Sinful Kisses by Emily Bowie lived up to the title and then some more. It had complex twists and delicious edge. I was completely captivated by the story line and the characters. Such a devious combination of sexy, adrenaline filled and heartfelt moments.
Romeo Mancini has been exiled to a pig farm after his father and one of the most powerful dons in mafia was killed by the Rossis. He wants revenge. He needs out of this grim life. And kidnapping Gina Rossi after their paths cross unexpectedly under complicated circumstances is the best plan he can think of. He needs to make her fall in love with her before the families hunt him down.
The plot is much more thick and intense than the summary or the blurb. Romeo and Gina are enemies. Their families are enemies. Romeo has wanted Gina for a long time from afar. But she is the perfect mafia princess with pristine records and pride. And Romeo is the wicked sin with his dangerous ways. Now the accidents have put them together. And I was at the edge of my seat as Romeo navigated through the lies, the deceptions, the secrets, the action packed plans and the most important, their feelings. It started as a vengeance but slowly Romeo became obsessed with Gina. And he is so possessive and alpha! Gina found herself in a difficult situation. She couldn’t trust Romeo no matter the story he weaves. And when the truths come out, she found her heart to be divided. Falling for the enemy is never easy and it was a minefield of twists. But they have beautiful chemistry and the emotions were flowing freely. I loved the steamy and angsty balance so so much. And the author kept the suspense till the last page.
If you love mafia romance, a swoony antihero and a fierce yet sweet heroine..Sinful Kisses by Emily Bowie is for you.
