🎧Machiavellian (Gangsters of New York Book 1) from Bella Di Corte on Audio!🎧
I hungered to be seen.
There were three things I knew about Capo Macchiavello:
He was gorgeous.
He was reclusive.
He was considered one of New York’s most savage animals.
And he wanted me as his wife. A simple arrangement – you do for me, I do for you. Nothing owed, no expectations. Except for one: never leave.
Life was never that simple, though. By the age of twenty-one, I was parentless, jobless, and homeless, and I had come to learn the hard way that nothing was ever free. Even kindness comes with strings.
Capo might’ve been the only man to ever see me, but I had made a vow to myself: I would never owe anyone anything. Most of all, the man I called boss.
I killed to stay hidden.
Mariposa Flores thought she owed nothing to no one, but she owed everything…to me, the ghost the world had once called The Machiavellian Prince of New York.
As a child Mariposa endured a tragic loss that has shaped the entire course of her life. She struggles just to survive and is alone in the world except for Keeley, her best friend and her family. When she takes a risk, it leads to an unexpected opportunity that brings Capo into her life.
Capo was born and raised in the mafia and the heir to become head of a powerful family until treachery and betrayal emerged. Since then he is keeping a low profile while he sets his plan for revenge into motion until Mari comes into his life and there isn’t anything he won’t do to keep her.
Capo and Mari’s journey takes us on an intriguing emotional ride. It is a story of deep enduring love between soulmates which when tested proves that they are so much stronger together than apart. I listed to an audio copy of this story and the narrators did a great job of bringing out both the characters and the emotions of this story.
