Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Parker S. Huntington comes a steamy, slow-burn love story full of second-chance romance.
 

“If ever I am gifted the opportunity to betray you, I’ll take it. If life hands me the chance to destroy you, I will. Today. Tomorrow. Ten years from now. I will always seek revenge. And you will never stop looking over your shoulder.”
 

Ten years ago, I crushed Damiano De Luca’s heart, vowing false promises I never delivered.
 

The revenge? Didn’t happen. The destruction? As if I could. Betrayal? Not. A. Chance.
 

We were 18 when I left, taking my secrets with me. Now at 28, there’s no trace of the jaded mafia prince with the protective streak.
 

He’s crueler. Colder. More calculated than ever. And he’s glaring at me from a funeral pew, looking at me and my wedding ring like we should be the ones buried six feet under.
 

The war is back on, but I’m not that teenage girl anymore. This time, there will be blood. And it won’t be mine.
 

Damiano De Luca is a full-length stand-alone novel in The Five Syndicates mafia romance series.

Renata and Damiano's second chance!

Damiamo DeLuca by Parker S. Huntington is an incredible second chance at love. I love how the author wrote these characters and gave them their second chance at love after waiting 10 years. This book is both a standalone listen and a completion of Renata. The story has some unexpected twists which I loved and did not expect. I love it when an author surprises me.
Zachary Webber and Desiree' Ketchum were magical bringing the characters to life. They really added to the book with their emotions. Desiree' really impressed me with her sassiness and spunk for Renata, and Zachary for Damiano. Its an outstanding listen!

Highly Recommend!

I loved the relationship that the characters shared. How after so many years they still had such an intense connection and that Damien was so confident that they belonged and would end up together.
I liked how the majority of the book was based around the main characters love story (and this author especially knows how to write great romances) but there was also the mob drama going in the background that kept it a little suspenseful and provides some extra drama.
And I’m a sucker for a HEA and this author does an amazing job at that as well. Highly recommend this one!
Both narrators did an amazing job and made the characters come to life. Their voices were authentic and didn’t feel forced. I especially love Zachary Webber’s voice, I’m pretty sure I could listen to him read the dictionary all day and be perfectly happy.

Mafia Love Just So Stunning!

Damiano De Luca (A Second Chance Mafia Romance). The Five Syndicates Series, Book 6 should be listened to after the prequel Renata Vitali as it gives you a glimpse into the lives of Renata and Damiano De Luca. I absolutely love the characters and are drawn to them. A perfect twist swrls through the pages with a dose of mystery infused. The narrative is captivating and writing style is crafty and belletristic. I absolutely loved the epilogue and how it ended.


Narators Zachary Webber, Desireé Ketchum performance was impeccable. I absolutely loved everything about it. Perfect Intonation as well as their reflections. A perfect duo naration. I absolutely love these two narrators and I think they fit the characters and genre perfectly.

One of the best second chance and mafia romances!

Parker Huntington keeps wowing me after every story she writes. Zachary Webber and Desireé Ketchum did an amazing job narrating Damiano De Luca. De Luca is super charged and utterly addictive character! I loved and couldn’t get enough of the angsty and sexually charged story! Second chance storyline and a mafia romance? Yup, a few of my favorite things!

I’ve just started seeing Miss Ketchum in a few different narrations. I’ve enjoyed her narrations so much thus far and I keep see clearly that she is going to quickly move up to a favorite female narrator. Of course, Mr. Webber was enjoyable to listen. I’m really not sure this man can narrate anything that isn’t pure gold. De Luca was pure gold!

Amazing Story! Outstanding Narration!

This is the sixth book in The Five Syndicat Series, a mafia romance. This story can be listened as a standalone, but believe me, you don't want to miss one book in the Series! Renata Vitali, book 5, is the prequel to this story. Damiano and Renata's story is a great second chance to love. They are both great characters, strong, and powerful. Their chemistry is sizzling. The storyline is filled with mystery and unexpected twists and turns. I love the Epilogue! Now, I can't wait for the next book in this amazing Series! Zachary Webber and Desireé Ketchum did an outstanding job with the narration. I love their voices together. The duet narration is really well done. Desireé Ketchum is a new narrator and she is truly amazing! I highly recommend this story and Series.

Damn Good

I love the story line. There are surprises in this book that I didn’t see. The Narrators are suburb. They are able to connect to the main characters so that you feel their emotions in the book and they are able to do different voices to other characters.

Even bettter on audio.

Parker Huntington is a new to me author and I am HOOKED!!!!

I love her writing style and her storytelling. And was captivated by her characters. Ren and Damian stole a piece of my heart. They were two lost young teens in a world they didn't have a choice but learn to survive in. And when they were pretty much thrown together they found something in each other they didn't know they needed or know they were missing. And Huntington did a beautiful job telling the story.

This book is full of angst, twists and turns you didn't see coming, and sexual chemistry off the chats. And even though Ren is vulnerable at times. I love that her strength shines bright throughout this story. I can't wait to dive into other books by this author.

The narrators brought this book to life. I loved the book when I read it on my e-reader. But I really loved it when I listened to it.

Brilliantly Performed!

Narration is perfection, but I would have enjoyed even more if Damiano's dialogue had been longer. It is after all Damiano's story, right?

Great storyline, except that for a Mafia related genre, there is no thrilling suspense or action, that along with the epilogue had me change my opinion from a 5 star to a 4 star. But this is however, just my personal opinion.

It’s ok

It’s ok, found it frustrating to listen too as I had just finished the previous book and found it was repetitive of the previous books chapters.
Narrators were good - especially Zachary Webber.
