An Arranged Marriage Standalone Mafia Romance.
The first time Cassio met his fiancée, she called him ‘Sir’.
After losing his wife, Cassio is left to take care of two small children while trying to establish his rule over Philadelphia. Now he needs a mother for his children, and someone who can warm his bed at night.
But in a traditional world as his, choosing your wife is duty not pleasure.
Rules have to be followed. Traditions heeded.
That’s how he ends up with a woman—a girl barely of age. She might not be what he and his children need, but she’s wicked lovely and a sweet temptation he can’t resist.
Giulia always knew she’d marry a man her father chose for her. Only she never expected to be given to someone much older.
Suddenly she’s supposed to be a mother to two small children when she hasn’t even held a baby in her life.
Giulia quickly realizes that Cassio isn’t interested in a relationship on equal footing. Her mother always warned her that men of power like Cassio don’t tolerate insolence; yet, tired of being treated as a nanny and clueless child-bride, Giulia decides to fight for her vision of a happy family.
My thoughts 💭
I enjoyed this book. There was a little age gap but I didn’t mind it. Giulia was forced into a marriage to secure her fathers standing but she didn’t let that stop her from fighting for the type of marriage she wanted. Cassio was looking for basically a nanny and he got far more than he deserved with Giulia. They overcame their issues and were able to come together and make a happy family. I definitely recommend this well written and interesting read!
