Mafia Romance Review & Recommendation

Title: The Darkest Temptation 
(Bk 3 in the Made series)
Author: Danielle Lori


A fortune teller once told Mila she’d find a man who would take her breath away. She refrained from telling her it would be literally while Mila ran for her life.

Having always done what is expected of her, Mila dresses the part, only dates college boys with exemplary backgrounds, and doesn’t ask questions. Not about her papa’s absences or his refusal to let her set foot in her birthplace—Russia.

Suffocated by the rules and unanswered questions, Mila does what she’s always wanted to. She boards a plane to Moscow.

She never expected to fall for a man on the way. One with unexplained wealth, tattoos on his hands, and secrets in his eyes. But it doesn’t take long for his caress to become a rough grasp muffling her screams.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Unfortunately, a Russian winter is the coldest of them all, and Mila soon learns the only way to escape intact is to do the impossible and thaw her captor’s heart.

The Darkest Temptation has been on my most anticipated reads list since it was announced. Every book Danielle Lori writes from here to eternity will be going on that same list, because she has never let me down! She's earned her spot on my unicorn author list by giving me three of my favorite mafia romances of all time. I've fallen in love with her writing style, her characters, and her stories so much that I can confidently say, she's one of the most talented writers I've ever read.
She is the kind of author that has you hooked from the first page and holds you hostage to the last. Every sentence you consume makes you wish a hundred more would follow it. Once you get lost in her words, you never want them to end.

Speaking of never wanting things to end.....


I feel that right now in my soul! I savored every single letter on the pages of this book! I drug out my reading experience as long as I possibly could, because I knew the more indulged myself, the closer I was to the inevitable.


Milah and Ronan stole my heart, and if you give this book a chance, there is no doubt in my mind they'll do the same to you. Their incredible banter, chemistry, and the overwhelming sexual tension pouring from the pages captivated me completely. Milah and Ronan couldn't be more different people, but they compliment each other in the most perfect way. I couldn't get enough of them, and I can only hope to get a glimpse of them in future books. I don't want it to be proshchay .


That's all I'm going to say about this story, because I don't want to spoil it in any way. Each moment of it is perfection. The Darkest Temptation is one of my favorite books of the year, and if that doesn't tell you how good it is and convince you to read it, I don't know what will!


Mafia romance fans, this one's for you!

This entire series is amazing! 
Do yourself a favor and read the whole thing!
