Publisher's Summary

Dante

My life is a tale of betrayal. I killed so many because they betrayed our cause, because they betrayed the Outfit. A hypocrite. A liar. A murderer. That’s what I am.

Five times I betrayed the Outfit. With my blood I made a vow to our cause, swore my life to it, promised to put the Outfit first. Above all else. Five times I chose a woman over the good of the Outfit. I betrayed my father. My vow. My men. You reap what you sow. Would my betrayals destroy everything I swore to protect?

Valentina

On our wedding day, I made a vow to stand by Dante’s side. In good and in bad times. To love him through it all.

Growing up in the mafia, I knew the challenges in our life would be numerous. I never expected them to tear at the very base of our family, of our existence.

Dante is the Outfit

This is a great overview of life in the Chicago Outfit with special focus into the thoughts of Dante and how he handles being a Capo and all the responsibilities that go with that position. It takes in dealings with the New York Famiglia as well as the Las Vegas Camorra. Strong characters and life changing events with underlying to die for romance. What more could you ask for. Enjoyed the story and wanted it to continue. I loved reading the book and enjoyed that the audio version brings it all to life. Narration was good. Worth the time and the credit. Can't wait for the rest of Cora Reilly's books to be available on Audible.

It was okay

I enjoy this type of story, and I love this author, however, the male narrator was distracting because of the way he over pronounced every name. It was quite annoying to me and took some of the enjoyment out of the story for me.

❤️❤️

Love the storyline so much, we get to see Remos and Serafinas story from the other POV and why Dante had Scuderi as his 2nd for TOO LONG A TIME.

great love story

They say in life its all about the journey ......Val and Dante have a journey that spans over a decade ...Dante is the Capo who no longer feels worthy to be loved after all in his eyes as capo he had done unspeakable things in the mafia......He recently lost his first wife Carla ... Then he is pressured to marry again in walks Val ... she longs to be wanted and loved ..... She is Chosen to fill the position in hopes that it will be a role to play ,,, Lets just say they get more than what they bargained for .... lol... and more than they ever hoped for ... the narration by Connor Crais and Ava Lucas is five star Stellar ...
