“The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen
 
But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.
 
I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve
been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the
world to do it.
 
Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a
blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane,
snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games
 
Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths,
explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls
 
I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me.
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
Blood
In my heart, on my hands.
 
Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I.
REVIEW – I am still a relatively new reader of Cat’s work, but boy do i love it. Her characters are always so engaging but with this character development through the story and the romance she always manages to add a slice of danger to keep the reader on their toes.Mafia books are not really my style, but after reading this i am wanting to try more. I love how the mans world got knocked on a serious axis by the female lead, as sometimes we normally hear more about it all changing for the woman. But for Turo meeting Adriana means a whole lot is going to change for them both!!

Chicago Syndicate #6
Soraya Naomi
28th March 2017

A complete standalone.
A novel from the Chicago Syndicate world.

You don’t know me.
But that’s only because I don’t want you to.

I have the most lucrative job in the country as a hacker in the notorious underworld. I’ve built entire systems and destroyed evidence for career advancement while stealing and exploiting data for personal gain.
I’m the black hat hacker for the Chicago Syndicate and hold all the dirty secrets of the most powerful men in the U.S. in the palm of my hands, just a keystroke away from mass ruination.

However, no one knows my dirty secret, a decision from my past that’s just aching to blow up in my face and shatter my future. Especially when a certain wavy haired brunette begins to demand my attention with her odd ways and her carefree attitude.

She’s a woman who makes me go against everything I’ve ever believed.
A woman whom I’m forbidden from having my usual one-night stand with, even if she was available.
A woman whom I have to keep from getting herself killed, whether she likes it or not.

You don’t know me, but neither does she…yet.

Review – This book and a fresh and exciting storyline. Plenty of action with hot mafia men and the woman who gets under Henry’s skin.Henry may be a hacker, but he is no like other hackers i have seen represented, this man is power and intelligence and has a sizzling chemistry with Mary.This book can be read as a stand alone and it kept me hooked and intrigued by where Soraya was taking this story.

Run.
He told me to run. So I ran.
It turns out just because you run from something, doesn’t mean it can’t find you.
He’s coming for me.
He wants what I hold closest.
He wants to lie, manipulate and use me.
He wants me to betray him.
Rafael.
Leader of the Italian Mafia.
Love of my life.
Father of my child.
He’s going to make me do the unthinkable.
There is no way out.
I’m trapped and about to make the biggest mistake of my life.
I’m running full throttle towards an oncoming train, and there isn’t a single thing I can do to stop it.
I’m going to become what I was most afraid of.
A monster.
Review – Wow what a thrilling way to end this story. Tonnes of suspense and danger and a whole lot of unrequited love. You never know who you want to side with more, but your heart will to a degree always believe Julie did the right thing, i know i did. Loved seeing more from certain characters, you will know who i mean if you are a Bella Jewel fan like me. One more thing i need Celia to have her own story Bella Jewel with a certain man with a name beginning with V.Great round to an intense,sexy and dangerous story

Synopsis

She was a ghost, in heels.

She was there, then she wasn’t.

She would play with my emotions like a well-played guitar.

Then she would disappear. Making me want to strangle her.

Maybe she wasn’t a ghost, maybe she was the giver of sin. Because we sinned every time we touched, every time she was near.

Her lips were shaped like a heart, deceiving you at every word.

Her body was created straight from my fantasies, one I craved to bend to my will.

Her heart, well, who the hell knew. She kept that shit locked tight.

And I couldn’t find the key.

Review – This book is filled with such powerful romance and intense suspense i loved it. The two main characters are such surprises to us the reader and to each other. I got very caught up in this story and could not put it down. I loved the raw passion and the thrill of danger from the mafia side of the story, fir st book in a new series and i urgently need book 2 to read more.

“It is not love that defines us, Julietta. It is love that destroys us.”I’m just a normal girl.

Or so you would think.
I’ve never thought of myself as anything different.
Until I met him.
He doesn’t think I’m normal.
He thinks I’m special.
Special enough to be in his life.
Special enough to enter his world.
Special enough for his bed.
Rafael Lencioni. Dangerous. Beautiful. Terrifying.
My story is the one that’s never told.
I’m not the daughter.
I’m not the wife.
I’m not a sister or a mother.
I’m not his enemy and I’m not his friend.
I’m not who you think I am.
So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.
Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.
I have to change who I am.
I have to shut down my heart.
I have to accept my place.
My body belongs to him.
My heart isn’t permitted to.
Those are his rules.
But rules were made to be broken…right?
Review – This book is everything to me it has made me an torrent of emotions. I adore Bella Jewel and her writing and with this book she created an amazing story. Bella has created a story that focuses on a woman in a very unusual relationship, kudos for such a great idea i have not read a mafia romance story focusing on this ever. So this story is the usual Bella Jewel sexy-ness like seriously smoking hot between Julietta and Rafe. Rafe is a total alpha mafia boss, would not expect any less, but he is full of surprises for us the reader and the story and Julietta. Julietta such a strong willed character at the start of the story i love that, but then she turned into someone i was not keen on, i knew why she was in love, but her strong natured-ness i loved at the beginning of the book disappeared, i am glad to say it returned throughout the story.The ending to this book OMG so many surprises and i need to read more i am not complete until i know the how, where and whys of this story.
