REVIEW: THE POWER OF A WOMAN by Gina Whitney & Leddy Harper

December 8, 2015

Jordana Albanese grew up in a world spun with lies, secrets, and multiple sins. Her father, Gene—reigning king in the Mafia for the last decade—never protected her from his underworld dealings—La Cosa Nostra. She learned at a young age that in order to survive in her world, one must be dominant. She wore the shield of control on a daily basis, but she deeply yearned to slip it off and dispose of it. Except, letting it go would mean letting it all go. And she didn’t want that. She learned of a compromise—where she could only let go of control in private, behind a closed door, while receiving orders from him. Not simply to be controlled, but to be dominated. The only problem was that her ambitions cut bone deep. Deeper than a belt across her ass. Deeper than the marks from the restraints he used to subdue and pleasure her. The permanent marks left were not visible to the human eye. They were profound wounds—scars—on her soul that only she could experience and draw strength from.
And that’s where she found the perfect balance in the two. Her submissive tendencies served her well in the bedroom. While in public, she was every bit as dominant as her male counterparts.


"All of us live with a demon inside. Some days, you control the demon. And other days, it controls you. But one thing that never changes is that it's always hungry. It feeds on lust and longing. You may slumber, but the demon never sleeps. It tempts you into crossing every line you've ever drawn, and all the while, it tests you, haunts you. And once it has turned your loved ones into enemies, the demon has consumed you whole".

WoW!!! What an amazing MAFIA EROTIC ROMANCE BOOK!!! I have read a lot of Mafia/mob books..well, who wouldn't want a story where the hero is such an alpha, bad-ass and f*cking hot mafia boss right? But No words can express how good this book is. You know that feeling when you wanted to make a review yet you cannot form any coherent words because it's just is. That's how I felt after I finished this book. In fact, when you just read the blurb, it says it all. No sugar unnecessary twists and turns...just so straightforward that will make you eager to turn the next page because you can't wait to know what will happen next. The author each both made something in the story that makes it exemplary. The mafia and erotic romance was just a perfect blend. BDSM is slightly present but complemented to the mob character Stefan portrayed.

And oh?The cover!!!!Just as perfect as the Title! It relays and portrays so much more. It was actually what piqued my interest first. I was intrigued what this power of a woman can do in the mob world. As you go along with the story, you will not just be in awe with the plot but more importantly how both authors made this story so much more.

All in all, this is really a good book. A must read. Highly recommended.
My parting words are...
This is exactly what I needed.

Leddy Harper

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped. 
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females. 
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

 Gina Whitney

She's published six novels so far. Blood Ties(PNR), Beautiful Lies, Saving Abel, Forgiving Gia, Luca, and Avenging Us(Rocker 3). When she's not writing, you can find her with friends and family. She resides in Massapequa, NY with her two beautiful boys. Reading has always been a passion and obsession of hers. You can usually find her typing furiously while shouting obscenities over her latest WIP. Her guilty pleasures are: a good laugh, being snarky, espresso, Pistachio ice-cream, alternative music, sunflower seeds, I.P.A's, twizzlers, and above all steamy swooning angst filled novels. She's pathologically obsessed with anything to do with royals, Games of Thrones, White Queen, Vampire
