Book Review…HIT


I was never supposed to meet him, but one fateful night had him saving my life.

Now he thinks he owns me. I’m his to keep.

He’s ruthless, cold, and a killer, but something draws me to him anyway.

I know what he’s capable of. I know he was meant to kill me. And I know one wrong slip may make him change his mind about sparing my life.

But I want to test him, push him, be a part of his world.

I know I should be afraid. I know I should run. But something about Darragh has taken me over, and I don’t know how long I can resist . . .

A hitman.
A princess.
A forbidden romance.

All her life, Giuseppina Delarosa knew two things: what her father and brother did after dark was a secret, and her life was never her own. As the sole daughter of Don Delarosa’s clan, it was well known a marriage would secure the future of the family. But when she learns she’s to be wed to an infamous ally, Giuseppina has other plans.

Darragh O’Callaghan is good at exactly two things: not caring about anyone, and killing his enemies. The only Irish mafia in the city needs good enforcers to keep their borders, and Darragh does his job well. So he can’t understand why he screws it all up when a hit is placed on the Delarosa gang’s prime jewel: Giuseppina Delarosa.

One rainy night.
One decision not to kill.
One moment that changes everything.

Hit is a slow burn, enemies-to-lovers, dark mafia romance. It is book one in the Mafia Born Duet.
5 stars of DELIGHT
I could NOT put this books down.

Pina is an Italian mob princess. She is set to marry a mob boss in an alliance, joining two Italian mob families. Only Pina doesn’t want to. With the help of her brother, she escapes, only to jump from one mistake to another one. With the help of her new captor – Darragh she learns and grows. It is with his hand and his guidance that she steps into her adult life and understands the famiglia. And her part in it.

Darragh isn’t planning on keeping Pina alive, but something tugs at him. Instead of killing her like Sean told him, he decides to help her seek revenge on the mob. Darragh trains her, feeds, her and forms an alliance with her. Together they will take down who needs to be taken down and in the meantime, they will fall in love. Or will they?

This is a woven tale of a girl hidden away from the brutality of the mob and a mob hitman. Their story is fragile and romantic at the same time. Pina grows as a person with the help of Darragh and Darragh learns to love and trust again. Can the two forge the alliance they want or will it turn into an alliance of want?
