    Good, but a bit long winded and repetitive.What s a small town girl from Iowa to do in the big city Obviously keep reminding the viewer that she s a small town girl from Iowa now in the big city Despite the constant reminders, this story is pretty darn good The characters are flawed but still realistic, and I enjoyed the story s flow The final chapters after the big climax seemed to falter, but it did not take much from the overarching story.

    This book had me at the title What Sadie Black also accomplished was making me root for Luka and Ciara I love a bad boy, so perhaps I was biased from the start Oh, and I laughed my butt off at the beginning when Ciara went to dinner with her small town boyfriend.The secondary characters moved the story all the better, Lukas father was well rounded, and had he mafia flair that I love and sometimes doesn t get during mafia novels Toward the end, I was concerned that Ciara would give in to her earl [...]

    Love it I was so not liking Ciara in the beginning She just seem selfish and too much ambition even if it means hurting or destroying someone else s lineage But I am highly anticipating the next ebook.

    REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED ON on 1 2 16 Full disclosure I received an ARC for an honest review.Before I begin my review, I would like to make a comment on the tagline Mafia Romance Yes this book is a romance, and the mafia is involved, but in all of the mafia romances I ve ever read the hero is a Don or a son of a Don, an enforcer or somehow directly involved inside the mob That is not the case in this book As a HUGE fan of mafia romances, it surprised me but it didn t bother me But I do think tha [...]

    Great storyline It was as a great storyline with great exciting characters Kinda predictable but the slow start kinda helps with that, plus I love how the female lead is strong and independent AND open to love in the book.

    I received this for an honest review I have read several of Sadie Black s books and I can honestly say not one has disappointed me She truly is an amazing author When I read stories I like to look at the bigger picture in the story This story is about choses, love, devotion, sacrifice, and doing the right thing Sometimes in life we need to look at the bigger picture What might seem to be the right thing at the time might not truly be what is right.Ciara Simmons a small girl from a small town of [...]

    I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.I really enjoyed this book as well as the characters This book being a mafia romance was different from the other stories I read from Sadie Black It was intriguing, but still able to captivate your interests I thought it was interesting how Luka Belmonte and Ciara Simmons met I wish there was storyline into developing romance between Luka and Ciara when they declared their love for each other, but I think there were feelings with Luka than C [...]

    I got a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I loved this book The story was good and kept up throughout the whole book, not just the beginning and the end like alot of books The two main characters were similar, in the sense that they were very driven individuals, but with very different aims.I was a bit unsure of Ciara at first, she was so determined to have her career at the cost of everything else in life, including finding love Luka was the typical party boy who believed he co [...]

    I was given this book as an ARC And asked to give my honest opinion on it, and here it is.I think the book has an intriguing storyline and I was expecting it from this author due to her talent I really liked how Luka and Ciara met then progress slowly even though there was instant attraction it wasn t instant love and felt realistic There wasn t much history about Ciara however, she was a journalist attempting to get a hot story on Luka, the hottest playboy running for mayor Luka father was may [...]

    A Real WinnerThis was a really good story with so much promise.I really loved the beginning when the hero decides to turn over a new leaf and leave all his vices behind.We get that this man comes from a successful family who he later finds out is connected.During this story you will get a real human side of this man Luka when he finds out that all that seems good is not.Then he runs into the woman of his heart Ciara,who starts out plotting his down fall and later has a change of heart.This is a [...]

    My rating is actually 3.5 out of 5 Bad boy turns good mayoral candidate Wants to honor family name but finds out the family name is mob connected Will he continue the mob connection or server ties Falls in love for the first time wants to commit to a relationship only to find that love could be his downfall.Good girl ambitious to make a name for herself in journalism She is determine to let nothing stand in her way not a marriage proposal or her first time falling in love Will she let her ambiti [...]

    There are many books that you read, and you know how it is going to end at the beginning of the book This book, I had no idea what was going to happen, but I had to keep reading to find out Ciara is a journalist that has never put any man before her job Luka is a past playboy coke user that has changed his stripes as he is nning for mayor of New York Luka is Ciara s ticket to becoming a real journalist in the city, but can she do it to him Everything would be just fine, if the mafia was not invo [...]


    Michelle

    As a Sadie Black hardcore fan, I am kinda of biased but I liked the male main character As a fervorous reader, I kind of get let down if I don t see an evolution of characters and Luka did envolve a lot He was potrayed as the typical rich guy that meets the independent woman that makes him wake up to what his life could be if he continued in his lifestyle The true redemption of a bad boy Make it a series, please


    Gladys Mills

    I received this book as a ARC member for an honest review I loved the book The story is clear and understandable Luka is great and strong I like how he steps up to his problems and meet them head on I am glad he went to Ciara and asked her straight out about her job And I am glad Ciara told him the truth Honesty is always best Their love grew after that I am fearful for their lives the way Vittore was coming after them What is he planning for them I can t wait to read the next book


    Frances Hardy

    Who s Running The Town The story started with each person having his and her own agendas Ciara is an ambitious person who has an agenda and will stop at nothing to succeed She makes a mistake when she obtains Intel about the mafia Just getting interesting Can t wait for the next book.


    La"el Richards

    This is a Hard OneI absolutely hate Ciara so much, but I am about to read the second book I have never hated a character so much Anyway this was a nice read other than the fact I wanted Luka to her the minute he found out her secret.


    Venus Beverley

    I am glad I waited and read both books together, absolutely loved this series, and yes you got me hooked At this time I would say I would read anything form this author There were some developments that I just didn t see coming Wow Loved it, definitely my style.


    Deatrice Farrior

    Run This TownI loved this story Luka and Ciara were great together and the love they had for one another was great I m glad everything turned out the way it did If you re interested in a book that will keep your attention to the end you need to read this.


    Sandra

    Too Political This was an interesting read It was based on Luca running for mayor however, there could have been less politics and romance Hoping the next installment will wrap everything up neatly.


    NancyL Thompson

    Not what I thought I ve read several of Me Blacks books and I must say this 1 was lacking The story line was wrong He was way to young to make a credible mayor and the story skipped in spots I have to shake my head on this 1


    ILoveToRead

    Great storyAlthough this was listed as a BWWM Mafia romance, I don t think it should have been because the hero wasn t in the mafia Great story and great conclusion in book 2 Definitely a sweet read.


    Cheryl Graham Petit

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Sadie Black weaves a story of suspense, action, secrets, turmoil, romance, and love Characters are great, the setting was good, and the writing was easy to read and flowed well.


    Sonya

    I enjoyed the book and this is a new author for me I look forward to reading of what she has to offer.


    Ophelia Darby

    Ready to read next book I like the growth development of main characters.


    HI5O

    GoodThe storytelling and characters were well developed and entertaining Although love came a bit too quickly I could understand how it could happen.


    Shirley

    Luka and Ciara will run it, I hope Loved the book Can t wait for the next one Loved chemistry between Luka and Ciara It had some hot scenes, but not enough of them, lol


    Ann"g

    Not Good I don t know where to begin, so I will end with this This book could have been better I did not feel the chemistry between Luka and Ciara.
