Today, I am reviewing Mafiosa Princess – Omerta by Liza Malloy, the fifth book in the Mafiosa Princess series, a contemporary romance.
In a world of secrets, silence is the most valuable weapon…
Blurb: Giada Conti has everything she’s ever wanted. She’s planning her dream wedding with the love of her life. She’s nabbed an internship at an interior design firm. And she and her fiancé are back in the good graces of both families.
Luca is just as shocked as Giada when a former lover turns up at their doorstep with a boy who looks like him. But he’s even more stunned by Giada’s response. Just as the weight of their shared secrets grows too heavy to bear, Luca must face his biggest threat yet.
Grappling with secrets of her own, Giada starts to understand the true meaning of omertà as she turns to an unlikely savior for Luca.
Each book in this series keeps outdoing the previous publications. After finishing Omerta, I can hardly wait for the next one. I must say, it’s been a long time when an author was able to make me feel so many emotions while I read. I’m happy to say Liza Malloy has done this for her Mafiosa Princess series, especially her latest release Omerta.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I hope my review doesn’t sound vague. Let’s start with Giada Conti, the star of this series. Just when I thought she was moving forward with maturity and growth to her character, she takes a huge step backwards in this novel, and I loved it. I mean, she thinks nothing of using a certain someone. Then there is the constant need to change her “fiancé” instead of accepting him for who he is, because love is about acceptance, not molding them into what you want the person to be.
Luca, oh man, as awesome as he is, he also does something very, very wrong, and involves an innocent bystander to cover his trail. Wow LOL. Was I upset with what these two did? No. It just kept me reading and wanting to see what would happen in the next book. I tell you, I wish this was a TV miniseries because it sure has the makings for one.
Finally, we have Adrian. Saver of stray dogs, a shoulder to lean on, and a man who always does the right thing and has morals. But something happens and even Adrian takes a huge step backwards. My fingers are crossed he isn’t going in that direction and that it’s all a trick to infiltrate a certain organization and get his revenge. But even if he doesn’t, I still want to find out what he’s up to and how this will pan out for him.
I can’t say enough about how much I love this series. The secondary characters are top-notch in Lorenzo, Alessio, Marco, Gabriella, etc. They bring richness to the novel and help the trio move the plot along.
As always, the author doesn’t mess around. She gets us to point A to point B and only shows what we need to see while giving a quick tell of what we don’t need to see to flesh out the setting. Well done.
If you haven’t read the series yet, do yourself a favour and get the first book. If you’ve been reading the series, be sure to pick up Omerta. I’d say this is my new favourite of the books.
Have you been reading the Mafiosa Princess series? If so, do you agree with my review for Omerta? If you haven’t read any of the books so far, would you be willing to now?
