Publisher's Summary

Ciro Donati was many things:

My father's most valued and trusted soldier.

My brother's best friend and second in command.

And the only man I would give up everything for.

I fell hard for the Mafioso at the tender age of 11. This beast of a man who I knew made people disappear - and probably enjoyed every second of it - was also the 16-year-old boy who had picked me up after I'd fallen flat on my face during my dance recital and told me I was the best ballerina he'd ever seen. He's watched over me, protected me like I was the most precious thing in the world to him.

And then he sent me away.

Scarlett Vitucci was many things:

The daughter of the biggest Cosa Nostra boss from New York to Chicago.

The sister of the man I would gladly take a bullet for.

And the only woman I would ever love.

Sending her away was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I didn't deserve her or her love. For three years I stayed away, ignoring the gnawing ache that her absence left in my chest. Now, she was back and fighting what I felt for her was impossible. Letting her go had been a huge mistake.

One I would never repeat.

Great Low Angst Mafia Story

This is my first Terri Anne Browning book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved Scarlett and Tori's relationship. Ciro was totally alpha but soft when it came to Scarlett. The narrator's were very good. Looking forward to the other characters' books.

What did you love best about Defying Her Mafioso?

Scarlett and Victoria's relationship, I loved how they were always there for each other. The trouble they get into at the beginning was also fun to watch.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Adrian, I can't wait to listen to his story. I love alpha men and from what we see in this story he's all alpha!

What about Chip Hurley and Violet Strong ’s performance did you like?

They both had a good tone and changed their voices accordingly.

Any additional comments?

Overall this was an enjoyable low angst light mafia read.

Good Story

This was a really good mafia story. Loved Coro and Scarlet as a couple. Their pull is strong and their chemistry is hot. Love the closeness with the twins. Scarlet is such a bad-a$$. Narrators did a good job. Can’t wait for the next book.

Winner? NOT!

The male narrator was awesome, and fit the character well, as did the female narrator. I found Scarlett spoiled and abrasive, and I stopped reading when she punched her brother in the face for not taking care of her sister better. A sister who is an adult and knows very well that she has health problems and what to do about them. Enough already...

Continuation of Angels Halo MC

Although this is not the next book in Angel’s Halo MC, the story runs along the same time line.

I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next installment of the series.

A LIGHT BEAUTIFUL MAFIA LOVE STORY

We have Ciro Donati who is the mafia boss' most trusted Mafioso' (I'm saying it that way as we don't see any assassination in DEFYING HER MAFIOSO) & best friends with the son of the Boss the brother of Scarlett Vitucci, the woman he has loved since she was a teenager but he didn't think he was his enough for her.
So what does he do, he gets her dad to send her away to Italy, did it do any good??? Of course not we see how much he actually loves her & has done since she was a teenager also.
And yes there's humour, frustration & deep emotion.

Another great book by Terri Anne Browning.
And the narrators Chip Hurley & Violet Strong were pretty good, liked their narration
