given us her story so that we would be well acquainted with her!
My Hidden Life is the first part of Alessandra “Aless” Canzano’s story. The writer has told the story of the Princess of the Canzano crime Family from different point of views that gives it a much more intensive flavour! She started training when she was six years old and became the best while all along she only wishes to be ‘normal’ (normal is soooo overestimated!). So the first volume is about Aless growing up and training and needing to hide her life even from her closest friends and family.
It tries to give us answers to “What happens when you realize your choices for your future are no longer your own? What happens when you experience just a glimpse of another life while knowing it will never be your reality? What happens when you need to walk away because it’s not the life you’re supposed to live? I cannot wait to pick up the next volume!

By Necie Navone

My Hidden Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel (My Life Series Book 1), is a wonderful read by Necie Navone. Alessandra is trying to find her way in her family, but hers is not your normal every day family. Her family is part of the Italian mob. Alessandra wants to be a normal teenager, but her family’s life style is not allowing this for her. My Hidden Life is told from different points of views which keeps the story interesting and has you wanting to know what is on the next page. So, if you want an action-packed book, that also contains suspense and drama then I have to say this is the book for you, and a book you will enjoy from the first page to the last.

My Hidden Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel (My Life Series Book 1) by Necie Navone is one great start to the series that you don’t want to miss. Necie has a way with her words that ensure you are engrossed in not only the story but you are thoroughly invested in the characters. Being the Princess of the Family is not all it is cracked up to be. Being raised to one day take over a mans world from the day you were born means you see and hear things you would never see in a million years.The story is told in multiple POV’s enriching the story so much more. There is so much drama and action, murder and mayhem as one Family fights another in this cut throat world. Read as one little girl learns what life is like in a world full of violence but also love.

5 out of 5 stars

My Hidden Life written by Necie Navone and I was awesome I loved the characters especially Alessandra aka Aless she was one fantastic teenager with the world on her shoulders. The characters are well written and their quirkiness and banter was great. The plot is great it has danger, intimidation, fights, and a very protective family.
Alessandra, is the Princess of the Canzano crime Family, she was introduced to the dangers of her family’s world at the young age of six when a rival family left her bleeding and scared on her birthday.
Her uncle now dedicates his life to making sure she is not only protected but that Alessandra will never feel helpless again in their world. All the while, trying to keep her feeling like she is just a normal young girl.
She has to be better than any man around her. She’s the Family future. Can she handle the family and all that it entails?
Let’s, watch Alessandra in Part One of My Life series as she trains to be the heir to the Canzano Family the way her Capo her father wants. A life that she must hide from even her closest friends and family.
I really enjoyed My Hidden Life and Alessandra and I can’t wait to read the next installment My Tragic Life….

She’s had to learn to defend herself at a very young age and as time goes by she learns a few things about her family and is closest to her Uncle Louie who has swore on his life he will keep her safe. She has been named the princess of the family and as time goes by the sense of family and security starts wavering and she knows she might just have to take her future into her own hands.

I loved learning how her and Grayson met and the connection the two shared…I sincerely love this authors writing style, I enjoyed every word and can not wait to read the next in Aless’s story and see what happens with her future.

I highly recommend this story as well as the first in the Brothers of Camelot, I can already tell this whole series is going to be one that I’ll want to reread in the future.

Loved It!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read a couple of books from this author but she keeps on blowing me away. This is a prequel to the Brothers of Camelot series. I love a good coming to age mobster story but this book exceeded all my expectations. You can’t help to fall in love with these characters. I absolutely love the Uncle. I could not put this book down until I was on the last page. It only took me a few hours to devour this incredible story.

Alessandra was born as the Princess to the Canzano Family. She is the daughter of a very powerful man. Alessandra is to be the head of the Family when the time comes. She has to train everyday to make sure that she has skills to fight. Her Uncle dedicates his life to love her like his own. They have a bond that can never be broken. Alessandra wants to be a normal girl but she quickly realizes that she is not normal. She has to protect her family and friends. Alessandra is on a trip and she sees a handsome guy. She can’t get him out of her mind. Alessandra learns some family secrets that will change her life. Will Alessandra be able to have a normal life or will she just be her father’s puppet?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all suspense, mystery, and a little bit of romance. You will fall in love with Alessandra right from the start. She is a very strong girl that has a good heart. Alessandra loves her family and friends but she wants to be a normal girl. Her Uncle is my hero. He takes care of her like his own. He makes sure that she gets what she needs because her father is usually absent. This book will give you all of the feels from sadness to joy. I can’t wait to see what happens next to these unforgettable characters.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Hidden Life is an amazing start to a trilogy that I cant wait to finish. It is a prequel to the Brother of Camelot stories, but the first in the My Life Series by Necie Navone. It is a coming of age story, about Alessandra, the Princess of the Canzano Family. Her family is part of the Italian mob, and her dad decided, when she was just 6 years old, she will be the one to take over as the boss of the Family. Her uncle Louie has dedicated his life to protect her, as well as train her. Due to the target on her back, her father decides she must be trained to protect herself in any situation, regardless of being a child. She thinks it is fun as a young girl, but soon tires of it and wishes for a normal teenage life. These feelings intensify after she meets a boy, who doesn’t know her past or story, and sparks fly.
Navone quickly made a lifelong fan. I read The Only One earlier this year, which will be tied into this series. I enjoyed it, so when I heard about this book being a prequel, I jumped on it, and was blown away. This story has it all, a little bit of drama, romance, fear, devotion, so many strong feelings. It is told mostly from Alessandra’s point of view, with a mix of her uncle’s as well. I highly recommend this book, and cannot wait to see what happens in both series to come.

Necie Navone spins a wonderful tale about coming of age in a crime family. My Hidden Life begins the tale of Alessandra, the Princess of the Canzano crime Family. Alessandra has always known that she would one day take over her family’s “business”. Although she was introduced at an early age to the violence that can be her family’s world, Alessandra tries her hardest to just be normal. Necie Navone grabs the reader from page 1 with this book and doesn’t let go until the end. I enjoyed the richness of the characters and following Alessandra on her journey. Ms. Navone paints a realistic and often brutal world but gives emotion and depth to her characters that make them jump off the page. I am looking forward to reading more from this fabulous author! Don’t wait! Pick up this awesomeness now!!
