Publisher's Summary

She’s a romantic at heart, living in the most unromantic of worlds....

Nicknamed Sweet Abelli for her docile nature, Elena smiles on cue and has a charming response for everything. She’s the favored daughter, the perfect mafia principessa...or was. 

In the murky waters of New York’s underworld, Elena’s sister is arranged to marry Nicolas Russo. A Made Man, a boss, a cheat - even measured against mafia standards. His reputation is darker than his black suits and ties. 

After Elena’s first encounter with Nicholas, she realizes he’s just as rude as he is handsome. She doesn’t like the man or anything he stands for, though that doesn’t stop her heart from pattering like rain against glass when he’s near, nor the shiver that goes down her spine at the sound of his voice.

And he’s always near. Telling her what to do. Making her feel hotter than any future brother-in-law should. Elena may be the Sweet Abelli on the outside, but she’s beginning to learn she has a taste for the darkness, for rough hands, cigarettes, and whiskey-colored eyes. Having already escaped one scandal, however, she can hardly afford to be swept up in another.

Besides, even if he were hers, everyone knows you don’t fall in love with a Made Man...right?

😞

I loved this book so much that I was interested in listening to the audio version even though I've never listened to an audiobook before.
I was very disappointed in the voices.
I thought the girl would have a softer but mature voice and Nico had a lower smoother tone in my head. None of these voices are sexy. Lame!

Boring book

The story was not believable. It just never made sense that Elena would act like she really liked Nico then, when it was decided she would marry him, she acted like she hated him. Much of the dialog was between Elena and herself was based on, did she like him, why he wouldn’t like her etc.

A shame the performance does not live up to the book

Love the story. The performance, however, simply does not match it. The voices were not as imagined and dislike the female actor doing male voices as well. Found it difficult to listen to.

I enjoyed the book

I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next book since it shows there are several more coming in the series!
