My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are intrigued by any of these books at all, this box set is a must read. Because I promise once you read one, you will want them all.

If you are interested in the Brothers of Camelot series, this box set is a must read as it provides valuable insight into a few of the main characters.

Navone does a brilliant job describing mob life in Europe and somehow making it relatable whether that is a geography or life you are familiar with.

Beautifully written. Dramatic and emotional. Highly recommend!

My Life Series: Box Set contains the three book prequel to the Brothers of Camelot series. It can be read as a standalone, but once you read it you will want more. Be prepared for a Necie Navone addiction!!!
I love this series so much! It has everything you could want in a captivating read. There’s action, friendship, grief, loss, camaraderie, longing, suspense, emotion, playful teasing, funny banter, and lots of riveting of drama- in this bloody and somewhat violent, coming of age story- with a twist. It really reminds me of “La Femme Nikita” in a lot of ways- which I also love about it. I think this series would make a brilliant movie, television series, or telemovie!!

The Box Set contains:
-My Hidden Life (Book One)
-My Tragic Life (Book Two)
My Free Life (Book Three)

Alessandra Canzano was born into an Italian crime family, the only child of the powerful and ruthless Capo (boss). She is their Princess, treated as royalty and living a fairytale life- until her sixth birthday when danger makes itself known, changing her life forever.
Her father had big plans for her right from the moment she was born, but after the events at her sixth birthday, he becomes even more controlling and obsessive. Alessandra’s beloved Uncle was tasked with training her, as he would one of the men. From the age of six she learnt hand to hand combat, then at eight she began weapons training as well. She was to tell no one of her training, or the reasons behind it. She was to keep that part of her life hidden from her mother, grandmother, family and friends.
Aless soon became one of the best fighters in ‘the family’, easily able to out shoot and defeat any of the men in hand to hand combat. But she was also learning a lot more about her family, their business, and the role in it all. She feels the heavy burden of responsibility and expectation, wishing she could just live a normal life. She has one brief encounter with a boy that stays with her long after he’s gone. Holding that moment in her heart and dreaming of a life with someone who loves her passionately.
Although she may be the family Princess, she feels more like a prisoner. The more she learns, the more she questions whether she can be a part of that world anymore. She starts to wonder if she would be better off running away and leaving it all behind. With danger an ever-present part of her life, Aless will have to remain vigilant. She is determined to find a way to avoid what her father has planned. But what can she do? Will she have no choice but to buckle under the pressure to preform to his expectations? What exactly does her father have planned for her? What does she uncover along the way? Where does Greyson fit into all of this? Does she end up staying because she’s afraid of losing everyone she loves? Or will she finally escape her gilded prison? What does her future hold? Shocks, twists, tragedy, lessons and more await Aless.
Ms. Navone is a wonderful storyteller, weaving a superb story that plucked at my heart strings, had me on the edge of my seat most of the time- whilst also creating characters who came to life, pulling me into their world and holding my attention right through till the end. The story is told from several POV’s which gave the story an extra element of interest. There was a lot going on in this book, lots of action, suspense, some violence, emotion, drama, and just a drop of romance.
Highly recommended reading!!
Brilliant!

Thank you, Ms Navone!

My Life Series: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone – Review by Jenni Bishop

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone is a box of amazing stories. These goodies all in one place is a bonus for anyone because you don’t have to wait to get the next one, it is already right there for you grab, because trust me you will want to. I fell in love with each and every story, hanging on each and every word that Necie wrote.

My Hidden Life (Book 1) is one great start to the series that you don’t want to miss. Necie has a way with her words that ensure you and you are engrossed in not only the story but you become 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 man’s 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.

My Tragic Life (Book 2) and as with the first book, you will find yourself engrossed in the world of the Canzano Family. You are thoroughly invested in the characters that you have grown to love in the first book. The Princess of the Family is smart, clever, and sassy and still being trained and raised to one day take over. She can out smart, out gun and out fight any man who gets in her way. This story continues to be told in multiple POV’s giving us that depth to the characters showing us what they are made from. The murder and mayhem, love and loss and high running emotions are at times heart wrenching. Necie has written a series that should not be missed. She is a diamond in the rough that is coming out shining.

My Free Life (Book 3) is the culmination of everything coming together in the tragic world of the Princess working toward her ultimate goal. With the men undeniably hers, the Princess continues to run things as she sees fit, but she knows there can only be one end, but little does she know that others have that same goal insight. Necie has once again written a winner, as she takes us on the journey that ends with death and sadness, love and loss. It’s at the ending that you will need tissues as there will be tears, as you are so emotionally invested in these wonderful characters. There is lots of action and murder, mayhem and secrets that could bring them all down. This is an explosive ending that should not be missed.

Anything of the Brothers of Camelot is a must. It is like a drug, you can’t get enough of.

My Life Series: Is the 3 book series of the life of Alessandra Canzano, daughter of Al, the Capo of the Canzano Crime in Italy. His dream is for her to take over the family one day, but her’s is to be a normal girl. The family drama is heartbreaking, but Alessandra’s strength gives her the power to overcome.

My Hidden Life: …She has to be better than any man around her. She’s the Family future.

Alessandra, the Princess of the Canzano crime Family, 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 girl.

Join Alessandra in Part One of ‘My Life’ series as she trains to be the heir to the Canzano Family – the Capo her father wants. A life that she must hide from even her closest friends and family.

My Tragic Life: Duty. Responsibility. Family.

