AFTERMATH VOLUME VIIOMGOODNESS That last chapter epilogue messed me up WhewThis book is definitely another transition book for this series Much like Volume II but without all the angst There is drama there is suspense and of course the all too consuming man that is Alfonzo Whew that manI did so love the romance that is brewing with Alfonzo s mom and Bruno This was so sweet sexy and just hot I m so happy for Mama Maria And I Bruno This was so sweet sexy and just hot I m so happy for Mama Maria And I eually amused with Alfonzo s reaction to thisALOT of surprises Nico Geo Shanda Geo s mom in this one for me Although this book is just paving the way for what is to come it doesn t make the journey any less intriguing explosive or sexyI just love this deep dark decadent Mafia Saga and I can t wait for Volume 8 Well done Ms Frank I highly recommend this series and please read this in order You will be #Completely Lost If You Don #lost if you don I really liked this book because it focused wasn t about Selange and Alonzo 247 I enjoyed the chapters that focused on the relationship amongst the brothers and Nico While I understand Selange and Alonzo are the core of the book their relationship has been dissected and analyzed It was a refreshing break to learn about the other major characters Nico and Ari s love is uite realistic You have two strong stubborn people who are afraid to show their vulnerable sides Geo is crazy but I love his character It was nice to see a sensitive Geo but it would be nice if he s written has than a hardhead with a heart I would like to his intelligence displayed like Nico and Alfonzo Overall I loved the plot and character development Oh and the focus on the relationship amongst the brothers which I figured out by Anarchy and Nico The reconciliation between Nico and Geo was touching The only reason why I did not ive this 5 stars was because there too many inner monologues This was a 2 star book with a 4 star ending I ve one through lots of rowing pains with this series but Book 6 showed that Alfonzo is indeed a force to be reckoned with and this trend continued in Book 7 I love the camaraderie among Nico Geo and Alfonzo especially because of the new found link between Geo and Alfonzo Alfonzo is at the forefront making decisions and has truly matured I especially liked his conversation with his cousin Sergio because it shows how far he s comeWhere this book suffers is that it regresses to the problems of Books 1 3 It is wayyy too SelangeAlfonzo relationship centric It is overkill They love each other She is his moon stars sun koolaid Hard Cash grilled cheese pasteles platanos weet it They re dating again now So now I have to endure him dressed like he s E.O.

S.W. Frank Ò 3 charactersHe best I have ever read I finished them in all in about a week these book read like a movie I have only read 1 other series that even compares to this one Every character was skillfully done you could feel the emotions of every one of them The only real complaint I have was I did not understand Selange cheating with Nico it was kind of out of the blue for
meI did not see their relationship develop to the point they would sleep together not once that I kind ofdid not see their relationship develop to the point they would sleep together not once that I kind of but to continue was where I was lostThat aside the series itself is just Magnificent the drama suspensesex love hate mysterymurdertwist and turnsthis series had EVERTHING I loved it I really hope this author keeps up the Great work bc they have me as a Fan for Life I liked this book it was ood to hear from the my favorite Mob Boss I really liked the love scene between Selange and Alfonzo while they were in Italy that was hot My only complaint is that this book had to many monologs and not enough action I will #wait for the next book because I just know things will pick #for the next book because I just know things will pick LOVED IT Well the ladies et into it in this book betrayals are uncovered and the brothers find out they are related Even the Maria is finding love I was happy for her I felt her son behaved like an assI have to say the books are beginning to I felt her son behaved like an assI have to say the books are beginning to very preachy to me I would prefer much dialogue between the characters and a lot less rhetoricGlad to to see that Ari and Nico finally managed to et it together I like the action in the books so I continue to read the series I really want to see about relationship between Geo and Shandra They should The Gurkhas Daughter get a book to themselvesOn to book 8 This was definitely a transition book and many things happen Nicoets a peace of sorts and Alfonzo is still evolving into the Don The players in this Mafia family don t disappoint with their capacity for secrets mistakes transgressions forgiveness and most of all LOVE This ets a surprising 3 stars from me It s the first lower rating that I have i I was about to lose it during the ending I was happy that we had a moment of calm in this one I thought Selange wouldn t take the bait then I was hoping Alfonzo s phone let him know from jump what was Media and Politics in the Southern Mediterranean going on The mess with her and Geo is about toet Troublant contrat good I can t wait for him to catch up with her I hope Nico comes back around soon he s too important to not come through Not sure who took the robbery fall but I can t wait for things to kick off again and force Nico to come back Great read All I can say is WOW finished this one last night and can t seem to stop dreaming about these booksso you know when the author has you dreaming about the characters in a story it must beoodCan t wait for the next story to continue the ride with Alfonzo Selange and the rest of the family. Fia Kingpin Alfonzo's decision to eliminate one of his family members may cost him the woman he lovesLove and loyalties are tested Is trust enough when you're in love with a corrupt Mafia man or does the heart defy reason and decides based on fait. Or the dramatic ending but wasn t cool throughoutIt is still preachy in parts eg the comments re the Catholic church during the funeral Very public service announcement The Nico as Ari s co counsel scene was corny Also I was soooo The Damascened Blade (Joe Sandilands, glad to see the back of Shanda in Book 6 This thing with her dad and the disappearing act in this book was corny times 2 She couldn t just tell Selange what wasoing on Now I ll have was corny times 2 She couldn t just tell Selange what was The Damascened Blade (Joe Sandilands, going on Now I ll have endure Guiseppe trying to find her in Book 8 UghFull pages of song lyrics do not belong in serious novels I don t even entertain lyrics in fanfiction Skim SkimThe editing continues to baffle me The plural of friend is not friend s nor is the plural of boy boy s This is an ongoing problem Three dollar wordsets tossed around but from paragraph to paragraph we can t seem to Sds/Wuo, Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground Organization get consistent usage of the present or past tense It is distracting and should be fixed We still have issues with missing words and in my favorite laylie mixup Solange tells Sofie that she refuses to lay by omission Actually that made me smile lol But seriously we are 7 books in already This should not still be happeningSomeood things I REALLY liked the introduction of Alfonzo s mother as a mature sexual being Being a Cooking with Fire grandmother doesn t mean she s dead and she deserves some happiness It was cute to see Alfonzoet all protective Bruno sounds hot I hope he s The Invisible Dirty Old Man genuineLove the newfound relationship between Nico and his sisters and love that Nico is talking openly to his sons about what he doesBut what I REALLLLY love is the ending I was a little skeptical about whether it really would have needed to come to that I think it could have been fixed but let s roll with it as it s written We all know I have a rocky relationship with Selange but I alwaysive her credit where credit is due and that ending Selange passed that test with flying colors People talk about standing by their man but Selange walks the walk Being a mafia wife isn t all expensive clothes and nice jewelry When the shit hits the fan are you willing to hold it down with your man Do you stand by him even when you disagree Even when you think something he is about to do is heinous She did and I applaud her
