Lost in Carmel
By: Terri Lee
5 out of 5 stars

The story Lost in Carmel by Terri Lee is an amazing book. It pulled me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. The story had my emotions going up and down the entire time I was reading it. I loved reading about Natalie Hampton. She is the main character in the book. The author did an amazing job of making her character come alive. Natalie is a character that I couldn’t help but grow to love with each chapter that I read. This story tells of Natalie’s journey and about those she meets along the way as well as the situations that she finds herself in. There are ups and downs, heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. I found Natalie a woman who is intelligent, strong, and one that learns to be self-reliant. What does the future hold for Natalie? Read this book to find out. I enjoyed the interactions between the additional characters in the story and Natalie. This is a book that touched my heart. If you are looking for a story that has an amazing storyline and wonderful characters, look no further. I highly recommend reading it.

Running In Snow: A Holiday Novella

5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the two stories in this book. They will get you in the holiday spirit and are two sweet stories to read. They are romantic and will have you believing in the holiday spirit. One story will have you asking if your past define your future and the other if a holiday will be unlucky every year. I loved reading about the characters of Noelle and Eve. They are both characters that believe that their situation around the holidays will not change. Is that true? What does the future hold for Noelle and Eve? Read these novellas to find out. The stories did have my emotions going up and down as I was reading them. There are romantic moments and also heartwarming ones as well. Don’t miss out on two stories that you will not be able to put down until the end. I highly recommend reading them.

My Life Series: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone. This is probably one of my very favorite box sets. It made me fall in love with Necie Navone! This series is so full of emotion, romance, suspense, and mystery that you fall in love with the characters.
My Hidden Life is the first book and its the beginning of a wonderful journey. I would read these in order to get the most of them. This first book is so important because it introduces you to Alessandra Canzano The Princess of the Canzano family and everyone is looking out for her. This is a mafia series set in Italy and it takes on the journey of Alessandra’s life. When she was at her 6th birthday party a rival family left her injured by a shooting and so terrified. Her Uncle immediately started training her to never let anything like that happen again. While she is training to be a fighter she is also trying to be a normal Princess. She has to keep her friends thinking she is just a normal child.
Book 2 is My Tragic Life and its the continuation of Alessandra and the Canzano Family. In this book she is training each day and getting better and better. She is also becoming older and not wanting to follow all the strict rules that her father The Cappo puts in place. She must always come off as polished and perfect and also be ready to protect the family. She dreams of the freedom to where she can dress how she wants and be friends with who she wants. When another strike against her family happens she is ready to protect them with everything she has.
Book 3 is My Free Life and Alessandra leaves for University and she has become the Cappo Donna. Her life is anything but free. She is in charge of her family and businesses in Italy and her father is not happy about it. She is working on an escape but there are so many obstacles in her way. Her father has become a monster because he can’t control her any longer and she is dying to leave. Will she ever be truly free.
These books are so full of so many emotions. There is drama, action, romance and some comedy in this amazing book set. Do yourself a favor read them all today!

This series is set up very differently than any series I’ve read before.
We follow Aless, and learn of her background and how she gets to where she is when we see her in the Brothers of Camelot series.
This takes many twists and turns and just an absolute wild ride.
Necie Navone knows how to capture a reader and just drop you into the story like you’re living it.
This is a must read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone is an absolute must read before you even start thinking about reading the third book in her Brothers of Camelot series!
My Life series gives us the story of the daughter of the Capo of the Italian Canzano Crime family Alessandra Canzano in three parts. It is a story that gets its hooks into the reading from page one and doesn’t let you go. I was so relieved being able to delve into Brothers of Camelot series and finding out what the future had in store for her!
The first book “My Hidden Life” introduces us to Alessandra’s life when she is just six years old and training to be the hair to the family. It is a life that she needs to hide from everyone in her life and there is no way for her to keep her feeling as a normal girl.
The second book “My Tragic Life” turns Alessandra’s life from miserable into tragic! She has no control over anything – it is her father, the Capo that rules over everything! Her life becomes her worst nightmare when a rival Family strikes out against her Family.
The third book “My Free Life” sees Alessandra as the Capo Donna and the power struggle between her and her father. She needs to let the monster hiding inside loose when her closest friends get caught up in a dangerous situation. Also, the time has come for her to escape, time for her to finally be free!
Be forewarned, once you start reading, you cannot put the story down so give yourself a free weekend and I promise it is worth your commitment! It is an explosive series (literally) and once the dust settles, you will be ready to start with Brothers of Camelot!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of Camelot was a great 5 star read.
This is a great box set that has My Hidden Life, My Tragic Life and My free life.

