Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Shannon Fowler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Mari’s series. I like how each series is about a different family, each book about a different couple but that the families over-lap through-out each series.

I really liked this story line. Katarina and Chase were introduced in The Torzial Series, as friends of Jenny and Brian. We later fell more in love with them in the Prestian Series. And now during the Larussio Legacy we continue to follow their story! We also get to meet Katarina’s cousin Giovanni and his new friend Serena. What a match these two are! Katarina has to prove she can rule the family while her father is injured and possibly on his death bed; Gio has to prove that he can rule his own life without his uncle’s guidance and judgement; Serena proves to herself that she is smart, strong and worthy.

As I have said before, Mari’s mafia families and crazy good sex make for amazing stories! You don’t have to read the other series before this one, but if you do, when you get to this story it feels like you have a better connection with the characters

Rule by Via Mari
Four Stars

Rule is the first book in the Larussio Legacy series by Via Mari. I love the complexity and feeling that Via puts into all of her books and the way the series that she writes intertwine with each other. You learn a different aspect of the characters from a different point of view. This book is no different and it had me hooked from the very first page. I just couldn’t put it down until I finished it. Giovanni and Serena are a very dinamic and interesting couple. This is just a really great book to read. It is one of my favorites by Ms. Via. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

Rule is the first book in The Larussio Legacy series by Via Mari. It is a fantastic romantic suspense- with lots of drama, action, danger, secrets, passion, intrigue, spice, threats, twists and turns- and really superb characters. I have been working my way through Via Mari’s books, and have really enjoyed them all- so, as you can imagine, I had pretty high expectations for this book. Via Mari definitely didn’t let me down, producing a captivating story, which kept me engrossed the whole way through.
There is plenty of suspense, and Via Mari built the tension to quite a high level- keeping me on the edge of my seat a lot of the time. There were a few unexpected developments and twists which kept thing quite interesting and had me clamouring to know how it all played out.
I loved that we get to revisit characters we’ve met in previous series, whilst also meeting new ones as well. I can’t wait to see where this series will lead!!
Bring on Book two!

Thank you, Via Mari!

I am so excited for this series! And even though this is book one, I highly recommend you read the Torzial Affair series first as this is actually a continuation of that series. In this book we meet the Larussio’s – the family Katarina didn’t know she had until recently. Someone has attempted to murder her parents and her father has named her and her cousin Gio, whom she has never met, as beneficiaries of his living will. They are in charge of seeing her father’s dreams for the family come to fruition.

In finding this out, Gio and his great-uncle travel to New York to meet Katarina and find out if she’s for real or a fake out to get the family’s money. On the flight over, Gio meets Serena and can’t get over the instant attraction he has to her. The thing is, even though the attraction is mutual and HOT, she is terrified of The Family and wants nothing to do with Gio.

As is typical with Mari’s books, this one is full of suspense, twists and turns, romance, sexiness, and lots of action! I loved this book and can’t wait to see where this series takes us next!

Heart pounding. Heart stopping. The hallmarks of Mari’s work continues in this series opener. Romance and suspense told from four points of view. It is a story that kept me riveted from beginning to end. I cannot wait to see how the series continues! Bring on the next book!!

Whenever I see Via Mari has a new book, I need to read it because I know its a good book. Rule is no different. Mari takes a Italian family story and runs with it. The characters are engaging and personalities that just pop off the page. Katarina and Chase have a steaming relationship. They are trying to fulfill her father’s dream. Katarina has to remember when it comes to Italian family dynamics there are traditions and rules. Katarina is on a long road but maybe Chase will help her along the way. Katarina is a strong female character and I love watching her grow with the story. Will Katarina fulfill her father’s dream? Will Chase help protect Katarina? You will have to read the story to find out all the details of this story and more.

This is one of my favorite authors. I know that I am in for a steamy, suspenseful story that I won’t be able to put down. This one is no different. This story is in POV of four characters which made the story engaging. In this story Katrinia and Chase goes up against family to take over her father’s dream. I loved seeing Katrinia showing us how strong she really is. There is steam, action and suspense that left me turning pages fast. This is a must read and I highly recommend reading the previous books by this author.
