Publisher's summary

A new stand-alone dark mafia romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author, Siobhan Davis.

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it - in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.

One that doesn’t involve him.

Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.

Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.

This is a full-length stand-alone novel with no cliff-hanger and an HEA. For listeners who enjoy brother's best friend, second chance, dark mafia, forbidden romance.

Forbidden to Love

Wow what an epic book! This is a stand-alone Mafia Dark Romance. It is the second book in the Mazzone Mafia series. This book follows Natalia and Leo as their love starts and grows. They both were drawn to each other from the very beginning. However they could never truly allow anything to ever happen between them. She is the daughter of a Don and Leo is just starting out under Don Mazzone. She has to remain a virgin until her wedding. As a daughter of a Don she is promised to align two mafia families. This is a action packed second chance romance. I loved ever moment. Can’t wait for the next book. Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher did a phenomenal job narrating in duet style.

Forbidden to Love

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. We're there points I wanted to strangle the heroine for being stupid? Yes. We're there points I wanted to strangle our Hero for being an idiot? Yes. We're there points that were so identifiable that they moved me to tears? Also yes. Finally, was their love so epic, romantic, and enduring that it made my little heart swoon? Definitely Yes. Great book with all of the feels and good narration. You can't go wrong.

Brilliant Story & Listen🎧 Mesmerizing & Intense!

This mafia romance novel is absolutely mesmerizing, once I started it I just had to keep going, needing to know what happened next and nothing else around me mattered but what was going on in the book. Siobhan Davis quickly became one of my favorite authors, the depth and complexity of the characters and storylines she creates is intriguing, as is the web she weaves bringing it all together. The world building and character development is phenomenal, it is easy to follow along and know who the key players are in the mafia world she created. Her descriptive details bring you alongside the characters, allowing you to see what they see, feel what they feel and know what they are thinking, characters that are easy to relate to, connect with and care about. Natalia Mazzone is the only daughter of a NY mob boss and it is her duty to do as her father says, including who she will marry. In her father’s world, women not only do what they are told, but they are married off to strengthen a family’s power. Natalia knows she will not get to marry for love but that does not stop her from falling in love with someone she can not have, he brothers best friend. Leonardo “Leo” Messina has been Mateo Mazzone’s best friend since they were kids, the two shared a bond and worked well together, Leo being his most trusted person. He always had a soft spot for Natalia though she was completely off limits, but he still cared and looked out for her. He and Mateo were not happy with who her father chose for her to marry, he was pure evil and Natalia learns just how evil he could be. This is an amazing dark mafia forbidden romantic suspense, the story is brilliantly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a wonderful second chance romance. My heart broke for both Natalia and Leo several times throughout the book, but the love they shared was too powerful to eve die. Superbly done Siobhan Davis, thank you for another amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett were the perfect cast to bring these characters and their storAnd for the fabulous narration, Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett were the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. Their voices worked well together, and they made an awesome team. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, giving each a voice that suited the character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable and just as I picture them to sound. Sarah Puckett captured Natalia’s every strength and her every emotion and Michael Gallagher did the same with Leo, both played the badasses that they were. They were great performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. These two mega talented voice artists are a pleasure to listen to, and their narration enhances an already amazing story to another level. Thank you for another brilliant listen.

Mazzone Mafia ♥️

Audio Review:
Forbidden to Love (Mazzone Mafia, Book 2) brings a unforgettable story fruitful with angst, darkness and a world of mafia. The writing style is captivating and compelling. Characters are entertaining. Heartbreak that is hard to forget. I loved this story so much and hated the heartwretching times as tear's drop like raindrops fall. This author wrote a addictive story drenched with words that flow to the very end. I absolutely loved the ending.

Michael Gallagher, Sarah Puckett duet narration is utterly profound. Sarah Puckett is a favorite narrator of mine and this performance exceeded my expectations. Her unmarred performance brought this heartbreaking story to reality. Her portrayal of Natalia was a high caliber performance, her inflection is smooth and her tone adjusts with Natalia's emotions. Michael Gallagher was the perfect choice to portray the Leo and the male characters. His inflection gives off an aura of mafia.

4.5 Stars

I love reading/listening to Siobhan Davis's books. They are favorites of mine. But this one I disliked. Absolutely D.I.S.L.I.K.E.D. But is was excellent. It's a brother's best friend, second chance, forbidden, mafia romance with all the feels from heart break to heart soaring. I won't tell why I disliked the storyline so I don't spoil it. But this is a good book in the series and I can't wait for the next one.

Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher are excellent narrators. Their performances were perfection.

Hot ,intense, Mafia story

Siobhan Davis Forbidden to Love, left me breathless. This action packed mafia story had me on the edge of my seat.
She captured all the raw emotions between Natalia and Leo and their forbidden love. Natalia has always loved Leo, her brother's best friend, but it is forbidden. Their torment, their love for each other, is forever.
Natalia is an innocent 17 year old girl, is resigned to her fate, to marry her father's choice. As the story develops, Natalia transforms into the strong, independent woman, who makes her own choices
Twists and turns, secrets, who to trust? There is a traitor in their midst.
The suspense, the brutality, the self doubts, the fears, loss , and the stolen moments of love with Leo makes this story so exceptional.
Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher narration is perfection. They bring depth to each character. I can feel each moment of emotion, anguish, anger, torment, throughout the story. Thank you for bringing thIs story to life.

Another great addition to the Series!

This is the second book in the Mazzone Mafia series, a Dark Mafia Romance. Natalia and Leo's forbidden romance is captivating! The storyline is breathtakingly well written, intricate, and intense, filled with secrets, action, danger, and unpredictable twists and turns. Natalia is beautiful, strong, smart, and determined. Leo is handsome, protective, and enigmatic. They are perfect together. This is an excellent second chance to love. Their story is tragic, and beautiful. The world building is intricate and enthralling. The supporting characters are intriguing. Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher did an outstanding job with the narration. If you like Dark Mafia Romance, this series is definitely for you. I enjoyed it, and I HIGHLY recommend it. Looking forward to listening to Scared to Love, the next book in the series. Siobhan Davis never disappoints. #TheFlock

4 STARS

I am not a huge fan of books that go from past to present but I really liked this one. Having met both characters in the first book it made me even less patient waiting to get to part 2. I felt bad for Nat and Leo especially seeing firsthand how hard it was for them to stay apart when growing up so close together. Many ups and downs will keep your emotions on a roller coaster ride.
Narration was duet which is my favorite!

OH THE FEELS!!!!!

✨A TOP LISTEN OF 2022✨

There is so much I could say about this story! I took 2 FULL PAGES of notes! Basically Natalia is in love with Leo, who is best friends with her brother, and very low on the mafia scale. She is basically a mafia princess so she has been promised to another man that is an heir to a territory. And Leo is in love with her too..... but they can not be together. There are so many things that happen over a span of 13 or 14 years that keeps them apart before they both finally give in and go after what they want. But it is not without risk, and they both know this!

There is so much that happens, that my heart was breaking over and over again. And there was a time when I felt sorry for Leo... and another where I was like "he made his bed" ..... but then he turned all super swoony!!! And I couldn't help but love him for her! The man that she ends up marrying had lost his wife in a car crash and needed a wife to take care of his twin boys. The bond that they had was so fantastic! It was really heart warming to read about! I just loved everything about this book! I don't think that I have one bad thing to say about it! And the narration really brought the characters to life! Sarah and Michael nailed it with these characters!
