Sexy computer hacker Mia struggles to break free of her ruthless father's Mafia ties...but she can't resist the powerful and seductive Nico, who will stop at nothing to possess her. With their families locked in a brutal war for control of the city, Mia and Nico enter into a forbidden game.

    "AN EXCITING & STEAMY BLOCKBUSTER"

    An awesome action-packed story that has great characters, passion, sex, revenge, duty, loyalty, honor, deceit, warring Families, vengeance.. and love which are all blended together in this gripping book. It's a cross between the Sopranos and Romeo and Juliet - thankfully with a happier ending. Set amongst the glittering Casinos of Las Vegas are rival Bosses vying for power and, at the center of it all, is one powerful Boss who rules with an iron fist.. but who tries to stay more within the gray lines than the black ones.

    Capo Nico Toscani is ruthless, dangerous and well respected - he has been consumed with revenge for his Father's cold blooded murder 10 years previously but a feisty sassy sexy hacker derails his thoughts of the feud and complicates his plans. Unfortunately her last name is Cordano - the same surname as his Father's murderer and they go from attracted enemies to forbidden lovers.. and Nico must choose between revenge and love but the choice isn't that simple.. because the Cordano family are out for his blood.

    Mia's independently trying to make it on her own - away from her dysfunctional dangerous family and their Mafia connections but when a new job backfires and she comes face to face with handsome charismatic Nico Toscani her life will never be the same. Because the sexual tension between them is smouldering and it doesn't take long for lust to steer the couple into uncharted dangerous waters.. waters that's hiding deadly enemies, twists and tense undercurrents.

    This has GOT to be one of the best Mafia stories I've listened to.. made especially pleasurable by Aiden Snow's sexy voice which switches from female to male characters with ease and clarity and when he spoke Italian.. phewee I melted. There's a handsome, sexy, dirty-talking, possessive, protective Alpha who locks horns, and hearts, with a strong-willed Mafia Princess.. and sex, drama, angst, tension, bloodshed, passion and love follows. Dual POV plus another character too.

    Worth a credit? Sarah Castille has merged strong yet vulnerable characters with non-stop action, steam, suspense and a passionate love story where the H/H will fight WITH each other and fight FOR each other. Very creditworthy.. I want to listen to it all over again and can't wait for the next book in the series.

    "ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟"

    I loved this book. The narration is superb and the story is compelling and hot. Mia was strong and I loved it while Nico was just a girls dream. Hot,strong ,protective ,rich and gifted in many areas. I wanted to get to the end to find out who gets what they deserve but I didn't want it to end. Just a great listen

    "A must, MUST read!!"
    Would you listen to Nico: A Mafia Romance again? Why?

    YEEEEES! A thousand times yes. This is one of those books you would become engrossed with while reading. There was so much action and suspense from the get go. The passion and sexuality in the book was amazing. it was not over done and had you wanting more for them. I couldn't put the book down! The narrator was nothing short of amazing and a perfect fit of course. I'm curious to see how the others in this series will be

    "Swoon-worthy Romance!!!"

    Not everyone likes a good mafia story, but if you do, NICO is definitely one for you!
    Nico Toscani has seen the good and bad to life. He grew up with his mother being the mistress for his father and his mother's death brought him into the family that didn't truly accept him. His father loved him, so when he was killed, Nico was determined to be strong enough to get his revenge.
    Mia Cordano was determined to stay away from her family's business. She had been the "black sheep" of the family and she liked it that way. She became a highly sought after hacker and she helped to keep people & their businesses SAFE. This wasn't the life a Mafia Princess was suppose to live. And her father was constantly angered by her choices.

    Mia was hired to do a job for Nico (without Nico's knowledge.) She doesn't realize who she is working for. Their families have unpleasant history. So when Nico & Mia are thrown together, it sets off a series of events that puts both families in jeopardy.

    This story keeps you intrigued. It has the bad mafia, dirty cops (and clean ones), hackers, enforcers, drugs, and lots of food! There is danger, kidnapping, semi-stalking, and the pushy friend!

    Nico wants to make things better but no one wants to follow his vision, so it puts the things that he cares about most in jeapordy. Not everyone can face the challenges that Nico & Mia had to face and those challenges may be strong enough to pull them apart (especially if her father has anything to do with it!)

    Definitely a must read/listen... The audio version of this book is fantastic.

    "Great Narration and Great Story!!"

    I loved this book. Except for her incorrect usage of "Hit the Mattress" and the h calling the H "Mr. Mob Boss" all the time, the story was great.

    "Proper Mafia Wife is to be Seen not Heard"

    Warning: This book does have violence to women

    I love mafia stories including this one. It's based on the family dynamics and rivalry between the Toscani's and Cordano's. The head of the Cordano family is ruthless not only in mafia business but to his own family. He beats his wife and girls; and his son cowards to him. It was disturbing that a husband/father can be so cruel to his own family.

    Nico Toscani also has a reputation for being ruthless in business and well respected but he doesn't mistreat women.

    Mia Cordano finished college and started her own computer hacking business in an attempt to get away from the mafia life. According to her dad he allowed her to do this because it would make her more marketable as a mafia wife.

    Mia has a job that goes wrong and it causes her to run into Nico. There is an attraction between them but their relationship is a slow burn since their families are enemies.

    This book has action, suspense, mystery, intrigue, romantic build up and good sex.

    I have Sarah Castille's Against the Ropes series which I adore so I didn't hesitate to purchase Nico and Sarah did not disappoint.

    Aiden Snow...Aiden, Aiden, Aiden...Oh how I melted when hearing your Italian. Aiden was captivating. He is one of my favorite performers.

    Worth a Credit/$$ Absolutely. I'm looking forward to the next book.

    "BIG GUNS"
    Any additional comments?

    Two people, giving everything they have toward their goals. Opposite goals. Opposite families.

    Mia is trying desperately to cut all ties to her Mafia abusive family as she trumps the hacking world. Nico is using all his power to claim his right to head a splitting mafia dynasty. Both are playing in deadly arenas.

    Can their forbidden affair combine their strengths and finally achieve their desperate goals?

    "I adored this book!!"

    I love GOOD, Mafia/Mob hot sex romances but they are kinda scarce. This book I found after being all sad after finishing Salvatore & I wasn't too hopeful but it was as good if not better!!!

    "I didn't want it to end"

    This is a mafia romance with an ethical mob boss. (it could happen)It also has a mafia princess with a brain and a backbone. ( This could happen too) Of course, this couple is made up of enemy families, kinda like a Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliette. Except in this world, the couple gets a HEA. So, you get it all, a hero who is a sexy alpha with a heart and a strong Heroine with a Brain . What's not to love? I listened straight through. Definitely worth a credit!
