   Blurb: Dangerous and feared. Those words describe my future husband. Who just so happens to also be my ex-boyfriend. It’s complicated. Two years ago, he broke my heart when he left me to do his father’s bidding. After months of crying, I finally accepted he was gone and wasn’t going to look back. That maybe he’d never loved me at all. I never wanted to see Luca again. Now a cruel twist of fate has signed me over to him in a heartless deal. I’m his. He thinks he did me a favor, but I feel like I’ve been given a death sentence. He doesn't want to get married because he still loves me. No, he did it for money. More power. I’m going to be a mafia wife. And there’s only one way out of it. Death. But as it turns out, someone else doesn’t want me to marry the ruthless Luca Bianchi. And if he has his way, I’ll see that early grave.      

Add to Goodreads: 

Code of Silence by Shantel Tessier BLEW MY EVER LOVING MIND. This isn’t my first book by this author and definitely will NOT be my last! I’m completely obsessed with mafia and arranged marriages, second chances, dark as my black heart romance... So naturally, I NEEDED THIS BOOK IN MY LIFE. 

Luca (who is absolutely FUCK HOT) and Haven (who I fucking ADORE) invaded my mind and heart in such a way that I cannot even explain!! I could NOT get enough of them, which is why I wanted SO MUCH MORE OF THEM! Gah, they. are. everything!! 

Just by the prologue of this story... I’m telling you, Tessier has this amazing way of pushing the boundaries with every book she comes out with!! I knew that I was in for a TREAT when it comes to this book and she delivered, as always! I devoured this book as quickly as I could, but not wanting to do it too fast because I wanted to savor every bit of Luca and Haven and their story in the mix of all the mafia business! 

There are so many layers to Code of Silence that carry so much depth, have twist and turns, violence, secrets, deception, angst, emotion, and a romance that will set your kindles on FIRE! 

Luca and Haven have something so chaotic, wild, emotional, intense, and so passionate that you can feel it bleeding through the pages!! Their off the charts chemistry and second chance held me captive!! I love them so hard! 

Shantel Tessier absolutely KILLED IT with Code of Silence! Dark, gritty, raw, and everything I love, which is why she’s an automatic one-click author for me! Not only did she bring us Haven and Luca, but the secondary cast of characters was just as intriguing! I cannot wait for more of ALL of them and the delicious Dark Kong’s! 

Tessier always brings it with every book she comes out with and when I’m craving some dark and twisted, she never disappoints! 

I NEEEEED MORE and I’m so thrilled for more of these cast of characters and this series! 

Five dreamy stars: 💫💫💫💫💫

Luca and Haven were in love and headed towards their happily ever after when Luca disappeared out of nowhere leaving Haven heartbroken and devastated. Years later,
Haven returns home from a run surprised to find that she's been sold by her father to the person she hates and loves more than anything in the world.

Haven's hurt and furious, wanting nothing to do with the man that abandoned her all those years ago. Unfortunately for her, her resistance is futile. Luca never wanted to leave Haven in the first place, and now that he has her back, he's never going to let her go.

Code of Silence is an action-packed, dark mafia romance that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Luca and Haven have an obvious connection that time did nothing to destroy. I enjoyed the flashbacks that provided more of their backstory and one hot af steamy scene that I'll not soon forget!

Shantel Tessier knows how to bring the blood, sex, and violence! That's why it comes as no surprise to me that aside from the notable sexual encounter, the gory scenes were the highlight of the story for me! The gruesome detail of it all made my dark little heart happy.

As much as I liked Luca and Haven as a couple, the side characters stole the show as far as I'm concerned. I was supposed to be focused on the story in front of me, but all I kept thinking about were the stories to come. The Kings, Emilee, and Nite were by far more intriguing characters, and I couldn't be more excited to get their books in the future!

I recommend this one to fans of the author's previous work and dark mafia romance in general.
