Isabel Bonetti -

One minute I'm mourning the sudden death of my father, and the next, I'm getting calls from a lawyer saying they needed to read me my father's will.
As far as I know, my father didn't have much to leave. He was a blue-collar worker, through and through.

Or so I thought.

Everything topples down at once, the inheritance I'm left with and the truth about what my father did, but the biggest shock of all was finding out he'd married me off to a complete stranger without my consent.

By the time I show up at my supposed husband's nightclub, I'm determined to leave with divorce papers signed, but nothing can prepare me for the man that awaits me on the other side of those doors.

Giovanni Masseria -

My father has done a lot of messed up stuff, but marrying me off to Charles Bonetti's daughter, a complete stranger, may take the cake. I didn't even know old Bonetti had a daughter and I want nothing to do with her or this marriage, until I'm told what staying married to her would mean for the empire I'm slowly trying to build. There's no harm in staying married a little longer if it means I'll cash out on those promises. I decide that I'll cut ties with her as soon as that's done.

That is, until she barges into my office demanding a divorce.

I wasn't sure what I'd expected her to be like, but it certainly wasn't . . . this.

A week ago, I didn't know of her existence, and now, I can't seem to escape her presence anywhere I go.

She doesn't belong in this world and I know this won't end well for either of us, but I can't seem to stop reminding her who I am.

Her husband.

I love this world author Claire Contreras has created! ~ Didi – Simply Love Books



I have fallen in love with this series. Alpha men who fall for strong women, just the right amount of smexy times, intrigue, humor and the darkness that reading a mafia romance comes with. I love that while the story has a lot of moving parts, the actual romance doesn’t get lost. There is a lot of time where Giovanni and Isabel are actually together and talk to each other, like get to know each other talk. Something that seems to be missed in many romances I’ve read lately.
Giovanni intrigued me in Because You’re Mine, I totally fell in love with him in this book. A notorious playboy who found what he didn’t know he needed in Isabel. Their chemistry is there from the start and it never goes away.

There are definitely some twists and turns in the book and it kept me reading non-stop. I love this world the author has created and cannot wait for Gio’s sister’s book to come out in August, I hope it’s not the last of the series because there are a several secondary characters who I would love to see books for.

I read this via Kindle Unlimited but I will be purchasing all the books in the series.