Three words that form the gilded cage I’ve lived in my whole life. I’m the Princess of the Canzano Family, a title many would think to be glamorous, amazing. Well, the glamorous part would be accurate, but that’s where it ends. I’m absolutely miserable.

I’ve been training since I was six years old to protect the Family… a side of me that I need to keep hidden. I must appear to be the perfectly polished Princess at all times, a ruse and title I despise. I get no choice in anything, everything is controlled for me by my father, the Capo. I wish and dream for the freedom to be ME.

When a rival Family strikes causing my life to be turned upside down, I didn’t think things could get any worse and then I learn how wrong I am, as I’m forced to become my worst nightmare in order to protect the Family I want no part of.

My life went from being bearable misery…to nothing short of Tragic.

My Fee Life: Freedom. Something the majority of the people on this Earth enjoy. Something I’ve never had. Something I want more than anything.

When I left for University, I thought my life wouldn’t be quite so tragic… Ha! I am now the Capo Donna, in charge of the Family and its businesses located in Northern Italy.

The power struggle between me and my Papa, the Capo, comes to a head when some of my closest friends find themselves caught in a dangerous situation.

In order to save them, I have to let that switch inside me flip, the one I hate, in order to be what they need me to be to save them. The monster my Papa insisted I become, the one he can no longer control. The assassin. The side of me I fear will destroy my soul if I can’t escape from this Family… This Life.

Will I ever be able to wash this blood off my hands? Can I ever be absolved of the lives I’ve taken? This is the final straw.

As friends and loved ones begin finding their ‘Happily Ever Afters’, I know it’s time to escape. They’ll all be fine. They have their One and Only’s. It’s time for me to be Free…

So I can find my own.

5 Stars

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.

I have to stop there because I’m too tempted to give away too much! I loved this book as well as the whole series. Im praying the release of The Brothers book 2 if not far off. I’m so thankful I found this author, definitely added to my one click list.

This is The conclusion to the prequel series and I would highly recommend reading in order or you will be lost. This story has many layers and many details, to keep them straight you need the whole story.
Full of suspense, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. And it was hard to remember that Aless is only 20, so many situations she ends up in, and she handles like someone older.
I can’t say enough about this book, or series for that matter, but if I kept going id never stop and then id have written the book all over again!
This is a must read for sure.

My Free Life: Prequel to the Brothers of Camelot and also book three in the My Life Series written by Necie Navone. This is the story that pretty much has it all. And the best part is the strong female lead Aless. She’s now the Capo Donna and it’s all about to go down for the last time, she’s done she wants out and she wants her own life away from it all. It’s her turn. With family drama reaching an all time high. Aless is smart, strong, and dangerous. This was a great beginning to the Brothers of Camelot.

My Free Life: A Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot is the third book in the My Life series by Necie Navone. This series just gets better and better. I will caution you do need to read the whole series in order or you will miss major parts of the backstory and all of the books in this series are highly enjoyable and excellent reads. This book continues where the last book left off. Alessandra is twenty and away attending University, she is now the Capo Donna of the Family just as her father intended. Now that all of her friends are growing up and falling in love, will this by Aless’s chance to start over herself or is she to entrenched is the Family business to break free.This book like the rest of the series is full of action, excitement, suspense and danger that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the story. Necie Navone really brings her characters to life in the last book in this series and I look forward to reading more from here in The a Brothers of Camelot series. I have put Ms. Navone on my permanent TBR list. I highly recommend this book, series and author especially if you love Crime Family story’s mixed in with your romance.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the final book in the prequel series to the Brothers Camelot series by Necie Navone. I would HIGHLY recommend that you read these three books in order. You will be so lost if you don’t. I have a hard time with keeping up with things from time to time in this story line so I can’t imagine if you haven’t read the previous novels. I also might add that Necie is a very gifted storyteller. She has weaved a wonderful mobster boss story told from a woman’s point of view and done it flawlessly.

In My Free Life we find Aless grown up, well past her numbered age of 20. She has taken on the role of Capo Donna and is doing the best she can with the circumstances life has thrown at her. She is watching those she loves and holds dear enjoy a life full of happiness and freedom to live normally. She craves this so much for herself. She made the promise to one day be free and enjoy those happiness’s to her mother before she died and she is determined to make that happen. Can she really escape the role life destined her to fulfill though?

This book is fast paced, full of feeling and emotion, and really has a bit of everything in it. I am sad to see the My Life series come to an end but I am also looking forward to diving into the Brothers Camelot now and seeing the stories of the men in the family. I am off to pick up book one right now, The Only One. Thanks for a great prequel series Ms. Navone!

My Free Life: Prequel to the Brothers Camelot (My Life Series Book 3) by Necie Navone. I love this series. I have so enjoyed each book and I feel like I could call up the characters! This is the final installment in the My Life series and we’ve watched Aless grow up. She is now 20 and the Capo Donna of a Major Crime Family in Italy. She is watching all of her friends and family find love and happiness and she doesn’t have the choice to do that on her own. She made a dying promise to her mother that she would escape this crazy life and find true love and happiness. Will she be able to keep that promise? Aless has grown into a strong, beautiful, capable woman and most of her men want her either to be their wife or at least in their bed. Aless is attached to a few of the men who protect her but her heart is set on finding true love. After living with an abusive father for 20 years Aless is about ready to make her Mom’s wish come true. Will she succeed? These book are amazing and Necie Navone has become a new favorite author!
