Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.
One down. Many more to go.
My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.
Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.
Now, I’m in charge.
Men bow before me.
Except for him—the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but I’m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. He is my enemy, even if he doesn’t know it yet.
I won’t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.
By the time they realize I’m coming, it will be too late.
They tried to take everything from me.
But where they failed, I will succeed.
Unless he becomes my weakness.
Vengeance of a Mafia Queen is a good read. It's a mafia romance read that has a good storyline. Catarina had some bad things happen to her when she was younger, and she used that to become the strong, independent woman she now is. She has worked her way into mafia power and now has her eyes set on revenge. Massimo is a great character too. Massimo is not would Catarina expected, and he rocks her vengeance plan. I liked Catarina and Massimo together. This one is a big book. I'm not a fan of big books because I worry about being too long to keep my attention. I didn't have to worry about that with this one; it kept my attention. I'm up in the air about what I think about the ending, but it's a good read overall.
