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 Tragic Life by Necie Navone is the third book in the My life prequel series. This is only the second book I have read by this author but I was hooked from book one. I went right from book 2 into book 3 and am now reading the series that these books prequel. I really enjoy the characters development and the writing style of this author. I am not generally a fan of prequels, but I have really enjoyed learning more about the characters and their backgrounds. I give this book a solid 5 stars, and will definitely continue to read anything Necie Navone writes!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Tragic Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel (My Life Series Book 2) by Necie Navone is follows on right where book one finished. As with the first book you will find yourself engrossed in the world that Necie has created of the Canzano Family and you are thoroughly invested in the characters that you grew to love in the first part of the series. 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 is also 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.

5 out of 5 stars
My Tragic life is a prequel to the Brothers of Camelot written by Necie Navone and she did not disappoint me I just simply love this 3book series and 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. She is one bad teenager girl in a good way….LOL
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. Duty. Responsibility. Family. Three words that form the gilded cage she lived in all her life.
She is 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. She is absolutely miserable. She has been training since she was six years old to protect the Family… a side of her that she need to keep hidden. She must appear to be the perfectly polished Princess at all times, a ruse and title she really despise.
She gets no choice in anything, everything is controlled for me by her father, the Capo who is a tyrant when it comes to Aless. She wishes and dreams for the freedom to be HERSELF. When a rival Family strikes causing her life to be turned upside down, she didn’t think things could get any worse and then she learns how wrong she is and now she is forced to become her worst nightmare in order to protect the Family she wants no part of.
Her life went from being bearable misery to nothing short of Tragic…. I loved this story it was great and different from other mafia romanced… Ms. Navone has a new fan and I can’t wait to read what she has in-stored for us….

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Tragic Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel was a great 5 star read and book two in the My Life series and I was super excited to get my hands on it.

We continue with Aless’s story. She is very good with her weapons and she definitely shows up her Capos men. You get pulled in right from the beginning and won’t want to stop until your done. We get lots of action, suspense, several different emotions, violence and so much more.

Her Capo is looking for the right man to be by her side, why won’t he let her choose “the one”? She has gotten him to agree to her going to University, will her plan finally work? Can she get what she needs to get out?

Boy, I really love the chemistry between Luigi and Aless. He vows that he will not touch her while she’s underage but you can sure feel the heat coming up between them. Although she has plans to find someone outside the family. Grayson, please wait for me.

All of the secondary characters were great. Necie Navone does such a great job with her writing, you feel like your right there with everyone. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see where things go from here. If you’re looking for a series that pulls you right in, 1-click and get started on this one. You will love it!

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 cant 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.

Not going to go into much detail because I don’t want to spoil anything from the 1st in this series so will just say that Aless’s journey from 6 years old on is although not an easy one all the time it’s definitely never boring and she has the same desires and goals throughout both books and watching all of this unfold has had me all kinds of messed up, but I love the buildup that this author is writing…I love that someone who was only in a few pages in the first book is so very important in Aless’s story…

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

I can’t recommend this enough but do it in order…You really do want to read the 1st book of Brothers of Camelot before you jump into the My life prequels.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Tragic Life by Necie Navone is book 2 of My Life series. This is a five star novel. I love the way the author is able to really get us into the life of an Italian mobster. In the first book, we meet the Family and the Capo. Then we follow Alessandra growing up until she is about fifteen. The second book picks up here and has us even deeper into the life of the Capo and how he treats his family, especially his daughter. She continues to be trained by Uncle Louie and is able to show off her training by beating the boys in her shooting. Now she will star going to family meetings and learn more about what will be required of her when she becomes the Capo. Little does everyone know, she is trying to figure out a plan to escape to America. After her visit there for her birthday, she knows she needs to get out of the life and find true love for herself.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series has me hooked! The writing, the characters, and the storyline are superb and continue to blow me away!

This book picks up where the last one left off. We have Alessandra who has been trained by the age of six in many things she must keep a secret. Now that she has reached her teens, she ready to do “teenager” stuff but the promises she made to her father hold her back. She loathes the life she leads and would do anything to be free from it all. Certain events happen on her 15th birthday which causes massive strain with her relationship with her dad but she has to protect those she holds close as well as find a way to have the life she wants.

I have legitimately devoured the books in this series. It’s beautifully written with all the feels and should be on everyone’s must read list

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Tragic Life is the second book in the Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone. I would highly recommend reading the first book as you will enjoy this book even more. Necie is an amazing author that keeps the story moving and sometimes throws a curve ball in the action. It is an addicting read so make sure you have time to read it in one sitting. The story is about the Alessandra and her role as the princess of the Italian Mob family. There was an incident when she was 6 and that is when her life changed. Her father became more neurotic and started to get Alessandra trained. She had started to train at the age of 8 by her uncle. She keeps training for the simple reason of becoming a bad ass. In public she is a Princess, but om reality she is a fierce bad ass getting ready to become the Queen of the Italian Family. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for Alessandra.

Five Stars

My Tragic Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel is the second book in the My Life Series by Necie Navone. This series should be read in order, this book starts where the first book left off. This series is intense and full of action. It follows Alessandra as she grows up a Princess in the Canzano crime family. Aless has learned to protect herself and her family from a very young age. When the time arrives and she uses her skills to save her family, it take a big emotional toll on her along with physically one as well. This book had me hooked from the very first page, and I couldn’t put it down till I read the last. Necie Navone has done such a wonderful job giving background on the plot and extensive character descriptions, that I felt I was right there in the story as I was reading. I look forward to the next book in this series to find out what happens in Aless life and how this series is related to the Brothers of Camelot series. I highly recommend this series.
