My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rule is the first novel in the Larussio series by Via Mari. This is my fourth novel by this author.

Katarina Larussio is trying to fill her father’s footsteps. But with the mistrust between her and the Italian family, it’s going to be hard. Chase Prestian made vows to protect his wife, but Katarina needs freedom to continue her father’s legacy in the mafia and freedom comes with consequences.

Her cousin Giovanni has employed Serena Motetti but how can she resist the attraction to the man that costs her everything?

I love this author and was so excited when I noticed there was going to be another series.

There are so many intricate stories that weave together. They are written so beautifully that it’s hard not to love them even when the characters aren’t the greatest.

I look forward to the next book in the series!

Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) by Via Mari.
This author has quickly climbed to my one click list and once again I know why. This book immediately pulled me in so deep I didn’t want to leave. The characters truly grab readers and take them on their journey. I found myself completely lost in the story world the author created. It’s got suspense and romance that can make the room temperature rise, it’s everything I love in a book. It’s a well thought out story line that’s both written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. Each character brings something unique to this incredible story. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Five stars all the way and highly recommended!

Rule by Via Mari is book one in the in the Larussio Legacy series. I previously read the Torizal Affair series by Via Mari and was thrilled to get my hands on this one. She is an excellent writer. Her stories have a way of drawing you in and holding you captive until the very last page. She paints the story so well. Her characters and their descriptions are so strong and you can’t help but love them. There is the perfect amount of romance, steam, and suspense in all of her novels and that includes this book as well. In this installment, there are so many powerful men and families. I like how this book goes through each person’s point of view so seamlessly. When I first saw that there were 4 different point of views I was a little skeptical of how it would work… but Via has done it again… it worked out perfectly. Chase and Katarina are just precious and I fell in love with them in the previous series. In addition to my 2 favorite characters we were introduced to Giovanni and Serena. His attraction to her is instant but her distaste for him, which stems from her family history, is discovered just as fast. I really enjoyed watching the two become acquaintances and more once they sorted out the misjudgments of their pasts. The end of the book is kind of a cliff hanger, so I am very eager to get my hands on the next one.

Rule by Via Mari was a captivating novel! I couldn’t put it down! It was enthralling, mysterious, and very steamy! If you liked 50 Shades of Grey you will love this novel!  I can’t wait to read the next installment of The Larussio Legacy series! I definitely recommend this book! It is most definitely an 18+ novel though.

Via Mari does a wonderful job telling the story in Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) through the eyes of 4 individual people. Though some of them are connected, like Katarina is married to Chase and is a cousin to Giovanni, and Giovanni is interested in Serena, I think the author did a magnificent job being able to blend each person’s story to make one cohesive story. Most stories I read have two characters that may go back and forth telling the story, but I have not read many 4 main character stories and I am amazed she was able to keep everything straight and flowing so well. I definitely will be looking into more books by this author.

This story has an interesting blend of a mob family, which can have its own mysteries and suspense intertwined into it, and romance. I was thoroughly intrigued to read the workings of a mob family and thought the author did a great job showing the differences between the American family and the Italian family. Katarina and Chase balanced themselves quite well. The submissive/dominant partnership they shared was romantic, as Chase wanted nothing to do but protect his wife in any aspect of their life, but then steamy at times as well. Then the “relationship” between Gio and Serena kept me wanting more, as every time Serena would turn down Gio, which was unheard of for him, it just fueled his want for her even more. But the mystery behind why Serena hates his family so much makes for an interesting conflict throughout the story.

4 out of 5 Stars
What a fantastic way to start a new series. Via Mari never ceases to amaze me with both her quality of writing and her development of characters. This book brings in characters from her previous books. While not a necessity, I would recommend reading Via Mari’s previous works to know more about the family and the dynamic behind it.
Rule is a romantic/suspense novel that follows the characters of Katarina and Chase. The love these two have for each other is tangible. You can feel how hot they are for each other from the pages of the book, (or kindle).
Katarina is caught with wanting to make her Italian father proud, while at the same time, honoring the wishes of her husband. She has to try to get her family to trust and agree that she knows what is best with the family business.
Chase will do everything in his power to ensure Katarina’s protection, even risking the wrath of her mob family.
The drama that ensures with both Katarina and Chase and then the families is fast paced, quick witted and passionate. You will need to read to find out what happens and you will not be disappointed.

Rule
The Larussio Legacy
Book 1
By Via Mari
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This is a full length novel. In it you will find romance as well as suspense.
Not for those under 18, due to adult content.

Katarina Larussio Prestian and Chase Prestian are at it again. Them against the Mafia. Katarina’s father has been in an accident, and his health is what has brought out his Will. Now Katarina and her cousin Giovanni Larussio must get through to both families.Can these two families follow the rules? As well as satisfying the context in said Will? What a stressful, suspenseful, romantic story. There is so much I could say about this book. But I will not send out spoilers. Just believe it is one you will not want to miss.

Having followed this series, Via Mari has written another smash hit. After all of her books in the series, I say, “This is my favorite.” I have been wrong, as this is my favorite! Via Mari brings her characters back to life. I enjoy when she brings some of her characters back to help out where needed. She keeps her stories fresh and new. Take a chance on Via Mari, you will not be disappointed.

The story Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) by Via Mari is a must read! This is a suspense / romance book that follows the POV of 4 main characters. This book has everything you could ask for in a book, suspense, action, romance, heat, twists and turns that will have you lost in the pages until the last one. I fell in love with both of the Alpha men Gio and Chase but I think my favorite characters would be Serena and Katarina. Both these women are struggling in their own ways and yet they are both so strong! The storyline in this book was amazing and I can’t wait to see what comes next for these characters.
