Liliana Scuderi has been in love with Romero from the moment she first saw him. After her sisters were married off for tactical reasons, she hopes she might be allowed to choose a husband for herself, but when her father promises her to a man more than twice her age that hope is crushed. No begging can make him change his mind. 

Romero has always ignored Lily’s flirting. Her age and status made her off-limits but even someone as dutiful as him has only so much control. Wanting her when she’s supposed to marry another man could mean war between New York and the Chicago Outfit, and Romero has always put the Cosa Nostra first. 

Lily suspects her sisters and Romero would risk everything for her, but is her happiness worth that much? Is love worth a war between the Cosa Nostra and the Outfit? 


Liliana and Romero.... Finally... The chemistry they share has been brewing for 3 whole books and now we finally get a story for them. Isn't that exciting? YES.

For those of you who have been living under a rock and have not read this awesome series, this is all about the Mob. And each book tells us the story of a different couple. And this time... Is Liliana and Romero.

“I remember the way Romero had looked at me at our Christmas party. as if he saw me for the first time, really saw me as a woman and not just a stupid child.” 

Bound by Temptation is such a nice title for the book because Liliana has been tempting Romero ever since she put her eyes on him. He eyed her too, let's be honest but he couldn't do anything because she was under age and from a higher status. In this book that is all thrown out the window because the temptation just becomes too great and they have to cave in to it.

These two break almost every rule possible in here. First off Liliana is not married so she has to maintain her innocent (bullshit) and she can't date. It's impossible specially with a guard. But they ignore it and for most of the book they hide their relationship from everyone, having to sneak around to be together. I honestly thought they would be discovered every single time. I was on the edge for them the whole time.

One of the things I greatly appreciated in the book was that we have two characters that should follow the norm and forget about each other but because they love one  another they stay together,. And they will fight whoever says otherwise.

Liliana really had a hard time. With her mother sick and having to put up with her stupid father... And on top of that being engaged to a man three times her age... It's a lot. And she really is affected by it but does not let anyone know. She's really strong.

“He'd seemed safe, like there was no way he could possibly hurt me no matter the provocation.” 

Romero is as loyal as you can get but rules are meant to be broken and he will lie to his boss and to almost everyone and risk his head in order to have Liliana. It's so sweet, but truth be told they could get killed for it.

This story is filled with steamy sex scenes that are even more exciting because they are prohibited. And because we are dealing with the mob expect a lot of gunshot fires, getaway cars and a lot of people getting killed. It's the norm in here.

Also we get to see inside the lives of the previous characters and they will still go through their ups and downs and we get to see everything. Yay!
