Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best seller Claire Contreras comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel...

When my sister asked me to take a course for her while she went out of town for work, I reluctantly agreed. I wasn't expecting to step into a university auditorium filled with overactive libidos lusting after the professor. And I certainly wasn't expecting to become one of those women myself, but there's something about Lorenzo Costello that makes him irresistible. He's the kind of man mothers warn their daughters about - mysterious, gorgeous, experienced, wild - and for some crazy reason he wants me. 

I should run far away and save myself from the impending heartache. So why am I racing toward him? I’m totally going to get burned. A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed. He'll make ashes of me.

Because You're Mine is NOT a dark romance! It's sexy and will keep you listening.

It was ok.

I said it’s ok because it’s not the type of story I normally look for. I like my romances with a longer time line and not insta love/lust. The concept is sweet and it has its ups and downs. I’m sorry if this seems nit picky but I would have liked hearing from the male character’s point of view a bit more and, as stated before, a longer time frame. That being said, the voice actors did a fabulous job and I’d recommend this for those who enjoy the more basic love stories. I probably won’t listen to this again but I also don’t feel like it was a waste of time or money.

The Mafia world.

This book introduced me to the life of a mafia family, the good, the bad, and the ugly! The is an element of mystery but you do not lose the romance involved in the book. Cat is determined to make her own way in life. She is not interested and hand outs or riding on the tails of her family name. She has found her place in the world of dance and she has perfected her talent. Then you have Lorenzo and he is everything Cat should hate but she does not. They have instant chemistry. I liked watching their story unfold and seeing how they over came their worlds constantly colliding.

Overall 3.75 stars

I really enjoyed the beginning and if I had to rate the first half of the book I would say a solid 4 stars. Lorenzo is the kind of alpha I love! I didn't mind the insta-attraction and as the story unfolds we see that it's been years in the making. The heroine was likable up until the last half of the book where she would not stop crying over everything. The ending dragged for me and I wasn't all that invested at that point. I'm not sure why but it sort of lost me. There is one important scene where an important secondary character contradicts himself in the same chapter and that is one of my pet peeves. If he wanted it to be her why would he say he loved someone else? Also I never understood the way the mafia in this story worked. Were they rival families? Did we only meet one family? Despite my struggles I'm glad I finished it because I wanted to see how it ended for the H and h.
Narration was 4 stars

GREAT BOOK! On the edge of my seat!

This was surprisingly a great listen! Loved the plot and all its twists! Usually with romance novels you kinda know what’s going to happen next, but not this one. I was at work on the edge of my seat listening dying to know what would happen next.
I’ll definitely be listening to more from this author.

Really Good!s

Lots of action, surprises and romance. I learned lots about the mafia and ballet in this story. Family ties and their growing relationship make this a great book
