"What are you going to do with me?"
"Whatever the hell I want."

In Manhattan, tensions are rising.
In a play for power, the Rossetti family has made a decisive blow, crippling their rivals—an act that has forced the Fiores to make a desperate move to maintain their supremacy.

Many miles away, Luca Davis, a young medical student, has no idea his life is about to change.
No idea that everything he's been told about his  life has been a lie.
Enter Domenico Rossetti, the ruthless Mafia prince.  Powerful and unforgiving, he's a savage in a suit—and the one who holds the cards when it comes to his new captive.

But when the war escalates and both are forced into seclusion, the two men are faced with a new threat: the rising sexual tension between them.
You don't fall for the one person you're supposed to hate, but it's a temptation neither can resist.
Because falling in love with the enemy isn't only wrong—it's forbidden.
And the cost for defying everyone will be their lives.

Forbidden Mafia Prince is the first book in USA Today Bestselling Authors Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank's M/M mafia romance duet.

ARC received for an honest review
Two of my favourites dipping their toe into the mafia-gay-romance pool?

Heck yeah!

Luca and Dom's story is a bit stockholm-syndromey, but hey, the heart wants what the heart wants. and as much as they hate each other, they want each other

I absolutely adored Luca, his life is upturned but like Gloria Gaynor said, he will survive.

Dom is a bit of an enigma wrapped in a riddle, and I can't wait to unwrap those layers nt he next book.

It did take me a little while to get into Forbidden Mafia Prince (I am sure that is to do with my covid brain fog more than anythig else) but the last say 30% really took off, and  now I am impatiently waiting for the next installment.

It is gonna be a ride! But until then...

Luca + Dom

Luca is 24 years old and very happy in his med-student life.
Until today - when he got kidnapped by this hot mafia guy.
Hot mafia guy Dom is super happy that he finally found Luca -
who's the only son of his family's enemy.
But now dad wants Dom to stay low and hide in their Casino's penthouse.
With the little doc.


Well. I hate mafia romances. πŸ˜‚
But this was an Ella and Brooke book, so I had to read it. And it was... well,
next to all the bloody and violent scenes... 
it was cute and sparky and and sexy and so very Stockholm-Syndromy. 
That's not really my thing at all. But the two guys were cute.
Tough mafia heir Dom and the cute and adorable
med-student Luca. Cut away all that crime sh*t and it would
be an adorable love story.
It got way better and very exciting in the end -
and I can't wait to see how we'll get that happy end in book #2!

I'm also not a fan of turning one normal-length book into two shortish ones.
I hate waiting, I will have forgotten everything once the 
second book arrives! Why not just make one
amazing book with lots of exicitement and danger and
an epic love story?

Anyway - this wasn't bad at all - it's just not my genre and not
my kind of reading style - this 2-book thing. But mafia-fans
and series-fans will love this!

FORBIDDEN MAFIA PRINCE was a very dangerous
and sexy and mafia-ish M/M love story!

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew

before elementary school was her quiet time.
