Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Susan Mowdy

Rise (The Larussio Legacy, #2)Rise by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m a huge fan of Via Mari and definitely a fan of this series! Via Mari knows how to hook you with every single book! Rise had all the elements that I love in a book. It had suspense, drama, action, and just the right amount of steam! I completely fell in love with Gio and Serena. His family is a powerful mafia family where her family has suffered under his family’s rule. Their chemistry will sizzle the pages but will their love be enough to survives his enemies?

Via Mari knows how to write a book. I have read many book by her but this series completely has me hooked and might be my favorite to date!

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari is a great continuation to the Larussio Legacy series. There is so much romance, action, and tension. I was so excited for the release, I needed to know what happened next after finishing the first book. I love the tension and the plot. I was glued to the pages and was bummed to finish. I already want to read more.

What a brilliant series i have loved every second of this novel which is packed full of suspense, romance , drama, passion, action and so much more! The character’s are so meant to be together even through there drama you just want to smack them at the back of the head just so they see what they have, but the storyline isn’t that easy. I really couldn’t pull myself away from this novel and I can’t wait to read more from this author I’ve never been disappointed truly amazing!!!

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari

The saga continues, we get to know Giovanni and Serena better and watch their relationship develop, grow and change from beginning to end.

There are so many things that happen in the book, I’m not even sure where to start with my thoughts and feelings.

I found myself getting very frustrated with Serena and thinking she needed to be throttled. I couldn’t believe she pulled what she did without out thinking it through. It could have ended up so much worse then it did.

Giovanni is understandably a over cautious control freak. He is the future of the Larussio family and that reason alone puts a huge target on himself and the people he cares about, but there is no way he could have seen all of that coming his way.

I loved getting to see Katerina and Chase even though it was a fairly brief appearance. They still are my favorite of the couples, though Giovanni and Serena have a chance depending on what happens in the next book.

Are you looking for a hot and steamy, romantic suspense thrill ride full of alpha male mafia men, sexy as sin bodyguards, and tons of action? Via Mari delivers all of this and more in Rise, book 2 in the Larussio Legacy series. I highly recommend you read the first book in this series before starting this one. Honestly, just go ahead and start with the Prestian series, continue to the Torzial Affair series, and throw in the Billionaire Bodyguards while you’re at it. They all tie in together in some way and give you a full complete picture of all the characters and their lives. Don’t get me wrong though. Each series is its own. It is just my recommendation that you read them all because they are all fantastic!

Every single one of her books has been outstanding and Rise does not disappoint! The action begins in chapter one and does not stop! There are twists and turns you will not see coming. And the sexy bits are oh…so…steamy! I’m an Italian. Where can I find myself A Gio? Rise will leave you wanting more and I am looking forward to the next book in the series!

Book 2
By Via Mari
☆☆☆☆☆
I wish I could give this story so much more than 5 stars. This is not for those under 18. Due to adult content.

This is the beginning of Serena and Giovanni s story. Serena Moretti as well as her family have suffered at the hands of the Larussio Family. She watches as her family is torn apart. Serena has grown up fearing them. Now she can’t seem to get past her feelings for Giovanni.
Giovanni will soon become the Don of the powerful crime family in Italy. He is not only powerful, he is extremely good looking. He can have any woman he wants and dump her the very next morning. He will stop on nothing to kill those who get in his way. Everything is about to change for him as well as the girl that has captured his heart. How will this couple survive the death threats and constant attacks on both of them, and their families.

Via Mari has continued to keep your heart pounding throughout this romantic action novel. This book starts on page one, with you drawn into the book. There is no putting it down. The action and bedroom scenes are enough to keep you reading. I love the characters in her book, and their strong will to survive. I won’t give any spoilers for this book. Even though I really want to. So take this book, wine and tissue to the reading corner. You will be there for a while. Via Mari PLEASE finish the next book, I NEED More!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari is another great story in the series and offshoot from the original series. There is plenty to get you lost in the story, with a little mystery and suspense, action and danger and humour. There is a lot of hot and steamy and oh so sexy romance. Via’s writing style makes it easy to read and pulls at you. The characters Gio and Serena from the first book are an ideal pair and you continue to love them. Gio is an alpha and in line to be head of the Italian mafia and Serena must learn to live with trouble with a capital T. I love how all the characters intertwine. The twists and turns you don’t expect, and the suspense add that little bit more of excitement. I was so engrossed in the story that I found myself on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

Rise by Via Mari
Four Stars

Rise is the second book in The Larussio Legacy series by Via Mari. This book hooked me from the very first page, like most of the other books in the universe. This book is full of action and suspense. Gio and Serena have great chemistry. I love how Ms. Mari keeps expanding the Larussio world. There are many characters that recur from previous books and it’s like hearing from an old friend. If you love action and adventure anda Mafia thrown in, then this is the series for you. I highly recommend you read this series in order, and also the other books in Via Mari’s universe. They definitely won’t disappoint.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rise is the second book in The Larussio Legacy series by Via Mari. This book was full of romance and suspense. Giovanni Larussio is the don of a powerful family in Italy and he is getting ready to run the largest casino in Vegas. On a trip back to Italy his world is rocked. Serena Moretti’s family had suffered for years at the hands of Gio’s cousins, but he has since made that right because of his relationship with her. Bad things happen to her and her family because of her ties with Gio. He will do anything to protect her but can his ultimate enemies get the best of him? Will Serena’s family ever understand her wanting to be with Gio and not see it as betrayal? This book was full of suspense from the beginning, the author did a magnificent job roping me in from the very beginning. I liked the suspenseful and thrill side of this story, but I also loved the sexy side of Gio and Serena. Their relationship is steamy and hot, I couldn’t get enough of them. I’m officially hooked on this series.