My Hidden Life: Brothers of Camelot Prequel
We start with Alessandra celebrating her sixth birthday, she is the princess of the Canzano family and she knows she has to represent. After she is shot leaving her party, her father becomes very protective and obsessive. Her father is the Capo and a very powerful man with enemies.

Uncle Louie has been training Alessandra for years and has grown very close to her. She is well trained in self-defense and weapons. She can definitely take care of herself. She has a lot of responsibility and expectations as the princess of the family.

As Alessandra starts to learn things about her family she starts to question some things. Does she really want to follow through with her father’s expectations? I really like Alessandra, she was very smart, strong female. Once I started, I couldn’t stop until I was done.

My Tragic Life: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot
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.

My Free Life: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot
This is the final book in this great series.
Alessandra is getting ready to graduate and she is the Cappo Doona for the family. She wants to have her freedom and fulfill her promise to her mother. But things are not that simple for her.

There is so much that is going on in this book. All of the characters added a great element to the story. My emotions were all over the place. There are several unexpected twists and turns. I really liked Alessandra, she was a very strong woman that we get to watch grow up in this series. We get lots of action, secrets, suspense and so much more in this whole series. The ending couldn’t have been more perfect.

If you’re looking for a great read, I highly suggest you 1-click and get started on this one. I look forward to reading more from this author.

5 out of 5 stars
Ms. Navone out did herself with this series. The characters are amazing and well written, and the plot was amazing. The description of the surroundings and the detail of what Alless aka Alessandra went through is just amazing.
My Hidden life book 1: 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. 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 young girl. She has to be better than any man around her. She’s the Family future. Can she handle the family and all that it entails?
Let’s, watch Alessandra in Part One of My Life series as she trains to be the heir to the Canzano Family the way her Capo her father wants. A life that she must hide from even her closest friends and family.
My Tragic life Book 2: 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 miserable. She has been training since she was six years old to protect the Family… a side of her that she needs to keep hidden. She must always appear to be the perfectly polished Princess, a ruse and title she really despises.
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.
My Free like Book 3: Duty. Responsibility. Family. Three words that form the gilded cage she lived in all her life. But she wants to escape no be the princess she wants to be an ordinary woman…
Freedom. Something most of the people on this Earth enjoy and take for granted. Something she’s never had. Something she want more than anything.
When she left for University, she thought her life wouldn’t be quite so tragic…Ha! She is now the Capo Donna, in charge of the Family and its businesses located in Northern Italy. But her tyrant of a father/capo is in a power struggle and it comes to a head when some of my closest friends find themselves caught in a dangerous situation.
In order to save them, she needs switch flip, in side of her the one she hate’s, in order to be what they need her to be to save them. The monster her Papa insisted she become, the one he can no longer control. The assassin. The side of her fears she will destroy her soul if she can’t escape from the Family…
As friends and loved ones begin finding their Happily Ever After, she knows it’s time to escape. They’ll all be fine. They have their One and Only. It’s time for her to be Free… so she can find her One and only….
I highly recommend this book

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I originally read these stories individually and I love that they are now a box set. To be able to read from beginning to end is a pleasure.

This is actually a prequel to a series and stands on its own. There is a super strong story line with all of the important components for a good book. It has action, great dialogue, angst, humor and so much more.

I absolutely recommend this series.
