We are the Rossetti’s.
The exiled “sixth family” of the New York mafia. We’re the good guys.
People don’t fear us…much. They respect us.
The five of us? We’re the Brooklyn Brothers.
And we protect what’s ours.
After a gunshot wound to the chest, I died on an operating table. Then I came back to life. Yet the thing that’s going to take me down is a redheaded Irish bartender who has a pension for trouble and drinking me under the table. Ash Donahue is brave, beautiful, and scarily street wise. In fact, she’s the only woman I’ve ever met who seems remotely capable of handling the kind of baggage a man like me comes with.
Not to mention, she has secrets that could very well rival my own.
I’m a soldier, a warrior. That’s all I’ll ever be. No woman wants to be strapped with that for the rest of her life. But every time we remind ourselves why we’re completely wrong for each other, we end up tangled together in the stock room. Or on top of the bar. Or against a wall.
That all changes when I find out what brought her to my city. How could she not tell me her uncle is the Irish mob boss? And how am I supposed to protect her from him and my family from our countless enemies, all at the same time?
I love everything about Ash and Rome. He’s the ultimate possessive, filthy-mouthed alpha protector and exactly what Ash needed. She’s a total badass, a math whiz forced to work for the Irish mob and just desperate enough to escape their reach that she’ll skim to fund a new life. Their connection was instant but so many things kept getting in the way, the tension was off the charts. Their story is hot, suspenseful and everything I wanted. They’re adorable together but also hot as hell.
Melanie Munton is quickly becoming a favorite because whether it’s cowboys or big city mafia bosses, everything she writes comes to life on the page. Her stories always play like a movie in my head. I love her writing style so much and always want more. The dialogue is spot on and so realistic, I get lost in her stories. This one pulled me in from the first page. I couldn’t put it down and was so disappointed when it was over, but I did love the ending. Highly recommend. I received an ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
